The majority of Big Lots stores participate in the Buzz Club Rewards program, as of 2015. Shoppers can sign up for free in-store or online. A valid email address is required.
The Buzz Club Rewards program gives its members the ability to access sales flyers two days before the general public. Members are offered VIP shopping experiences and exclusive discounts. They are also able to use their Buzz Club Rewards cards to look up lost receipts for the purpose of merchandise returns.
Members earn rewards with qualifying purchases. These purchases must total $20 and include all full priced and clearance items. Ten qualifying purchases earn a 20-percent discount to be used on a future purchase of taxable items. Non-taxable items, such as food and prepaid cell phone cards, are not eligible for the 20-percent discount. The discount is valid for 60 days after it is earned and is not transferable to another person's account.
Buzz Club Rewards cards must be present in order to record qualifying purchases. A digital version of the card is available and compatible with Passbook and Google Wallet. A paper copy of the digital card may be printed and presented at the time of purchase. If a Rewards card is lost, it can be replaced via the Web or in-store.
