It’s the end of an era. After more than 50 years in business, Bed Bath & Beyond filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Sunday, April 23.

In a statement, the company revealed that its remaining 360 Bed Bath & Beyond and 120 buybuy BABY stores will remain open for now, with plans to eventually shutter all of these existing brick-and-mortar locations.

This is big news for loyal shoppers, many of whom have a stockpile of the retailer’s beloved 20 percent off coupons, which were renowned for almost never expiring (if you ever watched an episode of Broad City, then you’ll know how much people love these coupons). But there’s a silver lining in all this, too, because Bed Bath & Beyond’s closing sales are a chance to save big on cookware items, small appliances, and much more.

Below is everything you need to know about the best Bed Bath & Beyond deals to shop now, plus what to do about product exchanges and returns, gift cards, registries, and coupons in the days to come.

When Do Bed Bath & Beyond Coupons Expire?

If you’ve been sitting on a stash of Bed Bath & Beyond coupons, now would be the time to put them to use. Although they usually never expire, the company says that it anticipates it will stop accepting them after Wednesday, April 26.

Are Bed Bath & Beyond Gift Cards, Rewards Points, and Store Credits Still Valid?

If you have any Bed Bath & Beyond gift cards, you’ll have until Monday, May 8 to use them; after that point, they’ll be deactivated.

Shoppers also have until Monday, May 8 to redeem any store credits they might still have, and the company will continue to accept points via its Welcome Rewards points program until that date. (However, members aren’t receiving any Welcome Rewards on new purchases.)

Can You Still Make Returns and Exchanges at Bed Bath & Beyond?

According to the retailer, anything purchased before Wednesday, April 26 can be exchanged or returned for a full refund until Wednesday, May 24. Any purchases afterwards are final.

What Happens to Bed Bath & Beyond Gift Registries?

Although you can’t make purchases through Bed Bath & Beyond’s gift registry platform anymore, the company claims that you can still view lists. They also expect to partner with a new platform soon, which will allow customers to transfer everything over and complete their registries.

When Do Bed Bath & Beyond Closing Sales Start?

Bed Bath & Beyond’s going-out-of-business sales will kick off on Wednesday, April 26, with everything on sale both in stores and online for up to 30 percent off the lowest ticketed prices. But right now, you can still shop major markdowns on all kinds of top-rated items, including Bissell vacuums, Crock-Pot slow cookers, and other household essentials.
