C oupon masters, here's a question for you: Have you ever had to pay extra to take advantage of a "buy one, get one free" offer because the price of the "free" item exceeded the price limit stated on the coupon? BJ's Wholesale Club will pay a $40,000 penalty as part of a settlement with the state attorney general's office for giving Maryland consumers "buy one, get one free" store coupons with fine print that capped the value of the free product. In some cases, the language capped the coupons at less than the price of the product, so consumers had to pay extra for the item they thought they would receive for free, according to the attorney general's Consumer Protection Division.

Oh, no. Not another "members-only" store coming our way.A news report in Monday's Anne Arundel County Sun says BJ's Wholesale Club, awarehouse shopping club based in Natick, Mass., is negotiating to move into the Festival at Pasadena shopping center on Ritchie Highway.This is not good news -- not because the area is already flooded with discount and warehouse stores, and not because a members-only store will cost money to join, but because it will require another identification card.That's right, another identification card.

After successfully campaigning to ban ground-based fireworks, Howard County authorities face another difficult task: making sure everyone knows about the new law. The County Council outlawed the devices, most of which explode close to the ground, last month. It will be illegal to sell those types of fireworks in the county after June 9, and the fine for using the ground-based devices will be up to $250. Although June 9 is less than two weeks away, many stores are not aware of the law, and authorities have begun a campaign to inform area retailers by distributing fliers and meeting with store owners.

NATICK, Mass. - BJ's Wholesale Club Inc., the third-largest U.S. warehouse-club chain, said second-quarter profit rose 27 percent as higher gasoline and fresh food sales more than offset the establishment of a reserve to pay claims related to the theft of customer credit information. Net income in the quarter that ended July 31 rose to $28 million, or 40 cents a share, from $22 million, or 32 cents, for the second quarter last year, the company said. Per-share earnings exceeded the 37 cent average estimate of 18 analysts surveyed by Thomson Financial.

Several credit-card companies, financial institutions and BJ's Wholesale Club continued to warn consumers this week that a possible security breach of the Massachusetts retailer's computer system may have resulted in credit-card information theft. It is believed that a small fraction of BJ's 8 million members - possibly hundreds of people - were affected by the database breach. In a letter to its customers this week, M&T Bank Corp. said it did not receive the name of the retailer, but was told by Visa USA that some fraudulent transactions believed to be associated with the incident had been reported in the United States, Europe and the Asian Pacific region.
