The Secret That Trader Joe's Doesn't Want You To Know About, According To An Employee

August 31, 2016 by Caroline Pirozzolo

For a babe on a budget, Trader Joe’s is basically a dream supermarket. TJ’s offers tons of products that are the exact same things you’ll find at more expensive grocery stores (we’re looking at you, Whole Foods!), at much lower prices. Also, Cookie Butter – need we say more? It turns out that, according to one employee, there is also one way to try products at Trader Joe’s that the store doesn’t exactly openly advertise.

Reddit user slothh55 says that the store’s sampling and return policies are some of the most relaxed of any grocery store – you can basically sample and return anything you want.

“Return anything for a full refund,” he says. “Receipt not even completely required. We encourage people to try stuff and the staff recommends products to customers. If a customer doesn’t like it, we want to fix that. I returned 2 moldy bananas for a lady a few days ago, didn’t bother me, although I thought it was odd, as bananas are 19 cents each.”

Skeptical about trying something? Essentially, even if you’ve opened it and don’t like it, you can return it. However, the employee says Trader Joe’s is also willing to let you sample, anything (yes, anything!) while you’re in the store, too. (And most employees are happy to do it for you!)

“I LOVE when customers ask to try products!!!!” he says. “Yes, you get to eat as much as you want and the remainder will be given to crew members.”

So there you have it: Not only is Trader Joe’s super cheap already, but you can basically try that product you’ve been eyeballing on your last few trips to TJ’s for free. Just one more reason to love our favorite grocery store!
