After filing for bankruptcy, Bed Bath & Beyond has stopped accepting its iconic blue coupons - but don't throw them all out just yet.
When the retailer launched its closing sales on Wednesday, most stores stopped accepting those coupons that were a staple of the company's marketing program for decades.
But at least three other retail chains are stepping in, saying customers can bring in their Bed Bath & Beyond coupons for discounts at their own stores.
The discount chain Big Lots said it will accept Bed Bed & Beyond coupons, even expired ones, at its stores through May 7.
Shoppers who bring in the coupons will receive 20% off their entire purchase of $50 or more.
Ohio-based Big Lots operates more than 1,400 stores across the country.
The Container Store said it will accept a "competitor's blue coupon" for a 20% discount off a single item. The offer is valid through May 31 and cannot be combined with other discounts or sales or used to purchase a gift card.
The Container Store, based in Texas, operates more than 95 stores in 33 states.

The company's gift cards and certificates will be accepted through May 8. Returns and exchanges will be accepted through May 24.
