One of my readers Jagoda suggested I do a post on shopping for deals. Honestly I really don’t have any strategy or plan when it comes to shopping. I only buy clothing that is on sale with (or without) a coupon. Signing up for text alerts from your favorite retailer is another way to keep up with sales and saving passes. The alerts have discount codes that can be used at the register. Macys and Lane Bryant provide this service for customers and more are getting on the bandwagon. I also find that end of the season sales have a plethora of clothing options. You might have noticed lately Summer clothing is being steeply discounted to make room for the Fall collections. If you are an online shopper like me, before I click the purchase button I search for coupon codes. The two sites I use are Coupon Cabin and Retail Me Not. Ive used their codes and saved money and sometimes (depending on the promotion) got free shipping!
Speaking of getting a deal, the pants Im wearing today I got from Macys a few weeks ago while visiting my sister in NYC. Retail these pants were priced at $120 but I got them for $32! How you ask? In the store, the pants were on sale for $75 but online the pants were being offered for $32. I called Macys and asked if they would price match and I was told if I brought in proof of the online price they would. I took the screen shot of the webpage on my cell phone to the store and they gave me the online price. Just by simply asking, I ended up saving a whopping $88 on these pants! Now that’s what I call a deal!
What are some of your tips on shopping for deals?
Have a wonderful weekend!
