If you are anything like me, Saturdays are spent shopping. Online. In stores. Any. Way. I. Can.
I hardly EVER pay full price for items. A few of my secrets...
#1 - Promo Codes
** simply Google " (insert store name) promo code". Sites like retailmenot.com provide discount codes that people enter. Return the favor by entering any promo codes that you receive from stores.
#2 - Get Paid Back
** I subscribe to Lucky Magazine which, by the way, always has the BEST items which you can buy in normal stores. When you are a subscriber, you automatically are eligible for myluckyrewards.com. If you shop through myluckyrewards.com, you actually get a percentage of your purchase back. Once a quarter, they send you a check!!! No joke. I usually get a check for around $70 and almost every store that I purchase from participates in myluckyrewards.com.
#3 - Ask Your Friends
** my best friend Ju Ju Bean and I always text each other before we buy something to see if the other has a promo code or credit. Victorias Secret always sends those $10 rewards so if I know I'm not going to use mine. I give her the code. Sharing is caring!!!
#4 - Wait
** bottom line. I miss out on some items because I wait for them to go on sale but 99% of the time I find something similar for cheaper OR the item I want goes on sale and I'm able to get it. For designer items, H&M or Zara or Forever21 are likely going to replicate the hot styles so just wait it out.
#5 - Make Lists
** I make lists of items that I want. I put the brand that I'm obsessing over but describe the item so when I'm out at the cheaper places I can keep my eye out for something similar. My lists are a little out of control I have to admit.
So, before I head out this evening to shop, here are some promo codes that I'll probably use
