In today’s economic climate, everyone is looking to save money. You can continue to shop for new and sexy plus size lingerie and clothing and still saving some money in the process. You don’t have to sacrifice quality and style just to save a few dollars. Keep the following tips in mind and you will be sure to find some really nice plus size lingerie and clothing pieces to add to your closet or lingerie drawer without breaking the bank.
Store Credit Cards
One thing I have learned in saving some money is the power of the store credit card. Many stores such as Lane Bryant and Avenue track your purchases through their store by your credit card purchases. The more you use your Lane Bryant or Avenue credit card, for example, the more the company sees you as a loyal customer. Most even have some sort of loyalty program or bonus points program. Lane Bryant and Avenue do. Each time you use your store credit card you earn bonus points and receive discount bonus coupons worth real dollar amounts off your purchases. You also receive coupons monthly and sometimes even weekly giving you valuable discounts off your purchases. Make sure you do not go overboard. You don’t want to go into debt. Just use your store credit card for your normal spending on clothing purchases so that your spending habits can be tracked and coupons can be mailed out. A Lane Bryant employee told me that the more you use your coupons the more coupons the company will send you so make sure you use your coupons whenever you receive them. One final piece of advice, pay your store credit card off each month to avoid paying finance and interest charges which will render your discounts worthless.
Store Mailing Lists
Make sure you join your favorite store’s mailing lists and email lists so you will be notified of any special sales your favorite store is having. Many stores send bonus coupons out via email and regular mail so by joining their mailing and email lists you will be able to receive these special notices as soon as they become available.
A lot of stores send out special savings and coupons via their corporate Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter pages. So become fans and friends of your favorite store’s Facebook and Myspace pages. Don’t to forget to follow your favorite store on Twitter. You will be amazed at all the secret sales and coupon codes you will find out about by just simply logging into Facebook or Twitter.
Coupon and Shopping Portal Websites
There are many shopping and coupon websites that do all of the searching for you. By simply going to a site like Kaboodle or Tjoos you can find the most current coupon codes for your favorite online shops.
Sometimes just asking a store if they have any current coupons or special offers will land you a discount coupon so make sure you send an email off the customer service if you can not locate any coupons or discount codes for your favorite store.
Keeping these simple strategies in mind will ensure that you can shop till you drop for your favorite plus size lingerie and clothing pieces while still saving money.
