I have a little secret that I want to share with you…. THIS WEEK is the best time to purchase Christmas gifts. I am sure you are saying, “It’s not even Thanksgiving yet!” While that certainly is true, if you shop NOW, you will have the best selection possible AND you can take advantage of discounts but you have to act fast! I am not sure we will see these promotions again this year. Here are a few current promotions for you to consider:
SAKS – Earn a promotional gift card now through October 21st. Use the promotional code OCTGIFTSF.
- $35 Promotional Gift Card with your $250 purchase
- $75 Promotional Gift Card with your $500 purchase
- $200 Promotional Gift Card with your $1000 purchase
- $600 Promotional Gift Card with your $2000 purchase
- $900 Promotional Gift Card with your $3000 purchase
BLOOMINGDALE’s – Earn a promotional gift card now through October 23rd. Use the promotional code: SAVEMORE.
- 20% off orders $100-$249
- 25% off orders $250-$499
- 30% off orders $499+
NEIMAN MARCUS – Earn dollars off through October 21st. Use the promotion code: SAVENOW.
- $50 off $200
- $100 off $400
- $275 off $1,000
Other stores have promotions as well so be sure to check those out.
Ok, so here is my strategy: pick a big box store and purchase ALL of your gifts from there. If you plan to spend $75 on mom and $75 on dad, finding gifts at Bloomingdales will automatically save you 20%! Also check your credit card promotions. I currently have one on my American Express for Bloomingdales: spend $100 get $25 back. So in the example above if my order totals $150, Bloomingdales will take 20% off ($30), bringing my order total to $120 and American Express will credit me an additional $25. This means I will get $150 worth of merchandise for $95! #shopsmarter As always, exclusions apply, so read the fine print.
