Pre Black Friday savings

Black friday shoppingEvery store you go into this time of year has great savings. I often found that in the past on Black Friday everything is so picked over that there is no point to even looking for good deals. But this past week alone I have saved 42% by taking advantage of sales and promotions pre black Friday.

At Charlotte Russe leggings were BOGO FREE! Since I will be wearing them all winter long I bought two pairs for $10 total. Also there were a pretty pair of over the knee boots on sale in the store I was shopping at but already they only had one size left and it was not my size. So I went home and the next day I was prepared to drive to another store to find my size but when I checked online I saw that these boots were on sale and there was free shipping on any purchase, no limit! So I just bought them right then online for $26.99. Plus when I purchased the leggings the day before I received an email for 20% off my entire next purchase so I used that discount code at checkout. The boots were originally priced at $44.99 but were marked down 40% + 20% discount so $21.60 and free shipping. That’s 52% savings.

Charming Charlie has a bunch of discount coupons floating around. I used two of the bonus cards in two separate transactions and saved $30 on 2 dresses 2 scarves and a sweater!!

There are a ton more deals out there in the weeks leading up to Black Friday, don’t forget about using a cashback website or a discount giftcard website to pile on savings!

I know there are a ton more retailers with fall boots and sales going on! These are just some good ones I wanted to point out!!

P.S. if you going to shop online always check cashback websites first! My favorite is TopCashBack

P.S.S. Another great way to save is through discount giftcards. I’ve saved over 20% just by purchasing a giftcard online and then shopping in store!
