3 Tips For Saving Money at Outlet Stores 

Get the Inside Scoop

Always view the store’s website before heading out. This way you can be aware of any promotions, sales or coupons they’re offering. If you’re shopping at an outlet mall, swing by customer service too where you may be able to find coupon books and information sheets. Ask about any loyalty programs and you can earn things like points for purchases, exclusive coupons, and notifications of sale dates.

Set a Shopping Budget

Any time you’re looking to save money it’s important to set a budget because it can be easy to spend more when you feel you are getting a bargain. This way you can make informed decisions about the cost of items you’re choosing from. It also helps motivate you to find the best deals: use your coupons, check the clearance racks and shop the sales! 

Find a Coupon

One of the great advantages of outlet stores is that their already lower prices can be combined with coupons! Just be careful because coupons that work at the outlet store rarely work at their retail stores and vice versa so be sure to read the fine print.

  1. Coupon is one of my favourite words! Ha! I usually check online to see if there are any promo codes or coupons before heading out to shop. I also check clearance/sale racks first.

  2. Thanks for these tips. Even if it is the holiday season, we must still practice being budget friendly or else, we’d be welcoming the New Year with empty pockets. I visit stores that have 3 day sales or search online for coupons to use.

  7. These are great tips, we found at outlets in US that you had to get the coupons… we don’t have them in Australia really so it was a bit strange for us but so worth it if your shopping in outlets.

  8. These are great tips! I used to love shopping at outlet malls before online shopping came around. I especially loved to buy things right when when the stores said they were going out of season because they would sell stuff for nothing!

  9. Do you ever use the app Retailmenot? It gives you coupons for all stores and breaks it down according to stores like Gap and then Gap Factory Outlet.
