You cannot help but cheer for JC Penney, an American icon, even when it has experienced a few missteps. You will find that its affordable prices coupled with its weekly ads, promo codes, and BOGO promos, among others, can really stretch your dollars. You cravings for trendy brand names, such as Michael Graves, Bisou Bisou, MNG by Mango, and Jonathan Adler, will also be satisfied here – and at great prices, too!
Of course, you can still squeeze out a few more products for your dollars at the chain of retail stores aside from the use of weekly ads. Here are a few easy yet effective tips.
Shop the Clearance Racks
Your first obvious choice is to head to the clearance racks, which the chain usually has aplenty every day. The trick is in looking for the clearance racks especially when the products are spread over a large area. You can, fortunately, spend more time on choosing than on locating the clearance racks by asking a store associate where these products are in the store.
Use Free Shipping
Why pay for shipping costs when shopping online when the chain offers it for free? You may, however, not qualify for free shipping but don’t worry as you can still get it with a $25 minimum purchase albeit to any JC Penney store. You can also combine a promo code with free shipping to any store for more savings.
With the opening of classes, your children will require several sets of school uniforms. You can buy them, among other school supplies, at the chain’s dozens of stores at affordable prices, as low as $10 for pants without the applicable weekly ad. Be sure to buy these products on the off-season for even lower prices.
Price Match Often
Yet another way to save more pennies at the chain is to take advantage of its price match scheme. You should bring a copy of a competitor’s ad that shows the lower price for an item also available in the store, which will then be matched in price. You can also avail of a refund in case you have already purchased the product.
In all of these ways to save, you have to carefully understand the basic rules, such as the exclusions in the price matching scheme. You have to plan your shopping trip, including organizing the weekly ad coupons, before setting foot in the store to avoid impulse purchases, among other mistakes.
