“Saving” is the Name of My Game

Posted on Updated on

I love spreading the word about great deals I come across. It’s part of the reason I started blogging.

For example, I recently posted on Facebook and Instagram these great deals:

–at Banana Republic, I used a store coupon (not credit card-related) and also got an additional 40% off markdowns to get two sweaters and two semi-precious stone necklaces for $46! The necklaces retail for $98.50 each and the sweaters retail at $69.50. $336 value for…that’s about 86% off! Pat on the back, please!

–online at Forever 21. I utilized a promotion for free shipping and 50% off markdowns to score these two necklaces and two bracelets for $13! I know it’s not Tiffany & Co. but come on, I’m on a budget!

And now, there’s an amazing deal going on in the Birmingham-area to keep those savings coming! A local organization, the Junior League of Birmingham, is selling a Shop Save & Share coupon. The $40 price tag allows coupon holders to save 20% at hundreds of participating establishments until November 2nd. They offered to let me give the coupon a “test run.” It took me less than 24 hours to put it to use.

I scored these pieces at one of my fave new boutiques, fab’rik in Homewood.

Those fierce, red caged sandals were marked down to $24. I got the tank as well because they were having a Buy One, Get One Free promo on sale items! So, with the Shop Save & Share coupon, both purchases were under $24!

I’ve also used the coupon at Old Navy for children’s clothes and for gifts. Yes, it can be used at major chains locally, like Old Navy, Gap and Belk.

It can also be used at luxury retailers that recently opened up at the Summit shopping center in the Birmingham area: Kate Spade, Calypso St. Barth, Kendra Scott and Lilly Pulitzer ! They were featured at a special kick-off event for the Shop Save & Share coupon. The 20% off could add up really quickly at these stores! Here are a few highlights from that event I attended on behalf of B-Metro Magazine!

Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to make a small investment to get a big return! If you’re in the Birmingham area, there is still time to get a Shop Save & Share coupon and take advantage! It expires November 2nd. A bonus, the proceeds from the coupon go toward projects that benefit women and children in the community. You can shop with a good conscious, knowing you’re helping others in need!

      amen! I never pay full price, so everything I buy is usually a great deal. But it can sure add up quickly!
