Name-Brand Clothing and Accessories
Most major department stores, specialty stores and big-box retailers that sell name-brand clothing and accessories regularly offer in-store coupons and online discount promo codes. These are savings that you simply won’t get on Amazon.
“You can easily spend at least 20% more buying name-brand clothing from Amazon compared to clothing-specific retailers such as Lands’ End, American Eagle or Macy’s,” says Kyle James.
We found a Cole Haan Payson Leather Tote on Amazon for $270. The same handbag was marked down to $143 on Neiman Marcus’s Last Call e-commerce site – nearly 50% less. If you’ve spotted a fashion item on Amazon that you’d like to buy, do some comparison shopping first. As long as it’s not a hot-ticket item that may sell out fast, you may want to wait until another retailer selling the same item has a sale (for example, an end-of-season clearance) or offers an online discount code, James recommends.
