Retail therapy feels a lot less like a waste of money when you can shop discounts as opposed to paying full price for items.
And department stores such as Belk provide that feel-good experience, simply because there is such a load of great stuff to find here and they’ve got plenty on sale.
When you feel like giving into that shopping addiction and want to stay within a budget, here’s what to do.
- Look for coupon offers.
The average shopper saves about $25 with a Belk coupon within one shopping trip. How much you can save depends on the value of your coupon, and Belk coupons vary from 5% to more than 50% off retail price, sometimes even including clearance.
- Shop when BOGO.
With BOGO deals of buy one, get one free or buy one, get one 50% off, you can boost your wardrobe because these Belk sales usually include storewide merchandise.
Even when they only have these promotions in select categories or select brands, it’s still going to be a decent bargain. Just think of your next favorite thing to do after shopping, say enjoying good food (?) – wouldn’t it be great to have extra savings for that?
- Wait for end of season.
Belk runs huge sales at the end of each season when discounts are as much as 50% off original price with an extra 30% off select items, so that’s up to 80% discounts for quality brands.
Wait for end of season if you can to get your summer/winter clothing because there’s no better sale running than at these times of year.
You’ll also be able to find handbags and other accessories seriously marked down during end of season sales.
- Spend qualifying amount and get Belk Bucks.
Belk Bucks is a coupon program from Belk that earns you discounts with qualifying purchases. For example, when you spend $75 in-store or online during special earning periods, you will receive a coupon of $15 off a $75 purchase.
If you spend double the amount, you will receive two $15 coupons for a future purchase. Belk Bucks coupons are included on your receipt when you shop in-store and are sent to your inbox when you buy online.
- Check for clearance items up to 80% off every day.
Clearance prices for women and men start at $4 for clothes and $12 for shoes, and this is every single day.
Also included in the clearance section are designer handbags, baby clothing, women’s plus, jewelry, and home items in a fantastic variety.
Do check clearance whether online or when in store for amazing prices and don’t forget that Belk adds new items here all time, so who knows what you’re going to find on your next visit?
- Enroll in Belk Rewards Program for money back in rewards.
Belk Rewards has three levels – Standard, Premier and Elite, bringing you more benefits the more you shop.
You get 1000 bonus points just for signing up, which is $10 back in Belk Rewards, 20% off all day, access to exclusive savings, early access to special promotions, birthday coupons, free shipping, and various other benefits depending on your membership.
Belk carries many great brands and the thing about it is that you don’t have to pay full price for upper hand items. Just keep an eye on when they run substantial discounts and only buy when you find a great deal on something you like.
