Fall Wardrobe Savings Strategies
1. Get discounts for recycling unwanted clothes!
Several national outfit and shoe retailers (like H&M, North Face, American Eagle and Forever 21), will provide you a voucher for up to 10% off you next wardrobe purchase in turn for bringing in a bag of used clothes, shoes and belts you no longer want! They take part in the I:CO recycling program that turns cotton, leather along with other raw materials into new products, such as home insulation and sofa cushions. To find available stores offering this money-saving option, visit I:CO Trader Partners.
2. Discover the lowest prices in nano-seconds!
Have you noticed a blouse, skirt or any other item you’d love to add to your closet? Prior to buying it, do a search for the item on Beso.com. Fashion search websites show you instantly which retail stores is selling at the lowest price, if it’s offered for sale on eBay or if there’s another item which looks just like it.

3. Get money back for price drops!
Feeling frustrated when you buy an item only to find its price got reduced just a day later? Many stores (like JC Penny, Macy’s and Target) will refund the difference if an item goes on sale during a certain time frame from the date of purchase – usually seven to 14 days. And tracking all your purchases along with their prices is easy: Register the item at sites like PricePinx.com and Slice.com. If the item goes on sale or is being sold for less, an email notifying you will be sent. Then simply bring your receipt to the store’s customer service desk and ask for your cash back.
