Everybody loves a great deal! That’s why so many people go to outlet malls. If you don’t believe me, try going to the Chicago Premium Outlets on a holiday weekend.
It’s ridiculous! People come from near and far looking for bargains. They pack the parking lots, side streets and neighborhoods with one goal in mind—to go shopping.
Someone even told me he saw shoppers parking on the interstate (I-88) just to get in on the action.
That being said, the first way to save money at the outlet mall is to park legally. No deal is worth you getting your car towed. That puts you back hundreds of dollars in towing costs. Besides, who needs the frustration?
Yesterday at lunch, my friend told me her family loves to go shopping at the outlets. And I couldn’t help but to blurt out some easy ways to save more money there. She just smiled because she knows how much I love to save money and help people do the same.
So I thought it would be a good idea to tell you too.
The best way to save money at the outlet is to become a VIP. I know you’re already a very important person, but you need to join an outlet membership program. For example, Premium Outlets has a VIP Club.
Joining is easy to do. When you sign up with Premium Outlets, you get a free VIP coupon book (a $5 retail value) for the outlet stores. You’ll find all types of deals inside like a 30% off, spend $50 and get 20% off your entire purchase $25 off a $100 purchase and so much more.
And that’s not all. You’ll also get exclusive offers that are only available to VIP members to rack up even more savings. These are printable coupons that you can use to slash your outlet purchases even further.
Father’s Day (it’s June 16th) is right around the corner. If you’re planning on heading to the outlet mall be sure to ask about any membership clubs, so you can save more money.
Happy Shopping!!! You savvy shopper YOU. 😉
