As I mentioned earlier today, my hubby and I had an impromptu date night and we had some time to kill before a movie, so we headed to Old Navy & Target for some clearance sale shopping. I knew I had a Groupon expiring on January 28th for Old Navy & what better time to use it then when a clearance sale is going on. The Groupon was for $20 to spend at Old Navy & the Groupon cost $10 – so that’s a 50% savings right there if you just spend right around $20.
My Clearance Finds:
1 pair of khaki pants – $5.50
1 navy blouse – $13 (not a fabulous price but I thought it was cute)
1 men’s zip-up navy sweater – $4.20
Total: $22.70 before tax
Amount Paid after Groupon savings: $2.70 + tax
Total Amount Paid (including $10 Groupon amount): $12.70
When you factor in the amount I’d paid for the Groupon, I only spent $12.70 total for all 3 items! I also received a Super Cash voucher for an extra $10 to spend at a later date since I spent more than $20. The way the Super Cash works is that you need to spend $20 to use the $10 off coupon – so it’s like another 50% off coupon.
When you take advantage of a daily deal site discount + clearance prices, you can really save a significant amount on your purchase. This is why I’m such a fan of the daily deal site vouchers for online or in-store promotions. If you know that the store regularly has clearance deals, special promotions (which are not excluded on the voucher) then you just need to plan your shopping trip around a time when you can combine these discounts to maximize your savings.
How have you been able to maximize your daily deal site vouchers? Have you all taken advantage of your Old Navy Groupon vouchers yet?
