More and more lately I am shopping online for clothes and I have discovered quite a few sites that help me be thrifty when shopping for clothes online.
20 Websites Thrifty People Use To Save Money On Clothes
Please note: Some of these sites I have personally shopped at and some of these sites I have researched reviews for before sharing with you. Those I haven’t tried are on this list simply because I feel confident that I would be willing to try them myself when the right deal came up, and therefore feel okay about sharing them with my readers.
1. Free Cycle
My town is a bit too small for a good stream of Free Cycle sources of free clothes, but I took the time to search larger centers and found that Free Cycle has a lot of free clothes, especially infant and maternity clothes.
Online Consignment Stores
I have personally used Twice to purchase some dress pants fairly recently and I was very happy with how their site worked. Twice consigns women’s clothing only and only certain brands. (get a $10 credit when you sign up through my referral links)
I have used ThredUp several times for both my daughter and I. Thredup has clothes for infants , kids, teenagers and women, as well as purses, shoes and accessories. (get a $10 credit to ThredUp when you sign up through my referral links)
Swap.com consigns infant, kids and maternity clothing as well as toys and other child related items.
Schoola is an online second hand clothing store (donated goods not consigned) that does something pretty neat. It donates a fairly significant portion of their profits to local school (you can even pick which one you want to donate too if you want). They sell clothes for starting at 12 months and going up to adult sizes for both boys and girls. The adult sizes are found in the teen section. ( get a $15 credit to Schoola when you sign up through my referral links)
Daily Deal Sites
I have personally used Zulily several times now and am very happy with my purchases. One draw back is there are no returns so make sure you are very familiar with what you are getting .For instance I stick to brands I already own items of and love on Zulily .
7. Rue La La
If you like designer brands, Rue La La is the daily deal site clothing site for you.
8. Brad’s Deals
More of a deal hub than a daily deal site Brad’s Deals keeps you up to date on the best sales around the web for your favorite name brand clothing.
With shipping of just $2.95 for orders under $50 and free shipping for orders over $50, Overstock.com receives a thrifty green light. How great the deals are really depends on what you are looking for and when. I would suggest hopping around at a few sites to compare prices before ordering.
One friend of mine is so in love with 6pm that whenever I go to her house lately she points to at least one or two items she bought at 6pm since my last visit and tells me how I just have to share it with my readers. I did a bit of surfing around 6pm.com and I agree some of the prices really cannot be beat. Best of all 6pm.com offers free standard shipping on all orders regardless of size.
Places To Find Free Shipping Codes and Discounts
There are other coupon/free shipping code companies out there but Retailmenot is my favorite. I find the site simple to use and I rarely come across a code that no longer works.
Sites That Offer You Cash Back On Purchases
12. Top Cash Back
Top Cash Back offers cash back at stores that I couldn’t find in other cash back programs. I also like that you get more cash back money when you choose a Amazon card over a paypal payout. That additional 2.5% makes Top Cash Back cash back deals often higher than any other online cash back company.
13. Mr Rebate
Offering rebates at 2000 different online stores Mr Rebate is worth checking out.
Ebates run great promotions that can result in high cash back values for stores like Walmart, Old Navy and more.
Sites That Offer You Points For Purchases That You Can Cash In For Gift Cards
Often Mypoints has higher point values in their shop and earn area than other point programs or cash back programs. A benefit I like about using Mypoints is often the shop and earn section will share discount codes you can use towards your purchase as well or instead of points.
Additional Ways To Save On Online Clothing Purchases
Cardpool is my favorite place to buy gift cards at a discount. I buy them for those stores we shop at over and over again online and off line. It is a great way to stack up savings
I often see stacks of clothing in a certain size available for sale as a lot in my local buy and sell facebook group.
Sign up for emails from all you favorite stores and you are sure to get special discount codes from time to time as well as heads up on the best sales of the season.
Bonus Tip: Don’t Forget To Be A Thrifty Ninja And Stack The Savings
Here is an example of how you can use the various 20 sites above to stack savings.
- You sign up to receive email updates from Brad’s Deals and see that a dress you wanted is deeply discounted today at Kohls
- You have a discounted gift card from Card Pool you can use to purchase the dress
- You are on Kohl’s email list and have a discount code you can enter
- (If you don’t have a discount code from an email you can search for one at RetailMeNot.com to see if there is one out there)
- You make sure to shop through a cash back site such as Ebates to receive money back one your purchase (don’t forget to compare to see which site is offering the best cash back)
In the end not only did you get the dress at good discount but you saved even more with the help of discounted gift cards, discount codes, and by purchasing through a cash back site, making a great deal a steal of a deal.
