We have become all too familiar with department stores’ gift card shopping incentives. You spend as much as you can for the opportunity to receive a gift card for a later purchase. More often than not, you get your gift card and think that you’re going to save it to buy something special. By the time you commit to the purchase, the gift card is expired. It’s all very disappointing.
Good thing, Saks Fifth Avenue is offering a promotion that doesn’t require to use a gift card at a future date. Depending on how much money you spend, you can save money off your purchase right now. For instance, if you spend $250 you can save $50, spend $450 and save $100 or an expenditure of $700 will earn you a savings of $175. The promotion is only online use the code AUGSPEND at checkout.
There are designer exclusions and the list has grown vastly from last year. The discount can’t be used on Chanel, Louboutin or Valentino but there are still some top designers to which you can apply the code. We were able to use the discount on these eligible embellished shoes we’ve been eyeing and eligible Rossi nude heels. This Alice & Olivia denim jacket with patches and this Mary Katrantzou shirt dress is perfect for post-Labor Day. The discount can even be used on Les Petits Joureurs bags. Take note, sale merchandise is eligible for the discount too.
Don’t hesitate, the discount only runs through Thursday. Next time Saks is offering a promotion it could be one of those tricky gift cards.
