For a long time, department stores have been luring shoppers with gift card shopping incentives. We’d prefer a straight discount over a gift card any day. It’s always more attractive to save money now than offered the promise of a gift card that either expires.
Good thinking: Shopbop is offering a shopping discount incentive that increases with the more you spend. The best part is that we just got early access. You can start shopping now and use the code GOBIG17 at checkout. Look for the items indicated ‘Select Style’. There are several more brand hold-outs than usual but the savings levels are better.
We wouldn’t mind using the discount on these Ferragamo Vara flats, which are a trending item for summer but not yet on sale anywhere. Discounted Prada sunglasses are also not a bad bet at this time of year. If you haven’t yet jumped on the bomber or varsity jacket trend you can start with this version from Kenzo our our favorite from Opening Ceremony. A Mira Mikati sweater is making us lust for permanent warmer weather.
You can also use the discount on sale items. This Derek Lam will come to just $600 from almost $3000, this denim jumpsuit comes to $350 from $1500 and this Suno blouse is $100 from $400. That’s about 75% off! (That’s where our mental math skills end.)
