Yesterday was a great mail day! When I opened up my mail box, this came tumbling out:
A post card with DSW Rewards savings! There are two coupons on the back of this baby, each for $10 off any purchase (including clearance shoes/accessories) online and in-stores. One deal is good “now,” May 16-27, and one deal is good “later,” June 11-22. I immediately SnipSnapped my savings; since these coupons are only redeemable during such specific time frames, I’ll want to get expiration reminders from the app. I really hate to miss a DSW deal. The DSW clearance section is always chock-full of seriously discounted shoes. Many pairs are just around twenty buck and, when purchased with a $10 off coupon, are incredibly good deals. (Check out how to sign up for DSW Rewards and how I scored one tote bag, one evening clutch, and one pair of rhinestone encrusted dress sandals at DSW for just 40 bucks, using store sales and a DSW Rewards coupon.)
Are you SnipSnapping your DSW Rewards? Make sure you mark them private. These coupons are linked to your DSW Rewards account and are for one time use (by you) only.
How are you going to stock up your summer shoe wardrobe with your Rewards dollars? I have my eyes on these babies by BCBG:
I’ve been waiting for this! Every so often DSW (my favorite shoe store ever) will run a free purse with purchase promotion. I save all of my shoe shopping excursions for these events, because DSW tote bags are awesome and make great companions to the mall or the beach. Starting today, March 7, DSW is running a new promotion for a free Icon tote bag with any $29 purchase. This offer is exclusive to DSW Rewards members (check out Mo’ Money’s DSW store guide to find out how to become a Rewards member and save with mobile coupons at DSW). DSW bags go fast; make sure you SnipSnap this deal and hurry on over to DSW to score some spring kicks and a completely free purse in one go.
If you love shoes, and you hate spending money, you really should shop at DSW. DSWs are filled, filled, filled with gorgeous name brand shoes; everything’s already marked down, but there’s also always a giant fairy tale world of clearance shoes in the back of each store and online. You can get a pair for up to 80% off the original mark-down price. For real.
If you join the FREE DSW Rewards program, you’re automatically even more hooked up. When you’re a Rewards member, you’ll earn 10 points for every dollar you spend on regular (DSW mark-down) priced items and 5 points for every dollar you spend on clearance items. Once you earn 1500 points (spend about $150), you’ll get a $10 gift certificate in the mail. You can totally mobilize your offers, by snipping them with SnipSnap, but make sure you mark them private, since these offers are just for you! (They’ll have your name on ’em.)
Here’s the best and most mobile part of being a Rewards member: Every so often, DSW will email members offers for totally free stuff. This past weekend, I just so happened to need shoes for a wedding. So I was pretty ecstatic when I woke up Saturday morning to an offer for a totally free tote bag with my $40 purchase. All I had to do was buy the shoes and handbag I needed anyway (I saved $98 off the DSW prices by shopping the clearance section), read the cashier the bar code from the email on my iPhone at checkout, and BAM: the free tote bag was mine.
So, I got all of this for just about 40 bucks:
Even better? DSW’s Facebook page runs surprise promotions for fans: today, if you were one of the first 100 people to post a picture of yourself with your free bag, you were given a chance to receive a surprise offer in the mail. I can’t wait to see what I got!
