Warm Up Your Budget With These Strategies to Save on Men's Outerwear

It’s that time of year again. The air gets chilly, the days get shorter, and now your budget can get a boost when you shop for men’s outerwear. Whether you’re looking for the latest in rugged outdoor coats from Sierra Trading Post and Eastbay from favorite brands like Patagonia and The North Face, or prefer a timeless luxury wool peacoat from a high-end store like Nordstrom or Macy’s, you can find it on sale online, guaranteed.

However, sales are just the start of your savings. Follow the rest of these shopping tips for hot savings on the gear you need to stay warm this season.

How to Earn Cash Back at Ebates

Cash Back at Ebates is set up so that you can earn money every single time you spend money on eligible orders at all of your favorite stores like Bon-Ton, Cabela’s, and more. It works like this: Ebates will give you a percentage back of every eligible online order you place, and even some in-store orders at participating stores. This money back is called Cash Back, and all you have to do is shop and earn it.

Some stores offer Cash Back when you shop in-store, like American Eagle, while other stores’ offers are only valid for your online shopping sprees. Check Ebates to see what percentage back you can earn and how many ways you can earn at your favorite stores that sell men’s outerwear.

Shop Sales and Sale Sections to Save

There’s no doubt that sales and sale sections are the classic way to save when shopping. During big sales events like Friends and Family days, seasonal and holiday sales, and other semi-annual or annual sales events, you can find markdowns of up to 75% off or more on men’s outerwear at top stores like Backcountry.com. Most stores also have a special clearance section where merchandise can be marked down and priced to move.

If you always shop sales, you may never pay full price for your outerwear again. I always wait for the end of winter sale when winter outerwear is marked down so low. Next winter, I’ll have a brand new, timeless coat, and know I got it for a steal.

Share for Savings

Countless stores offer a discount on your next order when you sign up to receive store emails. Usually, when you first go to the website of a store that offers this, a pop-up window will prompt you to enter your email address and get your discount. If you see this, take advantage of it! You could get 15% off at your favorite store on men’s outerwear just for signing up.

Use Promo and Coupon Codes When Shopping Online

Promo codes are one of the best things ever. If you’ve ever used them, you know what I mean. If you’re new to them, get ready to be blown away! Head over to Ebates and look at any of the pages for your favorite outerwear stores or stores that sell outerwear. You can potentially find promo or coupon codes that are good for big discounts, like an extra 40% off outerwear or a free shipping deal. Once you have a code you want to use, just enter it during checkout and the savings will automatically be added to your order! It’s that simple, and using a code can make a world of a difference when it comes to saving money. Use one every time you shop to really maximize your savings.

Free Shipping

If you’re shopping online, you’ll love having your order show up on your doorstep, but you won’t love the exorbitant delivery fees that are sometimes tacked on. Look for stores that offer free shipping on every order for the sweetest deal, or at least try to find stores that have a low minimum you have to spend in order to get free shipping. You may be able to find a promo code for free shipping, too. In my family, L.L.Bean is a favorite place to buy always on-trend winter coats. Luckily for us, they offer free shipping on every order, every time, with no minimums! Shopping here has definitely saved us some money over the years in just the free shipping alone.

Join Rewards Programs

These days, many stores offer rewards programs that provide an easy way to earn discounts just for being a member of the program, and for doing the shopping you’d be doing anyway. The Bloomingdale’s Loyallist program, for example, is one of these rewards programs that lets you earn points for all orders you place, and then you can earn gift cards for every few thousand points you rack up. EXPRESS offers its EXPRESS NEXT rewards program to customers where points can be earned on orders including men’s outerwear. There are so many of these money-saving programs available, so always check to see if you can join one where you shop the most.

Use Your Store Credit Cards

If you have a store credit card, you really should be using it when you can. These cards usually come with really great incentives, like points for every dollar you put on your card that you can cash in later for free shopping credits or extra discount coupons.

If you don’t have a store credit card at your favorite store, you might want to consider opening one. Lots of stores will give you a serious discount on the first order you place with your card. If you’re shopping for men’s outerwear for all the boys in your family, or are just looking to buy one expensive designer coat, opening a store card and taking advantage of the initial discount can help you save some money right away.

Don’t forget that some store credit cards can be used at more than one place or at other stores in a company family. For example, your Gap credit card can also be used at Old Navy and Banana Republic. This means you can earn rewards three times as fast and get triple the value and discounts at your favorite stores without needing to have more than one card in your wallet.
