The 9 Best Marshalls Shopping Secrets, Revealed - Tips to Save Money at Marshalls
If walking the hallways isn't viewed as retail therapy, what then? After all, the low-cost retailer promises to be "never boring, always surprising". Whether you're going there to track down a last minute gift or save money on the latest fashion, beauty, and home trends, it's nearly impossible to leave Marshalls without a shopping cart full of deals. Just when you thought you knew all about your happiest place on earth, we found experts / superfans ready to share proven tips on how to make big savings, beat the crowds, and get the best bang for your buck. Read on, grab your wallet and go to the nearest store, stat.
Shop beauty products here.
Just because Marshalls and other low-cost retailers sell products at a fraction of the price doesn't mean they are skipping on quality. Take the beauty aisle, for example. "There are so many popular brands like Anastasia, bareMinerals, O.P.I., and Philosophy," Kristen Jones, the blogger behind A Classy Fashionista, told GoodHousekeeping.com. If you're lucky, you might even discover luxury options from Ole Henrickson and Stila. Still, follow the same Ulta and Sephora shopping rules: "Open and inspect all beauty items to check for breakage or fingerprints before buying them."
Pay close attention to the price tags.
Marshalls and other TJX Company stores - TJ Maxx, HomeGoods, Homesense, and Sierra - indicate discounts with the following price tag colors: white labels with no labels are normal prices, red labels indicate sale prices, and yellow labels indicate final sale prices (also known as best Deals).
Shop in the mornings on weekdays.
If you tried shopping in Marshalls on Saturday afternoon, congratulations for surviving the worst. "The best time to shop is on weekday mornings, when everything is neat, clean and well stocked," says Christine Lee of HomeGoods Obsessed. "Mondays are usually catch-up days after the busy weekend, so Wednesday, Thursday or Friday are your best choices." To really increase your chances of a one-of-a-kind find, visit Marshalls on Fridays when the stores fill shelves for the weekend crowds.
Sure, they are known for their wide range of clothing, accessories, and housewares, but you haven't shopped at Marshalls until you've filled your basket with Christmas wraps, tissue paper, and cards. Why? "You can find beautiful cards for under $ 2," says Jones. For what it's worth, the average price of a greeting card is between $ 2 and $ 4, which means Marshalls are on the low end.
Check prices when shopping.
It's easy to believe that if the price tags show the original price, you're getting the best deal - but that's not always the case. "I use the scan barcode option in the Amazon app to compare prices," Dianna Baros of The Budget Babe told GoodHousekeeping.com. To go beyond Amazon, try ShopSavvy or Shopular.
Take it business after business.
Do you know when you talk to your friends about your favorite Marshalls finds and they complain that their shop doesn't carry them? Well there is a reason. "Products are first launched in a few stores to see how well they work, and when they do well it becomes more widespread across the country," said Lee. If you hear about an item from a friend or social media, visit your local store ASAP. "The goal of every item is not to be on the shelf for more than 3 weeks. So act quickly."
Throw a wide net.
Although all four stores under the TJX umbrella are different, Marshalls has THE CUBE, a junior boutique. - There is still some overlap with the products they sell. "To increase your chances of finding a particular item, Lee recommends checking out other Marshalls stores such as HomeGoods, Homesense, and TJ Maxx. But remember, there is no guarantee that you will find exactly what you are looking for as products fly off the shelves quickly.
Open a TJX Rewards credit card.
If you make regular purchases at Marshalls or one of the other TJX Company stores, it is worth applying for a TJX Rewards credit card. When you open an account, you even get a 10% discount on your purchase. "In addition to collecting points for in-store redemption, you get exclusive access to shopping events and other perks," said Stefanie O’Connell, consumer savings expert at Marshalls. However, if you don't want to open another credit card, sign up for the free rewards program to increase your chances of winning gift cards and entertainment in-store.
Avoid the hassle and shop online.
Earlier this year, Marshalls announced they were finally opening an online store - and we're counting down the days. Although there are only a few details, the online shop will be launched this year and, according to Marshalls, "offer a mix of goods that differs from what our customers find in our shops". Until then, you can check out the TJMaxx website for inspiration.
