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 $400 and save $100 or an expenditure of $700 will earn you a savings of $175. The promotion is only online use the code SAKS74 at checkout.
There are designer promotions but the list is very short. The discount can't be used on Chanel, Louboutin or Valentino but there are lots of great top designers to which you can apply the code. We were able to use the discount on these Aquazzura shoes we've been eyeing, Chloe handbags-- including the popular Drew bag -- along with Dee Ocleppo, Dolce & Gabbana and Alexander McQueen. As a matter of fact, the savings can even be applied to sale merchandise.
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.
