Weekend Shopping: Finding the Best Discount

We only have a few days of shopping before Christmas. Friday is actually the last day of ground shipping for most retailers. Almost all of our favorite stores have taken a second markdown but discounts vary vastly.

One would expect to universally save 60% off women's clothing but Saks is a little tricky this season. There, designer clothing is reduced 30% to 60% off. The more popular the brand, the lower the Saks discount.

Below is a comparison chart of Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue. As usual, Barneys is the clear winner across the board. The next and final markdown usually happens mid-January.



Here is your cheat sheet:

Hi Lila, will Saks have additional markdown (I think it was extra 40% off sale) on Dec26th before noon? Thanks in advance. You’re the best!

Yes, you’re correct. I think it’s 50% off before noon but in last year’s, designer merchandise has been excluded. Designer Sunglasses are usually part of the promo though...

What about more contemporary designers?

Contemporary is 60% off everywhere.
