So what if we told you there’s a way to save even more at the discount retailer? Yes, it’s true. MoneyTalks News put together a list of tips that will help you get the best deals possible at TJ Maxx–check ’em out:
1) Wednesday mornings are the time to shop
We already told you that Wednesday is the best day to shop at TJ Maxx, but the time to go is in the morning. That’s when the stores re-stock inventory and items are marked down even more. The Krazy Coupon Lady says, “Most markdowns are made after store hours or before store opening, so morning shoppers always have first access to the latest steals.” She knows what’s up.
2) The biggest discounts happen in January and July
These two months are when retailers try to get rid of product to open up space for the new season’s inventory, so the biggest markdowns happen then. Think about it, by July, you’re not really buying anything new for summer and looking forward to fall shopping. Same with January with winter vs. spring shopping.
3) Yellow tags are a good sign
Anything at TJ Maxx with a yellow tag is marked down to its lowest price–so that’s when you will get the best deal on an item!
4) Follow TJ Maxx on social media
5) Defected items get you a better discount
Ratherbeshopping.com recommends inspecting the item you want to buy for any defects or imperfections (think broken zippers, snags, stains, etc.). If you find anything wrong with your item and it isn’t marked on the tag, ask a sales associate for an additional discount. After all, you are getting an item that’s not in perfect condition and therefore shouldn’t have to pay the listed price.
6) Discounted gift cards save you even more
You can save between 10 and 20% more at TJ Maxx if you use discounted gift cards, which you can buy from Carpool.com!
