The stores really get you when they do the cash back on your next shopping trip.
My order from Gap in a recent blog post, I tried my very best to make around $100 so I can maximize my savings. If you think about it in math terms: the bigger the denominator, the smaller the percentage. On top of the deal I got, GAP CASH! Every $50 you spent, you can get $25 on a later purchase. I took advantage of that Gap Cash this week.
When I need to make a certain minimum (in this case $100), I will add EVERYTHING I want to my cart. I mentioned before, I really have to like or need something for me to exceed my maximums. I add items for $3 to over $20. I ALWAYS STICK IN THE SALE SECTION! I AM NEVER A FAN OF OVERPRICED “NEW STYLES”. Once I went through all sale sections and am ready to check out my total was over $275. No way in hell I will be spending that kind of money in one shopping trip! I start deleting items, asking myself if I want to spend that money on the item? what clothing will she need for this upcoming season? how long do I think this will fit her for? Is this her true size, or just on sale?
