T.J. Maxx is a great store when it comes to getting fantastic deals on clothes and household items. But, if you know the right tricks, you can maximize the savings every time you shop there. Here are a few tips to consider.
Look for the Yellow Tags
T.J. Maxx uses yellow price tags to draw attention to products that won’t be marked down further. Keep an eye out for these tags. Make sure to grab everything you like and can afford. You never know if and when these same items will hit the shelves again.
Double Check the Price on Everything
Sometimes when items are marked down, not all of the item get a discount tag. Make sure you check the prices on everything, before you head to the checkout counter. This way, you’ll be totally confident that you’re paying the lowest possible price.
Check for Better Deals on the Amazon App
When you’re browsing the aisles at T.J. Maxx, some deals may seem too good to be true. The “compare at” prices listed on most items tend to be a bit higher than the actual price you pay at other local retailers.
Because of this, it’s best to keep your phone handy and check the price (via Amazon) of any products that seem to be offered at an unbelievable price. While the price you pay at T.J. Maxx is often lower anyway, sometimes the tags lead you to think you’re saving more than you really are.
Skip the Store Credit Card
Like many other stores, T.J. Maxx offers an in-store credit card that gives customers points when they spend money. But, these points only add up to a 5 percent discount, which is less than the 10 percent typically rewarded by department store cards. While the 10 percent discount on your first purchase may be tempting, it doesn’t outweigh finance charges of future purchases.
These are just a few ways to save at T.J. Maxx. If you’ve never shopped there before, it’s definitely worth it to drop in, to see what the popular chain has to offer.
