If You Missed Cyber Monday Sales on Bras
No worries, I did too. But I don't usually buy my bras at retail prices anyway. If you know what size you are and how a certain bra fits on you and you are looking to get a good deal on that particular bra, here are my shopping secrets to saving money.
Sign up for sample sale sites like Rue La La, ideeli, etc. I've gotten so many great deals this way and you can also get credit for referring other people to sign up for them. Rue La La is my favorite for bras and other intimates as they often do feature lingerie brands. Cosabella is one I've seen there often, and it's very good for smaller band sizes and bralettes. You can get $10 in store credit if you sign up through me, using this link: https://www.ruelala.com/invite/amandasage .
Try Poshmark, obviously. I sell more than I buy there, but on occasion I can find awesome deals on brand-new bras and other clothing. I currently have new bras listed in sizes that are difficult to find elsewhere. I feature a lot of petite brands like Wacoal Petites, Itty Bitty Bra, and The Little Bra Company and often have sizes 32AA, 32A, 34AA, 34A, and 36A. Here is my closet link, and please note you can also click on my seller icon to see all of my listings (some of which are under Boutique and do not show up in the closet): https://poshmark.com/closet/amanda_sage1979
I'll sometimes get in touch with a rep for a lingerie brand and offer to review the bra I want if they give me a discount. Yes, this sometimes works. Other times they say no or don't get back to me at all, but it's worth a try. I recommend doing this through Etsy if you want to get in touch with individual sellers offering handmade bras. Some of them will even do a custom-made bra for you if you ask nicely (by which I mean, if that happens to be a service that they offer).
Sign up for email notifications. Some websites have sales at odd times when they are trying to move inventory to make room for new stock, and that's when you swoop in and grab whatever you want fast, often at very good prices.
Sign up for sites like Yazing, where you can earn cash back for shopping at sites like HerRoom (one of my favorite places to shop online for bras). It has site listings for "shop to earn" or "promote to earn," and you can also earn for promoting a lingerie or intimates website by posting or sharing a link like this: https://yazing.com/deals/herroom/AmandaSageBarnum
If you're looking for bras on Amazon, use Try Before You Buy as a way to make sure you never waste any money on a bra that doesn't fit and that you can't return. You can try up to six bras at once and pay nothing until the seven-day trial window is up. If you hate everything you try on, return all of the bras and go for another round. A credit card number is required to sign up. This is my affiliate link to the program: https://amzn.to/3G89p18
