Your biggest savings will come from store discount codes. There are a few ways to get these. First, you can call customer service and ask if they have any online codes they could give you. Or, you can check sites like Currentcodes.com, Retailmenot.com, or Savings.com. Some retail stores like Kohl’s and Torrid will mail special sales flyers with coupon codes to their store credit card holders (and some store cards offer an additional discount just for using them). Other stores like JC Penny’s and Lane Bryant have a text subscription you can subscribe to on your phone and be sent coupon codes in a text as they are available.
