I have to tell you about a trip I just made to Gymboree. Before I left I decided that if I found some good stuff, I would aim to get $50 in clothes to get the Gymbucks. I got there about 30 minutes before closing and then felt rushed to add up all my deals, ending up flustered at the register with a huge pile of clothing. I started to put stuff away when the sales clerk (Patrice) reminded me that the sale was actually 20% off the lowest price on the tag. PLUS I had a 20% off coupon.
When I heard that, I lost all control. I bought almost all of it. I bought clothing for children who aren’t even conceived yet. But I couldn’t resist the 0-3 month girls gingerbread sleeper. And all those cute boys sweaters. And some girls 3-6 month summer stuff. I have a friend in Texas. She’ll need that! Patrice was so patient, staying past closing time and was just as excited for my deals I as was!
So there I was, figuring the total would be at least $130. I braced myself for it. I knew I was getting several outfits for friends, so that eased the pain. But there was no pain. The total: $53! I added up the original price of all the clothing, and without sales and coupons it would have cost $341. I saved $288!
The best deals were bodysuits that ended up being between .65 cents (!!!) and $1.91. Boys sweaters were also a steal– $2.55! It allowed me to “splurge” on matching pants. I got 14 pieces in all. Those prices were even better than used items at my local consignment shop. Plus I got Gymbucks to redeem later!
So if you have a baby boom going on or want to dress your little one, you might want to grab a copy of Parent’s magazine for the 20% off coupon (I got mine in the September issue, not sure if they are in others) and go shopping! Quite honestly I’m considering checking out other locations if I can find another 20% off coupon And if you live in the Philly ‘burbs and end up at the Plymouth Meeting Mall, go see Patrice. She’ll set you up!
