Discount Discoveries: The Loft and Compound Savings

Peace y’all. If you’ve been as fascinated with the Loft this year as I have, then I hope you were able to capitalize on the Loft Shopping Party today. I mean, 30% off all full price items is attention grabbing, right?

Anyway, I received two Loft rewards cards ($25 each) when I bought my new coat during the friends and family event. Of course, I am not too fond of those rewards cards because of their usage limitations—minimum $50 purchase required and applicable only to full price items. Well, I found out today that when there are storewide offers on full price items like at today’s shopping party, we can use the rewards cards to compound our savings.

So, it’s like this. I’ve been stalking the Loft’s denim jacket ($69.50), and leather gloves ($34.50/pair), both still full price items. Today, they are 30% off, making the jacket $48.65 and the gloves $24.15. But wait, I slap my rewards cards on the table and the jacket becomes $25.63 and the gloves become $12.88/pair! Talk about a consumer surplus!

I was especially pleased because I called Loft customer service this week to ask about using the rewards cards in this manner and was told that I could not.

    The LOFT stores in CT always let me use rewards cards on sale items. It makes more sense for them to restrict to full price items, but they never have when I've used the cards.
