6 Ways to Save Money at JCPenney
How to shop at your favorite store and save money at the same time
Are you a JCPenney shopper? From rewards points and special coupons to discount gift cards, there are many ways to save money on all of your purchases.
Add one or a few of these money-saving strategies to your bag of tricks before your next shopping trip and enjoy the bargains!
Stretch your department store dollars by signing up for the free JCPenney Rewards program. You'll earn one point for every dollar that you spend and receive a $10-off-any-purchase coupon each time you accrue 250 points.
Here's how to sweeten the deal a little further:
- Enter promo code 3008 or 3015 when you sign up to receive an instant coupon for $5 off any purchase.
- Earn double points the month you sign up. Then, make a purchase each month after that to continue earning double points for a year.
- Use your JCP card to earn an extra 25 percent in points.
- Download the JCPenney app to your mobile device.
- Shop on bonus points days.
Look at the bottom of your next JCPenney's receipt and you'll find an invitation to take part in an online customer survey. Jump on it before you forget!
Once you complete the survey, you'll be able to print a 10-percent off coupon.
Watch for Coupons
Check your Friday newspaper for a JCPenney sales circular. It often contains coupons for $10 off a $50 purchase and $15 off a $75 purchase.
Pay special attention to any circulars or mailings you receive around the holidays. They've been known to include coupons for $10 off any purchase of $10 or more. (That's free money.)
Search for Promo Codes
If you're placing an order online, be sure to do a search for promo codes before you check out. It's fairly easy to score a 10-percent off or free shipping code.
- DealCatcher.com is a good place to look for codes.
- Do a simple search for "JCPenney promo code" and you will find many options.
Tip: Not every promo code available online actually works and, quite often, they cannot be combined. Try a few and choose the best deal.
Gift cards are another way to save money and you don't need to wait for someone to give you one. Instead, purchase discounted gift cards through a service like Gift Card Granny.
By thinking ahead and paying less for a gift card, you can save up to an extra 16 percent on all of your JCPenney purchases.
Sift through the clearance merchandise on JCPenney's website and you may uncover a steal of a deal. The online store will have merchandise from all of the company's warehouses and stores, so the selection is much better than at your local store.
For the biggest bargains, check out the closeouts pages and sort departments using the "price low to high" option.
