If bohemian aesthetics, artistic patterns and funky designs are your thing, Anthropologie is bound to have what you’re looking for. From clothing, shoes and accessories to home goods and beauty items, Anthropologie has it all. If you’re worried about how much you spend here — prices tend to be on the higher side — you can stock up and still save when you use these tips.

1. Sign up for the Newsletter

The newsletter gives you access to all things Anthropologie — including special sales and discounts.

2. Shop the Sales

Anthropologie is known to have some pretty killer sale items, so be sure to check what’s available both online and in the store.

3. Join Their Loyalty Program

Sign up for Anthropologie’s loyalty program, Anthroperks, to get early access to new arrivals, special discount days, a birthday treat and more. The birthday treat alone is a major perk of this free program. If you sign up at least 30 days before your birthday you’ll receive a 15% off coupon to use, so sign up today! (Here are more places that give you free treats on your birthday.)

4. Score Coupon Codes

Check places like RetailMeNot and Coupon Cabin to stay up to date on any recent coupon codes you might be able to use.

5. Buy Discounted Gift Cards

Check sites like Raise.com, Gift Card Granny and CardCash for Anthropologie gift cards that you can purchase for less than face value.

6. Use the Wishlist Option to Your Advantage

Anthropologie has sales pretty regularly and can alert you of when items on your wishlist are on sale. So, if you can stand waiting, it’s worth putting the items you’d like on your wishlist (available once you sign up for an Anthropologie account) and waiting for the email alert to arrive.

7. Wait for Items to Return

Since Anthropologie has such a lenient return policy — all merchandise, except furniture and other oversized items, can be returned at any time — you’ll sometimes find items on your wishlist that were unavailable may suddenly become available again, and often for a discount. So wait before deleting items from your wishlist, and you just might be pleasantly surprised one day.

8. Get a Price Adjustment

Keep your Anthropologie receipts for 14 days. If the item you purchased goes on sale in that time the store will issue you a refund for the difference between what you paid and the sale price. This applies to online purchases, as well.

9. Ask About a Teacher Discount

Teachers and teacher’s assistants get discounts at Anthropologie, typically July through September. The dates vary but it’s always worth bringing your teacher ID along with you and giving it a try.

10. Follow Anthropologie on Social Media

Add Anthropologie on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest to catch any special deals they shout out to their followers.

11. Order Online & Pick up In-Store

Rather than paying a shipping fee, when you find what you like on Anthropologie.com, enter a location to check availability at nearby stores, then click “Buy Online & Pick Up in a Store” and add it to your basket. Once you check out, pickup details will appear next to applicable items in your cart and on the order review page. Orders are held for three days.

12. Read Blogs

Another way to stay in the loop on Anthropologie discounts and sales is to read fan blogs like Effortless Anthropologie and Breakfast at Anthropologie.

13. Follow Sales Cycles

If you’re diligent, you will likely find a pattern in the sales at Anthropologie. For example, on the website, items tend to go on sale around midnight on Sundays, so checking back early Monday morning is generally a good way of scoring deals.

14. Use a Cash Back Credit Card

While Anthropologie doesn’t offer its own credit card, you can still pay less for your items by using credit cards with solid rewards. There are plenty of credit cards perfect for shoppers. Most of them require a decent credit score so it’s smart to see where you stand before applying — you can check two credit scores for free with Credit.com.

Hello, Reader!

Thanks for checking out Credit.com. We hope you find the site and the journalism we produce useful. We wanted to take some time to tell you a bit about ourselves.

Our People

The Credit.com editorial team is staffed by a team of editors and reporters, each with many years of financial reporting experience. We’ve worked for places like the New York Times, American Banker, Frontline, TheStreet.com, Business Insider, ABC News, NBC News, CNBC and many others. We also employ a few freelancers and more than 50 contributors (these are typically subject matter experts from the worlds of finance, academia, politics, business and elsewhere).

Our Reporting

We take great pains to ensure that the articles, video and graphics you see on Credit.com are thoroughly reported and fact-checked. Each story is read by two separate editors, and we adhere to the highest editorial standards. We’re not perfect, however, and if you see something that you think is wrong, please email us at editorial team [at] credit [dot] com,

The Credit.com editorial team is committed to providing our readers and viewers with sound, well-reported and understandable information designed to inform and empower. We won’t tell you what to do. We will, however, do our best to explain the consequences of various actions, thereby arming you with the information you need to make decisions that are in your best interests. We also write about things relating to money and finance we think are interesting and want to share.

In addition to appearing on Credit.com, our articles are syndicated to dozens of other news sites. We have more than 100 partners, including MSN, ABC News, CBS News, Yahoo, Marketwatch, Scripps, Money Magazine and many others. This network operates similarly to the Associated Press or Reuters, except we focus almost exclusively on issues relating to personal finance. These are not advertorial or paid placements, rather we provide these articles to our partners in most cases for free. These relationships create more awareness of Credit.com in general and they result in more traffic to us as well.

Our Business Model

Credit.com’s journalism is largely supported by an e-commerce business model. Rather than rely on revenue from display ad impressions, Credit.com maintains a financial marketplace separate from its editorial pages. When someone navigates to those pages, and applies for a credit card, for example, Credit.com will get paid what is essentially a finder’s fee if that person ends up getting the card. That doesn’t mean, however, that our editorial decisions are informed by the products available in our marketplace. The editorial team chooses what to write about and how to write about it independently of the decisions and priorities of the business side of the company. In fact, we maintain a strict and important firewall between the editorial and business departments. Our mission as journalists is to serve the reader, not the advertiser. In that sense, we are no different from any other news organization that is supported by ad revenue.

Visitors to Credit.com are also able to register for a free Credit.com account, which gives them access to a tool called The Credit Report Card. This tool provides users with two free credit scores and a breakdown of the information in their Experian credit report, updated twice monthly. Again, this tool is entirely free, and we mention that frequently in our articles, because we think that it’s a good thing for users to have access to data like this. Separate from its educational value, there is also a business angle to the Credit Report Card. Registered users can be matched with products and services for which they are most likely to qualify. In other words, if you register and you find that your credit is less than stellar, Credit.com won’t recommend a high-end platinum credit card that requires an excellent credit score You’d likely get rejected, and that’s no good for you or Credit.com. You’d be no closer to getting a product you need, there’d be a wasted inquiry on your credit report, and Credit.com wouldn’t get paid. These are essentially what are commonly referred to as "targeted ads" in the world of the Internet. Despite all of this, however, even if you never apply for any product, the Credit Report Card will remain free, and none of this will impact how the editorial team reports on credit and credit scores.

Your Stories

Lastly, much of what we do is informed by our own experiences as well as the experiences of our readers. We want to tell your stories if you’re interested in sharing them. Please email us at story ideas [at] credit [dot] com with ideas or visit us on Facebook or Twitter.

Thanks for stopping by.
