I absolutely love shopping at Ross Dress for Less. I buy almost all of my clothes and shoes there. Why would you pay full price for name-brands when you can get the same stuff at Ross for 40-60% less? Yes, it takes a little more time but totally worth it in my book. Today I have a couple smart tips to save EVEN MORE money at Ross. Here are the two best days of the week to shop at Ross and save BIG. Hope it helps.
1. Shop on a Monday for New Markdowns
It’s obviously smart to shop at Ross right after they do their store markdowns.
Thanks to reader Kylie, this Monday afternoon the BEST day to shop.
Specifically, she said, “I was head of clearance at Ross and MONDAY is the day we only do mark downs.”
So by shopping on a Monday you get first dibs on new clearance deals and have actual opportunities to save money.
If you’re an avid Ross shopper, it’s smart to politely ask an employee what day they do their markdowns as it’s possible markdown days can vary from store to store.
2. 55 or Older? Always Shop on a Tuesday
Ross stores across the country offer a 10% discount to those 55 or older every TUESDAY when you sign-up for their “Every Tuesday Club”.
I called several Ross locations to verify this information and it certainly is true.
To make it happen, you’ll need to visit the Ross customer service desk to get your Every Tuesday card. Be sure to bring a valid photo ID with your date of birth visible.
I was even told that the 10% discount is good on clearance and regular-priced merchandise.
So if you’re over 55, be sure to shop on a Tuesday from this point forward.
By doing so, you’ll also be able to take advantage of recently marked-down merchandise from the day before.
Bonus “Discount Tip”
From blog reader Sarah, “Start shopping from red zone – clearance area. If you find anything wrong for the product you really like, don’t hesitate to ask an additional discount. Usually they can offer additional 10% on top of everything.”
Great tip Sarah.
I’ve actually done this myself more than once. You have to look at it this way, they really want to get rid of clearance stuff, and if it has a small blemish, they REALLY want it gone. So for them, offering another 10% off is totally worth it.
