I guess Friday is “sensible day” at Bag Snob. I am doing what I can to help shopaholics like myself continue to have fun shopping even if things get a little tight. Well, sale shopping for one is the best way to get more for less. I went to the Fred Segal annual sale and the economy has hit the retailers hard but has been kind to shoppers because everything went from 50% off to 66% off this week. I got a pair of Alaia shoes that I would have NEVER considered even though it is kick ass amazing (see picture left) but it was $1495. Well now that it is $508, how could I say no? You should see them on, oh-so-orgasmic!! So a reader sent me an article about another way to ease the pain – credit cards that give cash back, not airline miles and useless “points” but actual cash money. According to the Newsweek blog, Discover® is the “most generous of the programs. It offers cash rebates as high as 20 percent.” You must shop through the Discover Shop site but the retailers include those that you go to anyway like Bloomingdale, Godiva, Apple Store, Zappos, Overstock, Sephora, Beauty.com, Lancome and Red Envelope, so it is in fact very useful! The cash rebate ranges from 5-20% but if you’re going to buy something anyway, I would be happy to take a discount. Sign up for the Discover® Card to get started.
