Deals, Discounts, and Thrifts: Saving Money Online Shopping

Someone maybe once said, “There are those that shop and then those that shop a lot.”

Regardless of the category you belong to, buying clothes doesn’t have to break the bank!

We have some tips to help you save money while you upgrade your closet.

Thrift Stores

Before we get into our tips for saving money online shopping, we want to remind you of a predecessor—thrifting.

Have time to spare and a little extra cash? Head over to your local thrift store to kill time and find low-cost clothing.

Gone are the days of fluorescent-lit, stuffy thrift stores filled with ill-fitting and drab clothing.

The chances of finding fun, unique, and trendy pieces have made thrift stores popular destinations for those looking to develop their style.

Thrift stores can carry all sorts of brands from luxury like Chanel to everyday like Levi’s.

Online Thrift Stores

We previously wrote about the benefits of selling clothes online using platforms such as Poshmark, Depop, eBay, and thredUP.

As luck would have it, these websites are also great for buying fashionable, gently worn, low-cost clothing.


Poshmark has over 80 million members across the U.S., Canada, and Australia, with over 200 million items for sale.

You can find sellers for women’s, men’s, and children’s pieces in popular brands like Lululemon, Nike, UGG, Gucci, and more!

Buying luxury items on Poshmark is also worry-free! Poshmark HQ authenticates items valued at more than $500. Plus, buyers are protected if they don’t receive their shipment due to theft or loss.


Are you more interested in trendier or unique items? Then head over to Depop!

The site carries distinct women’s and men’s styles—vintage, streetwear, Y2K, and more.

Close to 140,000 listings are added each day, with over 30 million available items for sale. You can find hundreds of brands on the website, including H&M, Abercrombie & Fitch, Gianni Bini, and more.


For years, eBay asserted itself as the go-to online thrift store. That hasn’t changed! The site is great for finding everything from affordable clothing to luxury accessories and fine jewelry.

You can buy on the website by bidding or skip the bidding process by using their Buy It Now option.

If you’re looking to buy used luxury items, eBay offers buyer protections like luxury goods authentication and other policies.

You can also find brand-new clothing items on the website for up to 50% discount.


Like previously mentioned platforms, thredUP offers gently used clothing at a discount.

From Gap to Gucci, you can find thousands of women, kids, juniors, maternity, and plus-sized brands on the website for up to 90% off.

Plus, tredUP’s rewards program allows you to earn points for every purchase and enjoy exclusive benefits like free shipping, waived fees, credit, and more!

Store Rewards

Maybe previously owned clothing isn’t your style. That’s okay!

Look into joining your favorite clothing store’s points-based loyalty program instead. Many retail brands—Urban Outfitters, DSW, H&M, and plenty more—offer these free programs with member benefits, such as exclusive sales, free shipping, and other VIP experiences.

The best part? You collect points as you purchase, and points can accumulate into free items or heavily discounted pieces.

Buying new clothes can be a fun and relatively low-cost experience if you know where to look!
