I recently found out about ShopStyle.com‘s sale alerts feature – you choose the stores that you like and they’ll email you whenever they have a sale and they’ll also tell you what items are on sale. So of course I signed up and chose several stores, including West Elm.
Yesterday, I got one of these emails from ShopStyle and there was a cool mirror on sale:
I called the local store and asked if they had it in stock. They did! But it wasn’t on sale… I told them that it was on sale online. They said they would honor the sale price. We rushed right over and they were also having a 20% off sale on all sale items! We picked up a few other tiny accessories and I thought the 20% wouldn’t apply to the mirror because technically it wasn’t on sale in the store. But it did! So we got the mirror for around 60 dollars. Niceeee.
This wasn’t the first time – when we bought our spiffy trash can, I looked at the price in the store and knew it was cheaper online. I found it online on my phone and showed it to the store worker and she honored the price. Always check the price online!
A secret for you – these cool pillows are on sale online and sold out, but aren’t on sale in stores (at least, at mine). If you need new sofa pillows, consider these:
