Boscov’s is distinguished from other department stores because of its “mom and pop” feel. It offers name brands like Calvin Klein, Clinique, Dooney and Bourke, and Elizabeth Arden. Aside from saving on your favorite brands, you can also receive services from Boscov’s optical center, gift registries, catering, and appliance center. With such a wide array of products and services, the Boscov’s shopper should take advantage of all perks and discounts available.
True to the old time charm of Boscov’s, the department store still offers weekly ad circulars. The great thing about the weekly ads is that you can score up to 70% off of select items, and there is always a wide range of products offered. From BBQ’s and vacuums to back-to-school promotions, you can usually find what you’re looking for in these circulars, which can be found on their website or in print via most local newspapers. This should be the first place you look for Boscov’s savings.
Before you start browsing the weekly ads on the website, make sure you’ve selected the ads for your local Boscov’s store. Each store location runs different promotions in their weekly ads. You’ll see a blue link at the top of the page that allows you to change your store location. Simply enter your zip code into the search bar to find the Boscov’s closest to you.
The WebDEALS section of the Boscov’s website is where their internet and seasonal deals can be found. This area of the site is dedicated to products that are at least 50% off (and sometimes up to 80% off). Also be sure to check out the Hot Buys Shop section of the WebDEALS page – where you’ll find top-rated customer picks, and “hot buys” organized by product category.
If you stock up on the WebDEALS or Hot Buys, your order qualifies for free shipping if you spend over $99. However, this special doesn’t apply to heavy and home delivery items due to weight and special handling. Be sure to check the home delivery guidelines, and calculate this cost before you decide to make your purchase.
Boscov’s does a summer handbag sale every year, and bags of all styles are included. For example, Boscov’s 2014 summer handbag sale offered savings of 75% on select bags. Handbags originally priced at $40 were reduced to $9.99, and they also offered reduced shipping and promo codes for purchases over $100.
Cardpool offers Boscov’s gift cards at 12% off. You can buy both physical and electronic gift cards with varying balances. In addition, you get $5 if you refer a friend to Cardpool, free USPS shipping on physical cards, and a 100-day purchase guarantee. The site also offers a new feature, where you can input the card balance you wish to purchase, and the site will search for cards near or under this balance. This is the perfect option if you already plan to make a purchase at Boscov’s. You’ll definitely get more bang for your buck by taking this route.
Boscov’s also does gift card promotions throughout the year. Be sure to check out the Giant Gas Deal, where Giant Food Stores offer 5x gas points on Boscov’s gift cards. For example, when you buy a $100 Boscov’s gift card, you’ll get 50 cents off gas (up to 25 gallons) – for a total savings of $12.50. Check your local Boscov’s and Giant Food Stores to find out when similar deals will run in your area. It may be worth the wait.
Because Boscov’s does so many weekly ads and promotions, promo codes for purchases are somewhat difficult to come by. However, Boscov’s offers promo codes for gifts with purchase on many of their beauty and accessory brands. For example, one of the most recent deals included a free 7-piece gift with purchase on $35+ in Lancome products. If you plan to buy beauty products or women’s accessories, make sure to check for promo codes first.
Boscov’s does offer printable coupons for in-store use only. The printable coupons are usually department-specific, but become more generous around the holidays. Normally, printable coupons will specify certain brands (20% off all Jockey items), or departments (50% off in the mattress department) – whereas waiting until late November or early December may help you score 40% off of your entire purchase with a printable coupon.
If you’re a regular at Boscov’s, or even if you have your eye on a specific item, it’s worth signing up for their email alerts. You’ll receive newsletters on sales and specials (both online and in store). In addition, you can select areas of interest, so that Boscov’s doesn’t send you promotions that aren’t relevant to your interests.
If you or your spouse has a military ID, you may want to make an in-store purchase, as opposed to an online purchase. Boscov’s offers a military discount between 15-20% with valid military ID on in-store purchases only.
When you open a wedding registry at Boscov’s they give you 15% off a couple’s shopping pass and 10% off rebate on all gifts purchased with the Boscov’s Registry Rewards Certificate. You’ll also get 10% off most remaining gifts on your registry with the Registry Wrap-Up Discount, and free gifts just for signing up.
Enjoy free gift-wrapping at Boscov’s whenever you purchase a gift on someone’s registry.
Joining the Boscov’s Reward Club allows you to earn points when you use your Boscov’s credit card. The Reward Club is set up with different levels, with each level offering different reward points and reward values. You can redeem your points for Boscov’s gift card certificates that work the same as a Boscov’s gift card.
Boscov’s has seasonal items on its website year-round, but your savings will depend on when you buy. Harvest, Halloween, and Holiday shopping under the seasonal tab on the Boscov’s website is worth checking out during the off-season. Check out holiday decorations (and even costumes) at major discounts before the holidays approach.
