Claire's Couponing & Savings Guide
Claire’s has a wide array of accessories and products for girls of all ages. They’re known for low prices and great deals, but there are a few ways to maximize your savings the next time you shop at Claire’s – simply follow these tips and tricks.
Start in the Sale Section
Claire’s makes it easy to shop for deals by having a separate sale section on the website. Once you’re there, shop by category, color, price, age group, or brand. On average, these items are usually more than 50% off the regular price, and most of the items are under $10. The sale section has hundreds of items, ranging from jewelry to backpacks. Starting in the sale section will help you get the most bang for your buck, but don’t forget to check the other deal sections. Remember that Claire's promo codes and Claire's coupons typically don’t apply to sale items, but shopping in this section still allows you to stock up on accessories at deeply discounted prices.
Spend at least $35 and you'll get free shipping.
Browse the $5 and Under Section
Claire’s has an entire section on their website dedicated to items that are $5 or less. You’ll find jewelry, socks, makeup, and even gag gifts in this section – and the best part is that it’s stocked with hundreds of items. Similar to the sale section, you can shop by color, price, age group, or brand. This is the perfect place to shop when you need to meet the free shipping requirement. It’s also great for holiday shopping for gift bags and stocking stuffers. Because these items are not technically sale items, most of them qualify for Claire's promo codes and other types of discounts.
Get the Student Discount
Claire’s offers a 15% student discount on the website – all you have to do is register your email. The only catch is that the student discount can’t be combined with any other Claire's coupon, discount, sale or promotion. The student discount is also not applicable to gift certificates, clearance items, or ear piercing. This means that if you plan to use your student discount, it’s a good idea to first consider other available coupons. There may be a printable coupon or a promo code that will get your total lower than using the student discount. Another perk of signing up for the student discount is that you’ll receive special offers only for students.
Shop the Deal of the Week
Check the deal of the week section to see featured items and additional promotions. To the right of the screen, you’ll see bonus deals that often complement the featured item. You’ll also have the opportunity to take advantage of deals that have already passed under the “missed deals” section. Here you’ll find iPhone covers for only $4 to $6, and lots of other opportunities to save. Simply click the “view product” hyperlink to take advantage of any of the missed deals.
Register Your Email
Sign up on the Claire’s website to receive news about the latest fashion trends, new arrivals, and most importantly – exclusive VIP offers. Registering your email also makes checkout easier online, and you’ll also get exclusive birthday offers when you provide your birth date. Knowing about upcoming sales events makes it easier for you to choose from a wide selection of items on sale. Claire’s will also often send a promo code for a certain percentage off your entire next order upon email registration – so make sure you register before you make an online purchase.
Take Advantage of Free Ear Piercing
Ear piercing is free every day at Claire’s when you purchase the ear piercing starter kit. The starter kit includes your earrings, ear care solution, and a special offer for your next visit. Claire’s has six starter kit options, including: Stainless steel, 14k white gold birthstone, 14k gold, 24k gold plated, Claire’s exclusive, and Minions. To take advantage of free ear piercing, simply fill out the registry forms and sign them while you’re in the store. Claire’s also provides aftercare videos and detailed care instructions. Don’t forget to search for printable coupons for Claire’s ear piercing before you head to your local Claire’s store.
Search for Claire's Promo Codes and Printable Coupons
If you do a quick search, you may be able to find active Claire's promo codes. Claire’s often has promo codes for 20% off your entire purchase or free shipping with gift card purchases. If you get a promo code for registering your email or you qualify for the student discount, be sure to assess your purchase before choosing which discount to apply. For example, sale items usually don’t qualify for additional discounts. However, if most of your items are from the sale section and you plan to use a gift card upon checkout, you may still be able to use the free shipping promo since you’re making a gift card purchase. Do the math to make sure you’re using the promo code that saves you the most cash. If you plan to make an in-store purchase, make sure you do a search for printable coupons before going in.

Buy Discounted Gift Cards
Raise.com has discounted Claire’s gift cards for almost 40% off. This means that you pay only $61.90 for a gift card with $100 on it. Raise stocks e-gift cards that you can use for online purchases only, but the great thing about them is they don’t expire. To get maximum savings, purchase a discounted gift card, and then start in the sale and under $5 sections. Once your items are in your cart, use a promo code (which will apply to the under $5 section items), and make sure you’re spending $35 so you get the free shipping.
Enter the Sweepstakes
Claire’s usually has exciting sweepstakes. Their most current sweepstakes was the Katy Perry Ultimate Fly-Away sweepstakes. Participants entered for a chance to meet Katy Perry in Costa Rica. The prize included round-trip airfare, three nights of hotel accommodations, a $200 Claire’s shopping spree, and a curated Prismatic prize package hand-picked by Katy Perry. The great thing about Claire’s sweepstakes is that they don’t require a purchase to enter, and they usually provide a short online form for quick and easy entry.
