Semi-Annual & Anniversary Sales Galore (Promo Codes in Contents!!)

Recently, Athleta (among most other stores) announced their much anticipated Semi-Annual Sale!  Athleta has an amzing product guarantee – you could literally wear an item, wash it, and they’ll still take it back if it doesn’t fit right, if it has a defect, or if you can’t let go of your buyers remorse (I wouldn’t recommend admitting the latter to the sales person processing the return…)

I had been eyeing a few items throughout the season, but I knew I should be patient: tick, tock, tick tock. Sure enough, today (a meager one week after the sale was announced) I got the e-mail announcing an additional 20% off sale items in store and online.  Definitely worth the wait.  Gap recently sent me a $10 reward certificate too, which can be used at any of their brands including Athleta – perfect timing.

I feel in love with a black&white striped rash-guard with matching baithing suit bottoms and a pair of matching swim tights (leggings made for water sports – with sun protection!) The outcome: A three-piece matching outfit originally totaling $187+Tax.  Free shipping. Sale Prices. Additional 20% off. $10 Rewards Certificate.  All brought me down to $65+Tax = 65% off!

I’ve also had my eye on a few items at Lands’ End: their swim tee’s in particular.  Honestly, they are perfect for beach days, paddle boarding & kayaking – they keep you warm when it gets chilly, they keep you cool when you’re sweating, and they prevent sunburn with built in UPF 50 protection!  The shirts went on sale a few weeks ago but I just couldn’t get myself to buy them at JUST the sale price.  Again, the waiting game begun: tick, tock, tick, tock.  What arrived in my inbox today? A good ol’ coupon for 20% off my entire purchase, PLUS free shipping.  The coupon is online-only, because it is celebrating their 20th “cyber” anniversary – but there is actually an advantage to ordering online: more color and size selection as well as extended sizes (I love the extended sizes to get the perfect fit.  Even though I borderline the petite section for some items, I end up ordering the shirts in the “tall” version, so that they are longer in length!)

Outcome? A $39 pink swim tee for $15.99 (60% off!) and a $35 navy&pink swim tee for $9.59 (73% off!).  After adding the dreaded tax, I still only paid $27.20 for BOTH.  As if that’s not enough, for an added bonus, I made my purchase through the Discover Card website, and earned an additional 10% cashback bonus that can go toward my billing statement!

  1. I just went to Athleta for the first time yesterday… no additional 20% off their sale stuff, but I had $50 in gap rewards so I was able to purchase leggings and 2 sports bras for a little over $60!

  2. That’s too bad, unfortunately that additionally 20% was only good until July 20th, but that’s not to say they wont reinstate the offer again soon. Keep a watchful eye or sign up for their e-mails to get the most up to date sales and promotions! If you keep your receipt and the item goes on sale further, you may be entitled to a credit as well, depending on the purchase date.

  3. Just following up from yesterday – I just received an Athleta E-mail – There is an additional 20% off IN STORE ONLY today through Sunday (July 31st – August 2nd). Since you just bought the items within the last two days, I’m sure you can get a store credit if you call or go into the store with your receipt. If they refuse the credit, you can return the items and then repurchase them right away – 20% is worth it.
