There are so many reasons to give gifts – holidays, birthdays, special occasions. But, every so often you want to buy a gift “just because”. I felt like my fiancé deserved something new – he’s lost over 15 pounds in the past few months, devoting himself to a healthy lifestyle. Plus, I’ve noticed most of his wardrobe is getting a bit baggy.
I stopped by Nordstrom Rack last night on my way home from work – they had just started one of my favorite sales: “Clear the Rack“. They typically host this sale on holiday weekends, and all clearance items are an additional 25% off! As I quickly browsed through the woman’s section and shoe department with no luck, I made my way over to the men’s clearance rack.
As I quickly pushed items across the rack, I began spotting Tommy Bahama quarter-zip sweatshirts – a casual staple in my fiancés wardrobe – marked between $29.40 and $34.99. These sweatshirts retail for $98 at Nordstrom and the Tommy Bahama store, and rarely go on sale. The Nordstrom Rack price this year was $57.97 , before the clearance sticker of course. They still had a large variety of colors to choose from and I ended up purchasing one navy blue and one reversible dark grey. After the 25% discount was added, I paid $51.36 including tax for BOTH sweatshirts – that’s 75% off their regular price and a $147.71 savings!!
What could be better than that deal?! The fact that Nordstrom is giving TRIPLE POINTS this weekend when you make purchases on your Nordstrom Card – so you’ll earn gift certificates even faster!
It felt good to give a thoughtful gift to celebrate my fiancés achievement,
and it felt even better knowing I got a great deal!
‘Till Next Time: Keep finding great deals on gifts!
