If you need or want just about any type of item sold at J.C. Penney Co. department stores, this weekend is the time to buy it.
As part of the major retailer’s Anniversary Sale, it’s offering so many great deals that it may as well be a Black Friday sale.
Here are our three favorite:
1. Coupon giveaway
On Saturday only, stores will hand out free coupons worth $10 off a $10 purchase, $20 off a $20 purchase and $50 off a $50 purchase. That means you could walk out with as much as $50 in items without paying a dime for them. So, these coupons are practically as good as cash.
According to the fine print, this giveaway is limited to one coupon per adult, and the coupons are good only in stores and only on Saturday. J.C. Penney has 865 stores across the U.S.
Here’s the coupon distribution:
- 96 in 100 coupons are for $10 off
- 3 in 100 coupons are for $20 off
- 1 in 100 coupons is for $50 off
Don’t worry: Even if you only get a $10 off coupon, you can combine it with the following discounts for a boatload of savings.
2. Extra 15% or 20% off
Now through Sunday, you stand to save an extra 15% or 20% on many items — in stores or online.
To redeem the offer in stores, you can show a bar code to an associate. The bar code is available on J.C. Penney’s coupons webpage. To redeem the offer online, enter code BIGDEAL3 at checkout.
The 20% discount applies to select:
- Fine jewelry
The 15% discount applies to select:
- Fitness equipment and accessories
- Custom blinds and shades
- Salon products
See the fine print on this offer for a list of brands that are excluded.
3. Buy one, get one deals
J.C. Penney is currently offering its “Buy 1 Get 1 for 1 Cent” deal in multiple departments. That means if you buy one eligible item at the regular price, you can get another for a penny.
Eligible items include certain:
Just note these deals are available “while supplies last,” according to the fine print.
Boost your savings
You can also boost your savings by earning cash back on your purchases.
Shop through a cash-back portal like Ebates.com to earn cash back on online purchases. Ebates was offering 6% cash back on JCPenney.com purchases as of Thursday. And whether you shop in stores or online, pay with a cash-back credit card if that’s a responsible option for you.
