I don’t know about you, but I have a slight obsession with kate spade new york. I have a few bags in my collection, and as part of last month’s clothing budget, I treated myself to a watch that I wear every day. I love my collection thus far—it’s chic and timeless, well made and high quality. But I have NEVER paid full price for any of my kate spade pieces. No way! There are so many ways to find a great deal without breaking the bank, so I’ve compiled a list on how to save on kate spade! (Please note, some of these contain my affiliate link. If you click or create an account, I will get a small referral bonus. This is not a sponsored post—I just love kate spade and wanted to share my sources with you!)
Hautelook is an online retailer that was purchased by Nordstrom. They offer members limited-time sales on clothing, accessories, kids’ items, home decor, and beauty products. You have to sign up (for free) to be a member to get access to their deals. I’ve seen great sales on brands like Nine West, Philosophy and you guessed it- Kate Spade. I haven’t used Hautelook yet, but the prices are incredible!
Gilt provides instant insider access to today’s top designer labels, at up to 60% off retail on items for women, men, kids and home as well as exclusive local services and experiences. Sales are first come, first served since it’s an “online flash sale”. I just snagged this gorgeous crossbody for $89, regularly $178! And if you use my link to sign up, you will get $25 off your first purchase (and I get $25 too!) Win win!
eBay is a great way to find deals on kate spade items. I’ve gotten a couple of bags this way, as well as my watch! Just be sure you look closely at the photos, consider purchasing from sellers with an outstanding feedback history, read descriptions thoroughly and ask the seller a question if you are still unsure. You can always start at the kate spade website to see the name of the bag you want, then type it in at eBay. (That way, you can also compare photos of the bag to ensure the finishes, lining, etc. are the same to be sure you are getting a 100% authentic one!)
4) kate spade surprise sales & outlets
Every so often, kate spade offers “surprise sales” on their website. The deals are reasonable and all you have to do to get access to the sale is enter your email and zip code. I recommend you sign up on their website to receive email and you will get notice of the sales too! And did you know that kate spade has outlets? Yep! I’ve been to one just once and found the prices to be a little on the high end, but their clearance sections, combined with sales would definitely help bring the price down to a nice bargain! To find one in your area, search here and select “outlet” on the left-hand side.
I use ebates all the time when I am shopping online to earn cash back on my purchases. I wrote a blog post about it here. It’s free to join and all you have to do when you are shopping online is go to ebates.com, select your store, shop away and you’ll earn a percentage of cash back at that retailer in the form of a quarterly check! (And right now, they are offering new members a $10 gift card to Macy’s, Walmart, Target or Kohl’s just to sign up!) Right now, they offer 5% cash back at Gilt, up to 1% at eBay, and 3.5% at kate spade, among hundreds of others!
