Home > Personal Finance > 14 Ways to Save at Ralph Lauren

Comments 0 Comments

Polo shirts, button downs, florals and cable knit abound at Ralph Lauren, the go-to shop for anyone who loves preppy, classic fashion. With prices on the medium-to-high-end of the spectrum, it helps to find ways to save when shopping here. Here are a few.

1. Start With Sales

It doesn’t hurt to start your shopping with the sales section of the site (or in the store). Items often switch out based on season, and you never know what treasures you might find.

2. Find Promo Codes

Do a little Google search to find promo codes for Ralph Lauren discounts. Places like Savings.com, Retail Me Not and Coupons.com often have good options.

3. Don’t Miss Out on Free Shipping

Save up to make multiple purchases at once, or ask your friends if you can make a purchase for them along with your own. Shipping is free on the site when you pay $125 or more.

4. Purchase Ralph Lauren Somewhere Other than Ralph Lauren

You’ll often find discounts on Ralph Lauren items or promos like discounts on multiple purchases at stores that sell Ralph Lauren other than Ralph Lauren itself. Check Macy’s, Belk or Nordstrom to start.

5. Shop at a Ralph Lauren Outlet

Before heading out to a regular Ralph Lauren shop, check to see if there’s an outlet near you. For example, you’re bound to find great discounts at the branch in Woodbury Common in New York or the Outlets at Castle Rock in Colorado.

6. Sign Up for the Newsletter

Scroll to the bottom right of the Ralph Lauren homepage and enter your email address to receive the newsletter. You’ll get updates on the most recent sales directly to your inbox, plus 10% off your next order when you first sign up.

7. Follow the Brand on Social Media

Be sure you’re following Ralph Lauren on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to catch details on any last-minute sales.

8. Buy Discounted Gift Cards

Check out sites like Gift Card Granny for access to gift cards at discounted prices.

9. Get a Special Discount

Ralph Lauren has been known to offer additional discounts for certain groups of people — like students and military veterans, for example — so be sure to bring your ID and give it a try.

10. Try Your Luck at eBay

With a little patience and some proper searching, you’ll likely find what you want — or at least items close to it — for a big discount on eBay.

11. Keep an Eye Out for Surveys, Sweepstakes & Promotional Offers

From time-to-time, Ralph Lauren will run surveys, sweepstakes or other promotions that offer customers access to additional discounts. Be sure to check the site frequently for these opportunities. (Signing up for the newsletter and following them on social media will also help ensure you don’t miss them!)

12. Opt In for Mobile Marketing

According to the Ralph Lauren site, you can sign up for communications about Ralph Lauren products, services and promotions through your mobile device by submitting your mobile phone number online or by texting them. Text HELP to 89448 for more info, and remember that messaging rates may apply based on your data plan.

13. Ask About a Ralph Lauren Credit Card

While it’s not available online or at every location, a few stores do offer applications to Ralph Lauren credit cards, which will come with perks that just might save you big-time if you’re a frequent Ralph Lauren shopper. Just be sure to ask about the interest rate and any fees associated with the card before signing up — and be sure your credit can handle an inquiry. (You can view two of your credit scores for free on Credit.com.)

14. Use a Rewards Credit Card

That way, you’ll at least rack up points, miles or cash back on your preppy purchases. Just be sure to pay your balance off in full so you don’t waste any of them on interest. (Not sure which cards are worth your while? No worries. We’ve got a guide to finding the best rewards credit card for you.)

Hello, Reader!

Thanks for checking out Credit.com. We hope you find the site and the journalism we produce useful. We wanted to take some time to tell you a bit about ourselves.

Our People

The Credit.com editorial team is staffed by a team of editors and reporters, each with many years of financial reporting experience. We’ve worked for places like the New York Times, American Banker, Frontline, TheStreet.com, Business Insider, ABC News, NBC News, CNBC and many others. We also employ a few freelancers and more than 50 contributors (these are typically subject matter experts from the worlds of finance, academia, politics, business and elsewhere).

Our Reporting

We take great pains to ensure that the articles, video and graphics you see on Credit.com are thoroughly reported and fact-checked. Each story is read by two separate editors, and we adhere to the highest editorial standards. We’re not perfect, however, and if you see something that you think is wrong, please email us at editorial team [at] credit [dot] com,

The Credit.com editorial team is committed to providing our readers and viewers with sound, well-reported and understandable information designed to inform and empower. We won’t tell you what to do. We will, however, do our best to explain the consequences of various actions, thereby arming you with the information you need to make decisions that are in your best interests. We also write about things relating to money and finance we think are interesting and want to share.

In addition to appearing on Credit.com, our articles are syndicated to dozens of other news sites. We have more than 100 partners, including MSN, ABC News, CBS News, Yahoo, Marketwatch, Scripps, Money Magazine and many others. This network operates similarly to the Associated Press or Reuters, except we focus almost exclusively on issues relating to personal finance. These are not advertorial or paid placements, rather we provide these articles to our partners in most cases for free. These relationships create more awareness of Credit.com in general and they result in more traffic to us as well.

Our Business Model

Credit.com’s journalism is largely supported by an e-commerce business model. Rather than rely on revenue from display ad impressions, Credit.com maintains a financial marketplace separate from its editorial pages. When someone navigates to those pages, and applies for a credit card, for example, Credit.com will get paid what is essentially a finder’s fee if that person ends up getting the card. That doesn’t mean, however, that our editorial decisions are informed by the products available in our marketplace. The editorial team chooses what to write about and how to write about it independently of the decisions and priorities of the business side of the company. In fact, we maintain a strict and important firewall between the editorial and business departments. Our mission as journalists is to serve the reader, not the advertiser. In that sense, we are no different from any other news organization that is supported by ad revenue.

Visitors to Credit.com are also able to register for a free Credit.com account, which gives them access to a tool called The Credit Report Card. This tool provides users with two free credit scores and a breakdown of the information in their Experian credit report, updated twice monthly. Again, this tool is entirely free, and we mention that frequently in our articles, because we think that it’s a good thing for users to have access to data like this. Separate from its educational value, there is also a business angle to the Credit Report Card. Registered users can be matched with products and services for which they are most likely to qualify. In other words, if you register and you find that your credit is less than stellar, Credit.com won’t recommend a high-end platinum credit card that requires an excellent credit score You’d likely get rejected, and that’s no good for you or Credit.com. You’d be no closer to getting a product you need, there’d be a wasted inquiry on your credit report, and Credit.com wouldn’t get paid. These are essentially what are commonly referred to as "targeted ads" in the world of the Internet. Despite all of this, however, even if you never apply for any product, the Credit Report Card will remain free, and none of this will impact how the editorial team reports on credit and credit scores.



Your Stories

Lastly, much of what we do is informed by our own experiences as well as the experiences of our readers. We want to tell your stories if you’re interested in sharing them. Please email us at story ideas [at] credit [dot] com with ideas or visit us on Facebook or Twitter.

Thanks for stopping by.
