Comments 0 Comments

Sophisticated and chic shoppers delight in the fancy yet practical options that abound at Michael Kors. Unless you’re loaded, though, it helps to have a couple of ways to save on hand when shopping here. Try these tactics the next time you simply must have the latest Michael Kors offering.

1. Shop Sale Items

Check out the sales section of the Michael Kors site to score up to 50% off everything from handbags and wallets to watches, clothes and shoes.

2. Sign up for the Newsletter

Catch all the Michael Kors promotions, sales and in-store events when you sign up for the newsletter. Scroll to the bottom of the homepage and look left for a sign-up option.

3. Score Coupons Online

Check sites like Groupon, RetailMeNot and Coupons.com for promo codes you can use toward Michael Kors purchases.

4. Shop for Michael Kors Items at Discount Sites

Places like Overstock.com and Nordstrom Rack often have Michael Kors items for a fraction of what they might cost at an actual Michael Kors store or online.

5. Score Coupons for Discount Sites to Use Toward Michael Kors Purchases

Save even more on your Michael Kors purchase from a discount site by signing up for newsletters from those other sites that might send out special promo codes or coupon offers you can use as well.

6. Wait for a Major Sale

Like most retailers, Michael Kors tends to have sales in conjunction with the change of season — like a spring sale, for example — so if you can stand waiting, you might be able to score major deals on those items you covet. Be sure to check the site frequently for information on upcoming sales.

7. Follow Michael Kors on Social Media

Become a follower of the brand on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with sales and promotions as well.

8. Shop at a Michael Kors Outlet

It is possible to score great deals on luxury items at a Michael Kors outlet if you’re patient and know what to look for. Generally speaking, boutique items available at an outlet store will be in the same section (usually in clearance), and a sales rep should be able to help you find what you’re looking for.

9. Sign up for a Credit Card at a Department Store That Sells Michael Kors

You can usually find Michael Kors items at department stores like Macy’s and Bloomingdales, so save even more by signing up for a credit card from your department store of choice (just be sure they offer Michael Kors products, first) and using the points you earn to make your Michael Kors purchases. Do your research first to make sure points can be used on Michael Kors products, of course, and read the fine print before signing on the dotted line for any credit card. (Check your credit score to make sure you’ll qualify as well. You can see two of your scores for free on Credit.com.)

10. Use a Rewards Credit Card

This will let you earn points, miles or cash back on your purchases. So, whether you use the card to purchase Michael Kors and then benefit from the savings later, or use it to make your daily purchases and buy your next Michael Kors bag with the cash back you’ve earned, this can help you save in all kinds of ways. Just make sure to pay your balance in full each month so interest doesn’t eclipse your rewards. Here’s some help if you’re having trouble choosing a rewards card.

11. Buy Gift Cards at a Discount

Check out sites like Gift Card Granny and Cardpool.com for Michael Kors gift cards you can buy at less than face value.

12. Get a Price Adjustment

Michael Kors will offer a one-time price adjustment on any full-price item within seven days of the date of purchase, so keep your eyes peeled for things that go on sale after you purchase them.

13. Check out eBay

Michael Kors items abound on eBay. With a little patience you might be able to score a precious product for less than you would pay for it in the store.

Certain credit cards and other financial products mentioned in this and other sponsored content on Credit.com are Partners with Credit.com. Credit.com receives compensation if our users apply for and ultimately sign up for any financial products or cards offered.

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.
