[DISCLOSURE: Cards from our partners are mentioned below.]

Whether you’re hoping to spruce up your bedroom, your living room rug is looking pretty shabby or a new Papasan is calling your name, Pier 1 will likely have the home item you’re looking for. If you want to save a little cash while you shop, try some of these tactics to get the same great Pier 1 products for less.

1. Sign up for Newsletter Emails

Visit the Pier 1 homepage and sign up to receive Pier 1 emails. You’ll immediately receive an email with a 10% off your next purchase code. Plus, during holidays and special sales, these emails can have deals or free shipping codes.

2. Sign up for Mailers

You can sign up to receive the Pier 1 mailer for advance notice on all the latest savings, offers and special events on the Pier 1 website.

3. Visit the Clearance & Sale Section

Start your Pier 1 search in the clearance and sale section. Items here are marked down drastically, and you never know what you might find.

4. Open a Pier 1 Rewards Card

Customers who open a Pearl Pier 1 Reward card will receive 15% off their first purchase when they use the card, as well as a birthday bonus of 10% off, invitations to store events and an extended return time on purchases. Remember to pay this card off in full – the APR is a variable 27.74% and that means those interest charges can add up fast.

5. Upgrade to the Cobalt Card

If you’d prefer more rewards, the Cobalt Pier 1 Reward card provides all the same benefits as the Pearl card, except the first-use bonus is 20%, plus users earn one point for $1 in new purchases and receive a $10 Reward Certificate for every 200 Rewards points earned. Adhere to the same payoff rules as above to avoid astronomical interest fees.

6. Go Platinum

The third and final tier of credit card offered by Pier 1 is the Platinum Pier1 Reward card. Apply for this card to get all the perks of the Cobalt version, plus an extra 10% off qualifying purchases on the first Tuesday of each month. Remember, opening a store credit card impacts your credit. Even though store credit cards are often seen as easier to get approved for, it is still a good idea to check your credit before applying. (You can check two credit scores for free at Credit.com.)

7. Check for Additional Seasonal Perks

Once you’re a Pier 1 Rewards member, check the Reward card perks page on the site for any additional offers. For example, during the month of February, card members earned three times the points on Wednesdays, among other things.

8. Shop Seasonal Sales

If you can, hold off on purchasing certain items until after a particular season ends. After each season, Pier 1 is bound to have a blowout sale to make room for new inventory. For example, their past Spring Makeover sale included 20% off select categories of spring goods. After Christmas is a good time to check the site for sales as well.

9. Try Coupon Hunting

Before making any purchases, be sure to always check out sites like Groupon, Coupons.com and RetailMeNot for promo or coupon codes you may have missed.

10. Follow Them on Social Media

Follow the store on Facebook and Twitter for really current information on the latest deals and discounts. This is also important for catching special flash sales.

11. Get Some Gift Cards

Sites like Gift Card Granny and Raise allow you to purchase Pier 1 gift cards at discounted rates.

12. Install Honey on Your Computer

Never miss another promo code when you install coupon aggregator Honey on your computer. The browser extension searches the web for you at checkout and applies all applicable coupons so you don’t have to waste time searching. (Before downloading, see how Honey and other money saving Chrome extensions add up.)

13. Wait for Free Shipping

If you can’t get to the store and you can wait a bit for your goods to arrive, it’s worth taking advantage of free shipping deals when they crop up. Check the site frequently and try placing group orders with friends if you need to order a certain amount in order to qualify.

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.

Our Owners

Credit.com is owned by Progrexion Holdings Inc. which is the owner and administrator of a number of business related to credit and credit repair, including CreditRepair.com, and eFolks. In addition, Progrexion also provides services to Lexington Law Firm as a third party provider. Despite being owned by Progrexion, it is not the role of the Credit.com editorial team to advocate the use of the company’s other services. In articles, reporters may mention credit repair as an option, for example, but we’ll also be sure to note the various alternatives to that service. Furthermore, you may see ads for credit repair services on Credit.com, but the editorial team isn’t responsible for the creation or implementation of those ads, anymore than reporters for the New York Times or Washington Post are responsible for the ads on their sites.

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.
