MILLIONS of shoppers enter TJ Maxx every day and may be completely unaware of these money-saving hacks.
TJ Maxx offers amazing deals all year round.
With inflation on the rise and gas prices soaring, finding a deal can feel like a win.
We round up five easy shopping hacks to save you money.
1. Shop on Wednesdays
Wednesday is the lucky day at TJ Maxx as they typically mark down their items on this day, according to couponers.
This may vary by state and store but Wednesday mornings are usually the best time to grab great deals as markdowns happen after closing.
New stock often arrives on Tuesdays through Fridays each week, so Wednesday mornings are bound to be a goldmine for grabbing deals.
Plus, with most stores getting new shipments every three to five days, you’re bound to snag something new.
TJ Maxx is yet to confirm markdown and stock delivery schedules, but many deal experts share the same experience.
2. Check the tag colors
This hack takes a little digging – literally.
Make sure that you check each tag before you buy as there are different colors that correspond to the price.
- White Tags: Regular price
- Purple Tag: Items from The Runway collection
- Red Tag: Clearance price
- Blue Tag: Items with coordinating piece
- Yellow Tag: Final clearance price
3. Sign up for TJX Rewards Credit Card
If you are a frequent TJ Maxx shopper, this might be beneficial.
With no annual fee, their rewards cards can get you an extra 10% discount on your first purchase.
Plus, another perk is that you are able to earn points equal to 5% of the money you spend that you can later redeem for store credit.
They also send invites to some exclusive, members-only shopping events.
Credit cards must be used responsibly though, or they’ll do you more harm than good.
You should always make sure to pay off the balance in full each month or you may be hit with interest and extra charges.
4. Purchase discounted gift cards
T.J.Maxx, Marshalls and Homegoods are all owned by the same company so they all accept gift cards from those sister stores.
They can be purchased through Raise.com or CardPool.com.
It’s important to look at the discounts on all three stores’ cards and then buy the one with the biggest markdown.
With the purchase of these discounted gift cards, you can 10% to 20% off.
Shop in January and July
January and July are said to be the best months to shop at TJ Maxx.
This is when they switch out the seasons and bring in their new inventory, so scoring a deal is almost guaranteed.
All of their last season items go on clearance so it’s important to keep an eye out after the Fourth of July and Christmas, because there will be large quantities of seasonal items waiting to be picked.
