5 Things To Know About Sample Sale Shopping in March

ShopDrop tips for sample sale shopping in NY

As sample sale season approaches, weekly # of sales can reach as many as 100 sample sales! That being said, you should be smart about the ones you hit up. Below we are collecting the best tips from us and our users to make sure you emerge from the season with the best finds possible!

1. Check and plan often

We update ShopDrop app with over 10 new sales every single day! There will be weeks between March & May with over 100 sales per week.
Make sure to mark the ones that look interesting to you and to work them into your busy schedule.

2. Try to weed the sales out before going

Not every sample sale is created equal. Some sample sales call themselves sample sales, when in truth most items barely reach 50% off retail. Or perhaps you have your own inner rules: don’t spend more than $50 on a top, etc… The good news is, you can find out about the kind of merchandise and prices the sale carries by following the right accounts and blogs. We definitely keep our Instagram Stories & blogs updates with reviews and previews. There are a number of accounts that do that as well. Make sure to review & request sales you are interested in so that you don’t end up wasting your time.

3. If you like the merchandise, but it seems expensive, go back on the last day of the sale

Many sample sales will drop prices or will be more willing to negotiate on the last day of the sale. We’ve encountered situations where prices were literally half off what they were on the first day at the end of the sale. If you saw items you liked but were willing to risk losing (because face it, someone might snag the goods before you) – go back on the last day! There is a good chance you’ll get a major discount.

4. Double check hours

We wish this wasn’t the case but sample sale hours are RANDOM! Some of them open only during the afternoon, and some tend to close early if they sold out of merchandise. Make sure to double check the day and hours before hitting up the sale. That will help with your time management!

5. Look out for extra deals

We negotiate with brands for specials on your behalf (i.e. early access, additional discounts, etc…) That way you can compound your savings. The partnerships we currently have going on are: early access to Sachin & Babi, an additional 15% off at Parker NY, additional 5% off at John Paul Ataker, early access to Clever Alice etc and more!

And a bonus tip from our followers:

Make sure you are dressed in a way that makes trying on clothes with no changing rooms and 1 mirror easy!
