5 Tips to Saving at Madewell

top (just marked down to $14.99!) // jeans // sandals // purse // sunglasses

We can all agree I do my fair share of shopping at Madewell. So often I hear comments about the clothes being cute, but out of budget. And I totally get it. It can get pricey, but I'm hear to say there are ways to save. You just have to shop strategically. It's taken me sometime to figure out all these tips, so here are my tips to getting your Madewell and keeping your bank happy.

1. Join the Madewell Insider program

This might be obvious, but it's their loyalty program that comes with plenty of benefits. Not only do get sent emails letting you know about sales, but there are exclusive discounts for being apart of it. Even if you don't shop here that much, it's worth it alone for the birthday discount alone. They give you $25 off anything to use once in your birthday month (umm, YESS!). There are special gifts, early access to collections, and free expedited shipping.

2. Keep you eye on the sale section

Whenever I head to their website, I click straight to the sale section. You just never know when they might have added that cute top you've been stalking! They frequently do add items to the sale section and you want to be the first to scoop it up-things can go fast! The key is to check the whole section, not just the first or second page. They actually have started to mix the order of new sale pieces and older sale pieces. 

3. Never miss Sale on Sale

You want to save the most, ever? It's always going to be during sale on sale. TRUST! Oh, and this is when you just have to add to cart and check out. I've done the whole browsing in the morning, adding to basket, and come back later to find things sold out. It's not a good feeling and the chances are the prices aren't going to go much lower. Stock up now because tops can go to $15-$25, dresses $35-$50. 

4. Check Nordstrom

Good ol' Nordstrom has carries the brand and also a great backup. Not only do they price match, but increases your chances of getting something that sold out in your size. If you're a more frequent shopper with Nordstrom, then it also might be wiser to take advantage of their rewards program and rack up some points. There triple points days would be a key time to stock up.

5. Stock Nordstrom Rack

I can't believe I'm barely discovering this, but Nordstrom Rack has a great selection of Madewell. We're talking jeans, leather bags, and everything you could want from the brand. Personally, I know the selection is best online for this. Their inventory can change from day-to-day, so this one calls for stocking. They even have items that are from current collections-crazzzy good! The best part is you still can get the great customer service as Nordstrom and build up points if you have their rewards program. 

Hope these tips help you save some money! 


  1. Wait, I shop at Madewell all the time, and I had no clue they had an insider program, thanks for the intel! In love with your top!

  3. Great tips! I'm a new Madewell shopper as they have just recently added plus sizes...but I'm headed straight over there now to join the Insider's Club! Darn, my birthday was just last month!

    Thanks for linking up with the Fabulous Friday link-up!


  4. These are great tips! I love Madewell but some of their pieces are way out of my budget. I have used their insider program and definitely wait for items to go on sale. I hope all is well and happy weekend!

  5. What great bargains!
    You look fabulous rocking that striped Madewell Texture+thread Ruffle Tie-Front Top styled with the light blue vintage denim jeans. It's nice to know that Nordstrom carries Madewell - I've shopped there a number of times before.


  6. That is such a cute top! I feel like Madewell is trying to still be prestige and only offering minimal and sporadic sales, but I do still love when I can grab a favorite piece with a discount!
