I could live in an Anthropologie. Seriously – the clothes, the home decor, the gorgeous patterns…could it be more inviting?? I’m obsessed with the mood lighting, the dreamy candle smells and overall homey feel throughout the store. It feels so inspiring every time I walk in.
One thing I’m not a huge fan of is how crazy expensive everything is. Items have been priced as high as $9,000 (yikes) and for those of us that don’t have a disposable income it can get a little pricey. That’s why I’ve rounded up a few of the best Anthropologie shopping hacks to help you save the maximum $$ on your next Anthro trip!
1.) Get Complimentary Wardrobe and Home Styling
Did you know that Anthropologie offers styling advice for both your wardrobe and home free of charge? UMM sign me up! Customers can make appointments by visiting online or calling their local store.
2.) Shop the Sales
This might seem like a no-brainer, but seriously Anthropologie has some amazing sales and often marks down products that are out-of-season or not selling well down heavily. The sale section is frequently an additional 20-25% off and sometimes there are bigger discounts such as 40% store-wide. This is the perfect time to grab all of those pieces that you’ve been eyeing. In particular, I find the sales section to be a great place to score discounted hooks, knobs, kitchenware, accessories, beauty items, small home decor pieces and gifts.

3.) Opt For Store Pick-up to Save on Shipping Costs
Store pick-up is one of the best shopping hacks ever. No shipping costs and an excuse to stop in Anthropologie to browse? Yes Please. Shopping online and picking-up can also help you score specific items that are out of stock. A few months ago, I found this gorgeous hook in the sales section, but couldn’t find a second matching one. I ended up finding it online instead and was able to pick it up at another nearby store!
4.) Use Anthropologie’s Price Adjustment Policy to Your Advantage
As per the Anthropologie FAQ section on site “If you have purchased items that are now on sale, we will gladly offer you a one-time price adjustment if you contact us within 14 days of the original date of shipment or in-store purchase.”
5. Buy Discounted Gift Cards
Save even more money by purchasing a discounted Anthropologie gift card from an authorized gift card reseller. Some popular site to do so include Raise.com, CardPool.com and GiftCardRescue.com. Gift cards are often discounted up to 35%!
6. Get Familiar with the Sales Cycles
Anthropologie often releases new products on the first of every month. Typically, you can find that the website will put items on sale at midnight on Sunday.
7. Use Thinkover to Get Alerted When Items Go on Sale
Okay, seriously – best. hack. ever. Thinkover is one of my favorite websites right now and not just for Anthropologie, but for any store. Think of it like Pinterest for online shopping. Drag your favorite items from the site to the lower half of your screen and they will be saved for later. Once an item goes on sale you’ll get an alert! No more bookmarking and constantly checking for mark downs. I’ve saved soooo much money with this site.
8. Combine High Cash Back Rates With Big Sales to Get the Best Deals
Cash back is such an amazing secret weapon. If you want the best rates, sign up for TopCashback. You’ll get 4% right now as compared with Ebates or other sites 1%. Stack that with coupons + heavy sales and you will feel like Anthropologie is paying you to shop.
