Here are some tips and know-hows when it comes to shopping at Boscov’s:
Use Weekly Ads
The store is holding on to that sentimental old style and is still offering weekly ads. If you take your time to look over the weekly offers, you can save up to 70% on some items. The list of products is always long. From grills to vacuum cleaners and from back-to-school deals to shoes you are guaranteed to find something you need and save. The weekly ads are available in print and online.
Tip: Find ads from the store before you look for online deals, because each store runs individual sales and coupons. If you are shopping online, the blue link on top will allow you to choose the location that works best for you.
Summer Handbag Sale
The summer handbag sale happens every year with bags of every style and color. Some bags can be discounted by 75%! That is something you don’t want to miss. In addition to that, you will likely score reduced shipping and coupon codes for purchases of $100+.
This is the section for internet and seasonal deals. All products here are at least 50% off. Not enough? Sometimes you can find stuff that is 80% off! Hot Buys Shop section is where you can find top-rated products and “hot-buys” all categorized by product categories. Clearance section is another treasure trove with some items for as low as $5.
Tip: in addition to webDEALS and Hot Buys, Boscov’s has WebBusters section, where you will find more discounted items. You can find everything under the sun in this section and very affordably.
Once you fill up your cart with great deals and regular-priced items, you will qualify for free shipping if you have at least $99 worth of stuff. Heavy items and appliances don’t qualify for free shipping. Make sure you calculate the price of the delivery before purchasing something heavy to determine if you are still getting a good deal.
Tip: You can sometimes find a special deal on shipping for a limited time, when all you have to have is $49 before tax to get complimentary shipping.
Discounted Gift Cards
Check out Cardpool, where you can sometimes get 12% off Boscov’s gift cards. You can buy electronic or physical card with a balance of your choice. If you will recommend Cardpool to a friend, you will get $5. The cards ship free and include 100-day purchase guarantee. You can input whatever amount you want and the site will find cards with near or under that balance. This is the best route to take if you already have plans to purchase from Boscov’s.
Tip: Boscov’s organizes a few gift card deals per year. Check out the Huge Gas Deal – Giant Food Stores offer 5x gas points when you use Boscov’s gift card. This is how it works: if you buy a $100 Boscov’s gift cards, you will get $0.50 off per gallon for 25 gallons, a saving of $12.50. Find out when such deals are available in your area and wait for it.
If you have a wedding coming up, open registry at Boscov’s and get 15% off couple’s shopping pass. You will also get 10% off rebate on all the registry items purchased with the Boscov’s Registry Rewards Certificate. If you have any gifts remaining, you can buy them with 10% ending discount. You will receive some free gifts just for opening the registry, so why not?
Tip: If you purchase something from somebody’s registry, gift wrapping at the store is free.
Boscov’s has many weekly ads, so they are not too big on coupon codes, but you can find them on free gifts with purchase quite often. For example, you can receive a few free samples with a qualifying purchase of some brands like Lancome. Always check for coupons when purchasing beauty products and accessories.
Tip: Boscov’s offers printable coupons quite often, especially around holidays. They become less department-specific at that time too. Some discounts can go as high as 40% off your purchase in November and December.
It’s always a good practice to sign up for email lists at any store that you shop regularly. Boscov’s sends newsletters about upcoming sales and promotions for online and in-stores. You can specify what you are interested in to avoid getting flooded with emails that you don’t need.
Active military members and their family should shop in-store and receive 15%-20% discounts for in-store purchases only. You have to have a valid Military ID with you to be eligible.
Get Boscov’s credit card and become a member of Boscov’s Reward Club. You will be earning points while shopping and they will eventually go towards gift card certificates. As soon as you earn 500 points, you can start redeeming them. Your gift certificates will arrive every February.
500 points = $5 gift card certificate

The Diamond Club member will receive 4 points for each dollar. Make sure you read the rules and understand how the levels work and what level you are eligible for.
