Why I Always Open Department Store “Junk” Mail

A couple of days ago I got our mail and among other things, I noticed a flyer from Bon-ton.  Now typically I’m not one to waste my time on junk mail but I’ve learned that some junk mail is worth opening and this was one of those times.  I opened it up and there was a coupon for $25 off a $25 or more purchase of kid’s apparel and accessories!  You know what that means, right?  I basically can use that coupon to get free clothes or at least very nearly free!  It’s even good on sale priced items.  My son is pretty hard on his jeans and is down to just a few pairs so this will be a great way for me to get him some more very inexpensively.

I’ve gotten into the habit of always opening and at least glancing through any flyers or mail from stores because I’ve learned that semi-frequently I’ll find little gems like this.  It only takes a couple of minutes but it can save me pretty big.

A few of the stores that I’ve gotten “free” dollar value coupons or coupons for free products from in the past:
* Kohl’s
* JCPenney
* Hallmark Gold Crown Stores
* Bath & Body Works
* Kmart/Sears

Want to get coupons like this too?  The best way I know to do it is simply to sign up for the stores mailing list on their website.

Do you get coupons like this in the mail?  What stores have been good to you?
