Shopping Secrets: Saving Big on Kids’ Jackets and Coats

Shopping Secrets: Kids' Jackets and Coats | BabyCheapskate.comWant to know when and where to find the best deals on kids’ jackets, parkas and coats? Read on.

Full-priced jackets for kids will run you $20 and up (and up, and up, and up…), but believe it or not, you can find parkas for $5 or less if you time it just right. When it comes to outerwear shopping, I like to make sure I’m getting a discount of at least 40% off the regular price. That’s pretty easy to do if you shop second hand or wait until late November to buy from the stores.

While Black Friday and post-holiday clearance sales offer the deepest discounts, you may need a coat now. If you can’t wait until Black Friday or Winter Clearance, try these tips:

  • Seasonal consignment sales have started nationwide. Check them for huge savings on second hand kids’ jackets and coats and other cool weather clothing. You can find sales at sites like ConsignmentMommies.com.
  • Prices in store can be surprisingly good in late September. The reason? It’s not cold yet and the demand isn’t high. Try your luck at local stores: Walmart is a particularly inexpensive place to find them. Other places to try include Target, JCPenney and Kmart. You may find outerwear online before you find it in stores, as online shoppers are just as likely to live in Maine or Vermont as they are some place where it’s warm through Thanksgiving.
  • If you’re looking for name brands, try Sierra Trading Post. They offer big discounts and usually have a coupon code to make the deals even better (just Google “Sierra Trading Post coupon” to find them). This is a great place to find snowsuits, hats, gloves and ski pants as well.

Black Friday (November 28 this year) also brings some of the hottest deals on kids’ outerwear that you’ll see until February or so. Old Navy had Performance Fleece hoodies for as little as $5 on Black Friday, for example. Keep an eye on BF sale announcements to plan your day. Expect the selection to be fairly depleted by mid-morning.

Deep discounts will continue throughout the holiday shopping season. Last year on December 12 you could score kids’ winter coats at Crazy8.com for up to 74% off, for example.

Expect the best deals on kids’ winter wear just after the holidays and continuing through March. This is a great time to stock up for the following season. Several big post-holiday sales actually started a few days before Christmas last year. Here are a couple of highlights:

  • The Children’s Place marked its puffer jackets down just after Christmas to $13.99 less coupon code.
  • Lands End put their coats on clearance a couple of days after Christma last year. They were 50% off or more.
  • REI’s January sale offers opportunities for savings on higher-end brands.
  • The Children’s Place has been known to mark down their fleece jackets to $2.99 in late February.
  • Winter clearance sales at consignment stores should start in February. Call your local store to find out exact dates.

Tip: Keep track of what you buy so you don’t end up buying double. I box up my winter clearance bargains, label the outside of the box with what’s in there, and pop the box in the top of my son’s closet. As fall approaches, I’ll take it down and go through it to remind myself of what I have before I buy anything else.

What are your best tips for buying kids’ winter outerwear?
