JCPenney has been a household name since the early 1900s. With more than 800 locations across the United States, the department store provides consumers with clothing, appliances, jewelry, electronics, housewares and more.
They are the perfect go-to for anything you may need. I consistently find myself browsing through their clearance, shopping for things I don’t need. For example, there was this one day where I probably purchased around 10 dresses. The average price was around $10 each. Cocktail dresses (beads, sequins, the whole nine yards), work attire dresses, casual sundresses and more. Necessary? Absolutely not. But I will say those dresses have come in handy.
Do you find yourself always spending too much at JCP? Because let me tell you, staying within your budget can be tough. Fortunately I’ve found some helpful money-saving tips and tricks to reference before going on a shopping trip.
In doing my research I also found some FAQs that I found myself wondering on a regular basis; for example, ‘can you use a JCPenney gift card at Sephora,’ ‘how many gift cards can I use towards an online purchase’ and ‘how to check my gift card balance.’
They have an entire page dedicated to their discount and coupon codes. Can they make it any easier?! Thank you, JCP! For example, they’re currently offering the following promotions:
As an added bonus, their page provides options for customers shopping both in-store or online.
Are you asking yourself, “What is a discounted gift card?!” Let’s set the scene: Aunt Sally gets you a gift card for a store that just isn’t your style (and frankly, you just don’t like). So, what do you do? Do you: 1. Throw it in the big ‘ol junk drawer and forget about it, 2. Re-gift it to someone else who probably won’t use it, or 3. Sell it to a gift card reseller. The choice is yours, but it’s important to know that there is a secondary gift card market where people sell their unwanted gift cards for cash.
Companies, such as Cardpool, buy gift cards and then sell those gift cards to consumers at a discounted price. Point is, you may want to consider purchasing a JCPenney discount gift card. Savings can vary between 10% to 20% and is based on supply and demand.
I’ll admit that online coupon sites can be a real let down. You see THE perfect promotion or coupon but somehow, someway, it magically does not apply to your purchase although it worked for 729 other people. Huh?! Tell me how that makes sense.
Needless to say, what’s the harm in checking? Trustworthy coupon sites such as RetailMeNot and The Krazy Coupon Lady typically provide legitimate promotions. And remember to check out the Honey Chrome extension! I can’t begin to tell you how much I’ve saved by using these types of sites. Don’t let discounts go to waste.
Always be on the lookout for the highly sought-after $10 for $10 coupon. Even if you don’t need something, use it! This is a great opportunity to stock up on your socks, undies, hair ties, whatever!
What’s the lowdown on the two stores? We’ve got answers.
Yes; the two partnered in 2006. There are currently more than 600 Sephora stores in JCPenney locations. Clothing and makeup in one spot?! THANK YOU!
No; you cannot use a JCPenney coupon at Sephora.
Yes; you can use a JCPenney gift card for your Sephora purchase (woohoo), but only at Sephora stores located inside of a JCPenney.
It’s important to remember that you are unable to use JCP gift cards at a standalone Sephora. And note that you can use your Sephora gift card at any Sephora location (standalone or inside JCP).
Yes. Are you looking to purchase one? You can quickly and easily buy a JCPenney gift card through Gift Card Granny.
Yes; however, you can only use a max of two gift cards for online orders. Shop in-store if you wish to use three or more gift cards on a purchase.
For what it’s worth, I also learned that you are unable to use your gift card at the JCP outlet stores.
Wondering the amount on your card? There are multiple ways to check the balance of your JCPenney gift card; online, at a retail location or over the phone.
Yes, yes and yes! Go ahead and use that gift card to get your hair done!
