I may be the only person on the planet who loves to find great clothing deals on Amazon and thinks that Amazon is the best place to buy clothes from, but some of my favorite fashion finds have been from Amazon! (Scroll to the bottom of this post for some of my recommendations!)
And I love that most Prime eligible clothing offers FREE shipping and FREE returns! So if something doesn’t fit or I end up hating it, I can just send it right back without worrying about losing money on the purchase.
As I’ve been sharing about some of my favorite Amazon clothing deals recently, some of you have asked how to find the best deals on budget-friendly clothing on Amazon.
Amazon’s search feature is not set up well to find exactly what you are looking for, so you might have to do some poking around.
Here are 5 simple tips to find great clothing deals on Amazon…
1. Be willing to dig.
It’s not always easy to find what you’re looking for at first. Most the time, you have to put in specific search terms to find exactly what you’re looking for. Don’t give up within a few tries; it’s probably there if you’re willing to dig! Use as specific of search terms as possible. If you know a brand name and specific type of what you’re looking for, be sure to include those details in the search terms. Amazon carries a LOT of brands and you might be surprised what you find and the prices they are offering.
What I’ve found works best is to find a few brands that I love and then buy multiple colors of that same item once I know that I love it (because I might be branching out some, but I’m still boring enough to have multiple colors of the same shirt. Hey, if I like it a lot and it fits really well, it’s so much easier to just have the same shirt in different colors!!)
2. Check the related searches.
If you find an item you love, be sure to scroll down on the page to see the “Related Searches” items and the “People Who Bought This Also Bought” selections. In both cases, I’ll often find some great options there that I might not have found just by searching. And both of these tools often turn up some great finds that are in similar styles to what I love!
3. Look for the best reviewed items.
Amazon reviews are a goldmine of helpful information! Often, items will look amazing in the picture, but if you read the reviews, you’ll discover that the quality isn’t great or the sizing is off. I always search for clothes that have at least a 4 star average from 50+ people. To make this easier, you can narrow your search to show only these items when you select 4+ star reviews option on the sidebar.
4. Always check the shipping price.
Many clothes ship free to Amazon Prime members or with a qualified $49 purchase. Make sure you check the shipping price before falling in love with something — because sometimes it won’t be free and might be as high as $5-$6.
If something doesn’t fit, most Amazon clothes purchases can be returned for free, but you have to read the details because different sellers are different. (A general rule of thumb is that if it’s Prime eligible, it usually offers free returns with the free shipping. But be sure to double check!)
5. Look to see where something is made/ships from.
Some of Amazon’s clothing ships from China and takes 4-6 weeks to arrive. Be aware of this when you are looking at items — especially if you are hoping to get them within in a few days.
