My Old Navy Rewards Haul and A Link Up

I challenged myself this week to do something I have never accomplished before! I had a $15 rewards certificate for Old Navy and I wanted to go into the store and spend as close to that $15 as I could. In the past, if had rewards I would inevitably spend hundreds of dollars beyond the rewards amount. That makes my rewards much more rewarding to Old Navy then it does to me! This time the rewards were about me and what I could score…essentially for free!

My method: I went straight to the clearance section without allowing my eyes to stray and see all of the lovely new items on display. Then I went directly for the accessories which are all heaped together in one little space. If I stayed right in this area, I thought I would be safe! And I wouldn’t have to venture to the fitting room where I certainly would have spotted all sorts of cuteness en route! I found 4 items that added up to approximately $15. I went to the register and after scanning all 4 items, my total with tax came to $15.00 exactly! However, I was told that the total amount had to be $15 before taxes…so I added one more item for $0.99!

Grand total for 5 items from Old Navy after my rewards were taken off: $0.43! Forty-three freaking cents for 5 items! And it was not just 5 pairs of socks or 5 candy bars either!

Here is what I got for $0.43:

1. This adorable pair of bright coral double strap flat sandals.

ONhaul6

The clearance price tag on these was $5.99. Minus the rewards discount which they apply across all items, these beauties cost me $0.15!

These Faux-Leather Double-Strap Sandals in Coral can still be purchased online. There are also a variety of colors available. Price differs based on the color. The current online price for the coral sandals is $15.97. Or you can check your local Old Navy.

2. This neutral striped scarf which I also have in red and I love it.

ONhaul3

The clearance price tag on the scarf was $3.99. Minus the itemized rewards, the scarf cost $0.11!

I cannot find this scarf online, however, there was a giant pile of them available in my local Old Navy so maybe they are also available in your local store.

3. These super comfortable and versatile black ankle strap flat espadrille sandals.

ONhaul2

These were on clearance for $2.97, but with the rewards discount, I paid $0.08!

The black Espadrille Ankle-Strap Sandals are also available online for $11.50. These come in a variety of colors as well. Or you can check your local Old Navy store.

4. These cognac flat mules. They did not have my size, but they had my friend Amy’s size, so I picked these up for her.

ONhaul4

These were on clearance for $1.47. Minus the discount, they came to $0.04!

I cannot find these mules available online. But again, they may still be available at your local Old Navy.

5. Finally, I had to add these adorable lemon print socks to make sure I reached the minimum amount to use my rewards.

ONhaul5

These were marked $0.99. With the discount, I paid $0.03!

I also am unable to find the lemon socks online, but there was a giant bin filled with them in my local store!

So I got all of this…

ONhaul1

…for 43 FREAKING CENTS!

How do you use your rewards dollars?

Keeping it thrifty on the edge,

  1. Those sandals look great! Good for you for staying so close to the reward amount! $0.43? Now, that is an AWESOME haul!

    • Thank you, Mary Leigh! I couldn’t believe the initial total was $15.00 exactly! I wanted to spend $0, but they wouldn’t let me! Grrr… but I was still quite proud of myself! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I really like ON’s shoes, too for cheaper options! And, they hold up well. I love the espadrille pair you got!

    • I wore the espadrilles yesterday, Carrie, and they were super comfortable! I had some trouble with comfort with a pair of Old Navy booties, but once they were broken in after a few wears, they are super comfortable now! Thanks for stopping by!

  4. You got great items! The coral sandals are my favorite! GREAT job staying within the amount of your rewards! It’s VERY tempting to go overboard when you have rewards…

  9. Love the red sandals you got! What a great use of your rewards 🙂 I’m guilty of buying more than I would have to use up some rewards vouchers, haha! It’s a crafty trick by the stores! 😉

    Thank you for the link up!

    • Those sneaky stores and their rewards get me every time, Mica! I have been better though! A month or so back I had $60 in Kohl’s cash and walked out with a bag full of stuff paying only a little over $1!

  10. Wow, pretty impressive!!! I can’t believe you were able to get all that for less than 50 cents. Way to go!!! xx-S

    • It was pretty fabulous, Shannon! I wore the black espadrilles the other day and they were super comfortable, too! So a total win! You could get thrift store items that cheap, for sure!

    • Oh yes, Rena…how I earned those rewards…that’s a entirely different problem area! But I am getting better all around with this shopping bug of mine! Have a fabulous weekend!

  18. This one amazing haul. I have to go to target now, good thing a visit to the mall is on my schedule for the weekend. I only hope they have my size, I am a and those run out before any other size. I sometimes buy things for my sisters and friends too when their sizes are on clearance.

    • I definitely can’t pass on a great deal if I find something in a friend’s size, for sure! Good luck shopping and I hope you score some great deals, too, Osy! Thanks for stopping by!

  19. Your just like me, I am a thrifty, bargain sale shopper myself. Whenever I read a post where someone writes “These jeans are on sale right now for only $99.00!” I think, “What, are you nuts? That is not a sale price!”. You really scored big at ON

    • I have those same thoughts, Amy! If it was a brand new car for only $99, I might think it was fabulous, but definitely not a pair of jeans! Although, I have recently discovered the appeal of quality high end denim…I still get them on clearance, but I don’t really advertise the price! And when I go outlet shopping, I get really frustrated if I can’t find things under $10! If it’s more than $10, it’s not a deal! Haha! Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

  22. so many cute flats! love that first pair of sandals!

  23. OMG I love Old Navy! They have the best sales, usually I head straight to the clearance anytime I’m shopping. I work my way back from clearance to sales to regular price. I have found some amazing deals at ON, cheapest has been .49 cent belt, to .97 cent shirt to .$1.49 jeans! Great haul, now I need to go check out my local On, I want some of those mule shoes.
    Thanks for linking up to #UntamedStyle and hope to see you next week!

    • I think my best Old Navy buy was an adorable periwinkle camisole for 47 cents. And I bought a few polo type shirts for my nephews for Christmas that were also 47 cents. You are right, Cid, best deals in ON! Good luck at your ON, I hope you find those mules! Have a fabulous weekend!

  24. What a great steal for all those items! I usually go crazy with my rewards like you first mentioned and end up paying way more to Old Navy than I should. In order to avoid this I opted out of using my rewards (free money I know!) and spent my style budget on other things this month! I love that you were able to get three pairs of shoes as part of the $15! That hardly ever happens! The coral ones are my fave 🙂

  25. The bright sandals are my faves –
    Have a good weekend !

  26. I love Old Navy! Like obsessed with them and their prices! I love getting the rewards and finding deals! I had seen those exact bright red sandals but they didn’t have them in my size.

    • Old Navy can become addicting because of their amazing deals! But so much good stuff in one place! It’s fantastic! Thanks for stopping by, Ruth! Have a wonderful weekend.

  27. This has got to be the best haul I’ve ever seen!! You got some super cute stuff for paying next to nothing; you’re my hero ;). That’s some serious self restraint, but you’re SO right…what kind of reward is it for you if you go in and spend a ton of money on top of that “reward” credit. You did awesome!! My favorite piece you came away with are those coral sandals <3 <3!

    Jane
    http://www.unextraordinarilyjane.com

    • These coral sandals seem to be everyone’s fave! I am going to wear them today with a black and white maxi dress! And I don’t always have such self-restraint, I’m just on a spending freeze right now…so I was able to get my shopping fix without spending any money!

      And, again, Jane, with the fabulous compliments! You are my hero!!!
