ยท 3 min read

Urban Outfitters is known for their unique clothing style and creative merchandise.

Because of their one-of-a-kind style, they tend to get a bit expensive. But something like high prices should never stop you from shopping at your favorite store! So, here is a list of 8 lesser-known tips that will save you money at Urban Outfitters.


Don't pay for shipping!

Who wants to pay for shipping? Nobody, that's who. Lucky for you, there's a way to avoid those shipping costs when you're shopping online. 

All you have to do is call the nearest Urban Outfitters store, and instead of ordering it yourself, they will order it directly for you.

They actually don't charge for shipping! 

Another great thing about UO is that shipping is automatically free when you buy $50 or more worth of merchandise on their website, no matter what!


Get up to 15% off damaged clothes

Not to say that you should buy damaged or ripped clothes, but this discount includes deodorant stains.

Choosing to buy a shirt that has deodorant stains from a previous customer trying it on may sound gross. But getting 15% off of a shirt that you can easily wash is totally worth the stained item. 

Plus, it could be worse: they could have not been wearing deodorant. Think about it. 


Get the app!

Reward programs are great, but what if you could have fun while earning them? 

Sign up for the Urban Outfitters rewards program (yes, it's free) and keep track of your progress through their UO app. 

The best part is, you don't always have to spend money to earn rewards; the UO app has contests and giveaways, music, early access to sales, and exclusive discounts. They even reward you for simply engaging with their online platforms which, nowadays, is a common practice by default. 

On top of that, not only do they send you a birthday gift on your birthday, but they send one on your half birthday, too! Talk about going above and beyond! Check it out here: 



Keep items in your online cart

Urban Outfitters doesn't like abandoned shopping carts, so leaving a few items you want to buy in your cart will eventually result in an email reminding you that your cart is still full. 

That same email will also give you either an exclusive free shipping code or a discount on the total price in an attempt to push you to finally buy those items. 

And let's face it, it works!


Follow them on Twitter

Urban Outfitters posts daily on Twitter and at least half of their tweets have promo codes that won't be found anywhere else. 

So put those notifications on and follow @urbanoutfitters on Twitter.


It pays to be a student

It's rare to find a retailer that rewards students just for being students, but Urban Outfitters happens to offer a 10% student discount. You can sign up here: 


Not only that, but you can still use other discount codes and coupons on top of it! That definitely makes the anxiety and stress of studying for finals worth it, sort of. 


The best day to shop

Sunday's are the magical markdown days for Urban lovers, so if you're out shopping on Saturday, don't buy those jeans until Sunday! 


Just work there

Especially for students, Urban Outfitters has one of the highest rated employee discount programs in the world.

Aside from the standard 25% off regularly priced items employees receive, they have something called employee appreciation days. On these days, the employee, their immediate family, and one other specially chosen person (ahem, bff) get 40% off of everything in the store!

So don't just stare at that cute cotton halter summer dress, go buy it! And save some money, too!
