JCPenney - the place to be on first and third Fridays



x6.jpegSo a couple weeks ago, Deal Diva Stephanie told you about some changes at JCPenney.

The big retailer, which hasn't been feeling the love lately, has revamped its pricing strategy. It's all about simplicity and letting customers know in advance which are the good deals, the great deals, and the REALLY AWESOME deals. 

We already knew they were ditching the 99 cent finish on most tags, but this week you (like me) probably also a glossy postcard in the mail trying to ramp up excitement for one of their other changes. 

According to my handy dandy postcard (and JCPenney's website) from now on, every first and third Friday is when you MUST go shopping at this mall staple.

Those days are set aside as "Best Prices" Fridays. So no more wondering if you should leave that shirt you loved in the racks on the chance that it will be marked down again in the next couple days. Just get it on Friday and be done with it. (The retailer also has two other categories - "Everyday" and "Month-long values.")

Best part is, you can pre-plan by going to the website and checking out what's on sale under the "Best Prices" tab.

After just a few minutes of scanning, I scoped out a pink cami for only $5, cute flats for $15 and a flowered dress for $12. Not bad.

So there. I've just given you a perfectly reasonable excuse to go shopping tomorrow. Carry on.
