By now I’m sure you’ve all seen the funny new Spendervention commercials on television. It’s the one where a group of friends get together to convince their buddy that they’re spending too much money at designer boutiques when they could be getting the same or comparable items at a much lesser cost if they only shopped at TJ Maxx or Marshalls.

According to TJ Maxx & Mashalls, here are 5 reasons why off-price is the way to shop:

  1. Buying Power – Our merchandise strategy can be summed up in two words – opportunistic buying. While other retailers buy merchandise several times a year, our buyers travel to market over forty weeks a year, sourcing from 10,000 vendors in 60 countries. These wide and frequent market trips allow us to buy closer to need and be smarter about trends. Also, because we are making deals closer to need, we are in a good position to negotiate a better price with vendors, and pass those savings along to our customers.
  2. Unbelievable Savings – Today more than ever our buyers can negotiate even better prices with vendors due to many factors: department stores planning their inventories much lower, overbuying and then canceling orders, or designers overproducing. All these things allow us to deliver the same merchandise sold in department stores, at the same time, at much lower prices to our customers.
  3. Product Quality – At T.J. Maxx and Marshalls our values extend to the important partnerships we have with our vendors. The vast majority of our merchandise is sourced directly from top designers and manufacturers. Over 95% of merchandise at T.J Maxx and Marshalls is the same first quality items that you would find at a department or specialty store at the same time.
  4. Fresh Merchandise – While department stores only receive new merchandise seasonally, our stores receive more than 10,000 new items each week. When you shop at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls, you’re bound to find a new, differentiated selection of merchandise with every shopping experience.
  5. No Sale, Ever – Our reputation has been built on offering our customers an ever-changing selection of brand name family apparel at great values every day. We know customers are bombarded with “sales” and savings messages all the time. We try to keep it simple for them by offering great values every day. There is no need to wait for a sale or clip coupons.

So if you’re looking for great items at an affordable price, check out TJ Maxx & Marshalls. Your wallet will thank you!

    My hubby is a network admin and he had to block,,, and from being able to be accessed from our house. I was out of control. I’m glad he did though, now I do it old school style… I actually try things on before buying them, finding out they don’t fit, and tossing stuff into my closet never to be seen again!

    I just about always buy when clothes and items are on sale. With a family of 5 and one income we cannot buy at high end stores and look for weekly sale ads in the newspaper.

    I’m the one who always tells people where I got cheap… urrrr… inexpensive buys, because I wont buy that overpriced stuff!! It’s just not worth it. I got this fabulous croc purse in a little town in Texas that everyone thinks I got on my trip to Italy. It has a terrific linig and a great look, but it only cost me 25 bucks!!!

    I am always telling my friends when I find a great deal online for things that I KNOW they normally pay full price for. Some of them just spend wayyy too much money on things that they could find for much less money if they took a little time to research. lol

    I have a friend that spends WAY too much on clothing. Every time she goes, she has to make a return trip to bring down her charge card! Her only problem is — when going to TJ Maxx, she finds so many deals, she just spends more!

    For me, I was a total mall shopper for years, spent tons of money on clothes and my Mom would always try to show me better ways to shop. My spendervention has been getting laid off from a job I had for over 16 years. I love hitting up TJ Maxx, its close, convenient and has some really wonderful clothes!

    I always, always shop sales! And my #1 spendervention story/tip is I always take 24 hours to sleep on the idea of spending on a big purchase. Usually, after 24 hours, the impulse urge is gone and I decide I don’t NEED it!

    Thank you!

    My teenage daughter has a closet full of stuff rom TX Maxx and Marshalls. Lucky for me, their prices are closer to WalMart’s than Aeropostale prices. As a working mom, it’s important for me to be able to find current fashion in quality made clothing at prices I can affort without destroying my budget…. these two stores make that entirely possible!

    I purchase all my wedding and shower gifts at TJMaxx and Marshalls. My friends who are the recipients of the gifts I buy love it because they know they are going to get fine name brand gifts and lots more of them because I can stretch my dollars so much more by shopping at both stores. TJMaxx and Marshalls carries the same brands as the high end department stores where friends are registered and I can see what they want/need in their registry at the high end stores and try and “copy” what they have registered by purchasing a similar item at Marshalls and TJMaxx. I can sometimes get them 2-3 gifts at Marshalls or TJMaxx where as if I had purchased them at the high end department store they would only get one gift. Sweet! Thanks so much for the chance to enter.

    I never pay full retail prices. I always tell my friends and relatives the best and greatest deals and the best places to get the sales – which, of course, always includes Marshalls and TJ Maxx. I just recently bought several storage solutions at Marshalls – all on sale! Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this giveaway!
