Many clothing stores have great sales after a season, so eye up that nice blazer going for $129, then wait a few weeks until it's 30% off.
In my experience, after I visit a store and make a list of what I truly like, I'll set a reminder to follow-up in a month which is the typical amount of time which goes by before my items hit a sale to move store inventory.
I also recommend actually signing up with a store's electronic newsletter, too. We have seen our parent's inboxes overflow with solicitations and erection pill offers. We, however, we are better than that. We can tell a legitimate source from a scam, and know how to use the 'unsubscribe' link.
We at least know how to use aliases as an additional precaution.
