Shopping for back to school clothing is the best when you can select what you want to be on sale - in this case at American Eagle Outfitters (AEO) you can purchase your 2nd item of equal or lesser value for 50% off! This will include clothing in the AEO collection and some exclusions will apply. For example, clearance clothing is already heavily discounted so it's not applicable. There's a list of exclusions here, when you click on 'details' if you want to see the brand names that are not included in this promotion.
Everything that is available at this special offer is clearly marked with "Buy One Get One 50% Off" on the website before you even click to view.
Going back to school means you want clothes that look great but are also comfortable. This AEO Soft & Sexy Tomgirl T-Shirt is $25.77. The blended colour of it is really pretty. There are 8 colours to choose from, so it would be good to grab another. When you buy 2 at once, you'll only pay $38.66 which is $19.33 per Tee. It's a solid price on a high quality line of clothing. I find that AEO Tees wash up well and don't pill up.
For a soft feminine style with long sleeves that don't cling, check out this AEO Soft & Sexy Bell Sleeve T-Shirtthat's selling for $38.69. The front gathers are flattering and are a nice change from regular Tees or baseball shirts. You can pick this shirt up in 4 different colours so when you buy two, your price for each will come down to $29.02.
What goes around comes around and ripped jeans are everywhere this season. This AEO Deim X 4 Hi-Rise Jegging is $64.52 for one pair. Once you buy one pair of these, your second pair will only be $32.26. This makes the cost per pair $48.39.
The above jeggings are available in 4 different shades ranging from light to dark. They range from size 00 up to 20 and you can pick your length of short, regular or long! For sizes up to 14 you can even pick extra long for length.
It's worth checking out the clearance sale too, where prices are 50% off of clearance pricing and are clearly marked before you even click to view an item. Most of the clearance selection is summer wear but we still have several good weeks left yet before the weather switches over on us. The price you see is what you'll pay since the promotion to receive your 2nd item at 50% off isn't valid on clearance clothing.
In my cart as an example, I've placed 4 items. Typically on sales like this you'll generally pay full price for the two most expensive items with two the lowest priced two items being the ones that are discounted at half price.
Not so, in this case! It looks like one pair of jeans is being discounted at 50% off (via the 2nd pair) as well as one of the shirts.
This is a perfect price scenario for you since it's calculated in this manner. I tested out one more order where I took out the women's jeans and replaced them with men's jeans and the cart still shows the two highest price products have the lower priced of the two discounted and the two lowest price items also has one of them discounted. AEO has thought of everything!
All prices are in CAD and duties are covered for you! This means no hidden charges when your order arrives at your door. You'll pay the usual HST and GST during checkout. I recommend that you spend over $50 USD (around $65 CAD) to receive free shipping. Otherwise you may be looking at shipping starting from around $20 and why spend it on shipping when you could be putting that money toward some new clothes for school?
