Do you love buying name brand clothes, but hate the high prices? Join the club, sister! As a mom, I have even started to feel guilty spending money on myself and I would much rather buy something for my little boy instead! I know many of you mamas out there feel the same way! A few years ago, I figured out how to get free clothes at places like Express, and I thought I should let ya’ll in on my secrets!

How to Get Free Clothes Using Ibotta
If ya’ll know me, you know I can’t sing Ibotta’s praises enough! With Ibotta, I can get free clothes from Express, which is one of my favorite clothing stores! Ibotta is an app that gives you cash back on your everyday purchases from grocery stores, restaurants, clothing stores, and more! You can read more about it in my post on apps that pay. My favorite thing about Ibotta is that they have “any brand” offers where you can buy any brand of a certain product and be eligible for a rebate! They frequently have any brand rebates on diapers, milk, and eggs, which are all staples in my house right now! If you sign up for Ibotta here, you will get $10 extra in your account when you redeem your first rebate.
So you are probably wondering what Ibotta has to do with getting name brand clothes for free, right?
Once you have earned cash back with Ibotta on things you purchase everyday, you can redeem your cash for actual cash via PayPal or you can redeem your cash for gift cards! There are a variety of gift card options, but my favorites are Express and Amazon! I get free clothes from Express pretty often thanks to Ibotta! (Wait for when Express has their 40 – 50% off sales and you can get even more for your money!)
Thred Up is my newest obsession! It is an online consignment store where you can buy name brand and designer clothes (for women and children) dirt cheap! Sign up here and you will get $10 to spend on your first purchase. I get free clothes through Thred Up by selling them my used clothing and my sons’s used clothing and by referring friends and family, easy as pie!
Shopkick is another awesome app where you can earn gift cards to some really great stores! Download the app on your phone and open the app when you are going in or out of your favorite stores, like Target or shopping at the mall. When you walk into the store with the app open, you will get “kicks” that you can redeem for gift cards. You can also earn kicks by scanning certain products in the store, making a purchase with your linked Visa or MasterCard, and inviting your friends to join (you each get $2 worth of kicks). Sign up here and you will get $2 in your account automatically!
Swagbucks is a website and app that you can use to earn points that are redeemable for gift cards from Amazon, Target, Wal-Mart, and more! There are a ton of different things you can do to earn points. I personally earn most of my points by using their search engine, doing short surveys, and shopping though their website to get cash back (similar to Ebates). If you do a couple of activities on the Swagbucks website every day, your points will add up pretty quickly! Redeem your points for an Amazon gift card and you can get brand name clothes for free!
Before you buy anything online, you definitely need to head over to Ebates! Just search for the store you are shopping on the Ebates website and it will tell you how much cash back it offers for that store. Then click through to the store through Ebates and just shop like you normally would! After you make a purchase Ebates will credit your account with however much cash back you earned. Then four times a year, Ebates will automatically send you a check or PayPal payment for the amount you have earned.
Using Ebates when you have a gift card for Amazon, Express, or any other store makes your savings so much sweeter! Not only can you get free clothes with the methods I explained above, if you also use Ebates, you can earn money buying your free clothes! Also,if you join here, you will get a $10 bonus after you make you first purchase using Ebates. It just doesn’t get much better than that, right?
So there you have it! Now that you know my secrets, go treat yourself to some free new clothes! You deserve it! 🙂
