*Sigh* H&M.. Love it or hate it, H&M is one of the fastest growing companies worldwide in the new millennium. Some people shop there so often that they probably know the store inside & out. But did you know that there are short cuts you can take?
-Best time to shop is in the a.m. The store is clean, organized, & no line for the dressing room!
-New items are featured in store before online. If you really like something, best to snatch it up quick!
-Check back for new deliveries. The larger stores restock every day, whereas the smaller stores restock a couple times a week.
-Get on their mailing list! Get special discounts & coupons sent right to your email! And when you subscribe, you get 25% off! Sign up here!
-Download the H&M app, & follow them on social media. When you sign up for their email, they do send out coupons that can be 20-30% off. There might be a chance that you get a 30% off coupon after you download the app! Following them on social media keeps you in tune with discounts, events, & sales!
-Scan bar codes with the app to find your size online. If a store happens to be out of stock in your size, you can scan the item with the app, & it’ll pull it up on the website for you! If it’s not the exact same thing, they will recommend something similar!
-Teachers & students get a semi-annual discount. It’s usually about 15% off for teachers & students, on special discounts days twice a year. Sign up for their mailing list to get notifications for the next one!
-The best times to shop are in the Fall & Summer. The best sales go on in November & June. Also check them out for their deals on Black Friday!
-If a store is sold out of your size or color, a sales advisor can contact another store for you!
-They have a generous return policy. Their policy gives you 30 days to return an item (with receipt) for a full refund. If it is past 30 days, or you don’t have a receipt, you can exchange it for store credit / gift card. Also, if you buy something online, & don’t feel like returning it in the mail? Return it in store to avoid the shipping fee!
-Donate used clothes for 15% off in store! H&M has started a garment collecting initiative in 2013 & has collected over 40,000 tonnes of clothes! Donate any type of clothing you want, (even if it’s a towel) & when you bring it to the register you can get 15% off your whole purchase!
-They started beauty & skincare lines in 2013. Shop from a wide variety of makeup, nail polish, lotions, brushes (and more!) that are reasonably priced (and you can always get the 15% off with them!) Click to shop here!
-Use the 15% off to combine with sales, to save even more money! Usually coupons are not combinable, but the rare exception is the 15% off when you donate something. What are you waiting for?
-Get a deeper discount with gift cards! You can get your hands on some discounted gift cards at Raise.com, & Giftcardgranny.com! Raise has discounts up to 16%, giftcardgranny has up to 30%. Donate a piece of clothing for a whopping 45% off!!
-They started a Conscious Exclusive Collection. As a product of their garment collecting initiative, they have begun to make recycled clothing! Their Conscious Exclusive collection has pieces that are made from BIONIC, a polyester made from recycled plastic! They also use lyocell, cotton, & recycled polyester in this collection!

-Some of their pieces in the Conscious Sustainable collection is made up of 20-30% from recycled garments!
-Keep in mind that their sizing runs small. You may have to go up a size (or two!), keep that in mind that it’s the brand, not you.
