How to Save Money on Summer Fashion with DFCUPerks

Today’s blog post is sponsored by DFCU Financial. You can read our disclosure policy here. Thank you for supporting the brands that support Good Life Detroit!


I love fashion, especially when I can get a good deal on my favorite styles. When you have a big family like I do, saving money is essential to the family income. And just because we have a tight budget, doesn’t mean I can’t look my best or shop for my favorite styles. 

I recently went shopping for new summer outfits. I used my DFCUPerks app to find deals at retailers in my area. For this fashion haul, I decided to shop at Style Encore and Target

STYLE ENCORE STYLES

Style Encore has become my new go-to boutique for finding styles. It’s a local consignment boutique for women that sells a lot of brand names. I have found brands such as Calvin Klien, Coach, Michael Kors, and Old Navy.

If money’s tight and I have an event I have to attend, I like to shop at Style Encore to find a stylish outfit for a lesser price.

USING MY DFCUPERKS APP TO SAVE MONEY AT STYLE ENCORE

When I went shopping at Style Encore, I used my DFCUPerks app to access a coupon for the boutique. I used the “$5 off $25 or more purchase” coupon deal. 

One of the great things about using your DFCUPerks app is you can find deals at local retailers in your area. Before signing up for DFCUPerks, I hadn’t even heard of Style Encore. When I became a member of DFCUPerks and downloaded the app, I discovered Style Encore by searching for shopping retailers in my area.

TARGET SUMMER STYLES

Along with my DFCUPerks app, I can access deals online that are not featured on the app. For instance, I have saved deals for Finish Line, JcPenney’s, and Vistaprint that are available online only. 

Target.com also features a nice online-only deal for DFCUPerks members. You can get $5 off when you spend $50 or more. To access this deal, you log into your DFCUPerks BaZing account and type Target in the keyword search engine.

Click on “view deal” and then click on “ONLINE” on the coupon. You’ll be directed to Target’s website to shop and the $5 off deal will be added when you check out.
