How To Get Free People For Less

Hey friends! Whew! It has been a HOT minute! I’ll share a life update with you all if you want soon, but for now, I want to share how I get NEW Free People items for cheap, dirt cheap!

Growing up I had close friends that were obsessed with Free People. While some of their styles are a little too out of the box for me, they are still one of my favorite brands and I ‘m constantly updating every season with at least a few Free People styles. Back then, I never thought I would ever own anything from Free People because they can be pricey and I was a high schooler making $8 an hour and paying for my gas lol! I means I could save up for Free People items, but then I’d probably have to walk to school lol! JK! But since blogging, I have a better insight of sales, when to expect them, what price-matching is, what’s worth getting full price, etc. With that being said, I’d say 80% of my Free People items I own were on sale-new releases, not end-of-season sales, and can’t help but share a few secrets for those of you that were in my shoes and love Free People but not so much the price tag 🙂

1. sign up for emails

I keep store emails at a minimum for my very favorites so I don’t get spammed with multiple emails a day from stores, but this is one to keep on hand. This is the quickest way to get notifications of discount codes and mark-downs going on. There’s a ton of winter and spring markdowns here if you want to take a peek! I also like checking out their site because they have a lot of cute styles that aren’t sold anywhere else. 

2. check out other retailers that sell free people

I have a list of them further down, but my go-to to get Free People items right now is Macy’s. I usually check out their free people selection every weekend when they usually have their sitewide sales. Right now there is a sale of sale going on and it’s pretty insane! For example, this top I’m wearing retails for $68, was marked down to $39.99,  and it’s currently on sale for $26.99! It comes in two other colors and it’s a new release, so prices will go back up after the sale is over. Like this top I posted last weekend was on sale at the time for $27 and it’s back to full price again. Definitely, take advantage of the sales while you can!

3. watch for price-matching!

It’s no secret that I love Nordstrom and I know you all do too! One of the many reasons is because they have occasional price matching. This top I’m wearing is price matched at the 60% off rate sold currently at Macy’s, but sizes are sold out in this color and limited in other colors whereas Macy’s has the same price with all sizes and colors available. Also, they don’t always price match everything so I make sure to shop around before I pay full price and half the time I’ll find it on sale somewhere else.

4. where to shop around

Some of my favorite retailers that sell Free People:
6pm– always on sale but “older” styles

I hope you all enjoyed this post and I hope it was helpful for those of you that love Free People as much as I do!


TOP– comes in 3 colors! (wearing XS. on sale here) || JEANS (I sized up one size. more washes/styles here– I want the white ones so bad but I already have the dark and light wash so it’s taking everything in me to tone it down lol!) || SHOES || LIPSTICK (creme cup) || BAG (similar here)

Hope you all have a great weekend! Let me know if you have any other tips or questions in the comments below! XO!
