(Haters need not apply.)

This was the perfect time to take advantage of the sale going on on LastCall.com, Neiman Marcus' outlet website (one of the few outlet websites that is from an original department store). Not only were they having a 30-40% off sale for women's accessories, but I had two coupons to use: one I received for being an email subscriber ($50 off a $100+ purchase) and another I saw on their Facebook wall ($25 off $50+ purchase). They could both only be used once, and could not be used in the same transaction. If I learned anything from seeing the show Extreme Couponing, its to break up your transactions when you can save a buck. Normally I wouldn't recommend you split your transactions when you face paying two shipping charges, but with the code 'FRSHIP', you get free shipping! 

(also know, when you use your Neiman Marcus card, you get $10 back for every $200 you spend in a given month)


1st Transaction: (Must be >$100 to use coupon)
Item #1: Original NM price = $135, Last Call = $80 (-40%) = $48
Item #2: Original NM price = $235, Last Call = $160 (-40%) = $96
Item #3: Original NM price = $180, Last Call = $125 (-40%) = $75
Item #5: Original NM price = $216, Last Call = $150 (-40%) = $90
Item #6: Original NM price = $265, Last Call = $190 (-40%) = $114
----------------------------
= $423 (-$50 coupon)
=$373
*no shipping using 'FRSHIP'*


2nd Transaction: (Must be >$50 to use coupon)
Item #4: Original NM price = $450, Last Call = $320 (-40%) = $192
----------------------------
=$192 (-$25 coupon, code FBOFFER)
=$167
*no shipping using 'FRSHIP'*


TOTALS
1st Transaction = $373
2nd Transaction = $167
--------------------------------------
= $540


Original Neiman Marcus Prices Total = $1481
I saved $941!!

*I will probably keep only one of the poncho/capes- but I purchased both to see which I liked better in person. When returned, I'll save approximately another $100-$200*

  1. The poncho on the right with the vertical stripes. Wouldn't that make a girl look skinner than horizontal stripes?
