JCPenney 10 Dollar Off Birthday Coupon Deal


I received a JCPenney $10 coupon for my birthday, and couldn't wait to see what I could get for myself.  I've slowly been adding new items to my wardrobe after losing weight over the past year.  I've never been one to buy new clothes for myself (I'd rather buy new clothes for my kids), but now I don't have any other option - I need clothes that actually fit!

A couple weeks ago I managed to get myself some new shorts, capris, and tank tops for just a few dollars - $6.12 to be exact. This time, I bought myself another tank top and I love it!

 

Tank at $9.99 (Was $14)
Total $10.59  
- $10 JCPenney coupon

Total out of pocket $0.59 


I love receiving high dollar coupons in the mail, because it allows me to save even more money by combining it with sales and clearance priced items.  Allowing me to add to our wardrobe for a fraction of the cost, often time just pennies! 

 

What was the last thing you bought for yourself?

A JCP birthday coupon, how exciting!!! These days I surely love buying clothes for my baby girl more than for myself:)

I am in the same position as you--just lost a ton of weight--need all new clothes-but going at it slowly--the last thing I bought was a pair of shorts and a top at Lord & Taylors--they were 70% off and my Mom had a coupon for an add'l 20% off!! I think I spent about 20.00 for the 2 pieces. I miss JC Penney--they closed the store around here 5 years ago or so--

That is an awesome shopping experience! My last great deal was two pairs of Bass Shoes that were originally over $100, both on sale and with a coupon for less than $10 for both.

Nice! I got one on my birthday too. I love that little perk. :)

That is a nice birthday perk! I feel bad that JCPenney has been struggling so much the past few years. I find some really cute things there and their prices are reasonable.

That is a great coupon deal!

The last thing I bought for myself was a tote bag. I find it hard to shop for myself. It is easier to shop for the kids but when it comes down to me, I feel guilty for spending money that could be used for the kids. Glad I'm not the only one!

The last thing I bought for myself was a Disney pin. I got to go to my first Disney movie advanced screening. I saw Planes and since I didn't like the Planes pin set they have out right now, I bought a Mickey Pin. He is wearing aviator glasses. I love JC Penny and their coupons. A couple months ago they gave everyone a $10 coupon. I got a free bath towel :)

Even when I get money for my bday I end up spending it on the girls in some way...even without planning to lol

I love Jc Penney they always have awesome sales and their coupons are pretty good. I was able to score a cargo vest online for $13.94 down from $15.99 (with 20% coupon) and since they offer free shipping to the store I saved on that. Of course you have to wait about 1 week to pick up but hey i'm saving money I don't mind.

My worked for JCP (second job) and got out before all the @#$% hit the fan. Im glad they got rid of that idiot that fired everyone and destroyed it.
