One of our favorite stores to shop at is T.J.Maxx. I literally feel like each and every time I go there, I end up leaving with some treasure I did not intend to buy! It’s not a bad thing either because at T.J.Maxx, I know I’ll find name brands at budget-friendly prices. Score for mom!! I’m excited to share about the hottest hacks and tips on how to score the best deals and navigate T.J.Maxx stores. This is especially useful for even the savviest shoppers!

1 – Come in With an Open Mind! Treasure Hunt Shopping Style –Β Treasure hunt shopping style! You never know what hidden gems you’ll find in all of the departments at T.J.Maxx, including home, beauty, women’s, men’s, kid’s, footwear, handbags, accessories and more. Their wide range of merchandise creates that “treasure hunt” shopping experience that their customers love. They recommend scrapping your list and coming in with an open mind, because at T.J.Maxx, it’s always a great time to shop the latest designer finds at incredible prices.

2 – If You Love It, Grab It! – No two T.J.Maxx stores are the same, and the average store receives several deliveries per week, with each delivery containing thousands of items. So check out their stores regularly to see the latest great finds! They guarantee that you’ll find something new every time you visit!

3 – Shop the ‘Track’ – If you’re in a hurry or don’t have time to browse the aisles, you can shop the ‘track’ (the perimeter of the store), to get a bite-size view of each department. If you don’t know what you’re looking for, the track can be useful in helping navigate your treasure hunt experience.

4 – Shop the Runway! – Did you know that and select T.J.Maxx stores have a runway section with high-end designer labels for less? Their Runway department can be found in select store locations nationwide and is the most exclusive department, overflowing with European, contemporary, couture fashion, and more! You find the same high-end designers that boutiques and upscale department stores sell, without the upscale prices!

5 – If You Love It, They’ll Lug It! – Select stores offer home delivery, which is perfect for those larger items you want to take home, but don’t want to have to carry! Keep your hands free to continue shopping and let T.J.Maxx handle the rest. Pricing varies based on location and distance, so be sure to ask your local store for the most accurate estimate!

6 – Shop Now, Take Home Later with Layaway! – Select T.J.Maxx locations will hold layaway items for up to 30 days with a minimum payment of $15 or 10% (whichever is greater). This is perfect for back-to-school and holiday gifting season, when you want to store your purchases for another time!

7 – Shop Clearance Products in January and July – These two ‘J’ months are the only true “clearance” months the store ever has. Items get marked down and sold for even less (sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it?).
