Stretch your department store dollars by signing up for the free JCPenney Rewards program. You'll earn one point for every dollar that you spend and receive a $10-off-any-purchase coupon each time you accrue 250 points.

Here are some ways to sweeten the deal a little further:

  • Enter promo code 3008 or 3015 when you sign up to receive an instant coupon for $5 off any purchase.
  • Earn double points the month that you sign up. Then, make a purchase each month after that to continue earning double points for a year.
  • Use your JCP card to earn an extra 25% in points.
  • Download the JCPenney app to your mobile device.
  • Shop on bonus points days.

Participate in the JCPenney Customer Satisfaction Survey

Look at the bottom of your next JCPenney's receipt and you will find an invitation to take part in an online customer survey. Jump on it before you forget!

Once you complete the survey, you'll be able to print a 10% off coupon. More

Watch for Coupons

Check your Friday newspaper for a JCPenney sales circular. It often contains coupons for $10 off a $50 purchase and $15 off a $75 purchase.

Pay special attention to any circulars or mailings that you receive around the holidays. They have been known to include coupons for $10 off any purchase of $10 or more (that's free money).

Shop Through Mypoints

Are you planning to place an order on jcpenney.com? Access the site through Mypoints.com, and you'll earn two points per dollar spent.

Hint: You can also cash in your MyPoints earnings for JCPenney gift cards.

Search for Promo Codes

If you're placing an order online, be sure to do a search for promo codes before you check out. It's fairly easy to score a 10% off or free shipping code.

  • DealCatcher.com is a good place to look for codes. 
  • Do a simple search for "JCPenney promo code" and you will find many options.

Tip: Not every promo code available online actually works and, quite often, they cannot be combined. Try a few and choose the best deal.

Buy Discounted Gift Cards

Gift cards are another way to save money and you don't need to wait for someone to give you one. Instead, purchase discounted gift cards through a service like Gift Card Granny.

By thinking ahead and paying less for a gift card, you can save up to an extra 16% on all of your JCPenney purchases. More

Shop JCPenney Online Clearance

Sift through the clearance merchandise on JCPenney's website and you may uncover a steal of a deal. The online store will have merchandise from all of the company's warehouses and stores so the selection is much better than at your local store.

For the biggest bargains, check out the closeouts pages and sort departments using the "price low to high" option.  More
