- Bargaining Power - when you don't have to have something immediately, you can shop around for a deal)
- Time for Creativity - like I said above, if you're in a rush - then whatever you can find will have to do. But if you look ahead of time, you can find some unique/personal items!
- Extra Savings by Buying Online - the ability to have items shipped to your home is huge! This keeps you from impulse buys and saves you time! Also, since you're ordering online - you can go through shopathome or ebates. Coldwater Creek has a 2% cash back bonus on whatever you purchase - and there are thousands more stores to choose from!
So here are some deals I found that look pretty good!
Coldwater Creek is also offering no-minimum free shipping + 30% off - but today is the last day! It says that you'll need to enter in this code: WFH4801 at checkout to get your discount, but in playing around on the website it automatically added in my 30% discount! So just have it handy just in case! This is what I found in their outlet section under "Home and Gifts":
