1. Free Shipping on Orders Over $125

LOFT offers free shipping on orders over $125 by default. However, the retailer does occasionally offer free shipping deals on smaller purchases. Take advantage by signing up for the LOFT e-mail list, which communicates these (and other) code-based discounts regularly.

2. Store Cards that Work for You

Open a LOFT MasterCard and you will automatically earn 5 points for every dollar spent at both LOFT and Ann Taylor stores, plus 1 point per dollar spent elsewhere. At the 2000 point mark, you'll earn a $20 LOFT gift card. The card also gives you 10% off on the first Tuesday of every month, $15 off a purchase during your birth month, and 15% off when you open and use the card. Alternately, the LOFT Love card offers the same benefits but can only be used at LOFT stores.

3. Online Sale Spectaculars

LOFT is practically synonymous with outstanding. Sign up for the LOFT e-mail list to stay abreast of sales on top of sales - it's not unusual to receive a percentage off of existing markdowns (occasionally as much as 60%). You will also be alerted to in-store sales.

4. Save Big If You're a Student or Teacher

Teachers receive 15% off all full-price merchandise through the LOFT Loves Teachers program anytime they shop in store. A valid ID is required to receive the discount. Other program perks for teachers include in-store events, sweepstakes opportunities and more. Students can also save 20% off a full-price purchase with a valid student ID.
