“I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Carter’s. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating.”
I’ve never been one to use shopping as a method of therapy. Retail therapy as they call it. Getting yourself into debt and racking up credit card bills for a moment of satisfaction, or distraction, isn’t my idea of fun. However, if I budget and plan for a shopping trip then I am able to relax and enjoy it for what it is. For the first time, probably ever, I had a mental health shopping day at Carter’s. I had $100 to spend at Carter’s, and it was a blast! Even more than I anticipated it would be, due to the fact that I truly needed some distractions from some challenges I have been facing. The shopping really worked! My daughter is the only one of my kids who still fits into clothes from Carter’s stores, so she was in for a treat. Because my daughter loves clothes, shopping for her was even more special and fun than if it were for my boys. It was a girls’ day of Bea, my mom and me.
Lucky for me there were some great sales going on, with apparel at up to 70% off regular price. In addition to the sales, everyone can take advantage of Carter’s Friends & Family Event with 25% off your entire purchase. Just print the coupon above and take it into any Carter’s store through 12/24, for an extra 25% off of sale prices! The coupon does exclude clearance, doorbusters & Carter’s at Home. I think I was able to use my coupon on everything except for one shirt which was on clearance for about $5 anyway.
In my mind Carter’s has always been a trusted name in children’s clothing, and I absolutely loved the current styles and colors! I had such a difficult time narrowing down outfits because I wanted to buy it all! I managed to come away with about 8 different outfit choices, which made for fun shopping and a happy little girl. I do wish the accessories had greater discounts so I could have gotten matching headbands and shoes, but maybe next time! I have also noticed that the sizing runs a tad small so I do have a pair of jammies that I picked up and need to exchange for the next size up. So many cute pajamas to choose from though!!
In addition to the 25% off Friends & Family Event, they have a rewards program. I didn’t know this going in, but when I spent $100, I received two $10 coupons (like gift cards) to spend on a future purchase. No minimum purchase required when I use them! For every $50 that you spend, you will receive a $10 coupon!
I must say that for the 40 minutes or so that we shopped, my worries and cares didn’t exist. It was nice to not have to think or worry about my problems even if only for a moment! Very much a therapeutic shopping day, and of course, I love making my little girl happy! Such super cute outfits we found!
