T.J. Maxx only offers clearance sales at the end of a clothing retail season, so these discounts are available in January and July. Tips for saving money at T.J. Maxx include shopping on Wednesdays, following the store through social media and signing up for a TJX Rewards credit card.
The two seasons for clothing retailers are fall, which takes place from August to December, and spring, taking place from February to June. At the end of the season, retailers discount items from that season to sell them quickly.
Wednesdays are typically when T.J. Maxx marks down products, as of 2015. To take advantage of the most discounts, the customer should go to T.J. Maxx on a Wednesday morning when the store opens. T.J. Maxx posts products and deals on its accounts with social media applications, such as Facebook and Instagram. The company also offers contests to win shopping sprees.
T.J. Maxx offers the T.J. Maxx Rewards credit card and a Platinum MasterCard, as of 2015. Neither card has an annual fee. Each card offers a 10-percent discount on the cardholder's first online purchase, along with points for every purchase made at T.J. Maxx and the company's other affiliate stores. The cardholder redeems points for reward certificates. The Platinum MasterCard earns points for purchases made at other retailers, as well.
