Old Navy is a great place to shop if you want the latest styles without spending a fortune. My rule of thumb at Old Navy? Never make a purchase that isn’t at least 40% off the retail price, but ideally 50% off.

Nearly every item in every size will make it to 40% off within six weeks of the original stock date in stores. These tips will help you save money every time you shop in store and at Old Navy online.

1. Old Navy online sales have the edge over in-store sales.

The Old Navy website homepage displayed on an open laptop sitting on a table.

Old Navy online consistently has better savings than Old Navy stores because there are more coupon codes. In-store coupons are much more rare.

There is almost always an Old Navy promo happening online, and the coupon codes live on the site in the header or near the bottom of the page. Plus you can always get a coupon for joining email or text, more on that below. And OldNavy.com has free shipping over $50 for rewards members, always-free store pickup and free return shipping. Plus, I rely on Old Navy community reviews to hear how people who own the product and have worn and washed it talk about its quality.

Check out today’s Old Navy deals on KCL, and you’ll see many of them are online or online-only.

 

2. Many of the best Old Navy sales are one-day deals.

You’ll find some of the best prices on newly-released, in-season styles during limited-time online and in-store sales like Today Only Deals and 2 Days Only Deals.

Some of the deals you can expect to see include: 50% off activewear, jeans, and swimwear, $4 – $8 leggings, $8 – $12 dresses and shorts, and more.

The bad news? These usually can’t be combined with other offers or discounts, including employee discounts. The exception is the 20% email coupon that I talk about below. It will stack with one-day Old Navy sales.

 

3. These are the upcoming Old Navy sales to watch.

These are some of Old Navy’s most popular recurring sales.

 

Old Navy Flip Flop Sale

We predict the next sale will take place on June 17, 2023.

The Old Navy Flip Flop Sale is a one-day event each year in mid-June. Expect the sale to happen on a Saturday. In 2022, the Old Navy Flip Flop sale took place on Saturday, June 18. $2.00 flip flops sold both in stores and online.

 

Old Navy Back-to-School Sale

Next upcoming sale will be August 2022.

Old Navy runs back-to-school sales from mid-July to mid-August, but the best sales happen in early August. Look for Old Navy coupons to stack with the sales.

Old Navy hosts multiple summer clearance events.

  • The second summer clearance sale happens over the Fourth of July. Last year, the sale included clearance up to 75% off. Last year’s sale took place on July 4.
  • The third summer clearance takes place at the end of July and brings back the same clearance up to 75% off. Last year’s sale took place on July 29.

 

Old Navy Pajama Sale

Next upcoming sale will be November 25, 2023, Black Friday.

Old Navy pajama deals happen throughout the months of November and December, but the best day to buy Old Navy pajama bottoms is on Black Friday, when flannel bottoms for adults sell for just $5.00 in store only and 50% off online.

 

Old Navy Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales

Next upcoming sale will be November 25 and November 28, 2022.

Between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Old Navy hosts a series of incredible one day sales. Black Friday. Depending on what you’re shopping for, you might want to start shopping the Saturday after Black Friday, when Cyber Monday deals start.

 

Old Navy Jeans Sales

Old Navy jeans sales happen about once per month throughout the year. KCL considers a good jeans sales to be 50% off or better. Price points start at $10 for kids or $15 for adults. Always look for an Old Navy coupon to stack with the sale.

 

4. Subscribe to Old Navy emails and receive a 20% off coupon.

Subscribe to Old Navy emails and check your inbox, because they’ll immediately send you a 20% off coupon for your entire order. It’s valid in stores and online, and it expires two weeks after it’s sent.

The best thing about this promo code? The Old Navy email promo code works on sales normally excluded from coupons like Today Only Deals, 2 Days Only Deals, and Hot Deals.

The $12 jean shorts in the screenshot above is a 2 Days Only Deal, which is excluded from coupons, according to its fine print. But as you can see, the unique 20% off coupon I received for subscribing to Old Navy emails worked like a charm, bringing my cost down to just $9.60.

 

5. Sign up for Old Navy text alerts and receive $5 off a $35 order to get started.

Receive exclusive promos and offers when you sign up for Old Navy text alerts. Text PERK to 653-689 and get $5 off a $35 order to get you started. Or you can enter your phone number at OldNavy.com here.

I signed up for texts on June 18, and the code I received was valid until July 1, twelve days after I received it.

 

6. Earn Old Navy Super Cash based on your total before coupons.

Old Navy Super Cash can be earned and redeemed only during specific ‘Super Cash’ dates throughout the year. During a Super Cash earning period:

  • A $25 spend will earn you $10 Super Cash
  • A $50 spend will earn you $20 Super Cash
  • A $75 spend will earn you $30 Super Cash
  • A $100 spend will earn you $40 Super Cash
  • A $125 spend will earn you $50 Super Cash
  • A $150 spend will earn you $60 Super Cash

Old Navy Super Cash is earned on the your purchase subtotal before all discounts are applied and before tax is imposed. So, if I spend $75 at OldNavy.com, then use a 30% off coupon to bring my total to $52.50, I will get $30 in Super Cash, as if I had actually paid $75 out of pocket.

Note that only one Super Cash coupon will be issued per transaction. Check OldNavy.com here to see if Super Cash earning is happening now.

 

7. Spend the full amount of your Super Cash or lose it.

Old Navy Super Cash redeems like a coupon, not a gift card. Old Navy requires you make a $25 purchase in order to redeem $10 in Super Cash, the smallest increment. The larger the denomination of your Super Cash, the higher your spend has to be to redeem its full value. But, you’re not required to redeem its full value. If you have a $60 Old Navy Super Cash, you can redeem less than its full value on a smaller purchase; you’ll just forfeit the remaining value, which isn’t a huge deal. I do it all the time. Remember, you’re not forfeiting an unused gift card. You’re forfeiting an unused coupon. It’s different.

Whether shopping Old Navy in stores or online, you can redeem a maximum of $60 in Super Cash per transaction.

  • Spend $25 to redeem $10 Super Cash
  • Spend $50 to redeem $20 Super Cash
  • Spend $75 to redeem $30 Super Cash
  • Spend $100 to redeem $40 Super Cash
  • Spend $125 to redeem $50 Super Cash
  • Spend $150 to redeem $60 Super Cash

Let’s say you have $20 in Super Cash you want to use, but your subtotal is only $25. You could still apply your Super Cash coupon code towards your purchase and get $10 off — since $25 is the minimum amount required to use $10 Super Cash. In that case, however, you’d forfeit the remaining $10 Super Cash.

Super Cash cannot be redeemed with any other coupons nor used at sister brands Gap, Athleta, and Banana Republic.

TIP: Reward members and cardmembers can convert Old Navy Super Cash to points as well. You must convert your unused Cash Coupon(s) to points within 30 days of the last day to redeem your Cash Coupon. Each Cash Coupon dollar equals one program point when converted.

 

8. Aim for at least 50% off your entire order.

Old Navy sales and coupons are so frequent that you should never pay full price for anything. Saving at least 50% must always be your goal, and if you follow The Krazy Coupon Lady, you know that’s a pretty easy thing to do.

Here are the price points you should be looking for:

Best PricesRegular Prices
Graphic Tees$1.97 – $2.97$6.00 – $8.00
Leggings$2.97 – $4.97$5.00 – $19.99
Shorts$3.97 – $5.97$5.00 – $10.00
Polos$3.97 – $4.97$9.99 – $12.99
Jeans$8.00 – $10.00$16.99 – $19.99
Uniform Pants$8.00 – $10.00$19.99 – $24.99

 

The only items you won’t save 50% on are the Everyday Magic items like $5 tanks and $8 cheer shorts. Because of their already low prices, they’re for sure the only deals that are excluded from all coupons. Not even the 20% off email sign-up coupon will work on these.

 

9. You must be a rewards member to get Old Navy free shipping.

Rewards members get free shipping from Old Navy on orders of $50 or more.

Even though free shipping from Old Navy requires a $50 minimum spend, you aren’t required to spend a full $50 out of pocket. Just like Old Navy Super Cash, shipping is calculated before any discounts are applied. That means Rewards Members will receive free shipping as long as their subtotal is at least $50. If you have a 25% off coupon, your subtotal could be $50 but your out of pocket would be $37.50, and shipping would still be free as long as you were logged into your Old Navy Rewards account.

If your subtotal is below $50, shipping costs $5.00 for rewards members. And if you’re not a rewards member, shipping costs $7.00 on any order. Nonmembers’ orders will ship for $7.

 

10. Buy online with Old Navy, pick up in store in two hours or less.

Buy online with free in-store pickup, and most orders will be ready within two hours (if the order is placed at least two hours before the store closes).

But there’s a catch: that’ll only work if the item you want to buy is currently in stock at your Old Navy location, since Old Navy doesn’t offer a “ship to store” option.

One more thing to consider: you can’t use gift cards on curbside and in-store pickup orders.

 

11. Place an order in store and get free shipping to your home with no minimum.

If you can’t find an item in the store (or if you’re just looking to avoid shipping charges), place an order through the store, and it will ship to your house for free with NO minimum.

Compare to online, where free shipping requires a $50 minimum purchase.

 

12. Old Navy price adjustment policy gives you 14 days to request the lowest price.

Old Navy offers price adjustments for 14 days after you make a purchase online or in store. So watch for markdowns during those two weeks.

Sadly, items purchased using promotional codes or discounts aren’t eligible. See the official Old Navy Price Adjustment Policy here.

 

13. Old Navy returns are allowed for 30 days.

Old Navy return policy states online orders, no matter how big or small, can be returned by mail for free.

Just make your return within 30 days of the ship date and print a prepaid return shipping label. Online orders can also be returned to any Old Navy store. Go here for more details on their return policy. (Note that it’s 60 days for Athleta purchases.)

The cost of shipping your return will not be deducted from your refund. Check out the other retailers that also offer free return shipping.

 

14. Old Navy price match online prices in store.

Did you know your local Old Navy actually views OldNavy.com sort of like a competitor? Your store wants to keep your business and hopes you won’t shop online.

In fact, local stores and OldNavy.com operate so independently that sale prices, markdowns, and coupons are almost always unique.

However, some Old Navy stores price match OldNavy.com, as long as the lower-priced item isn’t on clearance. The practice might vary by location, so be sure to ask a team member next time you go in store.

We rounded up a list of retailers that price match competitors.

 

15. The best Old Navy in-store sales are on the clearance racks.

Sure, inventory will be more limited in stores and it will definitely require more of your time, but shopping your local Old Navy clearance racks might bring in huge savings.

I recently scored long sleeve graphic tees for my kids for just $0.47 – $0.97. You’ll never find such low prices online.

Speaking of clearance, take a look at the ultimate retailer clearance cheat sheet we put together for you.

 

16. Old Navy clearance markdowns often happen on Sunday and Monday.

A view of the clearance section inside Old Navy.

New Old Navy clearance markdowns come out every Sunday, but depending on a variety of factors, markdowns may not be complete until close on Monday.

For example, men’s, kids’, and baby prices might be updated on a Sunday, while women’s might have to wait ’til Monday.

 

17. Old Navy price tags ending in $0.47 are final price clearance.

The pace and timing of markdowns at Old Navy are not universal, but rather vary dependent on store inventory and available space.

The one thing I do know is that when a clearance tag ends with the digits $0.47, it means it will rarely be marked down again.

 

18. Wait for an extra 30 – 40% off to shop Old Navy clearance.

One of my favorite times to shop online is when Old Navy offers extra promo codes valid on sale and clearance items. These are usually for an extra 30-40% off your entire order, including clearance. In the first six months of 2022, Old Navy offered an extra 30 – 40% off your entire online purchase, including clearance for an average of 12 days per month. Each code was valid for a day to a week, scattered into a few chunks throughout the month. There were a few 15% off codes in early January that we skipped.

 

19. Mid- to end-of-season is the best time to shop for next year.

Did you know that by the time summer officially arrives on June 20, your local Old Navy store is receiving its first shipments of fall apparel? A month later, the store will begin to clearance out summer apparel, making it the best time to buy for next year. See the following list of best times to buy for each season:

  • Spring: April 15 – June 1
  • Summer: July 15 – September 1
  • Fall: October 15 – December 1
  • Winter: January 15 – March 1

 

20. Earn and redeem points across all Gap brands with Old Navy “Navyist” rewards.

Members of the free Navyist Rewards program can earn and redeem rewards across all four GAP brands (Gap, Old Navy, Athleta, Banana Republic), online and in stores. The Old Navy rewards program does not require that you sign up for a credit card. But it does try really hard to convince you to join with incentives.

Here’s a quick breakdown:

  • All Old Navy rewards members earn one point for every $1 spent at any of the Gap brand stores. (1 point per dollar is like 1% cash back in points)
  • Cardmembers earn five points for every $1 spent at any of the Gap brand stores. (5 points per dollar is like 5% cash back in points)
  • All Old Navy reward members can redeem rewards in $1 (100 points) increments across all four Gap brands.

The program has three tiers based on how much you spend each year:

A graphic of reward member tiers.

Core: Spend less than $500 annually and receive double reward redemption days, 125 quarterly bonus points when you shop across GAP brands, free 3- to 5-day shipping on orders $50 and over, and a birthday surprise.

Enthusiast: Spend $500 to $999 annually (or as a cardmember) and get all the benefits of the Core tier plus early access to promotions, more exclusive offers, and 250 quarterly bonus points.

Icon: Spend $1,000 or more annually (or 5,000 points as a cardholder) and get the perks from the other two tiers plus free 2- to 3-day shipping on orders $50 or more, Double Reward Day, 500 quarterly bonus points, Create Your Own Sale Day (15% off any Gap brand), and free alterations at Banana Republic.

TIP: Purchases paid with gift cards or store credit don’t earn points.

 

21. Old Navy credit card holders get 5% back in points.

If you love shopping at Old Navy, you should consider applying for an Old Navy credit card. As a cardholder, you’ll get 20% off your first purchase, earn 5 points for every $1 spent across the Gap family of brands, plus 1 point for every $1 spent anywhere Visa is accepted. Read more about it here.

Additionally, cardholders will also get early access to shop select sales and receive exclusive coupon codes. Old Navy’s credit card has no annual fee but comes with a 25.99% APR, so make sure to pay off your full balance every month.

 

22. Save up to 13.70% with discounted Old Navy gift cards from Raise.com.
