Here’s the deal: While SheIn prices tend to be super (actually, questionably) low, SheIn coupon hacks are still essential if you plan to shop this fast fashion mecca. As of Nov. 2022, SheIn owns 50% of the fast fashion market worldwide, with more than 50 million followers on social media. So yes, SheIn is legit. They’ve surpassed H&M and Zara when it comes to sales, and it’s easy to see why when you look at their prices. Plus, when you learn how to use multiple coupons on SheIn, the discounts are incomparable.

I’m here to show you how to bring SheIn’s prices down even further. Think: clothes that are discounted 60% – 80% off regular-price. Here’s everything you need to know about how to stack coupons at SheIn. And, hey, if you need to know more about their return policy, info on the SheIn Exchange program, and how to save at other stores like SheIn — I’ve got you covered there, too.

Don’t forget to download the KCL app for the latest deals, tips, and coupons.

 

1. For your starter SheIn coupon hacks, download their app. You’ll get a coupon for 15% off and another for 20% off.

SheIn throws a lot of coupons at you early on. The easiest SheIn coupon hacks to take advantage of are two codes you’ll receive by downloading the SheIn app (iOS / Android) and signing up for a SheIn account.

These coupons expire one week after you earn them, so try to sign up around the time you’re planning to buy from SheIn. Unfortunately, they only allow one coupon per purchase, but there are other alternatives to earning stackable rewards.

 

2. Earn rewards points every day just by checking in on the SheIn app. If you do this consistently you’ll accumulate around $5 every three months.

You don’t have to spend a penny in order to start earning rewards at SheIn. That’s because they’ll give you points every time you check in on their app. And if you check in on consecutive days, your rewards increase.

Checking in is easy. From the home screen, tap the “Me” tab or the little person icon. Then click “Check-In,, and you’re good. At SheIn, one point = $0.01, but if you check in every day over any 7-day period, you’ll earn around 38 points. I did this for three months and managed to earn $4.94 that I could use on any purchase!

Here’s how else to earn SheIn points.

  • Verify your email; get 100 points
  • Fill out a short survey; 20 points
  • Post a comment on social media; 5 points
  • Post a comment with size info; 2 points
  • Post a comment with pictures; 10 points
  • Get your post featured by SheIn; 50 points
  • Win a livestream contest; 50 points
  • Participate in a live stream; points vary, but they max out at 400 points

You can receive up to 2,000 points daily by commenting on social media. Check their app and social media for new contests every day.

Most rewards expire three months after you earn them.

 

3. SheIn’s Free Trial program gives you a chance to order free clothes each week in exchange for reviews of the items.

SheIn has a Free Trial program where you can fill out an application to get free SheIn clothing to try out and review.

Applications take about a week to process, and items will take about 10 – 12 days to ship. If you’re wary about SheIn’s clothing quality, this is a great way to test out their fit and feel. You’re limited to three applications per week.

Three winners are selected for each item, so we recommend looking at how many people have applied ahead of you. The lower the number of applicants, the better your chances of getting free clothes.

 

4. Learn how to stack coupons on SheIn using $2 – $3 off “reference codes” you can find by searching the accounts of their brand ambassadors on Instagram and TikTok.

This is one of the best SheIn coupon hacks because the retailer doesn’t allow shoppers to stack more than one coupon code at a time. But that rule doesn’t apply to reference codes you find from SheIn’s brand ambassadors on TikTok, Reddit, or YouTube.

I found mine easily. All I did was search “SheIn reference code” on TikTok, and the first few results all had reference codes. When you find one, head to the “My Reference” section of your account page and enter the code.

The code will automatically stack on any purchase you make for 90 days. Then it will automatically be removed from your account. I was able to stack this code with $3 of rewards and a 10% off coupon code I found through the app when I bought a dress for my niece. That brought my savings to 81%!

 

 

5. Hit up the SheIn Black Friday sale for 10% – 20% off.

SheIn does give you a few opportunities throughout the year to save big without the usual coupon-, reward-, and sale-stacking. In 2022, the SheIn Black Friday coupon code scored 10% off $39, 15% off $69, and $20% off $149. We predict they’ll have a similar coupon code around late Oct. 2023.

You’ll also want to keep an eye on SheIn’s Cyber Monday sale. In 2021, they offered a Buy 2, Get 1 99% off.

I used that to save $36.63 when I bought two pairs of super-comfy sweatpants!

 

6. Get up to 30% off during the SheIn Singles Day sale in November.

Along with Black Friday and Cyber Monday, SheIn celebrates another shopping holiday in late fall — Singles Day. Observed on Nov. 11 each year, Singles Day comes from a Chinese holiday celebrating those who are not in a relationship. In 2022, they offered a 30% off coupon for the holiday.

 

7. Save 15% with the SheIn student discount.

Students enjoy an additional 15% off already discounted prices along with free shipping on $49+ orders. Verify your student email address using UNiDAYS to take advantage of this additional discount.

 

 

8. Earn extra discounts and exclusive sales when you join SheIn VIP, which consists of three tiers depending on how much you spend with them.

The SheIn VIP program is open to any registered customer shopping online or in the app. Similar to Sephora’s VIB program, you level up and earn more perks the more money you spend.

  • Spend at least $0.01 or place at least 1 order over $0.01 to reach S1.
  • Spend at least $90 or place at least 2 orders over $0.01 to reach S2.
  • Spend at least $300 or place at least 5 orders over $0.01 to reach S3.

The perks of the tier you’re in are available to you for 12 months from the date you qualified for it.

To be honest with you, the “perks” involved in each tier feel a bit vague. Tiers S2 and S3 are eligible for “Level Up” coupons, when you hit a new tier, but there’s no official percentage off they publicly share. A free shipping card is also awarded to tiers S2 and S3, meaning they don’t have to pay for shipping on purchases under $49 like the rest of us. They also receive “pop-up privileges” to SheIn events.

 

9. Get free shipping with $49+ purchases every day, or try these other ways to get SheIn free shipping.

SheIn offers free shipping on all orders $49 or higher every day. But you can sometimes get free shipping on any order depending on your customer status or even the day of the week. Here are a few ways you can get free shipping at SheIn.

  • New Customers – Create a SheIn account and make your first purchase to earn free shipping.
  • Shop Wednesdays – Free shipping coupons are commonly given out at SheIn partner live events on Wednesdays (these are IRL shindigs). To use the free shipping coupon usually requires a $10 minimum purchase.
  • Shop Sundays – Randomly throughout the day on Sundays, SheIn offers free shipping promotions on their site, app, or social media.
  • Subscribe to emails – SheIn email subscribers receive free shipping promotions in their inboxes.
  • Use the app: Complete tasks in the SheIn app to earn free shipping and other discounts.

 

10. Get free expedited shipping when you spend over $199.

When you spend over $199, you earn free expedited shipping, which generally takes 9 – 12 days.

If you do pay for shipping, standard shipping is a flat fee of $3.99 and expedited shipping is $12.90. That’s not too bad, but when standard shipping only takes a few days longer, I have a hard time justifying paying the extra cost. Or I’ll just hold off on my purchase until I need at least $49 worth of clothes from SheIn. Then I’ll get free shipping.

RELATED: The SheIn Return Policy Made Easy

 

11. Get 5% off SheIn gift cards valued at $200 or more.

Normally we recommend shopping for discount gift cards from places like Raise.com, but Raise doesn’t carry SheIn gift cards.

Instead, enjoy a 5% SheIn gift card discount when you buy $200 and up. So if you select a $200 gift card, your recipient gets $200 to spend, but you pay only $190. You could also buy a discounted card for yourself to save 5% on any $200 you spend.

 

12. You won’t pay for shipping when you make your first SheIn return.

SheIn gives you 35 days following your purchase date to return a product. Per the SheIn return policy, they only accept items that have the original tags and packaging intact — including their hygiene sticker. If they can tell clothes have been worn or washed, SheIn won’t accept those either.

Oh, and enjoy the free return shipping while you can. After your first return, SheIn leaves you on the hook for the $7.99 return shipping cost. Unfortunately I have yet to find any SheIn coupon hacks to nix that fee.

 

13. Get SheIn used at places like thredUp or Plato’s Closet if you don’t want to support fast fashion.

If you stay away from fast fashion, then there are good alternatives that rival SheIn coupon hacks of low prices. Look at second-hand clothing retailers like Buffalo Exchange, thredUp, and Plato’s Closet, which boast prices similar to or even cheaper than what we’ve found on SheIn. You can even by (or sell) used SheIn clothing through SheIn Exchange.

Tip: Speaking of thredUp, be sure to read our tips on how to make the most out of selling your old clothes.
