Spirit Halloween store is that store that temporarily fills an empty spot in your town’s strip mall once a year.
It’s amazing for getting into the spooky spirit, but I’m gonna be honest — it’s not the cheapest option for costumes. But there are ways to get a Spirit Halloween coupon or discount, and they’re always full of cute Halloween costume ideas, so it’s worth checking them out.
Keep these tips in mind so your Halloween spending doesn’t turn into a horror show.
Psst…make sure to follow our Halloween deals page for the latest and greatest at Spirit Halloween and everywhere else!
1. Get a 20% off Spirit Halloween coupon when you sign up for emails.
The 20%-off welcome Spirit Halloween discount should arrive in your inbox within a day or two of signing up. You’ll also receive Spirit Halloween coupons and discounts periodically — look for things like 20% off one item or even $10.00 off a $65.00 or more purchase.
2. You can’t stack Spirit Halloween coupons or discounts.
Only one Spirit Halloween coupon or Spirit Halloween discount per order. Boo.
3. Spirit Halloween clearance items are 30-50% off regular price.
If you can get a clearance costume from the back wall and use a 20% off Spirit Halloween coupon, you can actually get a pretty good deal.
Spirit Halloween store clearance selection is thin, so shop as soon as you can!

4. Price tags ending in $0.99 are full price.
This is essentially all the merchandise in the costume store (except for the clearance wall). Spirit Halloween discounts only come with clearance or a Spirit Halloween coupon or coupon code.
5. Price tags ending in $0.97 or $0.98 are clearance.
These tags are usually yellow, but I’ve seen them white too. For that reason, pay attention to the price tag amount, not the tag color at your Spirit Halloween store.
Spirit Halloween store is more expensive than Walmart and Target when it comes to costumes.
So, if your child wants to be a more common character like Moana, Black Panther or Harry Potter, go with Walmart or Target.

7. Buy Hocus Pocus costumes at Spirit Halloween store — they’re the only official retailer.
Does “obsession” even cover how most of us feel about Hocus Pocus? Welp, Spirit knows all about it, because they have the exclusive on Hocus Pocus costumes.
You can get them on Amazon, but they’re through Spirit Halloween stores, so do your price check on the best deal, first. Chances are, you’ll get the best deal by using a Spirit Halloween coupon in-store.
Buy early because they’ll go fast and may not be restocked. Hocus Pocus costumes and costume accessories range from $5.99 all the way up to $129.99!
8. You only have 14 days to return or exchange unworn costumes.
Even then, Spirit Halloween store won’t refund any shipping fees you pay. You can’t return items you buy online in-store, and during Halloween season, your returns have to be postmarked by October 18th!
TIP: Costumes run small, so size up!
9. Skip shopping online and go to the store to save money.
Since you’ll always pay shipping fees and you can’t get a refund on them if you decide to return your items, it’s worth a trip into a Spirit Halloween store.
Plus, you can try your costume on in the fitting room and hopefully avoid returns altogether! Keep in mind, if you do return your costume, they have a strict return policy! You’ll get a full refund on unworn items if you return by October 18th, but after that, you can only exchange unworn items. If you wait until after Halloween, then your sale is final.
Make sure you have your Halloween costume ideas lined up and ready to go because returns are a hassle!
10. Look for Spirit Halloween items with Amazon Prime shipping!
Selection on costumes and animatronics is low, but you can find a few Spirit Halloween store costumes like Mavis from Hotel Transylvania, Catboyand Owlette from PJ Masks on Amazon with Prime shipping.
Search Amazon for “Spirit Halloween” and then sort to show only the items with Prime shipping.
You can’t use any Spirit Halloween discounts on Amazon prime, but your purchases are backed by the Prime return policy — which means you get 30 days and you don’t have to pay return shipping.
Psst…Amazon returns are ridiculously easy these days, so don’t stress if you don’t want what you bought!
11. After October 31st, all sales become final.
Since the brick-and-mortar store disappears after Halloween, Spirit Halloween store doesn’t offer returns on items purchased after October 31st.
12. Watch Spirit Halloween store video tutorials to learn how to apply makeup and prosthetics.
Find out how to apply scary makeup or how to wear makeup and facial prosthetics together. It isn’t a Spirit Halloween coupon, but we’ll take the tips, too! It’s a great way to get Halloween costume ideas, too, even if you decide to DIY.
13. Ask for a bulk discount if you’re ordering more than 20 costumes.
Take this with a grain of salt because Spirit Halloween store doesn’t promise bulk discounts.
But you should definitely ask for one if you’re buying over 20 of the same costume. If they have inventory available, they might accommodate you! Any Spirit Halloween discount is worth a try!
