Did you know that LL Bean has a daily markdown?
Neither did I until I wrote this article on what goes on sale in January.
In fact, in researching that article, I learned that LL Bean actually offers a number of daily specials and deals.
So, let me give you the lowdown on these LL Bean daily deals and how they work
What is the LL Bean daily markdown
This daily price reduction, also known as the LL Bean 2 a day, is when the LL Bean website promotes a sales special on specific items it sells.
I remember learning about the LL Bean daily markdown back in the days of Twitter’s infancy.
If my memory is correct, LL Bean would announce on its Twitter feed which item they’d marked down for that day only.
Of course, there were a limited number of items in the inventory.
And then once it sold out, it was gone.
It was kind of like how QVC works with Today’s Special Value.
Anyway, I can remember getting great deals on LL Bean home items, like bedding.
In fact, I could swear that we purchased the blue and white LL Bean duvet cover that we still have on our bed all these years later during a daily sale.
Interestingly, LL Bean still sells this same duvet cover.
It’s called the sunwashed percale comforter cover.
Anyway, as I mentioned, there are two kinds of LL Bean daily markdowns.
Let me explain them here.
LL Bean two-a-day markdown
First, there are the LL Bean twice daily price reductions.
It is literally called Two-a-Day Daily Markdown.
This is how it works.
At 6 a.m. Eastern, LL Bean releases the first of the twice daily markdowns on a specific item.
Then, at 2 p.m. Eastern, LL Bean releases the second of those twice daily markdown specials.
Also, if you scroll down on the Two-a-Day Daily Markdown page, you’ll see other items that are also marked down.
However, I get the sense that these sales specials aren’t nearly as generous as the items that get highlighted twice a day.
Also, these additional items aren’t like the aforementioned Today’s Special Value way of selling.
Clearly, LL Bean still has inventory on this blanket, which I’m still tempted to buy.
Right now, it’s just a hair over 50% off the original price.
True, it’s still pricey.
However, if this blanket lasts as long as that duvet cover I mentioned earlier, then it is well worth the money.
LL Bean daily special
Then there is the LL Bean daily special.
This happens just once a day and usually focuses on items in the travel and gear categories.
On the other hand, if you scroll down on this LL Bean daily markdown page, you’ll find other items on clearance.
I would recommend always scrolling when you visit this daily page.
Because you could end up finding some great deals marked down 50% or more.
For example, one day I found women’s slippers marked down almost 60% and selling for just under $30.
