What is the LL Bean Daily Markdown

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 exclusive offers on items they’d marked down for that day only.

Of course, there were a limited number of items in the inventory available for purchase at these special prices. And then once they sold out, the sale was over.

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, as well other categories.

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. There are new deals every day. Let me explain how that all works.

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. As shown here, it can include apparel but it’s not limited to that category.

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 special offers 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. I know this because when I was writing my article on what goes on sale in January, this mint green, down blanket was included on this sale page.

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 outdoor gear categories. So, it could include camping gear, boots, backpacks or camping packs, tents and much more.

On the other hand, if you scroll down on this LL Bean daily markdown page, you’ll find other items on clearance. So, more discounts.

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 wicked good slippers marked down almost 60% and selling for just under $30.

Links to LL Bean Daily Markdown pages

Here is the link to access the Two-a-Day Daily Markdown page on the LL Bean website. Remember: it updates at 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. Eastern each day.

Also, here is the link for the once-a-day Daily markdown page on the LL Bean website. Remember: it focuses on travel and gear exclusively.

So, if you’re a fan of LL Bean gear, I would bookmark both those pages above and set a timer on your phone to log on each day to check out the sales, deals, coupons and special offers.
