Want to save money on an online clothing stylist service?
One of the issues that hold people back from signing up with an online clothing stylist service is the cost. Maybe this might be holding you back. You’re concerned that getting your clothes this way will be too expensive.
What if I told you there were ways to slice $25 here and $50 there off the cost using an online personal stylist service? Yep, it’s true. You really can save money on an online stylist.
Sharing a referral link saves you money
The secret is signing up, scheduling your first shipment or box, and then sharing what’s called your referral link with others. How much you save depends on the online styling company or the subscription box’s terms of service.
For example, with Stitch Fix, you get $25 in clothing credit for every friend that signs up and schedules their first Fix–the scheduling part upon sign up is key for your $25 to come through. Make sure you encourage any people with whom you share the link to schedule that first Fix.
Over at Trunk Club, you get a $50 clothing credit for every friend, family member, work colleague, sorority sister or stranger that signs up for the service and gets a first Trunk in which they spend at least $50.
The more you buy, the more you save
In addition to earning what could amount to free clothing, there are other ways you can save money on the clothes you get from an online styling company. Many offer you an upfront discount when you keep all the items that came in your box.
And Trunk Club, which Nordstrom owns, will waive the $20 styling fee if you add your Nordstrom VISA card to your Trunk Club payment information. You’ll also earn points towards Nordstrom Notes when you pay with your Nordstrom Card for your Trunk Club purchases–sometimes as much as three points per dollar spent. So that’s money you can take with you to Nordstrom to spend in the future.
Money-saving offers from online clothing stylist service companies
Now that you understand the various examples of how you can save money on styling fees and more when getting clothes from an online stylist or subscription box. Now let me outline specific money-saving offers and tips from six online styling companies with bona fide referrals fees that you can use to save money on future clothing purchases. Companies are listed here in alphabetical order.
With Dia&Co’s referral program, not only do you benefit but so do the folks that sign up using your referral link. Here’s how Dia&Co explains how it works:
“You’ll receive $20 credit to Dia&Co for every friend you refer who orders their first Dia Box using your sharing link! They’ll also receive a waived styling-fee for their first box!”
Let your friends know that they can request everyday or work clothing form Dia as well as a Dia Active Box. Nice!
The workout clothing company Fabletics, featured in my review of the best Workout Clothing Subscription Boxes, offers a $10 Fabletics credit for every friend you refer to sign up for Fabletics. Got a lot of friends who like to exercise? That could add up to a lot of free credits to spend on your own workout clothing. Plus, when you sign up as a VIP with Fabletics, you get your first workout outfit for just $25! Fabletics stocks exercise apparel and athleisure gear in sizes XXS to 3X.
3. Stitch Fix
Each Stitch Fix customer has a unique referral link that’s easy to share with friends and family. Simply send it out via text, email, or social media—whichever you prefer!
Once your friend completes the checkout process, you’ll receive a $25 credit to your Stitch Fix account. Credits automatically apply toward your next charge, whether it’s a purchase or the styling fee.
4. Trunk Club
Trunk Club has a super generous referral program. When you sign up as a Trunk Club customer, you get your unique referral link. This is the same as many of the other online stylist companies I’ve mentioned here.
Here is Trunk Club’s description of its referral program:
“Invite your friends to try Trunk Club with your stylist! You’ll get a $50 credit when they spend $50.”
You need to use your Trunk Club clothing credits within 90 days of receiving them. Otherwise, they will expire. By the way, here is my Trunk Club referral link, in case you want to try the service out.
Wantable is the newest online styling company, no subscription needed, that I’ve tried. I’ll be honest–I saw their ad on Facebook, and when it mentioned being comparable to Stitch Fix, I had to check it out.
So far I’ve gotten a half-dozen Wantable boxes. Some were active gear. Others were everyday clothing.
Here is how the Wantable referral program works. Hint: it can save us all money on future purchases.
“Every customer has a unique referral link that’s easy to share with friends and family via email or social media. You’ll receive $25.00 for each friend that signs up once they complete checkout for their first Edit. This typically happens 7-12 days after their order is placed. Your credits will apply automatically towards any future styling fees or purchases.”
6. Yoga Club
I love the workout clothing I’ve received from Yoga Club. It’s referral or refer a friend program is called Share the Love. Your friends get $10 off for life, and you get $10 off your membership price for each person you refer. So that’s $10 off multiplied by however many people you get to sign up for Yoga Club.
