I’ll shop pretty much anywhere, from vintage stores and Amazon to Net-a-Porter if I find something I love, and Saks Fifth Avenue has a special place on my shopping radar. Why? Because it’s so synonymous with quality contemporary labels, top-rated home brands, and high-end designers – I can tell you that when there’s a sale on you can find almost any upmarket buy you desire with that added joy that comes with getting a great deal. 

Armed with the knowledge that Saks is an amazing place to look for investment pieces and designer brands for less, I’ve spent hours analyzing the latest sale and have curated a list of what you should have on your wishlist, whether you’re looking for a chic bag or cookware to elevate your kitchen.

The worst thing about shopping the Saks Fifth Avenue website is that you can’t sort by discount, so I’ve worked out that math for you. (If you don’t like my picks and would like to scour the full sale for yourself, thankfully you can filter by sale and by which promotion you want to shop, which makes it a little easier to find a good deal.)

How I chose the best Saks Fifth Avenue sale deals

  • Designer: Saks Fifth Avenue is renowned for its luxury buys, and if there’s a big discount on pieces from a major fashion house, like Chloé, Valentino or Versace, it’s a strong contender for my recommendations.
  • Discount: A certain 1990s supermodel famously said, "We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day” - and I don’t factor in a Saks Fifth Avenue discount if it’s less than 25%. I generally look for even higher deals, and am most likely to rate discounts of 40% and above in my edits. To compare discounts, I look at retailers like Nordstrom, The Outnet and Net-a-Porter, which carry similar high-end brands, and add Amazon in, for the lowest price on beauty buys. I do keep in mind though, that you might be able to find an item cheaper elsewhere, but it may not have the same authenticity guarantee or customer service - so it’s a bigger risk and better to buy at Saks.
  • Price: I always try to include various price points, for shoppers who regularly buy luxury items and also shoppers with lower budgets who are looking for a rare splurge or a gift.

When does Saks Fifth Avenue have sales and promo codes?

Ok, here’s the lowdown on Saks’ sales. There are seasonal sales, Black Friday, and frequent sales with promo codes that give you discounts for minimum spends. Other than those, there are three main sales I pay particularly close attention to at various points throughout the year, and some even take place at the same time! 

And right now you can use the promo code FREESHIP for free Standard shipping, including Canada, when you spend $100USD or more. SaksFirst Members, of course, get standard shipping free on every order regardless of how much they spend.

    Puffer coats are trending right now, and this Sam. look is currently one of the Saks Fifth Avenue sale’s best-sellers. It’s only reduced for the Friendly Family sale, though, so you only have a few days to take advantage of the discount.

    The cozy wind- and water-resistant Sam.'s Scarlett puffer coat features 90% duck down/10% feather fill, plus thumbhole cuffs - a cool way to stay warm - and a detachable hood with shearling trim.

    You may be able to find this deal at other retailers, but they won’t come with Saks excellent customer service. The holidays are coming up and whether you want a cookware upgrade, to add a pop of color to your cookware, or just need a big old pot to cook in.

Fabulous for slow cooking and simmering, the tall design means you have 5qt volume but with a much smaller footprint, plus there’s less boiling over.
