It all depends on where you shop. Carter’s brand stores are not the places for such prices. Even Costco fails to deliver the best prices. Go to Kohl’s, Sears, and JC Penney for the best deals. There you can easily get 65% or even 80% off regular prices. This is what we call the art of saving!

Always buy packs

Carter’s bodysuits usually come in packs of 5 of short sleeves and packs of 4 of long sleeves. Those packs will always be cheaper than single suits unless you find them in the clearance section.

Bed, Bath & Beyond coupons at buybuy Baby

The stores are sisters, so what works at one, will work at another too. This means that your 20% off one item or $5 off $15 from BB&B can be used for Carter’s clothes. This strategy only works in-store, not online, so time to do some brick-and-mortar shopping.

Carter’s sleepers at Costco

The best deal you can find on Carter’s blanket sleepers is at Costco. You can get them for just under $5, but the retailer carries only size 6-months and up, so newborn moms have to be patient or look elsewhere.

Newborn to 6-month sleepers at Kohl’s and JC Penney

Those two stores carry all the sizes of comfy sleepers and you can get them for as little as $6 each with the right coupon and sales price. Stock up when you get a deal like this.

Rompers at Macy’s

Macy’s can’t compete with Kohl’s and JC Penney prices on most Carter’s items, except summer rompers. The store has the biggest variety and the lowest prices of all competition.

Carter’s Coupon 20off

Check out the Last Act section and you might be lucky to score $4 rompers even if the color palette is a bit limited there.

Avoid Carter’s brand store

The only time it makes sense to visit the brand store is during their end of season sales in January and July, but even with 20% off clearance some things are still more expensive than everywhere else.

If you do decide to shop at Carter’s to enjoy the selection, at least sign up for free Rewarding Moments program and get up to 10% back on your purchases. This is huge when compared with an average 3% back from most retailers.

Carter’s outlet stores

Carter’s outlet store is just the same store with a different name. The same in quality and price, that is. The only difference is that the outlet store might be bigger and the selection wider, but often older.

Carter’s other brands

Carter’s owns various brands, like Osh Kosh and Skip Hop that offer very different apparel. There are also Carter’s brands with different names made for specific retailers. Just One You for Target, Child of Mine for Walmart, and Simple Joys Made by Carter’s for Amazon are lines of clothes “made by Carter’s”. While that sounds great, many parents agree that the cut and quality is just not quite the same.

Finally, why pay the same price for an inferior product when you can get great deals elsewhere on real Carter’s clothes?
