Use a Pottery Barn Credit Card

Pottery Barn credit card offers a 5% rebate on your first purchase, and all future purchases earn points that go toward a $25.00 gift card. Card holders also receive exclusive discounts and sale invites. This card does carry a high APR, so use the card only for purchases you can immediately pay off. In the past, if you carried an AMEX card, and enrolled in the membership rewards you could earn double points when you shop Pottery Barn online.

Use Discounted Pottery Barn Gift Cards

Look for discounted gift cards. There are a few websites that offer gift cards that are up to 30% off the face value of the card. Increase your savings with deals on gifts cards like we have for GiftCardMall at Giving Assistant. They have many wonderful deals on gift cards including free shipping and cash back. Find a discounted gift card with cash back and combine it with a great sale price or coupon for big savings!

Buy Floor Models

Take advantage of floor model sales. A great time for good deals on floor models will usually be at the beginning of the year as stores get rid of last year’s merchandise to make room for new items. If a particular item is out of stock, but there is a floor model sitting there, ask if they will sell you the floor model at a discounted price. Make sure you check for damage and request a deeper discount if the item is damaged at all.

Get End of Season Sales

Many of the products sold at Pottery Barn are season specific or designed for a certain holiday. This means a high turnover of merchandise, which equals savings for you! Hit up the end of season sales for some great discounts. Semi-annual clearance could save you as much as 75% off!

Buy From Outlet Stores

Shop outlet and overstock stores for Pottery Barn items that are new, but without the new merchandise price tag. You can find a list of 10 Pottery Barn outlet stores listed on their website under store locator. Outlet stores typically sell overstock, store return, floor model, and scratch and dent products. Be sure to inspect your purchase thoroughly before hand. 

Get a Gift Registry Discount

Getting married or having a baby? Use Pottery Barn and Pottery Barn Kids for your gift registry. Any items remaining are eligible to receive a discount of 10%. You can register for any event and use the 10% savings yourself!

Buy Partner Stores Offers

Check out Pottery Barn partner stores such as Pottery Barn Kids and PB Teen. They may have comparable items at a fraction of the cost.

Save on Shipping

If possible, purchase large items directly from the store. This will save on shipping costs. The cost for shipping large, heavy, or bulky items can really take a bite out of your budget. You may find some items on the website that offer free shipping.

Get an Employee Discount

Need a part time job? Pottery Barn offers a regular employee discount of 40%, and 20% off sale items.

Use Social Media Sale Alerts

Make good use of your time on social media. Pottery Barn will often post spur of the moment sales and deals that you will see if you have liked their page or followed them. Sometimes they post really nifty organizational tips and ideas on their pages that may come in handy. Make sure you also check out the Pottery Barn Outlets page for some great deals!

Buy Used Pottery Barn Items

Search your local ads and yard sale sites for Pottery Barn products. You could also find some great deals at auctions or flea markets.

Discontinued Items

Keep an eye out for warehouse clearance events where you can find discontinued merchandise at a fraction of the original cost.
