25% Off New Jeans In Exchange For Your Used Jeans

Filed under Charity Events, Shopping

This is the kind of deal I like: It saves you money and warms your heart – or warms your buns in this case. Donate a pair of jeans to help an Albuquerque area homeless shelter or charity, and receive 25% off a new pair.

Aéropostale’s sixth annual Teens for Jeans campaign gives you 25% off new jeans, when you drop off your own gently worn jeans at one of their stores by February 10, 2013.  (Don’t take the Dropping Off part too literally – it’s probably best not to wear them TO the store.)

Jeans can be any brand and any size (larger sizes are definitely in demand in shelters) but all should be in good condition. As a reward for your good deed, you get 25% off a new pair at Aéropostale.

You can donate more than one pair, and you’ll receive a 25% discount coupon for each pair.  They’re not taking any other clothing donations – this deal is just jeans!  Aéropostale distributes the jeans to a local homeless shelter or charity in their network. The overall aim is to help homeless teens, but you don’t have to be a teen to join in.

Start sorting out your closet! Teens for Jeans runs till February 10, 2013, and this is a national promotion at all stores. Take your jeans to Albuquerque Aéropostale stores at Coronado Center and Cottonwood Mall.

If you want to contribute but don’t care about the discount, you can also donate your jeans at Albuquerque BioPark  during business hours. Leave your old jeans in one of the collection boxes at the administration offices at the Albuquerque Zoo or the Aquarium and Botanic Garden. (No need to pay the BioPark admission just to drop items off at the offices.) Los Lunas Middle School is leading that denim drive and depending on how many pairs of jeans they collect they could also win funds for the school.

Comments Off on Let It Go: 30% Off Gap

This shopping deal is perfect for those of us still tackling the spring cleaning.  If you’re clearing out your closets, you can save at Gap stores with the Gap and Goodwill promo in support of the Donate Movement…

Take your used clothing to any Gap store during the Gap and Goodwill Let It Go promo to May 29, 2011, and they’ll donate the clothes to Goodwill on your behalf and give you 30% off your entire Gap purchase. The discount is not just on regularly priced clothes, but includes sale items too.

The discount increases to 35% if you use a Gap, Banana Republic or Old Navy credit card, according to Gap’s Facebook page on the Let it Go deal.

The offer applies at all Gap stores, GapKids, babyGap, and GapBody stores. It’s not valid for online sales (even the whizziest computer whizz would have a tricky time figuring out how to upload clothing donations to the interwebs) and it’s not valid at Gap Outlet or Factory Stores either. Otherwise… have at it!

But remember the Gap Let it Go offer ends on May 29. So start sorting out the closets to do someone else a good turn, and do yourself a favor too – saving dollars!

–Tania  Thanks to Julie at Kansas City on the Cheap for passing along the Gap and Goodwill tip.

Fundraiser: Joy Junction Banquet 2009

Comments Off on Fundraiser: Joy Junction Banquet 2009

Editor’s note: We recently created a new category of posts called “Charity Events.” Items for this category need not have a free/cheap/discounted hook. Publicizing local charitable events is one of the ways we hope to give back to the community. Feel free to submit charitable events to us. We’ll run as many as we can.

Here’s a cause worth supporting. Joy Junction is New Mexico’s largest emergency homeless shelter. This Friday, September 25 (2009), they’re holding their large annual fundraiser. Adult tickets cost $50 each, and children 11 and under are $20. What do you get in return? Plenty!

Enjoy music by country superstar Rockie Lynne, entertainment by Christian comedian Charles Marshall, a silent auction with awesome items, a fabulous meal by Marriott, and much more!

The event will be held at the Albuquerque Marriott Pyramid North. The silent auction begins at 6:00pm, and dinner starts at 7:00.

Buy tickets online now! For groups of 10 or more, call Joy Junction at 217-9586.

Fifty dollars is a small price to pay for such a great event, and think how wonderful you’ll feel knowing you’re helping such a worthy cause!

The Albuquerque Marriott Pyramid North is located at 5151 San Francisco Rd NE, Albuquerque.
