You guys have heard me talk for the last few weeks about TJ Maxx and Marshalls and the massive oppourtunities to save there.  So this week is your turn to do the talking.  For the last three weeks folks sent in their “What I Scored Today” picture and details and I’ve been holding on to them for a big giveaway.

Check out all these pictures of awesome deals and finds.  There are tons of high end designers and big savings.  Your mission is to pick one that you think is best and vote for them below.

For all the deals pictured the full retail price (what it cost somewhere else):  $4640.39
What everyone paid at TJ Maxx or Marshalls: $1104.13

That’s a savings of over $3500 or 76%!!!

Remember these deals are this years fashion and the same exact quality as the department store.  If that doesn’t convince you to give “off price” shopping a try, I don’t know what will. Also note that this isn’t just clothes!! Many of you sent in awesome shoes, dishes, and other deals.

Just enter the name at the bottom of the picture for the deal you like the most. The person that wins will get $250 in TJ Maxx or Marshalls gift cards (their choice!).

The winner will be picked Friday at lunch time and announced in the Friday Finals post that night.

      • Libby

        I agree! best deal! and the price was GREAT!!!

      TJ Maxx is one of the greatest stores ever created. I just bought a bunch of stuff there last week for a great price. I vote for Erin because that dress and shoes are really cute.

    • Patty

      Love Megan's outfit! Might see if I can go find a similar one.

    • Rebecca S.

      Definately Rachel….she got several different things and saved a TON!

    • Karey_morris

      Jenn O..that is a killer price for a Le Creuset pot!

    • Jill

      Love Sarah H's shoes (and that's a perfect work dress!) Def. voting for her!

    • I've gotten Chucks at TJ Maxx for $9,99, so $24.99 really isn't all that great a deal. (And you can get them in kids sizes for $9.99 at the Converse outlets!)

      I've got to go with Christine FTW though.

      • Guest

        I agree I posted before not all deals at TJ are good deals. People forget they in business of making money :)

    • Jennifer

      Jenny, I sent you an email with my deal but don't see my photos up there … which is fine, but does that mean you didn't get my mail, or that you already narrowed the field?


    • Muffinstuff1

      Great deals! With a $250 gift card I could get something for several folks! My vote was for Rachel – a great deal and great name (same as my daughter's).

    • Crazy1comet

      way to go Jenna-$2 top rocks for me!

      • JayB

        I agree! Two dollars can't be beat!

    • Allison

      I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the sea blue LeCreuset pot!

    • Mamatutu

      Jenn O. got the most amazing deal EVER. I lHEART that Dutch oven. Good eye and good timing :-)

    • Jenn O. Awesome find!

    • Nancybgood14

      Jenny i seen today that you are coming to wilminton, nc next month. My husband is happy for me. He even said i could take off the day from work. lol
      He knows this is my hobby. haha
      Thankfully i get off at 2:30 this day. I will have plenty of time. Can wait!!

    • BetsyWr

      I love Rachel's white dress. I would tuck it away as a surprise to pull out next summer :)

    • Behlingx4

      My favorite is the Le Creuset Pot by Jenn O.

    • Lauren

      Christine's skirt!

    • kimana517

      Ha! I have Christine's $245 DKNY skirt, but with pink and gray instead of just gray, and I also got it for $3 – from a thrift store! I had no clue it retailed for that much! I think I'm going to sell it on eBay! =oD

      So anyway… I vote for her. =o)

    • crystalfawn

      Catherine…very cute kids too! Are you by any chance in Altamonte Springs, Florida

      • Hubbardca

        Thanks!! We were at Manassas, Va. We saved well, especially considering I Iet the kids choose their outfits.

    • Zombiemommy

      Yeah, I gotta go with the Le Crueuset dutch oven. And such a beautiful color!

    • Stacey

      I like Erin's cute blue summer dress and black sandals

    • Libby

      Christine's DKNY skirt for $3!!!!!! That's like a 98% savings!!!

    • Lindy

      All those great deals & pics make me want to go SHOPPING tomorrow at TJMAXX, but I'll have to settle for Harris Teeter SD's!!! :) THANKS for sharing!!! No doubt ~ Christine had the best deal by far $3 bucks!

    • Karen

      Christine's skirt…what a deal!

    • amy

      $39 for Le Crueset! We were shopping for these several months ago, it never occurred to me to look at one of these places. You can't even get a used Le Crueset on ebay for that price. Wow!

    • Csoble1214

      Christines skirt!!! So many plain colored shirts would match that, love multi-colored.

    • EDawgATL

      Christine! I have been a devoted TJ's/Marshall's shopper for many years now. And while I don't advocate having multiple credit cards, I do think theirs is worth it. You get 5% cash back in the form of gift certificates for your purchases there. I do almost all my holiday shopping there and then get a nice little reward for myself :)

    • Stephanie

      Love Tambry's outfit/deal!

      • Tambry

        I wish I had a better picture of the cute, cute heels. Love Chinese Laundry's designs, especially when 80% off!!

    • GG

      I like the “”TARA” deal, beautifull outfit for a little girl, great price!!!

    • Anne

      Love the white dress in the Rachel pic and Wow, LeCruset for 40 bucks! Way to go Jenn O. We REALLY want to get some of that cookware, had no idea that these stores might carry it!

    • Ruralreality

      That's inspiring – I HOPE JENNY RUNS THIS CONTEST AGAIN !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Sush_tt

      i liked the jenna's top its beatiful

    • Savannah

      the chuck taylors for $24.99 may not seem like a good deal but for those of us that have pre teen kids know that the color and style of chucks decide it's price. The “neon” styles are hot right now and if you do some looking they retail over $40 and up to $55. My vote is on the neon pink chucks. great deal on a back to school hot find!

    • Erin

      Rachel for sure!! She got $380 for $82!! That AMAZING!

      • JanieP12

        Tambry's outfit spent less and saved more.

    • Jmholley

      kristy, wow what a deal $8 are you kidding me…that's awesome!

    • Nadine

      Kara- How sweet.

      • Libby

      • Coupondiva02

        Yes, it was hard for me to decide between Christine's adorable $3 skirt and Tambry's awesome $400 outfit for $66. I need to take them both shopping with me! :-)

    • Garussells

      I love the wood wick candles and they aren't cheep. I love TJ Maxx, it's one of my favorite stores. You just have to have time to look and DO NOT take your kids!!!

      • Rachel

        I know! I've never seen them there before (that's why I bought 2) ;)
