HomeGoods, T.J. Maxx and Marshalls online shopping offer deep discounts from the comfort of your couch—but do you know these secret shopping tricks for finding the best deals?
We’ve all spent hours roaming our local HomeGoods store. The wide variety of interesting finds coupled with the convenience of having all those finds in one place just can’t be beat—or can it? HomeGoods, T.J. Maxx and Marshalls have online storefronts that offer that same accessibility without having to step foot in a store.
Our Favorite Finds
KitchenAid Six-Quart Stand Mixer
KitchenAid appliances are my weakness. From pretty stand mixer bowls to dozens of available attachments, KitchenAid offers highly customizable mixer options. Snag the classic lift stand mixer at a savings of $150 when you buy it through T.J. Maxx.
Not feeling the white color? There’s also a black colorway available for the same price.
Emile Henry Fluted Pie Dish
Emile Henry is known for their famous salt pig and pie baking tools, and the high-quality reflects the price. After a little digging, I found a fluted pie dish for 43% off at HomeGoods. Made in France (ooh la la), this ceramic pie plate boasts a shiny glaze, fluted edges, and heat resistance of up to 500 degrees.
Kate Spade Stainless Steel Kettle
Sometimes you need to eschew the electric kettle and enjoy the simplicity of a stainless steel kettle, especially when you can find this pretty designer appliance for nearly 30% off. Kate Spade and Lenox created a kettle suitable for all cooktops in a blush glaze or cherry print that adds a pop of color to any kitchen.
Vitamix Slim One Blender
Hidden in the appliances section of T.J. Maxx is one of the best blenders on the market! The Vitamix Slim One blender boasts simple controls and a powerful blade that slices through everything from carrots to ice with ease. Included is a temper for extra-thick sauces. Pick up this luxury small kitchen appliance set at a savings of $50.
Le Creuset Stoneware Baking Ramekins
Le Creuset is known for its quality cookware, and this two-piece baking ramekin set in dainty pink holds up to that reputation. Pick up the set for $6 off and whip up mousse, custards or creme brûlée in minutes (and in a fashionable serving dish).
Corkcicle Canteen Bottle
Corkcicle routinely makes our list of the best water bottles. They deliver up to 25 hours of chill for cold drinks and up to 16 hours of insulation for warm drinks. This behemoth stainless steel 40-ounce canteen, 45% off, is triple-insulated and offers a vacuum-sealed lid for a spill-free sip.
Calphalon Nonstick Lidded Pan
Marshalls offers incredible finds, like this 12-inch nonstick pan from Calphalon for $20 off the list price. Side carry handles for easy portability and durable hard-anodized construction make this a nonstick pan you’ll reach for every time.
All-Clad Stainless Steel Cookware Set
Despite being slightly blemished (much like the offerings during the All-Clad Factory Seconds sale), this All-Clad cookware set is still one of the best cookware sets available. Pick up this All-Clad sale set at a savings of $120. Included are seven high-quality heirloom pieces at a total steal.
Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Casserole Pot
Lodge’s cast iron skillet has received internet notoriety for its solid construction and all-purpose application, but did you know that Lodge makes some of the best Dutch ovens, too? This 7.5-quart Dutch oven offers the same cast iron lining that shoppers love, coupled with an enameled exterior in several beautiful shades. Buy it through HomeGoods and save $20.
Emile Henry Ceramic Baguette Bread Maker
Pick up this ceramic baguette maker as a gift for a bread baker you fancy, or use it to bolster your own collection of bread-making tools. Not only is it $50 off the list price, but the lidded construction offers three holes for carbon dioxide to escape while baking, leading to a thin, crispy, perfectly-baked crust every time.
Online Shopping Tips
Taste of Home shopping editors have a few tricks up our sleeves when it comes to HomeGoods, Marshalls and T.J. Maxx online shopping. Senior Shopping Editor Katie Bandurski, a self-proclaimed HomeGoods enthusiast, offers her personal tips for shopping the off-price retailer’s online store below.
If You See Something You Love, Buy It
The deals at T.J. Maxx and HomeGoods don’t last forever, and items tend to sell out very quickly. If you fall in love with a piece of home decor or a quirky new mug, add it to your cart ASAP. Otherwise, you might miss out.
Keep an Eye Out for Top Name Brands
If you’re looking for a certain brand or designer, you have to do a little digging! The deals are so sweet, that some brands like KitchenAid and Le Creuset are not searchable on the site. Instead, shop by category and keep an eye out for “Reveal Brand” icons. It’s like a treasure hunt!
Consider It Your One-Stop Gift Shop
When I say these brands have something for everyone on your list, I mean it. As a Shopping Editor, I do a fair share of my gift buying at T.J. Maxx, Marshalls and HomeGoods. They carry options for kids, parents, significant others, friends, neighbors—and the prices can’t be beat!
If you’re shopping for a specific holiday (hello, HomeGoods Christmas decor!), start early. These merchants tend to have holiday items several months before the big day, so the sooner you shop, the better the selection.
Explore the Specialty Shops
The specialty shops—like the cashmere shop at T.J. Maxx or the idea shop at HomeGoods—offer insights into what’s currently trending. They often highlight the best finds, so it’s worth checking them out!
Download Shopping Apps
Not only do the store apps offer convenient shopping and push notifications for the latest arrivals, but they also have a few surprises like the visual search feature. Looking for specific cookware or aprons? Use the visual search feature to snap a pic and receive tailored recommendations of similar merchandise.
In-Store Shopping Tips
There are a few ways to ensure you’re making the most out of your visit. Some of the best finds are available on what employees call the “track.” The track is comprised of curated racks in the middle of the store, and what’s available differs at every store.
Another good rule of thumb for both in-store and online shopping is to always check the clearance section during “J” months. The stores’ biggest markdowns occur in January and June, going into July. Shopping online at Marshalls, HomeGoods and T. J. Maxx offers tons of great clearance finds year-round, so take a peek whenever you’re on the site!
Lastly, check the price tag color when you’re shopping. White price tags are regular merchandise, while red price tags indicate that an item is on clearance. Yellow price tags indicate the final clearance price, so snag any finds with yellow price tags! Keep in mind that even white-tagged items may not be restocked, so toss any must-have items into your cart.
