Eagle eye shopper, and savvy Texas reader Kristi just phoned in a breaking news tip about how to get a new handbag or watch for less at Dillard’s stores around the US.  Seems Dillard’s just started their annual trade-in sale. So clean out your closets and purge the purses!  Bring in an old purse or handbag and get savings on a new one. Here are the details.

Bring in any clean, gently-used handbag and use it as your coupon on a new regular-priced handbag or wallet (with a price tag of over $50). Your handbag will be donated to charity! In exchange for your donation, you get:

  • Savings of $15 on a handbag or watch valued at $50 – $75.
  • Savings of  $25 on a handbag or watch valued at $126 – $199.  
  • Savings of  $40 on a handbag or watch valued at $76 – $125.  
  • Savings of  $50 on a handbag or watch valued at $200 or more!  

Used handbags and watches will be donated to a local charity.
