If you’re like most parents, then you want to make sure your children have quality clothing that can hold up against everything your kids will put them through.
Because of that, Carter’s has long been a favorite among children and their parents. Their clothing is durable, cute, and ready for anything! However, it’s easy to spend more than you’d hoped after a shopping trip there – especially considering how fast kids grow!
Well, thanks to these savings hacks, you’ll be able to outfit your kiddos in the latest fashions for prices that won’t break the bank. Read on for all the best tips to stretch your dollar and save you more at Carter’s.
1. Sign Up for their Rewards Program
Carter’s understands you have many places to shop for your children’s clothing needs, and they appreciate it when you give them your business. Because of that, they’re pleased to offer their Rewarding Moments program, and you’ll be pleased with the savings!
It’s so easy! For every dollar you spend, you get one point. And for every 150 points, you earn $10 off a purchase! You can earn rewards on two of their other brands as well – OshKosh B’gosh and Skip Hop.
There are other perks, too – you’ll get extra savings, opportunities to earn even more points, AND you’ll get to see new arrivals before everyone one else.
2. Apply for and use a Carter’s Credit Card
Carter’s has their own credit card, and you get special perks when you use it! Carter’s really likes to reward their customers, and this credit card takes the excitement even further! Score these awesome perks when you use your Carter’s credit card:
- A special offer just for signing up – recently, newly-minted cardholders were welcomed with a 25% discount when they used their card!
- Free Shipping on your purchases!
- Get a Sneak Peek before everyone else does – Carter’s will give you early access to special events.
- Double Points! Remember the “Rewarding Moments” program we just talked about? Well, if you use your credit card for purchases, every dollar you spend will get you TWO points instead of just one! That means you get your $10 reward after you spend $75 instead of $150. That’s TWICE as fast, just for using your card!
- Extra Surprises. Carter’s will reward you with offers and bonus points. When and how much? That’s why it’s a surprise! We don’t have the details, but knowing how well Carter’s rewards their customers, we’re sure it’ll be amazing.
3. Grab their birthday perks
This is another easy way to celebrate your children’s birthday. Both the “Rewarding Moments” Rewards Club and Carter’s credit card include birthday offers. Score something special for your special child!
This is good for up to four children in your household and applies to homes where a purchase has been made in the last 12 months.
4. Sign up for promotional emails
5. Check Out Their Daily Deals!
Head over to the website or app and check out their “Daily Deals” page. Carter’s will feature their hot deal items all in one place, making it easy for you to take advantage of it. Recent deals featured Buy One, Get One Free on shoes, and Doorbusters featuring clothing at 50% off (and higher in many cases!).
6. … And their Black Friday sales!
Black Friday sales only come around once a year (unfortunately), but Carter’s makes the most of it with fantastic deals! For Black Friday 2020, they had from 50%-60% off everything online and in-store (barring a few exclusions). They also had several Door Busters such as long-sleeved tees starting at $5 and fleece footies starting at $8. Keep an eye out when the holidays come around – you never know what you might find!
7. Don’t miss out on Clearance
Many stores put items on Clearance, and Carter’s is no different. Take advantage of great Carter’s quality at close-out prices when you visit their clearance section online or in-store.
Purchasing clearance items are a great way to save some extra cash while scoring great-quality clothing. For off-season items, consider buying clothing in the size your child will be in next year. This will save you the expense (and extra time) of having to purchase new clothes next season!
8. Sign up for text messages

9. Branch out to other stores!
Carter’s stores are super fun to shop at, but they’re not the only great places to find Carter’s quality clothing. Head out to your nearest department store and check out their kid and baby sections. Many stores sell Carter’s and you can take advantage of those stores’ own particular deals to save you extra money.
Two major examples are Kohls and JCPenney’s. Both retailers are well-known for their quality products, reasonable prices, and amazing sales. When you take advantage of the special sales and deals these and other retailers who sell Carter’s clothing, you can score some significant savings.
10. …including your local Warehouse Club!
Carter’s stores and other department stores don’t have the market cornered on fabulous Carter’s finds – a trip down the clothing aisle or online at your local warehouse club is likely to land you some deals, too!
Sam’s Club regularly carries adorable Carter’s clothing for fantastic prices (recently a 2-pc Boy’s shorts and button-up shirt set was available online for only $5.81!)
11. Make your Carter’s purchases through Rakuten
Formerly Ebates, Rakuten is a savings powerhouse many frugal spenders love. When you make your Carter’s purchases through Rakuten, you’ll get cash back! Currently, shoppers can get 1% cash back when making purchases through Rakuten.
12. Download some savings apps
Rakuten is great, but it’s not the only game in town. Recently, the Ibotta app also offered 1% off Carter’s purchases. Shopkick is another app you can take advantage of. In today’s world, there are so many apps that can help save money – these are just two of them!
13. Check out discounted Carter’s gift cards
Everyone loves gift cards, but we love it more when those gift cards are discounted! An online search will help you find all kinds of Carter’s gift cards, at discounts to help you save even more money. One recent deal on Gift Card Wiki offered a $50 gift card for $47.50 – a 5% discount.
And they’re not the only ones. Raise.com is another great place to check – a recent offering had a $15 card for $14.37 – that’s a 4.2% discount. There are so many others, too!

16. Buy packs for the best deal
Their onesies are adorable! And the prices aren’t bad before you apply all of the hacks here – recent sale prices listed single Doorbuster onesies from $7-$10 each. But this is Koopy, and there are better prices to be paid!
Therefore – concentrate on multipacks. Those same Doorbuster deals on the single onesies get more amazing when you look for multipacks. A recent score had a 10-pack of bodysuits for $28 – that’s a mere $2.80 for each.
Maybe you want long-sleeve onesies instead? Great – there was a 4-pack for $14 – coming out to $3.50 each.
And that’s BEFORE you apply any coupons or stack up reward points!
