Value Village has reward cards. You buy something for five dollars and they give you a stamp. Once you have a card full of stamps everything you buy the next time is 30% off. So I bought a bunch of sweaters and the total after the 30% off was enough to fill another card. So I've done this several times. With the 30% off the sweaters are about the same price as if you bought them at Salvation Army or Hospital Auxiliary. Value Village has gotten very expensive for a thrift store...not happy about that. So I wait for those special deals which come every once in awhile and I buy lots of sweaters! Yummy!
