Here are the types of discounts you can expect to find at L.L.Bean, and tips on how you can save on your next purchase.

Types of Coupons at L.L.Bean

Throughout the year, there are L.L.Bean coupon codes that apply to any purchase. They also release offers for free gift cards or percent-off discounts on specific products or categories that do not require a code.

Discounts to Expect

The coupon codes L.L.Bean advertises to the general public are typically 10% off with no minimum purchase. For the most part, these codes are released for 5- to 7-day periods around various holidays, such as Veteran's Day, Fourth of July, Columbus Day, and Thanksgiving. We've seen these codes pop up at some point during eight or nine months of the year.

Gift Card Offers

Another common offer is receiving a $10 gift card on a purchase of $50 or more without a code. This offer isn't released as frequently as the 10% off codes, but it tends to be available for a much longer duration, anywhere from five to seven weeks at a time.

Occasionally, a 10% off coupon code will overlap with a $10 gift card offer and you can get both. While it's not very common, we've seen this happen for Labor Day and during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping period.

Category Specific Coupons

L.L.Bean also gives percentage discounts on certain products or categories without a code. These are usually offered when they don't have a 10% code available and are more limited in the products they apply to, but the discount amounts tend to be higher at 15% or 20% off. We've seen these discounts apply to items like bed and bath, sweaters, camping gear, and men's clothing.

Of course, you can also keep an eye out for special sitewide sales listed on the homepage and browse the sale and clearance sections for great prices on individual items, regardless of whether there's a code or specific percent-off discount involved. These sales can take up to 70% off product prices.

Discounts for Email & Catalog Subscribers

Besides the offers that L.L.Bean makes available to everyone, there are a few other ways to get a discount. If you sign up for L.L.Bean emails, you may receive occasional one-time use codes for higher discounts than usual, like 20% off.

You can also sign up to receive free catalogs by mail and these will sometimes include one-time use codes for $10 off or other discounts. Or, sign up for the L.L.Bean Visa card to receive a $10 coupon for every $10 earned.

Shipping Costs

L.L.Bean offers free shipping with no minimum purchase on an ongoing basis. Returns are free for L.L.Bean Visa cardholders if a prepaid return label is used, which is included in the package or by completing and printing an online form. If you aren't a cardholder, the shipping cost will be deducted from your refund when you use a prepaid label or you can just pay to ship it back.

How to Redeem a Code at L.L.Bean

Add the product to the cart and go to your Shopping Bag. Click Add Promo Code on the right side of the Shopping Bag page to apply the coupon code. It's possible to use more than one code on a single order at L.L.Bean, but general percent-off or dollar-off codes do not combine.
