Ralph Lauren sales aren't uncommon, but not all of the brand's discounts are created equal. Here's our breakdown of the six best ways to save on Ralph Lauren.

Get Free Shipping at Ralph Lauren

Though Ralph Lauren doesn't typically offer free shipping, it does dole out free shipping coupons a few times a year. You can expect them around Black Friday, winter holidays, and sometimes during seasonal sales such as the summer and fall sales.

Expect free shipping coupons from Ralph Lauren around Black Friday and winter holidays.

When to Pick Economy Shipping

While orders of $135 or more are generally eligible for free shipping coupons, Ralph Lauren automatically applies $8 "Standard" shipping to smaller orders. A cheaper option exists, however: "Economy" tacks only $5 on to your total. What's the difference? Economy arrives within 7 to 10 business days of shipping, while Standard orders are typically delivered within 2 business days.

Ralph Lauren Private Sales

Ralph Lauren usually offers two private sales each year. The spring sale typically takes place around the end of April, and the fall sale around the end of October. Each lasts about one to two weeks.

Private sales generally discount a wide range of apparel, shoes, and accessories from various lines, such as Polo, Denim & Supply, and Lauren. Some home items are included as well. Products are normally marked down by up to 50% or 70% off, and you can expect a coupon to cut an extra 10% or 15% off.

Save Around Federal Holidays

Each Memorial Day weekend, Ralph Lauren has offered a coupon that cuts an extra 30% off sale items — a very good coupon for Ralph Lauren. (Memorial Day is the last Monday in May.) For the past few years, it's also offered a similar deal during the first week of July to commemorate the Fourth of July.

Other federal holidays, such as Labor Day and Columbus Day, have also been marked by some meaningful discounts — but less reliably. They're worth keeping an eye on, though.

Be Patient During Seasonal Sales

Ralph Lauren's Summer Sale, Winter Sale, and End of Season Sales last several weeks, and the best deals often aren't active right away. Discounts sometimes increase as the sale wears on, or stacking coupons may be added that further reduce the price for orders over $135.

On the flip side, if Ralph Lauren offers free shipping with lower or no minimums, it's usually only at the beginning or middle of the sale. So if all you want is that adorable little hat for your co-worker's newborn, by all means, snag it right away.

When are those seasonal sales? Dates vary slightly, but you can typically expect a Winter Sale from just before Christmas until mid-January, a Summer Sale during the month of July or August, and an End of Season Sale around September.

THIS WAS ALL VERY CONFUSING. So the sales are the end of April, the fall sale around the end of October, last Monday in May, the first week of July, Labor Day and Columbus Day, just before Christmas until mid-January, a Summer Sale during the month of July or August, and an End of Season Sale around September. That is really confusing, need a chart, or bullet points to keep up...
