quick thrift tip: unique/valu thrift VIP days

A few of you have tweeted or texted regarding what days each Unique/Valu Thrift Stores have their VIP savings days, so I thought I’d do a quick little post on the subject. And if you don’t have an “I M Unique” savings card yet, here’s why you should!!

It’s free to sign up! All you have to do is provide a little bit of basic info, including your email address. The entire process takes less than five minutes, and you can sign up at the front of any store. READ: You cannot sign up for the card the day of the a VIP-only sale, whether it’s a sale day or holiday. I’ve seen people try, and they are strict about this!

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll save 25 percent off your purchases one day a week at all Unique and Valu Thrifts stores.

You’ll also receive coupons and sale alerts via email. Sometimes the coupons are good for $10 off.

Here’s a run-down of when each store has their savings days…

The Unique Thrift stores in Minneapolis, Crystal, Burnsville and St. Paul offer the discount on FRIDAYS. (Read my review of the Unique Thrift Store in St. Paul here!)

The Valu Thrift in Woodbury has it on THURSDAYS.

I hope you all have had wonderful Thursdays so far. I’m counting down the hours until my post-work yoga session at my favorite studio in town…it’s been so long since I’ve worked out, I’m sort of nervous!

xo,

Meghan

  1. I love my I M UNIQUE card!

    Another thing my stores here (DC metro area) do, which I hope (for your sake!) is nationwide is have a 50% off everything sale on pretty much an weekday holiday (for example, there was one on Monday for MLK Jr. Day). The stores are crazy packed, but it’s worth fighting the crowds for.

  2. oh how i miss my twin cities thrift stores. i moved to duluth recently and haven’t been out to the thrifts here. i think we have a savers and a salvation army. i miss unique and family pathways, my go-to stores. for now i’ll live vicariously through your blog!
