BIG NEWS! Boden Vouchers Available on Gilt and Ruelala!


Edited to add: Today I noticed I had a promotion in my Gilt account that gives money off tiered purchases. If I buy the middle price voucher, it deducts $30 so I can get $250 in credit for $135! I am not sure if all accounts have this promotion but you can check if you were on the fence about buying! 

My secret to buying from my favorite retailer for professional clothes, day clothes, and clothes for my kids is the vouchers! Sometimes Boden sends them to customers, just because. And sometimes you can buy higher credit value for a lower dollar amount. 

I began my history as a customer using these vouchers (bought on now-defunct websites like Plum District). More recently, the vouchers have been available on Gilt and Ruelala. Both just had a voucher deal with Boden in early September and it must have gone well because the deal is back! 

It goes live tomorrow. You can access them on Gilt or Ruelala now!

This time around the dollar values are a little different than the deal in September: 

"Up to 35% off merchandise credits:

$100 for $150 credit

$165 for $250 credit

$325 for $500 credit"

The buy-in is a little higher but the % off is similar. It stacks with discount/promotional codes since the voucher code goes into the gift certificate/voucher area at check out. And with the recent holiday drop, you can buy all the festive clothing to make for a joyful holiday season! I have my eyes on this festive Breton (I like to size up a little so I have room for Christmas cookies!) and already grabbed this Christmas tree shirt (where the tree is made out of bicycles!) for Chris. And I just love these tree appliqué dresses for the girls! 

If you haven't shopped Boden before, you can click here and get 20% off with my referral link! 

If you have shopped before, you can stack a discount in the promotions box. Promotions change with some regularity but at the time of this post, you can use m7p9 for 20% off the regular site or f4j6 for 15% off Boden preview. 

While the vouchers have an expiration date, I have found that when I have needed to do returns, I get back the full value of the voucher vs the amount I spent. It makes for a good deal for sure! Happy Shopping!

Fall Clothes are my favorite

Harry Potter Cloak


It's pandemic fall and I'm barely leaving my house as the case counts in the US break records. But we did get out a few times and thus, wore some clothes. I am swamped with work and the kids' school but I desire to catalog these moments. Above was on Halloween when we went to an outdoor gathering for the girls' virtual dance classes with the Hope Academy. 

Above, I am wearing a child's cloak (size L) from the Boden x Harry Potter line. Rosie is too (size S)! She didn't want to wear a costume but the prospect of matching helped. Emilia has one of these cloaks too! When we got the catalog she immediately fell in love. Then she read the books soon after. While they were not inexpensive for such a fanciful piece, I know from the Roald Dahl line that they will retain value on the resale market and the girls can age through them. I also rationalized it because I like them way better than the ones they sell at Universal Studios (where we will eventually go post-pandemic). They sold out so quickly that I didn't have a lot of time to think about it but I had a big account credit to spend, thanks to a Boden focus group I did. So... long story short, we have capes! `

The marital entity of Chris and I turned 10 about a month ago. We watched our wedding video as a family! It was so fun to revisit it and share with the girls. Here, I'm wearing a Boden dress I bought during the last sample sale I worked (December 2019). 

Had we made it to a pumpkin farm, the girls would have worn these fall themed looks I think. Dress available still from Nordstrom here

And finally, a Zoom look from last Friday for my digital media literacy class. I taught to black boxes so I couldn't even see if they grinned at my witchiness. I hope you and yours are well!

Boden x Gilt Voucher Deal is Back!

Starting tonight, Gilt is offering a pretty decent deal on Boden account credit, also know as "vouchers." Boden sometimes mails/emails small dollar value vouchers ($10, $15, $20, or if you are really lucky, $25) to customers as a way to entice them to buy. They seem to do so at intervals during the year, like leading up to back-to-school, around the holidays, for Mother's Day, etc. They also occasionally send customers Birthday and Half Birthday vouchers. When you ask customer service how to get on the list for vouchers, they usually say you need to be a catalog subscriber and then after that, it is a random draw. 

I've been able to buy a lot more Boden for my money thanks to these vouchers. They usually have expiration dates but I have found that if I return something, I am nearly always credited back the voucher amount as account credit to use on something else, with no expiration. 

But one of the first ways I began shopping Boden was because I could buy account credit for lower than its value on websites like Gilt. In the current deal you can save up to 34% off (in addition to the 20% off and free shipping you can get with coupon: g3u7). The vouchers work like gift certificates so you can stack them with a coupon code since they go in separate boxes. This round of vouchers is available for purchase from August 30th until September 6th. 

The voucher amounts for purchase are as follows:

Valid on Sale + Regular Price
Up to 34% Boden Credit:
Package 1: $125 credit for $85
Package 2: $175 credit for $115
Package 3: $250 credit for $165 

My referral link for Boden is here if you haven't shopped them before. You will get a 20% off coupon and I will get a treat too. I am not sure what I will buy with mine but some of the new fall items look really lovely. Happy Shopping!
