A successful TK Maxx shop is down to more than just luck
New items are added daily
Hundreds of new products are added both to the website and to the store every single day.
So if you’re keen to snap something up, make sure you visit in the morning before other bargain hunters get there first.

Search online by savings
As well as hundreds of stores across the UK, you can search the TK Maxx website via a “Biggest Savings” option.
Here you can scour bargains across a variety of categories such as toys, women’s or men’s clothes, and then filter your items from “RRP Saving (High to Low)”.
This gives you the chance to spot the hugest discounts – often up to 96 per cent off – in no time.
Prepare yourself in advance
Shopping at TK Maxx is not like going to other stores – it’s not as organised and can be overwhelming.
Making a list of things you like or need will help you navigate the sometimes haphazard aisles to track down some great bargains.
And bring food and water, too, to stop you lagging mid-shop.
There are no stock rooms
Whenever a new delivery is made, it goes straight onto the shop floor and doesn’t get put into a stock room.
So if you like something, pick it up quickly, as there will be no chance to ask a shop assistant to “check in the back” if someone else grabs it first.
How to haggle to get yourself a cheaper deal
THERE'S a trick to the art of haggling and we've revealed our top tips for how you can master it.
Sun Savers editor Giselle Wainwright has broken down the formula for you.
Retail research: Make sure you do your homework so you don't end up "cold" haggling. It pays to be prepared by knowing the prices and deals on offer from other retailers. That way, you can play rival brands off against each other.
Timing is everything: From shopping at quieter times to finding out when a retailer’s financial year ends, your timing can have a big impact on the bargains you bag. When retailers are less busy or below their sales target, they will often offer lower prices to help drive up sales — leaving you quids in. Wednesday can prove one of the best days to do this.
Chat it out: You may think your best bet for saving on your online shop is a cheeky discount code, but 65 per cent of the people who were asked in the topcashback.co.uk survey said they have managed to get a discount via web chat.
Feel for freebies: If you have tried your best to lock in a lower price but the shop just won’t budge, don’t give up on them. You still might be able to secure yourself some extra freebies to sweeten the deal.
Travel to faraway stores
If you feel like you know your local TK Maxx like the back of your hand, head further out to a different store.
Branches out of big cities can often be less busy and will likely have entirely different stock for you to browse.
Keep your eyes peeled for yellow labels
While red clearance stickers indicate a big saving, you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for yellow stickers.
These indicate even bigger reductions that can go down to as little as 20p.
Don’t forget to claim rewards
Treasure is the TK Maxx and Homesense rewards programme.
You can collect keys at different stages of your experience with TK Maxx, from shopping to referring a friend, and then choose from an array of rewards, from homeware products to stylist experiences.

The Gold Label selection has designer brands
TK Maxx’s Gold Label selection has hugely discounted items from the very best brands.
This includes Chloe, Emporio Armani, Stella McCartney and Joseph.
Try and shop midweek
According to TK Maxx insiders, the best time to grab bargains are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings.
Best cancel those midweek plans and get shopping.
Timing is crucial when it comes to a TK Maxx haul

Check the clearance section
If big savings are your thing, you won’t do better than in the epic clearance section, where you’ll find everything from accessories to clothing for rock-bottom prices of up to 96 per cent reductions.
Items get moved here if they haven’t been snapped up after four to six weeks, and quickly get purchased by bargain hunters.
Bring a rolling basket
There’s nothing worse than working up a sweat by lugging all your new purchases around with you, making you unable to pick up anything extra. Bring a rolling basket with you to dump your handbag, coat and new items into – it’ll make your experience a lot more enjoyable.
Make friends with the staff
If you have a friend or family member working at TK Maxx, don’t hesitate to ask them for a favour.
Staff members get extra discounts, meaning even more savings for you.
Use click and collect
TK Maxx offers both click and collect and delivery services if the thought of fighting off other customers for that last Michael Kors bag doesn’t sound appealing.
Click and collect is free on orders over £50, while standard UK delivery is free if you spend over £75, or £3.99 otherwise.
Keep up to date with the latest deals

Don’t be afraid to haggle
Even though TK Maxx already offers superb discounts, don’t be afraid to ask staff members for extra money off.
For example, if you spot a small stain or snag in the material of the item you’re buying, you might be able to get an even higher reduction.
The run-up to Christmas is extra exciting
There will be a series of flash sales and product drops in each of the categories every week in the run-up to Black Friday as part of a month-long shopping extravaganza that takes place both in store and online.
Start with smaller products
TK Maxx is overwhelming at the best of times, so start in the smaller sections by shopping handbags, accessories and sunglasses first.
It can be easier to spot bargains in these aisles rather than diving straight into the clothing section.
Enjoy the experience
From pet products to electrical items, plants to luggage, you never know what you’ll find, so try to enjoy the treasure hunt and best of all, the whopping discounts.
