Tips for Shopping at Charlotte Russe:

1. Look Out for Online Exclusives

Some of Charlotte Russe's merchandise is only available online, so make sure you visit the website to not miss out on new items! In fact, I've found better items online than in my local store, so I highly recommend using their website first.

2. Shop for Fast Fashion Items

Charlotte Russe is all about quantity over quality, meaning many of their items won't last as long as investment pieces. That's okay, though! Save money on trendy items you want to try for a short time by picking them up here.

3. Take Advantage of 20% Off

By signing up for their email list, you can get 20% off a purchase. The easy-to-fill-out form is at the bottom of their homepage.

4. No Price Adjustments

Beware - there are no price matches or adjustments available for online purchases! So make sure you're cool with the price as-is before you buy.

5. Use the Unique "Wishlist" Feature

Charlotte Russe has a unique wishlist section that is separate from your shopping bag. You can create an account and use this to save items you like or want to purchase at a later date. This is a great way to hang onto items you aren't sure about yet, and to wait for items to go on sale!
