Whether you’re looking for towels or a new couch, socks or a crate for your cat, there’s a pretty good chance Overstock.com will have it. Here are 14 ways to save on whatever you crave at this online store.
1. Sign Up for Email Alerts
Overstock sends its email subscribers exclusive coupons pretty frequently, and, as of press time, when you sign up, you could get an automatic 10% off coupon.
2. Join Club O Gold
Club O members get free shipping on all orders and earn 5% in rewards dollars for every purchase. Other incentives include 5% in Club O Reward Dollars every time you pay with your registered card at a participating restaurant and up to 40% in rewards when you purchase certain items on their deals page.
3. Take Advantage of Free Membership Opportunities
Membership to Club O Gold is free for certain people (first responders, teachers and students, active military and veterans, for instance), so be sure to take advantage of it if you fall into one of those categories. Otherwise it costs $19.95 to join.
4. Use Overstock Coupons
Visit Overstock’s own coupon page to take advantage of daily deals that will save you even more money.
5. Get Coupons From Other Sites
Search around for coupon offers from other sites like Coupons.com, RetailMeNot or even Groupon.
6. Install Honey
These aren’t the only sites with coupons that could help you save at Overstock. Instead of spending hours searching, consider installing Honey on your computer and let the coupon aggregation site apply the best coupon code at checkout for you. (Be sure to read the full terms and conditions before signing up so you know what the tool entails.)
7. Consider an Overstock Credit Card
Its Club O Rewards MasterCard offers up to 8% back in Club O dollars on Overstock purchases (5% through Club O, 3% for using the card), 2% back on gas and groceries and 1% back everywhere else. You’ll get a $40 statement credit after your first purchase. Just pay any balances off in full: The card carries a variable APR of 16.49% to 25.49%, depending on creditworthiness. (You can get a sense of where you might fall by viewing two of your free credit scores, updated every 14 days, on Credit.com.)

8. Check Out Flash Deals
Sign up for flash deal notification emails on products or check the Flash Deals page for new discounts starting daily at 12 p.m. EST.
9. Shop Clearance & Liquidation Items
Check out Overstock’s Clearance & Liquidation section for up to 75% off on select items. You can sign up for weekly clearance notification emails, as well.
10. Take a Second Before Making That Purchase
You can often cash in on extra savings by putting items in your shopping cart online and then waiting a bit to actually buy them. Stores often send follow up emails to customers reminding them of what’s in their carts, usually with a coupon attached to incentivize them to make the purchase even more.
11. Go the Gift Card Route
Sites like Raise.com sell gift cards for stores at a discounted price. For example, if you visit the Raise Overstock page you might find an Overstock gift card valued at $50 that costs you $45.
12. Check out PayPal Offers
PayPal often offers discounts on certain shops when you pay with your account. Check their offers page frequently for updated offers.
13. Make Purchases on a Holiday
Like most stores, Overstock tends to offer big discounts around certain holidays. The Presidents’ Day sale, for example, had certain home décor, garden and patio, and luggage items — along with tons of others — at up to 70% off. You can check out holiday sale previews on their Deals Destination page.
14. Ship Smart
Overstock changes its shipping offers throughout the year, so check out their shipping calendar page to make the most of free standard or upgraded, expedited and express shipping offers, which are often associated with specific holidays.
