Most orders of $45 or more will include free shipping automatically. Most large items priced $399 or more will qualify for free truck delivery, and all major appliances come with free delivery as well. You can also get thousands of items the same day at your local store with their free buy-online-and-pick-up-in-store program.
You're allowed to return most items if you aren't satisfied with it for a full refund minus the shipping costs. They give you a whole 45 days to decide if you like what you bought. On top of that, you get another 45 days after that to return something for store credit. 90 days is a really long time to decide if you like something or not. I know after almost 3 months of looking at the same chair sometimes you need a change.
Bonton.com seems to constantly have sales, both site-wide and across different departments. If something you like is still at its original price, chances are it will soon be on "sale" and then on "clearance." And sometimes Bon-Ton even offers sales on the clearance stuff! So clearance isn't even clearance, because there's a clearance on clearance...Is that clear? No? here's the bottom line: Unless you'll be heartbroken without said item or you're worried they'll run out of your size, I'd say wait for discount as it will likely be significant.
The best way to save is to sign up for the Lowes Moving Center. You can also stop by your local post office for a change of address packet. These will often have a 10%-off coupon for any in-store transaction, with a maximum discount of $500. (Don't worry if you're not really changing your address: your secret is safe with us.)
