The Hot Trend is Pink this month since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
And the Tanger Outlet Mall has a great way for you to save a lot of money, if you donate just one dollar when you shop there.
There are always great deals to be had at the Tanger Outlet Mall in the Wisconsin Dells. From Coach to Adidas. This mall caters to all kinds of shoppers with different needs and different tastes.
But through October 20th, the mall is focused on a single cause.
It's called The Power of Pink. It is a way to raise money to fight breast cancer and a way for you to pick up even better deals on items that are already on sale.
At participating stores in the mall, you pay one dollar and you will get 25% off. You need one dollar for each item you buy and those items will get an immediate 25% taken off it.
For example...a Coach purse was almost $95. I donated $1 to the power of pink and got 25% off or more than $23 off. It brought my total down to $71.
These red leather gloves were $96 dollars.
I put in another dollar and I got 25%off. So my total ended up being $72.
These sunglasses were $70 but with that 25% off my total came to $59.
So for a $3 donation, I saved almost $70.
But, you need to bring a single dollar bill there with you. That's how each store that I went to was collecting the donation.
Again, it runs through Oct 20th.
