Ross Dress for Less: Review and Giveaway

Update: This giveaway is now closed.  Congratulations to winner Farrah Graff!

Ross provided me with a $25 gift card to experience their store AND are offering up another $25 to one of my lucky readers!  More on that in a bit.

About Ross:
Ross Dress for Less offers significant savings of 20 to 60 percent off department store regular prices, featuring an exciting mix of nationally advertised brands in clothing and gifts.  Check out the Ross website and "like" Ross Dress for Less on Facebook.

Ross Dress for Less opened 3 more brand new stores in Chicagoland on Friday, October 10.  They're located at:

26 E. Randolph St, Chicago, IL 60602
Cicero Marketplace Shopping Center, 2945 S. Cicero Ave, Cicero, IL 60804
New Lenox Town Center, 475 E. Lincoln Hwy, New Lenox, IL 60451

You can find a Ross near you by using their store locator.

My Experience:

While Ross Dress for Less has many, many clothes, you'll find a little bit of everything!  I think the saying above, "Experience the Treasure Hunt," describes Ross perfectly!  You never know what you'll find when you visit Ross.  Each store offers something different!  Today I saw everything from yoga mats to spatulas to candles to designer handbags.

Of course I couldn't resist spending most of my time in the baby and children's department to spoil my 9 month old.

I ended up getting:
4 pack of long-sleeve onesies, suggested price $26, compare at $16, Ross price $9.99
Walker toy, compare at $32, Ross price $22.99

But here's what I found really interesting...

The Ross Price was $9.99.  They put a "compare at" price of only $16.00, when the suggested price was $26!  I love how they didn't try to inflate the "compare to" price.
