Carter’s Coupon 25% off + Free Shipping

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.

I haven’t mentioned the nice sales running at Carter’s recently and I wanted to share some of the great deals plus a coupon for you to use on your Back to School shopping.

Currently Carter’s is offering 40% off sitewide on all sorts of items for boys and girls- this includes the brand new items like raincoats or Halloween costumes, 30% off clearance items and 50% off dresses!

They also have some great doorbusters like $5 baby short sleeve tees & shorts, $6 toddler/big sizes, $6 Pants, $6 Leggings $6 Slogans & $12 Hoodies.

Plus what I am very excited about is the new 8 is Great line from Carter’s.  They have extended sizes now available for those of us with older children!  I am truly thrilled about this because my daughter turns 8 this month and all the stores I normally shop at- like Carter’s– she is starting to outgrow.  I like to dress her in cute, colorful, fresh clothes and some of stores that cater to older children often have clothing that feels a little too mature for my little girl.

Now Carter’s is starting to launch sizes that will fit your size 8 child.  You can find items in store or online. And if you do shop online, you can also find some items in size 10 or 12 too.

We picked up a few things recently at Carter’s for my almost 8 year old and for my 6 year old.

PJ’s are my favorite thing to pick up at Carter’s– I got these absolutely darling “This is How I Roll” set with a little princess carriage on it. The pants are so soft- if they came in women’s size medium I would be all over it.

I also picked up some cute new activewear for both of my girls- they start soccer season this month plus I like to dress them in this type of clothing for vacations and outdoor activities. My 8 year old will be rocking that little black tank and green shorts outfit on our trip to Florida later this month.

And here are a few coupons you can use for your shopping, please note these exclude clearance and doorbusters.

Through August 5th, use code EXTRA25 for 25% off a $40 purchase and free shipping!  Click here to print the coupon for use in store. If you don’t spend $50, you can use the 15% off your entire purchase coupon.


You can also use the coupon above through 8/14, online use code CRBLOG20 or you can pull up the coupon in store for 20% off your $40 purchase.


And here is my gorgeous little (almost) 8 year old in some of her clothes- the little floral raglan t-shirt is really cute with jeans, skirts or leggings.  We picked up some pink leggings for $6 and then that little denim dress I just love.  So perfect for fall.

Head over to Carter’s to take a look.
