How to Score Cheap Designer Jeans

Finding a great fitting pair of jeans can be, well, a challenge. Don’t fret our denim lovin’ friends, we have some super slick ways to score designer jeans on the cheap (without busting your budget)

Thrift stores and consignment shops

Your thrift and/or consignment shop can be a great place to score cheap designer jeans. While consignment stores like Buffalo Exchange tend to have better quality jeans (read: more expensive), you can find pre worn designer jeans at your local Goodwill/Salvation Army.

Designer Discount Websites

By now, you’re probably familiar with online designer discount sites like Gilt Groupe and Haute Look. These sites feature sales on designer brands daily, meaning you can snag a pair of premium jeans for up to 75% off.


Ebay can be an awesome place to find inexpensive designer jeans. For example: a quick search for “William Rast jeans” pulled up almost 1,000 results in Women’s Clothing. You can no doubt find a pair you like and with so many options, you’re likely to bidding against few people. Have a little time on your hands? Browse though the almost 4,000 pairs of “designer jeans” up for auctions.

Sample Sales

If you’re lucky enough to live in a big city with tons of designer stores around, you can hit up sample sales as often as you like. But, as you might know thanks to TBF alerts, there are also online sample sales you can visit. Check out our daily online sample sale roundups to score that awesome pair of designer jeans.

Off Priced Stores

Off Priced stores like Filene’s Basement can be awesome places to find designer jeans on the cheap. Most of these stores have designer denim events, where you can find jeans from major designers like Joe, Paige Premium, James, Citizens for Humanity and more for well under $100. Sign up online at Filene’s Basement to receive notices (and coupons) for the annual events.

    Please be vigilant and careful when buying designer jeans on Ebay, there’s A LOT of counterfeits out there! The best place in NYC for cheap quality jeans is Beacons’ Closet in Williamsburg, by far!!!!

    I usually try to get my designer jeans at Nordstrom Rack, Filene’s, and once in a while TjMaxx/Marshalls! I’ve never bought them on Ebay but have friends who were less than thrilled with the receipt of their goods! Great posting with lots of additional places to look! Especially if you live in smaller towns and the selections are limited.
