Online pre-registration for the spring 2010 Vera Bradley Outlet Sale is now available. The cost to pre-register is $5.00 per person. You can sign up online from now until April 23, 2010.
Registration is only required for sale attendees who plan to purchase items at the sale. It is not required for admittance to the sale. For example, if you want to take your husband or children, and they will not be buying anything, there is no need for them to register. Registration is only needed to check out and is used to verify that attendees do not exceed the $2,500 per person purchase limit. In addition to the registration confirmation form, you will need to provide a photo ID when you check out at the sale.
Online registration is available until April 23, 2010. If you miss that date or do not want to register online, you can do it at the sale. However, there’s a few advantages to taking care of it in advance:
1. One less line to wait in! Registration is not handled at the checkouts – it’s in a separate area. If you are like me and hate to wait in lines, it’s a good idea to take care of it online.
2. Coupons! If you pre-register online, you will receive an outlet sale coupon for $10.00 off any purchase of $50.00 or more. However, keep in mind that this coupon is only good for Friday, April 30, 2010.
3. Sale Updates – Vera Bradley will send out sale updates during the event. Keep an eye on your e-mail to learn about markdowns and specials that occur during the three day event. In addition to email, another good place to get updates is through the local radio stations. FM 95.1 usually broadcasts from the sale, and I always listen to them to receive updates.
If you do register online, make sure you have a working printer. You will need to print out a copy of the confirmation. My guess is that you will also receive an email confirmation. Personally, I like to print mine out right away, just in case the email gets “lost” on its way to me. Also, after you print it off, make sure you keep it in a safe spot – you don’t want to lose it before you need it. Last year, mine got buried in some other paperwork, and it took me a little time to track down. This year, I’m folding it up and putting it right in my wallet. That way I have it when I need it!
I have not registered yet. It’s on my list of things to do this week. If I run into any problems when I do mine, I will post them in the comments below. Fortunately, I didn’t have any problems last year. However, I did receive some emails from other that had problems accessing the site, especially in the final week. Hopefully, these technical problems have been addressed and the site will be accessible the entire time. However, if you know you will definitely be attending the spring Vera Bradley Outlet Sale, it may be a good idea to take care of the pre-registration ASAP, just to avoid any potential headaches if their registration site receives too much traffic as the deadline aproaches.
To pre-register for the spring 2010 Vera Bradley Outlet Sale, here are the links:
For individual registrations and for groups of less than ten, register here: https://vera.evsminder.com/reg/verabradley/ftwayne10/attendee/
Groups of ten or more can register at this link: https://vera.evsminder.com/reg/verabradley/ftwayne10/group/
You will need to provide the first and last name for each person you register, as well as their individual mailing addresses. Last year, I registered for my mom. I also entered her email address, instead of just mine, so that she could receive updates, etc.
Well, that’s it (I think!). If you have any questions, feel free to post them below. I will help if I can. Of course, if you have any technical difficulties with the site, or need copies of your registration confirmation, contact the Vera Bradley company directly. I’m not affiliated with them and will not be able to help in that regard. However, I do love to chit chat about the sale, and any time I can answer a question, I will!
