Tips for Buying

This late into the game you won’t want to order online. You’ll end up paying exorbitant shipping fees, and there’s a high likelihood of your costume not arriving until late Saturday evening. Instead, you’re better off shopping online so you can still use your promo codes for extra savings, but choose the “pick up in store” option for shipping. This way you won’t have to pay a cent for shipping, and you’ll be able to drop by the store at your convenience so you know you’ll have it before you head out. Keep in mind that costume options at your local store will vary depending on what has already sold out.
