Keep scrolling to check out the shopping secrets everyone should know when shopping Old Navy. Plus, go a bit further to shop some of our favorite items on the site right now. Warning: You may just want every single find coming your way.

Looking for the absolute best deals in store? Head in on Sundays and Mondays when Old Navy marks down the prices the most. If you're looking for markdowns on the clearance rack specifically, consider shopping on Wednesdays for the best deals.

While it may vary from store to store, you can often time tell when an on-sale item will be marked down even further by checking out the ending digits on the tag. If a clearance item is marked with a 7 or a 9 at the end (like .47), it's most likely final sale.

It seems the absolute best deals consistently are online—especially thanks to the regularly-available coupon codes.

You can easily score deals on free shipping on OldNavy.com. You can always get it free if you spend $50 or more, but if you sign up for emails, you'll often get codes for free shipping. The deals are even better during "Super Cash" time, when Old Navy will sometimes throw in free shipping or free shipping under $25 at the last second.

You'll stay up-to-date on the best deals and free shipping codes if you sign up for Old Navy's emails. Bonus? They'll send you a coupon on your birthday just for signing up.

It's true that coupons and discount codes are better online, but if you're looking for the best sales, consider shopping in store for many of the one-day sales. It's best to follow your local Old Navy store on social media to become aware of when the sales are happening.

While it's true that some clearance sections at various shops consist of random items that didn't sell, Old Navy's selection is strong and curated. You can get a variety of cute tees in a range of sizes, for example.

Unlike many stores, you can actually use up to four coupon codes on OldNavy.com. Check it out here, where someone used a 25% code, a $75 coupon code, and a 20% off code.
