    20. Negotiate Swimsuit Deals

When searching for a new swimsuit it doesn't hurt to do a little planning so you could take advantage of some great sales or coupons on swimwear. The cost saving strategies below will help you spend less on brand name swimsuit, enabling you to splurge on your dream vacation.

1. Opt for Store Brands

Unfortunately it is practically impossible to find a cheap swimsuit from a top designer or unknown brands. But popular national retailers like Target, ASOS or Old Navy do offer trendy swimwear with similar looks at quite affordable prices.

2. Get Extra Savings with Coupons

Before going to the store so a little homework by checking out coupon sites for deals on swimsuits. As a rule you will be able to find discounts and deals offered by such retailers as Target, Macy's, JCPenney and others. For example, using a coupon you can save 20 percent on swimwear at Kohl's or Swimsuits Direct. Target often offers $5 off your purchase of $50, plus using the store's Target Cartwheel app you can benefit from extra in-store discounts. If possible, stack online and in-store coupons to yield the maximum amount of savings.

3. Only Shop Swimsuit Sales

Postpone your purchase of a new swimsuit till the end of summer when retailers run big sales on summer items, including swimwear.

4. Do Comparison Shopping

Savvy shoppers recommend doing some price matching before making a purchase. And this rule applies to buying bathing suits as well. You can compare prices on swimwear items from brands like La Blanca, Roxy, Quicksilver or Jessica Simpson widely available in most department stores and multiple retailers using the ShopSavvy app. Then when you arrive at the store ask the sales person to price match.

5. Head to the Outlets

To save up to 70 percent off a bathing suit from some sophisticated brand or designer check out an outlet store. Plus you can add an extra discount on your purchase if you use coupons or apply holiday sales on top of the already discounted merchandise.

6. Shop at T.J.Maxx, Ross and Marshalls

Consider shopping swimwear at T.J.Maxx, Ross or Marshalls that usually offer generous discounts on many famous brands. For example, at T.J.Maxx you can find trendy one-piece suits for around $25 (or even less) and bikinis and tankinis for just $15.

7. Take Advantage of Discontinued Brands

You can get items from Victoria's Secret's discontinued line of swimwear and Sports Authority's liquidation sale at half the price.

8. Browse Big-Box Retailers

If you are looking for an inexpensive swimsuit check out stores like Target, Old Navy or Walmart. Often these stores feature the fashions that reflect the latest swimwear trends, and this means you can purchase a swimsuit that looks high-end at really great price.

9. Order Online

You can save on your purchase of a swimsuit by shopping online. But make sure the online store offers free shipping and returns. Another benefit of online shopping is that you can choose from a greater selection of products and have more chances to find something specific you are looking for.

10. Shop Labor Day Sales

Don't miss Labor Day sales with clearance prices on swimwear. If you can resist the temptation to purchase suits when they appear on the shelves, you can save up to 60 percent by shopping in mid August or early September. You can also save even more if you apply coupons during holiday weekends.

11. Buy More Than One Swimsuit

If you found a nice bathing suit you love at a great price why not purchase more than one? Sometimes you may come across incredible swimsuit sales, so consider buying more than one item.

12. Shop Beach Sidewalk Sales

If you plan a trip to the beach at the end of July through late August don't miss great sidewalk sales with deal that are too good to pass.

13. Sell Your Old Bathing Suits

If there are several bathing suits in your drawers that are still trendy but you just want some new styles you may sell them online or at your local resale shop. Of course, you will refund only part of the money spent on their purchase but it's better to get some cash that can be spent on buying a new bikini than just store things you never wear.

14. Don't Overlook Boutiques

Boutiques are known for their high prices on a range of merchandise, but sometimes this price policy may not cover swimsuits. If the boutique doesn't specialize in swimwear, it may decide to clear them out to make room for new fall items and will sell swimsuits with steep discounts. Plus at these shops you can score great deals on premium quality name-brand suits.

15. Browse eBay

You can buy inexpensive swimwear at eBay, but before you buy, make sure you check the return policy of the seller. It would be a good idea to find out the original price of the item you want to buy so you don't pay too much in the bidding process.

16. Explore Thrift Stores

If you're lucky there you can find not used swimsuits and swim trunks for men with tags attached.

17. Save Receipts

Don't throw away receipts to get your money back if the suit doesn't work out or you want to qualify for a price adjustment. Once you have made your purchase, consider tracking this item using the TrackIf tool. If the same product gets on sale shortly after you have made your purchase, you can get a price adjustment.

18. Don't Remove Tags and Lining

To be eligible for a refund in case you return the swimwear item you should not only save your receipts, but also keep tags and the hygiene strip in place.

19. Consider Opening a Store Card for Discounts

When you open a store credit card, you can obtain a discount on your purchase of a bathing suit. Or, at least get a retail credit card with rewards you can spend on your next purchase of a bathing suit.

20. Negotiate Swimsuit Deals

If you find a small defect on a swimsuit you like you can ask for a discount, usually from 5 to 10 percent. If the sales person is not sure whether a discount can be provided, consider asking a manager about it. In most cases you will be given the discount, especially if the particular item is the last one in stock.
