Save Money on Store Bought Halloween Costumes for Kids

Halloween Express

Halloween Express has a large selection of baby and infant costumes-and many that I saw were on sale. They do offer costumes for all ages as well as decorations and accessories. Every time I viewed the Halloween Express site, a pop-up offering an additional savings coupon was available as well. Halloween Express offers a great deal right now: You can save 25% off your purchase and there is no minimum that you have to spend.

Most costumes are around $30 dollars, but there is a range. The website says many orders ship same-day too, so this is a site to keep in mind if your kids change their minds on what they want to be for Halloween just in case you have to order a little closer to Trick-or-Treating time.


WalMart is the site to shop if you want “Scary-good Rollback prices” on Halloween costumes for kids. I saw super-hero costumes for as low as $12 and a cute bear costume for infants that was only $9! Prices are dependent on size, but what a great selection if you are on a really tight budget.

The site is really easy to navigate too. You can find your child’s category (Baby, Toddler, Girl, Boy) and look through all the costumes available for their size. WalMart has options for you to have the costumes shipped to you or pick them up in the store closest to you. You can earn an additional 4% cash back through Shopathome.com in addition to the already-low prices.

Spirit Halloween

If you do not have a Spirit Halloween store near you, they are a Halloween superstore! The benefit of the Shopathome.com coupons for Spirit Halloween is that they are grouped by favorite costume type. You can look through the “Frozen collection” or “Cinderella” costumes, and even “Paw Patrol” Halloween costumes for kids was listed with a special deal.

There is also an 8% cash back option when you make a purchase at Spirit Halloween. There is even a category of “Group or Couples Costumes” if you and your husband enjoy coordinating.

Wholesale Halloween

If you have a certain price-point in mind for what you want to spend on each costume, Wholesale Halloween is a great resource. They have costumes organized by category in each age group, and if you scroll all the way down on the Wholesale Halloween homepage, you will see icons to look through the costumes that are “under $20,” “under $30,” and even a Clearance section. That is always my first stop!

At Wholesale Halloween, you can save 5% off of a $50+ purchase or 15% off PLUS free shipping on your purchase of $75+.

Costume Express

Costume Express not only has a wide variety of costumes, but they have a great selection of Halloween costume accessories. These are the items that can be so hard to find that you go store-to-store to get all the parts to your child’s costume…and that can be exhausting. Costume Express solves this problem by giving you one-stop to look for any unique Halloween costume accessories you need.

Take advantage of Costume Express’ deals on costume shoes, capes and hats, plus other accessories. You can earn 4% cash back through Shopathome.com. Right now they are even offering 15% off site-wide, so that is worth the look!


Save Money on Homemade Halloween Costumes for Kids

I don’t know about you, but I really do enjoy making a Halloween costume. Sewing is not my best skill, but it is pretty rewarding to start with pieces of fabric and put it all together, plus it can be a great way to save money…although you do need the time. With these tips and coupons, you can save money on making your child a homemade Halloween costume this year!


JoAnn Fabrics is my first stop when I need fabric for a homemade Halloween costume. I could buy a lot more than I do in that store!

  • Start in the remnant area-There are often pretty large-sized remnant all rolled up and priced really well. You can find them near the cutting counter (usually). Since babies and toddlers wear pretty small costumes you do not need a lot of fabric to complete an entire homemade costume if your children are that age. I have had luck buying at least 1 remnant piece for costumes every time I have made one, and it saves me money.
  • Sign up for JoAnn2go-You can receive JoAnn coupons by text message! When you sign up, you will receive a 20% off coupon as a thank you. You will be notified of new coupons periodically as well, so it is a recurring savings opportunity.
  • Make your JoAnn purchase through Shopathome.com-You can earn cash back (in addition to your 20% off savings). Every little bit helps.


Also a store where I could spend a lot of money if I did not use my self-control! Michael’s is great for deals and savings on décor as well as little decorative items that you may want to add to homemade Halloween costumes for kids. Right now you can save 50% off the purchase of a single item…roll of ribbon, jeweled brooch, cute buttons…Michael’s really is a great store for those final touches to a homemade Halloween costume. (**50% off deal is only good through 10/10/15.**)

Deals that will save you money on Halloween costumes for kids-boys, girls, baby, toddler and adult too! earn cash back on your purchase as well.
