There’s something addicting about sales that often prompts a person to buy something they weren’t planning on purchasing. Outlet malls remain infamous for deals, making them the best kind of guilty shopping, and some can even save you hundreds of dollars with their specials and coupons. Here are the best outlet malls to visit in Texas.
San Marcos Outlets
It’s two outlet malls meshed into one at San Marcos Outlets. ABC’s The View once named the outlets the third best place to shop in the world. With more than 350 stores, you’re bound to find something you like, along with incredible pricing. Make sure to stop by the guest services office to pick up a coupon book for extra savings.

Grand Prairie Outlets
Grand Prairie Outlets also has a coupon book and unbeatable bargains. For example, during the holidays, you can often find storewide deals at 50-70 percent off. And with so many stores, from Kate Spade to Wilson’s Leather, there is something for everyone. And while the selection of shops may seem overwhelming, it’s worth visiting to see how much you can save.

Tanger Outlet Houston
The Tanger Outlet Houston is a great outlet mall with a sleek modern aesthetic. As with the other shopping destinations mentioned thus far, they also have coupon books and bargains every day. Consider checking out multiple stores before purchasing an item so that you get the best price. Also, check out the clearance section at each store where you can apply some of your coupons, sweetening the deals even further.

The Outlet Shoppes at El Paso
Just off the highway, The Outlet Shoppes at El Paso make for a perfect stop during a road trip.

Most of the shops have daily deals, and you can frequently find extra savings on your phone – just show your phone to the cashier and save even more.
Allen Premium Outlets
Allen Premium Outlets tend to get very crowded, so consider visiting in the early morning or during a weekday. If you sign up for a membership on the Allen Premium Outlets website, you can find significant bargains, or you can stop by guest services for a coupon book.
