The prices of this outlet are already very good, when compared to other places. But you can find even better discounts! On the outlet official website, you can print discount coupons for your favorites stores. Just click here and check all the offers, right on their website.
If you’re already in Miami or don’t want to print your coupons right now, you can also go to the customer service center inside the Sawgrass Mills Outlet and pay a few dollars for a discount book they offer. Even if it’s paid, it is worth it (if you have not previously printed the coupons). The coupons on site are usually different from the coupons in the book, so you can also use the two forms of discount if you think it’s worth it.
2) Shopping Dolphin Mall
Another good option for shopping in Miami is the Dolphin Mall Miami Mall, which has just about every store you can imagine, and the advantage of being close to downtown Miami. There are more than 200 store options of clothes and accessories, with brands like Michael Kors, Victoria’s Secret and Tommy Hilfiger. It also has several options for restaurants and fast foods, as well as a cinema and a bowling alley for you to have fun.
Despite being a mall, Dolphin Mall is considered by many to be an outlet because of its size, prices and promotions. It even offers discounts for his visitors on his website! To print the most recent coupons he has, just click here on the mall’s official website, scroll down to the “All Sales & Offers” section, and print or save your favorite offers. Within this link you will see that there is also an option to print a voucher (under “Print Voucher”) that you deliver on the day of your visit to the mall, at an information kiosk next to Starbucks, and win a booklet (called by them “passport”) with exclusive discounts.
3) Shopping Aventura Mall Miami
Shopping Aventura Mall Miami is also one of the best options in the city for shopping. This mall does not have promotions as strong as the other two establishments mentioned above, nor discount coupons, but it is one of the most beautiful malls in Miami, and it ends up being a super pleasant walk.
Because it is a more sophisticated mall, it has stores that other Miami outlets and malls do not have, such as Burberry, Diesel and Ferrari, which are one of the most famous brands in the world. The space is huge (it is the largest mall in Miami, and the most beautiful for many people), so reserve good hours to get to know it.
4) Dadeland Mall Miami
The Dadeland Mall Miami Shopping is a good option for those who want to shop with peace of mind, as it is located in the south of Miami, close to Coral Gables.

Shopping at street stores in Miami
