There are tons of sales throughout the entire year. I work at Aéropostale so I can attest to that. We usually run a friends and family deal (30% off entire order i.e. employee discount) twice a year, we've been running off and on an additional 30% off clearance, BOGO jeans, camis, t-shirts, etc., and lots of things 50% off or more. There are lots of great deals, you just have to stay in the know!
