Customers can take advantage of up to 70% off from the best retailers across the country, and manage their payments in four installments without incurring interest.1 A number of new brands partnering with Afterpay in-store will be participating in this season's sales event, offering promotions across e-commerce and their physical locations, including Steve Madden, MAC Cosmetics, Jo Malone London, Aveda, origins, Vera Bradley and more.

We have extended our sale to physical retail, doubled the number of sale days and, most importantly, we have more than doubled the amount of merchants who are offering incredible deals and promotions to their shoppers. We are proud to deliver this incredibly popular event just as retailers welcome their customers back to their stores for Spring shopping."
