Make the Switch

Spring Cleaning has a new look!

What is make the switch?

Be Bold! Be Brave! And don't let your earrings weigh you down! Make the switch to Nickel & Suede and discover why so many of our customers call these lightweight, statement earrings life-changing.

Send your pre-loved statement earrings (yes, even your vintage N&S), and we will give you $5 in product credit for every pair of earrings. You can receive up to $35 product credit towards new N&S.

But there's more! Every gently-used, professional pair of earrings received will be donated to Dress for Success Kansas City. This incredible organization empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools.

What happened to Spring Cleaning?

Spring Cleaning was originally scheduled for April 2020, however, a global pandemic had other plans for us. Our community of Nickel & Suede BFF’s really stepped up to support each other this year. We want to show our gratitude by expanding the campaign to include ALL statement earrings so more people can participate. Make the Switch is not only our way of saying thank you to our existing community, but also a reason for new customers to discover why Nickel & Suede is different. Life can be heavy, but your earrings don’t have to be!

When are the campaign dates?

August 1, 2020 through August 14, 2020.

**Please note any packages POSTMARKED AFTER August 14, 2020 will not be eligible for product credit.**

Please do not reach out to Customer Service before the 3-day delivery window as we will not have an update for you. We are working as fast as we can while taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our staff.

Can I go to the Dallas or Kansas City Stores instead of shipping my earrings?

Yes! Simply fill out the form online, print out your email confirmation, and bring it with you to the stores. Our Stylists will accept your earring donations. You can use your product credit right away, in store. Any unused credit will be added to a gift card for later use.

How do I access my online store credit?

You must have a account to receive product credit. Once the product credit has been applied, and you have been notified via email, simply log onto your account on to access your credit. It will automatically apply to your cart once you have placed items in the cart. The credit can be used for product and/or shipping, but you are responsible for any taxes.

Can I send more than one package for product credit?

You are welcome to send more than one package to Nickel & Suede HQ, however, we cannot guarantee both packages will be processed at the same time. Please note we can only issue $35 maximum product credit per customer so if additional packages arrive and you have already been issued the maximum credit, we cannot issue additional product credit. We are happy to process the additional packages for donation to Dress For Success Kansas City.

IF I send in more items than I stated on my form, will I receive additional product credit?

Unfortunately, the form must match the number of earrings to receive product credit.


If you have not received an email confirmation within 24 hours of form submission, please check your junk/spam folder in your email inbox before reaching out to customer service. The email subject line will be "Make The Switch Form Submission Received."  


Unfortunately, you must include the printed email confirmation in your envelope/package or bring it with you to one of our retail locations to receive product credit. 

Where are the donations going?

We are excited to partner with Dress For Success Kansas City this year for Make The Switch. For every gently used, nearly new professional pair of earrings that we receive, we will donate them to Dress for Success Kansas City. Dress for Success is a charitable organization focused on empowering women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire, and development tools.
