When you give back this week, you will be rewarded. Laura Thornquist shares today's "Insider Savings" tips.

Let's start with The Ladies Designer Brand Warehouse Spring Sale. The huge clothing sale features over 15,000 items from designers like Sharon Young, City Girl and lots more.

New this year is "Give Back Friends and Family Day." Any non-profit organization you support is invited to shop between 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday and get 10 percent off. What I love most about the sale is the opportunity to stock up on everyday pieces like, jackets, pants, skirts and more from $20 to $60. This year, they have a lot of dresses.

And, it gives you a chance to also pick up extra accents to brighten up your wardrobe. You can find just about everything here at great prices.

If you don't attend the "Give Back Friends and Family Day," the sale starts Thursday and runs through Saturday at the corporate office at 10367 Brockwood Road in Dallas.

Ladies, it's best if you come alone, no men or children under 12 allowed.

Next, there is a chance to donate to the American Red Cross during National Dine Out Week. Simply stop by the American Red Cross donor center at One Medical Parkway in Farmers Branch and make a donation and you will then receive a $25 gift card. 

When you redeem the gift card on the website, they will make an additional donation to the Red Cross. What's great about is that they offer you a chance to eat out at your favorite restaurants at a huge discount. 

There can be some exclusions, so be sure to read the fine print.  National Dine Out week runs through April 29.

On the Border is counting down to Cinco de Mayo with a free coupon each day now through May 5. When you visit the On the Border website, you can click on the tiles to reveal today's free item.

The coupon is only valid the day it is printed.
