Cheap SHOES??

I love getting deals.  And I love shoes. One thing we all have to have is shoes.  And as any of you parents out there know, kids will outgrow shoes a few times throughout the school year, and shoes aren’t cheap (my preschooler’s shoes at Target are now creeping into the over $20 range now!)  This year I figured out how to get shoes at a really inexpensive price that has saved my family beaucoup moolah.

For back-to-school shoe shopping, I went to Shoe Carnival. They have a pretty good selection of athletic shoes, sandals, slides, whatever we need for school and beyond.

Here’s what I did: I signed up for their Shoe Perks membership.  With that, I get 1 point for every $1 I spend (points never expire). When I earn 200 points, they send me a $10 certificate! Well…did I mention we did back-to-school shoe shopping there? With 3 kids, we pretty much needed to get 2 pair of shoes per kid, and then my husband and I got a pair each.  They usually do a BOGO 1/2 OFF sale before school starts back, so we went there for that sale.  And much to our surprise, the “buy one” shoes are usually on a special sale as well!

SO we bought 4 shoes (all of which happened to be on sale) and got the other 4 shoes for half-price. While in the store, I checked the internet to see if we were getting the best deals, and we certainly were, so off to the register we went.  I told them we were a Shoe Perks member, then they sent us over to spin this big wheel full of discounts.  We spun and got $4 off our purchase (woohoo!  Bonus!).

I soon got an email saying I had earned a $10 rewards certificate from my Shoe Perks points!   I waited and watched the emails that kept coming in from Shoe Carnival, and I saw one that said they would give an extra 30% off my purchase.  My daughter’s Nike slides had started to rip a little, so I went online to their website, clicked my Ebates button to get 3% back off my purchase, ordered the slides, applied my $10 reward, got free shipping because I’m a Shoe Perks member, and my grand total for the shoes was $8.00! Voila! Cheap shoes!  Plus I’ll get $0.25 back through my Ebates (more on Ebates another day)!

I have another $10 reward sitting in my account waiting for the next child who says, “Mama, my shoes are getting tight…”
