Shoes & Sales

Last week I told you my lovely & entertaining story of how I Traded a shoe for a Weemobile. That trade left me desperately needing new shoes for Baby Dear.

These were her last pair of shoes from Darling Shoes. They were originally $8.00... on sale for $5.00... and I had a 75% off coupon code. Who can beat a pair of shoes for $1.25? In case you're interested, right now they have 2 coupon codes going on... 50% off all shoes with coupon code FIFTY. And you can combine that code with code EASTER for an additional 20% off select shoes. They also have flat rate shipping of $5.99 no matter how many pairs you buy.



At the time that I bought those shoes, I also bought these to go with Baby Dear's birthday dress. They were originally $16.95... on clearance for $3.95... and I had that 75% off coupon code... bringing them to a whopping $0.99!

Before those 2 pair of shoes, Baby Dear had a pair from Stride Rite. Those cost us not one single cent, as they sent me a coupon for her first pair of shoes for free!

For our latest quest for shoes I started my shopping at Stride Rite, but their prices were alittle higher than I was willing to pay. I fell in love with one pair of shoes for Baby Dear, but they were priced at $45.00! I don't know who wants to throw down $45 for shoes that their kid will wear for a few months at most, but it's certainly not me.



In perfect timing, I received the AAA magazine in the mail, since I am a AAA member. Now, AAA has all kinds of benefits, not just the obvious ones for your vehicle. They also offer loads of discounts at many retailers, among other things. In their magazine they advertised that all AAA members could get 20% off at Payless ShoeSource© through 3/31/07. They also reminded me that AAA members get 10% off the rest of the year. All you had to do was print out a coupon from their site. Easy enough.

Baby Dear ended up with two new pairs of shoes for $18 and change... less than 1/2 the cost of 1 pair at Stride Rite. Not bad at all. And they are really cute too!

First pair... (they say LOVE in pink multicolor stitching) Regularly $9.99... only $7.99 with coupon!Second pair... (These aren't the exact ones, but they are close enough. Baby Dear's are all pink.) Regularly $12.99... only $10.39! Love em!

If you're looking for shoes, I'd definitely check out Payless ShoeSource©. They have tons of great deals... they are famous for their buy 1 get 1 at 1/2 off sale. I wouldn't buy shoes from there that you really wanted to last a long time, but they are great for kids shoes and I looove to get my sandals there because they have some really cute and trendy styles.

Right now at Payless you can get free shipping with a $4o purchase. Today only use online coupon code PSS5OFF50 for $5.00 off your $50 purchase. Until 6/30/07 you can use online coupon code 20050 for $2.00 off $9.99.
