Well, it’s that time again. Time to get ready for back to school. For us, this means going through our bins full of clothes and pulling out stockpiled outfits, jeans, and sweats. It recent years, it’s also meant another trip to the shoe store. Sonny has been growing like a really hungry, talkative weed, and he rarely stays in a pair of shoes for more than 3 months. As you can guess, this eats into our budget like crazy. But we do make sure to find stores that offer great deals.
Right up the street from us is a Famous Footwear. We love to go up there and see what they can offer in terms of savings and deals because we don’t have to waste much gas to do so. They always have a variety of styles and the customer service is fantastic. Did you know that if they are out of a certain shoe that you want, they can have it delivered to your home? Yes! This is helpful when you have an opinionated 7-year-old who has a particular “style” when it comes to footwear, and gets stuck on having a certain shoe.
We also love when they have their BOGO sales. Right now they acutually have a great coupon available: BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon! If you are a rewards member like we are, you get 20% off instead of the 15%. What we love to do is ask Sonny what shoe he likes, and we will get 2 pair: one in his current size and another in the next size up. This usually sets him up for success for the next 6 to 8 months. I also love that even if you use the coupon, you still get your points for the rewards program. You earn 1 point for every dollar you spend, and those points earn you certificates throught the year.
The coupon is good until August 18th, so we’ll be hitting up Famous Footwear this weekend to stock up on some school shoes.
How do you all save when doing your back-to-school shoe shopping? Do you shop at Famous Footwear?
