In my world, even though I'm not a mommy,
that means it is back to school time.
And back to school time means back to flygirl time.
Act like you don't know what I'm talking about.
It's that time of year where kiddos and adults alike get back in to the swing of things
and nothing helps that more than a new outfit.
And by "new outfit" you know I really mean
NEW SHOES! And they are on sale!
Now. There are lots of places you can buy shoes.
One of my fave places to shop is Famous Footwear.
I had seen, but never gone into one of these stores until last year
when I was getting ready to go cruising.
I really REALLY wanted some cute strappy sandles
that didn't have...shall we call them "inappropriately high" heels on them.
I searched EVERYWHERE.
And finally, I saw the beacon in the night and stopped in a Famous Footwear.
Where has this store been all my life?
I needed one pair of shoes.
Because they had such a huge but EASY to shop selection,
I walked out with 3 pairs of shoes.
The aisles are wide,
the shoes well lit
and I might have spied a pair from the front door
(all the way on the backwall)
that I made a beeline for.
It was super easy to try on a few pairs,
make my selection and head up to pay for them.
Got to the register and somehow managed to make it there with two different sized shoes.
They sent someone back to find another pair of the same size.
While they were looking for that,
my clerk got me signed up for the FREE Rewards Program.
Usually, I pass on these gigs.
I don't need people tracking my information,
I don't need to clutter my wallet (or iphone Keychain ap)
with cards and clubs I'll never use...
I mean really, I just needed shoes for a cruise.
But then they told me the benefits and I was like sign me UP!
I mean really:
You earn 1 point for every $1 you spend in store AND online
(because this mama likes to shop online)
You accumulate points to earn certificates up to $100 a year.
There's a discount offer just for signing up.
And there are other special inside discounts and perks.
On that last one, I can attest to nice birthday discounts,
opportunities to earn double points and lots of really cool promotions just in the knick of time.
Ie, I bought some great boots
(for a trip to DC that turned out to be hotter than hot)
during a special insider discount sale.
All this is to say that Famous Footwear is now my go to shoe store.
No matter how out of season the need,
I have found that instore but especially online,
this is THE PLACE that I can get it found.
Just in time for back to school,
they are having an additional %15 off sale
(20% off if you're a Rewards Program member)
AND when you buy one, you get one half off.
