Yesterday Josh and I made some stops at a few different stores to look for something for Caleb's upcoming birthday. We ended up at K-Mart, and since the item we were looking for was the same price everywhere, that's where we bought it.
While we were there, I said, "Let's stop by the shoes. I want to see if they have any deals on tennis shoes in Sarah's size."
I glanced through a few pairs, and then these caught my eye:
Athletech Girl's Peggy - Silver
There was only one pair in her size, so I picked up the shoes and started looking at them closer. For one thing, I could not find a price tag, and the box did not have a lid. I turned the shoes upside down to look at the bottom, and to my surprise they had obviously been worn. I kept thinking, "Should I even bother finding out the price on these? Should I try to get a major discount since there is visible wear?" They looked perfect other than a bit of discoloring on the bottom, which obviously wouldn't be seen as Sarah would walk around in them.
I took them to the customer service desk, and I explained that I liked these shoes, but I could not find the price AND I felt there should be a substantial price break considering the wear on the bottom.
They rang up as $9.99 - already marked down from $14.99. The lady at the desk said, "We'll make these $4.99. Do you want them at that price?"
Yep. I sure did.
So my little girl will be wearing her $4.99 shoes proudly. She loved them when I showed them to her.
And I loved that I didn't spend much on them!
What sort of fun deals have you found lately?
