*Update: This post is from 2010. Check out 2011 4th of July shoe sales*
It’s 4th of July weekend and time for plenty of fun, but it’s also a great opportunity to save some dough all-American style, especially right now while we’re starting to see big markdowns on summer merchandise. Independence Day sales are literally everywhere and there are definitely some great shoe sales that have already started, so I thought I would round them up into one big list for anyone who might be shoe shopping this weekend. I’ll also be updating this list over the next few days anytime I come across more sales and coupons. So, without further adieu, here’s the rundown of what I’ve seen so far:
American Eagle is having one of their awesome clearance sales right now that also applies to their selection of clearance shoes. You get an extra 30% off automatically at checkout for a limited time, but then you can also apply coupon code 32944527 to get another 20% off (expiration unknown). That makes for some super-low prices on their selection of flats, flat sandals and sneakers, like the AE Grommet Sandal (pictured above) that’s on sale for $19.95 and drops to just $11.17 after the code. Availability can be limited for some styles, so it’s best to shop by size in the top right to narrow it down. Shipping adds $7, but it’s free if you buy 3 or more items until 7/5/10.
Guess.com is also having a sale on a sale and it takes an additional 50% off already-reduced items. Browse their women’s sale shoes and, if you see something you like, you’ll see the price slashed in half at checkout. I like the femininity exuding from the Guess Journ, which features eyelet cutouts and a corset-like lace-up detail on the back. It’s available for $89.99 in black or white, but the price is reduced to $45 after the discount. If you spend $100, get free shipping with coupon code FREESHIP100 for a limited time. The sale expiration is unknown, but it’s likely for the upcoming holiday weekend only.
If you’ve got your mind set on a pair of Chinese Laundry shoes for less, shop Chineselaundry.com and get 30% off any sale shoes when you apply coupon code CL30SALE at checkout. Make a dramatic statement in the Chinese Laundry Slippery Slope, which has a mix of exotic patterns. They’re marked down to $69.99 (regularly $119) in black or brown and, after the code, they’ll be yours for $48.99. The code expires 7/12/10.
80’s Purple offers cutting edge shoe brands like 80%20, Dolce Vita, Industry, Report and more and you can get an additional 25% off your purchase with coupon code fireworks during their Red, White & Purple Sale. The Dolce Vita Niko wedge in black or brown is priced at $172, but it falls to $129 after the code. The sale expires 7/5/10.
Shoemall is having a Fourth of July shoe sale and it takes 20% off your purchase via code JULY4. It applies to regularly-priced items only and shipping is also free. If you’ve had a gold glitter pump on the brain since Sex and the City 2, you might like the Steve Madden Caryssa platform pump. It’s $129.95 before the code and $103.96 after. The coupon expires 7/6/10.
Steve Madden is taking 40% off clearance shoes when you apply coupon code 40CLEARANCE at checkout. Get a nice price on a clog with plenty of edge, the Steven by Steve Madden Durann, which is so on-trend and marked down from $149.95 to $99.99. After the coupon, get them for $59.99 in black, brown or red. The coupon expires 7/11/10.
Koh’s has a new coupon that takes 20% off any purchase, including shoes. Enter TOPSECRET during checkout to get the discount, which you can even apply to Skechers Shape-Ups (just tested it and it worked). The Skechers Shape-Ups Action Packed High-Performance Shoes are on sale for $99.99 (originally $109.95), but they are $79.99 after the code, which expires 7/4/10. Update: This code is now expired, but use code JULYSAVE for 15% off until 7/11/10.
Bloomingdales is having a sale that takes 25% to 40% off select items, including women’s shoes. On top of that, get another 15% off when you use coupon code SAVE15 in the shopping cart. I checked it the sale and there’s definitely plenty of low prices going on, but one in particular is the Corso Como Notable studded wedge. It’s already marked down from $159 to $59.62, but it goes even lower to $50.68 after the coupon, which expires 7/5/10.
