This post is shopping related, not travel related. But, if I could travel, I’d probably bring these shoes along with me.
I happened to look on the Cole Haan website and saw some beautiful $150 sandals on sale for $30 and $40. I jumped because I already owned one of the styles (I bought them last year for much more) and liked them so much, I thought I’d buy another pair.
I decided to buy one pair of the ZERØGRAND Criss Cross Sandal (in gold) and another pair of the ZERØGRAND Global Double Band Sandal (in silver)(note: Cole Haan’s ZERØGRAND collection is known for comfort).
Now comes the stacking of discounts. This is like when the stars align, and you can use multiple discounts at once.
First, I noticed that there was a 20% statement credit Amex Offer on my Platinum American Express card.
Second, before making any purchase, I always check the cash-back portals. First, I go to cashbackmonitor which shows me all of the mile, point and cashback options. Topcashback is offering 10% cash back for Cole Haan purchases. On top of that, Topcashback also has a $2.50 cashback offer if you make any purchase through the portal of at least $10.
So far so good, right?
I began with the Topcashback portal and it took me to the Cole Haan website.
Guess what? On the Cole Haan website, there was a pop-up offer of 10% for a first purchase if you sign up for emails. I signed up and received a code for 10% off my purchase.
Price of 2 pairs sandals: $60.00 (free shipping)
10% coupon from Cole Haan- $6.00
Paid $54 with my American Express Card
I will receive a statement credit of $10.80 from Amex (20% of purchase)
I will receive cashback from Topcashback in the amount of $5.40 and $2.50.
Final cost of the two $150 Cole Haan sandals:
$60.00 -$6 = $54
$54 – 10.80 -5.40 – 2.50 = $35.30
That’s $17.65 per pair!!
Wow! Now if only I had somewhere to wear them!
If you’ve never used Topcashback, it would be greatly appreciated if you used my REFERRAL LINK to sign up.
