It was asked in the comments on this post that I explain exactly how to best pricematch shoes.
What’s that? Give you step-by-step instructions on how to get the very best shoe deals? Okay, you twisted my arm.
1) Surf the sale section at Endless.
2) Find yourself some pretty, pretty shoes on sale for a deep discount.
3) Go find those same pretty shoes over at Zappos, if you can, where they will hopefully be full price (or close to it).
4) Confirm that Endless has the size and color you want in stock.
5) Order from Zappos. On the “Order Confirmation” screen, once you have your order number, glance slightly to the right to find the toll-free phone number. Call them up, tell them you just placed and order and would like to do a pricematch.
6) Zappos customer service is the best I’ve ever dealt with, bar none. They will take care of everything on the phone for you. You can place the whole order on the phone, of course, but I find the process much quicker to order online, adjust via phone.
[You can also pricematch with Shoebuy and Shoes.com, but those two require that you mail in for your pricematch, and then process it so slowly you run the risk of the shoes no longer being available on Endless (and therefore ineligible for a pricematch).]
Zappos gives you a 110% price guarantee. So, say you found some shoes originally $145 marked down to $30 at Endless. The end cost to you (because Endless automatically deducts $5) would be $25 shipped at Endless. Order those same shoes from Zappos, and they will cost you $145 less 110% of the difference between $145 and $25 (or 120 x 1.1, which is $132). Your final cost after pricematch in this example is then $145 – $132, so just $13 shipped.
Bottom line: You get the best bargains by finding shoes drastically reduced at Endless, then buying and pricematching them at Zappos. Which means you save money. Which means you can buy more shoes.
