I first heard about Robeez shoes from the Baby Bargains book I read while pregnant with the twins and they do have a stellar reputation as makers of children's shoes. Since then, I made it my mission to try and get a pair of Robeez shoes in each size for girls. My price target was less than 20 dollars per pair.
- Availability. Out of all the shoes on the APMA list, Robeez are the easiest to find and the the biggest brand. That size means that discounts are easier to come by
- StrideRite stores: Robeez shoes are made by StrideRite and they have stores in select locations as well as online. The stores usually have a shelf or two of clearance shoes and socks.
- Mailing list: You can save by joining their mailing list to be alerted when they have promotions. I know that at certain times through out the year, they have BOGO sales.
- Receipts: I bought some socks once in a Stride Rite store and noticed that the bottom of the receipt had an offer for me to participate in a short poll and get 5 dollars off my next purchase. Combined with in-store promotions, it was a good deal
- Amazon: Yes I buy shoes for myself and the twins from my favorite online store. Amazon has a very formidable selection of baby shoes. Practically all the brands on the APMA list are available on Amazon. I always check the sales and deals page for additional discounts that are applied to the price on checkout. Ever so often, some third-party sellers on Amazon will offer $20 off a purchase of $60 or more. That's an instant 33 percent off.
- Department stores: End of season sales at Dillards netted me 2 beautiful pairs of Robeez at $9.99 each. That's a hard to beat deal for shoes that cost 3 times that amount at full price. I've also had good picks at Nordstrom Rack.
- Deal-A-Day sites like Zulily come up with major discounts on Robeez and other baby brands. They're free to sign up for
- Ebay: No savings blog post is complete without a nod to ebay. There are a lot of parents like me selling new or like new baby shoes. No fluke. I have 2 pairs of Robeez that were never worn and another 2 pairs that the girls only wore on their birthday. Check out my numbers
