I was in desperate need for new tennis shoes. We have been working out almost daily and my trusty shoes were really starting to get worn out. I have small feet, between size 5 and 6. So, finding tennis shoes can really be a challenge (well, any shoes for that matter). Plus I have some sensitivity from old injuries that I forget about until I get new shoes and have to break my feet in (not the shoes, my feet).
I found a pair of Nikes at Kohls a couple weeks ago that were size 6 and fit really well. Nike tends to be my go-to for tennis shoes. But they were $40 on sale (originally $60), but still more than I wanted to spend. I had just purchased some really cheap items from kohls.com with a free shipping code and 20 percent off. So I went home and bought the shoes online for $32 after the 20 percent off. Ah, a much better price. I know they will last a while, but I just can't spend a lot on anything anymore.
Last week I got an e-mail saying that my order was cancelled because they didn't have my size. I was so disappointed. Typical, I thought. My size is hard to come by. I called Kohl's customer service, and they told me they would honor the online price in the store. I was shocked because we are finding that often stores won't match online prices (Wal-Mart won't). I went to the Kohl's last night and hoped they would have my size. I found the shoes in my size, and the checkout at the customer service was simple. No questions or auguring -- they just honored the price. Hooray!
