New, free shoes with rewards points

You've heard of using miles to get free plane tickets or using credit card points to get money back, but how about earning free shoes?

I recently headed to Famous Footwear to return shoes that unfortunately did not fit right. While there I couldn't resist peeking at the shoes they had in stock, especially since clearance was buy on get one 50 percent off.

In my size, I saw black flats with buckles by Dr. Scholls. I had owned the same shoes in metallic silver and after some time wore them out. They were the perfect fit and comfortable.

Now I needed another pair. I found red pointy-toed heels by Life Stride that were a lower heel and padded, making them comfortable. The style was classic, if also a bit safe. They were marked $10, so I figured for $5, how could I go wrong?

I went to check out, happy to be getting two pairs of shoes for $20, when I remembered to check the Famous Footwear app for rewards coupons. Turns out the shoes!


I joined the Famous Footwear rewards program. For every $1 you spend you get 1 point. Every 100 points, you earn a $5 reward. If you spend $200 a year, you become a gold member and get 1.5 points for every $1 spent and free shipping on all online orders.  For more information see:

If you're trying to get deals, every dollar counts.

Do you shop at shoes stores with rewards points? Have you ever gotten shoes for free?
