Stride Rite Sale on TotsyAny parent of little ones knows the name Stride Rite, you know how awesome they are, but also how expensive they are.

Well get ready now, because tonight at 9 pm Totsy (a daily deal site for kids deals) is running a special Stride Rite event.  They will have 87 different styles at deeply discounted prices.

Make sure you are registered now, and then be ready at 9 pm to get the best deals in the sizes you need.  The last time there was an event like this they went very fast!

If tonight’s purchase is your first Totsy purchase, you’ll also get FREE Shipping!

One other way to save more:
Spend $45 or more and you’ll get your choice of a subscription to Disney Family Fun or a $10 rebate (I’d take the $10 personally and find a better deal on the magazine later).

      It’s only free shipping if it’s your first Totsy purchase AND you just signed up.  I tried it last week on some cheap umbrellas.  I signed up for Totsy months ago (probably got some credit that I let expire) but never purchased anything.  The shipping charge never came off so I canceled the order.  Shipping was more than the cost of the items!

      • Sunshinebabysite

        * Offer expires 30 days after registration

        • Qponmommaof1

          Does it automatically take it off at check out or do I need a code?  I just registered, but didn’t see anything about the free shipping.

    • Crisco13

      Does anyone know what the discounted prices were like last time?  Are we talking $5 shoes or $25 shoes?  Just wondering if it is worth the trouble…

      • Troop949

        Good question!  Hopefully, someone responds.  Actually, though, $25 isn’t bad for a pair of Stride Rites….not a *great* price, but still a discount. 

      • Danelle

        I just read on a different blog that the prices would be $9-$22.

    • Allison

      Is that 9pm eastern and 8pm central?

      • shelby

        If you look on the website, scroll all the way down until you see the stride rite sale window. There is a clock counting down to the sale time. It should start at 8:00pm central. :)

    • Deedee

      I’ve heard you can get Stride Rites at Marshall’s. Anyone have any experience there?

      • Eliasmorrison

        We’ve found them at Ross but it’s hit or miss. We got them for 12.99. the fit great and look very cute.

      • Kati3878

        I have found “last seasons” Stride Rite shoes at Marshalls. It is hit or miss, but a great deal if you can find them. :)

    • Vickie

      yes eastern or central?

      • abby

        eastern time.  I’m on eastern time and on the website says the sale starts in 6 hrs. and 45 minutes (right now it’s 2:15).

    • Miriamyd

      I placed a totsy order 2 days ago and used the code “back2school” for 10% off.  hopefully its still useful!

      • Bella01

        I used it last night and it still worked.

      Does anybody know when the deal-  Spend $45 or more and you’ll get your choice of a subscription to Disney
      Family Fun or a $10 rebate (I’d take the $10 personally and find a
      better deal on the magazine later)- start to work? I’ve made a purchase recently and didn’t see any offers.

      • Alison V.

        just went to the site and it is in a little line of a blurb across the top of the ads.

        • Dina

          Thank you very much, Alison!

    • Jordan

      whew,  go fast and get it.  several sizes already reserved.  girls shoes $13.50 – $16.50

    • Anonymous

      No free shipping!!  :(

    • Git free shipping and 10% off… got spearys for 8.10 shipped to the door!  Woo hoo!. An agent thing popped up and said click here for 10% off your order.. automatically applied to order!

    • Kati3878

      bummed…site down for maintenance..:(

    • Lindsey_821

      “site down for maintenance”… figures.

    • Sc_redsox

      Site went down while I was trying to checkout!! GRRRR!!! Not happy! Not sure if I’ll get them now or not!

    • Alison V.

      we crashed their site!  lol  9:19pm

      • Alison V.

        well, not so lol!  i kept trying to get my order for 30 minutes and got close once!  nice of them to plan a big one like this after hours where you can only email them with problems.  oh, well, i guess i won’t be getting my deal after all.  i’m going to go spend time with my hubby.

    • Anonymous

      Just snagged a pair for $21.75 w/free shipping, woo hoo!  Site seems to be flooded now, though, so good luck to anyone else trying to shop.

    • Susan

      You’re not kidding they go fast! 10 minutes in and the 3 pairs I wanted were all gone. It would have been nice to know the sizes only went up to 7-8 toddler, because I wasted time looking at girls and she needs a 9; I would have looked at boys and maybe gotten the ones I wanted for my 7W son Oh well. Now it looks like the site is down…

    • Stacee

      Thanks Jenny, now my daughter has cute shoes to go with her clothes. :0)

    • Jenndennmk

      Seems that the site has now crashed :(

    • Lsholland_2000

      System must be bogged down.  I cant get on.  :(

      • Jenndennmk

        very frustrating! I guess we’ll lose whatever we have in our carts since time will run out on them :(

        • Alison V.

          the time on my items keeps refreshing whenever i click on totsy logo and it lets me back into the cart.  of course, i’m lucky whenever i get that far.  i am not going to keep refreshing all night!  lol  i did send an email, who knows how far that will get me.

    • Leesajohns

      Dang!!! Site is still down bummer!!!

    • Mstw

      no luck here either. Says site down. bummer.

    • Jenndennmk

      Lost everything in my cart and can’t get back on :(

    • Alison V.

      wahoo!!!  it only took an hour but my order finally went thru!

      • Mine says “duplicate order detected” but never gave me a confirmation.  Do you think this means it worked?

        • Asangla

          I got the same reply….wondering what I should do next! Any suggestions?

          • Asangla

            Yes!!! I was finally able to place my order. I had to keep refreshing the page.

    • Megan

      I’m getting site down errors too but if I refresh I’m able to get to my cart.  Was going to check out and noticed the order won’t ship until 10/19 – a month from now!!  My child will practically grow out of the shoes by then!

    • Mstw

      Took forever but finally able to check out. Now my patience will cont because it will take forever to ship…Oct. 20. Thank goodness I ordered sizes up & they are for Christmas.  Thanks Jenny!!

    • Couponkitty

      Prices are decent, but I’ve found Stride Rites at Dillards for between $10 & $12 when they have them on clearance.

    • Jfcolt

      Dumb company. If you have all your daily stores set to “open” at once, make sure your servers can handle it. I finally got two pairs in my cart, only to have them dump them back out while I was fighting to look for more. Got them back in my cart and was about to buy them when I noticed that the estimated ship date was 10/21. A month from now??? Sheesh. No, thanks.

      • Megan

        That’s exactly why I didn’t order.  My child will grow out of the shoes by the time I receive them.

    • Susan

      I was FINALLY able to place my order after persisting for over an hour. I could get one of the 3 pairs I liked (probably because I benefitted from other people not being as persistent and then having their orders dropped), but it wouldn’t apply the 10% off “back2school” discount and kept saying the code was already used. Oh well, I still got a cute pair of brown shoes for my little boy for $18! Thanks for the tip about the sale!

    • Anonymous

      I guess I was one of the few lucky ones and was able to place an order with no issues. But I did it right at 9 PM, so that’s probably why.  I think by 9:05 their site crashed.  This is my first order with them, so now my question is how to get the $10 rebate?  I don’t see anything about it in the confirmation email, although it was noted on the site before it crashed…..  

    • JL

      If you live near a stride outlet(or are vacationing near one) thier prices are cheaper and you actually can try them on/check them out. I got two  pair one for now one for latter while on vaction in Gulf Shores.

      • Qponmommaof1

        Thanks for that info.  We have one near us.  I’ll have to check them out!

    • Tfrost99

      It took me about an hour once to get my order through also, but I was able to get 2 pairs of shoes and to get my order to $45 (to qualify for the 10% off) I bought a bib and a pair of leggings from another sale.  The 10% off worked and I got free shipping since I signed up today!

      As for the $10 rebate (instead of the mag), check the “details” link next to the magazine offer verbage at the top of the website.  You have to print and mail in the “opt out of the mag for a $10 rebate instead” form to Disney. hth

      If you were abe to place an order, could you let us know about your experience with the company. I performed a search on the site and saw MANY bad reviews for the company. Complaints were about the poor customer service, long ship times and incomplete orders. I was turned off and decided not to place an order.
      I have to agree with another user, if you have a Stride Rite outlet near you… the prices are just as good (especially when you use a coupon).

      • Claire

        Not sure if you will see this, but it is now October 29.  It took me almost 2 hours to finally get a “confirmation” email to say my order went through (with a correct but no 10% off total of $75 ordered).  The next morning, my credit card called with “potential fraudulent activity.”  My order actually went through a total of 5 times.  I called the company and the woman on the phone was very helpful, said she’d cancel all but the one order for which I had a conf. # and I wouldn’t be charged until they shipped.  She also gave me $5 of credit for the 10% off I didn’t get (not quite the same, but whatever)  About a week ago, received my shoes, but only 4 of the 5 “confirmed” pairs were sent.  My credit card was charged $55 (correct for the shoes I got).

        Then TODAY, I got two more boxes in the mail.  There were 2 or 3 pairs of shoes in each box (identical to the ones I already received and identical to each other).  My credit card has been charged two more times for $75.  I would call on Monday, but with $75 charged (twice) I assume more boxes will arrive in the mail.  I’ll be calling to demand they pay for the return shipping, and cancel the charges.  Overall, happy with the shoes, and the prices.  NOT happy with the process and won’t do it again.

    • Summer

      I’m very disappointed in this deal. Outlet store or even regular retailer is cheaper. They often send out great coupons. 

    • 2gatorgrads

      Not impressed.  Just went on this morning & was told in a pop-up “chat” window that I would receive an extra 10% off my order; it never actually was applied to my order.  You only have 15 min. to shop & check-out or you lose everything.  A call to customer svc ended with them agreeing to credit my card back the 10%, but not until after I received the items (Oct 20th!) & after I call them back at that time & request a credit.  Seems a little shady, if you ask me.

    • Kikercasey

      I had trouble but finally got through and got three pairs of shoes for $46 after the 10% off. Then I will send in the rebate form to get $10 back. I also got free shipping. Overall I will have three pairs of shoes for $12 each. That is the best I have done on brand new stride rites so far. I know the shipping takes a while but I bought sizes up so no big deal.

    • Asangla

      I can’t seem to find the $10 rebate form. the only form I can see is the Family Fun subscription form. Is it the same form because I don’t see any option letting me request the rebate instead of the magazine. Thanks.

    • I don’t know if anyone else will look at this post, but the items I purchased and were charged for have mysteriously vanished from my credit card statement. They were there yesterday, but not today. I remember reading something weird about them “holding” the funds, then charging it after they get the merchandise from the direct buy after the sale is over. Just wondering if this happened to anyone else? I’m making a mindful note not to overspend my account and acting like i’m still less of the $32 I spent. Just a heads up for everyone else. (also if you didn’t get the 10 % and you decide to buy something soon, there is a promo code BACK2SCHOOL – you can only use one promo code for percentage off per order.)
