Maybe he is referring to their buy 4 shirts and get 40% off sale last December. http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/1155081/ Or maybe he mistyped and meant 3 shirts for $150, which hasn't been too uncommon. And then there is the 3 for $135 sale in 2010. http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/expired-deals/1059735/ So many sales, yet so little opportunity for Toronto folk like us.
The sale just passed last month, as did the Amazon sale for firsts.Right now the AE shoe bank has both of the shoes you listed for $200 each I think.Perhaps you can wait until after Christmas for better deals, not sure if any will come up though.
The Park Avenues in black are $264 on Amazon in my size but the duties they charge at checkout are beyond insane.
I'm considering getting seconds for $200 but for only $64 less, I'm not so sure.
I may just have Amazon ship it near the border and then pick it up but I won't be in Buffalo for a few months. Tough tough decisions, what to do what to do..
