Suggest you try them on in a brick and mortar store first. I have the Haastings, and after a little darkening with cordovan and brown paste to antique them, they really look good.

They have twice-yearly sales, Fathers day and I think August, but I don't know of anything aside from that. Yeah, their credit card offers nothing interesting--my regular card already gives 1% on all purchases. They also never mail out discount coupons to credit card holders the way Macys does.
