Yep I tried that. I had an SA buddy try and get told that no discount could apply to EG. They do have nice make-ups, though. There are two shoes there (a tan pebble grain and a dark grey brogue) that I would buy today if the price were reasonable. I just have an extreme allergy to overpaying.
I asked about this in the BB thread and was told that if you order over the phone, they'll apply it to the EG shoes. Haven't tried it, but let me know if it works!
