    Zappos, obviously, is like next day lol.

    But I found a shoe cheaper on Shoebuy by 10 bucks...

    Do they ship as quickly as Zappos? Zappos has spoiled me with their shipping....[​IMG]

    I've ordered a few pairs of red wings from shoebuy, and I usually had to wait at least a week. Also, try the small q thread next time...

    It will take a week but that's not the real problem. If you return them it will take 1-2 weeks for the credit back to your account.

    $10 bucks is not worth the wait. $50 makes it worth consideration. Also, know that ShoeBuy does not stock anything (at least that is my impression, as my Mulholland Bros. bag shipped directly from the manufacturer). Also ShoeBuy's customer service is not very accomodating if you want to change from UPS Ground to a more expedited level of shipping.

    $ 10 million is not worth the wait. $ 50 is worth considering. Shoebuy does not even know what physics (at least my impression is that my bag Mulholland Bros. directly from the manufacturer). Shoebuy is not very customer service if you want to switch to a faster shipping UPS Ground.

    Do this:
    1. Buy shoes from zappos
    2. Buy shoes from shoebuy
    3. shoes from zappos arrive, wear them but keep the box
    4. shoes from shoebuy arrive, put them in zappos box
    5. return shoes to zappos w/ free shipping

    in the end, you spend $50 for the shoes and still get zappos shipping

    I've ordered shoes in the afternoon, and they were on my doorstep the next day. Shoebuy is much slower, and they use standard shipping. Took me a week to get my shoes.

    Zappos rules the universe of customer satisfaction.........It is what they specialize in..... even before shoes or their other products, they are seeking to make you happy as a consumer.

    Instead of spending major bucks on advertising, they put that money towards giving most customers free shipping upgrades, mostly overnight - and, in doing so, get their advertising thru satisfied customer's word of mouth.

    They make shoebuying online totally painless and satisfying. If you spend a bit more....so be it.

    If you are interested, the CEO of zappos has a book out ....I believe it is called "Delivering Happiness"...... interesting read.

    Zappos is so fast, they sent me my shoes before I ordered them.
