Billy Reid family & friends sale, 25 % off', use code family25.
christy sole is no improvement on snow/ice unfortunately...
agreed, christy's are downright lethal on ice, esp once they have some wear on them.
The only one of those that looks decent for winter is the Mountain Trail Holladay with the lug sole.
The rest are really just built for comfort/fashion.
Read a few pgs back that someone in the US has been hit with duties by End. Really tempted to use that code, but i don't want to pay duties. Anyone else have a problem with this?
It's not really a substantial discount for anything less than $200. The discount pretty much becomes null after shipping at that point. And anything more expensive and you're possibly looking at duties and fees, as was previously mentioned.
At any rate, I once bought a wallet on discount for $115, or $130 after shipping. Didn't get with by duties or fees. So it could be any factor...weight, order total, type of item ordered. I really have no clue.
Yeah I have heard horror stories about Ends custom declarations. They declare the full value, even if you buy at a discount. They will also include shipping fees even if you get free shipping.
See, I read that as "fuck you customer, really just fuck you."
Paying customs sucks, but no way I would read it that way. At the end of the day, no pun intended, they are a business and take a risk by lying on a customs form. How much risk I don't know because I don't know how much it's enforced, but I wouldn't say they're saying "fuck you customer" because they're following the law.
Well 15% is 15%. Agreed on it being cancelled out by shipping costs, but you could also just say it covers shipping. Also, you get VAT subtracted and when you combine the two you likely more often than not save. Of course the more you spend the more worthwhile it is. At the end of the day though you just have to do some competitive shopping.
I got hit with them with my only ever End order last month. $30 on about a $325 purchase. While I'm not thrilled, I got sale items at 20% off the sale price with a code and 20% off for VAT being excluded. I saved at $60 per pair of shoes by ordering them from End as opposed to getting from another store I won't name, and that was after customs and ordering them from England as opposed to ordering them here in the States.
How would they be lying if they put the declared value as the value you actually paid? And throwing in shipping fees when you didn't pay for shipping? Nobody would complain if that was the case.
It's lying when they say the value of something is $350 when I paid $200 for it.
My mistake on the customs portion of my post. I didn't read the post jay made clearly.
any sales? fuuuuckck
Topman sale for cheap crap just started.
From what I read, I'll probably just not order from End, so I can just avoid any fees that may come along with my order. Thanks for the input guys!
