I have turned a bit away from Amazon for running shoes simply because I have found running specialty stores to have better deals. They have smaller inventory and smaller warehouse space than Amazon has so they need to move out the older models of shoes to make room for newer models. This allows them to discount them nicely. For example, I routinely get my shoe of choice – the Asics Kayano line – a model behind and for under $80 from different running stores. I have not seen my size at that price from Amazon ever.
However, this type of sale could work very well for you if your shoe of choice is included in the selection. This selection seems to focus on trail shoes/winter shoes which is a perfect fit (pardon the pun) for this time of year. I have raced many winter races in my Salomon trail shoes (which are available here) for their Gore-Tex outer to protect from the wet. I have also used them for trail races and found them to be excellent. Many of the shoes listed for men and women are at a discount already (before the 25%) so you could really come out ahead.
If you have the Chase Freedom card and have not yet maxed out your bonus for Amazon this quarter, by all means use that to get your 5 points per dollar. If you do not have that card, you can also use your Chase Ink Bold or Plus to purchase Amazon gift cards at Office Max/Depot for 5 points per dollar. Failing that, simply use your main card to make sure you continue to accrue points! 🙂
