A family member was interested if I knew of any nike discounts going around so I thought I would repost this article because with the military discounts and other discounts you can get around 50% off all nike’s. In november I bought the Nike Cortez Basic Leather shoes for $20. Normally $70 but on clearance for $40, plus all the discounts (25% nike clearance discount, 20% jet cash back, and 10% military discount)
I recently bought some basketball shoes from Nike.com. They were the new Lebron XIII’s. They normally sell for $200+, however they have a couple of the pairs on clearance for $169 and using a couple of the discounts below I was able to get it more than 50% off the clearance price.
I’ll tell you how I got them for around $80
1.) First apply Nike.com promotional codes (use a coupon website like Ebates, RetailMeNot, SlickDeals.net to find current codes). The code I found was 25% off clearance. These codes aren’t always around, usually about once a month though
***This made the shoes $42 cheaper
2.) Use a cash back website (Ebates, TopCashBack.com, Jet.com). I used Jet.com which is giving 20% back on any purchase at Nike.com right now. DiscoverDeals gives like 15% back
***This made the shoes $25 cheaper
3.) Use Nike’s Military Discount. Per Nike’s Website:
“Active, retired and reservist US Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard personnel are eligible to receive a 10% Nike military discount on Nike.com and at US Nike retail stores (excluding Nike Company/Employee Stores).”
To get the discount, call 1-800-344-6453. Tell them you are active military and they will send you a 10% off code to your email. I’m pretty sure you can only apply one coupon code to your order. In my case, I would have had the option to apply the 25% off clearance code or the 10% military discount code. SOLUTION – I recommend doing this: apply your non-military discount code during checkout. Complete check out and then call Nike.com and tell them your order number and they will add the military discount code to your order and credit your credit card back 10%. In my case they credited me back more like 14.5%. I’m not sure why but i’ll take it!! This way you can take advantage of BOTH discounts!
***This saved me an additional $20
The total price for the Shoes came out to be $169-42-25-20 = $82. Still expensive for a pair of shoes but hopefully they last me 5 years like my old pair.
