Hi everyone, Happy Monday!
I finally got a pair of brown leather boots! I've been wanting to buy some since last fall (no, not 2012, the year before!) and initially had my eye on the "Intyce" by Steve Madden. However, they were a little pricey for me, and almost identical to my black leather boots from Aldo. In September, I found the "Taite" at Aldo and knew they were the ones (I tried them on in-store to ensure proper fit, etc). Originally priced at $150, I decided to wait it out for a sale. Various 10% off or 15% off coupons came up, but it just didn't seem like a good enough deal for me to bite the bullet.
Around Christmastime, I mentioned to T that I really wanted this pair of boots at Aldo and he was sweet enough to give me some money towards them. I placed the order on boxing day (now priced at $90.99) and waited for them to arrive in the new year. About 12 days later, I get an email from Aldo saying they have received my 'return request' for the Taite boots. Panicked, I called Aldo customer service (waited on hold for 20 minutes!) and was told that when I initially placed the order, my size had sold out, but the order went through anyways. The 'return request' was their way of telling me that I wasn't getting the boots & they had refunded my credit card. Meanwhile, as I was on hold, I went to the Aldo website, and saw that Taite was on sale for $75, so I was going to ask for a price adjustment. Customer service gave me an additional 10% for their mistake (Taite was in stock in my size), I was refunded the initial purchase price of $90.99 + tax and the boots arrived 3 days later!
