Stretching Your Dollar: Searching online for shoe bargains

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - If you are looking for a very specific shoe, you no longer have to tire out your feet at the mall on the hunt.

We found a web site that does all the searching for you and it's called Myshoes.com. 

The web site gets all the details of what your looking for -- from style, color, even heel size.  It will find all the online stores that offer that shoe or something comparable.  The site works in conjunction with several other sites to add to your savings.

I met up with Erica Morris who traveled all the way from Columbia, South Carolina, looking for shoes that she still had not found at North Lake Mall in north Charlotte. 

"I actually want a pair of Jack Rogers flat sandals in platinum," Morris said.  "I think they have them at SouthPark Mall, I'm heading over there now."

I entered as much information as I could into the web site to see what popped from Morris' list and I was amazed at the spread. 

For the signature flat Jack Rogers, I found some sites selling them for as little as $67.  Myshoes.com also narrowed down which stores would offer free shipping.

Morris did find one item she was looking for -- a Northface cozy winter jacket.

Malls are also getting in on the online deals.  For example, Northlake Mall offers coupons to people who register online.  At Shopnorthlake.com they get a customer's profile and alert them to deals, sales, even promotional codes for savings.

So shop wisely, get what you want, and save.
