Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m all about supporting my local running store, but there are just some things that the internet can do for me that my pals at Falls Road Running Store can’t. And that’s sell me my beloved Brooks for a whopping 76.2% off.
I’ve been wearing Brooks Adrenaline GTS 10s for almost two years now. I’m a little in love. The one time I tried a different shoe, I ended up with shin splints that kept me sidelined for the better part of a month. Needless to say, I’m pretty loyal to my brand these days.
I’m loyal to my LRS too, it’s just that they want to charge me $105 every 4-5 months for my prized kicks and my wallet just can’t handle that. So what would any budget-respecting child of the Information Age do? Turn to Google.
The first time I Googled my Adrenalines I found them for $79 + shipping and saved myself almost 20 bucks. Sa-weeet! I nearly cried when yesterday I went back to that same website and they were gone. Back at square one I hit up my trusty Google Shopping search engine a second time and, lo and behold, it turned up an even better deal. I almost didn’t believe it. Sixty…Five…Dollars.
So, of course, I bought two…but not before Googling a coupon code that saved me $6 on shipping at checkout.
Final damage? Two pairs of Brooks Adrenalines (size 10.5–you try finding those in a running store!) for $130 even. I basically bought the second pair for $25 and saved myself $80!
Sorry, FRRS. I still love you…just maybe not as much as I’m loving Google right now. Don’t worry though, I’m sure I’ll make it up to you in April when the spring lines come out. XOXO!
