Up to 80% OFF Chacos for Women and Men at LeftLane Sports PLUS $10 OFF Through Monday

Left Lane Sports daily deal site is running a great Spring kick-off sale on Chaco sandals and athletic shoes through Monday.  This top-of-the-line outdoor gear site is offering a nice selection of Chacos at up to 80% OFF ~ if you’ve shopped Chaco sandals, you know that discount prices are hard to come by. Here’s the scoop on the sale…

Men’s and Women’s Chaco sandals, the comfortable shoes that have become so popular for outdoor enthusiasts, college kids, and comfort seekers alike are on sale (through Monday, March 9) at LeftLaneSports for up to 80% OFF!  

Plus, on top of this savings, get an extra $10 OFF your first purchase of $50 or more (for new members of LeftLane only ~ go here to sign up for free and get the $10 credit).


New to LeftLane Sports?  They are a members-only (joining is free!) daily deal site featuring top outdoor, and sports brands — like Pearl Izumi, Salomon, Marmot, Columbia, Patagonia, and Camelbak — typically 50-80% off retail price (we’ve found them regularly LOTS cheaper than REI and Whole Earth for the same brands). Whether you run, cycle, hike, camp, ride, swim, or just like to take a casual stroll, they’ve got top-of-the-line gear at close-out prices.

Membership is free, and since I invited you, you’ll receive an instant $10 shopping credit (here) towards your first purchase.


Here’s a sample of our bargain finds at the Chaco sale (we counted almost 60 styles from which to choose): :: Women’s Chaco “Tanana” Blue Flip Flops $21.88 (reg. $70)

:: Women’s Chaco “Sleet” Black & Sleet Sandal $44.95 (reg. $75)

https://www.leftlanesports.com/invite/FrugalInFortWorth

Insider tip:  Chaco quantities are limited for this sale and due to the popularity, these will sell out really fast…you will want to hurry if you want to have the best selection of styles and sizes.


…And Here’s the Scoop on LeftLane Sports’ EXTRA $10 Credit Offer For New Members!

It’s a great time to get signed-up for LeftLane Sports daily deals!  When you sign up for the first time, you’ll get $10 credited to your account to use towards any LeftLane Sports  order of $50 or more ~ including these already discounted Chaco Sandals!  It looks like you have 6 months to use the credit before it expires, but other than that, there are no other strings attached (love that!). Do note that the $10 credit is only offered for new account sign-ups and that it is FREE to join.   Go here to sign up for free and get the $10 credit! How to get the Extra $10 OFF LeftLane Sports credit:

  1. Join LeftLane Sports for FREE and get a $10 Credit. Once you are signed up as a new member, a $10 credit will be waiting for you to use on your minimum $50 Purchase.
  2. Find and select the Chaco’s Sale by scrolling through the discount “boutiques” listed (look for the below image).
  3. Make your purchase before Wednesday. There are limited quantities of these sandals available, so I would recommend not waiting too long to make your purchase.  As usual with LeftLane Sports many of the items will sell out fast.
  4. That’s all there is to it!  Easy breezy.  : )
