20% OFF Amazon Promo Code for Kids’ Shoes and Clothes — Levis, Miss Me Jeans, New Balance and More

Bookmark and Share

This is a nice deal.  Spend at least $50 on eligible kids’ clothes, shoes & more (from big kids to baby/toddler sizes) and get 20% OFF your total qualifying purchase.  The sale even includes boots, jeans (like Levis & Miss Me), specialized sports & athletic shoes, dressy & casual clothes, jewelry and more sold and shipped by Amazon.

To get the additional 20% discount: purchase items that qualify for the sale (go here), and then at checkout, be sure to use the promo code OFF2SCHL.  The extra discount is added at checkout and is on top of the sale prices you’ll see.

  

There are 1000s of items in the 20% Off sale  – some of the bargains that caught our attention (we’ve pictured some of our favorites) include deals from Miss Me Jeans, Levis, Ariat Boots, Ralph Lauren, Saucony, Asics, Fila, Skechers, New Balance athletic shoes and more!

   

 

We are big fans of buying shoes and clothes from Amazon ~ they carry hard to fit sizes in top brands, prices are usually much lower than anywhere else, and if something doesn’t fit (or you just change your mind), return shipping is FREE on shoe & clothes orders.

 

There are lots of great kids deals to be found with this 20% off  offer.  I hope you find just what you are looking for! : )

P.S.  Don’t forget to use the promo code OFF2SCHL at checkout to get the 20% off.

Enjoy and Share! :)
