MARTIN Lewis has revealed how savvy shoppers can get “secret” discounts from Office and Schuh – but you’ll need to be quick.
Both footwear retailers have special websites, separate from their normal online stores, where you can pick up ex-display shoes that have been reduced by as much as 66 per cent.
As these are ex-display models, some will have suffered wear-and-tear and often have minor scuff marks.
However, each website – Office Offcuts and Schuh Imperfects – shows a picture of the exact shoes you’ll get, so you’ll know what you’re buying.
The shoes are “end of line, ex-display and last pairs” so there is only usually one pair per size, meaning stock is extremely limited.
To start browsing, each website gives you to option to search by men's, women's and kids, as well as shoe brand and size.
If you don’t have much luck on your first check, Martin Lewis suggests going back to each website frequently to see what’s on offer.
Among his best finds, the MoneySavingExpert founder spotted Puma Suede trainers reduced from £62 to £21 – a saving of £41 or 66 per cent.
When we checked, The Sun found Adidas Yung-1 trainers reduced from £90 to £44.99, a discount of £45.01 or 50 per cent.
We also saw a pair of Vans Leopard shoes down from £59.99 to £29 – a saving of £33.99 or 51 per cent.
Speaking on This Morning, Martin said: "High street chains Office and Schuh have separate websites with mega reductions on.
"This is ex-display stock so there might be slight wear and tear – it’s a bit of an online jumble sale."
Prices vary depending on how noticeable the flaw is and doesn't include the cost of delivery.
Office customers will pay £3.50 on delivery for orders over £65, while Schuh charges £3 for standard delivery on orders over £25.
But remember – just because something is cheap, it doesn't always mean it's always good deal.
We'd suggest only having a browse if you were planning on buying some new shoes anyway to avoid being swept up by a good discount.
It's also good to shop around and compare prices using PriceSpy before handing over any cash.
