Here are some tips for scoring great New Balance gear at a fraction of its regular retail price.
1. Online outlet
Joe's New Balance Outlet offers rock-bottom prices on New Balance products. The deepest discounts can be found with the "Daily Deal" shoe offering, which usually showcases a certain type of athletic shoe for about 60% off the retail price. Deals are only offered while stock is available, so don't second-guess those running shoes you see advertised for less than $30.
Rent New Balance gear when traveling — and be rewarded! The Westin hotel chain recently launched a New Balance gear lending program. Guests simply request the gear they need (shirts, shorts, capris, shoes, or socks) when staying in the hotel, and clean gear is delivered to their room for a cost of $5 to use for the duration of their stay. As an added bonus, guests also get a 10 percent off plus free shipping coupon code card to use at NewBalance.com — with no restrictions! You can try before you buy and then go online and get exactly what you want. The code is even valid on big-ticket items and clearance merchandise.
3. Coupon codes
RetailMeNot posts current codes for use online to net percentage-off deals, free shipping and more. Codes are organized from the most current to the least current, so the codes that are near the top of the page are the most likely to be active.
4. Satisfaction guarantee and free return option
If you are unsatisfied with an order placed through NewBalance.com, return it for free. Further, if a product underperforms, contact the company for a resolution through their 100 percent satisfaction guarantee.
5. Sign-up for e-mail updates
Register an e-mail address at NewBalance.com (scroll to the bottom right of the page), and a 15% off coupon code will come your way, along with a newsletter subscription and other periodic deals and announcements.
6. Get cash back through Ebates.com
If you are a current member of Ebates.com, you can receive 2.5 percent cash back at New Balance online and 4 percent cash back at Joe's New Balance Outlet when using their site. And if you are new to Ebates.com, you can earn a $10 gift card with your first $25 purchase through the site.
7. Save on more than just workout clothes
The New Balance GPS and heart monitor watches cost far less than their $200-and-up Garmin competitor. In March, some discontinued $40 insoles were selling for $5 in their outlet stores — cheaper than Dr. Scholl's! Their online "Recently Reduced" pages — like this one — also have a handy "under $25" sort option, to see the real bargains. Don't forget about New Balance's sister company Cobb Hill Shoes. Trendy and comfortable leather sandals, boots and heels can also be found on New Balance’s website, often at discounted prices.
