Holiday deal... well, maybe not so much.


I know we're all looking for great deals during Christmas and sometimes the holiday rush has us buying things on sale that might not be as good of a deal as we thought, but this one takes the fruitcake.

Today only, you can take advantage of this awesome Schwaggle deal!   For $100 you can own a pair of K-Swiss Ironman Running Shoes, valued at $50.

That's a 100% markup!  Buy! Buy! Buy!

Sadly, I feel like this same tactic is used when signing up for Ironman races. But, I do- so don't consider me a hater. :)  Happy shopping!

(Thanks BDD for the math check-  you are so EPICALLY smart!)

Now that is an EPIC deal, you could "TOTALLY ROCK" those kicks, making every time you wear them an EPIC day, every run will be EPIC as your TOTALLY ROCKING as you pass MINI VANS and CATS on each EPIC run!

ps your math is off

BDD- You kill me. :P

How is my math off? The value is $50. The deal is to buy them for $100. If my blonde math is off, please explain and I'll take down this post before I look completely incompetent.

it looks like they got it backwards, right?? the deal should be $50 and the value should be $100...no? yes?
i saw a killer deal the other day and now i just need to go back and buy it. i wear Saucony and I bought a pair (on sale of course) of Saucony Genesis (bright orange!) a few months ago for $70. I normally won't pay over $50 for running shoes but I loved the color soooo much, I had to have them. I just saw some white/blue one's at Marshall's for $40. I'm going back to get them!! Unless Shwaggle has them for a proper deal and not marked up double!

Christi said...

That is a "Great" deal! NOT~

The post and comments are all hilarious! I do have a pair of those shoes though and I like them :) In case you were wondering.

I don't know I could wear these at any price. I don't like obvious slogans. Like I'd never wear a shirt that said "runner" while running or "hungry" while eating.

I might make an exception for something that said "total jackass" though.
