Confession: I’ve been on the hunt for a pair of colorful New Balance sneakers for weeks now. Yes, I know they’re a total throwback, but who cares–I want a pair. So like any savvy shopper, I went straight to Zappos aka shoe heaven. Obviously, I found tons of options but none on sale. What the heck? So for curiosity sake, I checked Zappos’ sister site, 6pm and wouldn’t you know the same exact sneakers I had in my cart at Zappos were cheaper at 6pm. Literally, the same exact pair!

So I had to investigate. If these two site are affiliated, why are the exact items different prices? My guess is that it has something to do with 6pm being a discount site, but if the same sneakers are on sale at Zappos, shouldn’t they be the same price they’re being sold for at 6pm? Turns out, many items are cheaper at 6pm than at Zappos, so word to the wise: before you ever buy anything from Zappos, check first!

Click though the slideshow to see just a few examples  products that are cheaper at 6pm.

UPDATE: This is why we love Zappos. They saw this post and got back to us! According to their team, the benefits of shopping through Zappos include quick free shipping (next business day shipping on apparel), free returns for a year with free return shipping and outstanding customer service available 24 hours a day–365 days a year.

So when choosing where to shop, it really depends what you’re looking for. Thanks for the insight, Zappos! And way to put that top-notch customer service into practice!
