Everybody needs shoes, right?  I swear my toddler’s feet grow about an inch a month, so I know she always needs new shoes.  As for me, my foot stopped growing long ago, but I still find excuses reasons for new shoes as well!  If you fall into either the need or want new shoes categoy, it is worth checking out the 20x Ultimate Rewards one-day points bonanza at

To make it even better, there are some coupon codes listed on the Ultimate Rewards site that should be eligible to be used in conjunction with the points deal.  Two examples are 15OFF for 15% of your order and FALL2011 that will get you 10% off your order and free shipping.  I did a few test items and it seems that shipping was free already with all of the items I selected, so your best bet is probably the 15OFF coupon. I find prices to be a bit on the high-side without coupons, but with this code the prices seem to come down to what is comparable to most other sites (at least for the shoes I shop for).  If you don’t need shoes right now, they do sell socks, belts, bags, and other accessories as well.

I’m not sure if I am going to buy shoes today or not, but I love the idea of spending $50 on shoes and socks for Little C and coming out with over 1,100 valuable Ultimate Reward points for a purchase I was going to make anyway!

As is usual for this type of deal, you need to shop via the Ultimate Rewards shopping portal to take advantage of this increased points earnings.  Both the Chase Sapphire® Preferred Card and Ink Bold(SM) with Ultimate Rewards give you access to this portal.  In case you are unfamiliar with Ultimate Reward points, they can be transferred 1:1 to Continental/United, Hyatt, Marriott, British Airways, and more.  You can also use them “as cash” to pay for travel or everyday expenses.  Since I have been getting questions about how Ultimate Rewards works, I will devote an entire post to Ultimate Rewards soon. If you need any questions answered in the meantime, just ask.  Time to start some shoe browsing………

  1. do we have to use the sapphire card to actually make the purchase? or can we use any card, as long as we go through the ultimate rewards portal?

  2. @yaychemistry, it was working for me a little bit ago. Maybe give it a few minutes and try again.

    @ekartash, others have reported different cards working, but I have not ever done it myself.

  3. Using my American Express Gold card, i received the proper amount of points for the purchase I made the other day (when it was 10x points). So I’d say it’s pretty safe to use another card!

  4. Hello MP,

    I have been trying to get on my chase account and no luck so far either..I do “need” some boots so im ready to buy from UR Mall! =)

    Btw, have your groupon 20x bonus posted yet? (if you bought that day?) Mine is not even registering on my rewards mall activity…maybe its just me?
