Sears currently is having a great sales on boots, but now through 1/7/12 you can you can get an additional 20% off and free shipping on orders over $15 using the promotion code NEWYEAR at checkout (is good for shoes and work boots also).
If you are an Ebates you can also earn 6% cash back.
I purchased the "Kylie" boots (pictured left) priced at $24.99 for $19.99 after discount (with taxes total of $21.39).
Emilia boot in black, taupe,brown, blue and green for the same price as the above after the discount.
Steel Toe Men's Boot on sale for as low as $34.98 (pictured left - Roebucks Great Price Men's 6in. Soft Toe Boot) which would be under $30 after discount, including taxes.
Having steel toed boots can mean the difference in keeping your toes if you work in an industrial environment.
If you order after 1/7/12, they still have some great deals and free ship to store option up until the end of 2015.
