[Running Room] Running Room: 15% Off Coupon

More offers from Running Room
My wife got an email for 15% at the Running Room.
Expires November 29th.

Although the coupon says "cannot be used in conjunction with other discounts" the email says that it can be.

I will post the text later as I don't have the email yet.
Edit: Here is the text of the email regarding the included items:

"Year End 15% OFF Blowout Sale in on until November 29th. Just a reminder that you must bring in the 15% off coupon to take advantage of the current discount on everything except nutrition and electronics. Shoes that are already on sale are still discounted, so it's like saving twice."

Here is the coupon:

vs the golfer who spends $100's on a driver, or the rock climber on a harness, or the fisherman on a reel, or the snowboarder on a board, or the ........

Nothing hardcore about it - each to their own.

I'm just saying but go run with them and you know what I mean. I met this guy there which spent over $1,000 on his gear at the Coquitlam branch...

I just think that's little too much...I usually just get my arse to the park jog a few round at a pace I'm comfortable with and done. :)

Unfortunately, 15% isn't much of a discount. Most footwear in Canada is way overpriced. For eg:

The Nike LunarGlide+ at Sportcheck $150. (a "premium" shoe, so it doesn't qualify for sale discounts)

RRSP in the US $100

I picked them up at soccer.com for $59.99, plus shipping, taxes and duty: Under $90 CDN. And they have a USPS shipping option.

Also, the colourway shown on soccer.com is wrong, it's actually navy blue trim like the zappos pair shown.

Yep. Bought an Asics Kinetic for USD $80. And I saw that on sales in Running room for $160 from $180 (something like that,… don’t quite remember the number).

The discount isn't a super deal but good for someone in the market.

If you are quoting shoe prices then you should include your shipping, duty, and exchange costs to be fair.

I had checked around and found that it wasn't a great savings ordering from the states for running shoes.....and I order lots of stuff from the states.

I am reluctant to order shoes unless I am they are a model and size that I know will fit.

And if someone does want to venture into a price comparison then you can find me a pair of Asics Gel Nimbus 11's in 10.5 and see what shakes out.

See my post above. I saved $60 plus tax after shipping, taxes, duty. You have to do some work, but it's usually worth it.

Maybe if you are looking for a closeout or old model or odd size.

Here is the Asics at Zappos for $125 USD
http://www.zappos.com/asics-gel-nimbus- ... liant-blue

I know that shoe is $160-$180 ish at the RR. I will find out this weekend.
So with the discount I don't think that is worth it to order that one from the states.

$140 to $160 shipped from ebay...

http://clothing.shop.ebay.ca/Mens-Shoes ... 86.c0.m282

as opposed to $190 plus tax at Sportcheck

http://www.sportchek.ca/product/index.j ... Id=3798784

I agree about the fit and sizing. It's not worth it unless you are certain.

Zappos is crap for shipping to Canada. I belive they DO NOT ship USPS, so it's not worth it. If on the other hand you have a shipping address is the States, then yes.

That price is independent of shipping - that is just the price of the shoe.

I do have an address in the states and shoes will be probably $15-$20 USD just to ship out of there.

If you can't use the coupon then move along....nothing to see here.

:rolleyes: Enjoy your tax-saving event. And when you're out for a run tonight with you RR pack, try to share the path with independent runners who don't need a support group to get a run in.

I am an independant - but as such I still need to buy shoes.

In general, the prices at RR are way higher than elsewhere.
You have to be hardcore to support their "course".
I do appreciate their effort to promote running as a life style.

whoa what's with the anti-running sentiment in here? while my sports of choice are running and basketball, my brother prefers snowboarding and golf. All those cost money, but I'm pretty sure he spends a lot more than me

anyways, just a reminder that sportinglife.ca has their 10% off first orders, and because some of their prices are better than RR's it ends up being less (+ free shipping on orders >$100)

Seriously? Unnecessary. The Learn To Run program has helped me get started on a path to better health. Don't knock a program that encourages people to get active. I'm only 8 weeks in and down 20 pounds because of it.

Well, speaking as a runner who averages a 10k run 5-6 days a week, you do appreciate investing in good equipment ;) Perhaps not that high, but I do run with the Nike+ system myself, with the added watch remote.

I learned from painful experience that it's best not to skip on footwear, when your legs take a pounding every day ;)

All the power to you. As an independent runner who runs 5-6 days a week, I usually come face to face with your RR packs and have to battle for a space on the sidewalk going the opposite direction. Maybe your group is different and doesn't think that its ok to run 3 across a path. I doubt it though. So yes, seriously, get some running etiquette RR packs.
