    If you think it’s worth your time, I say go ahead. Just make sure you can return everything.

    In my opinion, your time is probably worth more than that money.

    @MsGinkgo: 

    Wow, that’s a lot of flip flops! 

    I can understand wanting to save $30. That’s a good amount, but there are a few things to consider:

    1) Were the shoes you bought in store on clearance? If so, by the time you return them, they might not take them back, etc. They might have rules on that. I’m not sure.

    2) Is there shipping & how much, if you buy them online?

    If they’ll take them back & there’s free shipping, I’d say go for it, but you might not finod the exact ones online. That might be another problem.

    Did you check with the store if they can do a price match?

    i’d call the store and see if they’ll do a price adjustment for you.

    No need to send them back. Just call and get a price adjustment. Places usually give you 2 weeks for situations like that.

    I’d go in with my receipt and ask if they can honor the now sale.  If not, you will just return all the online ones and then rebuy them at the sale price.
