Winter is coming. It’s that time of year where you try and hold out hope that the cold will hold off for a few weeks longer, only for the first snow to catch you unprepared and rummaging through your wardrobe for extra layers you haven’t seen since last February.
One annual tradition in the retail space is L.L.Bean selling out all of its ever-popular Bean Boots well before winter hits its peak. We wrote about the phenomenon earlier this year in an attempt to help readers get their boots before backorders began.
While a few colors and sizes are already back ordered, most are still readily available, and even those that are back ordered will get to you before the end of November if you order today.
Important point to note here: While trying to get input the promo code before writing this article up, both myself and a teammate had trouble getting the promo code pop-up window to load. But after switching to Incognito mode, the window and code worked perfectly. I’m guessing it was a problem on our end, but just in case you run into that problem, we wanted to pass that information on. Just make sure your discount is shown on screen like you see below before going through with the purchase.
We don’t know what deals L.L.Bean has planned for Black Friday or Cyber Monday yet, so while it’s possible you might find better deals if you hold out for a few more weeks, I would be surprised if it was a drastic difference — 20% off is a great deal on Bean Boots, and with free shipping, it’s probably best to buy now if you have concerns about ensuring your size is still in stock.
If you’ve yet to get a new pair of winter boots, or fill out your entire winter wardrobe for that matter, it’s a great time to head over to L.L.Bean and stock up. The sale is active now through Tuesday, November 15, but as a point of advice, I’m guessing it’s better to act sooner rather than later if you want to ensure your boots get to your door before the first snowfall.
L.L. Bean Boots, $95.20 (originally $119), available at L.L. Bean. Or check out everything L.L. Bean has to offer here. [Get 20% by using the code “SAVE20” at checkout.]
