During the Sale
How do I receive a discount during the sale?
All shoes will be individually reduced in price on our website. Simply add the product to your cart and proceed to check-out. Happy shopping! There is NO discount code to further reduce items, the sale is NOT in conjunction with any other offer.
I can't see sale prices?
Oh no! Please try a different browser or changing your device, alternatively, shop in incognito mode.
Will stock be replenished before the sale? Can I pre-order an item at the sale price?
Unfortunately, not. The sale is only while current stock lasts.
Will there be a wait time?
Maybe. To manage the traffic on our website (and offer the best possible online experience!), we’ve limited the number of people on the website at one time. You may be placed in a virtual queue, with a wait time of around 1-2 minutes. You'll be shopping in no time!
I can’t get through on your phone line.
Online sales are a busy time at Bared. You can chat with us Live! Look for the blue bubble on our website and we will get back to you ASAP. Alternatively, you can select to receive a callback and one of our team members will return your call as soon as they are available (this will save you waiting on the phone) or you can leave us a voicemail, and we’ll do our best to get back to you as soon as we can. We will return your voice message by the end of business each day.Alternatively, we have our own Virtual Assistant who may have the answers you are looking for! You can access it via the blue live chat bubble.
I'm unsure of my size, how do I determine what size to purchase?
If you're unsure about sizing, please refer to our Size Chart. You can also filter by size, colours, features and price under each category. It might be worth taking an inventory of your shoe wardrobe and figuring out your average European size! We always recommend you order your usual size.
If you’re still unsure, print out the Bared Measuring Guide to measure your size more accurately. Alternatively, chat with us on Live Chat and we can assist you with this.
Can I put something on hold?
We are unable to hold, place items on layby or transfer items between stores during sale periods.
How do I use my store credit or gift voucher during the promotion?
To use your store credit or gift voucher online, add the shoes to your cart as normal and proceed to checkout. From there, add your store credit or voucher code in the space provided on the right. Click apply to apply your credit/voucher code.
Ensure you are entering it in the final stage of checkout where it states 'discount code, gift card' not the section that simply states 'discount code' in your bag/cart.
If your gift voucher code still doesn’t work, please chat with us live or request your gift voucher code via the Bared Virtual Assistant located in the blue bubble. If you’re concerned your size may sell out, we suggest purchasing the shoes and letting us know that you have a voucher in the notes section at checkout. We will then apply your voucher to your purchase, and refund the amount you have overpaid on your credit card or PayPal account.
Can I use two gift vouchers for one purchase?
You sure can! Simply add one code, click apply, add the second code and click apply again! This will apply both your vouchers to your order. Ensure you are entering it in the final stage of checkout where it states 'discount code/gift card' not the section that simply states 'discount code' in your bag/cart.
Can you send me some extra shoes to try?
Unfortunately, we are unable to send out additional shoes to try during the sale period.
If the shoes you order don’t fit or you don’t like them, we are more than happy to facilitate a return once the sale is over.
If you’re in Australia, you can arrange a size swap or create your own returns label to return your unwanted shoes for a store credit. Simply visit Returns & Exchanges for more information.
