Reaping the rewards



Strike up the band. I'm a pod-dancing fool today.

Why? My guilt-free new pair shoes.

My footsies thank DSW Rewards for a much needed fall wardrobe update. For anyone unfamiliar with the program, you earn points for every dollar spent -- including shoes on sale. (I shop the sale rack and haven't spent more than $25 on a pair of shoes in a year, but I still manage to earn bonus rewards.) Best of all, it's free and you don't have to open a credit card.

Blackheels_2This weekend, I had two $10 reward certificates burning a hole in my pocket. I needed brown shoes that could work double-time for dressy and casual outfits. I found a lovely pair of camel sling-backs in patent leather that were 50 percent off. Then I knocked off an additional $20, thanks to the rewards program.

Final purchase: $5.32. Less than a meal at Mickey D's!

DSW isn't the only rewards program out there, but I know many will agree it's one of the best. Shout it out: What others are worth joining?
