Zappos launched way back in 1999. The Las Vegas company quickly grew to be the largest online shoe store and was acquired by Amazon in 2009. They’ve got a pretty good app for Windows 8 that allows you to browse their entire collection of footwear, clothing, bags, accessories, home, and more. They’ve also got a new incentive to get you to use their app – free shipping. Details below.
Zappos is one of our favorite sites for getting goods. Just ask Daniel about his experience buying slippers for a cold winter nearly 10 years ago. Here are the categories of goods you get with Zappos:
- Sporting goods
- Baby shop
Basically you can find a huge selection of items to purchase from Zappos. Of course you can drill down to genders within those sections. From there, you’ve got filters to help you find exactly what you want. For example, to find what shoe you want you can change the size, color, width, and more.
And to promote the Windows 8 app, they’re offering free one day shipping for all purchases between now and the end of 2013. That’s right, free one day shipping. It’s Air Shipping, which means next businessday day delivery for locations that get UPS next day service. Not a bad deal though and this makes Zappos an app you need to keep loaded for some holiday shopping.
Now if only we could get a Windows Phone app.
