Today is the day! I am an ambassador for KindRunner and today you can finally see what KindRunner is all about! KindRunner is a new and exciting shoe buying experience. If you are like me, you probably do extensive research on the shoes you want to purchase, visit multiple stores, and end up buying them online at a discounted rate. Now, you do not have to do all of that work! KindRunner will have the expert analysis, reviews, and top-notch selection for you shoe selection needs at a reasonable and competitive cost. You will get these benefits while also significantly reducing your carbon footprint by recycling your old shoes! The shipping of your returned shoes, as well as your purchased shoes is always free! In addition, there are several features at KindRunner that you will not find anywhere else. Let’s explore some of the KindRunner features.
Free 3 Way Shipping: This is a very simple concept. You get free shipping on all purchases, you get free shipping on any return for any reason, and you get free shipping on any shoe that you donate to KindRunner. Your donated shoes will then be re-purposed to Soles 4 Souls or The More Foundation Group. This is a win, win, win, win situation!
Confident Runner Pricing: This will be an option at checkout for those of us that are confident that we know what product that we want. In this option you will waive your free return shipping (because you know the product that you need and will not be making a return) and in turn, you get a discounted price on your item. Your shipping is still free, as is your donated shoes shipping, but by saving KindRunner the postage for return shipping that would not be used, you get your shoes below retail price!
Kindness Cash Rewards Program (KCR): This is the program in which you get paid to donate your old shoes, thus eliminating them from landfills and the 90-100 year wait for them to begin to decompose. Credit that is earned in this program can be applied to anything on the website, so if you have all the shoes you need for now, you can buy a watch or another accessory with the credit. KCR are available to anyone that purchases shoes at KindRunner. Once you receive your new shoes, you have the option to place your old and worn out shoes in the box and affix the pre-paid return label. Once your old shoes are received at KindRunner, your label will be scanned and the KCR will be placed into your KindRunner account. Each return label, regardless of the amount of shoes within (1 minimum obviously) is worth $10 per purchased shoe! So if you buy five pairs of shoes and return one pair of old shoes, you would get $50 KCR! KCR is goof for any item on the site and will never expire!
Expert Product Reviews: There have been a few floating around the KindRunner YouTube page, but everything sold on the site will come with an expert product review video on the same page in which the product is listed. This will be very beneficial when trying to decide between two pairs of shoes or it a watch is worth the purchase price. Reviews are conducted by various individuals that have worked in the running industry for numerous years as shoe reps, store owners, or expert shoe fitters at one of the oldest shoe stores in America. This knowledge and expertise helps bring you the feel and knowledge of you local specialty shop to your home computer (or smartphone or any other web enabled device)!
Easy 365 Returns: If you buy it at KindRunner, you are guaranteed 365 days to return the product provided that it is in its original packaging and in its original condition. If you get injured and cannot use the shoe, return it with zero cost and hassle. Or if your doctor wants you to use a different shoe, return it with no issue.
Facebook: Like KindRunner on Facebook here, and for every 500 likes, they will give away a pair of running shoes to one lucky winner and a running partner of their choice, provided that said partner is also a fan of the site!
Early Adopters: As an added bonus for the first 500 customers of KindRunner will be entitled to “Free Socks for Life!” Each time one of the first 500 return to the site and purchase a new pair a shoes, they will be allowed to choose a free pair of socks that will be shipped with their new shoes! As long as you keep running, you will keep getting socks, and reducing you shoes’ carbon footprint!
