Get $50 Worth of Shoes for $25

NEW YORK (MainStreet) – The bread and butter of Groupon’s business is local deals, primarily for small businesses in a given area. But once in a while the site will offer online deals that can be accessed by anyone, like last week’s ill-fated flower deal through FTD.

Today’s deal for Long Island, N.Y., is one such deal. Even if you don’t live in the area, you can get a $50 credit at the excellently-named for $25. Groupon account-holders just need to buy the coupon on Groupon’s site, and they’ll be given a code that can be redeemed on Shoebacca for their next purchase. The deal is limited to one coupon per Groupon account, and the credit must be used in one order, so you’ll want to buy something that’s at least $50 to get the full value.

So what can you get at Shoebacca (which has somehow avoided a lawsuit by George Lucas)? There’s this pair of men’s vegan shoes ($55) for only $30 with the coupon. Meanwhile, women can get these strange but warm-looking “Bearpaw Donner Slippers,” priced at $49.99. And the site also sells bags and sunglasses.

As with all daily deals, this one expires tonight at midnight. And once you’ve got it, you’ll need to use the coupon by Aug. 16, 2011.
