UGH! If you’ve been eyeing UGGs for a while and they are either out of stock (we see you Tasman Slippers!) or financially out of reach, we’ve got you covered. Even if you don’t think they’re cute, they’ve become a winter staple – and let’s keep it real, they are seriously comfortable. I’m rocking my Dakota Moccasins as I type this, so I’m fully onboard the UGG train, but as a professional deal finder, I do not want to pay full price. I’m guessing if you’re reading this, you don’t want to either, so I’ve pulled together a few tips to help you save on your next pair of UGGs.


6 Tips on Finding UGG Boots on Sale & Clearance

Shop the best seasonal sales

The most obvious way to save on UGG boots is to shop the winter sales. While you won’t find discounts on all styles, you can find a selection (sometimes on certain colors) on sale at a number of stores. Here’s a few of our favorite places to find cheap UGG boots:

Take advantage of credit card and coupon discounts on new styles

If you’re looking for discounts on the new styles, you can find Neiman Marcus coupons a few times throughout autumn that will save you $50-$100 off the regular price. The catch? You have to spend at least $200 to save, so plan on grabbing a pair for someone else in the family, too.

Or, take advantage of an email signup. Macy’s offers 20% off your purchase when you open a store charge card, and you can get 10% off when you sign up for email and text alerts at Bloomingdale’s. Note that some retailers may exclude UGG merchandise from these offers, but you can earn points via free loyalty programs to save on future purchases. 

Buy kids’ UGG boots

Insider secret: UGG kids’ boots look exactly the same as the women’s styles and cost about 20% less. Kids’ sizes 3-6 are equivalent to a women’s size 5-8, so if you have feet on the smaller side, there’s a good chance you’ll find the perfect fit for a less threatening price. We also typically see deeper discounts on kids’ styles when they go on sale.


Buy Koolaburra by UGG (or a similar brand)

The cheapest pair of UGG boots we found on sale this year were still $77. But UGG’s sister brand, Koolaburra, features lookalikes for a fraction of the price. The difference? UGG boots are lined in 100% genuine sheepskin, while Koolaburra boots are lined with a combination of shearling and faux fur. Considering you still get the soft suede upper and durable EVA sole, we think these boots are a bargain, even at full price. You can also buy select styles at Kohl’s and take advantage of Kohl’s Cash offers.

Another option is to try another brand altogether. Bearpaw boots, which are nearly indistinguishable from UGGs, have a sheepskin and wool-blend lining. You can get them for half the price of similar UGG styles, and they’re also more likely to go on sale. Emu Australia boots are also comparable to UGGs in both quality and price — but we see deeper discounts on these throughout the year. Of all the options, we think Australia Luxe has the cutest styles. 

Get the right pair, and make them last

You’ll want those new boots to last, so be sure to use a waterproofing spray. I’ve learned firsthand to be careful, especially when you choose a style where the shearling is exposed to the elements. If you live in a snowy climate, you’re better off sticking with the classic styles (which are also cheaper). UGG does sell a cleaning kit, which I highly recommend. 

Also keep in mind, all UGGs are not created equal. While many people find the classic UGGs to be instrumental in maintaining their personal happiness, the leather styles that look more like traditional boots do not breathe like the classics, and are not nearly as comfortable. If you’re looking for a nice pair of riding boots, you can get a genuine leather pair for $60-$100 on sale from another brand. There’s no need to spend upwards of $200 on UGGs.
