Day 1385 - Waikele Premium Outlets

Want to bag a bargain? Then Waikele is for you.

For $10 return you can get on a tour bus for the forty minute trip out to Waikele Premium Outlets where you can hang out with Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Nine West, Saks 5th Avenue, Guess, Levis, The Children's Place, Sketchers and so many more brand name favourites.

If you think a couple of hours is going to be enough time to cruise the place, then think again.  With the best of intentions you can wander along thinking you'll just scope the joint, but with your return bus waiting on the corner it's usually a mad dash and armloads of bags that you clamber on board wishing you had "just a few more minutes" to bag a few more bargains.

This was my fourth visit to the Waikele Outlets (all on separate Hawaiian holidays) and I wasn't disappointed. The biggest bargain for me always comes from buying sneakers (this time it was Sketchers) and finding shoes for under $20 at the Nine West outlet. For my little man Darby, his favourite haunt is the Vans outlet. This time his Vans only cost him $25 which are usually around $70 at home. Tahlia didn't score so well this trip, but that is only because her heart was back at Forever 21.  And husband didn't come at all knowing his wallet would take a beating if he stepped foot on Waikele territory.

My haul consisted of Guess sunglasses ($35) and wallet ($15); Sketchers runners ($41) and Nine West shoes ($15).  Bargain!
