If you wore last summer’s flip-flops to the ground, you can score a very affordable replacement at Old Navy’s annual $1 dollar flip-flop sale, which will take place on Saturday, June 24. And this year, for the first time ever, customers can buy a pair online in addition to stores across the country. Brick-and-mortar locations will be opening their doors at 7 a.m.—two hours earlier than usual—to ensure shoppers have plenty of time to load up on the popular sandals.
The event is Old Navy’s second biggest shopping event of the year, after Black Friday, according to Forbes. “Customers start asking about the date as early as February,” Julie Luker, the director of PR and partnerships at Gap Inc. and Old Navy, told Refinery29. People even start lining up outside the store before the sale starts, so be sure to set your alarms and brew some extra strong coffee. Waking up so early on a Saturday morning might seem crazy, but it’s worth it for the huge savings. (A pair of flip-flops usually costs $4.)
Cardholders can beat the craze and pre-shop the $1 sandals on Saturday, June 17 in stores only. But don’t worry, there will be plenty left for non-cardholders the following Saturday.

But before you find the largest bag you own to fit dozens of flip-flops, be warned that there is a limit per customer. You can only buy 10 pairs. (There are 11 different colors, so choose wisely.) But still, 10 new pairs of shoes for just a $10 bill? It’s a pretty great deal.
