If there’s one thing that says summer is officially on its way (aside from, you know, grilling and drinking margaritas on the patio), it is Old Navy’s $1 flip-flop sale.

Every summer, for one day only, Old Navy sells their super comfy (if I do say so myself) flip-flops for just $1 per pair. These shoes are perfect for lounging around the pool, doing yard work, or slipping on your feet before treating yourself to a pedi.

The magical day this year is Saturday, June 15, both in-store and online, so mark your calendars now.

As a bonus, if you go to your local Old Navy before noon or head to the website before 12 p.m. PST, you will also get a free pair of flip-flops with any $24 purchase.

You can grab up to 10 of the $1 pairs of flip-flops per transaction in store, or five pairs per transaction online (solid colors only), for the whole family. (Trust me, it won’t be hard to stock up on 10 pairs at once, as they come in all sorts of fun summer colors like pink, purple, yellow and teal.)

As if $1 flip-flops weren’t enough, Old Navy is giving us something new this year, too — a chance to win $24,000!

The Golden Flip-Flop

Here’s how it works: First, search your local Old Navy store or their website for a golden flip-flop. You’ll find them hidden throughout every Old Navy store and throughout the website.

Once you find one, either enter the sweepstakes on their site if you found it online or take the in-store flip-flop to an associate for a chance to win the $24,000 grand prize. (The number 24 is a nod to 24-karat gold.)

Even if you just visit the sweepstakes page, you’ll receive a 24%-off code. Similarly, you’ll get a coupon if you find the golden flip-flop in a store.

The sweepstakes begins on June 15 at 12 a.m. PT online or when stores open.

So, what are your chances of finding that golden flip-flop? Stores will hide five, seven or 10 flip-flops, depending on the size of the store. Old Navy advised shoppers to search at eye level; you won’t need to get on your hands and knees to see them.

The company also recommend looking around the whole store and not just in the flip-flop section, as the golden flip-flop is not an actual shoe — it’s a trophy. And don’t dig through folded products and bins — it won’t be there either.

The $1 flip-flop sale at Old Navy started in 2005 and quickly became popular, ushering in the start of summer (at least for your feet!). In fact, because of its popularity, Old Navy has also introduced a winterized version of the sale with $1 cozy socks around the holidays.

Will you be stocking up on some new flip-flops for the summer?
