The number of online sample sale sites has been increasing exponentially starting with the CFDA-approved Gilt Groupe. I thought I would do a quick post listing all of the sample sites:
(1) Gilt Groupe
They have the biggest designer brands and they are associated with CFDA. Gilt just had a very successful sale on Christian Louboutin and Theory shoes.
Hautelook consistently has great sales on apparel and accessories. Right now, it is having sales on Development by Erica Davies, Gucci (accessories), Kenneth Jay Lane, and BCBGMaxazria, among others.
The thing that sets ideeli apart from the other sample sale sites is that it frequently has awesome giveaways that you can enter to win (they just gave away Marni flower and chain necklace!!!). ideeli also tends to have more sales of home items.
Juxzy often has high-end boutiques (which you wouldn't find on sale easily online). The Bulga boutique is ongoing right now on Juxzy.
Rock&Republic is on sale on Ruelala right now, and Valentino has just ended yesterday. Ruelala has a good mix in the sample sale boutiques it gathers.
Just learned of TopSecret recently...You can view videos that introduce the brands on sale. Example of sales on this site include: Marc Jacobs Eyewear, Ed Hardy Intimates, Earl Jeans, etc.
(7) Billion Dollar Babes
One of my newest find. They sell expensive stuff (i.e.,branded). Quite the discount.
(8) Beyond The Rack
Same idea. You can use my personal invitation code (NTR8B07BA4C) to sign in and register a new account.
All these sample sale sites are invitation-only. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the ones you are interested in joining, and I will send you an invitation for them.
