{Shop Smart} 3 Killer Ways to Get the Best Deal from Flash Sale Sites

Today, however, it’s hard not to feel inundated with marketing campaigns targeted to make you spend more money. Who doesn’t love a good deal? A great purchase saves you money. It’s something you can afford, something you will use and something of great quality. Some of my favorite places to shop for everything from fashion, home decor and travel stuff has got be Beyond the Rack, RueLaLa and One Kings Lane.

Online Sample Sales:Fashion Thrills and Saving Deals

Exclusive private sale websites are the latest way to stay on top of trends and keep money in your pockets.  These online communities carry premium brands at affordable prices.  L.A.M.B., Gucci, Dior, and Chloe are just a few of the brands that I have seen for up to 80% off retail prices.  What’s the catch? You have to act quickly.  Exclusive online sites allow shoppers a specific amount of time, about 3 days or until they have sold out of all items, to make their purchases.  Did I mention AUTHENTICITY guaranteed?  It’s free to sign up, so you have nothing to lose.  Save money.   Look fab! Below are a few of my favorite sites and links for you to skip the waitlist and start shopping.  My top three online shopping communities are: 


Ruelala.com has truly become one of my favorite online shopping communities.  Their daily boutiques always stay on top of the hottest trends from the hottest brands. Unlike other invite only sites, Ruelala offers up and coming designers the opportunity to highlight their clothing and accessories. Here is your chance to  shop from your favorite designer’s collections.

Ideeli.com offers premium clothing, shoes, fashion accessories, home accessories, and all inclusive travel deals for the entire family.  There is a D&G halter that I think would be a great piece for spring.  For the month of March, Ideeli has teamed up with the people from O Magazine to help say goodbye to clutter.  To get ahead of spring fashions and maybe even your spring-cleaning try them out.  I did and I haven’t regret it yet.

Editors’ Closet

EditorsCloset.com  is another invitation only website offering exclusive savings on men’s, women’s and children’s fashion and luxury brands.  This site stands behind a motto of “Private Sales.  Designer Brands.  Members-only prices”.  Like Ruelala and Ideeli, Editors’ Closet guarantees that every item sold on their site is the designer brand it promises to be.   This site provides savvy shoppers, like yourselves, with premium brands for up to 70% off of retail prices plus free shipping on returns if you are not satisfied.  Just remember one thing… all sales run for a limited time and often close after 24-72 hours.
