There is nothing more gratifying than getting a dress or shirt that you’ve been wanting for months for 50% off. This may seem impossible, but in fact there is a whole world of online shopping dedicated to sites that do exactly this. From clothes to shoes to jewelry, everything that you may ever want is included on these sites that offer insane deals for up to two days only. It’s like Black Friday every single day when you are racing to get the best deal before something sells out or the deal runs out. Welcome to the magical world of flash sales:
1) Rue La La
This Boston based online, membership only site offers deals everyday starting at 11 am EST. From my experience, when they offer brands such as Lilly, French Connection, or Jack Rogers, they will sell out in twenty minutes or less. Time is of the essence, but if you can score one of their coveted items, the deals are so good they are basically giving it away. This is a membership only site, however chances are that one of your friends already belong and can give you an invite. If not, I can help you out as well!
Gilt is similar to Rue La La in that they offer a set of deals every day. However, I love using Gilt City, one of its affiliate brands to find awesome things to do in Boston that you would never buy at regular price. They have tons of vouchers for restaurants, events, and parties around the area as well as the typical offering of clothes, shoes, and accessories. They also offer a yearly warehouse sale that allows local shoppers to come in and shop their inventory. The actual experience may be as out of control as the deals they have.
This site is famous for offering J Crew lookalike jewelry and accessories. They also often have great sales on scarves, hats, and headbands for winter. They offer a huge variety of sales every day, and I have found some amazing deals from them. They are PERFECT for Christmas shopping, but keep in mind that shipping sometimes takes a little longer than expected due to popularity. If you can score one of their coveted statement necklace sales, it is definitely worth the wait.
4) Very Jane
I recently discovered this site when I was picking out stocking stuffers for my sisters (hello adorable bracelet for $4). They also have adorable jewelry as well as cute clothing and tech accessories. If you’re looking for a little something to cheer up your friends or family, this is a great page to check out. They also often have lookalike jewelry, and on a college budget, this is definitely a lifesaver!
5) My Habit
This is also a newly discovered site that my sister found that has tons of amazing deals on pretty much everything from shoes to houseware. The deals are seriously amazing and it is definitely worth signing up for their site. I also love that they do collections based on style and color and not just brand, it definitely makes them unique from other sites like theirs.
