Adventures in Online Shopping: Which Flash Sale Sites Are Still Worth Stalking?

flash sale sites I was looking through the archives of this blog a while ago, and found my old post on sample sale sites.  Man! I remember when flash sale sites like Gilt and Ideeli were shiny and new, and things seriously did sell out in minutes. Then, everyone and their sister started a flash sale site — and half of the comments on this site were asking whether people thought X site or Y site was reputable/worthy.  It’s 2017 now, and I thought it might make an interesting discussion: do YOU still use flash sale sites? Which ones do you love the most — and do you look for specific things on them, or do you just generally like to shop on them? Do you have any preferred tricks for shopping the sites (always use the app! search by X! stalk sales with THIS site)?

For my $.02, while I’m no longer setting my alarm to flash sale sites, I’m still vaguely aware of Gilt (ooh, now offering free returns at Saks OFF5TH stores), Rue La La, and Hautelook (now affiliated with Nordstrom Rack, with free returns to any Rack store). I’ve bought something from all of them recentlyish, I think — a painting from Gilt, Spanx tights from Rue La La, and some hot pink Alexis Bittar earrings from Hautelook — but none of them are really on my radar on a daily basis. (OK, fine: I’ve also searched One King’s Lane and Joss & Main lately for a piece of furniture, as well as Zulily for kid clothes.) I have heard of them being particularly good for some categories of shopping, though, so I thought I’d share:

Deal Alert: ShopBop’s Big Tiered Sale!

ShopBop’s big tiered sale is here (formerly known as their “Big Event sale”). As we’ve noted in the past, this is a great sale to stock up on some of those workwear classics that NEVER go on sale — and the more you spend, the more you save. Some details: use code GOBIG17 for 15% off orders of $200+, 20% off orders of $500+, and 25% off orderes of $800+ — it’s valid on full-price and sale items. This is a great chance to get some pieces from classic accessories brands, including Ferragamo, LK Bennett, Rebecca MinkoffTory Burch, Claire V, and Hunter. (I particularly love their jewelry collection — it’s always hip and interesting.) Note that because ShopBop is owned by Amazon, Prime shipping is available (they have a general 3-day free shipping policy though); returns are free.  The sale ends March 7.

Some of my favorite pieces for work and the weekend are below; a few general brands to look for include TheoryDiane von Furstenberg, Black Halo, Equipment, and Smythe (so many colors of their super popular blazer, pictured at top!).  For the weekend, great selection of denim — some of the most-loved denim we rounded up recently is part of the sale, including jeans from Paige, Frame, AG (high-rise and cigarette), these boyfriend jeans from Citizens of Humanity.

I did a whole roundup of some of my top picks, but it looks like the blogging tool I used is having technical issues at the moment… yay! Hopefully it’ll come up sooner rather than later — in the meantime, the links above should get you started. Lots of great things to buy in the sale, from basic to fun — and VERY easy to get to the 25% off stage and snag the discount on things that never go on sale.
