So, as we all know, I love fashion and shopping. However, because of this love, I find ways to get a lot of things at really discounted prices. I rarely shop racks of regular priced clothing at the store and almost always have coupons or outlet shop if the store does not have good clearances/coupons. I thought I would share with you some of the sites I use for discount online shopping and the pros and cons of each site. I will include links so you can sign up as well, as most of them you need an invite from a member to join and if you join on most of them, they end up giving you and I free money to shop after purchase. Here goes with the first three. I will post more when I have time.
Click here to join. I have been using this site since June 2011. I have bought a lot from this site and it is probably my fav of all the discount sites. The prices are very low for higher end designers. Every day at noon, the site comes out with new items and lists them. Obviously, being on around noon may score you an item that will not be there later on in the day. If you have a "1st row" membership (which can be purchased for an additional amount), you get access to the sale before the general public at noon. I have never paid for this membership, but the site has given it to me for free various times, I think because I am a good customer and to try and lure me into purchasing, which I will not do. Shipping is $9.95, but once you pay that once, you get free shipping for the next 30 days. You may return any items that are eligible for return up to 21 days from the day the item is shipped from ideeli unless otherwise noted on a product page or in your order information online. They offer 2 return options: You may choose to receive either a store credit for the purchase price of the item and free return shipping, or a refund in your original form of payment minus a $8.95 return shipping charge. Be careful when shopping to note if items can be returned or not. It will say in the product listing. Certain items like bathing suits and lingerie are not ever returnable. I almost never order anything that I cannot return. Anyway, I have returned many items. I do not like that they use UPS for returns, I prefer USPS, but that is just personal preference. Prob one of my fav purchases ever from this site was a red wool trench coat I bought by DIVA. It was originally over $500 and I paid $89.99 (plus I had a coupon for $30 off). If something is sold out and you still want it, you can waitlist it, meaning once it is available the site will email you and allow you to buy. I think this happens when at item is returned or someone's credit card does not go through and their purchase is cancelled. Also, for every friend you invite who purchases, you get $25!
Rue La La
Click here to join. I have been using this site since October 2010. I started using it because I bought an amazing suit for Kurt for a ridiculous low price. I have found that this site has slightly higher prices then Ideeli (see above). Every day at 11 AM, the site comes out with new items and lists them. Obviously, being on around 11 may score you an item that will not be there later on in the day. Most Rue La La merchandise ships for a rate of $9.95 for standard shipping to the 48 contiguous United States. With The Rue 30, once you place an order and pay the shipping costs, standard shipping is free on every order you place for the next 30 days. We offer two return options. You may choose to receive either a merchandise credit and free return shipping (AK & HI: air shipping rates apply), or a refund to your original form of payment (minus return shipping costs. Visit My Returns and follow the steps for Returns Your Way to tell us which option you prefer. Just be sure we get the item within 30 days from the date you originally received it (and all items must be in their original condition with all packaging intact). Be careful when shopping to note if items can be returned or not. It will say in the product listing. Certain items like bathing suits and lingerie are not ever returnable. I almost never order anything that I cannot return. I have returned many items with no problem. I like that they use USPS for returns. You can waitlist sold out items, but you have to basically say you are purchasing if it becomes available and they charge your card once it becomes open. If you refer a friend who purchases, you get $10!

A lot of the stuff on this site is very high end, but they do have reasonable prices on things as well, you have to kinda look around. Items are listed at noon each day. My fav purchase from this site is a Kate Spade dress I bought for our law firm pictures that is the perfect summer dress. I also bought an amazing Love by Moschino winter coat at an insanely low price. At noon daily, the sales come out. You can waitlist items and they notify you when they are available for purchase. Be careful when shopping to note if items can be returned or not. It will say in the product listing. Certain items like bathing suits and lingerie are not ever returnable.
