Your Online Sample Sale

There are a ton of sites out there like Bluefly that boasts great deals. But the quest continues to get those high-end designs at a much lower price.

Two sites to bookmark and add to your favorites: Gilt.com and Ideeli.com

These sites sell luxury brands at relatively low costs. So for example you an score a Tracy Reese dress for $182 that was originally $600+. The other plus is that the items for sale are not two or three years old, but current trends.

What is great about such sites is that you get the sample sale prices without having to rush during your lunch hour and clash with other desperately-seeking-good deals women and men.

I haven't bought from them, but am registered with Gilt.com and I love that you are notified in advance by email on when the sale will begin and can plan accordingly.

The catch with these sites is that they are invite only. So you can't just log-on and register. No fear KC did some digging:

Addtional Info/Resources:
- If you go to Ideeli.com you can enter the invite code CNET; it seems to be currently working. If that doesn't work then google "Ideeli invite code" and something will come up.
- For Gilt.com you need to be invited. BUT you can click here to register.
- The local ABC Philadelphia station just did a segment on these sites and you can check it out here. This station also has links and codes to these sites since doing the story. Scroll to the bottom of this page. The provided codes are good until 2/17/08
- If you are experiencing any issues email TellMeKC@gmail.com and we will send you an invite as we are registered users of both sites.
