Love A Good Designer Shopping Sale?

OK let’s get it out in the open: I love online shopping. I especially love online sales shopping. Call me the sales hunter. There’s something thrilling about nabbing a bargain online, especially a designer bargain, with the bonus of a pretty package arriving in the post.

I’ve signed up to a number of sales and discount shopping sites, even some in the US to try and cash in on the great exchange rate (let’s not talk about the disappointment I had when I found a gorgeous pair of designer nude heels…in my size…for only $US100 – only to find at checkout they don’t accept non-US credit cards). These sales sites work by selling overstocked items, last season stock – they’re basically like outlet stores, but online. Not all sales sites are worth your time, like the sites that have very limited sizing or charge huge delivery costs.

Reebonz is one of the best sales sites out there and the name, a play on ‘ribbons’, reminds me of the excitement of untying a ribbon on a package. Reebonz host private designer sales that typically last 2-3 days, so not everyone has a chance to steal your size or buy up big before you. For every friend you refer, you earn credits, which can be redeemed on purchases. The brands are impressive, from Coach and Kate Spade to Balenciaga and Prada – and yes, the stock is authentic. You’ll find bags, shoes, clothing and accessories and there are new sales every few days.

So how good are these sales? Looking at their current sales this wear-with-everything D&G tote bag was $433 but it’s on sale for $249. I spotted this Marc Jacobs quilted shoulder bag at Selfridges in London for an eye-watering £1050, but I’ve grabbed it for $540 – it is Christmas after all! And I almost fell off my chair when I saw this sexy Lancaster men’s watch for $134, a saving of $760!

Because there are so many sales sites out there I was particularly interested in their customer service. Amazingly you can speak to their customer service on the phone, and they also accept returns or exchanges within 14 days. And this is the bit that I really love. Free shipping. In 4-6 days. Or maybe the best thing is the packaging – luxurious black boxes tied with their signature gold ribbon. Isn’t that amazing? Shoes, accessories and small leather goods arrive in their original designer packaging too.

There’s still time to pick up Christmas gifts – for yourself too – they even have a special Christmas sale where you can receive an extra 30% off.
