Ways to Save in 2011: Designer Flash Deal Sites

12 Jan

This year, I highly recommend you join some of my favorite flash-deal designer sites out there. These websites are free to join, and offer exclusive sales on designer items (Kate Spade, Coach, American Apparel, Rock and Republic, and many more!). Sales will usually run between 40% and 85% off regular retail prices.

My favorite find last year: A $40 American Apparel romper for just $2 shipped!

To get more bang for your buck on these websites, follow these tips:
First of all, sign up! Most sites will give you between $10 and $20 credit for free when you register. Invite Friends! For every friend you refer to these sites, you will earn at least $5 in credit when they make their first purchase. The rewards vary by website.

Living Social is similar to Groupon: they offer up to 90% off local deals to movies, restaurants, theaters, bars, and more. Living Social also offers a Sharing Program: if you purchase a deal and then recommend three friends that purchase the deal as well, yours is completely free!

Eversave: Up to $10 off!

22 Dec

Not only is Eversave offering a free $5 credit to anyone who signs up for their email newsletters by December 31, 2010, but they are also offering a $5 off any purchase coupon which can be stacked with this free $5 credit. Just use coupon code FIRSTBUY to get an additional $5 off any purchase made by TODAY, December 22, 2010.

Also, blogger Money Saving Mom received a free $10 credit in her account as a Christmas gift from Eversave. They sent these out today to everyone who has made a purchase from them this past year. Woot!

If you got the free $10 credit, you may be able to stack the $10 credit with the FIRSTBUY $5 off coupon to get $15 off any deal through tomorrow! However, if none of the deals are things you need or want, I’d hang onto your free $10 credit and wait for another hot deal to surface.
