I just got a fantastic deal on an American Tourister luggage set at BuyDig.com and I need to fill ‘em up! So I’ve been shopping for chic cruise wear and designer accessories for an upcoming cruise in the Baltic Sea.
You know I never pay full price for anything. That’s why I’ve been visiting my favorite online outlets, hoping to bag a bargain or two on high-end brands. I love gawking at those colorful Hermès scarves (my birthday is coming up, Honey!), Chanel purses (one day!), Tiffany necklaces and Gucci shoes.
Occasionally, there’s a deal that is just too good to pass up at these eight online outlets. I’ve included a few insider tips, too. Keep on saving!
Shop from your couch and score up to 70% off purses, shoes and accessories. I head right to the clearance section. You often can save an extra 20% on select sale items with a coupon code. I got a sweet crossbody bag for less than $50 with free shipping. The purse was originally priced $198. You must sign up with an email address to get invited to sales.
Tip: Opt in for texts to get a coupon for $10 off $100 purchase.
Info: Coachoutlet.com; shipping is free
Like many women, I have a weakness for shoes. 6pm.com is the outlet store for Zappos.com. You can’t beat its prices on high-end looks. The site also sells designer eyewear, clothes, purses and watches. I snagged cute pair of Michael Kors sandals for $40. The same shoes are now on sale at Macy’s for $60.
Tip: Search for shoes by size, because stock is limited.
Info: 6pm.com; shipping is free on orders of $50 and up.
This marketplace connects millions of buyers and sellers with new and used designer goods. If you’ve always wanted a Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag, Chanel shoes or Tiffany bauble, this is a great place to start your search. I’ve been browsing for a Hermès scarf, but haven’t pulled the trigger yet. Got something of value in your closet that you don’t wear? Sell it on the site and buy something you will use. Fees: $2.95 under $15 and 20% of the price over $15.
Tip: The company now is selling home goods. Look for art, bedding, bath and storage and organization, from Crate & Barrel, Anthropologie and IKEA.
THE REAL REAL
This is another popular marketplace that consigns designer goods, similar to PoshMark. I like gawking at Christian Louboutin shoes and Cartier jewels. You’ll also find more down-to-earth brands. The company guarantees items are “100% the real thing.” The site also sells luxury baby gifts and kids apparel. Sign up and get a $25 credit.
Tip: Get 24-hour advanced access to sale items for $10 a month with a First Look subscription.
Bet you didn’t know Amazon has an outlet store! It’s a well-kept secret. This is where you’ll find all of the Seattle-based online retailer’s markdowns, closeouts and overstock deals — and there are millions of them. Find deep discounts on toys, games, electronics, fashion, beauty, kitchen appliances and more.
Tip: Click on “Super Discounts” to find rock-bottom prices.
This is Net-a-Porter’s outlet. Find more than 350 luxe brands including Valentino, Chloe, Tory Burch, Isabel Marant and others at up to 75% off. Visit the “Last Chance to Buy” section to get an extra 20% off. Of note: 50% off Diane Von Furstenberg’s famous wrap dresses. Prices start at just $134.
Tip: Click on “Editorial” to get a line on key trends for summer.
Sign up with an email address to get access to this members-only online boutique. The site started out offering limited-time sales on luxury clothes, accessories, home goods and services at up to 70% off. It’s evolved into a clearinghouse of designer goods available anytime.
Tip: Check out the top-shelf beauty section, and save on YSL, Chanel, Lancome, Dior and other five-star beauty products, hair care and fragrances.
Info: Gilt.com; Shipping is $9.99 and then free for 30 days
UNITED APPAREL LIQUIDATORS
UAL purchases overstock items and past-season goods from department stores. It also buys samples and overruns from designers. Merchandise is available in limited quantities. UAL has seven retail stores in Tennessee, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi, but until one arrives in South Florida, you’ll have to surf online. I spied Calvin Klein tees for men for $18 and Cole Haan penny loafers for $33. Designer jeans that retail for hundreds can be had for as little as $24. Let your teen loose on this site for back-to-school shopping.
Tip: If you like it, buy it. It won’t be on the site long.
