Members Only Get The Inside Scoop On Designer Deals

May 19, 2008 by SheFindsSuzelle

There’s a new trend in online shopping: members-only websites that sell luxury designer items at deep discounts (sometimes more than 70%!).

Even if you’re not out to drop thousands, these sites can help you score the latest luxury goods. Recent “sales” at ideeli.com include an Alexis Hudson Madeline Clutch for $185 rather than its regular $395 price, or an Abaco Eternity Weekender for $195, 73% off of the original $735.

But buyer beware, most of the sites have strict return policies, so read the fine print. And after three days of emails advertising the latest! greatest! hottest! deal, without one being something I had to have, I've started ignoring the emails in favor of stalking my tried and true online sites, such as bluefly.com, where I can score amazing deals on this Stuart Weitzman patent leather shoulder bag ($263, was $525) and Cala clutch ($145, was $295).
