This concept is entirely appealing and smart, especially during a recession-embedded holiday season: to alleviate that pesky voice that says “don’t buy it now, it’ll go on sale in two weeks,” there are websites that will actually e-mail you when specific items you’ve chosen goes on sale.
I, for example, would like to know when this Shoshanna dress goes on sale, both because I aspire to be Blair Waldorf and because 40% off retail just isn’t enough for me. To make it happen, simply search for the dress at ShopStyle.com, then mouse over the image and click “sale alert.” Enter your e-mail and voila, you’ll know the moment you can afford it.
SavvyCircle's model is slightly different – you sign up then choose items from their partner sites – but trust us, there are plenty of options.
Happy [smart] shopping!
