Online Sample Sales

Online Sample Sales: sample sales allow retailers to sell excess merchandise to you at a fraction of the original costs and also entice buyers to return to retail stores to purchase items. Previously, you had to go to a physical location with little or no publicity about the events. Now, there are plenty of online options so you don't have to live in New York City. Of course, being physically there is always ideal, but here are some tips:

  • Know your sizing of your favorite brands so you can buy without a doubt
  • When in doubt of fit, texture, etc., look into return policies
  • Don't delay logging into the site - products sell out quickly
  • Have fun and join now with links below!
    • GILT GROUPE - INFOFORNYC'S TOP CHOICE - this premiere web site stocks some of the best brands with a beautiful layout and great tips such as dimensions of the models and sizing. Past sales have included Christian Laboutin, Vera Wang, Ralph Lauren, Theory, Tumi, Diesel, and more.
    • ideeli - another online site with past sales such as Miu Miu, Longchamp, and more
    • Vente-Privee - This is one of the original online sample sale sites, though this is the US affiliate of the French brand in partnership with American Express. On the surface a seemingly odd partnership. They are a bit late to the game in the US. It looks like mainly women's items at this point.
    • Editor's Closet - past sales have included Gucci, Nicole Miller, Marc Jacobs, and more.
    • Beyond the Rack - more online sales with membership required
    • Rue La La - more online sales with membership required
    • MyHabit - Amazon is getting into this space with MyHabit
