Rue La La! January 14, 2010

Websites that offer great discounts on fabulous designer brands are enticing. I have signed up for several of those websites but I have mostly been disappointed. The prices were still high, the sale items were not great at all, or the websites just looked suspicious.

However, Rue La La is one e-commerce company that I love to check every now and then. Not only does the website feature great name brands like Gucci and D&G but also carries different items- apparel, footwear, jewelry, home items, and even cruises! Another good thing about this website is that members can view the featured brands from days ahead so there is no reason one could miss a great sale.Most of all, the discounts are great, for as low as 50%.

Here are some of the great sale I found today.

Giuseppe Zanotti Black Suede & Patent Satchel. Original Price: $1,140. Now: $299

Skagen Denmark Men’s Black Leather Watch. Original Price: $110. Now: $45

Junior Drake “Marlene” Cashew Leather Hobo. Original Price: $278. Now: $79

I had made a purchase in the past so I can say the website is reliable. Items usually ships in 9-10 business days in the United States. If you want to check it out, go to and sign up now.

VS bagJust like most people who hunt for great deals and bargains, I subscribe to newsletters from different companies and websites. Subscribing gives me update on the latest products, free shipment, and most excitingly, exclusive offers!

I have had several newsletter subscriptions but one of my few favorites is Victoria’s Secret. I get the latest products they have – even those that are not available at their front stores, free shipping offers, bigger discounts and lately, freebies! Who doesn’t like freebies?

Last week, I got a coupon from the mail for a free pair of panties with no purchase necessary. Plus, $10 discount on regular priced items. Isn’t that fabulous? I have been checking their website too and I find more offers each time. Victoria’s Secret is one of those few companies that I would rather check the website first before heading to their stores. There are just more things and offers going on.

The other day, I received another coupon for a free Beauty Rush® lip gloss. What is the catch? I need to just go to their store for a free bra fitting. No purchase necessary. Now, don’t we just wish every website gave us freebies even without buying their items?
