5 Sample Sales Sites That Offer Luxury Goods At A Discount

Before I introduce to you 5 of my favorite designer online sample sites, you may want to read our 6 Tips To Snag Luxury Items At Discount Prices Using Sample Sites to get a better understanding of what to expect. I have listed each site, briefly covering perks, items sold and whether anyone can sign up for a membership or if an invite is required to join.

  1. OnekingsLane.com
    High-end luxury furnishings and home decor, selected by interior designers. You can purchase brand and theme specific luxury items with designer names ranging from Missoni to Ralph Lauren. Members can make online purchases, with savings of up to 70% off retail price.
  2. PLNDR.com
    A members-only flash site that offers well-known street wear apparel and accessories (names ranging from Supra, Hellz Bellz, Dimepiece, Pro-Keds ,just to name a few) for up to 80% off the retail price. Sales last between 48-72 hours and run on a referral basis meaning that if a member refers a friend who successfully purchases through the site, the referring member receiving a $10 credit toward their PLNDR account.
    Blow-out sales held from time to time with merchandise at very affordable price-points.
    PLNDR is a subsidary of the popular street wear and urban apparel clothing e-site Karmaloop , so current registrants are able to use Karmaloop Rep promo codes, giving them an additional 1% off of their purchases (Reps receive points that are accumulated and can be redeemed for Karmaloop dollars)
  3. GILT.com
    An invitation only flash site offering a variety of products from menswear, womenswear, children’s apparel, accessories, lifestyle items, travel deals and local services and experiences at up to 70% off.
    Users can purchase e-cards online and all merchandise shipped is insured at no cost.
    “Advance Previews” of designers bios and reels regarding up-coming sales and must-have pieces are available for viewing on the site.
    Users can download the “Gilt Clock”, which is an online desktop program that sends customized alerts and reminders to members. An iPhone app is also available.
  4. RueLaLa.com
    A membership only site that allows interested shoppers to sign-up for their “waiting list”, offers high-end designers clothing and accessories. A $10 referral credit goes to any member who refers friends to sign up, and who successfully make a purchase on the site.
    This site is great because it does not give much information about what is available, but the “waiting list” makes users believe that that it is exclusive.
  5. BeautyTicket.com
    A large array of beauty and make-up products available for up to 80% off. Interested shoppers just need to sign up for a free membership and immediately upon confirmation are able to take advantage.
    Members can receive mobile updates via email or SMS and receive a free gift with a purchase of $25 USD or over.
    What’s interesting and different about this site is that it has a section called “The Beauty Panel”, where a group of ‘real women’ blog daily. There are also a number of publicized articles available, making it appear like a magazine rather than just an e-commerce site.

If you have any suggestions for any other online designer sample sale sites, feel free to comment. I tried to categorize these 5 sites rather than add duplicate kinds as there are a ton of them out there!
