What’s more exciting than scoring a sweet deal when your favourite designers go on sale? Getting exclusive access to limited-time-only blowout sales that knock up to 70% off of retail prices, in the comfort of your own home. Canadian deal savvy buyers are loving the newest craze in online shopping: flash sale sites.
High end items are sold in flash sales that only last a limited time, and are only available to members. Designer duds for a fraction of the price? What’s not to love!
These four Canadian websites have us fawning over flash sales:
This Montreal-based site is our top favourite amongst the rest. With labels like Cheap Monday, Elizabeth & James and even Tom Ford, Privé appeals to the fashion savvy shopper who’s seeking the season’s best at an affordable price point. With original and inspiring editorial shoots featuring products for sale, Privé makes shopping online a style-filled breeze.
Dealuxe features a curated collection of wearable must-haves for the girl-next-door. With weekly deals and new products, free membership and luxe casual brands like J Brand, Dolce Vita, Equipment, House of Harlow and a range of makeup labels, this online shop has it all.
Avoid the sample sale chaos and take your wallets to the web with Canada’s new Peacock Parade. Every Wednesday morning, members are notified of sales on designers like YSL, Prada, Gucci and Canadian talents at a fraction of retail cost. The website also features fashion content such as look books, fashion tips and guest bloggers.
Beyond the Rack
One of the original flash sale sites, Beyond the Rack has built quite a name for itself. This private shopping club provides both men and women with the deals they so desire in 48 hour long shopping events. The invite only page carries the likes of Tom Ford, Michael Kors and Badgely Mishka–making luxury affordable for all.
