Rue La La
is a favorite daily deal site for those with an eye for higher end fashion, with name brands such as Sperry, Seven for all Mankind and Lilly Pulitzer selling for as much as 80% off! Despite the fact that merchandise on RueLaLa is already deeply discounted, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t ways to save even more! With features such as a referral program and membership clubs for free shipping, Bargainistas can walk away with those designer duds for a fraction of the retail price!
If you’re not familiar with RueLaLa, one of the best features of the site is that the sales all begin at a set time – 11:00 am ET. This means that if you’re looking forward to a specific brand, you don’t need to worry about when the items will appear on the site because you already know! However, as fabulous as this feature is, it can also mean that items sell out very quickly, as most shoppers tend to log on early in the day. To prepare, check out RueLaLa’s list of boutiques opening over the next few days, which is featured at the bottom of their homepage, and set your alarm for 11am on the days that have a sale you are interested in! Not home at 11am? No worries! Simply download the RueLaLa app for Apple and Android devices and shop on the go. You can also set the app up to send you notifications when new sales begin!
If you love sites that reward you for spreading the word, then you’ll love RueLaLa’s invitations feature! With RueLaLa invitations
, you can send invites to friends to tell them about RueLaLa. When one of those friends makes a purchase, you”ll be given a $10 credit! You can even post your personal link to social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter where your friends and followers can join the site, garnering you a credit when they place their first order. Another perk to earning credits on RueLaLa is that there is no limit on how many you can earn so you can keep sending those invites!
The Still Want It Feature
We all know what it’s like to miss out on a deal that you really wanted but, fortunately, at RueLaLa, just because you miss something doesn’t mean that you won’t get it! With RueLaLa’s Still Want It feature, simply fill out a short form regarding the item that you missed and they’ll try to get it for you! You will need to let them know what size and color you want, along with any other specifics for the item and if they are able to locate it for you, they will automatically charge your credit card and send the item to you. You can even view the status of your Still Want It item under the "My Account" tab. RueLaLa will set an expirationdate for each item on your Still Want It list and if it is not filled by that date, the item will be canceled. If you change your mind before they find the item, no worries – simply log in and choose cancel request!
The Rue 365
If you tend to shop at RueLaLa more often than you might like to admit, The Rue 365 may be for you. Members pay $100 for membership to The Rue 365 but garner such perks as free shipping on all orders and two $50-off gift cards that can be chosen from several available brands. In the past, brands that have been offered have included J. Crew, Vineyard Vines, Tory Burch and other high-end designer labels. Although $100 may sound steep for membership, with $100 in gift cards and free shipping, which normally costs $9.95 per order, The Rue 365 can be well worth the investment for RueLaLa lovers.
The Rue 30
If you’re not keen on spending $100 to enroll in The Rue 365 but suspect that you may want to order a few items in the near future, you’re in luck! When you place an order on RueLaLa and pay the $9.95 shipping fee, you’ll immediately be qualified for free standard shipping for the next 30 days!
The Rue Warehouse Sale
Although it only comes once a year, The Rue Warehouse Sale, which aims to liquidate merchandise after the holidays, can be well worth the wait! This sale, which usually begins within a few days after Christmas, offers shoppers the chance to nab brand-name merchandise for a fraction of the original price. The Rue Warehouse Sale usually includes clothing for men, women and children, along with accessories, home goods and intimate apparel. In the past, shoppers have scored such deals as $275.00 Beirn flats for $27.90, $88.00 Lilly Pulitzer tops for $12.90 and Men’s Callaway golf shirts, which retail for $75.00 for just over $12! This is one sale that you definitely want to mark on your calendar!
