I’ve been posting about Refinery 29’s new Groupon-like site Reserve for a while now over on my sale/coupon site Sale Bite. And while those of you who read both sites may be sick of my pathetic over-the-top admiration for the damn site…here I go again. It was only a matter of time before one of the big guns did this whole Groupon for fashion the right way. But that said, Refinery29 was the perfect site for the job. 1. They know fashion 2. They know indie fashion 3. They have the resources (money, staff, notoriety, traffic, etc), but that aside, I’m still impressed at the site everyday. Their deals are always amazing, no less than 50% off vouchers to some of the best stores online and off. Most of their offers are available for online shoppers (super plus), the site is pretty to look at, easy to use, and always improving. I really can’t believe their kick-ass offers. It’s like they secretly picked my brain and came up with all the brands/stores in our shopping guide I’d love to score at 50% off, but they didn’t! Hmmm…
Some past offers include 50% off:
Rag and Bone
The idea is simple. Every week — but now it seems more often — they offer 50% off vouchers to sites in NY, SF or online. You buy the voucher — usually available in multiple denominations like buy $75 get $150, and buy $150 and get $300. You only have a few months to use the voucher, which they’ll email you after you buy it, and each sale is up for about 6 – 7 days. Some exclusions apply, depending on the offer, but really not many at all. They also offer a hefty refer a friend credit, which I’ve had the privilege to enjoy. Heads Up: the links here include my referral link. Since the site is membership only, when you refer-a-friend, and they buy a voucher, you get a $25 credit. None of that free shipping bull. This is the real deal. And, the credits have a pretty long life span and don’t expire for a while.
