Best online private shopping clubs | Like OzSale & Brands Exclusive

Limited time, limited availability, limited membership. They’re the three ingredients that make up online private shopping clubs, the mecca for high-end brands at low prices.

The premise for these 'private shopping clubs' is simple: you sign up as a member and whenever a sale is on the horizon, the shopping gods send you an email or an iPhone alert warning you that something big is going down at a specific time and on a specific date.

You save the date, you get into work early, you hammer the refresh button until your fingers seize up and as the time ticks over, your page refreshes and a goldmine of designer labels and boutique wares—most of which are exclusive to the site—appears. And all at rock bottom prices.

Similar to deal-of-the-day websites like groupon.com, each item has a time and stock limit, so you've got to hurry. (Window shoppers beware, this is an impulse buyers zone.) Despite the rush, there is an upside: you won't have to elbow the masses eyeing those Jimmy Choo shoes too in order to get them. Join now to shop your little heart out.
