Best online private shopping clubs
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.
We’re reader-supported and may be paid when you visit links to partner sites. We don’t compare all products in the market, but we’re working on it!
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 appear – most of which are exclusive to the site. 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 also eyeing those Jimmy Choo shoes in order to get them. Join now to shop your little heart out.
Hot on the heels of brandsExclusive is Buyinvite. It offers up to 80% off the RRP of its stock (think big brands like Hugo Boss and Armani and fun youthful lines by Roxy and Vans) and for every friend you invite you can earn $20 toward your next purchase.

There's a smorgasbord of events (read, sales) on all the time so if you can't roll over in bed for first pickings, there'll still be plenty of designer labels on the virtual shelves for you to pick from when you do manage to crawl out from under the covers.
