Rue 30- Flash Sale Heaven

If you are an online shopping junkie like me, you already know about flash sales.  It not, take heed!  Flash sales are 24-72 hour sales of designer goods on invitation only websites.  The theory is that high-end designers can offer deep discounts because because the discounting is protected from the media.  So the sale doesn't hurt the brand. (BTW- I am obsessed with flash sale sites, expect to hear more about them!)

This is a great way to buy designer goods at less painful prices.  That means you can dress better than the other moms at the playground and still buy groceries.  Of the flash sale sites Rue La La is arguably the most popular, mostly dedicated to clothing- they introduce new sales everyday.  Right now you can get this DKNY trench for $99 (it retails for $300)

Here's the news worthy part... Rue La La just announced that all shipping is flat rate $9.95- pay it once and all other orders you place for 30 days ship free!  Shoppers rejoice- nothing says retail therapy like free shipping.
