Cheapskate: J. Crew’s Extra 30 Percent Off Sale!

Oh, hey there, J.Crew email in my inbox telling me there’s an extra 30 percent off sale items online. That’s the only excuse I need to blow my wad on preppy-cool basics I can wear this spring because lord knows I do not have nearly enough preppy-cool basics from J.Crew in my wardrobe, especially ones that cost $70 and under. And for those of you who think this sounds like sarcasm, I can assure you that it’s not — just look at the nine things I picked out and just try and tell me I — and you — don’t need them, like, immediately.

Love Wine? Frisky Readers Get $10 Off First Order With Lot18.com!

At this point, I would not be surprised to discover that I have wine running through my veins rather than blood. It has been my drink of choice for years, but my taste level has thankfully become more discerning — no more Two Buck Chuck or Yellowtail Shiraz, and definitely no Franzia. For people who are really serious about wine, trying new blends is a bit of a sport or a hobby, the way shopping can be for the fashion obsessed. Unfortunately, your local wine shop probably doesn’t get too many new things on a regular basis, and even when they do, they’re probably charging up the yin-yang for anything that’s especially premium. That’s why Lot18.com is any wino’s wet dream. Shopping online for wine is nothing new, but Lot18.com uses the online sample sale model of fashion sites like Gilt and Rue La La, offering members access to amazing wines at much lower prices than what you’d pay in stores. Each sale lasts for only a limited time, but they happen often; it’s like walking into your favorite boutique and discovering there’s a whole new rack of clothes in the sale section. Can you tell I’m obsessed? Currently, I am coveting the 2005 Star Lane Cabernet Sauvignon. We’re going to have a great time together as soon as this pesky sabbatical is over. But enough about me — Lot18.com is generously offering the first 1000 Frisky readers who register with the site a $10 credit towards their first purchase. Just click here, register, and shop away. Cheers! [Lot18.com: $10 Credit for Frisky Readers!] Keep reading »

Gilt Goes Auto-Style Again, This Time With Vespas

Will the idea of private sales for automobiles actually take off? We were pretty stunned when Gilt announced they were offering three VW Jettas for the insanely awesome price of $5,995. Sure, kinda crazy to buy a car off the internet … on a whim … from a clothing website, but we sort of dig the idea. Now it turns out Gilt is offering up Vespas. Racked reports that there are two models which price at $5,520 (down from $7,236) and $3,740 (down from $4,736). Can you feel the wind in your hair already? [Racked] Keep reading »

New Lustr iPhone App Plays Hot Potato With Sales

Screw you, internetz, for providing so many opportunities to spend all of our money on shoes. First you give us online shopping, then come online sample sales, now Lustr’s new iPhone app, which sends notifications of nearby New York sales to your phone. Yes, it’s super useful, but it also makes it hard to concentrate on what you’re doing when, after stepping off the train in the East Village and finding that Alexander Wang is marked down 40% a mere five blocks away. We are not strong enough to handle the temptation. New Yorkers, download the new app here and count down until you’re broke. [Racked] Keep reading »

A.P.C. Sale: The Best Of What’s Left

It’s summer sales time, which means we might be able to afford something from French retailer A.P.C. without a trace of buyer’s remorse. Somehow, A.P.C. manages to be distinctly Parisian yet gives a nod to American sportswear as well. While we wouldn’t call the sale clothing Cheapskate finds, the items are still pretty tempting, especially since some are 50 percent off the original price. So here’s the best of the A.P.C. sale, and remember to order quickly before your size is all gone. Keep reading »
