Christmas Shopping Deals on Name Brand Goods

December 14, 2009

Christmas deals on high end items like jewelry, watches, and designer clothes may be easier to find this shopping season.  Some luxury brands are starting “private sale” websites where they sell their purses, watches, shoes, clothes, etc in online sample sales, according to a recent New York times article.

Luxury items aren’t really my thing but if you lust after name brand products, some of the private sale websites may be able to get you some of the best christmas deals, high end merchandise at considerable discounts.  Below are some of the websites that the article mentions:

I’ve never been to a sample sale, when I sold on eBay I always bought surplus and overgoods from a third party.  Based on the article, sample sales sound like a bit of a zoo, with a big line and wait to get in.  Then, once inside you dash around trying to find the best deals before everyone else does, like the sample sale scene from the Confessions of a Shopaholic movie.

The private sale websites get rid of the waiting and dashing and can still save you a good deal of money off the retail price. So if you’re looking for something name brand this year, these may be some of the best websites for luxury christmas shopping.

    If you do care about budget and don’t know how to choose gifts, shopping online and is a great way to save money on luxury brands Christmas gifts, such as, Saks Fifth Avenue, or Neiman Marcus. This year, I prepare to give BF an Olympus digital camera. It’s 10mp, but only for $20. That’s one of best online deals I have ever found!
