Flash Sale Sites - Are you in?

Have you heard of flash sale sites? If you answered yes, and you're already signed up, then you probably already know that these sale sites let you score major, major deals on brand name apparel, accessories and items for the home.

We have scored some great gameday worthy items from these sites for ourselves and for family and friends. Or you can also find perfect pops of orange and purple to include in your home decor.

Here's how the sites work - you sign up on the site with your email, then each day you get an email from the site sharing the day's sales. Typically you have 24 to 48 hours to shop the sales before they disappear off of the site. Signing up is free and there's no requirement to buy - you can 'window shop' as much as you like.

Brands range from the unknown to the popular (Lilly Pulitzer, Jack Rogers, American Apparel, etc.) to the high end (Versace, DVF, Coach, etc.). The prices are marked WAY down. An example? I have scored a $300+ dress for only $80!

If you haven't gotten on board with these sites, you must try them out. Take a look below as we break down our favorites...each includes our personal invite link so you can sign up!
