Deal of the Day websites for the design blog crowd

"Deal of the Day" websites aren't new. Woot.com debuted in 2004 and a slew of tech sites followed in the following years. In recent years, the deal of the day crowd has gotten more diverse and there are a slew of sites that appeal to the design blog reading/writing crowd.

Here's a run down of my favorites. If there's an invitation required to join, I've embedded it in the clickable logo. Once you join, remember that some sites will give you rewards for referring your friends.

If I'm missing any sites, please comment about them and feel free to add a link.



We all know this one. Exclusively home furnishings.



Gilt is mostly clothing, but they have a nice home section.


Gilt recently closed Gilt Fuse (a lower end version of Gilt),
but opened Gilt City, which has deals specific to New York City.




Lots of clothing, but some home items



Clothing, accessories, and home items



Lots of clothing and accessories plus some home items


I don't go to these stores very often and they are usually mostly clothing and accessories:






Have you purchased from these "Deal of the Day" sites? What have your experiences been? Aside from a few blips here and there (a purchased item out of stock, for example), my experiences have been positive.

  1. I bought some Sferra bedding from Rue La La and was quite pleased with it.

    I've also bought gifts from time to time. Never have had a problem.

    Thanks for introducing me to some new sites!

  2. What a great list (I just tweeted it)! I'm not a big online shopper, but I'm always open to new sources :).

  4. I have not purchased from any of them yet. . . they make me want to impulse shop! But I do want to start using them when I'm looking for particular items.

  5. These sites are going to be huge!

    Have you heard of Bloopio.com it lets you create your very own
    deal of the day sites.

    I can't wait to see what sites will come up next!
