Good vs evil: Online sample sale debate

Good vs evil: Online sample sale debate fashion

There are sample sales everywhere in NYC. Fortunately, the temptation is far removed as the majority of them occur during the hours when most of us normal folk are working so we can do fun things like pay the rent. However, now there are all of these online invite-only sample sales like Hautelook and Gilt Group, and these evil little reminders appear in my inbox, reminding me of all of the delectable items I can purchase at seriously discounted prices. Slowly, the realization has dawned on me that I’m not actually saving money by buying goodies here—70% off or not, it’s still money I wouldn’t have spent anyway.

What are these invite-only sample sales to you—blessing or curse?
