Shop it to Me Giveaway


I know, I know, I've sung the praises of Shop it to Me before. But people, it remains my absolute fave of all the e-mail-based online shopping tools. Sample sales are lovely, but I can rarely afford any of their offerings, and their referrals are contingent on PURCHASES instead of sign-ups. Other e-mail sale roundups are hard to read and manage, try to "guess" what you'll like instead of just letting you pick, and don't have the clean, easy feel that SITM has maintained throughout their entire existence.

Wait, let me back up.

In case you're unfamiliar, Shop it to Me is an e-mail service. You sign up for a free account, fill out some questions, and then select your faves from a list of brands and shops. Then, twice per week (or more frequently,if you'd prefer), an e-mail hits your inbox that lists out, pictures, and links to anything from those brands that has gone on sale in recent days. Shop it to Me includes nearly all major online retailers and is constantly adding more, so these e-mails are pretty durned comprehensive. And hazardous to the pocketbook.

As a fantastic bonus, you'll get a $10 gift card to retailers like Banana Republic, J.Crew, and Nordstrom for every 10 friends you refer. Sign-ups, not sales. Easy and simple, just the way I like it.

The marvelous folks at Shop it to Me allowed me to pick an item from my SITM Sale Mail a few weeks back, and I nabbed these amazing periwinkle blue Diesel booties.* They were 50% off and quite a bargain, and I can't wait to incorporate them into some spring-y outfits. When it finally warms up, that is ...

Additionally, I've got $50 that a lucky winner can use to apply toward any item from her personal SITM Sale Mail! Here's how you enter to win:

  1. Be a U.S. resident.
     
  2. Sign up for an account with Shop it to Me, if you don't have one already.
  3. Choose an item from a recent Sale Mail, or click onto your customized sale items by selecting "All My Sales" on the Shop it to Me website.
  4. Leave a comment on this post telling which item you'd pick if you won, and A VALID E-MAIL. Comments without a valid e-mail in the comment will be disqualified.
  5. Cross your fingers!

Enter by midnight CST on Sunday, February 13. I'll draw a winner at random the following week. This contest is open to U.S. residents only. Good luck everyone!

I'm trying to branch out to "stylish/exciting/fashionable" choices and I'm trying to find a cute large-but-squishable carry-on bag for travel, so the Tano Head to Toe mandarin orange bag looks great.

This is so hard. I love the BR V-neck cable tunic, the RL tiered ruffle skirt. And the purses, oh the purses. I think I would lean toward the skirt, as I own nothing like it and it is fun. I would have a reason to get the grey boots I'm eyeing on 6pm.com now!
