The best secret sales websites

best secret sales online

What are 'secret sales'?

Secret sales online are a gold mine if you're into the finer things in life - cheap designer clothes, cheap designer handbags, flash sales, cheap holidays and designer outlets online are full of discounted items that would usually cost you hundreds. The only difference is that they're 'secret', but all that means is you have to log in to see what is specifically included in the sales.

How does it work?

Items listed on these websites are usually purchased at a discount by the retailer because they're last season's stock or surplus that haven't been sold. For holidays, it's hotels wanting to fill their last-minute empty rooms and airlines doing the same with empty seats on their flights.

So, the 'secret sales' sites are offered these products on the basis that they will sell them all fast by having a 'flash sale' - i.e., each item will only be available for a limited time before the sale 'ends'.

So, here are our favourites - get bargain hunting!
