Online Sample Sales

Don’t pay full price for designer duds that might get puked on, pooped on or quickly outgrown. Online sample sale websites offer deeply discounted clothes, toys, and gear for babies, kids and moms, plus a chance to discover boutique brands not found in local stores.

Sales feature rotating upscale brands and last 36-72 hours. You can sign up for daily emails alerting you to current sales (sizes often sell out quickly), or just browse the sites after a growth spurt or when your kid’s wardrobe needs refreshing. There is usually a small shipping charge, so try to buy more together for truer savings. Some items are not eligible for return and some take a few weeks to ship, so pay attention to wording on the product information pages.
