How does Love the Sales work?
Love the Sales is a portal offering an overview of the best sales in the UK, on domestic and international brands.
At any one time, thousands of sales will be going on all over the country, and even the quickest and most clued-up shopper can’t possibly keep tabs on all of them.
There’s nothing worse than getting hold of an item you’ve been looking for, only to fnd you could have got a better deal elsewhere! Not much better is the frustration of having to go through endless voucher codes, only to find that none of them work.
With Love the Sales, all offers are up to date and valid. To use the site, search for what you’re looking for, and see at a glance where the hottest sales are going on.
Click through to complete your purchase with the retailer. You’ve been doing it for flight and travel bargains for years with the likes of Skyscanner and Trivago – why aren’t you doing the same for your wardrobe?
How does Secret Sales work?
Secret Sales offers “flash” sales where you can buy goods resold from major brands. Whatever’s left at the end of the season, or whatever they have left from previous seasons, is cleared out from the brands’ warehouses and sold to discounters like Secretsales.
You can get a serious discount of up to 70% on older stock, but you need to be quick. Six or seven times a day, new stock (new to Secret Sales, at least) will be offered at a good discount to those who manage to put their fastest finger first.
How are Secret Sales and Love the Sales different?
The biggest difference is that you can look for anything you like on Love the Sales, which keeps track of thousands of sales happening across the UK at any particular time.
So, if there’s a particular item you have your eye on – a new pair of boots, new jeans, a dress for a special occasion – Love the Sales will show you precisely what’s available at a great discount.
With Secret Sales, specific brands and items are offered in short-term “flash” sales, which is similar to Brandalley. So it’s a case of buying what they decide to release at any one time. It’s also a bit inconvenient if those killer heels go on sale during that crucial meeting…
There’s a big difference in what you’re buying, too.
Retailers offer sales for a variety of reasons and occasions, not just at the end of the season. Discounts are often offered as special promotions on new stock.
So, you can get pieces that are still in season by using Love the Sales, whereas Secret Sales, by virtue of their business model, are offering stock that’s slightly dated.
