Join it: MyHabit

I know what you're thinking: Another flash sale site?! I must receive at least 15 emails a day from these sites, to the point where I'm considering unsubscribing from those I never shop. And so just as flash-sale fatigue began to set in, along comes MyHabit, which is backed by Amazon and is, by all accounts, a well-oiled machine. Several major winning points: So far, they've had a great mix of designers, leaning heavily on contemporary brands—I've seen Elizabeth & James, Foley & Corinna, Loeffler Randall, Belle by Sigerson Morrison, and Twinkle by Wenlan, among others. They sell these at pretty reasonable prices, and if you use code SUMMER25 now through 8/1, you can take $25 off your order. As an added bonus, shipping is free both ways, and it is fast—I placed an order on Thursday morning and it was waiting for me when I got home from work on Friday. My only criticism of the site is that when you make a return, your credit card isn't refunded; you get a MyHabit store credit, but you can also use it on Amazon or Endless.com, and, if you're like me, that shouldn't be a problem. I also like that there's no perceived exclusivity surrounding the site: If you have an Amazon account, you have a MyHabit account (although if you don't, email me and I'll send you an invite). And speaking of which, items don't sell out nearly as quickly as on the other sites (well, not yet), so shop early and shop often—sales start daily at noon ET and last for 72 hours. Looks like this flash sale site is a habit (or a MyHabit) I won't break anytime soon.
