Seems that the online flash sales are all the rage these days. You know the ones–you get an email announcing the sale that starts and ends at very specific times, usually with deeply discounted pricing. Many think that it’s a new concept. But it really isn’t. It was all started by a French company, vente-privee, in 2001. vente-privee is a members-only online shopping destination in partnership with American Express that offers premium brands at fantastic prices every day. Featuring stunning boutiques with limited-time sales events across high-end fashion, home and lifestyle categories at up to 70% off. I became a member recently.
Every day at 10 AM ET, vente-privee launches exciting new sales events that feature the brands most desired by our members across men’s and women’s fashion, watches, jewelry and accessories, children’s apparel and home décor. These limited-time sales events last for 72 hours and offer members only prices at up to 70 percent off the retail value. For instance, today’s sales include:
- Glassware from one of the premiere glassmakers of the world, Luigi Bormioli
- Tickets for the oldest national ballet company in the world, the Paris Opera Ballet’s Summer Soiree at the Lincoln Center
- Handbags/Luggage from Isabella Fiore
When they say high-end, they mean HIGH END. The site is backed by incredible customer service and expertise , ensuring members have a delightful and seamless experience from start to finish. There are also additional membership benefits exclusively for American Express Card members, such as free shipping on orders over $100.

And, as an added bonus, if you become a member by the end of June, you are eligible to win a grand prize of a $1,000 vente-privee shopping spree or one of four $250 gift cards to use on the site. Check out this quick video that reveals the young, hip culture of the vente-privee.
