Unenthused About Gilt Fuse

Here’s the list of upcoming sales so you can see what I mean. I only added one, the Black Halo sale on the 26th, to my calendar.


Luckily the original Gilt is still a winner. Like today for instance, they featured a fantastic pre-fall boot sale that made me drool in a decidedly unladylike manner.

And I was pleased to discover that the invite link and account credit are entirely interchangeable between the two sites.


So in my conclusive opinion, despite my unenthusiastic review of Gilt Fuse, Gilt Groupe is still the top dog when it comes to sample sale sites. Now if only they would hire me as a business strategist…
