5 Top Flash Sale Sites In Canada: Shop Now

Flash shopping offers great deals, but you have to move fast—much easier with these sites now in Canada.

Beyond The Rack


SHOPPING AROUND | Fashion-savvy Canadians have long known about flash sales sites like Gilt, Ideeli and Fab, but the hassle of getting their wares home (many do not ship to Canada) has crimped many a deal-hunter’s style. Lucky for us, flash shopping has finally arrived in Canada.

For the uninitiated, flash sales sites are members-only shopping clubs that offer designer fashions and accessories at steep discounts. Memberships are free but sometimes require an invitation, creating an air of exclusivity. The only catch is that you need to act quickly: inventory is limited (usually because a selection is from last season’s stock) and, like the name suggests, sales begin and end in a flash.

5 Top Sites For Canada’s Flashiest Bargains.

Beyond the Rack If you enjoy browsing, you’ll love this site, which can be described as flash sales site meets department store (see their image above). Find everything from mall staple Costa Blanca to higher-end Celine and Ferragamo, with cosmetics, art, linen and luggage to round it out.  Shipping is $11.95 per order. Find your invitation here.

StylehopperStylehopper This site hosts sales just once or twice a week, and sales carry on for up to a week—or even more— at a time. However, like all flash sites, it’s best not to wait too long on a good deal: last week’s Hunter sale was set to last a week, but all their wellies sold out within hours. Free shipping and returns over $50. Get your invitation here.

Privé This Montreal-based site is where to go if you want to set the trends. They seem to specialize in emerging designers and under-the-radar labels but carry a lot of well-known brands too. Looking for a Gestuz shirt to go with your Cheap Monday jeans, both at a fraction of the price? You’ve come to the right place. Invitation only; here’s yours.

Peacock Parade Find a nice mix of affordable designer brands and luxury labels at up to 80 percent off. If you’re in the market for a Prada handbag, you can grab one now for 40 percent off. But if $2,000 bags are not your thing, perhaps some high-waisted James Jeans at $80 will interest you. Free shipping on orders over $150.

Dealuxe This is not strictly a flash sales site. In addition to offering a curated collection of contemporary brands, Dealuxe offers insider deals, exclusive products and a once- weekly limited-time Luxe Deal. From Friday to Sunday, September 22-25, designer handbags from Foley+ Corinna, Rebecca Minkoff and House of Harlow. Shipping and returns are free. —Natasha Muslih

    Just so everyone knows, you have to be careful with these sites in Canada, as some of them like beyond the rack do not ship to remote locations, including all 3 territories. Good luck!

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hey there, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in
    Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you
    a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
