My favorite shopping event of the year is finally here. This weekend, which kicks before Thanksgiving with some retailers, provides some of the best deals we will see. Traditionally, this is the weekend where most retailers cross over from red to black, and they will do whatever it takes to earn your shopping dollars. Offers are competitive, because almost every retailer will have one. I will update this every time I see an incredible offer through Cyber Monday, so this list will grow over the week. My tastes might vary from yours, so make sure you sign up for emails from all of your favorite retailers. It is also a good idea to check multiple blogs and sites to see what each of them feel is worth mentioning this season. Most of these offers go out to all customers. Of course, there might be some affiliate exclusives or offers targeted to select customers. I am not listing any small offers, because this is the time of year when we can stretch our budget further by scoring just the right deal. Some big offers will not make the cut either, because I cannot list them all.
Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894 when Grover Cleveland (some dispute giving him credit) declared we needed an annual celebration of workers and their achievements. This was during the height of the Industrial Revolution, so employees were really making an impact on the economy. It was not uncommon for workers to endure 12 hour shifts, seven days a week. No one was immune, not even children. Since weekends did not exist for these workers, Labor Day was a welcome and extremely brief reprieve for our ancestors who brought us into a new millennium. Though must of us do not have the work ethic of our forefathers, and thank goodness for that because there is more to life than earning money, Labor Day is still an important part of our society.
Fabletics hosted a Flash Sale from 07/19/16 through 07/21/16. This was held a year after their first Flash Sale. The flash sale offered 50-70% off to celebrate a million subscribers. I was unaware there were that many subscribers, but the ability to skip months will likely keep me subscribed for a long time. Having new quality workout gear at great prices is amazing. These items are so well made that I cannot see the need to select a new one every month. By the 12th month, your first outfit will likely still be in great shape. Unless you like to switch up your outfits a lot, you will not need to partake in the mostly selection. Waiting for the sale is a great time to shop, unless you crave the latest and greatest outfits. Getting ones at a discount that did not sell out in their monthly offerings is perfect for me.
The 2016 event started 07/19/16 for VIP Gold members and wrapped 07/21/16. Sale items only appear once you’re signed in. It was only a year ago that they celebrated their first flash sale, and now they’re celebrating 1 million subscribers.
Fabletics conducted its first ever Flash Sale in July 2015. VIP members already get great prices on workout gear, but the sale offered the best prices I’ve seen so far. I told myself going in that I was only going to order one or two outfits, but I ended up with three. Why are they all so cute! Check my Fabletics page for all available offers. This one opened to VIP Gold members on 07/21/15 and VIP members on 07/22/15. There was a surprise extension on the 23rd.
