Women spend countless hours and days and most of your money hunting for deals on designer-brand clothing and accessories. The odds are pretty good that you’ve been driven over the edge on several occasions thanks to day-long trips to the local mall. What if there was a way that your girl could easily get the best deals on the hottest apparel and accessories without wearing your patience and wallet thin? Ideeli is just that. In a nutshell, Ideeli provides web and SMS alerts notifying lucky ladies of high-end designer products or lines as they go on sale on the site. The date and time of each sale is withheld until just before it starts and sales are first come, first serve a la woot.com. Premium members are given a one-hour head start as a thank you for their $8/month membership fee. Standard membership is free. Ideeli’s web service launched earlier this year and is currently invite only, too. With the recent completion of a funding round the service may become more accessible in the near future, but for the time being, you’ll have to find a current member to get your hands on an invite.
