Gilt Groupe is holding a sale on Halston Wednesday.  As many of you know, Halston is also having a sample sale in Soho this week. Sally reader, Deme, did some comparison shopping. She found that she saved nearly double on the goods she bought at the Halston sample sale compared to Gilt.  Here’s her report:

“I bought 2 tops from Halston both for $150 each… one of the tops currently available on Gilt.com (is on sale) for $298 so essentially I got 2 for the price of one.   Plus the tag had $995 written on it so double Yeah!!   The shoe was $95 at the showroom but $178 on Gilt.”

I’ve actually found similar results with other Gilt sales after comparing prices of the sample sales in New York City.  Of course, we both have the luxury of living in the Big Apple where there’s a multitude of sales.  Gilt may have some items on its Halston sale that the sample sale doesn’t offer.  Just two hours into the event, quite a few items were already sold out.  The Gilt Halston sale ends Friday at Midnight ET.

Do you shop on Gilt?  If so, have you done any comparison shopping? Let us know.
