In addition to regular sale selection, theOutnet also a few other creative shopping alternatives, to keep things interesting. There are: Flash Sales and Going, Going, Gone Sales.
Going, going, gone sales are a little more creative, in a nutshell it is a backward auction. One item (or a few of the same kind of items) is featured at a high starting price. The price decreases every second until someone to grabs the item into their cart and checks out. At this point, if additional items are available the price continues to go down until the next person is ready to pay the displayed price. If this is the last item available the Going, going , gone sale ends.
So far “Going sales” featured high end purses: Bottega Veneta and Chloe. Unfortunately, I didn’t catch the end price for these.
Depending on how many eyeballs are pinpointed to the site during the sale and the interest in the item will determine the price, which is true to the nature of an auction. The more people are interested in the item, the higher will be the price.
theOutnet.com is a fun site, with eye pleasing design, great features and great upscale pieces at lower prices. The best part about it in my opinion is that the items are recent and not from 3 seasons ago.
