1. ZULILY: This is my favorite flash sale site.12+ NEW sales each day & low prices on clothes,toys, gear, & great maternity stuff too. Amazing customer service (but do call, emailing doesn't always get a response.) Lowest stroller prices anywhere. Brands featured include: Hanna Andersson, Tea Collection, American Girl, Oilily, Under Armour, Hatley, Jacadi, Primigi, Umi, Toms, Keen and See Kai Run shoes. Wood and metal balance bikes from $45. Car seats, ride-on toys, and cool wood toys including Plan Toys, Wishbone, Haba, Kid O, Boikido, Anatex. Also Lego, Plasmacar, Star Wars toys, Kettler, Radio Flyer, Barbie, Melissa & Doug, Alex toys. Literally hundreds of top-level brands every month. If you order often, check out their "unlimited" yearly flat rate shipping, which is $49/yr. Zulily periodically features Mini Boden at 35% to 50% off, and Mini Boden vouchers ($35 gets you $50 worth of anything Boden.)

3. JANE:A new flash sale site!! Super cute kids clothing, home decor items, and lots and lots of unique gifts. Jane has lots of flattering, low-priced clothing items on every day. Some are tailored to moms and dads (my son and I got some adorable matching "Mama Bear" and "Little Bear" t-shirts for instance.) and many are trendy seasonal pieces. Jane is big on matching 'mommy & me' items, and has featured 'daddy & me' matching ties. They also have a lot of reclaimed wood decor items (wine racks, shelving, etc...) which go along nicely with the industrial style I am into right now. Jane is still very new, but their customer services is excellent - they are very responsive. Shipping may take a while - like Zulily, my purchases typically seem to arrive in about 3 weeks from the time I order them.

3. HAUTE LOOK:Owned by Nordstrom, this is another of the biggest and best known flash sale sites. Fast shipping. They have a few kids sales per day and feature brands including Hatley, Tea Collection, The North Face, Baby Nay, Splendid Littles, Seven for All Mankind - boys, girls and layette - Okkies, C & C Kids, Pure Baby Organics, Twigs & Twirls, Alice & Olivia, Geox shoes, JB Original Vintage, Zutano, Kartoons Kataloons, Harajuku Lovers kids, and LA Made, Da-nang Kids, Paulinie, Schoenhut Musical Instruments, Frye Boots, Joe's Jeans and Baby Lulu. Awesome customer service too.

4. GILT KIDS: Most people don't know Gilt has an awesome kids section. Best selection of high-end designer children's clothing, maternity & toys each day. Fast shipping. Gorgeous upscale lines, no junk - Some amazing deals with their special promotions but some prices still very high. Brands include: Tea, Seven for All Mankind, Llum, Jacadi, One Kid, D&G Kids, Juicy Couture, Primigi, Baby Lulu, Ergo Carriers, Hunter Boots for kids and for women, Morgan & Milo, Gold Rush, Dogwood, Wonderboy, Morfs, Bedding & decor from The Land of Nod, and Tegu Blocks. This site has a Neiman Marcus feel. Tons of great maternity clothing. Many sales on Phil & Ted and Maclaren strollers. This site has the best prices on Tegu blocks that I've found online too! In December 2014 I got an original 52-piece set for only $55 with free shipping! Their holiday, pre-Christmas promotions are the best time to shop Gilt for some incredible price promos.

5. RUE LA LA: Brands include: Mountain Buggy, Geox, Catimini, Tea Collection, D&G, Gucci, Twirls & Twigs, Juicy Couture, Life is Good, Fendi, Primigi, Anatex, 191 Kids, Boumy, Little Traveler, Kettler bikes - trikes - wagons, Alex Toys, Wonderworld Toys, Stuart Weitzman Kids, Bungalow BeBe, One Kid, Paigelauren, Oilily, Puma, and Charlie Rocket.
Rue regularly features Mini Boden credit vouchers - $35 gets you $50 worth of Boden credit AND you can combine that with Boden's own promotions and sales for an amazing deal. (My husband works for Rue so I get advance notice of all sales. Check my facebook page for advance notice of the Boden sales in particular).

6. THRED UP ($10 off your first order automatically applies): This one is not *actually* a flash sale site but it's a great place to bargain shop. Gently used clothing rather than new. Many, many pieces in all the best brands -
Janie and Jack, Mini Boden, Catimini, Oilily, Hanna Andersson, Tea and more. You can search by age, size, brand, etc... And don't forget about Nike! Got my son a pair of New Nike high tops for under $18 recently! Even at the outlets they are $40 to $50 so I was thrilled. They also have plenty for women including gently used handbags. Pick up some gems from Gucci, Kate Spade, Prada, Marc, Jacobs, etc.

Featuring Hunter boots for adults and kids, Geox, Taggies, Boikido & other cool wood toys, and lots of nice women's brands including Coach, Kate Spade and Marc Jacobs. I'm new to this site so I have not ordered from them yet. This site also has Hunter Boots often on sale for under $100!

Another primarily home centered flash sale site with some kids sales. A broad range of styles are showcased, with a Crate and Barrel or Pottery Barn feel. More cool pet flash sales too, including beds by Majestic Pet (practically indescructible beds with beautiful stylish patterns and colors, these are the beds I always buy for our dog).
