Love Sales

We have recently come across a new website that we just LOVE for home interiors inspiration at affordable prices. Have you ever seen something in a shop that you just love but then you see the price tag and are disappointed that the item is above your budget? Maybe you think 'I will be sure to come back in a few weeks to see if I could get it in the sale'.

Personally, I do this all the time. In fact, I email myself links and set reminders on when to check on the availability of an item or when a sale has started, if I could get the item for a bit less. The problem is sometimes I forget or the item has already gone on sale and been snapped up by someone else!

What LoveSales have created is an extremely useful shopping tool for people with a passion for design and style, who are savvy about their spending. Have a look at this humorous cartoon explanation of how the website works (and how it can do wonders for your relationship, too, it seems)!

From their Press Release:

LoveSales launches the latest evolution in the online sales aggregation space, offering a fully responsive digital tool designed to make discounted online shopping a more immersive and interactive experience than ever before.

The site is a culmination of three years' technical development of a dynamic database tracking price movements and sales anouncements from leading retailers. This allows LoveSales to offer a full service in online sales aggregation, including user-driven price drop alerts as well as a completely personalised daily updates on the latest sales from top brands across the LoveSales network and beyond.

Unique Features include:

  • A daily handpicked selection of the very best sale items identified across the hundreds of LoveSales brand partners known as the 'Sales Feed'
  • An email alert feature ensuring users are the first to know every time a 'Favourite' brand launches a sale
  • A 'Latest Sales' feed offering a central place to browse all brands that currently have sale activity, favourite or not
  • A personal wish list feature, allowing users to 'Pin' items from any website to their 'LoveSales List', tagging each with an alert feature to ensure users are alerted when product drop in price or go on sale
  • A Pinterest style 'My List' means items from any brand or website will be organised i none place. Users can create collections of items and organise products based on items, outfits or personal occasions
  • A fully responsive retail experience, offering a desktop browser button as well as add by email or paste product link product adding mechanisms for when browsing on mobile
  • LoveSales is 100% free and easy to use. The personalisation features and wish list elements require users to either sign up via email or alternatively using Facebook.

The brand was only launched in May 2014 so it is a brand new website and a truly innovative idea.

We have given the website a quick go and we can honestly say that we love it so far! We have downloaded both the desktop button and it works well on mobiles too, although the mobile app is not yet available.

As a brief overview on how to use the site, the first thing to do is to add the 'Love Sales Button' to your internet browser tool bar. Just drag the button to your browser to install - it works just like the Pinterest 'Pin it' button. When you see an item that you like when browsing furniture shops online, simply click the Love Sales button to add it to your List. When the item goes on sale, the website will track your products and alert you instantly, so you never miss an offer!

Another good point about the website is that there is no limit to the number of items you can follow, so you could be shopping at all your favourite furniture stores, even on the go (and for us as designers it's great because we can search for our clients, too)!

Basically, the website is like the Pinterst of shopping and just as addictive! What more could a price-savvy home designer ask for?
