I don't know anyone who doesn't love a deal. And I'd be willing to bet that these days, most of your inboxes are overrun with Groupon, LivingSocial, CrowdCut, Gilt Groupe, Rue La La, and Shop It To Me emails (and I'm sure there's more)!
But sometimes you just don't need 72 percent off another house cleaner or random laser clinic offer. What would really get our engines revving are deals at the best local, high-end boutiques here in town. Ta-da! Now we have it. Swag52, which is curated by Beauty Bets blogger and writer Elizabeth Dehn and Style Architects founder Christina Holm-Sandok, are bringing you great deals on some of the best local retailers. Sign up for weekly emails, which profile the shop and the deal and showcase Dehn and Holm-Sandok's picks. Then, go shop. It's that easy!,
Currently on offer is $60 for $80 of merchandise at high-end office supply shop Russell + Hazel, but to give you an idea of the caliber of shops, we're talking about places like but MartinPatrick3, Ladyslipper, and Bumbershute. Yes, really! Here's another great perk: the certificates never expire, and you can also easily give them as gifts (your giftee never has to know you got a deal).
Maybe you'd seen earlier incarnations of Swag52 this past year—but it's been revamped and now it's rolling with dynamo deals. Keep your eye out, because they'll soon be adding spas and restaurants to the already-luxe mix.
