Who does it: Swirl, which launched in November, won't disclose its member count. Enrollment is free at swirl.com

How it works: DailyCandy's partner site was created to showcase up-and-coming designers at up to 80% off. Sales start at 11 a.m. ET and last 24 to 72 hours.

But as with many online sample sales, stylist Lynne Curtis cautions buyers to read the fine print first: returns can typically only be made for credit, or not at all. That that can be problematic with items that can't be tried on before you buy.

Secret strategy: DailyCandy subscribers are eligible for special benefits, including discounts like $20 off a purchase of $50 or more or access to a sale an hour before its start.

What you find: Cult favorites like American Apparel, Ray-Bans, Chaiken, Loeffler Randall and Tom Ford.

Ultimate score: This Mara Hoffman dress (pictured) was $990, but is currently on sale for $259.
