Little Black Bag (or "LBB" for short) is a discount shopping website that a friend introduced to me. The site is basically modeled after Japanese "Lucky Bags", where people buy mystery grab bags and trade items with their friends. How LBB works is as follows:
1) You pick a starting item from LBB's extensive gallery of bags, jewelry, accessories, and make-up. Brands include Betsey Johnson, BCBG, Steve Madden, Kenneth Cole, and more.
2) LBB then populates your "bag" (which is basically your shopping cart) with two mystery products which are revealed after you check out. You bag will total over $100 to start.
3) After you check out, you have seven days to trade the items in your bag with other LBB users. You can trade up, down, and/or laterally for items that you want.
In my last LBB I managed to trade my items for two handbags, a pair of sunglasses, and a necklace, valued at over $250. Not bad for $59.99 plus shipping ($49.99 if you sign up for their subscription plan). LBB has an excellent return policy that either refunds your money or provides exchange credit for a future purchase. When I received a broken necklace a few months back, they credited my account without me having to ship it back!
As someone who tries to get more out of less, I would highly recommend Little Black Bag. Not only have I gotten quality items for myself, I've also found some great presents for friends and family. These next few months, I will definitely use the site for my Christmas shopping!
I believe LBB is currently offering a promotion of 10% off your first
bag with code FACEBOOK10. Also, today only LBB will add an extra item
to your bag valued at around $50 with code DAILYBUZZ.
