I don’t know about you, but I haven’t ever been a big fan of the flash sale shopping sites like Gilt, Zulily and the like because of the high shipping costs and I hate that you can’t make returns easily.  Gilt charges $5.95 for economy shipping (on any size order it seems) and Zulily starts at $5.95 but the S&H charge slides up as your order grows.  Gilt will only issue store credit if the item is $199 or less and Zulily doesn’t even accept returns on most items.

Imagine my surprise when I just noticed an HauteLook email telling me that shipping is free for orders over $100 and items can be returned without any charges to a Nordstrom Rack! I love it!
