Flash sales, mystery boxes, group coupons, the thrill of buying at a moment’s notice or getting unexpected delights by mail have all been in the marketing spotlight within the last year.

Nordstrom is used to being the retailer where shopping sprees happen. But sometimes it’s more fun to go on one of your own.

subject to a three-year earn-out.

websites which offer consumers deep discounts on products ranging from
handbags and dresses to houseware and furniture.
