Who would have thought that there would be a host of Summer Solstice sale and events being promoted by stores in 2011? We would never associate today as a big sale event like we do with other times of the year, such as Easter, Christmas and Black Friday. The latter has to be the most famous when it comes to in-store sales, with Cyber Monday coming a close second, although it has started to gain ground.
The first to get in on the Summer Solstice action is Google, which you will know if you visit their homepage, as they have a Doodle. However, some stores have used this opportunity to launch a 24-hour sale. Having said that, one has to wonder if these sales have been going for sometime, but the stores has used today to highlight them?
We could have gone down the same route as some other websites and talk about the big stores offering deals, but why when everyone else is reporting the same thing?
One such store is Old Navy, and they are offering 24 percent off your online order. This will not happen automatically, so you will need to enter code SOLSTICE24 once you are at the checkout. Another deal is free shipping on each order over $50.
Another Summer Solstice sale is from Pipistrelle who is giving customers 30 percent off at the checkout. Again you will need to add a code; this time you need to enter SOLSTICE30 to receive your discount. These deals can be found on the Etsy website.
If you are in the market for vintage goods, then you will need to check out the Clever Nettle website. We love how they are honest when they say that the sale is on to get rid of old stock ready for few products to come in. We have seen a pattern with these deals that we have looked at, as they are getting lower. This one only gives you 20 percent off, but it’s better than a kick in the teeth.
In a way to say sorry for these deals getting lower we have dug around and found someone officering 50 percent off – it’s like a mini Black Friday. The website in question is Renderosity, and you had better act fast, as the sale ends today. However, there are other hot savings to be made for the next two weeks.
We do hope that you find these deals of interest and beats all the usual ones that we you bombarded with?
