    Too good to be true?

    By Laura Coronado

    Nothing is more disappointing to a bargain hunter than getting burned by a so-called deal, and with recent legal woes (Groupon settled 17 class-action lawsuits in April) an experienced bargainsita can’t help but wonder if daily offerings from companies such as AmazonLocal and LivingSocial are truly a steal or just a waste of money. Not only does one chance misleading expiration dates, but also takes a risk on a participating merchant who may not be able to handle the influx of new customers.

    Fall’s first stand

    It may be difficult to believe now, but the temperature will eventually drop. Prepare your wardrobe for the transition by taking advantage of the special discounts and promotions retailers offer during the long Labor Day weekend. Between now and Sept. 3, receive 25 percent off your entire purchase of regular priced fashion at GlamSquadShop, 5165 S. Fort Apache Road. On the third, visit either HauteChix location (Boca Park and Southern Highlands) to save 25 percent on any item that is red, blue or white.

    Resale Chic

    Don’t be shocked at the idea of buying used clothes. It’s a lot more acceptable than wearing fake fashion, and even less expensive. Secondhand shopping allows you to keep your style unique, save money and do something good for the environment. In Las Vegas, we have a plethora of resale options: vintage and resale boutiques, consignment stores and thrift shops. Each has its own benefits (and annoyances), but all require a certain strategy to ensure your journey is a productive one and results in stylish pieces at bargain-basement prices.

    Three Days of Deals

    Nothing spurs your shopping habit more than a long weekend, especially when retailers are offering patriotic consumers tempting discounts. Happening now at Saks Fifth Avenue in Fashion Show is the store’s first sale of the season. Save 30-40 percent for her, 30 percent for him.

    Avoiding Buyer’s Remorse

    NOTHING SPOILS a day of shopping more than buyer’s remorse. Here are some easy tips to eliminate it from your sprees. Create a budget and stick with it. Overindulgence is probably the No. 1 reason for buyer’s remorse. When making a purchase, pay with cash or a debit card, not a credit card. Going into debt for fashion is foolish.

    Get The Most Out of Designer Shopping

    Outlet shopping is not what it used to be. At its inception, it was comprised of overstock and closeout items from big-name brands and designers. Now, most items featured at an outlet store are produced specifically for it. In other words, the shirt you picked up at the Las Vegas Premium Outlets may have never been for sale at the designer’s boutique. It was made for Polo Ralph Lauren.

    Retailers rescue last-minute shoppers

    Although only a few shopping days remain until the end of the holiday season and the encroaching New Year, if you’re anything like me, your shopping list is probably still incomplete. Don’t fret: Local retailers are more than happy to accommodate by offering last-minute sales and by keeping their doors open late.

    Black November?

    Amazon is attempting to start a retail trend by transforming Black Friday into a monthlong sales event called Black November. Online tech paradise Newegg and discount retailer Wal-Mart have joined in the marketing fun, but so far none of the offers have been very tempting. My advice: Unless you spot a deal you have to get now, hold out for Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Retailers could be saving the best for last.

    Pink is the new black

    More than 192,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected be diagnosed this year, the 25th anniversary of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In October, retailers with a heart have partnered with various foundations designed to aid in breast-cancer research and education, creating limited-edition pink products that give you the “shopportunity” to participate and donate. Here are the best of the best, all of which benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure:
