Gilt City Deal: $40 for $80 at Park & Bond
Credit will become available on Nov. 1st and must be used by Nov. 30th. Thanks to Antonio for the style tip.
This gets a little complicated, maybe even a tad incestuous, so hang on to your hats here:
- Most of you know this, but Gilt is a daily timed-sale retail site
- They also have a Groupon-like site called “Gilt City”
- Gilt City often runs national deals, so you can use them on the web and not have to live in that location
- Gilt launched a full price store called Park & Bond a few months back
- Gilt’s current Gilt City deal is for $80 in credit at their full retail Park & Bond
So after launching their full price retail sale, Gilt has gone ahead and used one of their own platforms to promote Park & Bond and essentially give you half off any combination of stuff that’s $80.
Add on top of that the fact that you can get 20% off your first Gilt City purchase by signing up through a friend’s referral link (here’s the Dappered one if you need it) and you could get an $80 credit for $32. In theory. Here’s one combination that seems appealing for $32:
The Filson Hat, Tie Bar, & not one but two Pocket Squares – $79.00 pre credit
The hat itself is a deal if you’re looking for something other than a watch cap to keep your head warm. It has ear flaps, just enough brim, and it’s made in the USA. Same goes for the pocket squares. The Tie Bar is a tiny 1″.
But does this deal mean anything more? Is this an in-house attempt to jump-start Park & Bond? Or is it doing just fine on its own and that speculation is over analyzing a simple promotion? Leave your take in the comments below.
Like other Gilt referrals, there’s a bounty. A sign up to Gilt City through a referral link rewards the link provider with 20% off their next Gilt City purchase (pretty sure it doesn’t stack.) But I can’t remember the last time I bought anything from Gilt City. So to those who might think this post was motivated by that, it wasn’t.
