Google Offers: Spend $25 to get $50 at Bluefly
Hat tip to Chris for sending in the Style Tip
UPDATE: Looks like Bluefly jacked some prices up on items overnight. For example, the OP t-shirts are now $18 and a solid no thanks at that price. Apologies for that one guys. It happens… $25 for $50 deal is still going on though.
Remember when Groupon refused to sell to Google? Right. So, Google went and did their own thing. It’s called “Google Offers,” and they’re offering a $25 for $50 deal to the designer web outlet BlueFly. Here’s the details:
- Must spend $50 to use the deal.
- Limit 1 per household
- They say it can’t be used in conjunction with other deals/codes/etc…
Prices in red show the total cost after the $25 gift certificate is applied, and before shipping kicks in. There’s a lot of stuff on Bluefly’s site, so much so that it can get a little numbing just digging around. Picks had a wide variety of sizes available at post time.
OP Heather Polo – $39.00 + Abboud Pocket Squares – $15.00 = $29
The Penguin polo (currently) has all sizes left and looks like it comes in their extra soft jersey cotton. The Abboud pocket square trio has a blue and white gingham in there, which comes in extra handy at this time of year. Orange and blue check would be a nice offset to a navy cotton blazer and dark wash jeans.
OP thermal – $22.79 + Calvin Klein Reversible Belt – $28.00 = $25.79
Lots of Original Penguin stuff here, but that’s what happens when you’re on the low end of the designer price spectrum. Thermals are great for weekends at home when even a sweater seems like too much. The belt should be pretty versatile, with a slim and subtle buckle.
Will Leather Goods Drawstring Tote – $58.00 = $33
Some guys will see a tote with less structure as a more manly bag. Others will think it looks like a woman’s hobo purse (ladies? That a hobo-like bag here?). Whatever, you put stuff in it, you’ll get it from point A to B, and it’s made in Eugene, Oregon. Was pushing $100.
Theory Tie – $32.99 + Purple and Grey Penguin T-shirts $10.79 per = $29.57
Hard to argue with the made in the USA tie (unless 2.5″ is too slim for you) and while the tees are in fact graphic tees, the penguin gets a pass. Especially when it’s these colors, easy to layer, and the graphic shouldn’t show too much if you’ve got something on top.
Question: When was the last time you purchased any type of deal? Groupon, Living Social, etc… Leave it all below. Meanwhile, the Google $25 for $50 offer at BlueFly is on sale through Thursday and must be used by 9/12/12.
