Last week I wrote about an offer where new accounts can receive a $20 credit to the online deal website Gilt.com. To receive the $20 credits you must sign up from a referring member and then there is no minimum order required. Find a $20 item it is literally free!
With that being said, some orders are being cancelled, but many are going through. I am not 100% sure why the cancellation. It could be for a variety of reasons, including the item was no longer in stock, abuse of the system (creating too many accounts), or something else. Either way, if you are not yet a member to Gilt, you might as well get your free $20 and get something! I personally ordered a kids toy for my daughter after creating a new account for my husband who was not yet a member. The status of my order says that it has shipped.
You’ll notice while searching for an item and adding it to your cart, it tells you that you have $20 credits available. The $20 credits can be applied to not only the discounted cost of the item, but also tax and shipping which is great! There is no minimum purchase required for the $20 credit to be applied! You can sign up for Gilt.com with the $20 credits here.
While shipping is a flat $7.95, IF you use Masterpass to pay at checkout you MIGHT get free shipping by adding promotion code MPFREE. MasterPass (which is similar to Visa Checkout) essentially stores your credit card info and allows you to pay with any credit card (it does NOT need to be a MasterCard). Just select the MasterPass option at checkout and if you do not already have a MasterPass account you will need to create one. You can check out the success of other users at Dans Deals. Some are able to get it to work, others are not. You must change from the UNLIMITED shipping option to the STANDARD shipping option. And if an unlimited shipping option is not there, then the free shipping definitely won’t work (which is the case with some of the toy brands). Even if you cannot get the free shipping to work, you can still find some pretty cheap items. I personally ended up buying four Sesame Street books that cost me a total $0.95.
