Website: Gilt City

About: Gilt City (part of the Gilt Groupe site) offers local deals on high-end experiences, like classes with famed sommeliers and VIP treatment, like the VIP Package to Miami’s SOBE BubbleQ hosted by Bobby Flay, or exclusive presale tickets to see Florence + the Machine, which sold out both in NYC and San Francisco. In fact, a lot of deals sell out on Gilt City—making it all the more exclusive.

Recent Deals: New York Opera’s Spring Gala for 50% off at $625, and unlimited burgers at The Counter for a month for $98 (sold out).

Honorable Mentions for Luxury:Jetsetter is another private sale resource, this one offering upscale hotels and vacations at up to 50% off retail prices.
