The shopping savvy know about Reebonz, the special members-only site that holds private sales of luxury and lifestyle items. Premier brands at discounted prices, in a nutshell.
I've been a member for a while, and from time to time, I get email from Rebecca Tan who keeps me apprised of the latest deals. It's like having a shopaholic friend who tells you about happening closed-door sales! Sales at which you don't have to throng with rabid crowds and manic aunties. And it's not just Prada, Marc Jacobs, Dior, Gucci, Coach, Ted Baker and such. Sometimes we get KitchenAid, and items for the home or kids. The sales are quickies though, they usually last just a couple of days.
In conjunction with its second birthday, Reebonz is relaunching its City portal with a whole week's worth of city-living highlights in "The City and Me" celebration. From 7 to 13 March 2011, Reebonz City will unveil some of the best in lifestyle trends and experiences. Each day you will see a treat dedicated to one of the sectors below.
RETAIL: enter the world of fashion and beauty for a spot of retail therapy.
E.g. Special deal with GloMinerals Starter Kit complete with loose powder, concealer, kabuki brush, consultation and makeover.
DINING: explore culinary treasures from plush restaurants to hidden rustic gems.
E.g. A specially prepared menu at Amici Italian Restaurant in Holland Village. This is something I must check out! Have heard good things about Amici, but need to make a journey to the West for this!
HEALTH & WELLNESS: enervate yourself with studio workouts or blissful spa treatments.
E.g. A detoxification programme at Body Inc, a holistic wellness spa founded by Jacelyn Tay.
TRAVEL: experience carefully selected sanctuaries, resplendent interiors and breathtaking landscapes.
E.g. A 2D1N package transporting you to the old world charms of Thailand.
So those are just some of the deals that urbanite Rebecca Tan has earmarked for "The City and Me" celebration. She and the team of Reebonz City "curators" voraciously comb the city for coveted services, luxury deals and extraordinary events. They negotiate offers for its members, and act as a bridge between consumers and good deals.
And now, just for "The City and Me" week, you get two special promotions:
1. Purchase a deal and stand a chance to win all of the experiences above!
2. Sign up for the newsletter and get to win a Resorts World Sentosa Weekend Stay for 2 and Universal Studios Weekend Express Pass for 2!
Reebonz is on Facebook too. Like them and see more. They are giving away something when they hit 10,000 likes (now at more than 9,000). They are on Twitter as well, with more than 6,000 followers! Rebecca is going to start her own Twitter account too, just for Reebonz City. Catch her on http://twitter.com/ReebonzCityGirl
So mark your calendars for 7 to 13 March, for that's when "The City and Me" comes alive!
