This is a sponsored post. Although we are partnering with Rue to get the word out on their great sales, it’s important to note that nobody can buy our opinion on Ciao Bambino. We only endorse things we believe in and Rue La La is a resource I use all the time. For good reason …
If you like and appreciate luxury hotels (who doesn’t) than a Rue La La membership is a must. It’s free – unless you find something fabulous to buy – and gives unprecedented discounts on the luxury brands we love.
CB contributor Nancy Solomon first turned me on to Rue and I’ve been addicted ever since – from clothes (including kidswear), shoes, furniture, and household goods – you can access all your designer faves here. It’s my go-to spot for holiday and birthday shopping as I can get people incredible gifts within a budget.
Rue Travel – where they offer luxury hotel packages at a discount – is a travel planning no-brainer as sales are value-packed. The actual discount fluctuates, but many sales offer 25 to 30% off retail pricing, a significant savings.
The Rue travel team hand selects everything they showcase so you know you are getting quality options and the validity dates usually extend a few months so you enough time to plan, as we all know true last-minute vacations are impossible when you have kids. Featured hotels and resorts are in destinations all over and if you keep an eye on Rue sales, you can get away to a huge variety of places for less.
At this point most of the sales aren’t family-focused, but they are definitely parent-friendly for romantic trips, girlfriend getaways … whatever. Plus, buying in a sale is a great reason to get a rejuvenating escape on the calendar. There’s no excuse not to go given the discounted pricing!
We Know A Secret
Upcoming sales at Rue are totally hush hush until the official preview four days before the event. Poshbrood, Luxury Travel Mom and I know about an upcoming awesome sale for parents who want to experience an outrageous Caribbean getaway sans les enfants! The sale will be a substantial discount at a luxe beach resort and includes meals.
MARK YOUR CALENDAR: All Rue sales go live at 11a EST and this one is set for July 16th! We’ll be able to share all the juicy details on July 12th …
You buy certificates for travel deals on Rue and don’t have to commit to exact dates at the time of purchase. There is a validity period and although the sale is based on open inventory, rooms are booked on a first come first serve basis. Once you buy into a travel sale, it’s best to confirm travel dates ASAP.
It’s easy – there’s no smoke and mirrors here. Exact terms and conditions are clearly laid out for each sale.
Step one is to become a member, it’s truly a luxury traveler must.
