Obsession of the Day – MYHABIT.com

HOT DEAL: Use code “SUMMER25” to get $25 OFF your order! Expires 8/01

I have a new online shopping crush which I just have to share with you – MYHABIT.com, Amazon’s new private fashion sale site offering up to 60% off hand-picked styles from designer & boutique brands featuring apparel, shoes, jewelry and accessories for men, women and children. I know sample/flash sale websites aren’t exactly new, but as someone who’s a big fan of Endless and Shopbopcj (both owned by Amazon) I was ecstatic to hear Amazon joined the flash sale market because I love the professionalism of Amazon (never had a bad experience with them).


As soon as I got the news I had to check it out and boy was I amazed. Firstly, I was very pleased with the selection of brands and products and the prices were pretty good, too. Then I found out that MYHABIT.com is offering $15 international shipping (delivery time is said to average 2-4 days which is amazing!). Now as someone who is constantly exposed to a ton of great US-based online shops, it’s so hard to find good conditions for international customers and MYHABIT’s $15 flat shipping fee is one of the best shipping offers I’ve seen yet.

But the goodness for international shoppers doesn’t end here because when you reach the checkout page you’ll get an import fee duties calculator so you don’t have to guess what additional taxes or fees might come on top of the order total. I love this feature! It’s so helpful to know! And if for some reason the import fees end up being higher than estimated you won’t have to pay the extra fees.

There’s still more though – like a $25 OFF promo code for example. As soon as I found out about that one I knew I had to make a purchase, if only for the sake of testing out this shop to see if it would live up to my expectations. I was curious to see if the order processing would go as smoothly as I hoped and as I am used by Amazon.

So I took a look around and found a great pair of tan studded gladiator sandals by Boutique 9 which were on sale for $65 (down from $150). I put them in my cart, logged in with my Amazon login info and added the $25 promo code to my order. Luckily, the import fee calculator said no fees were to be expected so the total for these shoes came down to a super steal-worthy $55 (remember the $15 int’l shipping; US customers would’ve gotten these shoes for a friggin’ $40 because of the free shipping option). And MYHABIT.com says I’m gettin my order somewhen between July 20, or July 22, 2011! OMG! Can’t wait for the shoes to arrive! Sorry for gushing, but I’m so amazed with my fine little steal deal. Now let’s just hope the shoes will fit me.

Anyway, let me give you some general info about MYHABIT.com.
