The daily deal sites are popping up like crazy lately!  Another new site, Gilt, is hitting the scene and giving everyone that signs up $20 off their first purchase.  You must use this link to get the $20 bonus and make sure you see the image above on the sign up page so that you are in the right place.

Quickly searching there are a few items that are $20 or less so this could be at the least a quick freebie!  Your $20 can be applied toward shipping costs!!

(If you don’t see anything tonight just wait, all the lower priced items are getting hit hard but better deals will come when things quiet down.)

    • Carlene

      Just signed up but I do not see anything under credits ??

      • It took about 10 minutes for mine to show up.

      • KatieMac

        It took about 5 minutes for mine to show up. But they did appear.

        When one of these sites comes up that I'm not familiar with, I use a prepaid debit card with just like $5 on it, so that I don't worry about my credit card getting scammed. :)

    • Astrickla2

      I just signed up…no credit

    • Andieandmac

      Just got 2 new childrens books with audio! Used both emails, joined twice, didn't pay a dime! Shipping was subtracted from the credit too!

      The credit will be subtracted after you put something in the cart!

      • Athena

        How did you do that???

        • If you order something cheap enough it'll be free – the $20 comes off your total amount owed, not the actual item's cost. I ordered a $13 item and paid $.95 the second time I ordered. You can join under different email addresses and use the credit in each account, but I only did it twice. Sometimes I just feel like yes it's free, but don't abuse the system LOL! I get so much for free already I like to leave some for others :)

    • Rachel

      my credit didnt “show” up, but if you add something into your cart and 'proceed to checkout' it automatically comes off your order…I got a cute summer outfit for my son for $0.95!

    • Joan Wood

      got a pair of gloves. thanks

    • Kendra Brown

      Invites 10 friends to get free shipping plus $20 credit = a Christmas present of a nice nutcracker ($29) for $9 shipped. Great gift during nut-cracking holidays! And I love that my Mom just said how she doesn't have one anymore!

      • Rclay18

        I invited 10 friends, but when I started to check out the free shipping did not show up. My $20 credit did, but not the free shipping. Am I missing something?

        • leigh

          the same thing happened to me. anyone find a “fix” ??

    • Julie

      Just FYI, it looks like the credit has an expiration date – in my account it says December 10

    • Kristen

      Got a shirt for my daughter – $2.95!

    • wendy

      Thanks! I got one of the coloring sets for $.95. It's got an extended delivery date, so hopefully it comes before Christmas!

    • tarheelbaby1

      Thanks! I just ordered a hardback book for my daughters.

    • kristi

      when does the credit show up in your account?

    • Terenanic

      This looks dead. I created an account but it shows $0 credit in my account.

      • Rclay18

        Did you put anything in your cart? My credit showed up when I started to check out. I still can't get the free shipping to show up though.

      • Terenanic

        okay, I just scrolled down to read comments. After you add the item and go to checkout, it shows up. Thanks everyone!

    • Mceccofiglio

      I did an account under myself and one under my husband….I was able to get 4 books shipped for my son for perfectly free!! Thanks a Million Jenny!! :O)

    • Jennifer C.

      When does my credit expire??

    • andrea

      Thanks for the post. I just bought a $46 indoor/outdoor kids playtent for just $11. I love getting great Christmas presents for a fraction of the cost. :)

    • Aya_nz

      I signed up and if you invite 10 friends to join you get free shipping on your first order. Just got a boxed set of 5 Golden Books and a stuffed animal to use in a baby gift for $0.00 shipped :)

    • Mccormack01

      I dont know what I am doin wrong here but i have set up 4 accounts ( different email adds ) and havent goting any credits on any of the :((((((

      • Jennifer

        I had to sign out and sign back in for the credit to show up. It didn't show up immediately for me anyway.

    • S_CarolinaGirl

      Just got a set of 4 stemless wine glasses for $0.95! Merry Christmas to me! =)

    • Ablake4

      This was an awesome deal. Entered mine and husband names with separate emails and got 2 $20 deals..thanks so much

    • BeccaT

      Is anyone else worried about giving a credit card # to these new websites/companies?… Even though my purchase is free with the promotion, I still had to give a credit card #….Maybe I'm just paranoid..?!

      • AH

        I got a free bag a free shirt… use both me and my bf's email and cards. But still I am kind of worried too..

      • Athena

        YEAH, lol I was in the same thought….I think they want to validate that you live in the US but you would think that it is none of their business as far as your cc#….We shall see…

      • Heather

        Got an empty [or almost empty] Visa gift card lying around? Use that. Or, go get a gift card and put $10 or so on it and use that. I've been using the same gift card for well over a year on things just like this. :]

      • GS

        Gilt is an awesome website. I have used my American Express many times here over the last year and a half with no problem. In the name of peace of mind the prepaid card is a good idea. OR refer your friends and get a $25 credit if they buy something and then “buy” for free :) I got two gorgeous wine decanters from friend credits this am! :)

      • CHS

        Gilt has been around since 2007 and I have purchased a couple of items from them with no problem at all. I think that one of the co-founders is originally from Charleston, SC, which is fun!

    • Jonesmadelinee

      Thank you! Just got 2 free books and a free shirt !! :D

    • Freemn4

      I used the $20 for a 1 year magazine subscription to “Real Simple”. It cost $0.01 for shipping. Thanks!

      • amanda s

        Where did you find the magazine at…can't find it anywhere on the site!!!

      • amandas

        nevermind, just found it-thanks!!

      • Addy

        does anybody else think that SHIPPING for a magazine that they do not send to you every month kind of weird??

    • Tiff

      Where does the free shipping discount show up?

    • hannah

      Thank you sooo much for posting this! And to the person who mentioned Real Simple, I love that magazine, but can't justify paying for it! Thanks also the the person with the idea of using a prepaid credit card, that worked great. Yay for awesome free things.

    • mommyx6

      that was a fun one, super easy and you have to put the item in your cart & then proceed to checkout to see the credit. SCORE!!! Thanks

    • Sara

      Just got my Niece and My dog :) a Christmas present for a total of $0. Thanks this was fun!

    • Lisam

      There is now a waiting list to join…

    • jrun

      I got a large cardboard castle that comes w/ markers to decorate. this will be a great craft project for me and my boys and they can use it for all their little men once it's put together. Not something i would usually spend that much on, but w/ shipping was only .95.

    • Pam

      I ordered a book for my little granddaughter, The Sleepy Little Alphabet, and it was free (including shipping). Thank you!!

    • Raynesmw

      Awesome deals!! I ordered a set of Ramona books for my third graders to listen to. We are going to see a play on Ramona next week, so this will fit in perfectly. They have a book, Petunia, that was out of print for a while. That is an awesome deal. That is a great book for teaching kids the importance of knowing how to read. Thanks, Jenny!

    • Acaldwellgovols

      You can sign up but they are not giving the credit anymore

      • put something in your cart and see if you got the credit, it's still giving them out!!

      • TLN

        I just signed up and at the checkout I got the credit, so they are still doing it.

    • Jeanne

      I just signed up and got nothing as well. :(

      • LadySiren

        I thought the same thing but then went ahead and put something in my cart, and headed to the checkout. Voila – my $20 credit showed up. Worked like a dream. :)

        • Jeanne

          I just tried putting something in my cart. Nothing…oh well..I guess I will have to miss out on this one.

          • LadySiren

            Did you try going to checkout? I just tried it again using the husband's email and it worked fine for me.

    • Wow, I just got the credit and got a really great book for my mom for Christmas, paid $1.95 after the $20 credit! THANK YOU!!!

    • Tsett

      Awesome! I just ordered Tiffany's Manners for Teenagers for Free! I was an $11 item.

      Shipping is about $8.

      They also had nice wine glasses and tumblers for about $13

    • Jeanne

      How did you get the credit? I signed up and got nothing!

      • melanie

        Try putting something in your cart and when you go to checkout, the $20 credit will show up then.

    • LadySiren

      Lovely, thank you! I got a Junie B. Jones boxed set for one of my girls for Christmas. Yay!

    • Fernetaylor-emery

      I got a little over 100 dollars worth of bakeware (retail price before Gilt Discount) for 43 dollars and that includes shipping. One of the bakeware items was $22, so that was only $2. I've been wondering what to get my friend for a shower gift, and I found it here. Awesome!

    • Evie

      Just used this link and it was great. I found a Kenneth Cole watch for my hubby for Christmas that retailed at about $115 and with the $20 off I only paid $47 total including shipping UPS. Thank you Jenny for this post…he will be total shocked.

    • Yanteks

      Incredible deal – thanks so much Jenny for blessing all of us with fabulous savings and deals. I pray God richly blesses you and your family for your outpouring and hardwork day in and day out!

    • Meguardo

      I got a old school Baber book for my daughter for Christmas….and paid well NOTHING:) Thanks Jenny!

    • sunset

      Thank You Jenny So Much! Bought a box set of Junie B. Jones books for my daughter for .95 cents!

    • Jamie

      Is anyone getting an error message when you try to sign back in to your account? It keeps telling me the password doesn't match, but it does, and I tried it several times.

      • Fernetaylor-emery

        Jamie, I'd try to close your server and try again. I got the error a few times and then tried again, and it was fine.

    • Bryarsmom

      Pat the Bunny :)

      Free-they owe me a $1.05 credit.

    • Livserge331

      They're still giving this out. Most of the cheap stuff is wiped out, and a lot of the kids' things I was interested in for Christmas gifts to my nieces and nephews don't have the right sizes left. But I managed to find a $25 t-shirt in a 2T, and I gave them 10 emails to get the $7.95 shipping waived. So $5 for a really cute shirt shipped to my house is not bad at all :)

    • Guest

      Awesome! I got a Bug tent crawl playhouse for a Christmas gift. The thing looked HUGE!!! I paid 11.95 TOTAL!!! Thanks so much!!!!

    • Bamabobbie

      Well, just called and customer service said that this could only be purchased through MTV?? web site??? So don't know what happened in the last 30 minutes.

    • jess

    • Voldoll27

      Thanks Jenny!! My 2 yr old little girl loves the Cat In The Hat show on TV, and I just got her the audio collection for Christmas for FREE!!!!

    • Courtney Taylor

      Free champagne glasses for Christmas Gift for a cousin – THANK YOU Jenny! :) Merry Christmas! :)

    • Bamabobbie

      Please tell me how you got the $20. After joining I did not the the $20. credit. Thanks

      • once you put an item in your cart and go to check out it will do it automotically :)

        • Jesslynn41

          It didn't do it automatically when I went to checkout…am I missing something? I made sure that when I signed up I saw the $20 credit ad…?

    • Marianne

      Woo-hoo! I just scored a boxed set of the Junie B Jones books for my daughter – paid just 95 cents!! Thanks, Jenny!

    • Cherrylynnbailey

      just got my teapot for 4.95 yeah!!!

    • Angelpiekab

      what the heck? i have my 2 items in cart totaling 20.00 and i did the 10 email invites for free shipping but it is not taking the shipping off… is there a catch? it says select from drop-down box but there is no drop-down at checkout. ugh help

      • Courtney Taylor

        That happened to me too… since you have the item in your cart now – click up top and invite 10 more people. Then it will take the shipping off. I don't know why it doesn't work the first time, but when I tried this way, it worked. Hope that helps. :)

    • Kimstar47

      It didnt work for me, even when I went to checkout

    • Jesslynn41

      It didn't work for me either. My order total is $17.95, and it shows no $20 credit. :(

    • Atarget

      I didn't get the account credit today when I registered. I emailed gilt and they said the promo was over. Did anybody get the credit when they registered today?
