In a world “Like” this and “follow” that, it’s often hard to sift through the online garbage and truly find those subscription services that provide a real bang for the buck. But I can assure you that the following discount home décor and design sites are truly worth the sign up. Not only do they offer incredible discounts on incredible items, the discounts come straight to you via email reminders and Smartphone app notifications–the right to your door kind of service I can appreciate. And to top everything off, they offer great incentives for encouraging your friends and family to sign up. I can personally attest to receiving a Fab.com $25 gift card when just one of my friends subscribed to the service. Now that’s a deal!
I know this may just be scratching the service of great discount design sites, so what are your personal favorites? Share the discount wealth! -Stephanie
