It will fast become your favorite members-only site since it provides exclusive access to designer sales and customized email alerts on all the hottest fashion brands.  My students will love MyPerfectSale because it can act as their personal concierge for finding out when their favorite brands go on sale, instead of me!  MyPerfectSale scours the web on your behalf to find you the best sale.   Too good to be true!
