The season of friends and family sales is on its way, and these three in particular are well worth waiting for: Bloomingdale's, Saks and Neiman Marcus Last Call. Once an exclusive situation that requited a friend in the biz and a piece of paper in hand, nowadays everyone and their mother does the sales. But these three are special and worth any elbowing that might be necessary to get at the goods because you can score rare discounts on designer items that almost never go on sale. Check out our sister site for all the deets. [Racked]
