5 Sample Sales In L.A. To Check Out Before Your Summer Travels

Save money on the essentials. Spend the rest on vacation.

How is it that whenever it comes time for your next summer excursion, there’s always a list of things to get beforehand (despite how many trips you’ve taken.) When it comes to vacations, saving money where you can is crucial and sample sales are a great way for people looking to get some of the hottest brands at a fraction of the price.

Sample sales are generally something that retailers have when they want to get rid of excess merchandise to make room for a new collection. We’ve made a list of all of the sample sales happening this month that you’re surely going to want to hit up before that 10-hour flight to the tropics. From summertime flip flops to long-lasting luggage, ditch breaking the bank before take-off by getting in on of some of the best discounts happening in the city!
