If you're familiar with the online shopping website Gilt Groupe, then you probably know that it mostly survives on the likes of Gucci, Missoni, Marc Jacobs, and other designers that grace the floors of Neiman Marcus and Saks. With everything from home to travel to apparel sales, Gilt has become one of the latest trends online.

Lately, the website–which sells designer duds at a major discount–has been circling the realm of REI, with a sale on Snow Peak's sleek camping gear. 

The sales only last for a couple of days–the Snow Peak one ends on the 25th of June–and items go quick. But check out how deep the discounts are:

Here's the catch: You have to be a member to access these sales. And to become a member, you have to be invited.

Here's your chance. Shoot an e-mail to with your e-mail address and we'll invite you to shopping heaven.

And we won't tell if you decide you like a John Varvatos loafer as much as a titanium camping cookset.
