ONLINE SHOPPING— Starting today, Gilt is teaming up with Jetson Bike, the line of eco-friendly electric scooters that run on battery and do not require a special license. Gilt's price of $1,599 with shipping is significantly below the original $2,000 for the same deal. Plus, they are introducing a neon pink option for the first time. Do these guys know their customer or what? [Racked Inbox]
ONLINE SHOPPING—Since you're already stocking up on sunscreen, self-tanners, and beach sprays, you might as well do so at Beauty.com. Right now when you spend $75 or more you get a Mara Hoffman specially designed Phoenix bag chock full of sweet samples. As if we needed another excuse to wear sunscreen. [Racked Inbox]
