GENERAL

Q: What is a Showcase sample sale?
A: A Showcase sample sale lasts from 1 to 5 days, providing our members with access to highly discounted designer items. Stock is provided directly from the luxury brands we work with. This can consist of this season’s excess, pieces from previous seasons and genuine samples/factory seconds.

Q: How do I shop at a Showcase sample sale?
A: Showcase members are able to book events and select a dedicated time slot. You will be sent a ticket via email. As Showcase offers tiered membership options, not all time slots will be available to each member. For in-store sales you must come at the start of your allotted time slot. For online sales, you must shop and checkout during your allocated time slot.

MEMBERSHIP OVERVIEW

Q: What memberships are available?
A:
Membership tiers include General, Priority, and VIP. For more information please visit our memberships page.

Q: Why is Priority or VIP membership better than General? 
Our brand partners only give us a limited amount of stock in limited sizes. The earlier you access the sale, the wider range of products will be available for you to purchase.

Occasionally brands will offer exclusive items and discounts for VIP & Priority members only.

VIP & Priority members will also gain access to some private sales, which are not visible to general members.

Q: How long is my membership?
A:
All memberships are valid for 12 months and automatically renew.

Q: How do I cancel my membership?
A:
We are sorry to see you go. You can cancel your membership renewal here. Once cancelled, your membership will automatically end and not renew. We do not offer refunds on membership fees.

Q: Can General tier members access online sales? 
A: Yes. Please note that as with in-store events, only time slots towards the end of the sale will be available to General members.
