Last week San Francisco based GleeMaster launched as yet another members-only e-commerce flash sale site. The site competes directly with Rue La La, Hautelook, ideeli and Gilt to bring the best short-term deals on luxury brands and lifestyle services at up to 70% off to their customers. will run sales for 72 hours. The site launched with decent sales from Versace, Canali, David Yurman, Marc Jacobs, Burberry, BCBG Max Azria and English Laundry.

GleeMaster is doing something unique (for the time being) to differentiate themselves from the competitors. They have the world of the Gleeters™, which is a social media platform where members can upload and share stylish photographs. Users should use this platform to connect with their friends and other members of the network by posting photos and commenting on other people’s photos. Days into the official site launch, there are still very few photos in the Gleeters section. The application seems a bit premature. The photos aren’t displayed in the correct ratio, and from what I can tell members do not gain any points by sharing photos – but that could be coming down the pipeline.

To recap: I don’t know about you, but I feel like it’s time-consuming enough to stay on top of the deal sites that already exist. Each Saturday and Sunday it takes me about an hour to scour the flash sale sites I’m already a member of and figure out what really is worth buying (the deals aren’t always as great as they seem), I don’t know if I have much more time or interest to continue adding more sites to my routine. Will you be joining GleeMaster?

Final Note: If you’re in the Bay Area, GleeMaster is hiring for lots of positions.
