Hide Your Credit Cards: Gilt Groupe Launches An App




    In a move that is at once completely brilliant and bank account-dooming, online sample sale powerhouse Gilt Groupe has launched an iPhone app that will both alert members of upcoming sales and let them shop straight from their phones.

    It comes as no surprise that Gilt Groupe members have long been asking for a mobile experience -- how many times have we been stuck in traffic while Marc Jacobs bags are selling out on -- and now Gilt has delivered with aplomb. Not only will the sample sale e-tailer send sale alerts to the phone, you can shop active sales on the go and -- wait for it -- check out in under a minute.

    Is your bank account shivering yet? Because ours are.
