Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.
While we'd love for our significant others to fawn over our shiny new purchases like our best girlfriends do, the reality is that there may be some eye rolling, sighing, and blasphemous questions like "Do you really need that?" involved since there's nothing in it for them. If this sounds like your current situation and you're searching for a way to make your retail therapy a rewarding experience for him, then LoveSpoils is here to save the day.
Here's how the LA-founded online shopping site works: Sign up with your special someone, either separately or in joint accounts. Once either of you purchase an item from one of the site's participating online retailers such as Shopbop, Bliss Spa and Williams-Sonoma, you accumulate reward points called—you guessed it—"LoveSpoils." In turn, your partner can then redeem those points for exclusive deals on the site, like a set of golf clubs from Golfsmith. Or, if you're feeling especially self-indulgent (and he's cool with it), you can use the points to treat yourself to a dress from Rent the Runway or a Bliss Spa gift card instead.
The site officially launches at midnight tonight to kick off V-Day, so if you're looking to give it a spin, they're offering Racked LA readers 500 free LoveSpoils points just for signing up. Simply enter your email address here to join the wait list and enter RACKEDSPOILS in the code box on the registration page when the site goes live.
