ASOS has launched a sample sale website where everything is £5.
The sale was announced yesterday (4 July) and, at the time of writing, there are currently 1153 products listed on the 'women's' section of the sample sale website and 580 productions on the 'men's' page.
Popular brands on the site also include Miss Selfridge, COLLUSION, Topshop and ASOS Design.
Hundreds of current-season items, some of which were originally priced upwards of £140, have now been reduced by 'up to 90 per cent off' their original price to just a fiver.
Many rushed to social media to share the new to other bargain-hunters out there after their next fix of fashions.
A few, however, were a tad sceptical of the sample sale with worries the entire thing was a 'scam' that was simply just too good to be true.
One Twitter user penned: "I need to know if the ASOS sample sale is legit cos I ain't about to get scammed."
A second added: "Did I just get 3 pairs of jeans from the ASOS sample sale for £18? Yes. Is the website a scam? it might be!!"
Another shopper also shared their sample sale haul along with some doubt over the deal: "7 items of clothing for £35 thanks ASOS sample sale (better not be scammed now)."
However, to put all the worries to rest - ASOS has since explained exactly what's going on.
According to Manchester Evening News, one of the biggest areas of confusion for customers using the pop-up site surrounded the login process.
Instead of using their original details connected to their regular ASOS account, shoppers were asked to create a whole new account altogether.
The retailer has confirmed that this process is just a feature of the new site and shouldn't be raising any alarm bells.
According to the news outlet: "ASOS confirmed that the ASOS Sample Sale website is a legitimate pop-up website where UK customers can buy a selection of ASOS items at sample sale prices but only for a limited time."
And the reason for the cut-back on cost?
Well, a spokesperson for ASOS explained: "The site is part of ASOS' plans to right-size its stock portfolio, as announced at full-year results in October 2022.
"In our P3 trading update on 15 June we reported that ASOS is on track to deliver a 20% year-on-year reduction in stockholding by the end of its current financial year, with inventory in P3 down by c.15% on FY22."
While the slashed prices and vast selection of garments may be tempting remember, as always, to shop responsibly and only buy things that you will actually wear.
