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.
Don't forget: We're on the hunt for a good sample sale reporter. If you're a strong writer who doesn't mind getting up early, waiting in lines, and occasionally being bonked in the head by a flying stiletto, then this might be the gig for you. It's a freelance, part-time position with no experience required, although it helps if you're familiar with our lineblogs and sale coverage. To apply, email firstname.lastname@example.org with an explanation of why we should hire you. [Previously]
