Free to join members-only shopping site Rue La La has been bringing us designer deals for five years now, and to celebrate they're taking the word sale to a whole new level.

Dreaming of a vintage Hermès Birkin bag or a Rolex watch? How about a luxurious weekend getaway to Canyon Ranch in the Berkshires or VIP seating for you and 15 friends at the Barclays Center?

All of that and hundreds of other coveted items will set you back just $5. No, that wasn't a typo. F-I-V-E D-O-L-L-A-R-S.

Here's how it works.

On Wednesday, June 5, Rue La La will post the details on their Facebook page. Share the Facebook tab, and enter your email address.

When the Facebook page reaches 5,555 shares, everyone who shared the page and their email address will be sent an invitation revealing the date and time of the boutique. A few days later at the disclosed time, the surprise party boutique will unlock, leaving the Internet world to battle for once in a lifetime bargains. 

Until then, we'll be exercising our clicking hands and searching our area for the speediest Internet connection. See you there.
