The dream team: Gilt and Klout collaborate.

You know those Klout perks you keep racking up and haven't a clue what to do with? And thus let them expire? Well now there's a Klout promotion that you'll finally want to use.

Klout and Gilt Groupe have teamed up to give users discounts on Gilt purchases. Brilliant!

Still have no idea what we're talking about? Allow us to explain.

Klout measures your social media influence across networks. The more Twitter followers and Facebook friends or fans you have (and the more you tweet, get re-tweeted, and engage people), the higher your score. It's easy enough to find your score—simply log in to Twitter and then go to

Now then, back to the good news! Gilt members will receive a percentage off their purchase that matches their score. So a score of 1-20 will get 20 percent off. A score of 80-100 will be free. Yes, free. Influence rules.

The perks roll out in increments to users and are only valid for a limited time. If you missed the first two deals, and have a higher score, you're in luck. On March 8, scores between 41-60 will receive 60 percent off. On the 9th, 61-80 will be rewarded, and on the 10th, 81-100.
