Yippee, I did it - I ordered my 1st LV - Batignolles Horizontal!! EBATES question.... Now, I have a question for those of you who use ebates....I went to ebates 1st and then clicked on the link to eluxury.com - and placed my order....QUESTION - I did not see an area to apply my code for ebates, did I do something wrong? Or will it automatically appear in a couple of days? Just curious .... needless to say, I placed the order!!! Thanks to everyone for all of your opinions. No need to wonder if this is authentic....can't wait to view the heat stamp, date code, etc...all the things I learned from you all! What fun!!!! I was once a GUCCI/BURBERRY junkie, now I can LV to the list - HA! HA!
