prices of chanel in europe, especially germany or spain?? bonus offer!!

  1. Hi ladies,
    i was wondering if any of you overseas purse fanatics or any avid US shoppers knew anything about the price of chanel in europe, particularly germany and spain??

    i will be heading over there in a few weeks for a well-needed vacation! are price increases effective there also? also how does the price of a classic bag there compare to the same one here in the states?

    i visited monte carlo a few months back and was able to snag a chloe for a few hundred less than here, with the VAT tax refund and all. i'm not sure about chanel though.

    if anyone has any info on chanel in europe at all, i would love it. :yes:

  2. MsJenn, sound like a fun plan. I was in Germany last month, and bought 4 Chanel bags while I was there. The prices (with the exchange rate at the time) was identical to what we got here. Actually one bag came out to be a bit more expensive there than here. Yes, you can get 13% VAT refund, but it's not all that attractive with the exchange rate at the time. I found out that when I opened up a Saks card and did it during EGC event, it's actually cheaper to get a bag locally.

    And be careful when you bring in those bags on your way in to the US, read this thread:

    Have a great vacation!
  3. I ahve no experience buying CHanel in Europe, but my friends did purchased from Paris and after VA refund, they would be at least 10% cheaper than here....
  4. oh hmm, maybe i should plan a trip to paris too!! :yes:
  5. the VAT refund in Germany and France for Chanel is exactly the same, which is 13%
  6. but the prices for chanel in paris is cheaper than the prices of chanel in germany, no?
  7. Nope, the ones that I bought in Germany (jumbo flap, reissues, flap from soft handle ligne and timeless tote) were all the same...
