I just have to rant! I dont have a PCE card but i called the coach store and they were so nice, they simply told me to come right in and if i was on the system they would let me have the discount. Now theres the satchel I was wanting from the outlet stores so i called the outlet to check again (called a few days ago and they said no, but a PFer said yes). The manager I spoke to didn't just say no. I explained the situation how I saw something i liked i didnt have a card but since the coach store allowed me to use the discount if she would also. She didn't just say no... she continued to lecture me in a terribly derogatory manner. She said "I don't understand, so you dont have a card but you want to use the 25% discount at our factory location where our prices are already marked down?" "Your calling so you obviously are fully aware that you don't have the card btu you want to come here and get the discount WITHOUT the card?" Her tone of voice was condescending and she obviously understood what i was asking. I said I was simply asking if they would honor it the same way the coach store had. (I shop at coach frequently but didnt get a card) She continued lecturing me and implying that I was out of my mind to even ask and made me feel terrible for trying to get a discount on the $400 satchel. She could have said a simple no instead of implying that i was completely out of line to even ask. ARGHHH!! She was just so mean. She could have just said no. So.... in spite of her and in love for my fellow tPFers ... YES!!! PCE IS VALID AT THE CARLSBAD LOCATION.... as long as you have the actual card!!!!! If anyone is going to carlsbad today (I'm leaving SD Monday) please private message me if you want to share and we can excahnge #s.
