Two years ago I bought a Dior bag at Singapore's DFS. Prior to making my purchase I was quoted $300sgd by the SA. When I went down on a separate occasion few months later to purchase, another SA told me that it's no longer $300sgd but $350sgd because the bag is last season/outdated hence the $50sgd surcharge. I've never heard of such a thing before, but I bought the last piece anyway. Shouldn't I be more likely to get a discount instead of a surcharge? I bought an "outdated" Hermes scarf (last piece in the store) in Hongkong and was never taxed.
