TPFers: I'm doing a little research ahead of my intended purchase of a Spring reissue (red caviar flap bag, medium). First, I know this bag is very in-demand, and I should be lucky enough to even find it. But for those of you who are hardcore Chanel fans... 1. how can I get a discount on a real Chanel bag that isn't resorting to eBay or a reseller? 2. what kind of discount is reasonable to expect? 3. how likely do you think it is for me to get this bag on a discount? 4. should I be looking for it at the boutiques or from a department store like Saks, etc.? This is my absolute dream bag but I just can't afford to the retail price right now. I'm budgeting for it as if I'd have to pay full price, but I'd love to know if there's anything I can do to save myself a little $$. Also, I don't regularly shop at Chanel and don't have any SA contacts there. (Also: moderators, if this is in the wrong subforum, please move as warranted. TIA!) Thanks everyone! Be as realistic and brutal as needed!
