Ladies I need you help!


I am trying to decide on a Brown Caviar Jumbo Classic with GHW and date code beginning with 7 so about 2002-2003 in great condtion. The cost they are quoting me is
3750 no tax. It is a single flap as it is older.


vs


Brand New Chanel Jumbo in Burgundy in SHW. With points through one of the department stores I can almost get 800 off the current price of 5500 but still need to pay tax. I love the eggplantish color


Questions


1. Which one should I buy and Why?


2. Is the preowned bag too much for its age?


I would love to hear back from all you lovely ladies asap as I will need to decide on the brown bag within the next few days.


Thanks

Do you have pictures? It really depends on the color. Personally, I would pay more to buy the brand new one, but that's just me.

As much as I like brown, I love burgundy, and IMHO when you can take advantage of an $800 credit for a new bag I say GO FOR THE BURGUNDY! I think you'll be able to find newer pre-loved brown bags in excellent condition for considerably less than $3750.

Brown has its ebbs and flows in popularity, burgundy is always beautiful. If I were in your shoes, I wouldn't hesitate to get the new burgundy bag with that credit. We're talking about a $950 (minus tax) price difference between a new bag vs. a twelve year old one. There is more value to be had here in the new bag. It's up to you.

Thank you all so much! It seems like it is a unanimous yes for the burgundy one thus far.
You have helped me and I will keep you posted...

Which department store? I've been waiting for triple points at Bloomongdales to pull the trigger and buy the Chanel classic jumbo flap.

I recently bought the burgundy and I adore it so much! The colour changes with the light and is a very versatile colour to wear. Good luck with your choice!
