Wow, congrats on scoring your bag and on sale, I love it when that happens! I actually have a nephew who works at Macy's who can get me a discount on things too.... I haven't taken advantage of the discount yet, but I think I will very soonI actually waited a while for mine. I bought the cobalt blue quilted Hamilton months after I had seen it and happened to call a local MK store and found that they not only had one left, but it was on sale! It was just meant to be! I'm also fortunate enough to have a mom that works at Macy's and gets a 20% discount at both Macy's and Bloomingdales.
