I just went to LV in Holts today to purchase a new Taiga Kendall PM (chose it so my DH can use it too) before the price increase in Canada. As I was paying I asked the SA if I can pick it up tomorrow. She asked me are you going on a trip soon and I said 'yes but not until December'. She then asked me if I can wait until Nov. 15 to pick it up then can I get $100 Holt Renfrew gift card for the purchase (they are having their cash back day). Then I said if I purchase it then, won't the price go up? The SA told me that I will put you down for a pre-purchase and you will be guarantee the price before the increase! Wow, that is like saving 3% plus getting $100 off the bag. Going to be getting my tag heat stamped (my DH and I share the same intials) so, can't wait to go pick it up!
