So I hit the my local coach store today. I do not have a pce card..... I walk in and do a lap and a somewhat friendly SA comes up to me and asks if I need help. I tell her that I know PCE is going on now but that I don't have a card and am wondering if she would be willing to give me the discount anyway. She gives me a look and asks how I know PCE is going on if I don't have a card. I told her some little birdies told me. She didn't seem amused, but rather said she would need to check. She left for a couple minutes while I was admiring the Large Black Carly I have been lusting after and firmly told me that Coach sends the cards out to select PREFERRED customers and that if i didn't recieve a card I was not entitled to the sale. She went on and on about how not everyone who shops at coach gets a card and how the sales don't happen often....and on and on. (I must tell you too the store I am in is in a mall full of very high end stores and isn't called a mall it's called the Galleria. very upity neighborhood and I am definately not uppity and am dressed pretty casual) I am nodding and like ok well then thanks and I start to leave. No way I am going to buy something when I know theres a chance to get it cheaper. She stops me and goes um miss wait let me double check....i am like uh-huh. She goes over and is talking and then comes back and says well since you KNOW about the sale then I guess we can give you the discount this one time. I was so not impressed with any of the help in the store that I should have just left right then, but I really wanted the carly. Needless to say I got Carly with the discount-but I am not going to give anymore business to that store. I totally felt like she thought I shouldn't be allowed to even buy anything. I feel very icky about the whole transaction and now I am not sure I even want to keep the bag.
