Question about Buying Luggage Tags at the Boutique

When buying LV luggage tags (the ones in Monogram and DE), do you need to show a receipt of a bag that shows it originally came with a luggage tag? I've just been informed by my SA this afternoon that this is the new protocol now (they say it was issued from Paris HQ) and that they don't sell luggage tags unless you show this receipt. I wanted to get one for my DE Speedy. Has anyone else encountered this?

Kind of defeats the purpose of buying a luggage tag if your bag originally has one.

Yes I tried to purchase a Fuchsia leather luggage tag and the SA over the phone asked me what item it originally came off of. She said that she could order it as a "replacement part" if I had a luggage item. I told her it was for a Fuchsia Epi Neverfull and she basically said no.

Looks like I won't be getting a luggage tag either...

I wasn't aware - definitely wasn't the case in the past - do you have a good relationship with an SA that you could ask?

They said the protocol was just issued this month. Too bad...I've been wanting a DE luggage tag but it's always been out of stock. Now my chances are gonna be close to nil :P

For the price we pay for LV bags, I kinda felt bad when I heard the news. It's not as if I was going to put the luggage tag on a purse of a different brand.

I tried calling twice (on different days and different SAs) and got the same results. I'll visit the boutique tomorrow and try my luck.

Yep.. i was told they are now only "repair items" meaning they can only give them to you if your current one is damaged

I read this rumors too about not be able to buy luggage tags since I haven't got luggage items. Thats the reason I want to be quick and get some as they were a long time on my wishlist. So I bought these 3 beauties instad of the balloon charm which I was supposed to buy
