Saks new account 10% discount works with charge send?


Oct 15, 2006
I am looking to get a classic lambskin flap in m/l or jumbo and hoping to take advantage of the Saks 10% off new account holder. :P

The Saks in my state does not sell Chanel bags and I would likely be doing a charge send from another state.

Does the 10% off still work when doing a charge send from another state?
Can I apply for the card at my local Saks and have the discount applied to the purchase from another Saks?

Does anyone know of any good Saks location to be on the waiting list or for charge send?

Thanks very much for your help! :biggrin:

Very interesting question. I think that you can only apply and take advantage of the 10% off incentive in-store... Can anyone correct me if I'm wrong?


love shopping!!!

perhaps you can open the card at the local store in-person, then have your SA call the store you wish to order from and put the phone order in for you right on the spot?

i think that would be the only plausable way it could work.

you do get 10% off the day you open it, but how would the store you are phoning know you JUST opened it that day, unless a local SA was telling them on your behalf (ie the phone order in-store)

Resurrecting an old post.

Say that your credit limit is $2000 but the item you want to purchase is $5300. So you need to charge the difference on another card.

Will you receive 10% off the amount charged on your Saks card, or on the full amount? Thanks!

Do you know if you can use the 10% discount for Chanel? What about triple points for Chanel? I am hearing different things from everyone & I don’t have a Saks that carries Chanel near me.
