I just spoke to an SA at a store which I will not disclose. I expressed interest in buying a Birkin and was told I could be put on a list for podium in July if I were to purchase a Kelly from the podium in February. I have no interest in buying a Kelly at this time. I think it is quite manipulative of an SA to only offer to help me out if I were to buy a bag I have no interest in. Anyone have any advice on what to say to possibly sweet-talk my way out of the purchase of a Kelly and onto the July podium list?
