Last month, I sent a bag back to the repair center. It turns out they couldn't repair or replace it, so Coach gave me a credit for a new item! Ok, tangent - I must say I'm very happy with Coach. This bag was used and the reason I sent it back was that it had fur trim which had "gone bald" in a couple spots. I'm getting back the cost of the bag new, including tax! I just wanted to give a "plug" for Coach - I know it gets knocked as not a high-end designer, but I've got to hand it to a company that truly stands by their product. Ok, stepping off the soapbox now and getting back to the point - I now have this credit and I'm torn - do I go out and spend it right away (ladies, you'd be proud, I've cultivated a shoe/clothes obsession in my husband, so he wants to go out Sat. and shop (gasp!) so we'll be right near a Coach store!), or do I wait? What would you do? I'm contemplating the Ali bag in whiskey, or perhaps getting the shoulder bag that I have in suede in leather as well. And while I'm babbling, some questions for the SAs - the credit I got (it's a letter from customer service that I'm supposed to bring in to redeem) says nothing about expiration, but it does say that they'll hold my original item for 30 days. Does that mean I have to use the credit within 30 days? Also, the letter talks about redeeming in full price stores and catalogue/online, but could I use it at an outlet (according to hubby, we're going to the outlets Sun. b/c I've created a monster!). Gosh, sorry for all the questions and the babbling, but TIA!
