Hi all how are you?? :yahoo:
I'm thinking about buying my first Chanel , but I'm wondering where to buy it ? from the botique? or from NM? and what about NM , do they have offers like you can get 200 off if you spend 2000$ ?

I really appreciate your input , thank you in advance

I don't know about NM offers, you'd have to check the store...
they change anyway

I bought one from the boutique before, as well as NM.... the experience was the same..
in fact the SA from NM was really great. probably just as knowledgeable as the boutique.

I would say boutique... because they are stricter on return policies so chances are, your bag is brand new and never touched!

Saks and NM run promos quite often. If you have an NM CC, there is a tiered gift card event happening now. GL

I purchase from the dept stores more b/c I generate store points on the CC which translate to points (to get GCs).

I'm looking to buy a Chanel myself but I'm confused. Someone suggested Bloomingdales but when I go to the website, there are no Chanel handbags found. Does this mean I would have to personally go to Bloomies? Thank you!

yes or you can order by phone, but not online.

This. Along with other department stores like Saks, NM, and Nordstrom. Saks has 10% off for new account holders. Nordstrom have fabulous customer service. I will go for department stores because they have offers and discounts, and sales. Plus you get offers if you open their cards. The Chanel boutiques don't have these things.

If you live in or near LA, would say that Chanel Boutique.. if not

NM or BG is great for Chanel or NY Chanel boutique...

^ ITA. That's been my experience. I have not encountered any defects from bags that are from the boutique. That hasn't been the case for the bags I purchased from Nordstrom, NM, etc...
