    I have an opportunity to purchase a CHANEL jumbo in Europe since a relative is there now and is willing to get me one there. But I'm not going to get the box or the experience of going to the store. But I also have to a chance to go to Saks open a card, get 10% and get the box and the whole experience.

    CHANEL in Europe

    Price: ~4600-4700 USD after VAT

    CHANEL at Saks

    Price: ~5200 USD after 10% discount
  2. I say get your bag in Europe. Your bag will arrive with a story. You can purchase your next one at Saks or the boutique and get the full experience :smile:
  3. I would go for savings over the experience personally. Is the experience worth $500? To me that's savings toward another bag.
  4. If this is your first Chanel and money is not a big issue, go for the experience at SAKS. You'll also be able to view the bag in person to make sure it's exactly how you want it.
  5. Europe. Trust me, the first one just opens the door. There will be MANY, MANY more that follow. Save any way you can. Your next can be from saks with the discount. So you get two that are discounted.

  6. Go for the EUROPEAN DISCOUNT!! THIS IS NOT YOUR LAST CHANEL!! We at tpf can assure you as sister members!!

    Can't wait for your reveal and story!
  7. If u get it in Spain the tax refund can go to15%! The more u buy the higher % the tax back! Makes a huge difference!

  8. I would buy in europe, but maybe u can pick up the box sometime on ur vaca....
  9. I'd say Europe if you absolutely 100% sure that's the bag you wanted and trust your relative in doing a thorough inspection of the bag because once they bought it it's hard to exchange or return it in the states.
    Also, if your relative gets charged duties then the saving won't be as significant.

  11. She has bought several luxury bags from Europe back to the U.S. (i.e. Lady Dior, Chanel GST, and LV Brea). She knows what to do with VAT and how to avoid duties on the bag :biggrin:
  12. ********UPDATE**************

    My relative said she might ask the store to ship the box back to the U.S. for me ;D (But not too sure).
  13. for Chanel u can always get the boxes flat and unmade up so it fits flat in the suitcase
  14. If the relative is caught having the box in the suit case...it's a higher risk of getting taxed...there is a way of not getting tax and that is by carrying the bag to the airport.

  15. This was going to be my suggestion.
