A classic Chanel or a Gucci Dionysus is the dream of everyone. But unfortunately for many of us, this expense is equivalent to a few month’s installment on a new car or the rent. Spending that much dough on a bag is seriously impractical. But fear not, there are better ways to score a designer bag without having to pay an arm and a leg.

  • Subscribe to the newsletter

There are many retailers who will provide a discount to new buyers if they opt to sign up for the newsletter or even download their mobile app. A 10-15% off on a designer tag will save you hundreds of dollars.

  • Buy pre-owned bags

If you are willing to be on look out for a pre-owned bag, designer tags come at least 50% cheaper. Sites like eBay have auctions for second hand designer bags that you can keep tabs on. You get to pay much less price for bag with negligible wear and tear.

  • Shop smart

Black is a classic color. Black handbags are often more expensive and do not usually get put up for sale. If the bag you have eyes for is made of real leather, then you can get many seasonal colors on sale which you can get dyed black from a handbag repair for hardly $50, saving you a couple of hundred dollars easily.

  • Buy replicas

Replica Louis Vuitton bags, or any other brand of bags can easily be found online. Whereas a genuine Louis Vuitton will take you a couple thousand dollars in the least, a replica will hardly cost you a few hundred dollars. Most sites put a lot of details and quality work into the replicas so you will not lose out on your investment.
