Do Coach bags ever go on sale?

Started 1274270413.05 in Fashion Talk | Last reply 1274544751.137 by stevieb

Does the Coach store ever have a sale or coupons? What about places like Macy's/Nordstoms, are they ever part of a coupon or sale?  I would love to buy one but personally have trouble justifying the price. Are they worth it?

I love Coach bags!  They last forever.

You can find great deals at the Coach outlet store.  Their prices are excellent and many times you can find a coupon here or at the store for an additonal percentage off.

Ebay is another option...many great deals.  I have found several of my purses there.  Just be sure to purchase from someone with great feedback on the purses that they are selling.

Also, several times a year, the Coach retail stores sends out a coupon for 25%  off.  I have also seen certain styles of the purses on sale at the department stores.

I just Googled Coach Handbags and there are plenty of sites that offer sales on them. Give it a try. HTH

I get coach emails that send me coupons for additional percentage off at their outlets.  I signed up on their website.

Several times a year Coach sends out coupons good at their stores for 25% off.  Macy's has a coupon that comes out twice a year that is good on Coach handbags.  The Coach outlet stores have great deals.

Be careful; many of these sites carry fakes.

Sometimes you can buy COACH bags at the better department stores on sale. When Macys has coupons, sometimes they will let you use them on COACH products....sometimes they do not. If you have a COACH store nearby, become friendly with the SAs.  They will let you know about any upcoming sales or promotions.

I bought 2 small Coach bags on sale at SFA this winter. I've also seen some Coach on the sale table at Nordstrom.  However, when you want a specific bag in a specific color, waiting for a sale can be useless.  My sister lives a few minutes from an outlet store, so I check out Coach each time I visit and have yet to find any of the bags on my personal wish list there.

Boston Store/Bergners/Bonton carry Coach bags and they are 20% off a few days a year.  You would have to call the store and ask them.  I think one is Community Day sales....where everything is on sale.  PJ

Yes, they do go on sale at Macy's. Just bought DD one on sale and saved $200.00. It is still featured on the Coach site at the original price.

The outlets have awesome sales.  The last few times I've gone on the weekends they even give out coupons at the door for extra % off.  I don't even bother with the full price store anymore.

1. at a coach outlet.

2. when they send you the 25% off coupon 2 times per year.

3. Macy's puts them on sale sporadically.

    Coach purses are well worth the price as they last a very long time! I have one from 1990 in brown that never seems to show any signs of wear. It is all leather. I did just get 2 from the outlet store with an in-store coupon. One is fabric and leather trim, the other is 2 tone leather. The outlet stores are well worth the trip. Just be sure to be very flexible about styles and colors as one may not find current purses.

Recently, I was able to use one of my 20% off coupons at Macy's to buy a Coach bag.   If you buy a bag at a Coach store, then you get on the mailing list for the 25% off coupons (at least I did.)

I live in Maine and we have Coach outlets where they take great discounts on Coach purses! I don't think Macy's ever includes the Coach purses in any of their sales unfortunately.

Here in CA, Nordstrom stores also put several coach bags on sale. They're usually the older styles, but there are some great deals.

Yes they are worth the money at least that is my opinion.  I tend to get mine from department stores or a coach store when they send me the 25% coupon. The best thing about Coach is their CS.  Should you have any problems with the bag they will send it to be fixed or just give  you a new bag.  I did have a bag where the color was rubbing off and they told me be pick out another bag.  In fact I am kind of in a delema now as I saw a new color violet that just came out yesterday I really want but keep talking myself out of going today to get it.

I love Coach bags but would never buy one at a department store.  I've bought several at the outlet store.  I recently purchased an all leather one on clearance with a 20% off coupon for $79.

I agree about the customer service. Two years ago I bought my first coach. It was the medium Carly. Anyway, the top of it started fraying, and I thought, if this is what I get for $375 after tax, then forget it. Then on the facebook page, I saw a discussion that the same happened to another girl, and they let her get a new bag on the spot. so I thought I'd give it a try. Sure enough, the girl asked me if I'd like to select another bag! Woo hoo! So to make it even sweeter. I had a 30% off coupon from some class action suit. I don't even know what it was about, but they sent me the coupon. She let me use the coupon and the amount I had spent toward the Carly bag. I walked away with a large bag and a wallet for $75 after both!!

My local Macy's almost always has a 30% off group of bags...usually from the prior season, which isn't bad at all.  Of course.....they're swooped up as soon as they're put into their little 30% off area.  They also have sale wallets, too.  I'm always checking the sale area when I'm passing through...just in case I stumble on a fantastic deal, which I have of course;)

I tried being patient but it took too long.

 This happened to my daughter, she had a bag she'd gotten at a Coach store and the zipper started going bad (within the year).  We took it back into the store and they replaced it with the same bag with out a problem.  That's what I call customer service.

I like Coach, but like most everything else, they aren't what they used to be.  Still, they're very nice, if overpriced (also like everything else) handbags.  Your best bet is an outlet.  That way, you know you're getting Coach and they do offer some very good incentives.  I occasionally see Coach at TJ Maxx but not very often at all, and when I do, it's a bag or two, so there's no real opportunity to make a selection.  It's more like take it or leave it!
