Updated on Wednesday September 6, 2023: If you’ve been eyeing a new Louis Vuitton bag for some time now and were hoping for a good sale to come around this Black Friday, then we’re sorry to say that Louis Vuitton NEVER EVER has any sales or discounts. The price you see is the price you pay year-round. The same goes for other high-end luxury designers like Chanel, Gucci and Hermes.
We’ve had people write to us that they’ve seen Louis Vuitton bags discounted before at some stores. Be aware, in all the checks and calls we’ve made over the years to all of those reported stores, we could never find a genuine Louis Vuitton boutique running any promotions, ever (if you can prove us wrong then be sure to let us know in the comments below and we’ll investigate!).
You might be asking yourself what happens to last season’s stuff that’s unsold or any slightly scratched or display handbags. Well, it’s sad but true, they destroy all the unsold or imperfect items rather than sell them off at a discount as most other manufacturers do. And any store that you find advertising too-good-to-be-true discounts on Louis Vuitton bags, especially on all those questionable websites out there, it’s 99.9% likely that there are all counterfeit products. Stay away from those stores and shop safe!
In all honesty, your only chance to find a deal on a Louis Vuitton handbag is to buy one that’s been pre-owned. There are a number of stores that advertise “authentic” used Louis Vuitton bags and accessories, but still, you have to be carful as you can get stuck with an expensive and pretty much worthless counterfeit.
