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.

Going to Italy 🇮🇹 vacation and shopping
There is an advertisement on fb for Louis Vuitton Outlet mall. The ad states that due to pandemic, daily sales have been severely affected. I have never heard of an outlet for LV. The prices are so low it just seems to good to be real. They have listed the noe bb for $230. Is this legit?
Hi Rose Ann – There is absolutely no Louis Vuitton outlet. As posted on Louis Vuitton’s site, “…Louis Vuitton never discounts its products. Louis Vuitton items advertised as discounted on the Web are invariably fake”. It’s best to stay away from those sites.
And actually, it seems like the pandemic has made it harder to buy some of LV’s most popular handbags and other items. The “By the Pool Collection” for the 2021 summer season literally just came out a few weeks ago and it already seems impossibly to get any of the pieces. And it’s not only likely due to demand but global supply distributions.
Is the price same world wide or In some countries like China or UAE , they are bit cheaper due to taxes?
Hi Sarah. The prices vary from country to country when you convert back into dollars. That’s due in part to varying local taxes, but also current exchange rates that fluctuate. We’ve heard stories that flying from the East Coast to Paris and buying a new bag there is cheaper than doing so locally, even when you account for the cost of the plane ticket (although during a pandemic, it’s not longer the best idea).
I wanted to buy my first LV purse last Mother’s Day. Went to the mall in San Jose, CA and could not believe the number of people in their LV store. I had to put my name on the waiting list to talk to the customer associate! Crazy! No sale was going on and such a demand. I left the store – no LV for me!
Stein Mart is having a sale online on Louis Vuitton are these real or fake?
Hi Brandy, You’re right — Stein Mart is having a sale on Louis Vuitton bags, most appear to be 20% off the original list price. But you’ll notice that all of these bags are used and tagged as “previously owned”. If you plan to pick up a bag there just be mindful of the posted rating chart which will let you know what condition the bag is in (they range from pristine to well-used). They guarantee that the bags are authentic so it might be worth taking a shot if there is a style you like in good shape. The worst case is you can send it back — You’ll have 10 days from the date of delivery to do so. Good luck!
If you want a sale bag you might need to go to Coach.
I think is a bunch of bull,every enterprise that depends on people’s money should sometimes show some appreciation to the customers by running some good deals from time to time.
Business is drvien by supply and demand. LV has an ever increasing supply with a mostly constant supply. They started business as bespoke travel good resale and have never been a high market share company. The shopping experience and the follow up is much high than you receive in near luxury brand stores and the experience is built into the pricing system.
I think that’s why these people are not their target market. They don’t want people who can’t afford it, they only want the 3% elite.
Where can i find girls shoes size 13. Are they in the stores
