    Default Are Chanel's Les Exclusifs ever Discounted?

    In fact, are they sold anywhere besides from the Chanel Website and the Counters?

    I don't believe they are ever discounted, just the opposite, climbing in price I think.

    I've personally seen them only at Saks and the Chanel boutiques in malls. Didn't realize Niemans also carried them, and never saw them reduced.

    Not only aren't the Exclusifs ever discounted, but here, even when department stores are having 10 or 20 percent sales, Chanel isn't included.

    They are now sold at Bloomingdale's, where if you open a charge account, you can get a discount on your purchases for that day and the next day. I got a 15% discount on a bottle I bought for my girlfriend a few weeks back. Keep in mind, the discount varies, though I can't see it being less than 10%. The discount is not shown on your receipt, but rather applied to your first bill (you will pay tax on the full price.) I saved $42 on my bottle!

    That's good info to know especially if one is contemplating buying one of them like you and has a Bloomingdales close by. Wasn't aware of this. Thanks for the update.

    Generally speaking, NO. Chanel is usually excempt from any sort of discounts... that being said, firstly, I know $240 is a lot of cash, but for 200ml of juice and an Exclusif line, and depending on the scent, I actually think they're quite well worth the price. But that's beside the point. The closest thing I've seen to a discount has been that here in Canada at Holt Renfew for example, they'll do a sale where if you spend $250, you get a store credit back of 15% of the purchase price back on a card... which you can then spend on a future purchase. So not quite a discount, but sort of money off.
    NEW STUFF FOR SALE - TOM FORD, Guerlain, Acqua Di Parma, Serge Lutens, Byredo, Diptyque, etc. .

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Have got no idea about the US, but certainly here in Europe, some airports have Chanel boutiques that sell the exclusive range at discounted rates.

    That's very surprising. How much of a discount would you say off the retail?

    Think the 75ml are 110 retail. I saw then at the airport in London 88-something in that same size. Not bad if you ask me given that they are never on sale.
