Chanel Price Increase In US – While Chanel was focused with their price increase plan in Europe and Asia, the retail prices in the United States remained unchanged for 4 years until November 2017. This is due to the fact that buying in the US has always been more expensive compared to most countries. And when the prices became more in line with Europe, it was time to slap the handbags with 5% to 8% increase. We have written an extensive report with comparison analysis.

Is buying Chanel More Expensive In The US? – What we’ve discovered in the special US versus EU price report is that Classic Bags tend to be higher priced in the US compared to Europe. But surprisingly, if you decide to purchase a Seasonal Bag, the differences between those two countries are not that significant. In fact, we compared the Chevron Statement Bag in 2017 and the difference in price was only $40 USD. Would you fly to Europe to buy a handbag that’s only 40 bucks cheaper? I don’t think so.

So if you’re living or travelling in the US:

  • Classic Bags buy in Europe
  • Seasonal Bags buy in US or Europe are both fine

Did we miss something? Yes we did.

Can you claim tax-refund in the US? – The reason why tourists prefer to shop designer bags elsewhere is not only because of the prices, but also the sales tax. Sales tax is the same as VAT in Europe and every State has different sales tax. And here is the irony, you cannot claim ‘Sales Tax’ refund even if you’re just visiting. However, some States do want to attract shoppers like you and me, so they have created special rules. Some States do allow tax-refund and some don’t even impose sales tax. Everything has been written in the ‘guide to tax refund in the US’ article. If you’re interested of course.

Welcome to Europe, the bag paradise. A true fashion girl would love to shop Chanel in Paris, which is also the place where the legendary Coco Chanel started her journey. The Chanel Prices in Paris are almost the same as in other places in Europe. But I’m okay even if I have to pay a bit more, because no store can substitute the iconic boutique at the 31 Rue Cambon street. When you get a Bag there, they will seal it inside a white box. In other stores, you get a black box. Maybe it’s not something significant, but who doesn’t want to carry a Chanel Bag that’s made in Paris and sold at the mother of all flagships.

31 Rue Cambon was also the site of Coco Chanel’s apartment.

Why is it so hot to buy Chanel in Europe? – That’s all because of the attractive prices. First of all, tourists get tax-refund. And even without the tax-refund, the retail prices are still cheaper than most countries.

tax refund euro sample

More purchases equals to higher tax-refund

So how much tax-refund can you get buying a Chanel Bag? – It’s usually between 10% to 15% and it depends on the country that you’ve made the purchase. Our page Vat refund rate in Europe shows the exact amount of cash you can get back and from which country. But long story short, you can enjoy up to 15% tax-refund in Italy and 12% in France. Sometimes at the Chanel store in Galeries Lafayette in Paris, you can only get 11%, so do you research before shopping.

Then there’s the cash transaction limitation rule that applies in the EU – If the price is €5000 euro for the Chanel Bag, you won’t be able to pay in cash in Italy. The maximum allowed in cash transfer is €3000 euro, so for the rest of the amount, you have to pay with credit card. Each EU country has their own law and rules. As a tourist in France, you can pay up to 10.000 euro in cash, but as a citizen, the maximum cash transfer is 1000 euro. Looking for more info? Check out the table that we’ve put together: Cash Transaction Limit Table.

Another reason to shop Chanel in Paris is because of the number of boutiques available there – They have 13 stores that sell bags, SLG, shoes and jewelries. They load up stocks every single week, but there are competitions. Paris is full of tourists and sometimes it can be frustrating when you try to find a classic bag but it’s sold out or they don’t have the leather, size or color that you want.

Chanel At CDG Airport (Paris)

Another location that might interest you is the CDG airport (or Charles de Gaulle Airport) – If it happens that you fly in or out from that airport, feel free to visit the boutique in the tax-free area. The store is not big, the stock is limited, but you can find a lot of SLG and earrings there. It’s worth your time because the tax-free area will be slightly cheaper than shopping in the city. You can find the location of the stores via this page – Shopping at CDG Airport in Paris.

London has 6 locations to shop Chanel – Two of our most favorite stores are Harrods and Selfridges. But do finish your journey at the boutique in the New Bond Street. They have some good stocks there too.

Chanel heathrow airport t

Chanel Heathrow Airport

Chanel at Heathrow Airport is the cheapest place to buy in Europe – The little but famous store can be found at Terminal 3, in the tax-free area. They have decent stock including Wallet On Chain but also handbags. When making a purchase, the SA don’t add VAT, thus you don’t need to process tax-refund, which will make the ultimate price much lower.

In our Chanel Guide To Heathrow Airport, I wrote a step-by-step instruction on how to shop at Heathrow. I also advice to hire a Personal Shopper, who will know the ins and outs, and short-cuts to get to T3 or T5 so that you can save time. They can also reserve a bag for you.

Our tax-refund guideline for Canada was very short, because since 2007, they have discontinued the tax-refund program for tourists. It’s as simple as that.

But is it cheaper to buy Chanel in the US or Canada? – According to our price analysis, the differences in retail prices are not that significant. It might be slightly cheaper to buy in Canada, but it’s not worth travelling all the way there.

Malaysia abolished their GST in 2018 – which means no product taxes anymore. Chanel quickly followed up with price decreases, which made us think: ‘is it cheaper to shop in Malaysia now?’.

The price did go down, but the results of our research were disappointing. The new prices were still expensive compared to countries like Australia, but it was cheaper than Singapore and Japan. Europe was still our favorite destination though, because nothing can beat shopping in the EU.

What I really like about shopping in Seoul and other places in Korea, is the speed of processing your tax-refund. Most popular malls do process the tax-refund for you, it can save you a lot of time and hassle. The airport is also very convenient to claim the tax-refund, actually the process is automated. You can read more via Guide to Tax-refund in Korea.

Chanel Purchase Limitations

Because of high demands and low stock, Chanel has to enforce purchase limitations in certain locations. In Australia, you can buy as much bags as you want, but in Europe it’s a different story. There is a lot of Chanel hunters and tourists in EU, especially in big cities like Paris, London and Rome. To avoid a few people buying up all the available stocks, Chanel has enforced strict purchase rules.

  • In the UK: Limit is 1 bag and 2 SLG per 60 days
  • In other EU countries like Paris: 1 bag per passport and 4 SLG per 90 days

The rules can change in different locations and sometimes with the store manager’s approval; they will allow you to buy 1 more bag.

Chanel Classic Bag Styles And Sizes Reference

I’m so excited to write about this section, because I love the design but also the history of every classic bag. At the moment, the 3 most iconic Chanel Bags are the Classic Flap Bags, Reissue 2.55 Bags and the Classic Boy Bags. Each handbag has its own unique story that roots back to the original founder Coco Chanel.

But what’s important to know is that these 3 handbags will always be in fashion. The prices will only go up and more steeply in the future. Therefore, they can be seen as a recession-free investment. We had lined up the most popular Chanel Bags and compared to the prices of the past with the future, to see which one was the best investment.

Lambskin and Caviar are priced the same and usually the aged calfskin. Patent Leather is a bit pricier. Chanel has recently banned exotic leathers like crocodile or lizard, as a replacement they introduces croc-embossed or lizard-embossed leathers. Both are made from calfskin.

What’s Caviar? Why is this leather so stiff and hard? Everybody loves Caviar because it’s durable and easy-to-clean. Caviar is actually calfskin, but there is lot of types of Caviar’s. Everything is explained inside our Caviar Leather Reference Guide page. Read it.

      Hi Apple, Chanel wallet range from €500 – €800, depending on the leather and sizes. The Chanel classic flap bag in medium cav. is priced at €3,100. You should claim tax at your last stop, that’s in Italy. Make sure you go to the custom first before you check-in your luggage with the Chanel bag inside. The custom needs to see your items before giving you the final stamp for the tax-refund. Promise to keep us informed about your purchase =)

          REPLY

          Hi Cheryl, Chanel has made a lot of boy bag in different styles, but generally the medium is sized: 6 x 10 x 3 inch and the reissue 226 is 11 x 8 x 3.5 inch. You might want to look at the new Chanel boy bags for f/w 2013: http://www.bragmybag.com/chanel-boy-bag-fall-winter-2013-collection/

          They have colors blue, red, white beige, black, brown, pink, purple and even two tones. Boy bags are out-of-stock quickly, so it depends what the boutique has. Where are you going to buy the bag?

          September 10, 2013
          • Cheryl

            Hi Alex. Thank for the reply:) I am planning to get it Hong Kong or Europe. I already bought the reissue 227 and the classic maxi flap. So I am thinking to get a boy bag that is not too big, something more formal. What size do you think should I get? Is medium one ok? By the way the finish in the reissue lock is not shiny and the lock of my bag now after using it like 4 times has like a rainbow shape shiny line. Is that normal? Or I got a defective bag? I bought it in Lafayette in Paris.

            September 10, 2013
          • Alex

            Hi Cheryl, you almost got the whole collection, nice job! I think you should lean on to the medium bag. I don’t think the small size is for you.

            Hi Cheryl, do you have snapshots of the reissue lock and of the rainbow shape? You can drop it on the forum. I need to see it.

    Hi,

    I m planning to get my first chanel bag when my husband travels to Germany in oct.

    Looking at the jumbo classic flap in black caviar leather with gold hardware. Do you think this is good start for a first chanel bag?

    Any other interesting color or leather to recommend? Thanks,

    September 4, 2013
    • Alex

      REPLY

      Your first Chanel bag! Either the medium classic flap in caviar gold or the jumbo bag is fine. I would also consider the PST/GST and the 2.55 reissue. But the classic flap bag is currently the most famous bag in Chanel collection.

      Black is the most common choice, dark blue is also nice too. And beige is also a classic color, but I would rather go for black. Other colors like pink and red are seasonal, but hard to find.

      I would just go for caviar, lambskin is easier to find, most people is hunting for caviar because of the durable leather.

      May I know where you bought your bag, in Chanel boutique? The price: ¥238000 is from Mitsukoshi department store, it’s even included tax. We haven’t heard any price increase yet, but it could be that Chanel change the price in Japan because of the weakening yen.

          Hi Tulips, we just publish the information we receive from the community. But if the GST is cheaper in tokyo, it should be the same for other styles too. GST GHW or SHW, do you usually wear gold or siler jewelries? The package should be exactly the same as you buy in Chanel store, if not, don’t buy it!

            Hi Alex, thanks for the quick reply. If the price is accurate that would be great as it would be at least a 700sgd savings compared to if I were to buy it sgd. my friend is going to Europe but this being my first chanel bag I’m more keen to buy it and check it on my own, since the GST is around 200sgd cheaper in Europe compared to Japan. I usually wear silvery/ cool toned accessories, u think SHW is better? But many have advised me that GHW is more classic.

            September 23, 2013
          • Alex

            The problem is that both GHW and SHW looks good. You need to match the bag and the hardware to your outfit, and if you usually weer silver, then I would recommend SHW. GHW or SHW is just personal preference.

          Hi Kate, I thought more it was a gift for someone else! A gift for yourself should never be: ‘where can I find the cheapest…’. for €2.000, you can get decent bag.

          So you requirements are:
          – It has the be Chanel?
          – It has to be between Chanel pearls and boy? (what is Chanel pearls btw? You got a picture?)
          – and it has to be around €2.000, don’t you like the small flap, WOC and other Chaenl classic bags?

            I thought about simply white Chanel Pearls like this Ebay Chanel Pearl

            Hi Kate, I like Chanel pearls, but I do recommend you to buy a Chanel bag first;

            The boyish Chanel bags are great, the smallest size are in your budget, but the Chanel clutch bag is amazing too:

            http://www.bragmybag.com/chanel-clutch-bag-is-oh-so-versatile/
            http://www.bragmybag.com/chanel-new-clutch-bag-meet-wocs-big-sister/

            it cost around €2.000, Hanim spotted it in Paris. It has:
            – The iconic CC lock
            – the elegant style similar to the timeless classic flaps
            – It has enough space for all your essentials
            – Choose to hide the strap inside to change it into a clutch, very versatile
            – It’s bigger than the WOC’s

        In Australia, it’s called TRS (tourist refund scheme) so when purchasing goods from Chanel, especially goods costing $1000+ require your name and address on the tax invoice. The GSTax you would get back is the cost of the bag divided by 11 eg 3000/11= 272.72 (which is the GST inclusive of the $3000). There is no restriction, but they note it “electronically” on your passport.

So this year, it is my goal to purchase one. Was there an increase in 2013? I want either the caviar maxi or the tote. Can you tell me how much I’m looking at for each? Thanks, Lisa

      Hi Lisa, you should be buying your first Chanel bag, because the prices never stop increasing. There’s no price increase this year, except for the Petite shopping tote (PST) and the XL version. But rumors goes that Chanel will increase prices next month, we will have to see. Generally they increase each year.

      I do not know the exact prices of Canada, but I do know that they are very similar to the US prices.

      The Chanel classic maxi flap bag in caviar should cost you around: $5,400 CAD

      The Chanel grand shopping tote: $2,900 CAD

      Have you decided which one you want yet?

    Hi!
    I would like to buy the Mini rectangular A69900 or square A35200 in Spain, as I live here and I’m not planning to travel anywhere soon.

    I had the intention to buy it in Paris as I’ve been there at the beginning of august, but my “shopping” experience couldn’t have been more disappointing! I went to Rue Royal Chanel store to ask some informations about small and mini classic flap bags and if possible buy mine. At that moment I didn’t know this site or some others where very helpful people share a lot of information (thank you guys!) but I didn’t think that buying a bag at a luxury shop required a lot of previous research and I imagined that sales assistants would do their job better. The shop was crowded, but at least we didn’t have to queue in the outside of the store as in Laffayete Chanel corner. As I’ve mentioned the SA was not helpful at all, she seemed not to understand (neither in english nor french) what I was talking about. She tried to persuade me to buy a cheap looking patent leather bag and when she finally realized that I didn’ want that bag, all the infos she gave to me were wrong according to yours.

    So now, before going to the Chanel store here in Spain, I would like to have all my doubts solved if possible.

    1. Do you know if any of these items (MINI rectangular A69900 or square A35200) are available in black caviar with GHW?
    2. Is any of them discontinued right now?
    3. Are both of them seasonal items?

    Thank you in advance for the answer and sorry about the long comment.

      HI Ainhoa, sometimes SA can give wrong information or speculation like date of price increases, but I don’t think they get information from the headoffice. What they do have is a card where all the names, price, style codes and sizes are written on it, they have all the information about you need. But advice depends on the SA taste, if they are not familiar with designer brands like Hermes, Chanel… or update themselves about the latest bag releases and what’s going on in fashion (because this is not their passion), then yes they can give wrong advice.

      Chanel boutique in Paris are crowded, mostly weekends and Friday. They don’t have time to give everyone attention. And lots of bags that you dream about are sold-out, so they recommend other bags. And you do need to conduct a research before you enter the Chanel boutique, a lots of their bags are just labeled: ‘Chanel classic flap bag’ on the tags, which can be very confusing.

      1. The mini squared are available in black caviar and GHW (This is the classic style), but whether the boutique get stock is another question mark. We have a picture of the extra mini bag on the forum.
      2. Do you mean the style or color? Colors depend on the season. The extra mini and mini squared are both def. not discontinued.
      3. Colors yes, but the item itself no no, some classic colors are still available no matter in what season you are in. Classic black is one of them.

      Keep us informed about your journey.

        Alex, thank you so much about all the infos!!

        If I finally got my hands on any of these bags I would let you know the details.

        I’ve seen the pictures of the extra mini… the one from Dusseldorf right? It’s niiiice but I think there are two sizes of extra mini rectangular bags and I prefer the bigger one.

        Thank you again!!

    Hi,

    I’m traveling to Milan & Paris in October and planning to get Chanel bag. I heard that one bag, per passport but i thinking of getting two chanel bags. Can I ask my boyfriend to use his passport to purchase? And what’s the price for a chanel cardholder in Europe?

      If you walk into the Chanel boutique together with your BF, you will considered as ONE PAIR. So you can only buy one iconic bag. (This is what we heard from the community). But if you walk into the Chanel and buy one bag and later on have your bf walk in and buy the another, that would probably work. Is this helpful?

      Oh, I forgot, the Chanel cardholder is priced: $275 USD (should be around €180 – €200) and the quilted lambskin is $310. Are you not buying an iconic bag? Keep us informed.

        Hi Alex. That’s not how it works. Each passport are entitled to purchase one handbag only. Example you can buy one maxi caviar in gold hardware only. If you need to buy two of the exact specification, you need to use another passport. For smaller leather goods such as the WOC, each passport can buy up to 4 of different kinds, example one WOC in black caviar and another WOC in black Lambskin. Under each passport, you are NOT allowed to purchase 2 exact same items.

          Hi Chanel freak, what you are saying is true. We also receive news that Chanel will recognize a group as one. And only one person can buy a Chanel bag. Please read this story:

          Hi…just to share..my sis manage to buy a chanel ckassic and a seasonal bag under one passport..unfortunately beside the one passport policy..the chanel sa also check if u came as a group (I.e. husband and wife)..if so the chanel sa only allowed one of them to buy..she just came back told me..the bag was bought at Manchester

            That is strange Alex. I am from Singapore and I travel to Europe every other month and often shop at Chanel stores. I am in close contact with one of the Chanel Sales Director of Europe and she clearly explained to me on Chanel policies. One passport, 2 different bags or 4 different small leather goods. Anyone above 18 years old can make a purchase and it does not matter if you come as a group, a pair or family. So if anyone has been treated unfairly, do write in to Chanel. Sometimes, SA does not want to entertain a big group of tourists as they would make other genuine customers waiting too long to be served. In the sales industry “Customers are always right!” 🙂
