And icons are always good investments. Here are updated bag prices for some of Louis Vuitton’s most coveted bags of 2019. Enjoy!
Things to know about shopping handbags in the United States:
- Most States don’t have tax-refund
- Each State has different sales tax regulation
- There are places where you can shop tax-free
The first bullet is the most important one. In general, when shopping in the US as a tourist, there is no tax-refund. The retail price is the ultimate price you pay for the bags. However, there are a few States that do encourage tourists to come, shop and refund sales tax. If you want to know more, go to Guide To Tax-refund in the US page.
Is it cheaper to buy in the US or in Europe?
There are two conclusions:
1). Buying Europe is cheaper regardless with tax-refund or not.
2). As a tourist, shopping in Europe is a must, because the tax-refund will make it even more cheaper.
Louis Vuitton was established in Paris, which is known as the city of high fashion. But I don’t mind going to other places in Europe to search and hunt for my favorite bag. Places like Milan, Florence, Amsterdam, London are packed with endless shopping streets and beautiful boutiques. Just remind yourself that the bag you decide to take home, must be made in France.
How about the tax-refund scheme? – The main reason why most fashionista’s are in Europe. Thanks to the tax-refund program, we can get designer bags must cheaper than other countries. The prices are already relatively lower, so the tax-refund is another extra discount. In the Europe tax-refund list that we’ve created, we showed that 2 countries are the cheapest to buy Louis Vuitton Bags. They are Italy and Spain. But does that stop you from shopping in France?
Let us walk you through the tax-refund process – when you follow the 5 steps in the Guide To Tax-refund in Europe, the 2 most important steps are: bring your passport when shopping and make sure to get the tax-free form/document from the shopping assistant.
Louis Vuitton CDG airport in Paris? – If you’re lucky enough to arrive at one of the most famous airport in France, then at least visit the LV boutique in the tax-free area. CDG airport sell handbags and SLG’s cheaper than in the city.
Louis Vuitton Heathrow airport is a blessing – not only do they stock classic handbags, but also SLA’s and other small accessories. If you’re looking for the cheapest place to purchase Louis Vuitton, then this is the place to visit. You can also hire a personal shopper to help you. The PS can make reservations and take you to your desired shops much quicker, because she knows the short-cuts.
Tokyo is known for it’s distinctive fashion taste and sometimes Louis Vuitton will release limited edition pieces. Another reason to visit Japan is that the tax-refund can be taken care of very quickly by the malls and shops, so you don’t need to process the refund yourself.
Is it cheaper to buy in the US or in Canada? In general, there is no tax-refund in both countries. In that case, buying in Canada can be slightly cheaper. For example, this $5000 USD bag is around $150 USD cheaper. But is it worth the trip? Also, the price difference is subject to currency exchange fluctuation.
