Finding a great deal on your next Dior handbag is an excellent option; and a lot easier than you may think! Women across the world have been asking this important question: where to buy Dior bag the cheapest; and we’re here to answer that question! For the best prices and the best country to buy to get the biggest bang for your buck, keep reading!
In order to figure out which country is the cheapest place to buy your next dream Dior bag, we are going to compare pricing between 9 different countries including: United States, Canada, Europe, United Kingdom, Singapore, Australia, Japan, United Arab Emirates, Dubai, and Hong Kong – all found on our handy and convenient table. To ensure the prices are the same for each country listed, we will only using one bag to compare. We have chosen the extremely iconic and absolutely stunning Medium Lady Dior bag in Lambskin.
Explanation Of The Table
Take a glance at our table. Beneath each country name you will find the retail price of the bag, which is the price you will find in stores located in the country. You will also see a column labeled ‘tax-refund’. In this column, if you see a ‘0%’ listed, that means the country does not offer a refund. Keep in mind that every country uses a different terminology to refer to tax refunds. The United States uses sales tax while Canada uses GST (goods and services tax) or HST (harmonized sales tax). Neither of these countries offer tax-refunds on goods purchased. However, you will receive tax-refunds in Europe and the United Kingdom (known as a VAT or value added tax). Each European country offers a different amount when it comes to VAT, so keep that in mind when using our table. Singapore and Australia have a GST (goods and services tax) while Japan uses a consumption tax. Dubai and Hong Kong are both tax-free, however that doesn’t mean you will pay less for your bag; it solely depends on the retail price of the coveted Dior accessory.
Lastly you will find the ‘Retail Price Minus Tax-refund’ column. In this column you will find the amount you will pay AFTER receiving your tax refund. However, always keep in mind that your refund will probably be lower than the percentage shown on our table as you will need to pay a fee for an affiliate company to process your tax refund. They will charge what is known as an ‘administration fee’ that will come out of your overall tax refund amount, which means your true tax-refund amount is TAX REFUND – ADMIN FEE = ACTUAL REFUND.
Where To Buy Dior Bag The Cheapest?
As an American, your best option is to purchase a Dior handbag in the United Kingdom as you will be paying hundreds of dollars less than purchasing in your home country (after receiving your tax-refund, of course). Most individuals will opt to buy their Dior handbags in either the United Kingdom or Europe, as most of the countries located in Europe offer amazing VAT refunds. Always remember that buying from a tax-free country like Dubai or Hong Kong does NOT mean you’ll be paying less in the long run; it all depends on the retail price of the bag. Lastly, make sure you are looking for your DREAM Dior bag rather than simply finding the best pricing, as some areas won’t have the bag you are looking for (because they’ve sold out) and other places have low stock due to high demand.
After purchasing your Dior bag in another country, you will need to pay a variety of import duties and taxes once returning home. This will affect the overall tax-refund price you will receive after purchasing your iconic Dior accessory.
