    Default LV price increases: how often?

    How often does LV have price increases and about how much increase do they make?
    Here in Singapore, heard that they already increased their prices last May, then when i went to buy my damier speedy 25 last week, prices increased again from the last time I checked their prices last June...

    Any ideas if this is a fixed price increase they do every other month??

    ^^^ Ahh... I hate price increases... So far, it seems like there's 2-3 price increases per year at a 5% increase or so.

    hmmm... i reckon it's good in a way as they sort of keep the prestige of the brand by doing that...

    This is so annoying cause I had called them up last couple of weeks and now the price of the Damier Speedy have increased. My target saving is moving further away! I asked them if there won't be another price increase in the next couple of months and they can't guarantee it! My DH is going overseas next month so I'll have to sneakily ask him to get it for me at duty free price.

    Juicy, you may want to check that the prices don't increase again by Christmas!

    oh no, so it means that its very possible they'll increase again towards the 4th quarter of the year then...
    im afraid by the time im ready to purchase my next LV, it'll be 10% more than its price now!

    that's always a possibility so I suggest put a bit of allowance on the amount your saving up... so as to cover you and if they don't increase (which I doubt) then you'll still have extra...

    Yay! I've managed to use my persuasive powers and convince DH that he should get me the damier speedy on his trip next month to avoid any impending price hikes and cause it's cheaper duty free. I will of course give him the money that I've been saving which will be slightly over $100 short, but will insist on paying him the rest the month after. So I'll probably get my Damier a month earlier!

    Yea I'm scared of more increases, I'm saving for the
    Manhattan GM (most expensive Mono bag, but its the one I REALLY want) since I can't buy it next week on vacation I'm scared it will increase by the time I get it I was just telling my mom that last night.

    I think these bags are cool, but IMHO they're getting to be beyond-overpriced. The bags are already expensive. The prestige is already there. So, WTF? Not only are they making it harder for loyal LV fans, but they're turning off potentially new customers (like me).

    ITA! It's understandable if there are price increases once in a while but if it's true they increase a few times a year, that's really quite unreasonable. And there are so many LV loyalists which will be affected. I always thought LV is one of the more affordable high end designers. Are other designers doing the same?
