    Default Gilt Groupe Sells Fake Designer Bags? (the rumor)

    I highly doubt it!

    I've ordered many items from them (gilt noir member) and I've never questioned authenticity. Only issue that I've experienced was noticing that the sale items' original price was marked up.

    I Gilt. Amazing site and fabulous deals.

    This article is from NBC-
    Online sample sale site Gilt Groupe has redefined "high noon" for most people in the style set with the site's insanely covetable flash sales -- offering everything from Alexander Wang handbags to Zac Posen gowns for serious discounts, all kicking off at (you guessed it) noon. However, during our morning Gilt browsing, we were shocked to come across a firestorm of comments sparked off by one "Zun39," who'd written, "The COLE HAAN handbag I ordered ISN'T REAL COLE HAAN. I will keep it BUT SHAME ON YOU."

    After last fall's "scarf-gate," in which Gilt was accused of inflating its sale items' original values, we had to wonder if this was the next scandal to rock the e-commerce giant. A quick e-mail to Gilt elicited a pretty definitive response. Gabriela Meriles, Gilt's communications director, explained, "We have already contacted the customer who wrote the initial complaint and are waiting to hear back as to why she believes she has a fake. As we do not work with third parties and deal with all the designers directly we certainly stand behind the product’s authenticity."

    Gilt's CEO, Susan Lyne, has even gone so far as to join in on the online debate, assuring shoppers "Gilt has never sold fakes and never will sell fakes." We'll go back to spending our hard-earned money on Gilt.com, and will keep our eyes peeled to see if Ms. "Zun39" defends her claim.

    I agree Jennifer. There is no way gilt would sell a fake.

    My first thought was, maybe just an unhappy shopper. Maybe a bad experience to bash on a great site like gilt.

    I wonder if that Zun person is going to respond.

    Sounds like a crabby customer just out to create a scene.

    Who would say: yes you sold me a fake, shame on you BUT i will keep it!!!!!

    Sounds like someone had buyer's remorse.. I've purchased quite a few things from Gilt myself and I am very pleased with their fast shipping and selections. They definitely don't sell fakes!

    wishlist..

    .vernis alma mm in pomme d'amour
    .artsy mm
    .python galliera pm
    .monogram galliera pm

    Probably some ebay buyer that is used to using that excuse and getting he way with a discount or refund AND getting to keep the item! You can't yell "FAKE" everytime you don't like your purchase!
