    Default Saks Vs. Neiman Marcus: A Pricing Story

    Wow! I have just been shocked. I know that sometimes retailers will have slight differences in pricing, but never anything like this.

    I've been coveting a new Prada Messenger bag with a leather strap. It's on Saks for $620.

    Prada - Nylon & Saffiano Leather Messenger Bag - Saks.com

    I checked out Neiman Marcus because they sent me an email on Prada's new spring collection and WHOA! Their price for the same bag was $925!

    HOW CAN THIS BE? You bet I contacted online customer service and after alot of waiting, they came back with this remark: "Linda Richardson: Unfortunately, we do not handle pricing issues."

    Unreal! Have you seen any other huge pricing discrepencies like this? It's a 60% higher price and no sale involved! YIKES!

    Why don't we start a campaign contacting Neiman's and asking them about the pricing discrepency?

    That's so odd. ..such a huge price difference. I wonder if it's a mistake.

    I have never purchased anything at Neiman's. there is a really large Neiman's Last Call center here, but the few times i have been there, it all looked like way overpriced crap. I do like Saks and the stuff they have.

    I'll keep an eye out on the item at Neiman's and see if it changes. I thought it might be a mistake too, but they never admitted that. Wouldn't it be bad if it were and people actually payed 60% more! Yikes!

    As of this morning, the price hasn't changed.... Don't get overexcited about the Neiman's Saks comparison. I have purchased shoes at a Neiman Marcus and they were $20 or $30 less than the Saks prices. There are probably small difference both ways...but this is so huge! It just pays to compare prices....especially when you shop online 'cuz it's so easy!

    This is such a crazy price difference! And that's why there's TBF, for alerts such as this

    Thanks kmarny! I kinda feel like emailing them and asking if they know of the mistake.. but then Saks might increase their price!

    $620 seems more realistic when you review the pricing on their other messenger bags. The higher price (than normal) is due to leather strap and details. I don't think Saks is in error but I haven't found it anywhere else yet to compare!
