I’m starting a new series called “Deal or Frill”. The idea is simple, I’ll post a story and you tell me rather you think the purchase is a Deal: A sale favorable to the buyer; bargain (Informal definition from thefreedictionary.com)
Frill: Something that is desirable but not a necessity (Informal definition from thefreedictionary.com). Though for our purposes, a “frill” will be something that is simply not a deal.
I would love to publish your Deal or Frill story. Use the contact page to send me your story. Place “Deal or Frill” in the subject line.
Recently I discovered the Miche Bag- I incredible purse – that will allow you to change your purse look to match your outfit in minutes. The Home Shopping network offers the Miche bag for $99.00 which included 2 shells and the base bag.
I was at my local salon/boutique to redeem a gift certificate. In combination with certificates purchased from Ksdk Deals I was able to purchase the Miche bag and 2 shells for $50.00. The local retail price was $124.85.
Denice got a great deal with her certificates, and anyone in the St. Louis area can benefit from KSDK deals. But based on the retail price of $99, is this a deal or frill? One bag…endless designs. I don’t like the hassle of switching purses so the convienience of a base bag is intriguing. This may be a great deal for anyone really into matching purses, shoes and hats.
What are your thoughts? Deal or Frill?
Let me know in the comments!
PS: I am interested in male responses as much as hearing from the ladies. Men, would you purchase this as a gift? If you have no idea, ask the closest female for their opinion 🙂
