Deal du Jour: For Love 21 Caron Handbag

Dear For Love 21,
Your weekly must-haves are truly seductive. Might you consider offering free shipping on "The One Item I Need to Get This Week"? The Caron Faux Leather Handbag would make the perfect purse for transitioning from summer to fall, and it is sitting patiently in my shopping cart. Yet it's hard to justify paying shipping charges on top of the $29.80 price tag for one, simple bag (as lovely as it may be). Just say the word - that you'll ship it free - and I'll hit "buy."

Yours truly,

>> Caron Faux Leather Handbag, $29.80 (plus shipping)

i could not believe this bag when i first saw it in my google reader. i thought to myself that the budget babe was finally giving in to her financially responsible self, but you've certainly tricked me this time. i say do it.

That bag is fantastic. Since they offer free shipping on orders over $75 you should just go ahead and order a couple of more things to get ready for fall! Don't you love that rationalization!

Shipping is such a killer. A buzzkiller, that is. Drives me nuts, especially when you have to pony up $15 to ship a single skirt or something daft like that, and it arrives PARCEL POST!

I'm with Kimberly - can't you find a few other beauties to add to ye olde carte?

Trust me, ladies, I usually have no problem finding $75 worth of duds to get that free shipping! It's just that they have cute stuff every single week, so some free shipping every now and then would encourage me to buy more often :-)

I feel like that too alot about the shopping. They never have promo codes. I was just gettting ready to get this bag, but now it's SOLD OUT on the website.

I', sure forever21 will re-up again in a day or so. I know this bag has got to be a replica of another designer bag, somebody clue me in.
