Nothing can get a group of frequent business travelers more excited than talking about luggage.
And nothing gets this jetsetting diva more excited than Tumi luggage.
Unless it’s Tumi luggage ON SALE.
Let me catch my breath from the jumping up and down I’ve been doing for the past few minutes.
Gilt.com has my favorite luggage brand on sale through Monday 9/29 at noon ET.
We aren’t just talking about odd and ends – but rather 135 pieces from their core collection, including the ubiquitous black Tumi rollaboard bags you’ll see many road warriors sporting.
As an example of how good this sale is – the classic Tumi black roller that I paid regular price ($595) for 18 months ago is on sale for $359. With free shipping.
I personally own (or presently have on loan to others) five Tumi bags (plus a couple of accessories) but I’m still eyeballing this sale to see if I need another piece.
I have been very happy with the quality of all my Tumi pieces I have owned. When I’ve had wear and tear or other unfortunate repair issues, they have happily serviced all of my bags for free under their warranty terms. I also had a sixth bag that lasted me 12 years before it finally fell apart – and that was after three free warranty repairs from Tumi and over 2 million flown miles on it. I don’t think it would have been possible to beat a bag up more!
As with most Gilt sales, quantities are limited. The sale has only been up a few minutes and some quantities are already on reserve. So shop now if you want the best selection.
(Full disclosure – Gilt gives me $25 in shopping credit for every referred client after the first purchase, which might further subsidize my hotel and/or luggage purchases through them!)
