There's a new hot page online, according to Alexa.com, which tracks such things, and that page is the Coach Factory outlet store.
"Welcome," it reads. "You've arrived at the members-only Coach Factory online store, where you'll find great values during our limited-time sales events!"
Indeed, with a tempting "First time ever!" text atop a "50% off clearance" pic touting 100+ styles just added, this Internet Deals Examiner went ahead and clicked on the "Become a Member" tab and entered details like first and last name, email address, zip code and password to get started.
Double-clicking on the "get started" took me to an "almost there…" page that requested street address, city, country and state info.
I chose to leave the checkbox next to "Receive emails about future promotions and events" checked, and noted that Coach told me...
*You are signing up to receive emails from Coach Factory and for a chance to be included in future Coach Factory online events. Invitations are not guaranteed.
Next, in big bold yelling letters, I was told:
THANK YOU FOR REGISTERING FOR A CHANCE TO BE INVITED TO FUTURE SALES. YOU ARE WELCOME TO SHOP OUR CURRENT SALE IN PROGRESS!
There's also a sale event countdown clock that says, as of this writing, I've got less than 24 hours till the current sale ends.
Oh my goodness, checking out the totes and such on sale, like their Signature Strip Tote with $268 original price next to a $140 now price next to $70 with 50% discount price is almost making me want to whip out my American Express card.
Especially seeing the red "Almost Gone" signs next to totes going for as low as $66.50 or swing packs for only $42 with the 50% discount.
I have to ask myself which ones I even like, or if I'm just palpating over a sale price. Why, oh why, don't they have affiliate links? They only have "invite a friend" by email and make 10 bucks when they make their first purchase.
They've even got backpacks, wallets and wristlets, some of which have the "sold out" grey sign beneath them now. To think of how much I paid for my Coach wallet in my local Summit Mall Coach store…
Hey, I didn't know Coach made bangles. Lots of the wallets are almost gone. No doubt, my wallet has been blessed by God -- and lots of those are a lot less expensive than the purses and big bags.
They've even got suitcases and watches and shoes and pencil cups. Oh my, my, my…give me strength.
