382 ratings | 37408 views
Subscribe to our channel!! Is buying a Louis Vuitton bag in Paris CHEAPER than in the US??? In this video I talk about my experience purchasing my first Louis Vuitton items which are the Neverfull MM and Emilie Wallet. I also talk about the process with submitting the VAT form (to get a tax refund!) and compare numbers at the end. I hope you guys find this video helpful, especially those who are LV lovers like me! :) xoxo, Maddy ------------------------------ Watch our other videos!

Did you have to pay anything in US custom?

It sounded like she tried selling you a fake and keeping the original.

Wow thank u for super informative vlog . I really thought it was cheaper in Paris even in the LV website in France compared to US website it’s a huge difference. Th price is cheaper but I was shock at the sales tax until my sister said u could have a refund if u are a tourist . I just want to ask u , which store (LV) in Paris did u go to ? Could u pls share ?

Did anyone inspect your bag? If I buy mine I’m wondering if I’m able to use it while I’m in Europe

Fuck you stupid bitch. Go get me a perfect wallet you bitch ass European faggot

Don’t judge her bec she’s an American , if u want to buy a designer items and pay thousands for it , u want it’s good quality as well not the one that has damage. It’s the SA that is rude , and they are in most European countries , sometimes they even think ur not there to buy at all. Of course u want a perfect one . Duh 🙄

Sara Clarke why are you being rude? people who buy LV and designer goods have every right to get the items in perfect condition as they please, this video was very informative. and usually SA’s are rude to customers by ignoring them and not giving them a lot of help

Hey. Thank you so much for the informative video . How did you inspect the Neverfull bag?
cupidgal (6 months ago)
great info.. how long did it take you to get your refund?
Tiffany Wade (7 months ago)
I agree with you on the wallet.

Thanks for the informative video and the math. Sure it is cheaper, but did you factor in the price of the airplane fare? I suppose that you went on a trip anyway and not solely for the purpose to purchase your LV items. Enjoy your bags, I know the feeling. I really think that the SA should have been trained better and never frown her face if the customer insists on true LV quality. Love your video.

Hi , so I'm going to paris for christmas and i really want to do some shopping in LV. So just to be sure its better to pay in eros over USD? an also get the refund in card over cash ? even though cash would be more but they would give it back in eros ? you didn't mentioned how long does the refund take ? or do they do it at the spot?

I am going to Europe very soon. I want to buy my LV bag in Germany ( cheaper and tax refund). Only what I am worry about s warranty. What when something happens to my bag ? Can I exchange in the USA store ?
Alexis Holiday (9 months ago)

Anita Chung I purchased my bag at the LV flagship store. I believe it's off of champs elysees in Paris.

How did you transport your items back home? I'm travelling to Paris in a month and I am going to buy the Neverfull GM. Did you just take the bags/boxes as your carry on? Thank you! :)
Holly Shaw (11 months ago)
maddy&jon Just wanted to say thank you for the great video and information! I just picked up my Neverfull GM in Paris and am beyond excited!!😍💜
maddy&jon (1 year ago)
Holly Shaw hi! I brought the box and bag with me on the plane!! I was so nervous they weren't going to let me bring it but they did! I put the box under the seat in front of me and it fit. (I sat in the middle of the plane so there was a big opening underneath.)

Really good/informative video. Thanks!

Did you have to claim these items at US Customs? I was reading that anything over $800 you do and there is a tax. So I’m worried I won’t save much.
Nene D (1 month ago)
Yes. But they are nice when you declare it when they ask, instead of lying. I paid around $45 tax for a $1800 bag. Showed them my receipts and told them truthfully the one i was carrying was an older one I bought from here. This was back in 2013, things may have changed since.

Subscribed! I’m planning a trip to Paris from Boston. Where did you guys stay? I’ve never been abroad. Planning to go with my 11yo daughter. PS profile pic and username was created by my daughter. Lol. Ppl are always wondering. I’m 40yo 😏 Do you have an Instagram account?
Veronica Medina (1 year ago)
Thank you for sharing and actually giving us the total savings. Congrats on your new purchases 😍

I've been wanting to purchase the Neverfull but I've only been reaching for my smaller bags right now. Beautiful purchases! Thanks for sharing!

Very informative video. Thank you for doing the math and conversions. You should be careful though, people can see your address on your VAT paper!

I have been to Paris twice to buy Luis Vuitton for people. The first time was 12 years ago when I walked by the store without knowing what Luis Vuitton meant; I was stopped by a Chinese couple who handed me 1600 euros for me to buy for them 2 Luis Vuitton bags. I asked them why, they said the store was on sales and only allow a customer with a foreign passport to buy max. 2 bags. I went into the store and showed the sales clerk the pictures of those bags (the couple gave me) and bought the bags. That was the first time I learned about luxurious bags. I my mind back then I only spent US$20 on a wallet and I did not imagine people could spend $800 euros for one bag. Anyway, I rather have a wallet that costs me $20 and it has $800 in it! One more thing, if you buy a Luis Vuitton in Paris, there is a great chance that the bag is made in France; if you purchase it in another country, it is usually made in Italy or other European countries.
