How-Is-Chanel-Going-To-Raise-Their-Price-In-2012

Updated on March 26, 2013

How Is Chanel Going To Raise Their Prices In 2012?

Chanel is increasing their prices every year. And the most terrifying is that they increase in percentage. Imagine this, Chanel handbag that is priced $3,000 and increasing in price by 20% equals to $600.

Then if Chanel decide to increase the new price again by 20%, this will equals to $720 (20% of $3,600 equals to $720). You will see that the price changes is in multiplying as the price gets higher and higher.

(Gals, just want to let you know, I have updated the latest Chanel classic bag prices 2012) and also the latest Chanel WOC 2012 Prices

So let us ask a few questions:

1. How are the prices going to change in 2012?

2. What are you going to expect?

3. And will you save money on buying a new Chanel bag?

Just watch how Chanel is going to punish the procrastinators.

Before 1 November 2008, you could have bought a Chanel classic jumbo bag for $2,850. After 1 November 2008, the price instantly increase by 20%.

How is this price increase going to affect our wallets?

Before 1 November 2008: $2,850.

After 1 November 2008: $ 3,420.

Total price increase: $570.

During the year 2009 and 2010, Chanel announced again several price increase on their classic handbag editions. I think it does not really matter whether Chanel raise their price or not, because people will still be buying them.

They are sold not on the handbags, but on the brand of Chanel. I mean, we love Chanel.

On the first February 2012 Chanel is going to increase the ticket on the classic handbags again. Probably the price increase will be 20%.

Let's take a look how this is going to affect our wallets:

Chanel classic flap bags prices on first August 2011:

Maxi cost: $3700 (previously $3295)

Jumbo cost: $3500 (previously $2995)

Large cost: $3400 (previously $2600)

Mini cost: $2200 (previously $1950)

Reissue(227 size) cost: $4000 (previously $3600)

You might ask what the prices will be in 2012. You bet it is going to be much more expensive. With the money you will be paying because of the price increase, you could have bought an extra Chanel purse, balerina or a pair of new earrings.

This is the rough estimations how the price of Chanel handbag will look like next year:

Price 1st june 2012:

Classic Flap Medium is going to rise from $3,900 to $4,680.

Classic Jumbo is going to rise from $4,300 to $ 5,160

Classic Flap Maxi is going to rise from $4,700 to $5,640.

2.55/Reissue Medium is going to rise from $4,300 to $5,160.

2.55/Reissue Large is going to rise from $4,700 to $5,640.

What makes the classic edition exceptioneel different is that they will never go into sales. This is also the reason why the prices is driving up every year.

Furthermore, the classic editions have never really changed from the original version. The bags are timeless, it is like buying jewelry.

When the price increase will stop? Nobody knows this but Chanel. We think that Chanel is keep raising price until it becomes premium.

It is however insane to raise Chanel bags immediately by 300%, so they are doing raising it steadily.It drives girls who love Chanel and can't buy them crazy, because they keep seeing the prices flying up higher and higher.

If there is any bag you want, I advice to just buy it before the classic editions jumps again in price.

Love Chanel, but hate their prices.

You might ask what the prices will be in 2012. You bet it is going to be much more expensive. With the price difference you PAY altogether, you probably could purchase another extra chanel purse, balerina's or a few earrings.

Oh well, this is how it will looks like next year (rough estimated).

Price 1st june 2012:

Classic Flap Medium: $3,900 to $4,680

Classic Jumbo: $4,300 to $ 5,160

Classic Flap Maxi $4,700 to $5,640

2.55/Reissue Medium: $4,300 to $5,160

2.55/Reissue Large: $4,700 to $5,640

What makes the classic edition exeptionally diiferent is that it will never go into the sales. This is also the reason why the prices is driving up every single year.

Furthermore, the classic editions have never really changed from the original version. The bags are timeless, it is like keeping jewelry.

When the price increase will stop, nobody knows but Chanel themselves. We think that Chanel is keep raising price until it becomes premium.

It is however insane, to raise Chanel bags immediately with 300%, so they are doing it steadily. And while girls who love Chanel and who can't buy them, see the prices keep flying up in the sky every single year, it drives them literally crazy.

If there is any bag you want, I advice to just purchase it before the classic editions jump again in price.

Love Chanel, but hate their prices.

      @anonymous: Hi Nanita, the exact prices are not published yet. Chanel haven't increase any prices. But they might do at the end of this month. If so, some rumors are telling that the price increase will be +20%. See: http://www.bragmybag.com/is-it-true-a-glimps-in-ch...

      If so, then your maxi flap will be +20% too. The new Europe price will be â¬4,861.

      @anonymous: Hi Melvin,

      The GST is priced 1,750 EUR in Paris. And yes, of course you can still get a tax refund if you buy it from a store in the city. I actually highly recommend it, because there are much more bags to choose.

      Do you live in the US? Because you still need to get the bag through the custom. Here's an article written about it:

      Getting Chanel Bags Through Customs

      And on tax refunds in Europe

      Chanel Bags Tax Refund Europe

      When are you planning to buy the bag?

      Now that I know you can get a tax refund, I'm definitely gonna be buying mine in Europe this summer. Do you know how much the GST costs in France? And can you still get a tax refund if you buy it from a store in the city and not from the airport?

      @anonymous: Hi Mya, omg are you planning to buy the m/l beieg claire in ghw. I love that bag. The bag cost $4,400 USD (price after February 2012). got a gossip from an SA that they are going to increase price in 1 december or 1 february and it is +$600!!!! (omg, omg, omg).

      More more, the nearest Chanel boutique in your area is the city St. Louis. The address is:

      NEIMAN MARCUS

      100 Plaza Frontenac

      63131 St. Louis

      Tel +(1) 314 567 9811

      You should have no problem getting the bag, but if give them a call to be sure that you don't go all the way there and then come back with empty hands. If they don't have in stock, they can order it for you, and even send to your home (not recommended, sometimes I heard from gals that the postman have lost your Chanel package!).

      Did you know you could get up to 25% on tax refund if you buy the Chanel in Europe? More about this: http://www.bragmybag.com/chanel-classic-bags-on-sa...

      I am so excited for you, please let me know when you're going to buy the bag and send me some juicy pictures=P.

      @anonymous: Hi Lunaloca,

      It depends on your prices, but I think the Chanel classic flap bags are the best to start with. This bag will continue to increase in price is one of the most wanted bags, you will definitely make money in the future if you buy it (increase in value). But I also got an article about Chanel 3, it's a big that is quite similar to the Chanel jumbo, but a bit cheaper and still look nice.

      Any more questions, feel free to ask.

      @anonymous: maria i am not not calling you trash!!! unless you think you are and i am not being rude when i say that. you obviously can tell the people who have money (the way they dress, THE WAY THEY CARRY THEMSELVES, and their jewelry) and the people who don't and are wannabes, like I stated before these are the people who walk around like they are the ****. Rich people have nothing to prove. I personally love the look of the chanel handbag, I love the hardware and I like things that you don't see a TON of people carrying. It is also a classic and something that will last forever if cared for properly and can be handed down to your daughter. I wish I would have gotten the YSL cabas chyc tote bag handbag instead, now that I see EVERYONE carrying a louis. That was the point I am making. I am getting a chanel bag later in the year and paying cash (ok kerry). I used to want a coach bag but after I saw how many people carried one I changed my mind and went with a louis. That is the point I'm trying to make people!!! It does stink that some people were able to get the chanel handbags at such a cheaper price. I am waiting because I want the mui mui brown leather top handle bag with bows on the side and the ysl handbag. I am sorry to everyone I offended and I do realize that came off really offensive. It is my opinion though. Just really pay attention next time you're out shopping. Maybe you'll see what I see.

      @anonymous: Kerry, I'm not saying anyone and everyone who has a louis is trash sorry if it came out that way or if you took it that way. Even bag bag lady said chanel is higher class. You're not going to see nearly as many people carrying these bags. On the other hand, some people I've encountered carrying a louis ARE trash quite frankly and their bags are more than likely fake or as you said they probably bought theirs out of the back of a van. I however wouldn't know anything about that in being that I bought my louis from neiman marcus at the houston galleria. Some women you see at the mall are ghetto, trash, scags whatever and that is why I think there is a price increase so women like these won't give the brand a bad name. And I just looooovvvveee how these are the women who walk around like they are the ****.

      @anonymous: Trash? My dear snotty caaa, you are one sick puppy! You most likely bought your LV out of the back of a van. With your attitude, I'm sure Karl Lagerfeld wouldn't wipe his butt on you. Get a life. Too bad you can't afford a Chanel.

      @anonymous: Everyone is carrying a LV nowadays, because they are somehow AFFORDABLE for most girls. Some teenagers in high school carry them, spending their whole year savings. But Chanel is different story, higher class =D

      Why don't you get one...?

      @anonymous: yes, but Jessica here is the trick...

      I avoid the tax...

      Many girls do the same, here is how it works.

      You buy your bag in Europe on the airport and get tax refund.

      Where you from btw?

      @anonymous: Hi Denis Smith,

      I am so happy for you. I think you made the right choice choosing the silver hardware. I have tried the one with gold hard ware, but for me it was just too shiny.

      I know I know, they purposely do that! One time I went to paris to buy my Chanel jumbo bag, but it was weekend and it was sold out in 6 Chanel stores I went. You know which one was sold out?

      The medium/jumbo Chanel with silver hard ware. However, they do got the gold hard ware in stock!!

      Thanks for sharing <3

      Just purchased my medium flap in black caviar with silver hardware for $4400 at Nordstrom San Diego. The store manager did mention that they expect the price for the medium flap to go up again. I love my bag! But the price is getting ridiculously high. Get it while you can. They don't have a lot in stock, each store get a few at a time.

      Hi, I went in to the Chanel store in Toronto today, and they just raised their prices about 3 days ago. The medium chanel flap went from $3900 to $4200.
