This afternoon Ralph Lauren sent out a 30% off discount to friends and family. Turns out that someone on the RL team forgot to read the fine print. Upon trying to purchase the $17,000 purple croc Ricky Bag --I promise it was only research-- the code wouldn't work.
Turns out the Ralph Lauren folks made a mistake with the fine print. Purple Label and collection items, including crocodile Ricky bags were not supposed to be included in the sale. When I called to point out that the code wasn't working I was first told, too bad. Later a manager came on the phone and said that they would honor the the promo because a correction is warranted.
To get 30% off most items on RalphLauren.com and Rugby.com use the code RFLA2008. If the code doesn't work for the item you desire call the assistance hotline and say that you spoke to Maya and manager, Jaime. Whomever you speak to should be able to extend the discount.
Below is the faulty fine print that can save you $5,100:
