Saks March EGC

Saks is gearing up for their March electronic gift card promotion. The event is on March 12th, but pre-selling has already started. There are some brand restrictions. Our sales person told us Chanel, Prada, Gucci, and Jimmy Choo are excluded, but everything else is free game. (We think Christian Louboutin is also excluded.)

Here's the March breakdown:
if you spend... you get a giftcard for...
$250-$499 ...$25
$500-$999... $50
$1000-$1999... $100
$2000-$2999 ...$300
$3000 or more ...$450

Notice how Saks is getting increasingly stingy with the gift cards? During the January promotion there was a $1000 gift card when you spent $3000 and and $500 worth of spending would earn you a $75 gift card.

Personally I have never found the Saks EGC exciting enough to make a trip for it. If I'm already shopping on that day then fine, I'll stop for my gift card. The real deal is when Bergdorfs is doing 15 or 20% back. That's the time to make a bigger purchase like Goyard luggage or jewelry or new china. Plus they are often times giving double or triple points along with the gift card so you get even more back.

have you heard SAKS is having some charity event that everything is 25% off today (Sat)? My friend said she saw it on Jewish newspaper... I don't know if it's true...

C'mon you know as well as I do that because of the November "liquidation" sale it pissed off all of the vendors on the floor ie (Louboutin, Choo, Gucci etc) thats why they arent involved in the EGC. This is their punishment to Saks and definately NOT SFA's decision. When the vendors bottom line start to hurt alittle more they'll be all in!!
