Help! Coat discount dilemma

(15 Posts)

I've seen a coat I really like and my finger was hovering over the "buy" button on the website last night but there's a sale on so I thought I'd see if there was anything else I wanted today.

This morning I got an email from a discount website with an extra 20% off the brand and they have the coat in stock in my size so it's £35 cheaper. The only problem is that the discount website has a delivery time of 3-4 weeks, and I know from experience it can take longer.

So, do I pay an extra £35 for another month or wear out of it or wait patiently for a bargain?

Ooh tough one. Link the coat!

I was about to order a leather jacket last night but the delivery is 6-6 weeks and I decided that's just too long to wait.

If you knew it was definitely going to be 3 weeks I'd ha g out but if it's 4+ id probably pay the extra £35.

Don't buy it! I guess the other thing is the size- I think Jaeger coats come up quite big? If I got the wrong size from brand alley I wouldn't be able to exchange. There's no way of knowing how long it'all be- they aren't often before the estimate though.

I'm assuming that since they've already got 20% off the outlet and 40% off selected items that the Jaeger outlet aren't likely to reduce it any more? Do people generally size down on Jaeger coats?

Can any of these codes help you?

Thanks but they're just for Jaeger rather than the outlet. Hmm. Still pondering!

I got the brand alley one. I'll keep my eye out for further discounts in the meantime then if it comes up cheaper before it arrives I can cancel the order.

Now I want a £200 coat and I cant afford it sad

Great coat, good choice

Am i just being really stupid or is it cheaper on the jaeger outlet site?
Once you add it to your basket it takes off another 20% making it £196. Or is there another discount on the other site as well?

I've found that on Jaeger outlet before - further discounts applied once added to basket. Its usually blanket offers like 'extra 10% off knitwear' that you may not have noticed and aren't taken off until you start checkout.

I've just realised my message might imply I think you're stupid, that is not what i meant at all blush I just thought I might have been figuring it out wrong.

Let us know if the coat is as nice in person. Might have to find some money from somewhere!

It's ok Darkswan I didn't read it like that! Brandalley have an extra 20% off the £199 making it £165 ish delivered.

I nearly bought that coat last year but didn't have it in my size.
In my experience outlet often has more discount added - yesterday there was extra 40pc off selected styles but I don't think that coat was included. I'd wait and watch the jaeger outlet site like a hawk for the price to drop further. And yes, size down in that coat.

I had to go down a size in a Jaeger coat

taybert Wed 05-Oct-16 16:31:59

Yeah, I'll keep my eyes open for a deal on the outlet whilst I'm waiting for the other one.
