The How and Where I Buy My Dooney & Bourke Handbags

Anyone that knows me, knows that I LOVE Dooney & Bourke.  I’ve actually been asked how I can afford to buy these expensive handbags so I thought today would be the perfect day to share that info.

If  you’re happy with a used Dooney handbag, then ebay is your place.  I have bought and resold numerous handbags at ebay and you can find just about every single style there.  One tip I recommend, is to watch the newly listed and filter it to show only Buy it Nows.  This is actually a common thing for ebay sellers to do. They sit and watch for newly listed items, preying on those selling their high end products for cheap because they need a few bucks quick! Then they swoop in and buy it now and resell it for higher.

If you’re after a new Dooney purse, then you can still go to ebay but I prefer QVC.  If you’re not a member, it takes about 30 seconds to sign up. (read below about new members)

There are a couple of reasons why I buy my Dooney handbags from QVC but the number one reason is easy pay.  Yep, it’s like layaway except you get the item right away, which makes it affordable for people who would otherwise not be able to dish out $300 at once.

Every day, one item is picked to be a Today’s Special Value or TSV for short.  I happen to know that on Saturday (April 11th), the TSV will be a Dooney & Bourke handbag.  {{drooling}}  Check out these HOT colors for Summer!!!

This Dooney & Bourke handbag is called The All Weather Leather Crescent Tote. The leather is divine and is built to last.  Of course, QVC has a 30 day, no questions ask money back guarantee so if it’s not your style once you get it, no biggie.

This bag retails for $375 which is average for a Dooney handbag.  QVC’s price is $266 BUT since it’s going to be Saturday’s Today Special Value, it will be on sale for $219.80.  This is a heck of deal already but it gets better. It will also be on easy pay!!  A whole 5 easy payments!! YAHOOOO!

So here’s the rundown on costs.

  • $219.80  for the purse.
  • $10.22    for shipping
  • $14.38     for tax
  • $244.40  TOTAL

Using the 5 easy pays, I’ll be paying $48.88 for 5mths.  For someone who can’t afford $244.40 in the heat of the moment, using easy pay is a GREAT option. For less than $50 bucks a month, for 5mths, I can have a brand new Dooney.

I do this all the time for many different things.  QVC offers easy pay on TONS of products and easy pay offers can be from 2-6mthly payments.

This is how I afford to buy my Dooney purses.  So do you think I’m buying this one?  What color do you like?

    I really have a thing for white bags right now… but would probably take the black thinking the long run… because I can not splurge like this often :) Can’t wait to know which color you would/will go with.

    I would say the black one for me, because I could wear it with everything BUT if I already had a few of their black bags, I would go with the blue one. I like the style of this one, very nice! Let us know which one ya get!

    Oh, I love Dooney and Bourke’s also. And I like the style of the one you picked out too!

    Luckily I live fairly close to one of the Dooney and Bourke outlets and am usually able to pick up some smoking deals there a few times a year. They also ocassionally have some great deals on their website at http://www.dooney.com under the specials section. They even have some 50% off deals going on for the month of April.

    I have never been able to afford a “good” bag for myself. Someday I will. I got a Coach for Christmas that’s very cute but it matches nothing so I’ve never used it.

    to be honest, I’ve only ever got one amazing bag from my parents as a present, I’m still in high school, so yeah I pretty much can’t afford the authentic stuff either :(

    Hi,
    I just came across your blog when doing some searching on this Dooney Bag. I think its such a nice bag, and just received it today…I’m contemplating on whether or not to keep it because of my hubby. He thinks the bag is big and reminds him of his grandma. I personally have always had bigger bags so I don’t really understand him, lol. I am a young mom, but am now worried that the bag looks older for my age, I didn’t feel this way until my hubby said it reminds him of his grandma. I really love all the room because with having three kids someone is always shoving something in there along with the mess of stuff I always have, lol. Also how did you find that the price was retail for $375, after seeing that it makes me feel better about purchasing it and feeling like I got an even better deal. I just love Dooney bags, especially on QVC with the Easy Pay..This was my first time ordering a bag from them with easy pay, another reason I had to have it. A girls got to have a new Dooney every now and then right?! Sorry for the long posting. I love your blog!
