Now try buying another color at a luggage store and then later returning the red one.

Maybe they won't notice when they mix the very red one into their inventory with all the black ones

I don't know. The red one is sitting in my closet now. It is horrifyingly garish, yet it is unexplainedly growing on me. It's calling out to me - refusing to be ignored. I think I'm going to keep it.

Thanks!

UPS Ground - directly from Samsonite in Denver - no signature required. It was sitting on my porch when I got home on the 23rd.

MY billing cycle ends tomorrow, so I'll be ordering tomorrow. I live just outside Denver, so it should arrive rather quickly .

Kind of p*ssed out right now. Just talked with samsonite and they said they will place my order today and I should expect it in 2 weeks. Glad to see they forgot about me!

Weird. Wonder if they had problems with the big bags.

Get ready: that puppy is going to be so big and red it might be difficult to look directly at it without protective eyewear.

That may be a very good reason to order two $1k GCs and get two of the smaller ones. I think they will make some nice presents to each of the kids.

Cool Must be Excess inventory!

Those are some mean looking wheels on it.
Do they allow them on board for the Overhead?
It does look like it will be calling out to you throughout the trip.
I wonder if the color will alert the TSA for a full inspecition. Might be a good case for my meds and supplements, and other Energency medical supplies!
Should one plan on using it after Valentines Day?

Maybe that is why the deals are always on the vacation cards vs gift cards. Personally, I've never had a problem, but I guess if they started cracking down it might be an issue.

So you mean to say nobody bother to check you are paying using vacationcards to "group, special corporate, associate, or other negotiated/commissionable rates or used for reservations booked by travel agents or other third-parties" ??

I think a business that started limiting how gift cards were used (for legitimate purchases from that business) would quickly find itself on shaky legal ground.

Since businesses currently enjoy VERY beneficial lack of regulation on gift cards, my guess is that they'll play nice with them. Gift cards are already a massive profit center for companies that issue them.
