A couple of weeks ago I posted about a killer deal on some Tumi Alpha bags, whereby you could combine a 40% off sale from Tumi with a 20% off coupon from Amazon. Through that promotion, a $595 Tumi Alpha International 20″ could be purchased for about $285.
Unfortunately that deal died pretty quickly, though it was nice while it lasted. I also didn’t realize that Tumi is apparently coming out with a new product line soon, which I guess explains the sale.
Well, it seems that Tumi is planning on changing up quite a few of their product lines, since many Tumi bags are available for 50% off from Wal-Mart, in particular the T-Tech by Tumi and Tumi Tegra-Lite lines. They’re also offering free shipping on all of the sale bags, which is nice.
A vast majority of the bags seem to be hardsided, which I’m not a huge fan of for a carry-on. And I don’t think that any of these bags actually look especially stylish either. However, if you’re looking for a larger bag this might be a good option, and I know many people prefer a hardsided case for checked baggage.
Regardless, 50% off is 50% off, so I figured I’d pass this on in case anyone was in the market for one of these bags. Even at 50% off none of the bags entice me, but again, we all have different tastes…
If you do decide to take advantage of this sale, don’t forget to use a shopping portal for bonus points. The best bonuses for Wal-Mart seem to be as follows:
Shopping portals can be a great way to keep miles from expiring in lesser-used accounts, or to help top off an account for an award. Otherwise, none of these look particularly lucrative, but an extra 300 or so miles is always nice!
