My primary carry-on is a Tumi bag, and I’m quite happy with it. Tumi doesn’t have the most stylish products in the world, though their bags are durable and understated. I will say that I think that Briggs & Riley has better customer service (though I don’t love the design of their bags) than Tumi, and also that I think Tumi is overpriced.
That’s why I think it’s worth pointing out when Tumi has a discount. For example, I bought my Tumi carry-on a couple of years ago when I was able to stack two promotions, which meant I could purchase my $600 Tumi bag for under $400. That seemed like a much “fairer” price to me.
Tumi luggage doesn’t go on sale often (at least not their popular lines), which is why I think this promotion is worth pointing out. You can do good by donating to charity while also getting a discount on a Tumi bag.
Tumi is offering 25% off any regularly priced purchase if you make a donation of at least $15 to Waves For Water, a charity which aims to provide clean water to communities around the world.
To be eligible for the discount, simply go to Tumi’s website and add the $15 donation to your cart.
Anything else you add to your cart will automatically be discounted by 25%.
The 25% discount only applies in the same transaction in which you donate $15 to charity. So you can’t donate $15 and then apply the discount towards a future purchase.
Do keep in mind that it was announced last week that Samsonite is purchasing Tumi, which does make them part of a larger brand. I shared my thoughts on this the other day, and don’t expect it’ll have a big impact on the quality or price of Tumi luggage, though it may increase the number of places it’s sold.
If you’re in the market for a Tumi product, this is a very nice offer. It’s a way to do good while also getting discounts on some great products. We don’t see Tumi discounts often, so this promotion is worthy of consideration.
I wouldn’t read too much into the timing of this in relation to the Samsonite takeover of Tumi.
Do you plan on buying something from Tumi for 25% off?
