The big designer sales happen in May and December, usually, which makes September logically one of the worst times to be looking for discounted designer bags. In a broad sense, that's true—sale selections are relatively meager. If you keep checking in, though, you can find some gems at great prices, often because bags have popped back up after returns from earlier shoppers or other vagaries of inventory. In those instances, great bags can be had at genuinely low prices, as long as you're vigilant.
This week, we found a lot of bags that fit that description, so if you click and find something sold out, don't give up yet. It might pay to keep the tab open for a day or two and refresh occasionally. You never know when something will come back in stock.
