Mrs. Smith Meet Mrs. Jones March 19, 2008

I came across “Bag Borrow or Steal” while visiting another website. I saw the banner ad and couldn’t resist checking it out. Apparently, it’s like Netflix only the handbag version. Basically, you can become a member for as little as $5 per month (that’s for the one year membership), or rent as a guest, and you’re given access to designer handbags (and jewelry) that you can “borrow” for a week, a month, or a year. There’s no time limit for the rentals. If you enjoy the item so much that you want to “steal it”, you can contact the company for a purchase option. You should note that shipping and handling is not included and runs $9.95 per item.

Here’s an example:
The Coach Bleecker Elisa Laced Leather Slim Duffle (that’s a mouthful) has a retail price of $748 according to the Coach website. BagBorrowOrSteal.com gives you the option to rent it for a weekly rate of $32 for members or $53 for guests.

So if you’ve just got to keep up with the Jones’ and can’t afford to buy that handbag that you’re coveting, you now have the option of owning it temporarily for a fee. As for me, I’ll stick to those bags that fall within my affordable range.

Hi there,

I read your post and as the CMO of Bag Borrow or Steal would like to offer you a trial or promotional discount to give renting a try at our website – let me know if you are interested!

All the best and keep writing!

Jodi
