Recommend me a place to buy designer handbag where I can earn rewards

Probably a stupid question, but I'm planning to buy an Lv handbag as a gift and am wondering if there is a place where I can buy this and also earn some kind of rewards, given that it is rather expensive.

I'll be using a credit card so the credit card reward is covered but I wanted to see if there are stores that reward spending on this kind of purchases.

For example, does it make a difference if I were to buy this from Saks vs Holts vs a standalone LV store? Thanks.

If you MUST buy a Louis Vuitton bag, purchase at Holt Renfrew does not count toward their reward program. Holt Renfrew's reward program is not good anyway, unless you spend more than $10,000 an year.

If you can consider other brands like Gucci, Burberry, YSL, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Celine etc you can buy online from Saks, Nordstrom, farfetch, Neiman Marcus and get cashback from ebates. 3-5% on a $3000 purchase is quite a lot.

Thanks, and I guess you cannot get LV online via Saks etc. I know nothing about handbags - I just know that my SO likes this particular one and has been eyeing it (and it's an LV). It sounds like options are limited to get any rewards out of it...

The closest would be the SaksFirst Reward Program (https://www.saksfifthavenue.com/Canada/ ... ons_EN.jsp). The only thing is that their rewards program is tied to their store credit card. There is a Louis Vuitton inside Saks Eaton Centre (http://ca.louisvuitton.com/eng-ca/point ... eaton-saks).

Does anyone know if any Nordstrom locations in Canada carry Louis Vuitton?
