How To Secure A Telfar Bag
Despite the hype around this bag since it was spotted being worn by Beyonce herself, Telfar took to social media stating, "Price not changing." Followed by their slogan "Not for you, for everyone".Telfar bags are the new 'it' bags. Made from vegan leather and designed by black designer Telfar Clemmons, these bags have created a frenzy. There are many different sizes and colors to choose from, so it's hard to decide which on you want, but I'm here to tell you that you are lucky to get your hands on one, no matter the size or color.
Here are a few tips on how to get your hands on a Telfar bag without breaking the bank.
1. Sign up for emails
Signing up for email alerts notifies you a few days in advance of a 'drop'. They provide the date, time and color of the bags/items that will be dropping.
2. Set up auto fill for your credit cards.
Whatever method you use, this is a very important step! Notice this is step number 2 and not further down. These bags sell out in minutes (2 tops) if not seconds! Sis, by the time you get done typing in your credit card info your bag is gone! Save yourself the frustration, because even doing this wont guarantee a bag.
3. Keep "Telfar funds" available.
Nothing worse than getting the email notification that the color you've been waiting for is about to drop and you don't have the coins.
4. Set an alarm
You have to wake up! Most of the drops happen early in the morning, so its best to set an alarm at least 30 minutes before the drop time.
5. Watch a "live clock"
Another very important step! If the bag drops at 9am, you need to be refreshing the Telfar website at 8:55:59am, this is why it's important to have this clock available. Please believe me, if you are pulling up the website at 9:01am, your chances are slim to none.
6.Know what to click on
Before the drop you should already be on the website, stalking, drooling over and imagining what you are going to wear with your new bag. When it's time to go, you want to click on the current drop to refresh the page. Clicking on elsewhere or on all bags with reroute you and add seconds to your check out time.
7. Know what you want and don't be greedy.
Get your bag and dip. Resale is a part of the game that cant be avoided, so please believe the bots are working just as hard as you are. Trying to add more than one bag to your cart at at time can get you left. It's possible but not recommended. Once you add to cart GO TO THE CHECK OUT SIS! It's not over!
8. Take your time (I know its an oxymoron, but listen)
So you have your bag, you've added to cart and you are on you way to check out. You will get a message saying "you are in line" or something of that nature.
I have had many bags snatched from me at this point. I'm not sure if there is a way to avoid this but the "I am not a robot" process is crucial. TAKE YOUR TIME! As much as you want freaky fast fingers, the last thing you want is to have to do this over again. Once you complete this step, just pray to God it doesn't say sold out!
I hope these tips help! If not you can always buy a bag for resale from AngelsThriftHere
