Who likes spending any more money than they have to? I know that I sure don’t, and if you’re here reading this page, I feel pretty confident that you don’t either.
Over the past few months we’ve seen an increase in the number of people coming to SwedishBackpack.com looking for Fjallraven sale or promo news. Although we don’t sell any of the products here, we enjoy helping other Fjallraven enthusiasts find reliable information about the brand … and sometimes that means sharing where to find Fjallraven on sale whenever there is a good deal.
First things first, you’re rarely going to find a Fjallraven bag sale at the brick and mortar establishments that carry the products. One of the biggest reasons why is because there is already such high demand for items like the Fjallraven Kanken bag. These stores are already selling plenty, so why would they feel compelled to offer a discount?
The answer is, they don’t.
Looking for Fjallraven Sale Prices Online
To find real Fjallraven sale prices, you’re almost always going to have to search online. But not just anywhere – not all online retailers are created equal. Some provide much more competitive prices than others, while a few less trustworthy sites are even selling counterfeit Fjallraven products and trying to pass them along as the real thing.
If you see a website that you’ve never heard of before offering a ‘Fjallraven Kanken backpack sale’ at prices that seem way too good to be true, you should definitely use a little extra caution before making a purchase. As a general rule of thumb, the best Fjallraven sales are going to be on reliable high-volume websites like Amazon.
Buying Sale Fjallraven on Amazon
Amazon has a number of great things going for it when it comes to offering Fjallraven on sale. First off, the website is so huge (there isn’t a larger online retailer anywhere) that they can get great volume discounts from the manufacturers. This savings is then passed on to the customer in the form of Fjallraven sale prices much lower than you’ll find at a brick and mortar location – and certainly less than the suggested retail value.
Secondly, Amazon has one of the largest selections of Fjallraven products – including dozens of colors of the Fjallraven Kanken bag – in the world. Sure, one or two stores in your local mall may have a few Kankens available, but you won’t find anywhere near the selection that you can get online.
Finally (although by no means the last reason why shopping for Fjallraven sales on Amazon makes sense), Amazon has been repeatedly recognized for their industry-leading customer service. If you’ve ever had to deal with an Amazon customer associate, you probably know what I’m talking about. I’ve never had a bad experience, and any issues have always been resolved promptly with very favorable outcomes.
Warning Signs to Look Out For!!
Like I mentioned before, the number one thing to be careful of when shopping for Fjallraven sales online is dishonest sellers. That’s not to say that all small retailers are bad – because that’s far from the truth – but there are definitely some bad apples out there. And I don’t know about you, but when it comes to me spending my money, I would rather be safe than sorry.
Before you jump all over the first link offering Fjallraven on sale at too-good-to-be-true prices, here are some things to watch out for:
No Sales History – does a Google search turn of plenty of reports from satisfied customers? If not, is this just a fly-by-night website that will be gone in a few weeks, leaving you with a knock-off Fjallraven product? Not even the best Fjallraven sale is worth this risk.
Ridiculous Shipping Charges – Amazon offers free shipping on most purchases, with a 2-day options available in many cases at no extra charge. If a website is trying to charge $15-$20+ for shipping a Fjallraven Kanken rucksack, they may be trying to rip customers off.
Extreme Delivery Time – If you ever see an online retailer estimating that shipping could take 2-3 weeks, proceed with caution. Sometimes on small websites this means that the retailer is waiting to sell enough of the items in order to purchase them wholesale from their supplier. In some cases the estimated delivery could wind up taking much longer, or the goods (and your money) may never show up at all.
Way Too Low Prices – You can easily find good Fjallraven sale prices by searching on reliable websites like Amazon, but if a website’s prices look too low to be legitimate, there may very well be something fishy going on. In this case, make sure to pay extra attention to past customer feedback.
There’s no two questions about it – Amazon is by far the best place to find reasonably-priced, new Fjallraven products online.
But one of the most desirable things about Fjallraven bags – especially the Kanken backpack – is how well they age. While a brand new Kanken exudes style and top-notch craftsmanship, it’s hard to compete with a well-worn vintage bag.
In bigger metropolitan areas, many of our readers have reported finding tremendous deals on gently-used Fjallraven items at smaller upscale resale boutiques. The feasibility of this option will positively vary from reader to reader, however, as those of you in smaller cities and towns may not have much luck searching out preowned Fjallravens.
Fjallraven Sale – Final Thoughts
At the end of the day, you’re probably going to be much better of shopping from a reliable retailer who is known for offering Fjallraven items at great prices, rather than spending hours searching for a sale from a small, unknown website. Not only are websites like Amazon able to offer authentic brand-new Fjallraven products at prices likely to be competitive with even the best legitimate sale, but they can also give you the peace of mind in knowing that you’re shopping with a trusted retailer who will be there with stellar customer support in the event you have an issue.
Is it worth the risk to save a few dollars from a site you’ve never heard of before? Probably not. Luckily though, with Amazon’s consistently low prices you won’t even have to think about it.
