I’ve been following Bag Borrow or Steal for quite a while. I even wrote a research paper about the company in grad school when it tried to rebrand itself as “Avelle.” There’s been an interesting development in the last month: membership and shipping are now free, insurance is included and the “steal it” option in the bag, borrow or steal framework has been restructured. Check out the details below:
“Membership – It’s Now Free
If you’ve already paid a membership fee, you won’t lose any benefits. If you haven’t already used the credited membership fee, you can still use your credit. Additionally, you’ll remain on the preferred customer list for at least a year, which not only gives you 48 hours notice before everyone else on New Arrivals in the collection but also allows you to put items on the Wait List.
Insurance – It’s Now Included
Insurance is now covered on every rental item, however this does NOT cover irreparable damage, loss or theft. Now you don’t have to worry about normal wear and tear on an item while it’s in your possession.
Standard Shipping – It’s Now Free All the Time
Standard shipping is now free on every rental item. Return shipping is also free for rental items.
Steal It –
We’ve eliminated the Steal It program for Rental. Why? Well, by doing this we are able to keep more inventory for our customers, which reduces wait list times for everyone. Great deals are available on our Private Sale , so be sure to stop by and find some fabulous items for purchase.”
Better late than never, I say. I may renew my membership, once I dig a little deeper into the terms and conditions (nerd alert!). If I find anything interesting, I’ll be sure to let you know!
