Samsonite is one of the most recognised luggage brand names in the world – which probably shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the company is the world’s largest travel luggage company, with a heritage dating back 100-years having been founded back in 1910 in Denver, Colorado.
The breadth of brands owned by Samsonite ranges from high-end names like Tumi to affordable entry-level brands like American Tourister. But the core Samsonite brand does a good job of balancing great design and quality with an accessible price point.
And those prices are even more accessible this weekend thanks to a couple of great offers available on Samsonite’s U.S. shopping site (other savings can also be found on the UK site).
An extra 20% off all purchases
Use the code EXTRA20 at checkout to get a 20 per cent discount on all Samsonite purchases as part of a special President’s Day sale. The offer is only available on the Samsonite U.S. website and ends on February 18, 2020.
Up to 50% off select products
In addition, Samsonite is offering up to 50 per cent off select products – again these huge discounts will be coming to an end on February 18. The ‘Armage’ carry-on range is currently being offered with a massive 60 per cent discount by combining these two offers, while the Fortifi range has a limited-time discount of 70 per cent.
Simply use the code PRESIDENT.
Our Carry-On Pick: the Armage 21″
Sturdy, lightweight and expandable. The Armage 21″ also features a Right Height™ Handle that gives you eight points of adjustment and a USB port so you can fit your own power bank (which is removable so it complies with international ‘smart bag’ regulations).
Of course, the Armage has a TSA approved lock, including a built-in cable that will secure the two front pouches. Our pick is the upright version with two inline-skate wheels but a spinner version is also available for the exact same price.
Other products in the Armage range a wheely garment bag and a slightly smaller 19″ carry-on.
Our Checked Luggage Pick: the Lite-Box
Weighing in at only 7.49 lbs, the Lite-Box 30″ is a full-featured checked bag that will give you plenty of room for even the longest of trips. We like the modern, contemporary design made out of woven Polypropylene, the spinner wheels and the fact that both sides have fully zipped compartments for easy storage.
The Lite-Box is available in classic grey or dark blue and smaller sizes are also available.
Free Shipping Offer
If you’re shopping on the U.S. site, Samsonite will ship orders of $99.01 or more within the continental United States for free. Standard shipping takes just 2-6 business days.
If you’re shopping in the UK, or elsewhere in Europe then sadly you’re not going to be able to take advantage of these President Day sales (as this holiday obviously doesn’t exist in Europe).
However, if you sign up to the Samsonite newsletter you can immediately take 10 per cent off your purchase and in some countries, you’ll also get free shipping and returns.
Win a $200 Shopping Voucher
Fancy winning a $200 shopping voucher off your next Samsonite purchase? U.S.-based shoppers can volunteer to take part in Samsonite research interviews – anyone selected will get the $200 voucher. You can apply by following this link.
