If you aren’t a member, you can sign-up here to get in on their offers (this is my referral link so I get a credit if you make a purchase).RueLaLa TPGI have used Tumi for years and have been happy with my loyalty to the brand. I feel like they are well-made without being too flashy. I wore my last T-Tech Carry-on roller to the ground and almost shed a tear when I got my new Vapor one, similar to the international Carry-on currently on sale for $299

    It is not invitation only. Anybody can sign up at

    Is it possible to get away with the size one up from intl carry on? (28″) I believe

  • Aanarav Sareen

    Definitely not invitation only. It’s been publicly available for a while.

  • Robby

    Who said it was invitation only? The link he posted is just a referral link.

  • stansso

    This entire post is kind of shameless.

  • Betsy

    Ummm. Did you read the post? “Ruelala is an invite only site”

  • thepointsguy

    I didn’t realize they were now open- they used to be invite-only. Will re-word!

  • Robby

    I literally read it 4 times and just now saw that. Fail!

  • thepointsguy

    How so? A luggage sale on a site geared towards frequent travelers?

  • thepointsguy

    Didn’t realize that- changed the wording

  • stansso

    No mention as to why this is a good deal.

    No due diligence on your part to see if this is the best price:

    “As always, shop around to make sure you can’t get a better deal elsewhere”

  • thepointsguy

    A lot of items sell out quickly so I wanted to get the post up. It is someone’s responsibility to make sure they’re happy with the price they get- even if I do some research, better offers could exist. I wouldn’t post if I felt something was a bad deal- the one I highlighted above is $299 for a bag that has a retail of $495.

  • stansso

    I don’t think you’d post this as it’s own post if there wasn’t something in it for you.

  • Ed

    Thanks for posting, I’ve been waiting for this sale for a long time!

  • thepointsguy

    You’re free to think whatever you want, but as mentioned in the post- I use Tumi and think it is a great product, but expensive at face value. People are free to sign-up on their own- trust me, I’m not paying my mortgage with RueLaLa credits ;-)

  • Ben Price

    Tough crowd! Tumi is a great brand, and I’m glad TPG posted because, frankly, I’m too lazy to check all these sites everyday (ruelala, hautelook, ideeli, gilt, myhabit….). I’ve been waiting for the Tumi sale for awhile and refuse to scan constantly!

  • thepointsguy

    Doubt it- a lot of international carriers are big sticklers on sizing and 28″ inches wouldn’t fly (no pun intended)

  • Ben Price

    Just bought that “Tactics” International Carry-On. Pumped.

  • ZJ

    God forbid he make money on a blog he invests his life in!

  • stansso

    I estimate that he’s made well over $1,000 off of my affiliate link clicks. This is just a bad post.

  • Justin

    nobody makes you come to the site….i love this site….he can post whatever he wants..

  • MiamiMike2

    All you haters should stop reading his blog if you don’t like his posts.

    The deal is a really good deal. They are selling the Gen 4 carry on which is basically the alpha collection which costs 595. The Gen 4 is the outlet version which retails for 495 and sells at 375 when it goes on sale, so 359 is a really good deal.

    My questions is- would anyone recommend the international version to the regular one? I don’t travel internationally very often besides trips to the Caribbean on AA which the allows the larger version. Going to get the regular one unless there is a big benefit to the international that I may not know about. Thought?

  • Claire

    Do you not understand basic economics? With any for-profit business, the basic business model is to provide a valuable product/service and make money from it. I value TPG’s product, it’s not economically sustainable for him to continue providing it for free, so I am glad he is profitable and therefore he can continue to do this work. If you don’t value the service you don’t have to consume it (it’s a big Internet out there, find another site to read that suits you better if desired), but it is naive to expect someone to forever provide a valuable service for no compensation.

  • stansso

    You obviously don’t get my point. He phoned this post in.

  • DWT

    Personally, I prefer Tumi’s international versions to the frequent traveller ones, simply because the smaller size means they will always fit in the bin without a lot of repositioning (even on older aircraft without the bigger bins, like older A320s)… and they are much smaller than what most people bring on board, so you’re not going to be nabbed by overzealous contract workers at security or at the gate.

  • Barbara

    The regular one is almost 16″ wide. I know Delta and United want 22x14x9 so if you are a rule follower, you want the international one for carry on.

  • DWT

    I’m with the ones who appreciate this post. I love Tumi luggage (tends to last forever, for those of us who travel a lot), and these flash sales tend to sell out quickly.

  • AndreLaplume

    I give Brian credit for keeping his calm in the face of consistently stupid attacks upon him. Start your own blog.

  • shermanxia

    it’s probably cheaper to buy in Tumi outlets. For example, that backpack is 69.99 regular price, as compared with 109 on this RueLala website.

  • George

    Under what criteria are you basing that figure from?

  • CubsGirl

    Thanks for the post (have been on the fence about a new bag and have been considering Tumi)–really appreciate your putting it out there.

    To those posting negative comments: yawn.
