I wrote about my frustration with Holt’s over the whole why don’t they have a reusable shopping bag available to their customers last year.

And now they are doing THIS – in order to get a limited edition designed by Diane Von Furstenberg reusable Holt Renfrew shopping bag, you first have to buy $500 (before tax) worth of stuff.  Sure, the bag comes full of wonderful goodies from exclusive designers and such but still, why not just have the bag itself on offer for NOT $500??
