Although the best time to buy is always when something is on sale, some brands simply never (or almost never) discount their products. Typically, these brands are prestigious enough that customers are willing to pay full price.

Apple has very occasional sales — including a Black Friday sale — but they are few and far between, according to iMore. The tech retailer will occasionally mark down a specific product, and although it will be discounted on its website, it’s typically not advertised and there won’t any signage about these sales in its stores. So, for the most part, you’ll have to pay the full sales prices for any Apple product.
Trendy luggage brand Away almost never goes on sale. In March, the company had its second sale of all time, Marie Claire reported. So unless you get very lucky with your timing, you probably won’t be able to get these travel accessories at a discount.
Outerwear retailer Canada Goose is known for having extra-warm coats — but you’ll have to pay full price if you want one of them.
“We are proud of the high-quality products we manufacture, and we stand behind the workmanship and expertise that goes into creating each parka, sweater, lightweight down jacket and accessory we make. As such, we never hold Canada Goose sales or Black Friday discounts, either on our website or in our stores,” the company states on its website.

Luxury retailer Louis Vuitton never has sales and it does not have an outlet store. If you find marked-down Louis Vuitton merchandise online, chances are that it’s fake.
According to the brand’s official site, “Louis Vuitton never marks down its prices, so unless they are secondhand, discounted Louis Vuitton items found online are highly suspicious of being counterfeit.”
Upscale bath and body retailer Lush only has one sale a year — its BOGO sale that happens annually the day after Christmas. If you’re shopping any other day of the year, however, don’t expect to get any discounts.
Peloton sales boomed amid the pandemic — and all those customers paid full price. According to Pelo Buddy, “the Peloton doesn’t ever go on sale, in the traditional sense. Black Friday deals, referral codes, or military/health discounts are typically the only way to save money on the purchase of [a] new Peloton bike or tread, and this just gets you free accessories.”
Tiffany & Co.
If you want to get your hands on that iconic Tiffany blue jewelry box, you’ll always have to pay full price.
“Tiffany does not conduct price promotional sales on Black Friday or any other day,” Mark Aaron, former vice president of investor relations at Tiffany, told MarketWatch.
Unlike other grocery store chains, Trader Joe’s never marks down its products.
“‘Sale’ is a four-letter word to us,” the company states on its website. “We have low prices, every day. NO coupons. NO membership cards. NO discounts. NO glitzy promotions or couponing wars at our stores. We offer the best everyday values, every day.”
