Rated 5 out of 5 Another winner!
I received my bag today and all accessories were included. Everything appears to be in brand new condition... nice leather smell, no strange odors, no stains, and no scuff marks. I'm extremely picky and always check my "as is" bags thoroughly. I've purchased several "as is" bags and have only returned a few of them. My positive experiences definitely outweigh the negative ones.
Rated 3 out of 5 by jlgabbert I tried to like it
I wanted to like this bag so badly, but it just didn't work. I ordered it 'as is' knowing the chance of getting any accessories was probably pretty slim. I didn't receive any accessories and I would have been okay with that. The reason I sent it back was the broken clasp. I might try again one of these days.
Rated 1 out of 5 by bunkie123 Bag arrived broken and heavily used
This is my third attempt at getting my review of this product approved. I ordered the grey "as is" and it arrived in terrible shape. Bag was used/abused, broken clasp, no accessories, no dust bag, no warranty card and smelled of smoke. I ended up buying at retail to ensure I received everything. I already own 2 of these bags and am happy with them. For "as is", buyer beware, is all I can say.

Great purse. However, it is heavy once you get very few items in there.

This is my 7th Dooney bag purchase. I just received it today.
I love the smell of a new Dooney - yummy! - and I love the look and feel of the quality materials used on every inch of the bag.
Sadly, I can't say that about this bag.
1) It smells like a cross between tar, motor oil, and some type of strong chemical.
2) The liner of the coin purse looks like red plastic.
3) The liner of the bag looks like cheap, thin bandaid gauze material.
4) When I fasten the clasp, it pulls and causes the leather in the back to pull and get and get wrinkled in an unattractive way.
5) It's not big enough for me. I wish it had an inch or two more width on the bottom. I am a big bag girl, and there is barely room for my things.I have to pack everything very precisely and can't just throw stuff in. Also the strap needs to be longer.
6) The top doesn't close, even with the clasp fastened it is gaping opened, so it's perfect for pick-pocketers.
7) The leather isn't nice to the touch like my other Donney's. It's my first pebble leather purchase (normally I get lambskin or the Florentine leather), and it may be my last. Not a fan, not sure why people rave about the pebble leather. Feels cheap and over processed.
I do like the color. I got light pink. I think it is a nice, perfect, girly bubble-gum pink that will look great as a pop pf color against a black or neutral outfit.
As another reviewer posted/suggested, I have put the bag and accessories in an airtight bag with a bunch of dryer sheets thrown in - inside and out - for 24 hours - to get rid of the chemical smell. Hope it works.
On the fence about whether I will send it back or not. A lot of it depends on the smell going away or not when i open the bag tomorrow afternoon. Currently, the smell is so strong I would be embarrassed to take the bag in public.

Unfortunately, I took a chance on an "as is" bag in the saddle tan. It can without the accessories, no dust cover and it was clearly used because there was a pen mark on the inside lining of the bag. Sadly, it will be going back. Wish I had lucked out.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikitalex Love this handbag
So pleased with my new Dooney...love the saddle color. I took a chance with "As Is" and I was pleasantly surprised that everything (dust cover, key fob and coin purse) was there. My handbag was in perfect condition. It just arrived today and I can't wait to use it. I would definitely order this again....It will be hard to decide what color.

I received this As Is bag in the taupe, BUT that is ALL I got - no key fob, no change purse (very disappointing), no dust bag, no certification card. I am not sure the bag alone is worth the reduced price. It is in good condition but not in original packaging at all. I have tried As Is bags before with better luck. May not try to roll the dice againl
Rated 3 out of 5 by mamakoi Incomplete items
I purchased four of these bags, knowing I was rolling the dice as to what I would receive and selected colors to go with my work clothes. I have the Elephant one for which I paid full price. Unfortunately, only one the "As Is" bags came complete. The Bordeaux looked used, the leather on the sides wrinkled and did not have the accessories. The others were in good condition and had the registration card but did not have the accessories, The Teal had the key fob, the Natural had nothing. I do use all of the parts of the bag. The Navy was great! I kept the Navy, returned the others. The savings is considerable but think I'll wait until I see what is on sale in the stores before I do this again. I gave the rating three stars. Most of the bags were good, but missing parts. They weren't as advertised.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mallory C So worth it!
I'm so glad I purchased this bag. I've been excited to get it as soon as I ordered it. I prayed I would get all the accessories. And I did! Only a tiny minor scratch on the hardware. I ordered the Navy. It's such a classy color and the gold lock looks great with it. My husband was also happy that I purchased it at $100 off! I own one other DB bag that I've had forever it seems. This one is much more grown up for me now that I'm 27. I really needed a classic bag that says put together. I love how soft the leather is also. Yet its sturdy enough to last a lifetime. I'm just so happy with it! Being that it's my first "as is" purchase. I'm very satisfied with it. It's so worth the wait. It's nonsense not to buy. Oh and I'm a plus size. It is hard to find well made bags with a good amount of length in the strap.

I just received the bag,it's very large, larger than what it actually looked on camera. I ordered the "Oyster" in the as is, it came w/the key fob and little purse, no dust cover. There is nothing wrong with the bag at all. The leather is very nice pebbled leather which I am sure will soften with age and use, the protective feet on the bottom are a nice touch and a MUST. Now regarding the color "OYSTER" it does not look at all what it looks like on camera...the color is a LIGHT TAUPE period. Nothing exotic about that On camera,it appeared to me at least, like a pinky taupey, light gray...not even close although a great neutral color for all year,but not what I wanted, so I am sending it back and that's probably why the last person sent it back as well. Nice go to bag, but will not re-purchase. I think for $200 w/tax and S&H it was a OK price,not a great bargain
Rated 4 out of 5 by Michelle G pretty good
I was so excited to rush home for this delivery! I had read both good and bad reviews on the "As Is" status of these bags. I had been hoping for the best, and decided to give it a try because I have been wanting this bag for so long! Sadly, the coin purse which I had been hoping for was not included. There was no dust bag either, just the silly key chain. I gave the bag a good check to make sure it was not damaged like some had experienced. I will most likely keep it because it is about $100 savings and the bag is very nice, but it is disappointing that people who returned this bag have stolen items from the bag that should be included as one other reviewer has mentioned.
