Rated 1 out of 5 by CindyD No longer a great product. Sooo disappointed!!
Why oh why did you change this product? Like many of the other reviewers I have purchased this agenda for years and years, and every year in October would transfer the last few months' pages to the next year's binder. It was convenient to take pages out to keep handwriting tidy, and the inside pockets are a must have. Seeing the changes are SUCH a disappointment. Spiral binder, lower quality paper, no pockets, no thank you. Will now have to hunt for something comparable elsewhere - and if the only options are spiral, I will choose one at a lower price point. Will check back next year just in case this company responds to customer feedback, the sentiment appears to be consistent with many of your repeat customers. Thanks

Rated 1 out of 5 by NicoleB Why change a GREAT thing?? Ugh...
Just as I do every October/November, I went to my local Vera Bradley store to purchase my new agenda for the year. I can not even begin to express how disappointed I am in this "upgrade" to the product. Years prior, the agenda came with a GREAT three ring binding, hard cover and interior pockets. I can not even begin to express how unhappy I am that they have decided to go with the spiral binding. Its the worst. Spiral bindings get caught on the things in your bag, bend and break. When the sales girl handed me the "new" agenda, I actually laughed at her. while I flipped through the pages, I could tell that even the quality of the paper has changed. I get that the company is trying to save money, but I don't see how you are going to sell any of this years agendas. Such a disappointment.

This is twice in one year that Vera Bradley has managed to disappoint me. I have used these agendas for a number of years now. I was quite disappointed to receive my new agenda at the same price point as in past years, and it not being of the same quality at all. The 2015 version is not a binder -- it is spiral bound. There are no inside pockets on the covers, and the paper is not great quality. These are all details that I enjoyed and used in past years. This change in style is very similar to the change of the Christmas ornaments in 2013. Vera Bradley hits it right the first time. There is no need to make changes in the quality products that we are used to. For 2016, please consider going back to the original concept.
