The Great (Weekly) Exchange {looking to sell}

This post (of weekly posts) is for individual members who want to swap/sell/share among yourselves. This post is where you can mention your items and outside listing/ auction site (like eBay and eCrater & the corresponding user ID).


Please note: this posting is not for resellers, retailers or businesses. If you are a reseller, retailer, or a business, your comment gets automatically deleted & you will get publicly called out on it. :( So instead of this, simply do not post in the Weekly Exchanges. Thanks in advance for your cooperation! :)


Please note that any transactions are independent of this blog. (Especially since you will be using an outside listing/ auction site like eBay or eCrater.) I have no dealings or interactions with any of the potential communication, listings, or transactions. :) Moreover, please limit comments about items to swap/sell/share to the "Great (Weekly) Exchange" posts. (Refer to "A Quick Note to J.Crew Aficionadas" post.)

Do you have any items you would like to swap/sell/share among yourselves through your outside listing/auction site?

Sidenote: What's up with JCAs writing "sub" or "subscribing" as their comment? It just means they are subscribing to all the comments (which are then automatically sent to their email) in that particular thread. This way they can stay aware of all the comments posted. :)

This is the weekly "sale watch" post, to help each other find sale items at our various local J.Crew stores. ;)

If you are stopped by a J.Crew store this past weekend to see what's available (if anything!) in the SALE, or to see some NEW ARRIVALS {sigh!} in person, maybe you might be willing to share that with us in this post. In particular, if you could share with us a few of the noteworthy items that are available, at what prices, and potential sizes the store is carrying (as well as the store location)- that would be fantastic!

Also, please let us know if your local store was/ is carrying an additional percent off sale. Thanks in advance!!! :)

In Madewell Stores & Online: 30% Off Sale

"Thanks!" to many of you, who let us know about the following promotion this morning.

Madewell is offering customers to take an extra 30% off sale with promo code SWEET. The offer expires May 26, 2015. The fine print includes:
Offer valid on the purchase of sale items in Madewell stores and at madewell.com from May 22, 2015, 12:01am ET through May 26, 2015, 11:59pm ET. Offer not valid on phone orders. Offer cannot be applied to previous purchases or the purchase of gift cards and cannot be redeemed for cash or used in combination with any other offer. In-store discount automatically taken at the register. To redeem online, enter code SWEET in the promo code box at checkout. Limit one promotional code per order. Offer valid in the U.S. only. Terms of offer are subject to change.
Make sure you double check the sale item page to see if the item is marked as "Final Sale" or not. Some sale items are and others are not. It is easy to overlook this and then get stuck with an item.

B&M stores were offering an additional 20% off sale, so it is nice to see it jump back to 30% off. They also have some items lower priced in stores than online. For example, the  Cutout Sundress in Stripe (item C0619; $148.00) is on sale online for $99.99 and in stores for $89.99. By the way, I own this dress and it is gorgeous! I know the cutouts on the sides are not for everyone, but if you were a white tank underneath, it actually looks like part of the dress' design.

Lastly, Madewell is also offering 60 days of Spotify Premium. This offer expires June 28, 2015.
