Darlings, is it time for a J.Crew coupon code?

Yes, it is that wonderful time again! :)

A big "thanks!" goes to Anonymous at 5:37 PM in the "J.Crew Stores: Additional 40% Percent Off Sale" post who let us know that J.Crew is offering free shipping on orders of $150+ with promo code IJY-150. This offer expires 8/2/08.

  1. Hi All: Just a quick FYI. I think Jcrew changed their gift cards from the traditional green. When I went to pick mine up yesterday it was a paler green background with a more yellowy-green flower design on it. I kind of miss the plain old green with with the logo.

  2. blumre: I got the solid dark green gift card yesterday, but had received the one with the flowers a couple of weeks ago...they are using both. :)YAY!!!

    Alexis and all: it appears as if this new code coincides with the Fall Collection that is to make it's debut in the next day or two or three...it would be really easy to make this minimum if purchasing the new items full price. :)

  3. Blumre & FabulousFloridaMommy: The new gift cards sound pretty. I can't wait to see one (or get one!) ;)

    FabulousFloridaMommy: You make a lot of sense mentioning the timing of the code and the new arrivals. I can easily see how a purchase of a single jacket could surpass the minimum required for free shipping. ;)

  4. Alexis: they really aren't that nice sadly. The color kind of looks like puke/pea green. I was a little bummed out.

  5. Has anybody been able to order anything from the new catalogue? I can't get anything to come up on the website when I use the item numbers...seems very poor business practice to not have items ready when catalogues are in stores...

  6. thank you anonymous! I'm sure I will be using this at some point in the near future!

  7. la belle helene: myself and a few others have been able to place orders from the new catalogue by calling in. cs reps take the order down on what they call a 'pre sale form'. not sure what that means....but it works! :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. la belle helene: the manager at my b&m said the new catalog items wouldn't be in the computer until Saturday. However, one of the sa's in the same store said that the new catalog would be "live" sometime tomorrow. I'm assuming the manager is correct, but who knows? I was one who did a pre-order through the store's red phone.

  11. blumre: the last time i bought a gift card for someone (from the store) they had navy blue ones with the coppelle paisley design on it...and they had some others that matched their prints at the time (it was early spring). i got my friend the navy one with the paisley on it (very pretty for a gift card). i thought they looked pretty cool...:) they still had the traditional dark green ones too...they should keep those, i don't think guys would like the girly looking ones :)

  12. i'm so tempted to use the coupon code for some of the new fall stuff since some of it is catalog only...BUT i still am afraid that ordering online might still be a little sketchy with all their problems still ongoing...i'll be checking out what the stores have first ;)

    ReplyDelete
  13. FYI: CRITTER works on ANY purchase over $100 (on a Mock Checkout)...even without a Crewcuts item in the cart...YAY!!! Now to just get it actually DELIVERED to you... ;)

  14. Hi! I just tried the CRITTER code and then the EXTRA20 code and they both work together on purchases over $100!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. anon at 10:55 - how were u able to use both coupon codes together?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I entered CRITTER code first and clicked update order (this took off the shipping). Then I entered EXTRA20 in the same box, clicked update order, and it worked!

  17. Speaking of gift cards, are people getting them in lieu of refunds? I just got a "thank you for your order" email that looks like a invoice but has gift card as the product. The amount is somewhere around the amount of a refund I was expecting, but not quite, even accounting for the return shipping deduction.

    Thing is, I don't want a gift card. I asked for a refund. These items don't fit, and I'm tired of the trial and error of paying exorbitant shipping back and forth to get the right fit. I would like to avoid J. Crew until I go on vacation again and can visit a store in person.

  18. Using both codes isn't working-
    The code you enter is the most recent one it uses. If you enter the free shipping one, and then the 20% off one, it adds back the shipping charges.

    ReplyDelete
  19. opps, i did't realize that. Sorry, I tried. Too bad they won't let multiple codes work!

    ReplyDelete
  20. It is 5:07am. New items have arrived online! They are so nice!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Again, J.Crew offers free shipping code because system is running slow (Code: FREESHIP). I wish I could use free shipping code with 20% off code...

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think I might throw up a little.....I just bought the fiona in pink, white and pale almond for23.99 each..........

    I didn't set my alarm or anything. I just woke up at 5 central (i think this is the update time today) and there they were. They were adding more as I was looking at them!!!

    Now, if only I get them...

    ReplyDelete
  23. extra20 still working but freeship is not even though it flashed across the screen.....

    ReplyDelete
  24. still fionas left in 3 colors....

    ReplyDelete
  25. Another shocking event has transpired.....

    I called and there was NO WAIT period. I told the rep my three order numbers and that FREESHIP wasn't working even though it showed it on the screen while the site was slow. She is crediting me for all three orders.

    She checked on my Katie jacket and it will never come :o( BUT, if it were between getting the navy Katie and three Fionas.....well, I ended up doing well in the end :o)

    I am getting credited for my shipping on that since they charged full shipping when they shipped out the slub silk tank (adorable BTW!!).

    I guess if you call early in the morning, things are easier. I am in some odd J Crew world that only exists from 5-6 am.....

  26. Most items are not showing up in the final sale section. You have to do a search for them. Fionas are in the men's area. I had to do a search for the popover blouse...

  27. BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THE SALE SECTION! I spoke with a CS rep because my Kelly Jacket showed up as available again (even though they just short shipped me on it), and she said they have 1, but it probably really isn't even there. She went on to say that the new system is not displaying inventory correctly, and just because it shows up online, does NOT mean it is actually in the warehouse available for purchase...I find this to be EXTREMELY deceptive on their part! They are taking money for items they aren't even sure they have, and then take forever to give it back...please be careful! She asked if I wanted her to place a new order for that 1 jacket that "might" be there, and I said no...I just cannot go through another 2 weeks of hell with another order...it's absurd, and takes too much of my time.

    I had no wait time on my call this morning, but alas...the rep wasn't even able to help me on a couple of issues, as they are apparently being dealt with by support services, who don't come in until 8am...sigh...I knew it was too good to be true. ;)

    I am past the point of even wanting the Kelly in Bright Flame, the Joelle Blouse in Regal Purple, or the Fiona now...the more I have to deal with all the issues that have gone along with them, the less I even desire to have them...

    *I also posted this on the Crewcuts Sweepstakes Post. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Not that I wouldn't be VERY overjoyed IF they did come...but I won't go through the hassle of ordering them off the website again...if anyone sees the Kelly in Bright Flame (Small) or the Joelle Blouse (size 2) or the Fiona (size 4) at a STORE...PLEASE let me know! THANKS! :)

  29. Can anyone comment on the quality of the sale sections at the Cambridgeside , Atrium or Burlington stores?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Exciting. :) I will use one of these to buy the Gracie gown! Thanks to everyone for posting them!

  31. Does anyone know if the Atlanta J. Crew stores have the extra 40% off? And how long is this going to last, just this weekend or until the end of next weekend (hopefully!)?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Has anyone tried the new "toothpick" style jeans vs. the "matchstick" style?
