J.Crew Email: EXTRA 40% OFF sale items & FREE SHIPPING ends Wednesday

"Thanks!" to many of you, who shared the following email J.Crew sent this morning.

J.Crew is reminding us about their offer to take 40% off all final sale items (no min) and free shipping (on $100+) with promo code MUSTSHOP. This offer expires this Wednesday, January 26, 2011.

I am not going to lie, I LOVE this sale. You know who doesn't, my wallet. ;)

It's also worth noting that some brick & mortar (B&M) stores are offering an additional 50% off Final Sale items. :)

Will you be checking out the Sale section? Are there any items you are hoping to see or to get? Does your local B&M have "final sale" as well?

  1. I think I'll wait and look again Wednesday am to see if any of the sale items change to final sale or there are new mark downs :) I'm pretty set though clothes wise at the moment!!

  2. There was a good update this a.m., for me anyway. I was able to order the Walker Riding Boots (not fs so I can see if I really love them or not after going back & forth about them for so long). Plus, the Dorian wedges, Dixon boots, and tall Chalet boots were all there in my size. If I wasn't scared my hubs would dv me I would have ordered all of them! So on this day I showed some true self-restraint instead of true selfishness.

  3. Thanks for always keeping me up to date! This is by far the best deal at J.crew.

  4. holy crap! I just realized that within this week, I will have 6 shipments coming in from the Crew **flatlines.....**

    I was however able to get around paying for shipping on all of them, even though 2 of the orders were below the free shipping threshold - I had my PS place the orders and she waived shipping!!!

  5. Pretty big update -- I was able to get the silvie flannel dress in my size, yay, and also some fingerless gloves I'd been eyeing for a while ... also the smaller size of the Haya sequin pullover that I needed, since the M was a bit too big.

    I hated to do it, but every single thing is something I'd have bought for more than I paid, so it's OK.

    Wednesday can't get here soon enough, LOL!

  6. The update this morning was SUPER early! I was on around 4:40am and things were already disappearing out of my cart. You Aficiandas sure are early birds! I feel bad for the west coast :o(

  7. I was finally able to score the leather gloves I wanted, so I am thrilled! Like jcrewlove said, I might check once more to see if any prices are lowered, but I think I might be done for awhile. Can't wait to see some more new arrivals, especially a studded sweater I saw in a magazine last month.

  8. Does anyone know how the Stadium Cloth Cinema Coat fits?

  9. I would love it more if they would actually ship me the items I ordered :-) Can't wait to return the FS item that wasn't what I actually ordered. The strange thing was the bag was labeled one thing and the item inside something else.

  10. Finally broke down and ordered the Velvet Schoolboy Blazer in color cobblestone because they had my size. I hope I like it. Can't beat the price - $29.99 after discount!!

  11. Does anyone knows how the GIBSON Lace up fit? I want to to get them but I am not sure of the size I should get.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Gaaarrrrrr, I wanted those cashmere-lined gloves but they fell out of my cart, boooo!

    Firefighter wife, I am wearing my velvet schoolboy in Cobblestone today and I looooove it, even moreso at the sale price. I'm wearing it with the bronzed leopard cami and I look quite cute if I do say so myself (and I do).

    Next time I wear it, I think I will do a solid-color pale top and my pink pashmina.....

  13. So proud of myself! While trying to place an order Friday morning, I got busy with work and by the time I was ready to submit, the most coveted item in my cart (the whole reason I was shopping in the first place) had disappeared. I very narrowly managed to restrain myself from ordering the other items this weekend in hopes of scoring that Monday morning popback. Success!!

    I'm particularly happy because the coveted item was the Petite super 120s high pencil skirt in heather grey (bought the dusty cedar too, so pretty!) which is going to be a staple of my spring/summer workday wardrobe :) And having gone through past order receipts this morning to see what I paid for the same item in other colors, I can officially say this is the lowest price yet! ($41.99)

    Also happy because I wanted these colors when they came out, waited for sale and feared I'd waited too long. Just goes to show, with a little patience, you can always do better than FP.

  14. Does anyone own the ultra-knit leelee pants? They look super comfortable? Reviews anyone? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Elaine - thanks for the styling tips on the Velvet Schoolboy Blazer. I just hope it ships and I don't get one of those dreaded emails.

    ReplyDelete
  16. ranju, I have the leelee pants. They're comfy but are a cross between thermals and sweatpants--not trousers as the description states. I'm always an XS in J Crew bottoms and I actually sized up to an S to get the look similar to what is seen on the website. Hope this helps!

  17. swathik - The stadium cloth cinema coat runs large. Irl pics in this post.

  18. Tippy -- thanks for your review! Are they warm like thermals?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ranju: Probably close to it! They are warm :)

  20. 2 quick reviews:

    1. Wool crepe blazer: Fits well, shockingly!! Possibly a bit tight. Not sure. It's short, so it makes my bottom half a little bit boxy. Idk. Will probably keep because of the great fit.

    2. Fineline cami: feels great, albeit a bit static-clingy. The fit is fairly boxy, though. Returning for sure.

  21. sub :) Just wanted to see what the other JCAs are scoring ;)

  22. I just returned a pair of trouper pants in shadow size 6 to the B&M Northpark Mall in Dallas, in case anyone is interested, they tossed them in the closed behind the counter.

  23. Hi all, I am new to reading this blog. I ordered several sales items last night, my favorite is the Shimmer Couplet Dress, I really have nowhere to wear it to anytime soon but I love it and hope it fits TTS, for $53 I couldn't say no. I also bought an Allegra dress that came out to $29.99 after the discount, the Amour tank which was $12 and I got the wool blend tights to push my order over the free shipping mark. Hopefully everything arrives and fits. I am a full time clothing seller on eBay so if something doesn't work I can always sell it. I really hope the Couplet dress fits, I read some good things online. I wish J Crew had clothing reviews like Anthro and BR, for their prices and as nice as their site is they should, those reviews have been invaluable to me when making purchase decisions and why I rarely return anything at Anthro online.

  24. Got the jeweled ballet flats and bow and chain ballet flats for $42. So cute and such a good price! I added a dream zip-pocket cardigan in dark cypress. Love that color!

  25. I'm happy I got shipping notification for the 2 items I purchased on Fri. But man, where did the rest of the stuff go today?

    ReplyDelete
  26. katertotter, it looks like you got some nice stuff. I have the Amour tank and I love it, it looks great under cardigans and blazers.

    Both the orders that I placed on Friday shipped so I am done with this promo unless the Palermo paisley ruched halter top popbacks in my size (I got the underwire one and it doesn't fit).

    ReplyDelete
  27. The CS rep I spoke to this morning said that they usually update the online status of our orders by 7pm so I just logged in to check, and all of my orders from the 15th-22nd now have tracking numbers, even though their statuses say "Released" and not yet "Complete". Looking forward to getting all the items that were on my "looking to find" list :)

  28. Totally OT but the city flats at the Gap are now only $25 in store. In case any other JCAs like me enjoy them. Too bad they don't make 11s... they run a bit small!

    I didn't place a J.Crew order today but there's no telling what popbacks tomorrow will bring.... hehe

    ReplyDelete
  29. Em, THANK YOU! I love those shoes :)

    Adding to that - the patent colors went on sale this morning in the stores. So they're $19.99 addt'l 50% off :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. mommydearest, They are awesome! Such a deal for the price. I got some steals at the Gap yesterday too with the 50% off.

  31. Can anyone comment on the Armory Puffer Satchel (item 34104)? I'm familiar with the Mossy Oak color and the fabric, and J. Crew is sucking me in with the beautiful turquoise interior, but I'm concerned that IRL this looks like a bad Home Ec project involving a used sleeping bag.

    TIA for any help!

  32. Just in case this hasn't been mentioned, final sale is now 50% off in stores. I imagine all the sale sections are picked pretty clean by now, although with a little digging today I was able to find a cashmere luxe wrap in ivory reduced from $125 to $25. A worthwhile lunchtime shopping trip indeed.

  33. I was wondering if anyone could tell me how the Wool crepe cropped pant in city fit fits -- In the store, I tried on the Minnie pants and was a 4 in those, and in the cropped Maggie trouser I was a 2. I am dying to get these pants in the bronze twig but don't want to be stuck with pants that are too small! thanks in advance for any help! :)

  34. Em, I could not agree more. And even better, I had an email from them with a secret code - ended up being another 30% off!
