J.Crew's February Catalog {double check it!}

"Thanks!" to New York & Paris (in this post), who shared the following news.

The latest J.Crew catalog sent to customers may have a unique promotional code (for something like 20% off on any order, free shipping with no minimum, or $20 off a certain amount).

The code is found on the back cover. New York & Paris also shares in this post: "The catalog with the discount code had a bright orange "cover" over the regular catalog, making the code pretty difficult to miss. ..."

So double-check your catalog to see if you got a unique promo code too! :)

  1. Nah...just checked mine and nothing. I have seen them as an insert also but nothing in mine. Which is tough since I just ordered 2 things online and spent quite a bit in store on Saturday...

  4. Josanne & Elaine: I didn't get one either. :( Although I did run to check the back, in hopes I had just missed it.

    WellFedFred: hysterical!!! ;)

  6. Nothing for me. I was so excited to read this and my catalog just got in the mail too. Oh, well.......

  7. So not well played, J. Crew. If you gave me that 20 percent code, I would be buying a ton of stuff right now. At least I have my $25 reward. I can buy half a T-shirt with that.

  8. Can't believe I actually got my catalog earlier than others. Normally mine lags by like a month...

  9. No code for me. Does anyone have any memory of J.Crew offering percent off promos on the website this time of year or is it generally a holiday thing?

  10. If someone has one they aren't using, I would gladly buy it from you! I never seem to get these things...

  12. catalogue delivery is spotty at best, I didn't get one for January -_-. I won't hold my breath!

  13. The catalog with the discount code had a bright orange "cover" over the regular catalog, making the code pretty difficult to miss. I can send a picture of it when I get home tonight.

  14. I got a catalog a couple months ago after a few years of getting none. I highly doubt I will get a February catalog, let alone one with a code!

  15. i had to pick one up from the store so i doubt there's any code on mine

  16. Hi, Josanne, thank you, you we too kind! As it happened, when I left this morning, I had enquired of our doorman if any of the building staff had noticed any catalogs from J.Crew ( which they know about from helping me, um, disguise the arrival of packages). When I got home, there were 5 JC catalogs on my doormat, mine plus 4 others addressed to various other occupants of the building! None bore a code. Now I have to tactfully get the surplus catalogs back to other people's mailboxes, and I'm also wondering if I'm on the way to solving the mystery of why my catalogs arrive so erratically.

  17. I didn't notice a code on my catalog, which I received yesterday. The lack of codes post-holiday was making me remember once upon a time when we used to get the $20 off $80 or $100 in the catalogs. Those were a treat!

  19. I received my catalog at the end of last week, but sadly there was no code included.

  20. I just received my catalog today, and nothing for me either :(. Too bad, because I would have placed a nice-sized order if I had received the incentive.

  21. got mine yesterday but no code either. bummer!

  22. Last I checked, I was 50 points away from a $50 giftcard...any chance they might give it to me?

    Am pondering the double cloth metro coat in oasis green. Is the color close to a kelly green? Also, how is the fit. I normally wear a petite 0 at JCrew but the sleeves on my 2008 P0 lady day are irritatingly short....so I thought I might go with a regular 00 or a P2. The website says the metro is slimmer than the lady ...is that true?

  23. Hi Annapurna, I just ordered the metro coat two days ago after I was able to try one on in store that someone had returned. It was a 6 tall, which is my normal coat size. I could barely get it on and could not button it. Even an 8 would not have fit comfortably, at all. I ordered a 10 tall which is unprecedented for me. I have a lady day in an 8 tall which fits well. So, yes it is slimmer than the lady day, in my opinion, which is ridiculous. The lady day already runs so small... why make the metro even smaller? I don't get it. You may want to size up from your lady day size.

  24. Just got mine today and no such luck. On a different note, does anyone else think that the bikini bottom on page 83 looks like a diaper?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh, and yes the color is very close to kelly green. I saw it in person and that is the color I ordered... love it!

  26. I never get these codes on my catalogs! I will love to have one - there's a bunch of things I want to try out.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Annapurna, I have a review of the Metro coat here.

  28. I would buy a code off someone if they aren't using it. I want to go shopping!

  29. OT, but a few brand new items went straight to final sale today... I don't get it! The coaster stripe skirt and one of the new no. 2 pencils to name a few.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I don't think I've even gotten a catalog since the ballet-themed catalog, now that I think about it.

    Oh well.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Um, how exactly did they pick who gets a code. I NEED one and I get nothing.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I forgot to say that I got a good laugh (out loud) from the reading the back of mine.
    It says, " J. Crew takes its commitment to the protection of our environment seriously...(they go on about the paper content of the catalog)

    I laugh because of their after-christmas box fiasco, when they were sending me tees in a box that my sis could fit in...

  33. I actually contacted J.Crew about the code (hoping that if I asked nicely they would share it with me) and they said there was no code on the February catalogs but they had received lots of inquiries from would-be shoppers. Let's hope there is a promo soon. I am so ready to use that rewards card!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Nothing for me either. I was hoping for a promotion or something to come up soon. I just saw Michelle Obama in the "Grass Green" Pencil skirt. Gotta have it!

  35. @ Regalness, I love FLOTUS and all but I hope she doesn't wear anything that I want. That's a sure fire way for it to get sold out before I get a chance to get my hands on it (if and when it goes on sale). better get your skirt quick.
