J.Crew cardholders should be receiving an email for 25% off *and* free shipping (any order! no minimum!) with a unique promo code. This offer expires September 11, 2012. The fine print includes:
*Offer may not be combined with any other promotion and does not apply to previous purchases, alterations or the purchase of gift cards. Offer valid 8/28/12-9/11/12. Offer does not apply toward J.Crew Collection and third-party branded merchandise. The J.Crew Rewards Program is provided by J.Crew and J.Crew may change the terms of the program at any time. The J.Crew Rewards Card cannot be applied to previous purchases. Rewards cannot be used as payment on the J.Crew Credit Card account. Subject to full terms and conditions of the J.Crew Credit Card Rewards Program (see jcrew.com).It is unclear if you have to use your J.Crew card as payment. It is mentioned in the email image but not so much in the fine print.
Also, "thanks!" to Cousy (in this post) who let us know that if you do not get the email you can still have the code applied. She shares:
I'm a cardholder but as of 2:00 hadn't received my cardholder promo email. I called customer service and they told me that I could phone in an order between now and Sept. 11th and they would honor the 25% discount and free shipping.I just want to say, good move on J.Crew's part! It is nice to see such a perk to card holders. Yey for all those with the email!!!
Hope this helps for anyone who hasn't gotten an email yet...
Did you get the card holder email from J.Crew today? If you are not currently a card holder, do you think this promotion will entice you? Please share!
