Something Special with your Online Order {double check inside!}

"Thanks!" to many of you, including Caitlin (in this post), and WMM, who let us know that in their orders they found something extra...

Inside their online orders was a "Thank You - Here is a gift for you as a token of our appreciation" card with two one-time-use codes for 20% off a $150 purchase. One that says "FOR YOU" and one that says "FOR A FRIEND". The codes are good through October 31st.

This is a pretty awesome offer from J.Crew. I am completely jealous of those who received it. If I got one, I would be my own friend and use them both! ;)

Double-check your catalog to see if you got a special offer too! :)

  1. Yes, I got a card. It made up for the fact that I ordered the small gingham perfect shirt and then they ran a 30% off sale promo 2 days later. I'm in Canada so I don't know how to go about getting a price adjustment (if it is even worth the hassle) so this makes up for that because there are things I want from the fall line.

  2. Hi Alexis! Something makes me think anyone who just ordered in the last week may get one - there was one in both of my packages!!! Wahoo - I may be able to afford my fall list!!!

  3. Oh no!! I just made three separate purchases on jcrew.com in the last 4 days! All their promos and codes are not good for my wallet!!! :)

    1. same here and most of my purchases were FP new arrivals (if they even look at things like that...maybe it's just random?) It would have been great for my fall wishlist, though! oh well.

  10. I will check the box I received yesterday (haven't had a hance to open it yet, gasp!) and the Crewcuts order I'll receive in a day or two, but the package I had the other day had nothing like that in it. Boo hoo. :(

  16. Received a package yesterday - nothing. I had ordered two full priced things along with some sale items. Expecting a second package today but I'll bet once again there is no discount card included. I never get anything - no codes, no gifts. I've spent so much money and no love from the Crew. Boo.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I got the cards too with my order received today (it was from the 30% off sale items promo). Good to save them for must-have fall items and can't wait for a sale occasion :)

    1. want to add that I'm in Canada. Maybe this is for Canadians orders only?!

      Delete
    2. Yeah, I'm in Canada as well and got the codes.

      Delete
  18. I wonder how on earth they decide who gets a code and who doesn't? My package yesterday did not have a code, either. Sad.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm in Canada as well--maybe it's a Canadian order thing?

    1. I'm from the US and I got the code!

  20. Crap, I better re-check the packages I received yesterday... but I'd certainly love to share in a code of anyone has one to give to a friend! I'll share if I have one!

  21. I pick up a package tomorrow. I guess I will take some boo hoo tissue with me in the event my box has no addtl love inside.

  22. I have two separate orders from the recent 30% off sale . They are not due to arrive until next Mon. and Tues. I wonder if the cards are for Canadians as we pay more and we have to wait a much longer time for delivery...its about ten business days on my orders. I will be checking my packages well for cards ... Carolyn from Vancouver

  23. Awwww! I just got a package today and no cards...I would love a code for something big I want to buy..:)

  24. I got two packages today and no discounts of any kind in my packages. Whatever. I got the Janey Flats. Here's my take on them:

    I ordered the higher of my 2 sizes and these are too tight. I can put them on but my foot looks squeezed in them. And the design isn't flattering to my foot or ankles.

    The Persimmon is RETINA BURNING neon orange. It's ugly, loud, juvenile and did I say UGLY?

    The Dusty Jade is nice...but still doesn't look rich enough for me. I think if the shoe was better quality these would look better. They just look cheap.

    The patent isn't nice and shiny like most patent shoes. Looks very low quality.

    The soles are paper thin.

    The gold heel looks like cheap gold metallic paper of something glued on.

    These shoes are a huge disappointment. I considering ordering the tassled loafers, but I'm done. Too expensive for what you get. I'd rather spend more for something that's going to last.

    1. Thank you for posting this! I guess I will skip the Janey flats. They look so pretty online, though.

      Sorry they were disappointing!

  25. Hello...I received a package yesterday and another today, sadly, no appreciation card! :(

    Congratulations to those of you who were lucky enough to receive the card! Enjoy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh boo, I had 2 separate orders arrive yesterday and today, and neither had a code. I wonder how they pick who receives them and who doesn't. Well if anyone has an extra code they are willing to part with, I'll gladly take it off your hands. I've been waiting to purchase the navy schoolboy blazer, but at $198, it's been sitting in my shopping cart for months just waiting for a promo code.
    I would really appreciate it! You can email me at cpo.012286@gmail.com
    Thank you.

  27. Straycat - I hear you on the persimmon - I found them a little loud. I did love the jade colour in the janey flats - I thought they were pretty. But I know exactly what you mean - I hate it when I order something, expecting it will be a certain way and then it arrives and it is just not that nice. sigh...

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'll take an extra code if anyone has one to share!! kelly.sweeney@gmail.com. :) I have a whole list of things to purchase...

    ReplyDelete
  29. WMM.....I hate to sound so mean, but for $178.00 I expected alot better quality! I also got the safari cat long no. 2 skirt and it seems crazy tight. What's up with the sizing? I have lots of no. 2 skirts but this one seems tighter. GEEZ!

    1. Well you are making me feel better, stray cat, since if someone with your great shape finds things tight, I don't feel so badly, heehee!

      I agree - to charge those price, especially for the cdn prices I pay here, I expect a lot! My problem is I just can't find those same nice colours elsewhere. I feel Mickey has us over the proverbial barrel at times!

  30. I got two packages yesterday and nothing but have another one coming maybe later this week. I will check carefully. I have something I want to buy which is new and FP but if I get more than 1, I will share.

  31. I received 3 packages this week and I got nothing. :(

    ReplyDelete
  32. If anyone has a code they aren't using, I would love to pick up a few fall items. Thanks in advance! Eapahlke@gmail.com

  33. Boo, got my order in a few days ago and a whole lotta nada ...

  34. JC...are you paying attention? Look how many JCA's are looking for a 20% off incentive to purchase. Just run a FP promo!

    1. It's been SO long... maybe even since Christmas! My cart just keeps growing, but no code, and I decide to keep holding off. Code... and I definitely bite.

      Delete
    2. I feel the same way, there's a ton of stuff I want, but nothing I feel like paying full price for. At least 20% off would be something!

      Delete
  35. Also...look how many of us place two or more orders and pay shipping costs. If they have a sale make it a big one right from the start...no adding items days later to get us to order again. Put all they have in the warehouse up and give deep discounts and clear the summer stuff out... I feel better now.

  36. one shipment arrived monday, one yesterday, and nope, no codes. no included catalog, either, which was strange. thanks for taking all my money and giving nothing back, j. crew!

    1. I believe they stopped including catalogs with every order a while back - sorry you didn't receive a code though :-(
      Like someone said above, just run a 20% promo already!

  37. We've received about 8 packages here in the past 3 days (including today) and nothing but packing slips! Oh well - most of it is going back!
    Glad to hear you all saying sizing is crazy - I thought perhaps I had gained all my weight back. Took out the tape measure to be sure! Lol

  38. Nothing in packages 1 & 2. One more is still on the way so fingers are crossed.
