Extra 40% Off Final Sale Online (extra 50% Off in-stores!)

"Thanks!" to many of you, including Yvette, who let us know about the following new promotion.

J.Crew is still offering an additional 40% off Final Sale with promo code GET40. This offer expires Tuesday, January 29, 2013. The fine print includes:
*Offer valid on the purchase of final sale items in J.Crew stores or at jcrew.com from January 21, 2013, 12:01am ET through January 29, 2013, 11:59pm ET. Offer not valid in J.Crew Factory stores, at jcrewfactory.com or on phone orders. Offer does not apply to previous purchases or to the purchase of gift cards and cannot be redeemed for cash or combined with any other promotion. Discount on retail purchases applied at register. To redeem online, enter code GET40 in the promo code box at checkout. Limit one promo code per order. Terms of offer are subject to change. 
As many of you already have mentioned, J.Crew is offering an additional 50% off Final Sale items in most brick and mortar (B&M) stores. Wahoo!!! However, the selection is pretty limited at this point. So it is nice to see an increase to the percent off online.

Plus, J.Crew has a nice update to their Final Sale section online (click here) earlier this morning. Lots of merchandise for everyone (1100+ for Women and 560+ for Men).

Did you check out the Final Sale section today? Were you able to snag any amazing deals? If so, please share! :)

  1. It was nice to see the 40% discount AND restock this morning. I did get the white wool cafe capri and Collection skirt in abstract floral. Yay! Hope they ship.

    1. I got this skirt. Definitely needed to size up though b/c waist is so high. Glad I did!

    2. I agree Genny. I did too when I saw the measurements for it from CS. Quite a few of the Collection skirts seem to run small.

  3. got the sterling skirt in crimson maple on popback, ordered a few non final sale items to go along for try-ons

  4. Oh dear. This must stop soon!! I picked up the everly cap toe t-strap in ivory and the everly (also cap toe but not called that) t-strap in vintage grey (and black). I am a new convert to the everly, having tried it for the first time in my B&M a couple weeks ago. (Much more comfortable than the Mona, but like the Mona, size up by 1/2.) Also got the collection photo floral cafe capri, which I have tried on in store but waffled just b/c I am afraid of whites. Decided that I need to get over that.

  9. I was able to have the 40 off applied to the promo priced Nolita jean jacket, so I'm getting it for $66! That's half off! I rarely see these go to sale in a wide range of sizes/colors. I also got a top for my daughter for a fab price. Just missed out on an adorable sequined sweatshirt for her unfortunately. Got snatched out of my cart. :( Also added in the lightweight beige snood as a ride-along. Can return it if I want, but that could be a great item worth keeping even at FP.

    1. Thanks for the info about the jean jacket! Promo price, not final sale, so was able to order two sizes to try out. Fab!

    2. Congratulations to you both on getting the Nolita at such a great price! I've been contemplating it ever since it went to promo-price last week, and it's an even better deal now with the 40% off.

    3. Hope it works out for us!

      @FFM, I was considering trying it out last week too! Glad I waited.

  10. Has anyone noticed that many of the clothes online are altered or tacked to fit the model better? I normally go crazy during these sales, but J. Crew isn't even a guaranteed fit anymore. After I got stuck with a lousy fitting dress last year, I almost have an aversion to final sale clothes now. Sad.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The sad thing about them tacking the clothing is that it sometimes leaves small holes in the item. Last year I purchased a blouse and school boy blazer. I got home and noticed multiple holes in both that most definitely wouldn't close up with washing! For the price I paid for the schoolboy blazer I wasn't going to keep it with any imperfections.

      Delete
    2. Yes, tacking the clothes often leaves small holes. I tried to buy something off a model at BR recently and was told no because they knew it was damaged from being on the model.

  13. It's nice to see 40% off online again, and hopefully they'll end up lowering the shipping minimum, too. My store is still running the 50% off, so I plan on checking out the sale section when I go in to make a return later this week.

    3. Oh, yes - thanks ladies. I bet didn't see it since it went back to full price. Really glad I snagged the golden sun on promo a couple weeks ago. The Fresh Plum color is not for me but I do really love this coat!

  19. I finally scored the collection cashmere polka dot sweater in the fuchsia/navy color way for all of $89. On top of that, the cocoon coat in smoky coral (which I have yet to see in real life, but for $139 after discount, I couldn't pass up), as well as the Aggie boots in suede (another blind buy at $77). Hoping for the best here, but I couldn't pass up these prices. Super excited.

    1. What's up with her hair? Wig?

    2. She got a new new haircut. I had my moment with the fringe last year. Fringes or bangs never, ever work out but it looked better swept to side as she had it recently.

      Delete
    3. That belt is probably collection from the collection B&M store or like you said, made specifically for her.

      Delete
    4. As for the hair I think she got a weave. It looks way thicker than before!

    5. Her hair definitely was not flattering. Her make up and dark navy coat she wore , however, were gorgeous!

  23. I need to stop. No really this time!
    My morning haul:
    Perfect shirt in chambray polka dot,
    Perfect shirt in medium gingham in timeless turquoise,
    Collection cashmere tee in heather dusk, Indian voile popover in vibrant fuchsia (for price adjust),
    Deck-stripe board short (wrong description so fingers crossed that it ships),
    Refined crystal-bow buckle belt,
    Refined silk-cashmere wrap in neon azalea and fresh turquoise,
    Cabochon and crystal bracelet in frosted holly,
    Shawl-collar stripe sweatshirt in ivory,
    Collection cashmere Tippi sweater in heather dusk,
    Tall café capri in dazzling sun,

    Even though I know the deals are better in store, I am still satisfied with the prices that I paid because chances are my size wouldn't be available in store anyway.

  33. at least the checkout was working properly for me this morning.. managed to stock up on a few basic tees and a cashmere hat that i lost over the holidays. almost didn't go through with it once the taxes and shipping were added on, but after the 40% off plus an extra 6% from ebates it was still worth it.

  34. Visited my B&M (Park Meadows, CO) yesterday and got a long merino cardigan $14.99 and Jackie Cardigan - Mustard Yellow (GSU) - $25.00. The sale section was huge, even the SAs said they can't wait for it all to be gone. if anyone is looking for the Liberty Shirt - Wiltshire print they had about 5 for $49.99 BEFORE 50% off. I know they get stock from Aspen store and seemed like there were new items. They had the zigzag and polka dot sequin tees, lots of the felted wool minis in navy. Worth a call if you are looking for something specific (303-649-9620). I did try on the Boy Shirt in Colorblock which is cheaper online but did not like where the color changed made it boxy and stick out.

    Replies
    1. JRSConifer - Last in-store price for the boy shirt in color block was $24.99 and cheaper than last online price of $29.99. ITA agree about the color change & visual boxiness. However, I was forced to order something as a ridealong for fs. I'm happy w/the way I styled it in this post.

    2. Gigiofca, I must admit I was on the fence about it but it was marked $39.99 and I was short on time. I may stop in tomorrow since they had a bunch of them and try it on again if it is still there. Thanks for the price update and the styling ideas.

  38. I have a question. How can inventory update when this is final sale and has been for a long time? Why was I able to find a sweater I wanted this morning, when it had been on final sale?

    Are the stores slowly sending in their inventory? Or do we think that the listed inventory isn't comprehensive.

    Sorry--geek question. But I'm really curious!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I am curious too. I imagine they must process returns and inventory transfers from stores daily and maybe they do an inventory refresh every morning based on what's back? It's probably more involved than that.

      Delete
    2. I am glad I am not the only one who is curious! I woke up really early this morning--just after 4AM and couldn't get back to sleep. Around 5AM I realized that my body was just waiting to check JCrew, which I have been doing since December and which is just pathetic!

      I have one more thing I want--we'll see if I can manage. I was in such a panic to get the Heartbreaker sweater (having missed it twice before) that I didn't even bother trying to get free shipping.

      Then, later, I didn't manage to get a pair of sunglasses. Which is probably just as well......

      Delete
    3. It also updates because people return FS merch for defects, or gets CS to mark their accounts to return and JC puts the merch right back out there for sale. Watch out for used Kleenex in pockets!

      Delete
    4. Yes, watch our for used Kleenex and sometimes ca$h!

  39. I responded to Bizrate's request for clarification of my comments about inconsistent prices, incorrect product descriptions and update issues (specifically sold out items shown immediately after the morning update). They responded that my concerns would be forwarded to JCrew...guess we will see but I know that I am not the only customer who has complained lately.

  40. I told myself I wasn't going to place an order with this sale but then I saw that the code worked for the Wool Cafe Capri's in heather grey and decided to give the tall length a try. I have found that the regular length just look silly on me even though I am only 5'6". I also ordered the Tippi in neon azalea and the peter pan merino sweater in silver stripe at full price. Unfortunately both are on backorder til Feb 12.

    1. Nicole, you probably have a longer than average inseam. Good luck w/the talls :)

    2. I picked up the Wool Cafe Capri's as well in the regular length and I am 5'7". Where should these fall on my leg? Maybe I should have ordered the talls. TIA!

      Delete
    3. I'm 5'7", and I prefer the talls. The regulars look too short on me and give me that cankle look.

      Delete
    4. The regular cotton Cafe Capris are quite short on me. I have a short torso and long legs. When I sit, they are in the middle of my calf. I have the Cafe Capri in wool Herringbone in a regular length and even though they are listed on the JC site as having the same inseam as the cotton Cafe Capris, oddly the herringbone are longer on me. You never know if it's gonna be hit or miss with their clothes sometimes.

      Delete
    5. I am 5'4" but I cannot wear petite sizes (longer arms and legs, shorter torso). I have both the regular and tall length versions of the Cafe Capri. The regular hits me at the same spot it does on the model while the tall fit like regular slim leg pants; they hit at the ankle. I feel like the two different lengths offer completely different looks. The taller, more refined and sophisticated, the regular length, more modern and fun.

      Delete
    6. I am not sure which would be best.... I guess it's best just to keep the regular length. Thank you for your input!

  41. Can anyone comment on how this year's crop of wool Schoolboy jackets fit? Go with perfect shirt size, boy shirt size, etc? Think I might snag one next time they do an update if they're still around. TIA!

    Replies
    1. I got the navy last year and found it fit TTS. This year I ordered the wool flannel in heather caramel and found it was WAY too small. I ordered a size up but have yet to try it on. Very weird that the sizing would change like that based on wool vs. wool flannel. Hope that helps!

      Delete
    2. I bought the 2012 Schoolboy blazer in Modern Red, Festival Blue, and Purple, all in Size 0. My measurements are 33-27-36 and these fit well as long as you were wearing a thin shirt or shell underneath. If you were looking to layer a sweater, I would size up to a 2. HTH!

      Delete
    3. I don't know how they fit compared to last year's version but I took my usual size 0 in them and they were too small. I went with a size 2. I went with a size 0 in the Fall 2011 Hacking jacket and had to size up to a size 2 in the Fall 2012 version. It may just be that JC is leaning away from vanity sizing and more toward designer sizing.

      Delete
  42. Has anyone seen the Blythe Blouse in Brilliant Flame (red) in Size 2 in stores? Any tips are greatly appreciated!

    Also, do any JCAs have any knowledge on when J.Crew typically does suiting promotions? I'm hoping to get the 1035 jacket in super 120s in black.

    2. I definitely saw it on Saturday at the Michigan Ave store in Chicago.

      I honestly can't recall the last time J.Crew did a suiting specific promotion. They do mark down suit separates, though, without warning. And if they do a universal discount, it's a good time to get one. That's how I got my suit jacket about six months ago.

    3. I only remember seeing suiting promotions in the summer... I believe it was 30 percent.

      Delete
    4. Shopaholic - The last suiting promo I recall was in-store only and -- in typical J Crew fashion -- not advertised with signage. The SAs were willing to call in if different sizes were needed & request the promo be applied. I think PerfectFit is correct w/the time period & % off.

    Wool Plaid scarf in green/fuschia $34.99 less 50% off = $17.49
    Cashmere wrap in kelly green $79.99 less 50% = $39.99
    Bubble necklace in green $99.99 less 50% = $49.99

    I also saw a stack of the toothpick cord in ribbon bow print.

    HTH!

  48. Santa Barbara, CA store still had 50% off final sale today (prices below b4 discount). Saw black sequin polka dots tops ($89), fair isle leggings ($59), peacock necklace ($79), mint bubble necklace ($79), size 9 beige mcalister wedges w/ fur, long sleeve tweed dress sz 12 (i think it was $129), no2 circle eyelet skirts in yellow ($20), two small sizes navy mint diamond sweaters (don't remember price maybe $39?) , wool cafe capris in green, guava, jade ($29), jade & red jules dresses, sz 12 chiffon top in darker pink, pear sweaters, one sweater with the cat, dublin plaid skirt (one left on the mannequin). It's a small store but they had a decent selection considering. They had the scroll print dresses in sizes 0-8. Also a few pink & red excursion vests. Fair isle ski sweaters in xs and s I think. HTH!
    Kudos to the person (maybe a JCA) who scored the crystal encrusted earrings on Tues AM. I never stalk popbacks but that morning I did and was so bummed I missed those...been stalking FOREVER! I don't know what the color is called but I know it's not the green (as seen on Pink Peonies & Cupcakes & Cashmere). This pair has the opaque jade with turquoise & coral. If anyone has any leads on these in-store I will be so grateful.

  49. There are still good scores to find! I got the Circle Lace Top in Black, the Nightshirt in End-on-end Cotton, and the Bow Toothpick Cord for $54 today with the teacher discount. I love the nightshirt. The cut is slim and just right. Its too cold to wear alone right now but it will get a lot of wear in the spring and fall.
