I like to start by stating that I am very thankful for the educator and student discounts at J.Crew. It is a great incentive to shop with our favorite retailer.
I know the application (and explanation) of the student/ educator discount has varied over the years. The recent being that promotional items (for example, a category like tees on sale for 20% off) are not eligible, but universal promotions (for example, an additional 30% off sale) are eligible. Of course, full priced merchandise are eligible for the discount as well.
"Thanks!" to ruffles (in this post), who shared the following news about J.Crew's student/ educator discount:
...I was told yesterday ... at the Northbrook IL store that JC will no longer stack the educator discount with any other % off in store..."Thanks!" to E P (in this post), who shared last Thursday the following:
...did find out today that b&m stores will no longer apply the educator/ student discount on sale items, only full-priced. Apparently, this was a company wide decision announced yesterday....It seems that maybe (?) J.Crew is changing the parameters of the student/ educator discount again. Not sure if this is the new company-wide policy that will take effect in all stores or perhaps rolling out slowly in some stores first or what.
If you have shopped recently (in the past week) at a J.Crew store, please let us know if you were able to apply your student/ educator discount.
Did you know about this change? What are your thoughts on this latest change? Will this have an impact on your future purchases?
