Take an Additional 20% Off at J.Crew!

A big "thanks!" to decaf (in this post), via Wearing It Today, who shared the following promotion from J.Crew with us.

J.Crew is offering customers an additional 20% off (no min!) with promo code WIT20. This offer applies to regular, promotional, and sale priced merchandise. This offer expires August 13, 2013. The fine print includes:
Offer valid on purchases made online at jcrew.com from August 8, 2013, 12:01am ET through August 13, 2013, 11:59pm ET.  Offer not valid in J. Crew or J. Crew Factory stores, jcrewfactory.com, or on phone orders.  Offer cannot be applied to previous purchases or the purchase of gift cards and cannot be redeemed for cash or used in combination with any other offer.  Offer not valid on Ludlow suit styles and third-party branded merchandise.  To redeem, enter the code WIT20 in the promo code box at checkout.  Limit one promo code per order.  Terms of offer subject to change.
This is a pretty amazing deal! Definitely worth checking out J.Crew's website for new arrivals (and pop-backs in the sale section).

  2. That's good news. Thanks for sharing! It's so nice to be able to look at a wishlist and ponder my picks.

    You're invited to shop with the...

    * Irl Pic Guide - Regular Price
    * Irl Pic Guide - Sale - new cuts at the top

  3. Thank you for sharing the code decaf & Alexis! I just had my VPS place an order for a regular price item the other day, so I'm going to see if she will apply the 20% off so that I do not have to reorder it.

    Btw, lots of new Promo-priced items & markdowns this week. You can see the updated list HERE. :)

  4. I think I will use this promo or the bounce back card to finally pick up the beaded rose necklaces I've been pining for-- the white is on sale and it seems like the red is just about sold out and it's my last chance.

    Does anyone know if this or the bounce back card are stackable with a student discount? J.Crew seems very inconsistent with when they'll honor the student discount. I would love to come prepared with what to say if I am told I can't use it and I should be able to.

    Thanks!

    1. Hi Amanda Lee - It is my understanding that the student/teacher discount cannot be combined with a global promo such as 20% off everything, but that it could be combined with a more specific promo like the 30% knits/shorts one, or a % off final sale. At least, that's how I last remember it! Anybody else?

      Delete
    2. I posted this in the other thread too but my store said today that they would honor the student discount with the bounce back. The SA acknowledged there has been inconsistency but that for this promo it is stackable. HTH!

    3. Thank you both for your posts!

      Rcb.shops, would you mind sharing which store you shopped at? I went to the Columbus Circle NYC one today and they wouldn't stack it. Maybe I should try your store or customer service.

      Thanks!

    6. Has anyone seen the coral beaded rose necklace on markdown? According to my stores (Canada) and jcrew online they never went on md :(

      Delete
    7. Hi snowbrdgrl-- I don't believe it was ever got marked down because it sold so well. However, the white is on sale so you can take an additional 30% off it's sale price.

  5. I used the code to get the black wool schoolboy blazer. Even though it dropped my total below $175, at checkout they didn't charge me shipping. Makes me think free shipping might be included with this code??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think free shipping applies if the original total is above $175. I tried a mock check-out with an original total under $175, and shipping fees were applied.

  6. FFM and Gigi - any sense as to how the kikis fit relative to the Janeys? I am to-ing and fro-ing on on ordering the kiki leopard print calf hair flats - they are so classic and I love my other kikis so much...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not Gigi/FFM, but I have tried leather Kikis and patent Janeys and I take the same size in both (8). They are both really easy on the feet!

      Delete
    2. I also took the same size in the Kikis and the Janeys. LOVE my Kikis - I actually ordered a second pair after wearing them for a day.

      Delete
    3. Thanks Cate and Lauren! Lauren - which colours do you have? I am crazy about mine as well!

      Delete
    4. Hi WMM! I'm so glad that cate and Lauren were able to help you with sizing. I haven't tried on the Janeys or Kikis, but I do think the leopard kikis are so lovely! I hope you're able to get them! :)

      Delete
    5. FFM - I am debating if JC itself will have a better deal site wide than the 20% off sometime in the next week or two...I don't need boots this fall and I love those shoes. I am also looking at a pair of enzo angilionis which I have a picture of on my blog today. Of course the styles are so different, both could be justified!

      Delete
    6. WMM - I reviewed the mirrored Kikis, sz 7.5, in this post. I would go up to 8 in the mirrored Kikis even though they're leather lined and should stretch a little. I haven't tried on any of the regular leather Kikis. Will try to do so and report back.

      The Janeys definitely ran retail world TTS. The toe box runs wider than most J Crew shoes. I took a 7.5 in all varities of the Janey. HTH :)

      Delete
    7. WMM, I forgot to say that my feet are on the wider side and I think yours are narrow. I don't know if that will make a difference in how the Janeys would fit you, but I do take the same size in both styles. If anything, the Kikis might be slightly roomier on me.

      Delete
    8. WWM, I have the Kikis in moroccan red (which is the best shade of red - much better in person than online) and in black. I'd probably spring for the leopard if I didn't have a pair of the leopard Vivs already!

      Delete
    9. Lauren - we have the exact same shades! I hem and haw between the kikis and the vivs - I do think the vivs are a more striking shoe, style-wise, but love the heel of the kiki! Oh Gigi - I forgot your review of the mirror ones! Have you seen the mirror oxfords yet - I am not in love with them as well although my daughter tells me that I am drinking the crewlade on those! Cate - thanks of the width point - the kikis are a bit wide on me, but nothing like the noras, which I can walk right out of!

  7. Thank you so much! I finally found the board shorts in stripe in my size!!! Desperately need them for my upcoming vacation :)

    Also, I have been wishing for the PLAY Comme des Garçons® heart tee. It was always excluded from promotion, but this morning I tried with WIT20, it worked! I'm really excited :)

  8. So, they release new items, and a couple of days later, put these items on sale. What message are they sending? Don't pay full price, just wait a few days! What an idiot I am!

    I ordered of the new things and now they're on sale - and I won't even get my package for days! GRRRRRRRR.

    1. LilyBart - I would try for a price adjustment. I bet they'll give it to you.

      Delete
    2. The newer items are on promo, meaning they will jump back to full price in a week or so. Just talk to you local store or call the catalog.

  9. This is why JCA is my first internet stop of the day! I was waiting for a promo to tackle my wishlist, and while I'd prefer 30% off, 20% + my fall rewards card was enough of a nudge to get me to order a couple of things (Everly Studded Pumps, Pleated Chiffon Blouse in Gingham - Pinot Noir color).

  10. I really want the Boy Shirt in Beaded Chambray it is amazing in person however I have a funny feeling that in 2 or 3 weeks it will be on sale for a better price than a 20% off promo so I am holding off.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I'm going to wait for a cardholder promo - there's nothing that I must have right now, and like ashton I think prices may go lower than 20% in the future.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I agree with ashton and silver lining. JC always seems to ramp it up at the end of the month with some kind of great sale. I guess to make the month's quota?

      Delete
    2. Thanks to all of you. You are right 20% is nice but what I want is short sleeved and FP. It will go on sale and I should be able to get a better deal. I am going to swing by my B&M today since I have not been there in over a month just to look. Right now I am loving EBay, I just got a beautiful J Crew silk top for $13 from Spring/2010 NWOT.

  12. I really want the Sloane's in cap toe, not sure if I should wait until they go on sale. The leopard print Sloane's sold out rather quickly.

  13. Thank you for sharing this Alexis!!

    Btw, I just got the "bags and bunnies" email from JC -- adorable, but bizarre?

    1. Beaded rose necklace in white is on promo for $98 -- after the 20% off, $80 is likely to be as good a price as it will get...

      Delete
    2. Sorry for all these add-ons... the promo also works on 3rd party items like Barbour. I reviewed the girls' Barbour vest, which is very reasonably priced at $99 (before any promos), and the XL is like a XS women's, the XXL is like a S women's. A classic dark navy with a very very cute violet floral print lining.

  14. Yesssss. I have been wanting the Milo mary janes (but not at full price) and there were only three pair left in my size/color. I wasted no time in pulling the trigger.

    Like others, that's the reason why this blog is one of my first morning interwebs stops!

  15. And the games begins! I just bought a few things at the B&M at FP and they are on sale already! UGH...this is why I stay away. I guess a reorder and return is in my future.

    1. My store has tons of these on the sale rack (I didn't notice the price, but I wasn't interested in it at any price because I don't like to layer and the shirt needs a layer). The fit wasn't fabulous on me either.

  18. If anyone is trying to pay with their JC card they are experiencing issues and the cards are unable to go through. They are working on it but it's going to be a while. Oh joy. I hope the item I'm trying to buy with this promo is still available, if not I'm going to take it as a sign that maybe it will go down in price :)

    1. I had no problem using my card earlier today. (And, full confession, I just placed a second order a few minutes ago and had no problem).

    2. Mine finally worked after about an hour of trying, so hopefully they fixed the issue

  19. I pulled the trigger on the Dual Foulard Shirtdress, with the 20% off promo and my rewards card I got the dress for $100 off retail so I consider that a win and it's already starting to sell out in some sizes. I've been eyeing this dress since it came out, hoping it fits!

  20. The store manager quietly gave me a 20% off coupon and stacked it with the knits and tees promos. I bought my boys two dino tees at 1/2 off!

  21. Stopped in to return the Andie chino. Tried them on again this morning....um, when I sit down it's "I see Paris, I see France....."! They are obscenely low on me. So back they went. My SA asked what else I was looking for and I mentioned the quilted tack jacket. She said they just got it but wasn't supposed to put it out on the floor yet, but let me try it. I really like it! I was worried it would be too boxy. It is a straight boxy cut, but it doesn't make me look big and it's not too short. It's big enough through the sleeves to wear with a thicker sweater too. I liked it so much the manager gave me the go ahead to buy it early. I got the maple color with 20% off. For reference I'm 5"9' so it works if you're on the taller side.

  22. Thank you Alexis and decaf. There are a few sale items I want but they're all FS. I'm amazed how many items are FS. I'm not biting....been burned too many times on FS.

  23. I've been staring at the bunnies email. I was reminded of the random chicken in a recent catalog. I conclude that someone at a management level has bought a place in the country. I look forward to denim overalls with spike heels, sequined blouse and a fedora. Oh, yes, and a well-scrubbed baby piglet.

  27. I went to my b&m and got that adorable (in store only?) red/blue striped 3/4 sleeve t-shirt w/sewn in jeweled neckline. It was 30 off + the 20 off promo, so it was about $40. I think it's really cute and will get a lot of use. I like that it's t-shirt material (heavy t-shirt, not lightweight -shirt). I thought it ran a whole size small. I'm normally a S in JC tops lately, but the S in this top was very tight through the sleeves and a little clingy over the mid section. The Medium was a little loose, but that's the way the shirt should lay and it wasn't too loose overall - the sleeves were perfect. Very cute! Also, I could not resist the lace sweatshirt, which also came out to 50% off w/the stacking of the promo codes. I'd say it's TTS and adorable!

    1. I would just call Customer Service. Or go into a store and order like that. I've never tried stacking promos online. HTH.

    2. SDziemianzuk - The website only allows the use of one coupon at a time. So it's either SHOPNOW for 30% off knits/tees/shorts or WIT20 off sitewide.

      When I went to a store yesterday, two knit tops I bought rang up at 30% off, per the promo and I was able to apply a 20% bounceback card. Today I went to the same store and was told that the bounceback can't be used on a promo t-shirt. And *that's* the Crewniverse.

    3. I went into the store today and they didnt stack the 20% an top of the knits promo:(.
