J.Crew is taking in the Columbus Day weekend by offering 25% off purchases made both online and in stores with promo code SHOPNOW. This offer ends tomorrow, October 14, 2013. The fine print includes:
*Offer valid on purchases made in J.Crew stores and at jcrew.com from October 13, 2013, 12:01am ET through October 14, 2013, 11:59pm ET. Offer not valid in the 769 Madison Avenue store, Liquor Store, Ludlow Shops, J.Crew Factory stores, at 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 wedding gowns, men's suiting, babies' merchandise, High Line branded merchandise, select Collection items and third-party branded merchandise. Online discount not valid on outerwear and men's footwear. In-store discount automatically applied at the register. To redeem online, enter code SHOPNOW in the promo code box at checkout. Limit one promo code per order. Offer valid in the U.S. and Canada only. Terms of offer are subject to change.This promotion is an interesting one considering what they are doing in-stores: As many of you have mentioned, including ShopWithM & Silver Lining (in this post), stores are offering the 25% off SHOPNOW promotion. However, they are no longer offering 40% off final sale- instead they are giving 20% off sale and allowing it to be stack-able with the 25% off.
This is an interesting workaround to not offer more of a discount on the final sale merchandise. But again, doesn't J.Crew want to move the sale stock in stores? I am not sure how all the B&M stores are doing, but the ones in my area have final sale stuff just lingering around. Granted there is new merchandise added to final sale, but still...
Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? Any items you are interested in? If so, please share!
