Take Extra 30% Off Sale at J.Crew!

"Thanks!" to many of you, including GigiOfCa (in this post), who let us know about the following promotion this morning.

J.Crew is offering customers to take an extra 30% off all Fall Sale items with promo code FALLSALE. The offer expires October 20, 2013. The fine print includes:
*Offer valid on the purchase of sale items in J.Crew stores and at jcrew.com from October 15, 2013, 12:01am ET through October 20, 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. In-store discount automatically applied at the register. To redeem online, enter code FALLSALE 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.  
The good: (1) Happy to see another additional percent off sale at J.Crew (both online and in stores). (2) It looks like some new merchandise made it to sale. Yey!

The bad: (1) J.Crew offered 40% off sale not less than a week ago. Why the decrease to 30%? Especially since many items show up as Final Sale. (2) Most of the merchandise is the same old merchandise. If you wanted an item you would have already bought it by now. Frankly, I am so tired of the section that I rarely check for updates in the morning.

What are your thoughts on this promotion? Are you excited or tired by the Sale section? Share your thoughts! :)

  2. Yay for Fall Sale! So glad to see that Final Sale finally appears to be gone again for now. Some items are still showing up as final sale, but hopefully they'll have that fixed in the next day or two. There are also quite a few new promo-priced items and markdowns this morning. I'm working on updating the promo item & markdowns list right now. I'll have it posted on my blog later this morning. :)

  3. There's also a special 50% off category. I got the Beanstalk shorts for a good price.

  4. I'm suffering from promo fatigue (but my wallet isn't!)... don't get me wrong, I love a good promo as much as the next JCA but between the InStyle promo, 40% FS, then 25% (then 20% + 25%), and now 30%, it's just gotten to be too much work to shop JC this month. I'm going to lay low until Holiday rolls out...looking forward to tartan, thermals, and chunky sweaters. Here's hopin'!

    1. Me too. It's not that I mind the promos, but I don't need or want anything at the moment and I am looking forward to their Holiday rollout.

  5. Some items are showing up 50% off with the code.

  6. Like FFM, I'm so happy to see Fall Sale instead of Final! The extra 50% off items aren't even showing as final. It's hard to do 30 when we just had 40% off, but there are some new markdowns and promos, like the Macalisters (have been waiting patiently on the gray!) and the the floral garland bracelet (so pretty).

  7. I'm angry that some items are excluded. I've been wanting the Long Colorblock Field Jacket (02745) for a while, and it finally went on sale. But it's excluded from the promo. It would have been cheaper to get it for 25% off full price.

    1. I know! I was soooo excited to see the green majesty peacoat marked down (even a mere $10).

      Delete
    2. Urgh, I am so upset also! I don't know why they want to exclude anything from the additional promo sale, I mean what's the point to mark down $10? The Sabrina coat in the Celery color is also excluded from the sales promo. It def would have been cheaper to just get it for the 25% off.

    3. There were tons of the color block field jacket in all sizes at the 5th ave store in NYC. Came to 90$ after the promos and sale. Very happy with it :)

  8. Does anyone know if you need to size up half size on the studded everly? thx.

    ReplyDelete
  9. ShopLV - I generally wear a size 8 in J Crew shoes, a size 7.5 from other retailers. The 8 in the studded everly was fine. HTH!

  10. I check the sale section maybe once a week. Since I took advantage of the 25% promo last week, nothing for me right now.

    Some Factory reviews here.

  11. I'm burnt out from all of the sales too. I might get the flare mini on sale if it's still there in my size by the end of the sale, but I doubt it. I too am looking forward to the Holiday roll-out.

  12. The list of new Promo-Price items & Markdowns is posted here on my blog. There are a lot of them today, too (especially new markdowns). :)

  13. Still 40% off in store. Saw lots of the colorblock field jackets at the old orchard, Skokie, il store.

    1. Still 40% off sale in store? Great! Do you know if it is still FINAL SALE?

      Delete
    2. Yes re off sale. Not sure about final - didn't buy anything. Signage didn't say final but that doesn't always seem to matter!

      Delete
    3. Just wanted to say hey, neighbor! Old Orchard is my closest J.Crew.

    2. ooh thanks for this! although i think i'm all JC-ed out, nothing there is really enticing me...

  15. my B&M has the long colorblocked field jacket (item 02745) marked down to $149.99 and an additional 40% off (final sale). i was able to use my student discount, and scored the jacket for $76.49! so if you've been waiting it to go on sale, now is the time :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. i think what i like about this sale is that it's not final sale. there are a ton of sale items in my wishlist that i have been waiting for a stackable discount but never wanted to pull the trigger because i wouldn't be able to return them.

  17. Are the leather pocket sweaters or beaded chambray shirts marked down in stores??

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. ObsessedWShopping - Beaded chambray marked $89.99 in-store. Leather still reg price as of last k. New markdowns might happen today or tomorrow in-store.

      Other notes in the In-Store Price Guide.

    2. I keep thinking today is Wed. New in-store markdowns are usually Wed or Thu.

  18. Today is the last day for the INSTYLE25 promo good on your total purchase.

  19. Does anyone know if stores will do a charge send on sale items? TIA!

    1. R-most will, and will usually charge you $8.95 to ship. Good luck!

  20. Just visited my local B&M tonight and the 40% off sale was still going on (all purchases final):

    Merino Tippi in Houndstooth (both navy and green verisons) - $69.99
    Contrast Knit Blazer - $129.99
    Long Colorblock Field Jacket - $149.99

    I think 40% off these prices (and if you're lucky, with an additional 20% off student/educator discount like cpo) is a pretty good deal for these.

  21. I feel like you have to be very good at math to shop at JCrew this Fall and not to get an headache (should I have bought that last week with 40% off online or with 25% + 20% in store or 30% off now but not fs online or 40% off in store but fs?) BUT the calf hair Lillian popped back in my size this morning and that was a no brainer ;-). Hope they ship though!

    1. Thanks so much for posting that, Ina. Not seeing anything I have to have, except maybe that burgundy/pink tipped blazer. Impractical, but pretty. I also like the blouse under it, but wondering what it is made of.

      Delete
    2. It is made out of cotton.
      It's called the ratti geo print popover,priced at $98.
      HTH

    3. JcrewJD,i gave you the wrong info.
      I think what you meant is the Cate cami in iced lilac paisley for $118.
      HTH

    4. Not to enable you JCrewJD, but I just saw the rose/burgundy-tipped blazer in store today and it's stunning.

  25. New markdowns in store--I'm sorry I didn't check prices. Geometric floral necklace, crystal chevon-link necklace, blue abstract dot dress, pleated silk top in abstract dot 99.99 in store. 40% off sale still going on! HTH!

  26. A round of sale reviews here, incl the Tippi in warm cocoa (in-store), collection cashmere button-back sweater, Liberty in strawberry thief & merino boyfriend sweater in neon coral.

  27. I'm not buying anything right now because I just got back from New York where I dropped "mad coin" -- not at J Crew, however. I did visit a couple of J Crews there, including the one in Soho (99 Prince St) and the one in the Flatiron District (91 5th Ave.)

    I wore the Contrast-trim tunic that I got on a recent promo and I love it more than I expected. Underneath, I wore a muji tank top, since it's a bit see-through. I highly recommend this top and would recommend choosing the smaller of the two sizes you would wear, e.g. get the 8 if you can wear the 8 or 10. It's very loose-fitting. It's a bargain right now at $28 after the 30% off.

  28. I'm glad this latest sale is for O/S customers too! I've ordered a navy jackie cardigan. I wear these all summer, so they're a great buy.
    A bit OT, but I do love J Crew customer service. I ordered the Jackie cardigan at the weekend at full price, then the 30% off with free shipping became available. I emailed J Crew to see if they'd give me a price adjustment and they did!!
    Great service.

  29. How long have the no. 2 pencil skirt in double-serge wool been on sale for $98.00? This is the main reason I am thinking about making a purchase now (including the scallop-trim mini, stripe ponte dress, and swingy tee to reach free shipping) but if the pencil skirt will be on sale for awhile I might wait and see if 40% off comes back. ;-P

  30. Lots of new markdowns online this morning including the Collection jeweled cable cardigan, Liberty popover in Meg's garden floral, and Schoolboy blazer in chalk stripe to name just a few. There are several new promo-priced items, too. I'm working on the updated list of the new items, and will have it posted on my blog later this morning. :)
