Although I am happy to see there is a full priced promotion going on, I am thoroughly dissappointed to see the additional percent off sale is gone. With over 2000+ for women (and a ton of random pop-backs), the best way to move that merchandise is with an additional percent off. I can already guess what the promotion on March 6th will look like! ;)

Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? Any items you are excited to get? Please share!


  1. I just don't understand why the prices in the sale section aren't on promo or cut, along with FREE SHIP for sale items! Who wants to pay $5 shipping on a $20 shirt?

  2. I agree...and this promo is until thursday. Why....just why do online shoppers miss out on the 40% (assuming it is still on instore) Maybe this is why J Crew did so poorly in the womens dept. we are not that dumb. I would appreciate fair reasonable pricing.
    The fact that we NEED a promo consistently on....shows J Crew is off the mark on what its core customers expect. Just my opinion.

  3. I was going to order a few things this morning, because there was a nice sale update, but the % off didn't apply to anything in my cart and if I took something out to cut costs because of that then I was paying for shipping. Another day maybe...
