  1. I haven't shopped for all of august due to a pending move, and now it's not actually happening, 😂 I got rid Of SO much stuff. While it was all in stock I decided to try both camo pants and the funnelneck tops in tall. The back is long but it looks like the front is a bit short. I figured if the tall is too long I'll get the regular but tall usually sells out first. I really want the gold crackle ballet flats but won't order until they're back to a better percentage off sale, or maybe in store sale is 50% off.

    1. I refuse to touch sale until it isn't final sale anymore. I was going to buy more items yesterday, but only got the one that wasn't clearance, just discounted.

  2. Well, 30% off is available online now as well as in store.

    I think I'm going to actually pull the trigger on the Perfect shirt in Liberty Catesby floral. Reviews say it runs small, and I already have issues with button-downs from JCrew, so I might go up two sizes just to be sure.

    1. When I put the Liberty Catesby shirt in my cart, it says "EXCLUDED FROM PROMO". Did you have the same issue? Disappointed, as the vest and other items seem to be included. :(

    2. I did and that's so dumb. I'm thinking of emailing them and mentioning that I would have purchased something during this sale, but since it's excluded, I won't be.

  3. FWIW, in store cashback with ebates is 10% but you can only use master/visa/Amex I believe. Does anyone know what in store percentage off sale price is?

    4. I didn't know you could use ebates in store! I pretty much only shop online, but that's interesting!

    5. It's a fairly new thing. I also mostly shop online but sometimes will find a few things in store. I'll just remember to use my Amex if there's a good in store promo/rebate

  4. Love CS as usual. I ordered the 1984 rugby yesterday as the pink/navy was selling out. Today it's surprisingly included in the 30% off and CS gave me a price adjustment which I always appreciate. My order from yesterday already shipped last night which is also great.
    I think the 30% off full price items is a good promo and some newer items are included. I ordered some crewcuts items today with the new promo.

    1. Agree, it's a nice promo. I tried the collared tippi with it (I was able to stack a 20 percent coupon on top, too!) I only wish there was more I wanted to buy :( -lep33shops

    2. I really like the collared tippi! That's so great that you were able to use two promos, makes it such a good price.

  5. If there is a day with free shipping I will probably order the Ruffled Utility dress. I know this runs small and it isn't working for some but I tried it on in the larger of my two dress sizes and liked the fit and thought it was cute and not too constricting. Other than that not tempted. Received my Factory order of new arrivals and will post in the reviews thread when I have a chance later today. Keeping all but one item!

  6. Why do you guys think Ratti graphic diamond print skirt went on sale so fast? It's silk, the print is nice (it looks like 3 season print to me), 1 singe review is positive and it just came out 2 weeks ago. I was going to get it this weekend at the store but now suspect something is off with it, like with pretty much everything I bought online this year.

    1. I have this item on my wishlist as well. It is not on sale yet just promo priced (price ends in .00 not .99) along with several other items released at the same time. The skirt will more than likely return to full price in a few days time. I think the brand new signet bag was promo priced and eligible for the additional % off for one day only last week and went back to full price the next day. I understand your worries as I have been disappointed with many things this year as well.

    2. Hi Natalya, if I'm looking at the correct one it is on "promo" which means it qualifies for the extra % off but will go back to full price soon. If the price ended in .99 then it's sale/marked down. Since it ends in .50 it's just a promo and will go back to full price.
      Sorry if you already knew that. :) if you're interested I'd buy it now to try it because when it does get marked down for good then it will be final sale most likely.

    3. ^Sorry, as Jessf said a promo price can also end in .00.

    4. Thanks for the info. I thought since it's in sale section it's on sale now. Didn't realize it can be pulled off the sale section in a day or so.

  7. Guess what? J.Crew now does e-Gift Cards! I called for a price adjustment on an order I placed within the past week. Because I paid for the order with a Rewards card and a gift card, my PA was in the form of a gift card. But unlike the past where I had to wait for up to 2 weeks for my orange card to arrive in the mail, JC sent me a card number and pin via e-mail the same day. I was able to use on another order right away - pretty convenient!
