J.Crew Sweater Sale: 20% Off for Men, Women, & Crewcuts!

"Thanks!" to many of you, including JSR (in this post), who shared the latest promotion from J.Crew with us.

J.Crew is offering 20% off select full-priced Sweaters for Women (click here to shop online) and Men (click here to shop online), as well as Crewcuts. This offer ends Tuesday, March 19, 2013. The fine print includes:
*Discount valid on the purchase of full-price sweaters in J.Crew stores and at jcrew.com from March 16, 2013, 12:01am ET through March 19, 2013, 11:59pm ET only. Online prices are as marked. Offer not valid in J.Crew Factory stores or at jcrewfactory.com. Offer cannot be applied to previous purchases and cannot be redeemed for cash or used in combination with any other offer. Offer not valid on third-party branded merchandise. Discount on in-store purchases will be automatically applied at the register. Offer valid in the U.S. and Canada only. Terms of offer are subject to change.
It is nice to see this offer being extending to both online and in-stores. My top pick still is the Crystal Necklace Sweater (item 86132; $148) now on sale for $118. I already love the color combination of rugby stripes in navy and emerald green. The crystal built-in necklace is a beautiful bonus!

In addition to the sweater sale, there are some other noteworthy in-store promotions at J.Crew:
  • 20% Off Women Tees & Tops {"Thanks!" to PeasAndCarrots & kitchy7 (in this post)}
  • 20% Off Cece Ballet Flats {"Thanks!" to kitchy7 (in this post)}
  • 30% Off Sale {"Thanks!" to ruffles & kitchy7 (in this post)}
It seems that the terms for the educator / student discount has been changed once again. As mentioned earlier in the month (refer to the "J.Crew's Student & Educator Discount {downgrade?}" post), it looked like the discount could no longer be applied to merchandise with any other additional percent off (like 30% off sale). According to many of your recent experiences, including Knit Yarns & ruffles (in this post), J.Crew will once again stack the discount on top of an additional percent off. Yey!

Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? Are there any Sweaters you are interested in getting? Is your local store offering additional promotions? Were you able to apply your student & educator discount in addition to a percent off? If so, please share!

J.Crew's Student & Educator Discount {downgrade?}

I like to start by stating that I am very thankful for the educator and student discounts at J.Crew. It is a great incentive to shop with our favorite retailer. 

I know the application (and explanation) of the student/ educator discount has varied over the years. The recent being that promotional items (for example, a category like tees on sale for 20% off) are not eligible, but universal promotions (for example, an additional 30% off sale) are eligible. Of course, full priced merchandise are eligible for the discount as well.

"Thanks!" to ruffles (in this post), who shared the following news about J.Crew's student/ educator discount:
...I was told yesterday ... at the Northbrook IL store that JC will no longer stack the educator discount with any other % off in store...
"Thanks!" to E P (in this post), who shared last Thursday the following:
...did find out today that b&m stores will no longer apply the educator/ student discount on sale items, only full-priced. Apparently, this was a company wide decision announced yesterday....
It seems that maybe (?) J.Crew is changing the parameters of the student/ educator discount again. Not sure if this is the new company-wide policy that will take effect in all stores or perhaps rolling out slowly in some stores first or what.

If you have shopped recently (in the past week) at a J.Crew store, please let us know if you were able to apply your student/ educator discount.

Did you know about this change?
What are your thoughts on this latest change? Will this have an impact on your future purchases?

J.Crew's Student & Educator Discount {upgrade}

A big "thanks!" to MJ who shared the following {great} news about J.Crew's student/ educator discount:
Today I visited my local J Crew in Las Vegas and the sales lady mentioned the teacher discount policy has been revised and the 15% discount can now be applied to sale items! They will not combine promotions, so it will not apply when they offer an additional 30% off. Great news!
I am very thankful for the educator and student discounts at J.Crew– and was a bit sad to see it get reduced over the past few years. (It use to be allowed on online & phone orders, in addition to in store purchases. It was also not limited to full priced items, as it included sale priced items as well as items receiving an additional percent off.)

This is wonderful news! Hopefully this news is being spread by store associates in all brick & mortar locations. :)

What are your thoughts on this latest change? Did you know about this change? Will this have an impact on your future purchases?

J.Crew Email: We love college students & teachers...

"Thanks!" to many of you who shared the following email from J.Crew this morning which reminds us about J.Crew's 15% discount for both students and teachers.

This discount use to apply to sale items, third party items, as well as online purchases at retail and factory stores. However, J.Crew has scaled it back considerably in the past year: (1) applies only to in-store purchases, (2) applies only to regular priced items, (3) can't be used with any other promotion, and (4) not applicable to third-party merchandise.

Even if your personal shoppers knows you are an educator/ student and applied it to online/ phone orders in the past, they will now tell you they can't apply it unless you are in a store for an associate to verify it. This is a hassle, but I am happy that they still offer it at all. :)

Did you receive this email? Were you aware of the changes in the discount's applicability?

News About J.Crew's Student & Educator Discount

A big "thanks!" to Debby (in this post) who shared the following news about J.Crew's student/ educator discount:
I was just told over the phone that as of Sept. 12 they will no longer apply the student/teacher discount over the phone so it will be in store only. Bummer!!
This is disappointing. :( I hate to see benefits and perks keep getting reduced. With that said, I am still very thankful for the educator and student discounts at J.Crew– and I hope they do not remove it altogether.

What are your thoughts on this latest change? Did you know about this change? Will this have an impact on your future orders?

Educator Appreciation Event {J.Crew Factory Store in Jeffersonville, OH}

A super big "thanks!" to Nichi who let us know about another wonderful offer from J.Crew Factory.

The J.Crew Factory Store in Jeffersonville (Ohio) is celebrating their local educators. Not only are they reminding customers that educators enjoy 15% off their purchases through the Teacher/Educator Discount, but they are also holding a *private* shopping event. The event will be held on 6/13/10 from 6-8PM.

So what does the event entail? Nichi shares with us that the "latest summer collection is in and will be out for the event" and that "the benefit to attending the event is the personalized service you will receive since the store will be open after hours for teachers only". Moreover, they "will have several sales associates available to help with any outfitting needs, as well as refreshments for your enjoyment!" Lastly, "substitute certificate will be sufficient as educator identification". Sounds like fun! :)

You do need to RSVP by Friday, 6/11/10. Simply send an email (store071 at jcrew dot com) or call (740-948-2101) the store.

The location for the Factory store is the following:
J. Crew at 8765 Factory Shops Blvd
Jeffersonville, OH 43128
(740) 948-2101

Happy Factory Shopping to all those in the area!!! :)

J.Crew Email: J.Crew loves college students...

A big "thanks!" to Heather:D & Marissa who shared with us one of J.Crew's latest emails.

J.Crew is reminding us about their student and teacher (aka: educator) discount of 15% off. They are also very clear in the email that this discount is only for (1) full-price merchandise, and... (2) purchases made at their brick & mortar (B&M) stores.

As mentioned in a previous post (refer to the May 1st post: "News About J.Crew's Student and Educator Discount {what's the deal?}"), J.Crew recently changed the discount so it would apply only to full-priced items. (Before it could be applied to any item, regardless of promotion.)

However, I was not aware that this discount is limited to in-store only use. I was under the impression it could be used for online and phone orders too, as long as it's a full priced item. {sigh} Maybe that is still the case, and the email forgot to mention that the discount can be applied for online & phone orders. {fingers crossed!}

Did you receive this email? Were you aware of the recent changes in the discount's applicability? Have you been able to use the discount for your recent online and/or phone orders? If so, please share! :)

J.Crew's Red Phone Changes {downgrade}

A big "thanks!" to Sydneygirl (in this post) who shared the following news about J.Crew's red phone:

"...they will no longer allow you to have both free shipping from the red phone on full price items AND your teacher/student discount. You can only have one or the other. The red phone used to be their big thing they promoted vs other stores. Now they are taking away their discounts all over the place. I was told this was a new policy."

This is sad J.Crew-related news. It seems as though the benefits and perks keep getting reduced. With that said, I am still very thankful for the teacher/educator and student discounts at J.Crew- and I hope they do not remove it altogether. Especially since the retail industry is still hurting (just look at retailers like Eddie Bauer, who recently filed for bankruptcy protection).

What are your thoughts on this latest change? Did you know about this change? Will this have an impact on your future orders?

News About J.Crew's Student and Educator Discount {what's the deal?}

A big "thanks!" to many of you in the "Seek & Find: Will you visit J.Crew this Weekend?" post, who brought to our attention some changes to the Student and Educator Discount that J.Crew offers.

Debby let us know the following: "I was in a JCrew store last night and was not allowed to use my student discount on sale items. The store manager showed me the memo saying that effective 4/30, the student and teacher discount is only good on full price items." Anon at 9:52 AM also mentioned that "...I was checking out last night at Tysons with my red card, so I did not mention the student dicount, but the person checking out beside me was denied for the student discount on their sale purchases...I was shocked!"

However, Anon at 10:35 AM mentioned that she "...called CS at 1-800 and they told me the terms of the student/teacher discount have NOT changed, ie, it can be used for sale items". Moreover, Anon at 11:00 AM found that she "... was just able to place an order over the phone stacking the 20%-off promo and the 15% student/educator discount. Maybe the new policy only applied to in-store items?"

So this all seems a bit confusing, right? ;) Anon at 12:02 PM shares some information on the situation by stating the following: "I think the restriction on the 15% student promo applies only to certain stores, probably ones that are located in large university towns. My B&M is in new haven CT and a month ago I was given the same memo about the discount only being good on full-priced items. when I'd asked to speak to the manager, I told her I'd been able to place an order online and at other jcrew stores using the discount, she said the promotion applied only to that specific store, that the decision had come from corporate, and that other jcrew stores as well as online orders would still honor the 15% discount...needless to say I've been in j crew MUCH less these days, though it's hard since my dorm is literally right across the street and I can always see the new displays".

Since getting J.Crew's 25% off Red Card, I haven't used my educator discount (and therefore didn't notice whether changes have been made or not). However, I will now pay close attention to see if the discount will be applied to regular and sale priced items. :)

If you are visiting your local J.Crew store this weekend & using your student/ educator discount, do you mind sharing that information (i.e. location of store) with us? It would be great to have a list of stores accepting and not accepting the discount (which may help us determine which stores to visit). :)

Clarification on J.Crew Teacher & Student Discount :)

"Thanks!" to Anonymous in Illinois:) who shared with us the following response from J.Crew after she recently emailed them about the application of the teacher discount:

We apologize for the confusion regarding the application of the teacher discount to your order #

Your order is eligible for the discount, and it will be applied. Please note this credit will not be reflected on your packing slip or in your initial charge. It will be applied as a separate transaction to your Credit Card once your order ships from our warehouse.


We would like to take this opportunity to give you the eligibility requirements of combining the teacher discount with other promotions.


If the promotion already on the order is good for everything on jcrew.com, i.e. a global promotion, the teacher discount is not eligible to be used on the same order.

For promotions on specific groups of merchandise, such as the current EXTRA20; which applies only to Final Sale items, both promotions may be combined. We hope this will make determining the eligibility of future orders a bit simpler.


Again, we apologize that you were given the incorrect answer regarding the combination of promotions in our earlier email.


If we can be of further assistance, please let me know by responding directly to this email or through my contact information which I have provided below.


Best


I honestly did not know when the discount could and could not be applied- so this email does help clarify that issue. I also want to add that I really *appreciate* that J.Crew (and other retailers) offer a discount for teachers and students considering that they don't have to- it is nice of them. :)

Were you aware of the requirements for the teacher and student discounts? Have you heard or experienced something differently? If so, please share with us your experiences with the teacher and student discount. (P.S. If there are any J.Crew associates reading this, we would love to hear your perspective on this topic!) :)

J.Crew Policies: What Are They? ;)

This weekend, I went to several J.Crew stores in the area to take advantage of the additional 50% off final sales. I ended the weekend feeling disappointed with my J.Crew shopping experiences (which normally are wonderful for me). Without going into too much detail, I essentially felt like some policies were changed and not clearly expressed to customers (and even to associates)- leaving me frustrated and less inclined to shop.

Therefore, I thought it might be worthwhile to share the following tidbits (which other members of the blog have shared before as well) to make the shopping experience a bit easier. :)

First, if you are at a brick and mortar (B&M) store and an item the store carries is on sale, but is priced higher than the same exact item online, the store WILL price match the online sale price. Moreover, the store's "additional percent off" can be applied to the item with the online matched price. For example: a blouse is for sale at your local store for $60, but J.Crew online is selling the same blouse for $30. In this case, the store can match the online price. Also, if the local store is offering an additional 50% off while J.Crew online is offering an additional 30% off, you should be able to receive the 50% off the $30 blouse since you are physically purchasing the item in the store.

Second, if you are using the red phone to order a sale item that the store does not carry (either the store does not carry the item at all, not in your size or not in your color), then you are NOT able to apply the in-store "additional percent off" to the red phone order. However, if there is an "additional percent off" promotion currently running online, then the red phone associates can apply the online "additional percent off" on your order.

Lastly, several J.Crew stores are discontinuing the application of the student/educator discount in addition to the "additional percent off" sale even though (1) those same stores use to allow both the discount and sale to be applied and (2) there are other stores in neighboring towns that still allow both the discount and sale to be applied. The main reason cited is that the "additional percent off" cannot be combined with any other offers. However, I do not know if the educator discount is considered an ongoing "offer" or a policy. (Unfortunately, it's not clearly defined online, as shown in the image.)

Did I get those policies correct? If not, please feel free to clarify any points made. :) What are some recent policies that you learned about? Have you experienced any policy changes?

J.Crew's Teacher & Student Discount

"Thanks!" to Julie who shared with us the following email response from J.Crew about the teacher's (and student's) discount:
We were able to review the current way promotions are supposed to be applied, since you have received correspondence from us containing conflicting information. We are able to provide the following information:

Promotional coupons are not combinable with any other discount. If, however, the coupon discount already on your order amounted to less than 15%, we would be happy to apply an adjustment of the difference to raise the overall savings to the 15% level you expect as a student/teacher. If a currently used promotion amounts to a value greater than that which you would receive using your 15% discount, it is to your advantage to keep the current promotion rather than replace it with the 15% standing discount.


We sincerely apologize that this information conflicts with recent information sent to you. We appreciate your business and certainly understand your concerns with not being able to combine coupons and have noted this as we appreciate your feedback and it is possible in the future that this could change.


If we can be of further assistance, please let us know by responding to this email at contactus@jcrew.com or calling a J.Crew Associate at 1-800-562-0258.
I truly appreciate J.Crew (and other retailers) offering a discount for teachers and students (it really is nice of them). Hopefully J.Crew policies will become a bit more uniform throughout their stores and online. :)

J.Crew Student Discount: Upgrade & Downgrade

A big "thanks!" to Blumre, who let us know about another email from J.Crew that reminds students about getting 15% off in-stores. (Again, I did not get this email. So I really appreciate Blumre letting us know about this.)

Upgrade
: that students are receiving 15% off instead of 10%.

Downgrade: the fine print (which is shown below) that indicates there is a change in policy.
Apparently the student and teacher's discount won't be honored over the phone or online any more. It also sounds like they cannot be applied with any other offer or promotions in-stores either. :( I have to be honest- this upsets me a bit. I have always been able to purchase more (and I mean much more) when I am able to justify buying items on sale with an additional percent off AND my educator's discount.

Update: A big "thanks!" to Anon at 10:55 PM, who is a J.Crew employee, that let us know the following great news:

Hello aficionadas! I work at the J.Crew call center and PLEASE PLEASE know, we DO still honor the 15% discount. What is required to have this discount added is either a) your student email address or b) your email address from the school you teach. You can also email this information to contactus@jcrew.com and have your discount applied after your order has been placed. Please know the full price of the order will be authorized to your card, and then after your order has been shipped, the 15% discount will then be deducted and issued as a credit to your card/ gift card. If you do not have an email address from the school, faxing us your ID will suffice. I really hope that this helps you all out. We here at J.Crew LOVE your blog. Please also know, it is not just used to fix any bugs in our systems. It is also used to see what our customers are saying about us, and for us to learn how we may improve on our customer service. This blog is very well written, and a wonderful way to read. Thank you all so much for your loyal dedication to the J.Crew brand! Happy Shopping!

I am very happy to hear from this J.Crew Employee (which "thank you so much!" for letting us know too.) :)

What do you think of the fine print of this email? What do you think it means (maybe I am interpreting this wrong)? Do you think the policy has changed for the worse or for the better?

Educator & Student Discount: Shopper's Tip

Anonymous at 9:13 PM shared with us a great tip in the "J.Crew Comments on Current Situation" post. J.Crew offers an educator's discount (of 15%) and a student discount (of 10%) on any order. I thought that this was only possible at their brick & mortar stores (either at the counter or using the red phone) because an associate had to verify your status and check the school ID. Well, Anonymous at 9:13 PM let us know that it applies to orders over the phone from home (or the office, car, anywhere besides the J.Crew red phone). All you have to do is tell them that you are an educator or a student, then provide them with your email address (that will act as a verification of your status).

There have been a few other members of the blog who said that they have been able to do this as well. There have also been others who said that this was not true.

Well, when I called J.Crew about my order from last Friday, I thought to ask the customer service representative if I could indeed, apply my educator's discount over the phone from home- and she confirmed that this was true!!!

You can apply the discounts for online orders too! Just call after the recent online purchase to confirm the discount (and school email address) with the customer service rep. Moreover, Mad about madras let us know (in this post) that you can also send an e-mail (from the school email address) with the online order number for J.Crew to apply the discount.

Are you excited that you can apply the discount from calling in anywhere ? Are you thinking about all those orders you made in the past few weeks, that you could have applied the discounts to. [I know I am! :) But I am really just happy to know that we are able to use the discounts over the phone from anywhere!!!] Thanks again Anonymous at 9:13 PM!

Tips on having a great J.Crew shopping day!

I have come across, through my many years of purchasing at J.Crew, that there are a few tips that all J.Crew (devoted) shoppers should know about!
  1. First and foremost: J.Crew's customer service is one of the best in the business. So never hesitate to give them a call (800-562-0258) about any issues you might be having. (I have their phone number stored on my cell-phone for easy dialing access!)

  2. If you are a student, show your student ID and J.Crew will give you a student discount of 15% in their stores. That discount applies to just regular items. (It use to apply to sale items too, but those days are over.)

  3. If you are a teacher, show them some form of proof and J.Crew will give you an educator's discount of 15%! (I just found out about this juicy tidbit this weekend!)

  4. Don't hesitate to return "final sales" items if the merchandise is defective. I ordered the beautiful Jeweled-buckle grosgrain belt in black (Item No. 90865) to find one of the jeweled pieces missing and the other one completely off. I called J.Crew immediately and they mailed me a new one.

  5. There is a red-phone in all stores that allows customers to place store & catalog orders for regular priced items. This is especially great for items not available in the stores since J.Crew provides free shipping. Alas, the free shipping offer via red phone offer does not apply to sale merchandise. (Again, I know this for sure because I tried). HOWEVER, your student and educators discounts do apply over the red phone (so do not forget to mention them when placing an order!)

  6. If you are looking for a regular priced item and it's out of stock online, call J.Crew and ask to perform a "store search". Essentially, J.Crew associates will check the stock of that item in all of their stores. When they find the product you want (both size & color), they will mail it to you. Sadly, this service is not applicable to sales items. (They use to offer it for sale items and it was great too! But J.Crew probably recognized it wasn't cost effective for them.)

  7. UPDATE: I completely forgot to include something about "waitlisted" items. If you are waitlisted for a particular item and that item goes on sale for a lesser amount (this includes the item being a part of the 20-30% off temporary sale section), make sure you call J.Crew for a price adjustment. They will always honor the lowest price before the item is shipped out. Unfortunately, they don't update the lowest price automatically- so you do have to keep track of prices. (I have called about price adjustments numerous times in the past and J.Crew has always been accommodating. It has saved me a bunch of money that I used towards other purchases too!)

  8. If you "sign up" your email for new arrivals and promotions (through the website,) J.Crew will email you a welcome offer that usually consists of a free shipping code. (Gotta love that!)
What are some of your "tips" for J.Crew shoppers? I would love to hear what you have found with your experiences with the store.
