"Thanks!" to Laura (in this post) who alerted us to a new feature on the homepage (click here). The new feature is called "today's Pick-Me-Up" which offers a "a special deal to make your day". The offer then leads to a pair of critter wedge flip flops for $6.50 (regular price $26.50).
I am not sure how long this feature will last, or if they will have rotating products, but I think this is an interesting concept. I look forward to seeing more items being offered! :)
What are your thoughts on the "today's Pick-Me-Up"? Do you think they will offer more items (per day)? How long do you think this will last? :)
I noticed that post, thanks for letting us all know!ReplyDelete
I checked out the flip flops and it's a great deal (they are THE MOST COMFORTABLE FLIP FLOPS I have), but I already have two pairs at home.
Looking forward to more deals!
They are copying Lands End, they have been offering this deal for awhile now.ReplyDelete
i think this is a great promo, i like the idea of a "special deal of the day" and how can you beat $6.50?? and i agree with SanFranciscoCA... i love Jcrew's flip flops. i own multiple pairs. so comfortable!!ReplyDelete
I loved this concept at first and would have totally purchased a pair, but didn't want to pay for all that extra shipping cost. It's a no-go for me, but hopefully new products will keep rotating... :)ReplyDelete
Great promo, I hope they change up the product offered often! (maybe some jewelry??)ReplyDelete
This is a great deal if you're already paying for shipping other items. Would definitely be nice to see a regular pick-me-up featured.ReplyDelete
If they offered free shipping with the pick-me-up, now that would be sweet! Talk about impulse buying!ReplyDelete
Come on people, this is still a great price/deal even if you have to pay shipping. Two pairs of flip flops for (about) $20 delivered? That sounds good to me!!ReplyDelete
I do hope it changes daily! I could a bargain on some tees or jewelry! :)
I have enought flip flops right now, but I would *love* for this to become a regular feature!!ReplyDelete
Yeah, I think if this becomes a "daily deal" sort of thing, they'll have some very happy customers! Definitely me included! :)ReplyDelete
Either they already took the offer down or I am blind because I just spent ten minutes squinting at the home page and examining every pixel on the screen and I did not see the link. Am I insane???ReplyDelete
I can't see it, either, so it's not just you!ReplyDelete
Can't find it either!ReplyDelete
It's down. I was hoping they were going to do a new item every 24 hrs...ReplyDelete
Boden has been doing this as well for the past 2-3 years. JCrew is copying them as well.ReplyDelete
The good thing about the Land's End and Boden daily promo is you CAN get FREE SHIPPING with those two companies so it is not to much to ask JC to do the same.
Reminds me of Garnet Hill's Sale of the Day. I'm glad that JCrew is slowly coming around...(between this and the red card - which I haven't rec'd! - it seems like they are doing right by their loyal customers)ReplyDelete
Pass on this deal for me...I am not going to pay JCrew's high shipping fees. It makes the deal not really a deal then!ReplyDelete
anon @9:20, free shipping would be great. Even with such a nice deal, the high shipping for one item talks me out of it. So then I think I should look around for some other stuff, see if I can make the shipping worth it. By the time I've done all of that, I've talked myself out of the whole thing and I've bought nothing. Like others have said, many stores out there do this, and with their low or free shipping a person is much more likely to hit that "complete order" button. REI also does this, and they have free ship to store so it is no risk to ever order from them. I wish JCrew offered such risk free shopping, but with their high shipping and final sales, alas, they do not.ReplyDelete
Dang it I missed it! I have been watching the flip flops in the sale section because I really need some new ones too. Drats! Thanks for letting us know though :)ReplyDelete
So what if it's like Boden, Lands End, or Garnet Hill's daily promo.ReplyDelete
Maybe J.CREW is trying to please you guys, making an effort in this tough time for everyone...though I don't know why- you complain about EVERYTHING!
This will be my last time reading this blog. Though I love what Alexis has done, it has only shown what selfish and demanding customers J.CREW has.
The deal of the day is as old as the blue light special. Who really invented it anyway? At least J.Crew gave it a try. It's gone now, but perhaps will return again with a new item. Or maybe it will be presented at the checkout like some other websites. I hate that annoying pitch and never impulse buy. But I can see it likely works for retailers. I mean, you've already paid for shipping the rest of your order, why not add a cheap ride-along...ReplyDelete
Hey, it's a good marketing ploy to reduce excess inventory or slow moving merchandise. I like the idea of having a deal pop up, rather than troll through FS, looking for a bargain.ReplyDelete
Thanks 4 the update:)ReplyDelete
I don't think people were complaining at all. Not one little bit. They were just stating they have seen this at other retailers before. CHILL! BIG TIME!
I thoroughly enjoy your blog Alexis.ReplyDelete
From the comment profile you created, "thoughts and opinions" are encouraged. It seems that is what goes on here. No one is forced to "attend".
anon 12:29: Go take something to calm your nerves, maybe the Internet is not the place for you since you cannot handle differences of opinion.ReplyDelete
Thanks I ordered 2! They arrived today but our front desk conceirage went home early...drat which means I can't try them on until tomorrow.ReplyDelete
