"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?
