J.Crew Factory: Early Access {30% Off & Free Shipping}

"Thanks!" to many of you, who shared the following news/email from J.Crew Factory with us.

J.Crew Factory is once again offering a sneak peek at the latest arrivals with prices up to 30% off! They are also throwing in free shipping (no min!). Both these offers are just for today! So check your email to see if you got the invite.

While on this topic of J.Crew Factory, I noticed a few things:
  1. Some of the new arrivals already made it to the regular website. Whoops! I noticed the Factory Intarsia Charley Sweater in Lobster (item 48693), as well as the Factory Printed Tissue Scarf (item 17552), this morning prior to receiving the email. Not a big deal. Thought it was interesting.
  2. There are a few things I would like to get. But should I buy now or wait? I am struggling with this one. I already noticed a few things have sold out. (I know, crazy!) However, J.Crew Factory offered better deals the day after the last few sneak peeks. What are your thoughts on this?
Lastly, Don't forget, they are also offering up to 50% off prices in their regular site, and an additional 25% off clearance items (ending in $0.99) with promo code SALE25. This offer also expires December 26, 2013.

Have you received this email? Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? Any items you are interested in? Should you purchase items during the sneak peek or should you wait? Please share!


  1. I clicked on the long pencil skirt in double-serge cotton (60895), and I noticed a Final Sale message at the bottom. Already? Didn't they just debut today?

  2. I noticed the final sale showing up on that skirt too...liking the spearmint pencil but as I watch the snow fall outside I can't quite get myself to purchasing cotton pencil skirts and bathing suits!

    I agree about the pricing game...we've historically had better deals the day after the sneak peek rollout. I like the charley sweater in dash dot and the printed pintuck top in both colors. Also, this is the first time I recall seeing bathing suits on the factory site, am I right? Perhaps I'm forgetting. I will probably stick it out to see if we'll see better prices.

  3. I think I'm in the minority, but I'm not finding anything at Factory lately, including this rollout.

    1. I feel the same. Nothing that interesting other than the coral vero clutch in the styling pics which is not for sale on the website.

  4. Found nothing I liked (or didn't already own) for this roll-out. Hoping the next one is better!

  5. I bought the new 5" Printed Stretch Chino shorts (the green/pink ones) in store last week with the 50% +20% off promo --a much better deal than the current promo. The print is unique and really striking in person, and the green is more predominant than in the online photos. Plan on wearing them on a cruise to Mexico next week. Any time they have a cute printed short in a longer inseam for a reasonable price, I'll gladly buy.

  6. Again, even though I have an account and am signed up for emails, no email. I've asked three times thru chat and email to please make sure I'm being sent email. Not in my junk, and I always get the retail emails but never factory emails. Its so annoying.

  7. Many of these items have been on the website for a while and for cheaper so not sure why they billing them as early access. No must haves for me this go around.
