Now at J.Crew: New Promo-Priced Items and Markdowns Plus an Extra 40% Off - EXTRA40!!!

J.Crew is offering an Extra 40% Off Final Sale Items with code EXTRA40 at checkout until 10.12.13. The Promo-Priced items also receive the discount, but are NOT final sale...gotta love that! They have also done a 'switch-up' on the Promo-priced items this items have been marked to promo-price, while others have gone back to regular-price or marked down to sale price.

For those of you who aren't familiar with Promo-priced items, they are select Regular-price pieces that J.Crew marks down to a 'Promotional Price' for a short amount of time. These items are eligible for any extra % off sale or full-price promotions that may occur at any time. The Promo-priced items are also eligible for the Educator and Student Discounts, so if you are a teacher or student you can receive an additional 15% off on them, as well.

If an item is on promo or sale online, but not in the store, ask the sales associate if they will match the online price, and apply any extra % off that may be happening at that time. You can also ask to place a 'Blue Martini' (formerly Red Phone) order for an online promo-priced or sale item and have any extra % off taking place in the store applied to it, as well.

The promo-prices are usually in effect for a week or two (sometimes longer), then they either go back up to full-price or move on into Final Sale. I have noted the majority of the Women's Promo-priced items currently available on the J.Crew website, as well as the items that have been marked down.

  1. Is this the lowest price we'll see on the striped excursion? Aka should I bite the bullet now?

    1. Hi Elizabeth! The striped excursion vest will eventually get priced lower, and will sell out very quickly at that point. It will also be final sale at that time, too. If you purchase it at promo-price now, it is still returnable if you change your mind, or if it gets priced lower and you want to return it for one at the lower price. I personally prefer to buy when items are on promo because I really do not like final sale, and my size always sells out quickly. It really depends on how much you want the vest, if you will wear it now, or are willing to wait and try to get it at a lower price, as to whether or not you should get it now. It will definitely get marked down lower at some point, but I'm not sure when. Sometimes it happens very quickly, and other times it seems to take forever. If you're going to wear it now, and wear it frequently, then go for it at the promo-price. If you can wait it out for a lower price then hold off for now. The lowest price the vests usually go though is about $69.99, so the 40% off right now is a really great deal, and not too much higher than what the markdown price will eventually be. If I were getting one, I would get it now on promo-price with the extra 40% off while it isn't final sale. HTH! :)
