Shopping Simplified: J.Crew - Extra 30% Off Promo-Priced & Spring Sale Items + an Extra 50% Off Final Sale Styles - NEWSALE!!!

Hello everyone! It's time for another All Things Simplified Shopping post, where I take the work out of sale shopping for you! My 'simplified shopping' posts will include information on the deal or % off, promo-priced items, and/or sale markdowns, and/or my personalized picks for retailers that are running current sale promotions. This time the simplified shopping is at J.Crew...

J.Crew is offering an Extra 30% Off Promo-Priced Items & Spring Sale Styles, plus an Extra 50% Off Final Sale Styles with code NEWSALE at checkout until 3.30.14. They have done a 'switch-up' on the Promo-priced items at J.Crew this week...a lot of new items have been marked to promo-price, while others have gone back to regular-price or marked down to sale price (making them final sale).

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 end in $.00 or $.50, and 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 below.


Shirts, Tops, & Tees:

Blazers, Jackets, & Outerwear:

Dresses & Skirts:

Pants, Denim, & Shorts:

Beachwear & Sleepwear:





***Just a reminder that Madewell is also offering an Extra 30% Off Promo-Priced items & Sale Styles, plus shipping is FREE on ALL orders, too! Click HERE for more details, as well as the Madewell Promo-Priced items list.

Have a lovely day, and Happy Sale Shopping! :)


  1. HI FFM( I will always think of you as FFM!),
    I am so glad to see you have come through your challenges in such a winning fashion. You are an inspiration, and I am delighted to read your new posts from your new gorgeous locale. I am still in the midst of mine, and don't have as much time as I'd like to post, but I still love to glance at everyone else's. Your beautiful pictures made me smile. It doesn't seem like you will be needing quite the same wardrobe, and are probably not as close to a mall, so I am sure you will get to know your UPS man very well. Or not, if simplifying is really your goal : )

    1. Thank you so much KnitYarns! You are right about my wardrobe, and I can already tell that many of the clothing items I own either simply will not work or else not get much use here. As for the UPS man, I saw my one in Florida less and less over the past couple of years, and my plan is to not get to know the one here very well. Of course, we will still need to ship things that we need in since the shopping here is limited, but it will not be nearly as much as it was several years ago. :)

  2. OH I am loving those photo lace pants... sigh...

    1. When I saw them I thought to myself..."those are Wendy pants". They would be so lovely on you! :)

    2. I will hold out for a 40% off! love the new site Melissa!
