In J.Crew Stores & Online: 25% Off Closet MVP Styles

"Thanks!" to  many of you who shared the following promotion from J.Crew.

J.Crew is offering an additional 25% select full priced tees, denim, tops, and more as well as an additional 40% to 50% off final sale styles with promo code FINDAFAVE. This offer expires January 27, 2015. The fine print includes:
**25% discount valid on the purchase of select full-price items. 40% and 50% discounts valid on the purchase of select final sale items. Offers valid in J.Crew stores and at jcrew.com from January 23, 2015, 12:01am ET through January 27, 2015, 11:59pm ET. In-store discounts as advertised. Offers valid online on items marked "25% off with code FINDAFAVE," "Extra 40% off with code FINDAFAVE" and "Extra 50% off with code FINDAFAVE." Offers not valid in the 769 Madison Avenue store, Liquor Store, Ludlow Shops, J.Crew Factory stores, at jcrewfactory.com or on phone orders. Offers cannot be applied to previous purchases or the purchase of gift cards and cannot be redeemed for cash or combined with any other offer. In-store discounts automatically taken at the register. To redeem online, enter code FINDAFAVE in the promo code box at checkout. Limit one promotional code per order. Offers valid in the U.S. and Canada only. Terms of offers are subject to change. Final sale items cannot be returned or exchanged.
It's good to see that J.Crew is offering another promotion- and one that includes so many categories.

I am also wondering if B&M stores are offering an additional 40% or 50% off final sale. I am thinking that most stores are probably in the process of sending back their sale merchandise to the warehouses. But with the new inventory system, I am not sure.

Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? Any items you are excited to get? Please share!

J.Crew's February 2015 Catalog on Pinterest

"Thanks!" to TeriLynn13 (in this post), Silver Lining (in this post), as well as JSR (in this post), who let us know that there are a few images from the February 2015 catalog on Pinterest. (Click here for J.Crew on Pinterest.)

Right now the images are from the men's section of the catalog. Keep checking back during the day to see more photos being uploaded. J.Crew tends to post in reverse order of the catalog (men's, crewcuts, weddings, then women).


On a bright note, this should mean the catalog is available in J.Crew stores. Plus new arrivals are slated to show up this week, Wednesday, January 28.

Also, "thanks!" to GigisGoneShopping (in this post), who let us know that she has a preview of the women's collection over at her "J Crew January 2015 Preview" post that is definitely worth checking out.

What are your thoughts on the upcoming collection? Are there any pieces you are super excited about? Does your local store carry any of the new arrivals yet? If so, please share!

P.S. I noticed that many of you have already been reporting sale items (and in which stores) in other posts which by the way "thank you!" :) I really appreciate how helpful we are for each other!

J.Crew Personal Stylist & Shipping

Many JCAs have personal shoppers with J.Crew. One of the perks that many of us have received is waived shipping with any order. Recently I was informed that this was going away and the only way to have shipping waived was to include a full priced item with my order. (Something I heard a year ago as well. Which then J.Crew back tracked on.)

I am curious if those JCAs with personal shoppers are hearing the same thing. I am not sure since last time they did this, I noticed that some personal shoppers were saying this while others were not and still waiving the shipping fee.

Do you have a J.Crew personal shopper? Does s/he waive shipping with any order? If so, is this perk still being applied? Please share! :)
