This is one of the better promotions I have seen at J.Crew. I love that the additional percent off full priced items is 40%!!! That is huge. Remember when they rarely did a percent off full priced items?!?

Also, it is about time for them to up the additional percent off on certain final sale items. 75% off is a great start. They just need to add more items to the Final Sale category because items are still lingering. Also remember when there use to be just 600 items in the sale section, and 2000 seemed like we hit the jackpot?!?


Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? What item are you hoping to pick up? Please share!
