In Madewell Stores & Online: 30% Off Sale

"Thanks!" to many of you, who let us know about the following promotion this morning.

Madewell is offering customers to take an extra 30% off sale with promo code SWEET. The offer expires May 26, 2015. The fine print includes:
Offer valid on the purchase of sale items in Madewell stores and at madewell.com from May 22, 2015, 12:01am ET through May 26, 2015, 11:59pm ET. Offer not valid on phone orders. Offer cannot be applied to previous purchases or the purchase of gift cards and cannot be redeemed for cash or used in combination with any other offer. In-store discount automatically taken at the register. To redeem online, enter code SWEET in the promo code box at checkout. Limit one promotional code per order. Offer valid in the U.S. only. Terms of offer are subject to change.
Make sure you double check the sale item page to see if the item is marked as "Final Sale" or not. Some sale items are and others are not. It is easy to overlook this and then get stuck with an item.

B&M stores were offering an additional 20% off sale, so it is nice to see it jump back to 30% off. They also have some items lower priced in stores than online. For example, the  Cutout Sundress in Stripe (item C0619; $148.00) is on sale online for $99.99 and in stores for $89.99. By the way, I own this dress and it is gorgeous! I know the cutouts on the sides are not for everyone, but if you were a white tank underneath, it actually looks like part of the dress' design.

Lastly, Madewell is also offering 60 days of Spotify Premium. This offer expires June 28, 2015.

Seek & Find: Will you visit J.Crew this Weekend?

This is the weekly "sale watch" post, to help each other find sale items at our various local J.Crew stores. ;)

If you are stopping by a J.Crew store this weekend to see what's available (if anything!) in the SALE, or to see some NEW ARRIVALS {sigh!} in person, maybe you might be willing to share that with us in this post. In particular, if you could share with us a few of the noteworthy items that are available, at what prices, and potential sizes the store is carrying (as well as the store location)- that would be fantastic!

Also, please let us know if your local store is carrying an additional percent off sale. Thanks in advance!!! :)

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!

Shop For the Weekend with Extra 50% Off Sale Styles at J.Crew!

"Thanks!" to many of you, who let us know about the following promotion.


J.Crew is offering customers to take an extra 50% off on sale items in their brick & mortar (B&M) stores. The offer expires May 25, 2015. The fine print includes:
*Offer valid on the purchase of sale items in J.Crew stores from May 21, 2015, through May 25, 2015. Offer not valid in the 769 Madison Avenue store, Liquor Store, Ludlow Shops or J.Crew Factory stores; at jcrew.com or jcrewfactory.com; or on phone orders. Offer cannot be applied to previous purchases or the purchase of gift cards and cannot be redeemed for cash or combined with any other offer. Discount automatically taken at the register. Offer valid in the U.S. and Canada only. Terms of offer are subject to change. 
As many of you have noticed and mentioned this week, J.Crew stores already were offering this promotion. It is nice to know that it will continue through the weekend.

I was in my local B&M store the other day and the sale section was overflowing with merchandise. Unfortunately, it was not moving even at an additional 50% off. It was kind of sad. It's probably time to drop the starting sale prices some more...

I do hope this promotion extends to online as well. (I know it won't, but it really should.)

J.Crew Factory: 50% Off (and a mystery offer of up to $100 off)

"Thanks!" to many of you, who let us know about the following promotion this morning.

J.Crew Factory is offering customers to take up to 50% off items online and in stores (prices are as shown). This offer expires May 25, 2015. The fine print includes:
*Prices as marked at jcrewfactory.com reflect discount. In-store discounts as advertised. Offer valid on purchases made in J.Crew Factory stores and at jcrewfactory.com from May 20, 2015, 12:01am ET through May 25, 2015, 11:59pm ET. Offer not valid in J.Crew stores, at jcrew.com or on phone orders. Offer cannot be applied to previous purchases or the purchase of gift cards and cannot be redeemed for cash. In-store offer may only be combined with the mystery scratch-off offer. Offer not valid on third-party branded merchandise. In-store discount automatically taken at the register. Offer valid in the U.S. and Canada only. Terms of offer are subject to change.
If you live near a B&M store, they are also offering a mystery offer at the cash register. Customers can get an offer of $10, $20, $50 or $100 off an order.

I am not going to lie, I ended up buying too much with this offer. The prices seem pretty good (even without any additional percent off promotion). I picked up a few dresses (including the Factory Striped Basketweave Dress, item C4998, shown above), a few sandals, and even a coat. Let's hope they are just as lovely in person!

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