J.Crew just ran a “Prime Time Sale” to rival Amazon’s, and if you missed the deals there’s no need for self-loathing: the preppy brand will be back with more deals just in time for Labor Day!
Yep, that’s right, your favorite store for chino shorts and colorful cardigans will be ending the summer on a high note. Don’t even think about buying anything full price before then! (Except for the items like cashmere sweaters that are always excluded from these promotions.)
What Is It
J.Crew regularly offers a discount on full-priced and sale items with a coupon code at checkout. Whether you get 30%, 40% or 50% off makes all the difference in the world (especially for the bigger ticket items, like maxi dresses and wool coats).
(Psst—they’re running a promotion right now for an extra 50% off sale items with code WHOA. Go, go, go!)
