12 Quick Tips to Save More at J. Crew

J. Crew has great basics, accessories, and preppy clothing options that are sure to make you look like a million bucks. J. Crew can certainly be expensive, with basics running upwards of $100. However, there’s no need to spend an outrageous amount of money at this store, thanks to these helpful tips.

1.   Buy from the Clearance Section Online

J. Crew has a pretty amazing sale section. If you’re on a budget, skip over the regularly priced items and head directly to the clearance section.

Since it’s online, you can filter by your size. One of the most annoying things about clearance sections is finding the perfect piece, but it being in the wrong size. Avoid this let down by filtering by your size from the start.

J. Crew has an extensive womens, mens, and even girl and boy section of the clearance rack. This way, everyone in your family can get a nice, chic outfit at a reasonable price.

2.   Sign up for Emails

Signing up for emails is a guaranteed way to never miss a sale. Get exclusive alerts about sales, promo codes, and deals happening on the J. Crew website. You can find the sign-up option at the bottom right-hand corner of the J. Crew homepage.

You’ll also receive 15% off and free shipping on your first order when you sign up for emails. Who can resist a discount like that? This discount can also be applied to sale items. That means savings on savings!

3.   Check out Current Coupon Codes

Signing up for emails is the best way to stay up to date on new coupon codes. However, if you’d rather not give over your email, there’s still ways to find coupon codes for J. Crew.

One way is by looking on our deals page specific for J. Crew and J. Crew Factory. This page stays up to date on current coupon codes for you. You can easily see all the coupon codes J. Crew has in store from this one page. Check this page before finalizing your order through J. Crew. You may be missing out on a great deal if you don’t check here first.

4.   Order in Store

Did you know that if you find something you love in store but they don’t have the size you want you can order it in store to be directly shipped to your home? There’s typically a red phone in store that you can use to place your order. The shipping cost is waived no matter the price you spend.

The only catch is that at least one of the items in store has to be full-price that you’re ordering. This is a great way to get everything you need in the correct size and color you want.

5.   Use your Student ID

J. Crew values education and those who work and partake in it. That’s why if you’re a teacher or student you can get 15% off at J. Crew when you present your student or teacher ID. That’s a pretty great deal, considering most people only get 15% once when signing up for the mailing list.

Bear in mind that you can’t combine any other coupons with this one. You also can’t use the promotion online. However, for a limited time J. Crew is offering the discount online.

Click here to see if you’re eligible. Also, if you order through the red phone in store, as mentioned above, the discount will be applied to your online purchase.

6.   Open a Credit Card

If you love shopping at J. Crew it may be worth opening a credit card with them. Many benefits can come from this decision. For one, you’ll receive $25 reward cards for every $500 you spend. This little discount treat certainly will help sweeten the deal. Also, you’ll receive invitations to private events that card carrying members only are invited to. 

You’ll also receive early access to select new items and discounts going on throughout the year. On top of all that you’ll also receive a birthday surprise. You’ll also receive personalized services that only you and other card members receive. You’ll get complimentary standard alterations on clothes that don’t fit just right. You’ll also have access to personal shopping.

The store will even open up early or stay open late to work around your schedule, and you’ll never have to wait in line because you have a cardmember priority number. 

All of these added luxuries will not only help you save money, but give you a bit of an elegant treat with the deal. However, only embark on this tip if you know you’re able to pay the balance back every month.

7.   Return an Item for a Lower Price

If you have a brand new, full price item, don’t rip the tag off right away. J. Crew rotates through their selection of clothes pretty quickly.

This means that you can buy your desired item now, but then wait for a bit to see if it goes on sale eventually. A lot of the time, it will be discounted rather quickly. The worst feeling is knowing you could’ve bought an item for cheaper and with J. Crew’s lax return policy, you can do just that.

8.   Shop at the Outlet Store

J. Crew has online and in person outlet stores that sell cheaper items at the same quality. This is called factory J. Crew. Think of it as your giant clearance section. To make the deal even better you can find the clearance section of the outlet store for the ultimate deals.

9.   Sign up to J. Crew Rewards

If you’re looking for more of a reason to shop at J. Crew and a way to save while you’re at it, check out J. Crew rewards. Their reward program gives you a $5 reward for every 200 points you earn. Every dollar at J. Crew you spend gets you one point, so $200 spent will get you a $5 gift card.

If you’re already spending money at J. Crew, you may as well earn some points while doing it. Also, there are other benefits to becoming a rewards member. For one, you’ll get free shipping on all orders, no matter the price of the purchase.

This is also great because for everyone other than J. Crew reward members, shipping costs money no matter the amount you spend at J. Crew. You’ll also get special access to discounts, new products, and more.

It’s completely free to sign up, so do so as soon as you decide to make a new purchase from the site.

10.  Attend an In Store Event

Across the country, J. Crew storefronts will have in store events, usually to support a charitable cause. Taking part in these events can be fun, good for the cause, and can get you a discount. Often, to encourage buyers to spend more J. Crew will offer discounts to shoppers once they get to the event. Participate in the fun and save some money!

11.   Check out J. Crew Best Deals

J. Crew has a section on their website specifically reserved for their best deals at the time. This is a reliable place to check for sales at the time, seasonal, weekly, and otherwise. This is a great place to look before you check out. There’s probably a deal out there that will work on what you want to buy at the time.

12. J. Crew Black Friday

J. Crew has fantastic deals for black Friday and cyber Monday. One of the great things about this is that the sales are for men, women, girls, and boys. That means you can shop for a new wardrobe for the whole family.
