Just a quick update on how to save when shopping at J.Crew! As mentioned before, you can receive a 15% discount on any online or in-store purchase with a valid college or teacher ID. Previously we stated that the 15% could not be combined with other offers or promotions. However, this is not always the case. I have found that by simply asking a sales associate or managers, they are happy to add a student/teacher discount on top of other promotions and sales going on in the store.
In college, I used my student ID to receive an additional 15% off sale items at J.Crew on a regular basis. When combined with their frequent additional 30% and 40% off sale items, it is an amazing deal!
The way the discount is calculated is by taking the 15% off the price after the additional discount on sale items has been applied. For instance, if you find a fantastic sweater on sale for $50, with an additional 40% off the sale price, they would first apply the additional 40%, making the sweater $30. After that, the 15% student/teacher discount would be applied, making the grand total $25.50!
You can score some incredible pieces for over 80% off retail when discounts are combined. Using this simple trick, I was able to update my college wardrobe with pieces I still wear today, all while living on a limited budget. Try this out and let us know if it works for you!
