Anyone spotted 36S Harris tweed blazers around on sale?

How easy is it for a person to call in an order for some Aldens and get a current discount, even if it shows excluded online? I need a pair in my life.

I dunno; how easy is it for you to do the other impossible things in your life?

I've had luck getting a discount both in person and on the phone, never through chat / email. I'm at about 30% success rate.

Good luck!

You could always find an employee that you know to get them for you. Employees are allowed to buy "gifts". They have to pay for them themselves however.

Good to know. Now I just have to find someone that works there. Isn't there a few members here that do? My closest J crew is a little over an hour away, & haven't been there. Reason being is I moved from Iowa, where there was 1 store about 2 hours away. I just buy online.

Just an update, I called and talked to the store, they didn't have any discounts they could set me up with, even after telling them I planned to make a fairly large order(certainly not a humble brag, just wanted to give them the facts, as maybe it would help)

I called the 800#, and after some checking and tweaking, the lovely lady on the phone set me up with the 20% off for the 2 day sale. I'll have the Longwing Blucher in Tobacco coming. Really wanted some shell#8, but finding them on any sort of sale would be more rare than getting this discount I only presume...
post #714 of 987
so you got 20% off the longwing blucher but the discount wasn't valid for shell #8?

I didn't want the black cadet bluchers. That's all that I saw on their website for shell cordovan other than the boots & chukkas.

Is it the case that the shoes you eventually ordered were not eligible for the 20% off?

Essentially yes. The lady on the phone said it applied to all regular priced items, then she went to add it on the website & it didn't let her. She then did some other checking on her computer on another spot & it let her apply the discount. It took a few mins, but well worth the 20% off of them. Now if the LWB was available in the #8 with J Crew that would have been fantastic.

If you open a J. Crew card, they apply a discount for absolutely everything.

While on the subject, anyone ever had a student discount applied in store after ordering Aldens online (or just ordering through the store)?

Many of the Aldens are on the exclusion list, meaning that they are unavailable for discounted purchase by employees.

In that case, the best they can do is purchase a gift card on your behalf at 30% discount and then you can use the gift card to buy your Aldens.
