    agreed. not saying people should go around threatening to sue. just saying that if you get a smelly jacket with no tags, don't fret, you will get your money back.

    I hear you, but a lot of people go into a situation with that in the back pocket, and knowing that you have it makes some people give off an air of belligerence, even if it's just subconscious. I prefer to be very accommodating until the very moment I need to not be. Best way to do that is to ask for something as a favor, rather than as something to which you have a right, no matter the circumstance. If they know you are understating your case, they are not immediately defensive.

    I generally like preparing a lawsuit before I buy an item and I threaten to sue in the comments section of the order.

    The comments section of every website ever will make you want to renounce your humanity. Star Trek nerds, what's that saying about the bar, "A more wretched hive of scum and villainy you'll not find." That's the internet.

    I know. Never saw Star Trek as a kid. The intent is correct even if the exact wording is not.

    Is that the extra 30% off Sale?

    The promo code you entered is either not recognized, is not valid for this order or has expired. Please call 0808 234 3686 or email julie@jcrew.com for assistance.

    I believe that promo only wotks for USA orders.

    Call them and ask. It's not like they try to keep the the codes secret.

    I would have a crazy sale that starts before and continues through labor day = less sales for my competitors. (e.g., NewEgg before black friday)

    Might as well just have everything on sale all the time. Slippery slope to that first mover "advantage"

    I would just put all my stock up at 90% off from the get go, then have it slowly increase in price as it stays in the shelves.

    This creates an incentive to buy, as the product will only grow in value.

    Works for the stock market, how has no one thought of this.

    If you're the only store doing this, all of your stock will be gone within a week. 90% off leaves room for a whole shit ton of negative profits?

    It works for the stock market because that's how all stock markets work (as investments) whereas clothes don't appreciate in value like that.

    I know its just a joke tho.

    Lol, one of two things will happen:

    a) 90% off is too cheap, Everyone buys it at 90% off and you just sold a lot of merchandise at a loss.

    b) 90% off is too expensive, no one buys it at this price and your policy does not allow you to mark it down to move your stock off the shelves.
