    This would almost be worth signing up for their card. I just worry about signing up and getting some lame credit limit like $1000 and taking up half of that on a shoe purchase. Aren't store cards usually a hit on your credit if you use a lot of your limit? Just checking....

    i got my jcrew card code in my e-mail 30% off. i'm pretty sure code only works when you do a purchase using your j.crew card.

    You will get a lame credit limit... what I typically do, is send a payment in right after making the charge so the debit and credit post within the same billing cycle and when they report to the bureaus it shows as 0% of the credit limit being used... From what I understand any balance on any card over a certain percentage (I think 30% of the credit limit) begins to incrementally negatively affect your credit score...

    The 30% off promo is only for cardmembers and their card is just so-so. For every $500 you spend you get $25 toward your next purchase. But if you sign up you get an additional 10% off your first purchase. Other non-cardholder benefits I like is the 15% discount on ALL items (if purchased in store) if you're either a student or a teacher. The SAs in the stores routinely give me this discount on 3rd party merchandise, too. Once you get your SA's card you simply call in and have them place the order applying these discounts so walk-in purchases are no longer necessary. Additionally, their credit limit is easy to increase which I had to do on a couple occasions because of needing a different sized Aldens sent out so I could return the one that didn't fit.

    That is correct... its only valid with the use of your J Crew card...

    Anyone ever had any suede Aldens sent back for restoration? Before and after pics maybe? I imagine I'll be sending my suede chukkas in very soon and just wondering what to expect for the uppers.

    I suspect they wouldn't touch the suede uppers, other than a cleaning and brushing perhaps. There's not really any finish to restore or anything like that. Or maybe they would re-dye?

    Is there a new card members code? I'm a card member and haven't received any 30% off code recently. I think the last one was at least half a year ago.
