    Correction; it's giving me a 38% discount before taxes and shipping!

    Notice the text? It mentions the a corporate event from 2009. You'll only get 15% in the e-mail confirmation. I placed a (small) order yesterday after I noticed this error, but I would have placed it anyway.
    The 38% is really the compound savings. For one suit: $680 from $1098 (1600/2 * .85).

    Hm...you're only ordering one suit, it appears. So, I think there may be two errors there...

    Yeah, I noticed the 2009 date as well. I've been testing it out, and the 38% only works with 1818 suits, and not with shoes or Black Fleece. I'm thinking of taking a shot and see what happens.

    You're still only getting 15% off. The only mistake here is that you're getting the 2 for $1598 price for only one suit.

    The math:

    $1598 / 2 = $799.50 for the base price of the suit.

    $799.50 x 0.15 = $119.93.

    1098.00 - 799.50 + 119.93 = $418.43

    The text in the red box stating that he's getting 25% based on the Corporate event from 2009 is also a mistake. Granted, that's not reflected in any numbers, but sometimes, you'll only see the full discount in the confirmation e-mail, which is noted on the bottom of the page.
    Thus, there really are two mistakes.

    It's on people, extra 20 - 15% at BB. It seems to apply on clearance items as well. :slayer:

    Thanks for the update.

    The BF Pebble and Pony Saddle Shoe literally sold out while I was checking out :censored:

    Doesn't stack -- placed order online, got only the 20 percent, canceled order.

    Probably corporate discount :facepalm:

    Assuming that's you were, has it ever stacked when placing an online order? I've heard people do it with their local sales professionals but never online

    Not necessarily with another sale, but with the 30% sale they had in March you could apply it for some of their stacked deals (i.e., their 2 for $159 milano chinos or 3 for $219 non-iron ESFs). Turned out to be quite a bargain.

    Wait they were trying to stack corporate discount + Golden fleece + 2 for/3 for deals?

    I would just assume that you couldn't stack corporate discount with Golden Fleece.

    Looks like this discount applies towards the 2 for $159 chinos.

    SUBTOTAL: $193.50
    DISCOUNT: -$58.35
    TOTAL: $135.15

    Doesn't show the discount, but it is 15% off $159 and not 15% off $193.50
