J.Crew offers a 15% educational discount to both teachers and college students who show a valid school ID. The discount is valid for in-store purchases only, and you must show proof of ID at checkout.
How does the J.Crew student discount work?
This is a weird discount. Not weird because you get 15% of J.Crew merchandise for all in-store purchases. That part is awesome. It’s weird because of who they decided to give the discount to.
The first group that qualifies is teachers. Apparently, this means all teachers: kindergarten through university, as long as they have a school ID.
The second group is college students, but only college students. No K-12 here. I suppose the logic is that if you still live with your parents, you likely don’t need the discount as bad as someone living on a college budget. Makes sense.
Regardless, as long as you are in one of these two categories, simply ask about the discount at checkout and show your school ID.
The fine print: Offer is valid for in-store purchases only at any J.Crew, J.Crew Factory or J.Crew Mercantile store. It cannot be used on past purchases or on gift cards. No online purchases. Not valid on third-party branded merchandise. Good in the U.S. and Canada only.
What can you buy with J.Crew education pricing?
J.Crew began in the 1940s and for years operated as a catalog business known as Popular Merchandise. Popular Merchandise launched J.Crew in 1989 in downtown Manhattan selling a huge variety of popular clothing for all ages.
The stores sell a variety of clothing including swimwear, sweaters, denim, dresses, suiting, jewelry, and shoes – all of which are eligible for the 15% college student and teacher discount.
