Here's a shopping tip that is sure to perk up your Monday. J.Crew's lower-cost Factory Store -- usually found at far-flung outlet malls -- is now online. No more schlepping to the outlet mall to get fantastic prices on J.Crew jeans, cords, dresses, tops and everything else.
There are a number of downsides, however:
Many items are final sale, so they are not returnable or exchangeable.
You'll save on gas but pay for shipping, unless you hit a minimum or find a coupon.
J.Crew Factory items purchased online can only be returned through the mail and at J.Crew Factory stores.
Buying online precludes you from seeing the quality of the J.Crew Factory merchandise.
If you can make peace with those four factors, you are ready to shop! I saw dresses from $50-$88, jewelry from $15-$60 and sweaters for $36-$60.
Check back later today and through the week for more great clothing coupons at WalletPop.
