SALE ALERTS | what jess wore


11/16/18 - Cardmembers get early access to Black Fri-Yay! Get 50% off your purchase at LOFT through 11/19 at 3AM ET with your LOVELOFT or Ann Taylor card. If you're not a cardmember, get 40% off full-price tops, sweaters, leggings, and dresses. Since no code is needed on select full-price styles on promotion you can use code APR441LC for an extra $25 off your full-price promotional purchase of $75+ (click here for the in store bar code). This code excludes Lou & Grey styles. Click here for an example of my recent order with this code.

Please refer to my two new posts here and here.

11/15/18 - Cardmembers can shop Black Friday early! Get 50% off your purchase at Ann Taylor 11/15-11/19 at 3AM ET with your Ann Taylor or LOVELOFT card. Use code SHOPFIRST. The cardmember email also mentions a free tote bag with a purchase of $85+ while supplies last. Alternatively, non-cardmembers get 40% off full-price pants, denim and sweaters (yes, even cashmere) using the code NEWOUTFIT. These stretchy denim jeggings come in black and a dark wash and they run true to size. Shop a few of my other sales picks here:

Sign up for ShopRunner and enjoy free 2-day shipping on minimum orders of $25+ at Ann Taylor. You also get free mail returns for orders placed using the ShopRunner shipping option but as always you can also return your online orders in stores. Being a member of ShopRunner allows me to buy exactly what I want without adding filler items to my shopping cart. I originally signed up for ShopRunner via PayPal which means I can enjoy a free membership for two years. ShopRunner is also a complimentary service for AmEx and Mastercard holders! I have since signed up for ShopRunner through Mastercard after my LOFT card was upgraded to a World Mastercard.

I'm not sure how much of this old article from 2012 still holds true but I really wish LOFT would also offer ShopRunner as a shipping option. Once in a while LOFT does flash sales with free shipping. Alternatively you can always place an order in store on their iPads and they will ship the items to you free of charge. The shipping fee is waived for online orders placed in stores via their special iPad devices at both LOFT and Ann Taylor stores.


Use the following codes on full-price promotional items during no code sales. e.g. 40% off everything, 30% off select full-price items, etc.

Ann Taylor - Use the code THANKS12 for an extra $50 off $100+ full-price promotional purchases.

LOFT - The latest savings code is APR441LC for $25 off your full-price promotional purchase of $75+ (click here for the in store bar code).

Use code BDAYLIBRA online for $10 off  your full-price promotional purchase of $50+.


If you're a LOFT or Ann Taylor cardholder you can also get an additional 15% off (automatically applied at checkout) on the first Tuesday of each month. Even better, this cardmember perk can be combined with all current promotions*! I shared how to shop during the sweet spot of the cardmember discount in this old post.

Occasionally the stars align and LOFT and Ann Taylor sales overlap with the first Tuesday of the month. Whenever this happens I try to hold out until midnight 12AM while it's technically Tuesday Eastern time (but it's still Monday Pacific time) to save an extra 15% off at checkout (no code needed). This extra cardmember discount works on top of all current promotions. The downside of waiting until the tail end of a sale to place an order is running the risk of having your item and/or size sell out in the more popular items. However, if you're patient then sizes eventually pop back due to returns.

To recap:

- 12-3AM ET on Tuesdays is the sweet spot of the tail-end of a sale.
- 12-3AM ET on Wednesdays is another sweet spot because sometimes new sales promotions start on Wednesdays at 12AM ET.

Remember to make those extra savings work in your favor!

*The first Tuesday cardmember offer is combinable with other promotions but it is not combinable with cardmember offers or coupons.


If you're a Boston local you can use the Prudential Center's PRUferred Card to save 20% off your full-price purchase at LOFT (excludes Lou & Grey) or Ann Taylor. There is no minimum purchase amount required to use the card. The PRUferred discount works on full-price and full-price promotional items. I called the Prudential LOFT store for clarification and they confirmed that the PRUferred card will not work on top of store wide (percentage off) sales so the card will not work when the store is having a 40% off everything sale. However, the PRUferred card will combine on top of promotions on select full-price items (e.g. $39.50 pants and jeans). Stop by the Concierge Desk located in the Center Court to pick up a PRUferred card for free.


Refer to all of my LOFT reviews here and Ann Taylor reviews here.

If you're looking for a review of a specific item you can always search my blog by the exact item name. Alternatively, the search terms 'whatjesswore' + the exact product name in your preferred search engine should also reveal whether or not I've reviewed the item on my blog. I am usually the first search result if a prior review is available.
