SALE ALERTS | what jess wore


7/18/18 - Get 40% off everything at LOFT (or 50% off for LOVELOFT cardmembers)! Get 40% off PLUS styles (PLUS styles ship for free). You can also save an extra 50% off sale styles. Use code HOTHOTHOT. The sale ends Sunday 7/22 at 5PM ET so it's entirely possible there could be some sort of online flash sale after this latest promotion. I'm taking a wild guess that it'll be a flash sale on the sale/clearance section. Shop my sales picks here:

Get 40% off your purchase + an extra 10% off at Ann Taylor. Use code MAKEPLANS. Get up to 60% off sale styles during their semi annual sale.

There's a new post with a special guest and I also updated my #nsale post yet again with the latest items I received.

7/17/18 - Get up to 60% off sale styles at Ann Taylor during their semi annual sale. If you're itching to shop their pretty new arrivals you can use the code THANKS3 for an extra $50 off $100+ full-price promotional purchases.

7/16/18 - There's yet another new online deal at LOFT! Full-price skirts are now on promotion for 50% off. Since no code is needed on you can use code APR441LC to save an extra $25 off $75+ on full-price promotional categories including tops and sweaters which are also still 50% off. FYI. The next everything sale is 50% off for cardmembers and 40% off for non-cardmembers starting on 7/18 according to a recent mailer I received last week.

Today is Amazon Prime Day (deals start at 3PM ET)! I love Amazon Prime and I actually have Amazon Prime shipping benefits through my friend. She took advantage of Amazon Household which means that we both enjoy free Prime delivery benefits! I told my cousin about the ability to share Prime during Thanksgiving one year and he kindly shared his Prime delivery benefits with my sister. When sharing Prime each adult keeps his or her personal Amazon account while sharing the benefits at no additional cost. I may have ordered some new dresses to try today because they were free shipping & free returns via Amazon Prime. I always look for items clearly labeled 'prime & FREE returns' to make sure the entire transaction is a breeze even if I change my mind. An Amazon Prime membership is $119 per year but if you're willing to share your account then you could split the cost of the membership with other family members or friends! If you're a student a Prime student membership is $59 a year and they're offering a 6 month free trial. Amazon Prime is much than just free shipping and you can read more about all of the benefits here.

7/15/18 - There's a new online deal at LOFT! Select full-price summer dresses are now on promotion for $30. Since no code is needed on you can use code APR441LC to save an extra $25 off $75+ on full-price promotional categories. Shop a few of my sales picks linked to this post from my Insta Shop.

Flash sale alert! Get an extra 60% off sale styles at Ann Taylor. Valid in stores and online. Sale ends 7/17 at 3AM ET. Also, you can still get 50% off full-price tops and sweaters using the code TOPITOFF. I took this new geo scalloped pintucked shell in my usual size XSP and it is the sweetest top (update: I reordered it in size XXSP to compare to see if I need a closer fit)! I also just ordered this scalloped textured knit shell to try. This fringe straw bag featured on Ann Taylor's Instagram here is now only $16 after discounts but I ordered it the other day when it was on sale for $19.99. Lastly, my favorite straw pom pom clutch (c/o) last featured in this sponsored post is now $23.99 after discounts. Please refer to my tip below for lower minimum shipping on orders of $25+ using the ShopRunner shipping option.

7/14/18 - Today's daily online deals at LOFT: Tops and sweaters are now 50% off and a PLUS style flash sale! Also get an extra 40% off sale styles. Since no code is needed on you can use code APR441LC to save an extra $25 off $75+ on the aforementioned full-price promotional categories. This magnolia ruffle henley shell is on my wish list and this starry sky ruffle tie neck top is really cute. Update 7/16: I saw this floral shirred square neck top in store yesterday and the colors and print are so pretty in person.

Sign up for ShopRunner and enjoy free 2-day shipping (and returns) on minimum orders of $25+ at Ann Taylor. You also get free returns via ShopRunner but so far I've been making my returns in stores. Being a member of ShopRunner allows me to buy exactly what I want without adding filler items to my shopping cart. This is not an ad and I'm just sharing since I enjoy the service. I 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'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.


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 THANKS3 for an extra $50 off $100+ full-price promotional purchases. 

LOFT - The latest savings code is APR441LC for an additional $25 off qualifying full-price promotional purchases of $75+ (excludes Lou & Grey).


$15 July Birthday Coupon - Valid in all Ann Inc. Stores
$15 July Birthday Coupon - Valid in all Ann Inc. Stores

Get $15 off in stores when you use your LOVELOFT Card or Ann Taylor Card. Expires 7/31/18. Your purchase must be made with your LOVELOFT Card or Ann Taylor Card and must equal $15 or more. Valid in-store only at LOFT, LOFT Outlet, Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor Factory Store, and Lou & Grey. Not valid online. Save this offer to your mobile wallet by texting JULY to 28162. Refer to the fine print here.

Update 7/3: Online I noticed that the code BDAYGEM works for $10 off.


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.
