25% Off Select Styles at J.Crew {extra 25% off sale styles too!}

"Thanks!" to many of you, who let us know about the following promotion this morning.

J.Crew is offering an additional 25% off select merchandise and an extra 25% off Final Sale using promo code ALMOSTFALL. This offer expires August 28, 2014. The fine print for this offer includes:
*Discount valid on final sale items and items marked "25% off with code ALMOSTFALL" or as advertised in stores. Offer valid in J.Crew stores and at jcrew.com from August 26, 2014, 12:01am ET through August 28, 2014, 11:59pm ET. Offer not valid in Liquor Store or Ludlow Shops; in 769 Madison Avenue, Bloor Street or J.Crew Factory stores; at jcrewfactory.com; or on phone orders. Offer cannot be applied to previous purchases and cannot be redeemed for cash or used in combination with any other offer. In-store discount automatically taken at the register. To redeem online, enter code ALMOSTFALL in the promo code box at checkout. Limit one promotional code per order. Offer valid in the U.S. and Canada only. Terms of offer are subject to change. Final sale items cannot be returned or exchanged.
I like that this promotion is available both online and in stores. Plus, that there is a promotion for new arrivals.

What I am not liking? Just 25% off for FINAL sale?!? C'mon now J.Crew. There are over 2000+ items in the Women section alone and things are. not. moving. Why would I want the same items, at the same sale price, that were eligible for 50% off and not final sale several weeks ago? (Or for that matter, was eligible for 30% off just a few days ago? Losing 5% is not a lot, but it is something.)

I understand that there are several items that are new to sale, and a deep discount doesn't make sense for those items yet. However, anything that has been in the sale section for over 4 months need to go. Let it go...

Will you be taking advantage of this promotion? If so, what items are you interested in?
