Express Winter Sale – $15 off $30 & $30 off $75 with code 9830
Plus: 40% off select shirts/sweaters/pants. Thanks to HM for requesting picks
Codes, select sale items, and thresholds. It’s a complicated one, but the just launched Express Winter sale has some good basics if you hunt and peck through Express.com The code you need is 9830. That’ll get you $15 off any purchases (including marked down sale items) over $30. And $30 if you get up above $75. If you plan on shopping in store, you can print off a coupon right from the home page. Same level of discounts apply.
The sale runs through Monday, and there are even some whispers that there could be free shipping tomorrow with no minimum purchase. But those are just whispers, and more often than not whispers don’t come true. Let’s get on with it. Hold onto your hats, this gets a little goofy.
Striped Wool Tie – $24.84 | Plaid Wool Tie – $24.84 IF you buy socks & use the code
Stay with me here because this might get convoluted. Express is smart when it comes to pricing, sales, and codes. The ties are on sale for $29.94. A fair price, but just six cents under the threshold to use the $15 off $30 coupon code. So… buy a pair of overpriced socks for $9.50 (gotta love the subtle but still bold thinner than normal rugby stripe), use the coupon code, and all of a sudden you’re paying under $25 for the tie and the socks. Ta-da. They can be had for even cheaper if you think your better half would use Express lip gloss.
1mx Fitted Cotton Shirt – $24.65 a piece IF you buy two & a pair of socks, & use the code
Like the tie example above, you have to work their system here. Buy one shirt and you’ll pay $49.90. Buy a second and you’ll get that one for $19.90, meaning… total cost for two Express 1MX shirts with the $15 off code is now $54.80. But the hefty $30 off coupon code kicks in at $75. So… drop a pair of $9.50 socks in your cart. That pushes the total pre code to $79.30. The code then delivers the larger $30 off discount, and you end up paying $49.30 for two Express 1mx Shirts and what basically amounts to a free pair of socks. I know the Express 1mx has its construction flaws. But personally, I wear the hell out of them.
Merino Wool Cardigan – $37.80 w/code (reg. $88)
Express is notorious for mislabeling things on their website. So is it really 100% merino wool? Probably. The retail price of $88 is a bit much for a mix. And their other merino wool sweaters and vests really are 100%. Not a bad looking cardigan if you’re into the traditional button up sweater look.
Tweed Wool Mix Producer Pant – $32.90 w/ code (reg. $79.90)
Some have complained that these are poorly constructed. I tried them on in person and I would have no qualms about spending just over $30 on them. It’s tough to find a tweedy pant to go with say, a navy or black blazer. These have the perfect look. And although they’re more synthetic than actual wool (I don’t think they feel that bad to the touch at all), the price is hard to ignore.
