Anthropologie’s best SALE promo of the year is back!!

…and it’s back! Anthropologie has reinstated its extra 40% off sale items promo! This move is not unexpected (thank you tipsters!!) but is probably not great for Anthropologie, earnings-wise. Unfortunately for them there’s lots — and lots — of stuff languishing in the sale section right now so this is probably the best way to clear things out. Use the code XTRA40 at checkout.

This promo is valid both in-store and online, but cannot be combined with other promos like the birthday discount (which I am holding in my hot little hand right now along with my fellow early Aquarians and Capricorns). It looks to me like the store fulfillment is off for now — several items I had my eye on suddenly went out of stock last night.

Anthro updated the sale selection a few days ago with new items, and here are a few other awesome items currently available to buy — all prices are before the extra 40% off promo is applied:

To me, this seems to be evidence that Anthro’s strategy of pricing items higher at the beginning with more promos and waiting longer to do 2nd/3rd/etc cuts might need some rethinking. What do you think community?
