JCP Fair and Square Pricing Shopping Experience #jcpfinds

I was invited to check out JCP’s new Fair and Square pricing at a Concord, NH store in February.  Armed with two nine year old girls and a gift card to spend at JCP’s we were ready to experience the new prices as seen in various commercials all over the television and internet.

Much like MommaDjane who found$15 boots, we found some awesome deals on boots at our local NH JCP store as well. I did not pick up any boots as I soon found out when you shop with two 9 year old girls, one being your daughter, the trip ends up being more about your daughter and her friend than yourself.

I did, however, pick up a nice shirt for just $25. My daughter’s friend scored a bathrobe for just $1 and my daughter scored Barbie earbuds for just $1. I was also able to get a $6 sequin love shirt that my daughter wore for her recent chorus concert as well as a pair of jeans, two more shirts and a fancy skirt to add to her school attire.

Top name brands were so much lower than previous JCP pricing that I was in heaven and can’t wait to go back to JCP’s again in the near future to find more deals. The only downfall to the new pricing structure at JCP’s is that their signs all say “x price” and up, instead of “x price and under”, as a consumer, I can certainly see how “and up” terminology really doesn’t sell us as much as a sign that says “and under” would. This topic was also discussed by Lee over at My Sentiment ExactLee who felt the signs “and up” were also a bit deterring from a consumer prospective.

I can honestly say that I am pleased with the new pricing and although the signs may look a bit deterring to me, it won’t keep me from shopping the new fair and square pricing at JCP’s, as I have always been an avid fan of JCP’s clothing lines.

Disclosure: I was provided a gift card to go spend money at JCP’s and evaluate the new Fair and Square pricing to share with my readers any thoughts I have and deals I found while there.

The New JCPenney, Have you Heard?

Have you heard about the new JcPenney yet? On February 1st, 2012 all of JcPenney’s stores reduced their prices storewide. No more arranging your schedule to get to the next big savings event, no more trying to make it between this time and that time for sale prices. JcPenney knows that we lead hectic lives and sometimes sales can totally add stress to our lives just to save some cash.

JcPenney unveiled their 2/1/2012 price changes with some cute commercials and since they shared some on their YouTube channel, I thought I would share with you the one I like best:

By the way, my family is heading to our local JcPenney this month to test out the new prices JcPenney’s has to offer so be sure to follow my finds as well as other bloggers finds on Twitter with the hashtag #jcpfinds
