le creuset outlet store sale

30% off all purchases over $100 on everything in the store from Nov 23 to Dec 9. Plus all orders over $100 ship for free. Just got the postcard in the mail today.

  1. I just placed an order--the sale is available now, despite the dates on the postcard. While the outlet stores don't have a website, the customer service via phone is great. I kinda knew what I wanted, they told me what colors were available, and shipping was free. Great way to get LC christmas presents without a hassle!

      does anyone know the web site or a place where I could order? Or a site that shows company store phone numbers? We don't have one in Alabama that I am aware of and I am looking for store somewhere else.

      1. re: ayoung

        hope this helps! Find one & get on their mailing list asap!

          Thanks for the link! What is interesting is, when I googled le creuset outlet, this thread was one of the options! I found the phone # for the one nearest me, and just called them and got on the mailing list. Grill pan, here I come!
          The Wrentham Outlets also has a Williams-Sonoma and Sur la table, so I'll be sure to check them out as well.

        2. re: ayoung

          Yes, you do indeed have one in AL--in fact, that's the one I ordered from. It's at the Tanger Outlet center in Foley. Here's the phone number: 251-943-7600. FLA has a couple, inlcuding one in Destin at 850-654-5900. The outlet stores don't have an online ordering option, so your best bet is to search online at other stores (Sur La Table, Williams Sonoma, or on the main LC website) for what you want, then call to see if they have it/what colors are available. I ordered via telephone on 11/16, box delivered by UPS on 11/20. With free shipping, no taxes since I'm outside AL, and a 30% discount, it was equivalent to getting one whole pot for free. You have to mention the Preferred Customer Holiday Mailer to get the discounts.

      2. Do you know of a site that has info on the stainless or their knives? I do not see it on their main site and would be interested in ordering some of those at these prices. Thanks!

            I could be wrong, but I think that Le Creuset's knives are made by Sabatier. That said, I haven't found anything online linking the two manufacturers.

            I know for a fact that the closest LC outlet to me in Leesburg, VA has those knives. Give them a call for more information - (703) 777-1747

            1. re: aburkavage

              Yes, their knives are made by Sabatier. I own four of them. The chef's knife is absolutely, perfectly balanced, with a beautiful rosewood tang. After thirty years of using the same knives for everything, I found these and just had to have them. Also, they are reasonably priced.

          2. Hungry Celeste, you are awesome! Many thanks to you, I just saved over $70 on a 6.75 qt oval dutch oven for my husband. I called the outlet store in Gilroy, CA, and they were so nice. Thanks again!

              You're welcome. I bought so much LC through the outlet store (thanks to those crazy-good sales a couple times a year), I had to buy a new free-standing wire rack for my kitchen to store it all. I roasted a 7lb chicken last night for the express purpose of using my newest LC round french oven. I also just tried Bartender's Friend on the dirty pots, and it works light-years better than anything else I've used.

              1. re: Hungry Celeste

                I called and they wouldn't give me the discount because I'm not on the mailing list. I lied and said somebody gave me the post card but she said if I wasn't already in the system she couldn't give me the discount. Pout......

                1. re: crawfish

                  Wow--they actually told you no? Did you call the Foley, AL store? Because the clerk told me that their POS computer system crashed and was down for more than a week, and she needed to make sure that my info hadn't been lost in their crash. If you're feeling persistent, you might try calling again with a computer-crash line of attack.

                  1. re: Hungry Celeste

                    from what I understand, you need to be on their mailing list. I got on their mailing list by simply calling one of the outlets and asking if I could get on their mailing list! Then I went to an outlet store and made a purchase and since I was in the system, I got the 30% off.

                    Now funny thing is, I decided to pick up a couple more pieces as my christmas gift to me (LOL) and I called one of the stores I recently purchased from over Thanksgiving and they will ship but the price is 15% of the subtotal! Ouch! So I called the gilroy store, they had both pieces I was looking for and they are offering the 30% pluss free shipping. But 2 of the stores I called tonight were charging the 15% shipping fee. So call around!!

                    1. re: warneral

                      The postcard sale offers free shipping on any purchase over $100.

            2. Right now, they've gone to 20% off over $100 with no postcard required. I don't remember if free shipping is part of the deal though.

              Guy at the store said the sale is on for a couple of weeks.

                Hmm...I think the individual employees have some latitude regarding the discounts offered. Though the 30% sale ended on Dec 9th, I placed (another) order by phone (it was a gift this time!) just yesterday, and the lovely salesman honored the 30% plus free shipping. (Methinks the computer system must list past sales.)

                1. re: Hungry Celeste

                  The LC computer knows all! I called a LC store in Alabama. She knew all about my NY & Maine purchases!!!

              2. Thanks sooo much for the tip!! I just called the NJ outlet and they gave me 30% for my phone order even though the sale ended last week!!! I am finally going to have the oval french oven I have been eying for a while!!!
