On Monday, J. Crew slashed prices across the site by 40%. For customers who checked out before noon, the discount was even higher, with an extra 10% off.

However, it seems that traffic driven by the deal has caused the site to crash.

Reports of J. Crews website being slow or down began at around noon ET. As of 12:55 p.m. ET, the site was still inaccessible to Business Insider writers.

Many shoppers are concerned that they will miss out on the major discount.

J. Crew announced on Twitter that it had extended the sale until 3 a.m. on Tuesday. Shoppers can use the code “SHOPFAST” to access the deal.
