On my recent trip to Macy’s I chatted with the sales clerk to find out her #1 and best Macy’s shopping tip for the biggest savings. Here is what she said.
Macy’s shopping tip
The sales clerk shared that when downloading the app you get instant flash sale alerts. Flash sales
- happen on the fly
- last a few hours only
- are scheduled for a certain slotted amount of time
- often correlate with seasonal needs (for example, like coats during winter)
- AND save up to 90% off
Macy’s shopping online or in-store at just the right time during flash sales, paired up with the Macy’s credit card and a Macy’s coupon equal big savings at Macy’s!
After downloading the app sign in or create a Macys account. Scroll to the bottom to the ‘person’ icon. Also known as your account. Scroll to “Communication Preferences” and choose “text”. Slide the on button for “Promos” to start getting alerts.
I downloaded the app and first got a nice welcome greeting. Then I started getting texts with exclusive sales.
In the above example you can use the promo code provided through the text to save up to 80%. Click on “details” to get the promotional code and read what the code applies to.
The sales clerk did point out to watch for the “FLASH SALE” words. This are the big sales we shoppers want that carry the deep discount.
Macy’s offers free shipping on orders of $49 or more, plus free returns for Non-Star Rewards Members.
Bronze and Silver Star Rewards Members get free shipping on orders $25 or more, plus free returns
Gold and Platinum Star Rewards Members have no minimum to spend for free shipping and get free returns.
Try it and see what savings you get. You can always uninstall it if you don’t like it.
Hope this helps you find extra savings at Macy’s. Get more shopping tips here!
