6 Ways to Save Money at Macy’s

Macy’s is one of the most popular department stores in the United States. They sell pretty much everything, from men’s and women’s apparel to home appliances, from furniture to jewelry. And if you’re a big fan of shopping at Macy’s, then you should be aware of the many ways you can save before you go shopping. Here are 6 ways to save money at Macy’s:

One Day Sale Events

These events usually take place before major holidays like the 4th of July, Memorial Day and Labor Day. When they occur, you’ll find deep discounts on things like household items, handbags, shoes and clothing. Just keep an eye out for advertisements to take advantage of One Day sales when they roll around.

Clearance Sales

Macy’s is actually one of the department stores that has been known to mark down in-season items 4-6 weeks before the season ends. So shop the clearance section in the middle of a season to take advantage of low prices for relevant clothing and accessories.

Star Rewards Program

To join the Star Rewards program, you’ll have to sign up for a Macy’s store credit card (which you might not want to do). But if you do and use it wisely, then you can take advantage of great discount offers like $10-$25 discount certificates that you can use like cash throughout the year.


Macy’s usually offers multiple online coupon codes and printable coupons weekly. By doing a quick coupon search, you should be able to find coupons anywhere from 10-30% off your purchase. You can also find Macy’s coupons by searching for “Macy’s printable coupon” on Twitter.

Email Newsletter

When you sign up for Macy’s free email newsletter, you’ll be privy to deals and coupons sent right to your inbox on a weekly basis. And as an incentive for signing up for their newsletter, you’ll usually get sent a coupon or code for 15% off of a purchase.

Gift Registries

If you need to creating a wedding or gift registry, Macy’s is an excellent option. According to BeFrugal:

To take part in this (Star Rewards) program, you simply sign up for a Macy’s store credit card. As a cardholder you then receive up to 5% rewards when your friends and family buy YOU gifts from your Macy’s registry – some exclusions apply on certain items. About a month after your wedding, Macy’s will send you a Macy’s rewards card for the total amount you earned. That’s like getting cash back on items that you didn’t even pay for! Plus, after your wedding is over you will typically get exclusive offers for items in your registry that you did not receive.
