Macy's Shopping Tips To Save You Money

Macy's is a big department store and here's a little help to get you the best deals for your Macy's purchases online Being the webmaster of Centsible shopping site, its my job to stay on top of Macy's promos. This lens offers a sampling of advice on how to shop online at Macy's while spending less money. It also highlights items currently promoted at Macys.

The individual items here link to Macys's storefront at Amazon.com. Sometimes you'll get a better deal at Macys: sometimes the better offer is through Amazon. I'll be sure to let you know where you'll get more bang for your buck.

If you shop at Macy's, be sure to favorite this lens and receive squidcasts when it gets updated. I like to think my reviews are better than a Macy's sales flyer itself. The offers are arranged to make sense. I let you know if the offer is really hot (or not) and also when to make the purchase for less money at Amazon (if applicable). Finally, I try the offers out myself and alert you to any details that might not be obvious at first.

Types of Macy's Promos

How you can find a deal online at Macys.

One of the best ways to save money by shopping online at macys.com is to register at their site and sign up to receive Macys emails. You will often be given advance notice of sales, special coupon codes and exclusive discounts. Just check your emails.

Macys also offers the typical online coupon code savings. Just enter this code during the special box for 'promo code's during the checkout process and receive free shipping, a percentage off your order total, free gifts or more depending on the promo code.

Macys holds "Buy More, Save More" events, where you get a free gift, a discounted rate or free shipping when your purchases from a certain brand or in a certain department reach a minimum amount. Often Macy's Online will offer free gifts with your purchases that reach minimum amounts (these offers change frequently). Sometimes you will need an actual promo code to redeem your free shipping offer, other times it will automatically be applied to your qualifying order during the checkout process.

Macy's has a relatively liberal exchange policy. You can return merchandise purchased online at a retail store location and avoid paying the return shipping. In all cases, however, the initial amount spent on shipping & handling will not be reimbursed to you when returning your item. Some products, such as food, cannot be returned. Be sure to read the details of Macys return policy in order to be a fully educated Macy's shopper. Centsible.net makes a point to highlight its stores shipping and returns policies as these are important (yet often overlooked) aspects of getting your money's worth when shopping online. Check us out for the full scoop on Macy's return policy (summarized, of course). If you want all of the details, there's no better place to go than macys.com itself in the "Customer Service" section!

Here's a few point to note about Macy's returns..

  • You cannot return an area rug purchased at Macy's by yourself - phone customer service for this.
  • Food and Gourmet Items may not be exchanged.
  • Jewelry and Window Treatments both must be returned by mail.
  • Purchases from Macy's retail locations cannot be returned by mail.

Finally, if your questions still aren't answered regarding Macy's Returns Policy, feel free to send their customer service department an email. I've done it many times and they always respond with a good answer - often within 24 hours!

You can shop at Macys online not only by visiting macys.com, but also by shopping online through Amazon's Macy's Storefront.

We tested this option to see if anything differed between shopping at Macys.com and shopping Macy's through Amazon. The item we used to test it was Kate Spade's "Morago" flute (stemware). The price on both sites was $30 for this item. The chart of shipping charges appeared identical ($5.99 to $24.99 standard shipping). Shopping Macy's through Amazon contains the same delivery restrictions (only available for US addresses, US Protectorates and Territories, APO/FPO addresses. The only difference we saw was that free bonus gifts were offered if shopping through macys.com direct. These were not offered with an identical shopping cart on an identical date at Macy's storefront on Amazon.

October 16, 2008 - While pricing sale items between macys.com actual site and similar items on Macy's Amazon storefront, we noticed that items on sale at Macys were retailing for nearly twice the price at Amazon.com. We therefore surmise that sale prices also don't flow between macys.com and Macy's storefront at amazon.com.

      BFF and I are ALL about the Macy's. Ladies, don't be afraid to call another store for an item that you really want. It works lots of the time. Also, plan to visit more than one store during a big sale. I lean heavily on BFF for picking which locations we visit. She's a shopping machine.
