Tips for Saving Money at Macys

Macy’s is an excellent place to shop.  They have a wide selection of items, including those for women, men and even the home (sometimes even in two stores in the mall).  They offer numerous ways to save money, as well, which can be very useful to someone in these challenging economic times.  The following are some tips for saving money at Macy’s.

Look for sales

Macy’s has a great deal of sales.  They usually have something on sale every time you visit.  The sales are often very substantial, saving you even 25% of the cost of the item.  It is often worth it to buy on these.  Also, sometimes they will do a pre-sale.  If a sale is coming up, they will sometimes allow you to buy the item at the sale price.  You leave the goods with them and then come back on the day that the sale starts to pick up your items.  This is a flexible way to receive the sale price even before it begins. 

Use coupons

Macy’s comes out with coupons quite regularly.  Sometimes they are in the newspaper while other times you will see them on the Internet.  This can save you a great deal of money as well.

Take advantage of extra money off with the credit card

A lot of times, Macy’s will give you extra money off if you use one of their credit cards.  This will vary at different times and according to the item.

Get on their e-mail list

Macy’s sends out e-mails with additional savings.  Sometimes they just list the amount of savings and other times they will actually include a coupon code that might be of use to you. 

Look for clearance

In addition to sales, Macy’s has clearance, which can really save you a lot of money.  Many items are marked down substantially. In addition to the racks where they give you a percentage off, they will often have racks that have items for $19.99 or even $9.99.  This can make the items very low in price and make something that wasn’t previously affordable for you now within reach.

Shop on the Internet

For some, it can be easier to save money on the Internet at Macy’s because you can search specifically for clearance items.  You can also usually combine some offers such as sales and coupons.  Also, if you get something and don’t like it you can just return it to a Macy’s store and not pay return shipping.  They often offer free shipping deals as well.

Macy’s is a great place to shop, and there are many ways to save money.  Try the above techniques to help you with this.
