Find Macy’s Deals and Current Promo Codes

Use Dealspotr and the search bar for current Macy’s deals and promo codes. Dealspotr  has 54% more codes than any other coupon site so start there and find what you need quickly!

Friends and Family Sales

You can save as much as 25% off with the Friends and Family Sale, which is only offered a few times a year. The discount is available for most items, although there are a few restrictions. When the sale comes around, don’t miss out! In the past they have offered them in the spring and in the beginning of December, so keep a look out for them.

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.

Macy’s Coupons

You can often find $10 off $25 or $20 off $50 coupons on top of the sales. at Macy’s.  You can easily access these coupon codes for online shopping or coupons to print for in-store shopping on the Macy’s home page.

Always Check the Clearance Section

The online clearance section is an easy way to score great deals, especially toward the end of a season. You can also find clearance sections in the store, you may have to ask for the location in the various departments.

Save on Shipping

Buy online and pick up in-store for free shipping. Most of the year, you get free shipping on orders over $99. For beauty products, shipping is free, so if your order is under the $99 threshold, consider adding a beauty product to see if you can qualify for free shipping. Sometimes during major holidays, they will reduce the minimum purchase requirement for shipping, so be on the lookout. 

Join the Rewards Program

Macy’s is a partner is the free rewards program called Plenti. ThePlenti Card allows members to earn and use their points across various stores from gas stations like Exxon and Mobil, Rite-aid, AT&T, Hulu and more. With Macy’s, Plenti shoppers will earn points with every purchase and double points and other incentives on certain purchases too.
