How to save money at Macy's

For financial flexibility, Macy's is offering a buy now, pay later option with Klarna. As they say, "See store for details." Contactless delivery and payment options have also expanded, with PayPal and Venmo now accepted.

If you're a Macy's regular, you may want to join the free loyalty program, Star Rewards. Perks vary by spending level, earning points ranging from 1%-5% of each rewards-eligible purchase dollar (excluding gift cards, services and fees). However, "Star Money" expires after 30 days. Shop often, shop fast?

Most reward levels require that purchases be made with a Macy's store card, but you'll earn cardholder-exclusive savings, designated bonus-points shopping days and an annual "birthday surprise" by using the card.

Last year, Macy's offered an extra 20% off coupon in its Black Friday sales ad. The additional discount was on select items, but it's worth looking for again this year.

Some of Macy's Black Friday discounts last year included:

  • A Fitbit Versa 2 for $129.99 ($70 savings).

  • An Instant Pot Duo Nova 8-quart for $69.99 ($80 savings).
