2. Become a Member of the Macy’s Star Rewards Card Program

Depending on the amount you spend in one year, you can be eligible for special Star Pass savings, and you can even earn Star Rewards Gift Certificates to spend on your favorite Macy’s items. As a Preferred Member spending up to $499 in one year, you will receive 3 Star Passes throughout the year.  Spend $500-$999 to become an Elite Member and receive 6 Star Passes a year and an additional 15% off coupon as a thank you for being a loyal Macy’s customer. Spending $1000 or more gets you Premier Elite status, earning you 12 Star Passes and two 15% off coupons per year as a thank you. Even more savings can be earned if you apply for a Macy’s American Express card, giving you all the same great benefits but with the added bonus of earning 2.5% to 4% back in Star Reward Certificates on purchases anywhere you use it, even outside of Macy’s.

4. Set Up Your Wedding Registry at Macy’s

Macy’s offers an amazing registry rewards program where you can get 5% back on the purchases your guests make, and 10% on any purchases you make with your Macy’s credit card. After your wedding, get your rewards in a gift card and then receive another 10%  back in purchases you make with the same gift card.

5. Know When to Shop

If you find yourself shopping on a Monday or Tuesday, you may want to hold out a couple of days and shop Wednesday through Saturday.  Generally those are the days Macy’s holds their sales.  But don’t just  look at what day it is—seasonal markdowns usually happen four to six weeks before the end of the season.
