Once a month, Macy’s announces a one-day sale that features discounts, deals, and savings galore that can help you find the cheapest price for an item both in-store and online.
While the date for the Macy’s One Day Sale for April 2018 hasn’t been announced, the March 2018 sale took place on Saturday, March 17th with previews being held the day before on March 16th.
What is Macy’s One Day Sale?
The New Yorker published an interesting article in 2017 that talked about the Macy’s One Day Sale, which has been going on for twenty-three years. Once a month, the mega-retailer offers flash deals and savings from fifty to eighty percent off (and that’s before coupons, which you can use during the sale as well to save even more).
When you head to your local Macy’s store to take advantage of the One Day Sale, you’ll see various items marked with signage such as Doorbusters, Specials, Super Buys, and Everyday Value. Coupons are typically only valid for purchases of sale and clearance apparel as well as certain Home Department items, but the discounts apply to most of the store.
When is Macy’s One Day Sale 2018?
The dates vary each month but typically fall around the middle of the month. The March 2018 One Day sale, for example, was on the 16th and 17th. That’s right, while the sale is advertised as “one day,” deals can typically be seen over the course of two days (the main day is Saturday with a preview on Friday).
The Macy’s One Day Sale March 2018 offered customers 25-70% off clearance items and free shipping at $25, with additional deals on home appliances. For example, the doorbuster deals saw people snagging appliances for 30% off plus an extra 15% off small appliances. Select dinnerware and glassware was also 50% off.
Online Shopping Macy’s One Day Sale
For those of you who like to take advantage of the benefits of online shopping, you’ll be delighted to learn that you can take advantage of the Macy’s One Day Sale savings from the comfort of your computer or smartphone as well.
One of the biggest benefits of the Macy’s One Day Sale for online shoppers is a lower free shipping threshold. Macy’s free shipping usually comes with a purchase of $49 or more but during the One Day Sale, you can access free shipping on orders of just $25.
Tips for the Most Savings
While you are allowed to use coupons on sale items, they’re typically restricted to only one coupon per transaction. This could vary, so it’s best to collect them and try to use them anyway. If you want to be able to use more coupons and gain access to savings, you can open a new Macy’s account during the sale to unlock even more benefits.
Macy’s usually holds a preview of the sale the day before the actual event. This is a good time to browse through the items you’ll want to purchase and calculate the savings. If you’re planning to combine coupons, use this preview day to check the restrictions that way you’ll be prepared when you go to checkout.
You won’t need special checkout codes to take advantage of these savings, you’ll just need to keep an eye out for the announcement each month and plan accordingly!
