Macy's Sales Calendar

If you're anything like us, your inbox is constantly full of sales announcements and promo codes for your favorite stores. But how do you know if you're really getting the best deal? Groupon Coupons helps take the guesswork out of shopping by giving you the skinny on upcoming Macy's sales—so you'll know if it's the best time to shop or if you should hold out for a better sale. If there's no sale, it doesn't mean you shouldn't shop, it just means you should shop smarter. Visit our Macy's coupon page for the best discounts.

Macy's Clearance Sale

Get up to 25%–70% off clearance items for a limited time at Macy's. Plus, check Macy's homepage for a promo code to save even more. 

Macy's Classic One-Day Sales

The sale Macy's is known for, and also a LIE—the One-Day Sale is almost always a two-day event. Historically, the sale falls on the third Saturday of the month with a preview day on Friday. That means you should shop Friday morning for the best selection.

Macy's Black Friday in July Sale

Huge savings aren't limited to the day after Thanksgiving anymore. Macy's and other retailers are dropping prices to all-time lows to get shoppers in the door. Expect to see sales across all departments, but the best savings will be on home goods, fine jewelry, and apparel. 

Macy's Semi-Annual Sales

We don't have the exact dates for these sales just yet, but they always happen in January and July. You can expect deals of 25%–75% off everything (plus an extra 10%–15% if you're shopping with a promo code).

Macy's Friends & Family Sale

Enjoy an automatic 30% off everything—designers, sale, and clearance—, 15% off beauty plus an EXTRA 10% or 25% off select departments. Use promo code FRIEND to get an extra 30% off regular-priced and select items already on sale! Almost everything in the store from fashion, shoes, and handbags to jewelry, furniture, and small appliances are included in this sales event. And shipping is free on all orders of $25 or more.

Macy's Price Match

Sure, this one takes a little more legwork, but once you get into the swing of it, you'll feel almost like you're cheating. If you find a cheaper price on something within 10 days of purchase, Macy's will give you the money you overpaid back.

It's honestly just that easy.

You can check out the official instructions for getting a price match here, or you can email Macy's directly through this link (we don't make any money of this link. We're just here to help!).


Any Major Holiday 

Macy's sells almost everything, which means there's a sale every holiday. President's Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day—if you don't have to go to work, you should spend the day shopping the sale at Macy's. Certain departments will have better sales depending on the season (for example, mattresses go on the biggest discounts during President's Day and Memorial Day sales).
