I made a promise to myself that I’d share the joy of saving with Macy’s coupons through this blog. This post is about how to save without using any (the title really gives it away 😉 ). Last week I blogged about why your Macy’s Star Rewards card is your ticket to ultimate savings. By simply using it any time you shop in-store and online, you save – and earn rewards. Today let me show you how to maximize your opportunities to save using your Macy’s credit card.
(1) Add your credit card to your online account.
Once you receive your credit card in the mail, link it to your Macy’s account to have your savings offers automatically added by the system. Sign in to your account, click on “My Profile,” and go to the “Add your Macy’s Card to your Profile” section. Note that you’re going to need your account number as well as the last four digits of your Social Security Number. If you don’t have an online account yet, create one here by all means. It’s free. More importantly, it gives you access to even more offers.
(2) Sign up for marketing mail.
You don’t want to opt out of receiving marketing mail, because if you do, you’ll forfeit all of your savings offers – including even your Star Passes! Resubscribe on Macys.com if you think you have opted out by accident. (After all, Star Passes are not your ordinary coupons. They are exclusive savings offers sent out to cardholders at least three times a year. Each pass has a single-use code that you can apply before you check out, and most passes can be used on any date within the offer period. Don’t miss those mailings if you want to maximize your savings.)
(3) Activate My Wallet on Macys.com.
Thankfully, keeping track of all the exclusive offers you receive from Macy’s is now much easier than ever. All you need to do is visit the “My Wallet” section on your online account and follow the instructions for activation – don’t worry, it’s free. My Wallet stores all your Star Passes, coupons, deals, promotions, and other savings offers in one place, so you could conveniently use any of them when you shop online or in-store. That means you don’t need to have your Macy’s coupon codes with you at checkout.
(4) Save offers on any device.
After you have your My Wallet activated, download the Macy’s app from iTunes or Google Play to your iPhone, iPad, or Android devices (it’s one of the apps I can’t live without). That way, you can update your account information, pay your bill, create your wish list, and see store events on all your devices. What I love about the Macy’s app is the fact that it lets you receive and save offers on the go. Here’s how. Just open the app, find the offer, and click on “add to wallet” to save it to My Wallet (see above). The next time you see a can’t-miss offer from Macy’s, you know how to save it on your phone or tablet.
(5) Shop with your Star Rewards Card.
Now you’re ready to go shopping – and saving – using your Macy’s credit card! 🙂 When you shop online, My Wallet will give you a list of saved offers that are applicable to your purchases so you wouldn’t have to sort through them yourself (see above). And when you shop at your local Macy’s store, you’ll get the list of applicable offers after you swipe your card.
