How was your thanksgiving? Mine was a success, and that’s saying a lot. I came to terms a long time ago with the fact that I’m not a very good cook, that’s why I feel proud when my gourmet dinners turn out okay. This Thanksgiving was special because, put simply, I didn’t have a game plan. I went grocery shopping late Wednesday night with a short but very Thanksgiving-y grocery list. Yesterday I got up at dawn and started my personal cooking challenge early. This time I didn’t watch Macy’s Parade and finished everything midday – taters, turkey, cornbread, pumpkin soup, Brussels sprouts, and cranberry sauce. My family was just as ecstatic as I was.
I wanted to update this blog yesterday but I was so elated I had to take time to bask in my monumental success. I mentioned in my late October post that Macy’s is going to have an early Thanksgiving sale, and as it turned out I was correct. If you’ve been visiting Macys.com lately, then you might have gone on a pre-Thanksgiving spree already. There’s been an ongoing sale since the beginning of the month – only the offerings and coupon codes are changing.
Last year Macy’s Black Friday sale started on Thanksgiving, this year on Thanksgiving Eve. If for some reason you waited until today for the doorbusters, there are still huge, hard-to-beat deals to be had. Macy’s is offering its doorbusters, or web busters if you’re shopping online, until tomorrow. It is reasonable to expect this week’s sales to bleed into next week because that has been the trend in the past few years. So now you can enjoy all the trappings of the Black Friday season without leaving the comfort of your home.
You can head over to Macys.com right now and start shopping or continue to read if you want to spend less time rummaging through Macy’s hundreds of deals. Let’s start with coats. Remember that huge coat sale last Halloween? I said in my last post that you wouldn’t find better deals on coats until next year. Well, I was wrong. Today you will find coats and winterwear in general with initial markdowns of 50%! That’s even better than the Halloween sale because the most discounted coat I could find at that time was less 40% – without using a coupon. If you don’t forget to add a Macy’s coupon code to your purchases today you’ll take an extra 20% off!
Macy’s Halloween sale was not only huge but, more importantly, opportune. There were tons of deals on glassware, cookware, and kitchen appliances. Chances are you made the necessary kitchen upgrades in preparation for Thanksgiving and took advantage of last month’s sale. But in case it slipped under your radar, today you have another chance to save big on kitchen-related items, such as dinnerwear, servewear, table linen, and kitchen electrics and gadgets.
It’s not only kitchen items that are getting big price cuts at Macy’s this season. The best deals are in the bedroom department, where you can take a whopping 70% plus an additional 10% off beddings, pillows, and mattress toppers. Be warned Black Friday specials for the bedroom are limited, so hurry over to Macys.com. I also suggest you visit the holiday lane and check out the great deals on holiday decor and ornaments!
