You know summer is almost over when you start to worry about your children’s school essentials. And that’s not a bad thing. I’m sure I’m not alone when I say this, but I’m glad summer is coming to an end. While I love barbecues and sunlight, I hate sweat with a passion (and since no amount of air conditioning can help me when my body starts sweating, I can’t wait for fall to rescue me from the heat and humidity). That’s why I’m feeling kind of excited that the back-to-school shopping season is finally here. It’s a nice reminder that the hot summer days are numbered.
Did you know that the back-to-school season is one of the biggest in the retail calendar? In fact, it’s second only to the holiday season. This year the National Retail Federation expects families to spend an average of $600 on school supplies as well as laptops, electronics, and fashion. Additionally, retailers are projected to rake in some serious cash this month with their end-of-summer sales. If you consider yourself a Macy’s loyalist, you have many reasons to celebrate as Macy’s is offering the best deals for this season yet.
The countdown to September has begun, that’s why back-to-school sales are in full swing. I’m sure you can find great deals on school essentials at a big-box store near you. But before you head out for some serious shopping, I suggest you check out Macys.com and take advantage of its end-of-summer deals. Why? Because there’s a good chance you’ll make even bigger savings if you shop online.
Macy’s is giving out discounts of up to 40% off on kids’ apparel, shoes, backpacks, and lunchboxes and an additional 20% off if you use a Macy’s coupon code at checkout. The discounts apply to not only children’s school essentials but also juniors’ and young men’s, including dorm essentials, such as beddings and bath, furniture and decor, and kitchen and dining. Note that you can also take advantage of these discounts if you shop in-store.
Don’t forget to take your entire family to a Macy’s store near you when you go out shopping. In addition to back-to-school items, Macy’s is offering its best deals this season on your favorite styles. Macy’s Star Rewards cardholders know that August has been a special month for Macy’s shoppers because of its nonstop end-of-summer sales events. This week is going to be particularly big as shoppers get to enjoy up to 80% off on clearance and closeouts in men’s styles, women’s styles, dining and kitchen, home products, and the list can go on. Visit Macys.com to see for yourself.
Don’t have time to shop this week? Don’t worry, Macy’s back-to-school deals are here to stay, at least until the last week of August. That said, if you think you can’t squeeze in some time for some shopping with your family before the month ends, you might as well shop on your phone today. Macy’s has an app for iPhones and Android phones that lets you shop anywhere.
