Quick Thoughts

These payouts aren’t historical highs for Macy’s, but they are higher than we have seen in recent months since the pandemic pushed many retailers off of portals for a time. Keep in mind that the payouts noted above would all stack nicely with current portal promos being run at each of those portals (see the post that Stephen updated early this morning with details on all of those promos). By stacking a good payout with a portal promo, you may be able to snag a pretty good return if you have something to buy from Macy’s at the moment.

Do note the exclusions as several brands are excluded and the terms note that purchases paid for with a gift card will not count. I’ve received payouts in items paid for with Macy’s gift cards before, but it’s been a while since I last ordered from Macy’s – so it is possible that it has changed.

The “Exclusions” or Items at Macy’s Stores that do not qualify for Sale is the reason why no one shops at Macy’s anymore.Macy’s used to send out coupons with 30% Discount,the problem was there was maybe one Rack of Clothes that had been there for 5 years and “Old Fashion”would be on Sale.Macy’s is a SCAM,Glad to see them go Bankrupt.
