Macy’s Black Friday hours begin at 6PM on Thanksgiving, with the traditional doorbusters. The start time and the prices are valid both in stores and online. They will last through 1 PM on Black Friday. Saturday, November 28th from 7AM to 1PM will feature its own unique doorbusters, so make sure you note the times the deals you want are available. Additionally, Macy’s free shipping threshold will drop from $99.00 to $50.00. Macy’s rarely offers free shipping promotions, so this is more than just a note worthy deal. Another way to avoid shipping fees is to choose in-store pickup, which is available at certain locations. Remember that not all locations have the same inventory, so your milage may vary when it comes to doorbusters.
This year, simply using the Macy’s mobile app will make you a part of their “Macy’s Black Friday Walk In & Win” game, which gives you a chance to win up to $1,000,000 in prizes. Prizes include shopping sprees, home makeovers, and even trips to New York City. More information on this contest will be available here on November 20. Another great addition to the ad is Plenti Rewards. This free-to-join rewards program gets you a ton of points at several stores. More information on this program is available here.
The two coupons, similar to last year, for $10 off $25+ and $20 off $50+ on page 2 of this years ad are solid deals. They are good for both sale and clearance apparel as well as select home items. They do not work on doorbusters or deals of the day, however, so plan accordingly.
Remember that FatWallet shoppers can get up to 1.5% cash back when shopping at Macy’s online. May the odds be ever in your favor this Black Friday!
