Macy’s is having their semi-annual Friends and Family sale starting Sunday, April 26th, 2015 and ending Monday, May 4th, 2015. Use the code FRIEND online.
The reason this sale is noteworthy (as opposed to all the other sales that Macy’s runs each week of the year) is that this sale has *far* fewer exclusions than what is typically discounted. Most everything in fashion, shoes/accessories and home goods is 25% off. Electrics, electronics and furniture will be 10% off. The main exclusions from this sale are the vendors who operate licensed “stores” within Macy’s, beauty/cosmetics and every day value items.
Typically, many brands are excluded from their coupons (e.g. Levi’s, NYDJ, 7 for all Mankind, Joe’s Jeans, Martha Stewart, etc.). The Friends and Family sale does not have these exclusions so shopping in the Impulse section is so much easier!
Saks is holding a Friends and Family sale both online and in stores through April 27. They are offering 30% off, with a long list of designer exclusions. Items that are eligible are marked “Friends & Family eligible”. Use code FRNFAM and FREESHIP at checkout.
If you’re still bummed about missing the Lilly Pulitzer/Target designer collaboration, consider using your 30% off on a full line Lilly dress. Obviously the price point is still vastly different, but the quality is better with the full line dresses. Dresses will be lined, zippers will pull smoother, and the material feels more luxurious.
In girls sizes, the Target dresses were $20. At Saks, after the 30% off, girls dresses start at $33.60 and go up from there. In womens sizes, the difference is a little larger. Target dresses were $30-$44 depending on the style. At Saks, after the 30% off, women’s dresses start at $110.
