How to Save on Everything Back to School at Macy's

Back to School Macys Deals

Back to School period in the middle of the summer is one of the biggest shopping days with kids getting a lot of stuff. All that stuff, starting with new clothes and ending with glue, does not have to cost an arm and a leg. It often does though if you don’t watch your budget and are not sure how to get the best deals. With those shopping sprees right around the corner we would like to show you how to get everything you need at Macy’s and save in the process:


  • How to earn and redeem Macy’s Money?

You might be more familiar with Kohl’s Cash, but Macy’s Money also works the same way – you will get $10 for every $50 spent to be used for later. Unlike Kohl’s, Macy’s doesn’t offer this all the time, but during select sales events only. Macy’s Money can be used on all brands online and in-store. Always check the date because those rewards expire fast and are valid on certain dates only.
