Macy's gives their discount to employees in an interesting way - each employee and family gets a credit account and a Macy's charge card. When you make purchases on your charge card, the 20% employee discount is taken off the card bill. This may not sound great, especially if you have an aversion to credit cards, but I love it. Why? Because Macy's gives cardholders extra discount passes, to the tune of 12-15 a year. So, that means if Macy's is having a sale, I get sale % off, savings pass % off that, and employee discount % off that. See? Awesome.
Macy's has some of my fave brands - Lucky, Ralph Lauren, Miss Me, True Religion, Free People. A month or three ago, I went into Macy's and noticed the Miss Me jeans were on sale. This hardly ever happens. I was stoked, especially because I (and my teammates) love to wear them to dance gigs cause they're fun and a bit flashy.
Well. These jeans were $109 originally. Then 40% off. Then my 20% WOW pass. Then hubby's 20% employee discount.
For $42?! HECK YES I'LL TAKE THEM!!
And then I found this pair. Originally $99.
And the back had stars and horseshoes! And I'm on a country dance team!!!
Really, though, I couldn't justify buying both. So I only walked away with the first pair.
Then a few weeks ago they were on sale again - the last few pairs from a select bunch of styles that they were obviously trying to get rid of. And they had one left in my size. Squee!!!
