I wish more people knew that the best part about Macy's Friends & Family events is the "Pre-sell" for the 5 or so days preceeding the start of the sale.

Historically, there are more limited exclusions to the 25% F&F discount than the usual Macy's promos. Also, prices seem to jump a bit during the actual sale event. Prices can be much less on some things during the immediately preceeding sale period (that being now thru 4/23).

So they have this "Pre-sell" deal where you can go in store and shop now....

Qualifying purchases that you make now thru 4/23 can get the 25% off F&F discount instead of the current discount, if the current percent off is less than 25%.
So you get the 25% off before the prices "may" increase on 4/24.

What's the catch?
You leave what you buy there in the store, and go back to pick it up after the F&F event starts on 4/24.

This is really a great time to buy in certain departments like For the Home, where it is not common for promo discount promos to be more than 15%-20% off...outside of the $10 off $25 / $20 off $50 coupon promos.

Yep...this is "generally" best for the products with "sale" prices in the $80 + arena. Exceptions will be for lower sale priced items that are currently on sale for less than when the $10/$20 coupons are available, as well as products normally excluded with those coupons, but not excluded with F&F 25% off promo.

Better cutlery, dinnerware sets, flatware sets, upper end (for Macy's anyway) cookware open stock and sets, better bedding sets, etc. are the products which you will benefit most if you make your purchase now (if and only if it's currently on "sale" at a good price).

Hope this helps some who may not be aware that this Pre-sell is available and how it can save you a lot. Smilie

If I'm in the market to buy a new suit from Macy's, would it be better to just wait until tomorrow until the sale starts?

I think the promo codes have been at 25% off quite a lot of the time in men's dept. Is the suit you have in mind excluded from normal promo coupons available?

"Officially" the sale preview starts at 4:00 pm today in store only.

As far as price changes, up or down, here's the thing....
If it's $100 today, and you buy, then tomorrow it's $80, you can either return/rebuy, or they may just adjust price.

But if it's $100 today, and you wait to buy tomorrow, then the price increases to $120....you can't get the lower price.

They definitely jacked up the price of a suit I had been watching. After 25% coupon, its still more expensive than recently with lesser sales.

Men's dept. as well as children's have had massive discounting in recent weeks.
As far as sale prices during the F&F sale goes, unless you have been in a Macy's store since 4:00pm today or have seen the ad for the paper tomorrow, you don't know what the pricing is going to be during the sale. Which starts tomorrow.

That said, yes, prices tend to go up on some things.
The lack of massive in-store exclusions to this coupon is one thing that is good.

Macys [macys.com] has free shipping for orders $25 or more. Also 25% Off Friends and Family is going on right now with code FRIEND. This is the lowest free shipping threshold Macys has.
