|SackaNub||Calvin Klein sweaters were 50% off but ringing at 65% off. They had a bunch ringing at $24.99. All Ecko items were ringing at buy 1 get 1 free even on clearance. I got 2 Ecko t-shirts plus the CK sweater for $22 out the door with the coupon (82% savings off retail price) . Did this 3 times with different styles. With the coupon I could've grabbed 8 Ecko tees for $18 but the sizes were too big for remaining inventory.|

|hickory||Thank you so much to all of those who thought this was a scam and avoided Macy's this morning so that I could make out with $331 worth of clothes for my son for $87. Much appreciated!|

If you are smart, you print out multiple and take them in. The code on the coupon isnt one time use, the coupon itself is per transaction. Its technically one per customer if you bother to read the fine print, so technically its against the rules to do more but.....

I wonder why there are so many people crapping on the coupon, because in my experience, the Macys ODS are typically the best times to stock up on Macy's clothing. This coupon isn't going to work miracles and get you nice dress shirts for 5 dollars, but it does get you pretty good prices. Now I can't speak for the home goods section because I don't have much experience buying that during the one day sales, but over the last few months, I've spend a few hundred at Macys during the last 3 ODS on work clothes.
Here's my mini guide to buying frugally during the one day sales.
People saying it doesn't work on 95% of things are flat out exaggerating. It's more like doesn't work on 30-40% of the things. It's pretty easy to tell what it doesn't work on. Anything that's an EDV or a Morning special. They're clearly marked and if you can't read then don't blame Macys when you fail at the cash register.
The trick to maximizing savings with this coupon is to obviously buy things that are within 25-40 dollars. That'd make the actual % savings maximized.
For example, today I bought a nice thick sweater that was 24.99. Added a sock in the clearance section for 3 dollars and applied the coupon. It goes -9 on sweater and -1 on sock. If you're REALLY cheap you can return the sock later on, and essentially get a sweater for 16 bucks.
Some also say their prices overpriced and there are no deals to be had. But for example, it is pretty much the cheapest you can find a staple like Dockers D1 Khaki's for work. Usually online you'll see on the Dockers site their khakis for 30-35 dollars with discounts. At macys today it was 35, minus 10 coupon is 25 out the door. Over the last few months, the cheapest I've seen them aside from Macys ODS is with Kohl's at around 27-28, and you needed to buy 4. Similarly, their expensive and popular Alpha Khaki's line went to 45, down to 35 with the coupon during the last one day sale, which is pretty much as cheap as Alpha Khaki's get. For reference, they're about 55 dollars on Docker's site right now.
The best deals are finding their clearance racks that AREN'T morning specials. Today's ODS wasn't as great, as the clearance rack of dress shirts were MS. However, last month's ODS, I was able to find nice slim fitting dress shirts that discounted down to 10-17 dollars. You get two of those, or add on some accessory like socks or belt that you need, and use the coupon. You can get two dress shirts for around 10 bucks each. And these aren't cheap JCPenny/Ross boxy ugly dress shirts. They're decent fabric, slim cut, modern designs. My personal favorite that fit me best are their macy's brand Bar III shirts, but I also buy some others like Kenneth Cole, DKNY, CK, GB, etc.
So there you have it. It's not a magic super slick deal sale, but it's just about the best sale you can get for work clothes and other cheap 10-40 dollar purchases. It isn't great for big purchases like Suits/ heavy jackets, or nice shoes, where you're better off using flat % off coupons you get from macys rewards. But for small things, it's a nice sale. One woman in front of me who clearly knew how to score a slick deal bought hella ties for her whole office. You find them on clearance for 12-15, buy in multiples of 2, and you're basically getting good<10 dollar ties.
