We discovered yesterday that if you go into Macy's and sign up for their Bridal Registry , you'll get a packet with lots of coupons in it. One of them is for 10% off furniture! Nearly every other coupon excludes furniture. There are loads of other coupons too. We also got two bottles of water and some chocolate.
As part of the bonus you'll also get 10% rebated back to you (in the form of a credit) all purchases you make at Macy's, for any reason, between the time you register and your wedding. One can double dip with the Thank You Rewards too (for a $25 sign-up fee). You also get 5% rebated back to you (in the form of a credit) all of purchase your guests make from your registry. Furniture is, unfortunately, excluded from these items.
Yesterday, we purchased the Nicholas Mission Recliner for $250.10+tax (sale price + 10% off coupon + $100 statement credit for new Macy's card). It's regular price is $669. That's over 62% off! Because we combined this with a new sofa we could take advantage of their 12mos same as cash offer.
Lastly, we found out that a household can open THREE Macy's cards. His, Hers, Theirs (i.e., two singles, one joint). This makes it easy to seperate and pay off the promotional purchases.
