Last month, I won a $25 Macy’s gift card at the Show Me The Blog conference in St. Louis. I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to maximize the value of the gift card. So, I’ve been scouting sales in Macy’s.
On Monday, I stumbled into Macy’s, and the store was preparing for its One Day Sale, which is officially today. Most of the sale items, however, had already been marked down in the system on the day I was in the store.
I picked up the Rachel Roy Isadora dress priced at $119, but when I scanned it at a price machine, it was $37.50! Say what? I used my $25 gift card on that dress and spent an additional $12.50 plus tax to take it home.
What I didn’t know was if I had waited one day, I could’ve saved an additional $10 with this Macy’s coupon for $10 off a $25 or more sale purchase. If you’ve been watching for sales at Macy’s, this is the time to move! Be sure to take the coupon with you.

Looking Back, Looking Forward
Today is also Wednesday, and hence time for Looking Back, Looking Forward. So, let’s look forward at a few alternative looks I envisioned when deciding to purchase the dress. I plan to wear the dress casually, but I like that with a few changes, it can be made work-ready.
Planning to check out the sale? Already checked out the sale? What are you shopping for?
