Macy'sIt is always a good idea to check over a store’s coupon policy before you go shopping. Coupon policies are always subject to change. In general, stores change their coupon policy in an effort to prevent people from taking advantage of it in ways the store did not anticipate. Macy’s, however, changed its coupon policy in an effort to make things better for customers.

Macy’s will no longer accept coupons for clearance-priced items. At first glance, this does not sound very good for the consumer. People look for the items that are on clearance because they can get them for a lower price than usual. Using a coupon on a clearance item gives the customer an even better deal.

Macy’s is going to continue to accept coupons for it’s regular priced and reduced-price sale items. They are going to more deeply reduce the price of the clearance items. The purpose was to make things simpler for the customer.

It makes it easier for customers to see what price they will pay on a clearance item. There is no more need to “do the math” and figure out the clearance price minus what the coupon subtracts from it.

In addition, Macy’s is going to make it easier for consumers to locate the clearance items. In the past, Macy’s had several clearance racks located all over the store. Customers had to hunt for them, and ran the risk of missing some.

From now on, there will be two locations where customers can consistently find the clearance racks. One will be for men’s apparel, and it will be located in the men’s section. The other will be for women’s apparel, and it will be located in the women’s section. The purpose for this change is to encourage customers to buy the clearance items.

What do these changes mean for consumers? It means that you won’t have to bring coupons to Macy’s anymore (if all you want to do is shop the clearance items). It means that you can get clearance items for less money than you could in the past – no coupon required. It also means you will have an easier time finding the items that are on clearance.

One thing that may have influenced Macy’s to make these changes is social media. It has become very common for frustrated consumers to use their social media accounts to complain about problems they encountered while shopping. Making it easier to find the clearance items, and making those items cost less than before, should result in happy customers.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
