Free Birthday Gift at Macy’s

  1. I am disappointed. I have been a strong Macy’s shopper thru thick and thin. Friday was my birthday and I went to the New York store and couldn’t use the birthday reward on anything I tried to buy. This is no way to treat a customer. I am looking for the items elsewhere now. What a bad move on their part – the coupon book says Happy Birthday to you but Macy’s gives nothing. All the other stores sent me a coupon that worked on everything – same amount too.

    They send you coupon get to register and can’t use it. Waste of my tine selecting out merchandise only to be told these do not apply

      Happy birthday, Brenda! It can be frustrating when your favorite brands and departments are excluded from the coupon. Unfortunately, it’s often standard practice for stores to exclude their premium brands from discount offers. It’s helpful to read the fine print on offers before you shop in order to better understand what discounts you’ll be eligible to receive. I hope that you’ve had an otherwise lovely birthday this year!

    I recently received a Birthday Pass – but, according to the exclusions, I can’t understand what I can use it for. What is it good for?

    • Alyce says:

      Happy birthday, Arlene! The Macy’s birthday gift excludes many designer brands and departments like cosmetics. You may have luck using your Macy’s birthday coupon on accessory items, essentials (i.e. socks), and seasonal decor.

    Can I use Macy’s Birthday Money for a $30.00 purchase I bought online? Also can I get the $10.00 Birthday Money off after I get 25% off of a Total of $30.00?

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Jeanine, please check the “fine print” on your birthday gift to figure out those details. The offer should be good for online purchases, but I’m not sure about how the Macy’s birthday gift stacks with other offers.

    Trying to use my birthday pass. Will not let me use with the item I am purchasing. Very frustrating.

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Sharon, The Macy’s birthday gift is nice but unfortunately, the discount is not available for all items. I hope that you are able to use the discount on some other great items from the store! Happy birthday!

    I’m having this same issue!

    • Alyce says:

      Happy birthday Khrishawna! Hopefully, Macy’s will update its program in the future to include more items, but in the meantime, I hope you can find something to use your Macy’s birthday gift on that you’ll love!

    what can I buy with coupon…EVERYTHING I want /…NOT accept coupon!!!!

    • Alyce says:

      Hi Patricia, That is so frustrating! There are a lot of top brands excluded from Macy’s coupons, and usually, the entire beauty department is excluded from their coupons too. You may have luck using your Macy’s birthday coupon on cute new accessories, but I understand that it’s not ideal to have so many conditions on the gift.

      Regardless of what happens with your birthday coupon, I hope you have a fantastic birthday!
