What kind of deals to expect
Last year, Bloomingdale’s offered 25% off items in women’s, men’s, kids, home, shoes, handbags and more. You’ll also get 20% off nearly all designer fine jewelry, kitchen electrics, gadgets and cookware.
Everyone gets free shipping, no minimum purchase amount required. Last year, customers saw discounts on clothing brands including Alo Yoga, Laundry by Shelli Segal and Hugo Boss. There were also deals on accessories like LeSportSac.
Read the fine print for brands and collections that are excluded from the sale, though — there are quite a few. Just some of the biggest designers that won’t be marked down for the Friends and Family sale include:
- Alexander Wang
- Christian Dior
- Jimmy Choo
- Kate Spade New York
- Louis Vuitton
- Tom Ford sunglasses
- Under Armour
Ways to save even more
Keep these tips in mind to maximize your fashion and beauty savings:
- Become a Loyallist. It’s free to join Bloomingdale’s Loyallist rewards program, and you earn points on every purchase, plus freebies and other offers throughout the year.
- Snag online deals early. When shopping Friends and Family sales, snag hot items online before the deals hit stores.
- Shop the sale and clearance section. When there’s not a sale going on, scan the brand’s sale and clearance section for deals. This is a good way to get a discount on designers that are usually excluded from big sales events.
- Join Bloomingdale’s email list. Enter your email address on the Bloomingdale’s website to earn 10% off your first order. Note that this coupon comes with some exclusions and you might not be able to combine it with other offers.
- Shop with the app. Take 15% off when you download and shop via the Bloomingdale’s mobile app.
Earn up to 25% off select items several times a year during this high-end department store’s popular Friends and Family sales events. Sign up to become a Loyallist member for free to save even more.
