The Bloomingdales friends and family sale will officially begin Friday online. Shoppers can save 25% with the code FRIENDS, plus you can also receive a $25 reward card for every $100 you spend. Those looking for an in-store Bloomingdales experience can begin shopping using the discount on Tuesday.
In the past, the exclusions haven’t been too extensive. Designer collections, beauty and fragrance are never included in the promotion. Although the discount can’t be applied to beauty purchases there is usually a gift with purchase incentive.
Bloomingdales can be frustrating to shop. We’ve become a big fan of the “In-Store Pickup” service. Shop online and retrieve everything from the customer service department on the 3rd floor. Once you get there, you can try everything on and just take the items you like.
We love this gingham shirt dress ($88), this Aqua embroidered sweater ($128) and these Hudson jeans that lace all the way up the sides ($295). The discount can also be applied to sale items. These Gucci Mary Janes come to $280 from $700 and this Maje leather jacket will about $350.
The friends and family promotion runs through Monday, October 9. We suggest that you shop during this markdown. The next sale with similar discounts won’t be until Black Friday.
