Bloomingdales Friends and Family

Another Bloomingdales friends and family will begin Wednesday, November 10. It feels like just yesterday we were announcing the same promotion. In fact, it was just six weeks ago. Maybe we should just start calling a sale, a sale.

Well, the discount is 20% off and you can use the codes THANKS, HOLIDAY, or FBOOK at checkout. In addition, if you spend over $500 you will get a $100 gift card to use towards purchases of $250 or more. Seems kind of convoluted to us.

The sale runs through Sunday, November 14 and, as usual, cosmetics, designer and leased departments are excluded. New Yorkers, this means just about the entire fourth floor. We would hold out for a better discount, unless you need a specific item immediately. Black Friday is a mere two weeks away and we suspect bigger and better discounts will strike at any moment.

These mini-sales are starting to remind us of color war false alarms. What do you think?

I'm not a fan of bloomingdales. Remind me of macy's with a few high-end handbags sprinkled around. Anywho, neimans and saks are 30 off online and so is bg. The sale includes some designer. Hope barneys is next. Thanks for the post

Yes, Bloomies has become Macy's for sure. In Bridgewater NJ store it's obvious from the upper management staff to the dept managers
