10% Rewards Program: enroll in the Macy’s Thanks For Sharing (TFS) 2014 program on your Macy’s credit card and receive a Macy’s gift card for eligible purchases made with your Macy’s credit card from Sept. 2, 2014 until Dec. 31, 2014.
For every $10 a Macy’s customer buys with their Macy’s credit card on most items, they will receive a $1 rebate in the form of a Macy’s Thanks For Sharing Gift Card.
For example, $500 of Macy’s net purchases using their Macy’s credit card with the Thanks For Sharing feature, from Sept. 2, 2014 until Dec. 31, 2014 will earn the shopper a $50 Valentine’s Day present to spend on at any item at Macy’s. You can even give the card to loved one for a shopping spree!
There is no limit on how much the rewards card can be worth: some people have earned Thanks For Sharing Gift Cards worth $400 or more.
Enrollment for 2014 offer begins September 2, 2014 and ends December 31, 2014.
In the Thanks For Sharing Program, Macy’s makes a $10 donation from a one-time $25 enrollment fee, up to a total of $15,000,000, to various non-profit organizations.
The first $3 million goes to the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement. The balance, up to an additional $12 million, will be donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation®, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® and other non-profits, including local boys and girls club in your select areas.
Since 2002 Macy’s Thanks For Sharing Program has donated more than $115 million for these worthy causes.
During this season the enrolled cardholder will receive a Thanks for Sharing Gift Card, for use at any Macy’s store and online at macys.com, sometime in Feb. 2015.
This card is NOT a coupon, but is used just like cash to buy any item of your choice at Macy’s.
The Thanks For Sharing Program has some exclusions to earn the 10% rebate, NO expiration date or limit on the amount you will have on the gift card.
However you cannot redeem it for cash or use it as a payment or credit on your Macy’s credit card account.
For a low one-time investment of $25 your Macy’s credit card becomes a 10% rewards card, which is more generous than other credit cards.
In addition your contribution assures organizations such as Make-A-Wish survive, because Macy’s is one of their top supporters.
The exclusions on the TFS program are mostly large-ticket items, services and some licensed departments such as:
- floor coverings
- box springs
- fur salon
- bridal salon
- gift cards/certificates
- electronics and associated accessories
- special orders
- watch/jewelry repair
- sunglasses, maternity
- athletic shoes for him, her and kids
- Tag Heuer
- custom decorating
- carpet cleaning
- service and delivery fees
- gift wrap
- purchases from licensed departments
- bill inserts
Make a note that the value of the rewards card is for net purchases until Dec. 31, 2014. Eligible items bought before 9/2/2014 and then returned before 1/3/2015 will have 10% of the money obtained from the return subtracted from the reward’s card final value.
For example, if you buy a pair of jeans for $100 before 9/2/2014, then exchange them for a pair of jeans costing $200 after 9/2/2014, your Thanks For Sharing gift card will be worth $10 ($20 – $10), not $20 (10% of your $200 purchase) because 10% of any prior purchase reduces the amount of the Thanks For Sharing rewards card.
