$10 of the one-time $25 enrollment fee, up to a total of $15,000,000, will be donated to non-profit organizations such as Make-A-Wish and the Go Red For Women.
10% rewards on almost all purchases made with an eligible Macy’s credit card from the enrollment date until Dec. 31, 2018, in the form of a Macy’s gift card.
15% Bonus Days
On select bonus days enrolled Macy’s shoppers receive 15% rewards instead of the standard 10%. When the dates become available mark them on your calendar to boost your gift card’s value.
There is no limit on how much the gift card is worth: some people have earned Thanks For Sharing gift cards worth $400 or more.
A TFS gift card has no expiration date.
The $25 enrollment fee is a one-time charge that must be made with a Macy’s credit card.
You can give the card to loved one as gift card for their own shopping spree.
It can be used for purchases at any Macy’s store or online at macys.com.
This card is NOT a coupon, so use it just like cash to buy any item of your choice at a Macy’s store or online.
The first $3.4 million of the donation goes to the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women® movement. The balance, up to an additional $11.6 million, will be donated to the following organizations.
- The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation
- The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®
- March of Dimes
- Reading Is Fundamental®
Your gift card will be mailed in February or March 2019 to the address on file for the account. If you move notify Macy’s of your new mailing address to make sure you get the TFS card.
The Thanks For Sharing Program has some exclusions for items charged on the Macy’s credit card, although it does give a 10% rebate on EveryDay Value items which normally do not accept any Macy’s coupons.
The exclusions are mostly large-ticket items, services and some licensed departments:
- backstage items
- floor coverings
- box springs
- fur salon
- bridal salon
- gift cards/certificates
- electronics and associated accessories
- special orders
- watch/jewelry repair
- maternity wear
- athletic shoes for him, her and kids
- Apple products
- Tag Heuer
- custom decorating
- carpet cleaning
- service and delivery fees
- gift wrap
- trunk show merchandise
- purchases from licensed departments
- bill inserts
You cannot redeem the Thanks For Sharing gift card for cash or use it as a payment or credit on your Macy’s credit card account.
The value of the rewards card applies to net purchases from enrollment until Dec. 31, 2018. Any prior eligible purchases returned on or before 1/7/2019 will have their share of the TFS purchase subtracted from the reward’s card final value.
For example, if you bought a pair of jeans for $100 and then exchange them for a pair of jeans costing $200, your Thanks For Sharing gift card will be worth $10 ($20 – $10), not $20 (10% of your original $200 purchase).
If you want you can withdraw from the program and request a refund of the enrollment fee by calling 888-933-6229, before December 15, 2018, or in person at any Macy’s store before December 31, 2018. Upon cancellation you will not receive the gift card.
