Macy’s Thanks For Sharing 2016

Macy's Exclusive Thanks For SharingMacy’s 2016 Thanks For Sharing (TFS) program ended on January 1, 2017.

Thanks For Sharing members will receive a Macy’s gift card worth 10% of all eligible purchases made with your enrolled Macy’s credit card account in February or March 2017.

There were three ways to enroll.

  • At your local Macy’s store
  • Online at macys.com/thanks
  • By phone at 1-888-933-6229

$10 of the $25 enrollment fee, up to a total of $15,000,000, were donated to non-profit organizations such as Make-A-Wish and the Go Red For Women.

In 2015 Macy’s donated the following amounts to these charities:

  • Make-A-Wish® $8,100,00
  • Go Red For Women® $3,400,000
  • Boys & Girls Clubs of America $1,200,000
  • Breast Cancer Research Foundation® $1,000,000
  • The RESPECT Campaign $1,000,000
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters® $300,000
The following points were featured for the program in 2016, but now are listed for archival purposes.

For Macy’s cardholders unfamiliar with Plenti, it automatically gives at least 1% or more rewards on all eligible purchases made with their Macy’s credit card.

15% Bonus Days

Get 15% rewards instead of 10% on September 17 and October 25. Mark them on your calendar to start your holiday shopping early.

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.

The 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 for a shopping spree.

It can be used at any Macy’s store and online at macys.com.

This card is NOT a coupon, so use it just like cash to buy any item of your choice at Macy’s.


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 Make-A-Wish Foundation®, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, Children’s Cancer Research Foundation®, The RESPECT! Campaign, an initiative of Futures Without Violence®,  Reading Is Fundamental®, and local Big Brothers Big Sisters and Boys & Girls Club in your select area.

Your gift card will be mailed during  February or March 2017 to the address on file for the account, so if you have moved notify Macy’s of your current address to make sure you will get the 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:

  • furniture
  • floor coverings
  • mattresses
  • box springs
  • fur salon
  • bridal salon
  • gift cards/certificates
  • electronics and associated accessories
  • special orders
  • watch/jewelry repair
  • sunglasses
  • maternity wear
  • 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
  • restaurants

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, 2016. Any prior eligible purchases returned before 1/6/2017 will have 10% of the money obtained from the return 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 $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 17, 2016, or in person at any Macy’s store before December 31, 2016, however you will not receive the gift card.
