As they said it was good while it lasted! Macy’s free shipping on any and all beauty purchases is no longer available and has been changed to free shipping with any $49 purchase. Sad sigh.
Macy’s has been really upping their game in the beauty department and offering many brilliant sales throughout the year on makeup, skincare, and fragrance as well as excellent deals throughout Black Friday and the Holiday season. For about two years now they have also offered free shipping on any beauty purchase big or small. They’ll never a direct contender for Ulta or Sephora but they were a source of excellent deals plus their free shipping did push a lot of people into indulging on their website.
Sadly, they have now done away with free shipping on beauty and it’s not longer and available option which in my opinion will kill some of their sales in this area. I know when Urban Decay would clearance certain items out a lot of people would run to Macy’s website to get them even though they were available on Ulta as well. The free shipping was much more tempting versus reaching Ulta’s threshold free shipping option.
Anyway, I’ll miss it. Sephora has also changed their Flash Shipping for Rouge as well. I do wonder if Nordstrom will start doing the same. From a marketing stand point sometimes you do have the one how some of these stores make any money when they are paying for packing materials as well as shipping. Particularly, when they are doing dumb things like sending multiple shipments or sending shipping just a sample in a box and the order in another!
Fare thee well Macy’s Free Shipping you’ll be missed.
