I’ve been following and shopping the Macy’s One Day Sale for over a decade. Doing so, I’ve learned a thing or two about the Macys One Day Sale Schedule. While I can’t predict every time the Macy’s One Day Sale will happen each month, I can show you the sale trends and patterns…

Macys One Day Sale Schedule 2020

I’ve been compiling all the past Macys One Day Sale dates for the past six years. Why? To help you see a pattern and predict future Macy’s One Day Sales.

Typically, the Macys One Day Sale happens on the third weekend of the month. The actual One Day Sale takes place on a Saturday and the “Preview Day” is on Friday. In actuality, there is no difference between the Preview Day and One Day Sale.

Multiple Macy’s One Day Sale Date Variations

Occasionally, we’ll see the Macys One Day schedule vary. There are two ways this has happened in the past:

  1. Macy’s One Day Sales happen more than once a month: typically during a holiday month.
  2. Macy’s One Day Sale happens mid-week: One Day Sale on Wednesday with Preview Day on Tuesday.

Mulitple One Day Sales in one month usually happen every December; I’ve even seen three Macy’s One Day Sales occur in December. I’ve also witnessed multiple Macys ODS in January.

The midweek Macys One Day Sales typically happen either in November or in the summer. As such, I’ve yet to figure out why Macy’s moves them around like this.

So let’s break down the history of the Macys One Day sale schedule…

Macys One Day Sale Schedule 2014:

There were THREE Macys One Day Sales in December 2014:

  • December 9-10, 19-20, & 26, 2014

* The November 2014 Macys One Day Sale was Wednesday, November 19, 2014, with a preview day on Tuesday, November 18, 2014.

* The October 2014 Macy’s One Day Sale was SATURDAY, October 18, 2014 – with a preview day on Friday, October 17, 2014.

The Macys One Day Sale before that TOTALLY caught me off guard because it came on the heels of Labor Day. Other than that, the Macys One Day Sales have been fairly consistent:

  • September 6, with a  preview day on Friday, September 5, 2014.
  • August 16, 2014, with a preview day on Friday, August 15, 2014.
  • July 12, with a preview day on Friday, July 11.
  • June 14, 2014 with a preview day on Friday, June 13, 2014.

Consequently, you can see that several patterns emerge from studying the Macys One Day Sale schedule over the years. However, there is one change in the Macy’s sale schedule this year that could throw this cadence off…

Macy’s 48 Hour Sale

In 2018, Macy’s started renaming some of their sales, including their One Day Sale. For instance, there were several months in 2018 without a One Day Sale. However, we did see a Macy’s 48 Hour Sale during that period.

Has Macy’s finally realized that the One Day Sale is, in fact, a 48-hour sale and therefore they’ve decided to rename it? Only time will tell. But what I do know is that you can find similar deals during the 48-hour sale as you can during Macy’s One Day Sale.

Macys 48 hour sale 2018

The other major money-saving event to pay attention to is the Macy’s Friends & Family Sale. Because these Macy’s sales happen much less frequently (we’re talking twice a year), the savings are multiplied and you save on designers and items that rarely go on sale (like fragrance and beauty).

So there you have it: if you want to maximize your Macy’s savings, look to shop on the second or third weekend of each month. And don’t forget to check back here each week to uncover this weekend’s Macy’s sale!
