1. Macy’s best beauty sale is the 10 Days of Glam event, and it happens twice a year.

Each year since 2019, Macy’s has held two 10 Days of Glam events. In 2021, the first beauty sale began on May 11, but in previous years it started as late as July 20. Expect the first 10 Days of Glam sale to launch in summer 2022.

The second sale is easier to predict. Since 2019, Macy’s has always held another 10 Days of Glam sale in October, and I see no reason why 2022 would be any different.

 

2. Get free shipping on your Macy’s 10 Days of Glam beauty products.

You don’t have to shop in store to enjoy the 10 Days of Glam sale. Macy’s has provided free shipping on beauty items included in the sale for the past three years. Just enter the promo code at checkout (since 2019, the code consistently has been GLAM10), and you’ll be good to go.

Remember that an item has to currently be on sale in order to qualify for free shipping. Although some products will be on sale for the entire event, Macy’s rotates new deals daily during 10 Days of Glam.

Once a product is removed from the sale price, it won’t qualify for free shipping.
