When it comes to indulgences, there’s little I love more than a glass of wine. There’s just something relaxing about enjoying a generous pour while I’m catching up with friends, cooking dinner, or folding laundry (don’t judge me — we all have a vice). But wine shipped to my doorstep? That just feels like luxury. In the past I’ve splurged on a specific winery’s wine club (lovely but too expensive) and also tried Winc (which is great), but I’ve always been a bit curious about Macy’s Wine Shop.
I feel like I am sent Macy’s Wine Shop vouchers all of the time. Sometimes with a Macy’s purchase, sometimes on a meal delivery kit order. Maybe someone caught me folding laundry and thought, “Get that lady a glass,” or perhaps the marketing team behind Macy’s Wine Shop is just that good. Either way, promotions always seem readily available (below you can find a 35% off promo just for signing up for emails).
So, I finally took the plunge and placed an order. I’ll get into everything I learned about Macy’s Wine Shop below, including how their prices stack up to similar wine delivery services.

You can either purchase individual bottles from Macy’s Wine Shop or join the Macy’s Wine Club.
Here’s what I like about Macy’s Wine Shop, you can peruse their selection of reds, whites, roses, and sparkling wine, then make a one-time purchase. There’s no special “member” pricing and no commitment.
However, if you are the relationship type, there’s also Macy’s Wine Club. Their wine club currently has a limited-time introductory offer of six wines for $49.99 (plus tax) with shipping included. You choose whether you’d like to sign up for a six-pack of red, white, or a combo of red and whites wines. This breaks down to $8.33/bottle, which is a pretty sweet price for 750 ml of vino (about five standard glasses).
Keep in mind that after your initial introductory offer with Macy’s Wine Club, your membership switches to regular pricing. This means that approximately every 12 weeks (or three months), you will receive 12 bottles of wine at a cost of $159 (plus tax) at the time the order ships. That comes out to approximately $13.25/bottle. Not bad at all, but it ain’t no $8.33.

Macy’s Wine Shop individual wines range in price from approximately $11 – $26.
From what I’ve seen, the wines you’ll find in this shop range in price from $11 – $26. Typically the rose and white wines are a bit cheaper than reds, but they really do have a nice selection of price points across all varietals.
Comparing these prices to Winc, whose non-member pricing ranges from $15 – $33 (or $13 – $28 for members), Macy’s Wine Shop is about 15% cheaper. Although with Winc you only have to buy four bottles to get free shipping, whereas you need to buy six through Macy’s to score the free ship.
As I’m writing they have 118 different types of white wine on the site, 181 reds, 28 different bottles of rose, and six varieties of sparkling wine (two of which are canned 4-packs). That’s a lot to choose from!
I will say the one downside to Macy’s Wine Shop that I can see is there are no customer reviews available. Wine is subjective, sure, but I do like to hear what other people have to say before I order anything online.
No, you can’t find Macy’s Wine Shop wines in an actual Macy’s store.
Unfortunately there aren’t any wine shops located within brick-and-mortar Macy’s locations yet. Though it would be really fun to buy wine, clothes, and housewares in one place (guess we’ll have to stick to Costco for that).
They regularly run generous promotions, like 40% off site-wide.
Here’s the thing: Knowing what I know now, I would wait for any of their stellar promotions to order from Macy’s Wine Shop. Fortunately, when I placed my order there was a Mother’s Day promo happening. They offered 40% off site-wide, plus a magnum of Prosecco with a 12-bottle purchase. Naturally, I went for the W and bought 12 bottles. I wanted that free bubbly. They had 40% off all wines again on Memorial Day.
Even though I bought what felt like an absurd amount of wine, my total cost came out to $141.50 for 13 bottles (14 if you wanna count the free magnum of Prosecco twice since it’s double a regular bottle). It comes out to about $10.89 per bottle. That beats the $13.25/bottle you get with regular Macy’s Wine Club shipments.
Get free shipping with an order of six or more bottles.
As I mentioned earlier, you need to buy six or more bottles to get free shipping from Macy’s Wine Shop. So if you aren’t interested in purchasing that much, your best bet is to stick to a local wine shop or Trader Joe’s (which really does have an impressive, affordable selection).
However if you’re hosting a party or the holidays, a shipment of at least six bottles could be just what you need.
And I will say, shipping is fast. At least in my experience. My order shipped the day after it was placed, and arrived within three days.
Unfortunately, there are some states Macy’s cannot deliver wine to, including: Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Kentucky, Mississippi, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Utah.
You must order at least three bottles for them to ship to you at all.
If you’re willing to cough up a shipping cost to order les than six bottles from Macy’s Wine Shop — you do you! Just know that there is a three bottle minimum for them to create a shipment for you at all. And the flat shipping rate for three to five bottles of wine is $14.95, plus a $2.95 processing fee. This brings your shipping charge to a grand total of $17.90.
Someone age 21+ must sign for the wine delivery.
You’re gonna have to hand over ID to show you’re of age when your wine arrives by FedEx. If you’re worried no one will be home to accept the package and show proof of age, Macy’s Wine Shop will ship it to your FedEx Hold At location of choice. They will hold your package for five days, so you have a bit of wiggle room to pick it up. Again, don’t forget your ID.
Expect coupon vouchers with your Macy’s Wine Shop order.
With my first order, I received three coupons that I was pretty excited about. Here’s what arrived:
- 35% off your next Macy’s Wine Shop order
- $50 off your next purchase of $150 or more
- Buy More, Save More: 6 bottles, 12 each; 12 bottles, $11 each; 15 bottles, $10 each
- Get 12 Bottles for $12 each, plus a bottle-top wine aerator ($15 value)
Now each of these has an expiration date, so they aren’t good forever, obviously. But it’s a nice incentive to order from them again.
You cannot stack Macy’s Wine Shop coupons with promotional events.
Unfortunately, you can’t stack the coupons you get from Macy’s with other promotional offers. For example, I could not take that 35% off coupon and stack it on top of the $50 off your next purchase of $150+. If that changes, I’ll let you know. But for now you get what you get and you don’t get upset.
Whether the Macy’s Wine Club is worth it depends on your personal preferences.
Personally, I prefer choosing my own wines. But if you like surprises, then by all means, go for it. It’s also just fun to have wine arrive at your door every 12 weeks (they do an additional shipment in the summer and in winter). It’s a total of six shipments per year. But at $13.25 a bottle for club shipments, it feels like you could do better buying what you like individually during one of the Macy’s Wine Shop promotional events. Or even perhaps by using one of the coupons I mentioned.
What’s nice about Macy’s Wine Club is that you do have the ability to skip a shipment or even cancel at any time. Just contact Customer Support at (855) 966-2224. Or, if you’d rather use your computing machine, log into your account and changing your club preferences there.
Returns aren’t spelled out very clearly.
So you get your wine shipment and there are some issues. It happens. Macy’s Wine Shop’s return policy isn’t spelled out super clearly on their website. However, they do encourage you to contact them if something is off with your latest delivery. You can either email them at firstname.lastname@example.org or call their Customer Service Center at (855) 966-2224. But time is of the essence so don’t dilly dally if you’re unhappy with the wine you received
Additionally, if your shipment is damaged, give them a holler right away. Seriously, they specifically state they have to hear from you within 60 days of the expected delivery date.
