Macy’s Mobile App – Black Friday Feature
New this year, an iOS-only Black Friday enhancement to Macy’s official mobile app will offer customers a digital tool to help plan their shopping strategy in advance. Beginning Nov. 15, Macy’s customers will be able to view Black Friday specials on their mobile device, create personal shopping lists they can edit and share with friends, and receive push notifications that will offer details on previously unadvertised specials. In addition, the new Black Friday feature on Macy’s mobile app will allow customers to browse Black Friday specials specific to each Macy’s, helping them navigate their local store by sending the department name and floor for each special by store location. This enhancement will make Black Friday more productive for Macy’s customers by allowing them to create a shopping strategy before setting foot in the store. The new Black Friday feature, created through a partnership with eBay Inc., will be available for iOS devices and can be used by downloading the Macy’s App at the Apple App store.
