New this year, customers can purchase savings passes using their smart phones, while receiving the same great Macy’s deal. Customers who choose to participate via their mobile devices will receive a $5 charge on their phone bill from their wireless provider. Customers can also shop online at macys.com, as passes purchased there on Aug. 24 will also benefit the March of Dimes.
