If you work for Macy's or Bloomingaldes or any other Federated Department Store, you receive your employee discount at ALL FDS stores. You must use their credit card to get the discount. Apparently everything is included in this discount, even cosmetics. You are charged the full price at the time of the transaction, and you get the discount off your monthly bill statement. Does anyone know if this discount applies for designer labels like Marc Jacobs, Fendi, and Gucci? Also, would you receive this discount on LV from the 59th & Lex store in Manhattan? I know LV is never sold for a sale price, however this is not really a sale...you pay full price, and it is FDS who gives you a reimbursement of sorts. I have no idea if this is true, but a friend of mine works for Bloomies and said one her colleagues got her employee discount on LV from the Manhattan store. I don't work at an FDS, but I might consider working retail as the employee discount would certainly be a nice plus for handbag freak like myself.
