As we enter the fourth quarter of the year, expect to see a lot of friends and family sales. This is the time of year when retailers reward its customers. Most friends and family sales are available to the public. That is the case with the Bloomingdale’s event each year. Anyone can take part, including those who stumble upon the event. No code is required to take advantage of the event. There are Loyallists bonuses during the event, so they will get extra rewards for purchases during the event. The Friends and Family sale starts online today and in-store on October 1st. It runs through October 8th.
