NEW YORK—Bloomingdale’s is giving shoppers $15 in store credit (on b.Money cards) with almost any $100 purchase this year for Black Friday.

Lizzi Liu was at the 59th Street and Fifth Avenue Bloomingdale’s early Friday morning.

“They started earlier, like two hours than most shopping malls,”said Liu, standing in line to redeem her $15 on $100 promotion.

Liu arrived in New York City just yesterday on Thanksgiving to spend time with family. She is mostly for gifts, she said.

“They have a really good selection and you can find all brands here—like LV, or Gucci,” Liu said. “Almost all of them are gifts.”

Bloomingdale’s also has a variety of additional promotions on cashmere sweaters, coats, small leather goods (wallets, belts) denim, men’s clothing, and blenders.
