Macy’s Million Dollar Makeover with $50 Giftcard Giveaway

My Mom’s been telling me that I need a makeover for a long time now. She’s not an expert, she just thinks she is because she watches all of those makeover shows. Now that I’ve lost a lot of weight she’s right, but only because nothing fits anymore. Makeovers are thought of mostly for clothing and homes but could apply to many things. Macy’s just launched a sweepstakes with the opportunity of a lifetime – a Macy’s Million Dollar Makeover. Here are the details.


8 Deserving contestants. 8 Makeovers. Help us decide who will win the makeover of a lifetime.

Clinton won’t just be transforming your wardrobe; he will help to transform your work, your home, your entire life. “Macy’s Million Dollar Makeover” will consist of a nationwide call for entries through January 31st, from which eight contestants will be selected for a Clinton Kelly makeover. America will help us decide which of the eight will win the makeover of a lifetime, worth $1 Million!

“Macy’s Million Dollar Makeover is my typical makeover on steroids,” said Clinton Kelly, style expert for Macy’s and co-host of TLC’s What Not to Wear. “The winner will not only get some quality time with me to update their look, but they will get a truly life-changing experience. From fashion to finances to fitness, they will undergo a complete life transformation.”

Entries may be submitted at from now through January 31, 2011. Entrants must “like” Macy’s on Facebook to access the contest application, and will be required to submit either a video or picture.

Following the nationwide entry period, eight contestants will be selected in early February and will undergo a makeover session with Clinton. Each contestant’s personal story and makeover will be filmed and posted to for an open voting period that begins in March. Two videos will be posted each week and the video with the most votes each week will proceed to the semi-finals in April. The top two videos will compete in a finals round – with the victor winning the million dollar makeover.

“Macy’s Million Dollar Makeover” with Clinton Kelly is open to legal residents of the United States who are 18 years of age or older.


ONE winner will receive a $50 Macy’s gift card.

  1. I need a makeover because I still dress like I did in college, but I probably won’t enter the Macy’s contest.

  2. I’m not entering, but as most other stay at home moms, the kids come first. Money gets tight but the kids still need shoes and jeans and plenty other stuff. I’d love to spend a little dough on myself for once!

  3. I’m not entering the Macy’s Million Dollar Makeover and I need a make-over because I don’t have any clothes that fit me well.

  4. Please enter me 🙂 I need a makeover because I need some new clothes for the season!

  5. I don’t have the guts to enter but I’d love to watch everyone else transform. I could use a makeover because I have definitely slipped into the “mom” mode and could use a little sprucing up- thanks!

  7. I entered the Giveaway and I need a makeover because I’m a caregiver and need a little TLC. I use to wear high heels and suits daily for work. I haven’t done that in over 5 yrs.

  8. I did not enter the Macy’s competition because I am sure others need it more than me. I want this Macy’s makeover because I am going back to school in April, 11 yrs after getting my last degree. That requires a mini makeover : )

  9. I am entering the million dollar makeover and I need one because I haven’t had one in over several years have been focused on raising the kids

  10. from your moms blog i learned that: Today’s petrochemical market, meaning refineries, chemical plants, drill ships, and FPSO vessel, must have state of the art, modern, up-to-date technology because of its explosionproof, corrosion protected needs. These are hazardous, severe service environments. Proven engineering with reliability, service, and design means life or death. That is why smart companies rely on explosion proof hvac systems for complete heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.

  12. I probably won’t enter, but my look could definitely use an update. I think there are still clothes in my closet from high school!

  13. I’m not entering the Macy’s Million Dollar Makeover, but I sure could use a makeover. I’m in a bit of a rut & would like a change.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. I didn’t enter Macy’s on facebook as I have no idea how to upload vide/pic. i do think I need a makeover as lately the only thing I wear (i.e. fit in) are a couple pairs of jeans with sweatshirts and my velour track suits!! i don’t even have trousers or any sweater tops.

  16. I’d love to use this to buy a winter jacket on clearance. It’s hard to find clothing that fits, as i’m so tall, but macy’s has great items

  17. No, I am not entering even though I am a walking, talking ‘Glamour Don’t’ and need a makeover!

  18. I haven’t entered, but I hope to. I need a makeover becuase most of my clothes don’t fit!

  19. I did enter the million dollar makeover. My life needs a total over haul in many ways! I was downsized from the Financial Industry and have had trouble finding work. Losing your job is a huge blow to your self esteem and I know that this makeover will go a long way to boosting my confidence, so I can ace my next interview and truly turn things around for myself emotionally and literally! I have also dropped a dress size recently and my old interview suits don’t fit well, so I would love a wardrobe makeover!

    I would have loved to be included in this blog hop, I would appreciate it if you could forward that along to the sponsor, hopefully they are reading all of your entries! 🙂

  20. I am not entering the sweepstakes, but I need a makeover because all I wear are t-shirts and jeans, lol!

  21. I did enter it, and I would love a makeover because I’ve gotten used to wearing sweats and throwing my hair up in a messy bun. My clothes are way outdated and I could go for a great new look!

  22. I am not entering the Macy’s makeover, but I’d like a mini-makeover- new outfits, makeup, jewelry, so $50 would go towards that.

  23. I am age 66 and have taken in two grandchildren since the sudden death of my daughter.
    I am so stressed and worried about finances.
    A giftcard would help me. A makeover could change my life!

  24. I probably won’t enter the Macy giveaway–I’m too shy to go on camera. But I do need a makeover–after graduating from grad school last May, I could use some help transitioning from student to working person!

  25. I probably wont be entering Macy’s contest. I could use a makeover because I haven’t been clothes shopping in over a year and I’ve been doing my hair the same for about three years.

  26. i didn’t enter macy’s contest, but i need a makeover because i’ve become the typical frumpy housewife (though i work full time)

  27. I need a makeover because I work hard and all of the extra money goes to living expenses, which doesn’t leave any left over for fun clothes and makeup.

    I don’t think I am entering the Million Dollar Makeover right now. Not up to the big challenge, but I would love to win a gift card!

  30. No I don’t think I will be entering.. after rainsing 4 kids and grandkids, I used to turn heads, now I am stuck in mom/gramma mode.. I need someone to show me what styles will work for me.

  31. I am entering the contest… I need a makeover because it is hard to do anything for yourself with two little ones!
