PSA: Sale Summary

Nordstrom Beauty Sale & other things

Word on the street (okay, on the Internet. On their site) is that Nordstrom is having a sale on select beauty products. Though I don’t believe I’ve tried a single thing that is on sale there, I enjoy helping others save money on things they’d like. Check it out for 10% off some mid- and high-end products, if you’re into that. Ebates Cash Back: 6% (more info below)

Ulta is currently doing all sorts of things, as per usual. They’re currently offering select CHI irons in some really cute patterns (and some not-so-cute) for $74.95, as well as B2G1 free prestige hair care, and 40% off Maybelline, Revlon, Almay, Physician’s Fomula, and the recently reappeared Jane. And the handy dandy ever-present $3.50 off $10 with Ulta Promo Code 202786. Ebates Cash Back: 8%

Sephora’s 15% off for all (that went over well, didn’t it, VIB/VIBRs?) is over already, but they are running a few nice sample sets – a UD shadow sampler, a trio of Benefit minis, and a deluxe sample of a tanning mousse I haven’t heard of. They’re still acting like their sale is a big deal but with the exception of the sexiest falsies ever made (now unavailable; link is via the Wayback Machine), there’s nothing particularly noteworthy in their sale section. Ebates Cash Back: 4%

Macy’s has a 7-piece Clinique GWP when you spend $27 on Clinique. Although I wouldn’t go out of my way for it, if you were planning on buying something anyway (a Cheek Pop, perhaps? Black Honey? Dramatically Different?), go for it while you can get freebies! eBates Cash Back: 9%

That was this evening’s Sale Summary…but wait, there’s more!

So, again, saving money is always a good thing. It is my goal to avoid paying for shipping and, via promo codes, pay less than retail when possible (and of course legal). Another thing that helps is my use of Ebates – you may have seen a commercial or a sidebar ad somewhere online for them, but basically Ebates gives you cash back for shopping online. They partner with retailers who pay Ebates for helping them to drive traffic to their site, and Ebates in turn shares that money with its members, who sign up for free. All you need to do to earn cash back is head to the Ebates site, search for the retailer you plan on shopping with, then click through. You don’t have to give any credit card or banking info to Ebates – they can mail you a paper check, or if you’re like me and prefer to be modern, it can send payments to your verified PayPal account.

It sounded a little too good to be true, but I have been a user since 2012 and have earned nearly $350 in cash back since then. You can sign up free here – just a disclosure, any Ebates members who refer new, confirmed members (which means the new person signed up and made a purchase somewhere of $25 or more) will get a small referral bonus – but anyone can earn that (including you when you refer your friends). I am not paid to talk about Ebates, I just think it is pretty awesome and love to share it with people.
