Black Friday Guide to Saving at Sephora
This year, shop Black Friday the fashionable way — from your home. Have a little spa night, pull out your laptop, and shop, shop, shop. Sephora stores are fun, but I don’t think they let you have a glass of wine while you shop.
Here are a few ways to get the most out of shopping online on Black Friday.
Pick a Backup Color/FormulaWalking into a big makeup sale without a game plan is almost as scary an idea as going on a first date without wearing any makeup. You just don’t do things like that. At the very minimum, you should know the exact color or shade of an item you’re lusting over and hoping to grab. If you’re looking to be ahead of the curve, you should also have a backup in mind that you can switch to right away if your first love is all sold out.
Price Check With Multiple BrowsersIf you’re buying items from brands that aren’t sold exclusively at Sephora, it’s smart to price-check Black Friday sales at other makeup and beauty stores. Some stores will compete with one another during these holiday events to offer the best deal. You might be able to find a value gift set that has that same exact lipstick you were going to buy, plus a matching lip liner and gloss, all for a lower price than the lipstick alone!
Earn Cash Back at EbatesEbates will give you a percentage back of every eligible dollar you spend at Sephora. This Cash Back is money that you earn just for shopping. Yes, that’s right — you’re basically making money by spending money. Ebates regularly has bonus sale days and events where you can earn an even higher percentage back at certain stores, so always check at Ebates to see what the current Cash Back rate is or download the Ebates button for Chrome to always stay in the loop. Between this Cash Back and all the other sales and promotions you can benefit from at Sephora, you’ll be getting glam while keeping your bank account looking gorgeous.
Plan Ahead and Set a Spending LimitAbout two months before the Black Friday sales start, I start keeping a list of any makeup items I run out of that I don’t need to immediately replace. Then, a week before the sale, I check all of my products to see if anything is almost empty, out of date, or broken, or if my collection is missing a key color or product. At this point, I’ll have a list of everything that I need.
I always set a spending limit. If these replacement products leave me with money left over, that’s when I shop for little splurges and treats. Otherwise, it’s great to save so much money on all my makeup bag staples and get new, fresh favorites all at once.
Use Store Rewards CreditsLots of stores, including Sephora, offer a rewards club where frequent shoppers can be rewarded with extra discount codes, gift certificates, and more. You might even get an instant discount on your order just for signing up as a new customer. The Sephora rewards club gives you things like free makeup on your birthday, free deluxe samples, and early access to new product releases.
Use Coupon and Promo CodesI don’t remember the last time I paid full price or paid for shipping during an online shopping spree. That’s because I don’t remember the last time I shopped online and didn’t use coupon and promo codes. The easiest way to find all of these codes in one convenient place is to go to the Sephora page at Ebates. You’ll have access to so many codes that are good for everything from free shipping to dollars off items from your favorite luxury brands. Ebates also offers Cash Back, which lets you earn money on every dollar you spend.
Keep Calm and Shop On(line)Try not to get too worked up the night before the sale starts. It’s easy to picture everything selling out, or to imagine yourself sleeping through the early bird sale you’re planning on shopping at. Don’t let other shoppers, or your own mind, stress you out. If you shop and are in a panic, you’ll end up spending money on things you don’t need or want, placing too many spontaneous orders, and you won’t even enjoy the experience. Just remember — the things you’re hoping to buy will be available after Black Friday, and at a price you’ll most likely be fine paying.
Sure, savings are nice, but if you by chance miss something before it sells out, it isn’t the end of the world. A slow, calm shopper may be able to find better deals, better discount coupon codes, and take the time to join a rewards program or open a store credit card for even more perks and savings. Sometimes taking your time can get you the best deals and biggest discounts, even during flash sales.
