Thrifty Thursdays

Posted on: September 15, 2011

So, this is my first “Thrifty Thursday” post.  On Thursdays, I’m going to give you a list of places you can get good deals.  Lots of makeup sites run sales and there are always free samples floating around.  Hope you enjoy!

First up are some great deals on some travel size products from Wal-Mart.  I know summer is over, but the holidays are coming up and many of you will be traveling.  Degree men or women’s deodorant, Dove Hair Repair Shampoo, Olay Body Wash, and Oral B Floss.  Here’s the link to the original blog post

This Saturday (17th), there is a one day only promotion at Bath and Body Works.   You get a free mini candle and tote bag with any home fragrance purchase.  Here’s the link to that blog post.

Another great site for getting a good deal is e.l.f.   They are ALWAYS running some kind of sale.  A lot of times they have free shipping on orders over $25.  The great thing about e.l.f. is that most of the stuff on their website is under $5, so you can end up with a lot of stuff for not a lot of money.  A few months ago, they were running a sale where you got 10 FREE mineral eye shadows when you purchased $25 worth of stuff.  The mineral eye shadows are normally $3 each so in addition to a ton of awesome makeup, I got $30 worth of eye shadow for free.  Right now, they are running the free shipping deal and 50% off Archelle’s Fall Picks.  They are also running a sale for the next 3 hours called “Coffee Break” and they have some products for 51% off.  You can’t use the 3 together though, but it’s still a great deal!

Right now, Coastal Scents is running a “last chance” sale.   My mom just ordered me to 88 Original Palette for my birthday for $14.21!  You can’t beat that; 88 eye shadows for $14!  You can also get their 12 piece brush set for $9.95 which makes them less than $1 per brush!  They are also running free shipping on orders of $50 or more.  This sale ends today, so hurry!

Urban Decay also has some things on sale right now.  I swatched the things I got in my previous post.  It’s a limited selection, but you can’t beat the prices.  The loose pigment is normally $20 on sale for $1!

For “liking” Burberry on Facebook, you can submit your address to receive a free sample of Burberry Body, their fragrance.  I’m not big on perfumes, but I did this anyway.

Calvin Klein is also sending out fragrance samples right now.

Another good tip is to follow your favorite brands/products on Facebook and Twitter.  You will get the most up-to-date information about the item you’re following.  The ones I follow are always posting sales and deals.

It’s also a good idea to check out the weekly mailers and websites for stores like CVS and Walgreens.  Right now, CVS is offering 20% off fall makeup and beauty products.  Walgreens is offering buy 1 get one 50% off on select makeup products. 

So there’s the first Thrifty Thursdays post.  I hope you enjoy and take advantage of some of these deals!  Let me know what you get!
