We all know what October and November bring about - a 20% discount on all the good stuff!
Starting with Sephora - the Friends & Family sale is the same as it was in 2012...you actually need to know a Sephora employee to get a 20% discount code. It runs until October 30 this year, so if you have a connection, work it! (And hook a sister up!! I sadly don't know any employees.)
If Sephora is as smart as they were last year (given the complete uproar on their Facebook page after announcing they were limiting the F&F sale...in years past, it was open to all BI/VIBs, as we well know!), they will hold a Beauty Insider/VIB sale again. Nothing has been announced yet, but in 2012, BIs received a 15% off coupon, and VIBs received 20% off. I'm curious to see if and how the discounts will change with Sephora's new VIB Rouge program. (I'm 300 points away...who thinks I can make Rouge by December 31?!? Don't tell my husband!!) When any sale is announced, I'll make sure to include the details here!
Onto Ulta - watch your mail ladies, because their 20% off coupons are out! Mine came in today's mail, but I know I am usually one of the first to receive my coupon. As always, they exclude certain brands (Lancome, Clinique, etc.) and products (fragrance being the major one), but you can use these coupons on all the good stuff...what Ulta calls "prestige cosmetics" or "prestige haircare." My coupon expires November 2, and is good for a one-time use either online or in-store.
Stay tuned, I have posts upcoming showing you what my picks are from each sale, and once I shop them I'll be sure to post a haul from each :) (What do you guys prefer, a haul post or a video? Let me know what you want to see!)
What do you all plan to pick up at the 20% off sales? What do I have to have?
