I can not be the only one who gets frustrated with sales. I get all excited about big sales, 15-20% off everything! And then I read the fine print. Beauty products are always excluded. If any are included, it’s a strange scent of a candle, or maybe a gift set of the fragrance your grandma likes. Not that lippie you’ve been wanting to splurge on (here’s the lipstick I’m currently coveting).
Well, it turns out that you can get a discount on makeup. Actually, you can get a discount on everything you buy at many stores online, the answer is Ebates. The discount works for that great mascara you can’t live without, your favorite splurge foundation and even the new Urban Decay eye shadow palette everyone is talking about.
Note that I just posted links to Sephora, Neiman Marcus, ULTA, Macy’s… Yes. Ebates works at all of those. They actually partner with about 2000 name brands. Sites like Saks Fifth Avenue, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, bareMinerals, MAC Cosmetics, philosophy, Sigma Beauty, BH Cosmetics, e.l.f. Cosmetics, IT Cosmetics, Kat Von D Beauty, Mac Jacobs Beauty, NARS Cosmetics, Stila Cosmetics…. the list goes on and on. And those are only the traditional beauty sites!
Ebates is pretty easy to use. You sign up, and then use the links on their site to head to the store you want to shop at (note that that is very important, without this step they won’t know you purchased anything). Everything is tracked for you. When you purchase, you’ll get Cash Back automatically every 3 months via a check or PayPal.
One of the best parts of Ebates is that they have limited time offers, such as double cash back! Here are a few special offers for this weekend only:
