No matter how frugal I am, I still love to spoil myself every now and then and if I didn't know these how to get the best Sephora Deals with these Savings Hacks my budget (and my husband) wouldn't be very happy! There is nothing wrong with doing something for yourself every now then, but when you can do it on a budget? Even better! I talked to a friend of mine who worked at Sephora and she gave me some tips she learned during her years working there!
How to Score the Best Sephora Deals – 27 Sephora Savings Hacks
Become a Sephora Beauty Insider – This is a no-brainer. You rack up points every time you make a purchase and then those points can be redeemed for products and discounts.
Score 4 Free Samples – Make sure you get your 3 free samples with every purchase online. But did you know you can score a 4th free sample? Yes at this weekly promotion page select one and enter it as a coupon code for a 4th free sample!
In Store Samples – Did you know you can get samples of products in the store? You just have to ask and you get a small container of the item and it's normally more than the free samples online. You can choose 3 samples from each ‘world' make up (anything with color), skin care and fragrance.
Birthdays Club – You don't have to join just be Beauty Insider and get a free gift during your birthday month. My favorite item to date was the highlighter stick that gave a great glow!
Ask for Sales Items -Sephora doesn't push their sale items and they don't make them very easy to find. You can just ask any sales associates about what is currently on sale.
Do Some Research Ahead of Time – Check out what you are looking for online. Sales associates are trained to show you the most expensive items to maximize each sale, in many cases they are told to push certain brands as well. Knowing what is cheapest and what you want to look at will maximize your savings.
Follow in Social Media – Follow Sephora on Facebook and Twitter they will announce sales and clearance items and any special deals they have going on.
Facebook Fan Friday Freebies – Say that two times fast! Sephora will often time offer freebies for fans on Friday's. This is something like spending $50 and get this item free. It's great to check out if you are planning to buy anyway!
Sephora in JCPenney's Has the Best Clearance – I have found that the Sephora's in JCPenny have the best clearance. The Sephora's are smaller so they have to be more selective on the products they carry so the clearance is better than the stand alone stores.
Use Sephora Brand – The Sephora brand is made to be as great as the expensive name brands and holds up just as well but for a fraction of the price. You can get the same look without the cost of the label.
Shop Online – Shop online and use coupon codes to get great deals, just don't forget your free samples with purchase!
Stack Coupon Codes – The best things about shopping Sephora online? You can stack coupons codes! Have one for 20% and free shipping? Use both!
Get Discounted Sephora Cards – At sites like Gift Card Granny you can get discounted Sephora Gift Cards for around an 11% savings. Sign up with my link here and get $5 free to use for additional savings!
Buy Discounted JCPenny's Gift Cards – You can score discounted JCPenny Gift Cards and shop at the Sephoras inside JCP's and save money that way. At sites like Gift Card Granny, you can score upwards of 24% off JCPenny Gift Cards. Sign up with my link here and get $5 free to use for additional savings!
Free Gift Cards – I know it sounds too good to be true but it's true. You can score free Sephora Gift Cards! Watch sites like Gyft.com and Wrapp.com they have both offered free $5 Sephora Gift Cards for smartphone users.
Ebates – Use Ebates and get 8% cash back when shopping online on top of any coupon codes!
Ibotta – Use Ibotta after your purchase and upload your receipt and get $5 back on a $50 purchase. Pair this with coupon codes and sales, and Ebates for a killer deal!
Sephora Flash – Sephora Flash is like Amazon Prime for Sephora. You get free 2 days shipping for an entire year.
Buy Value Sets – Buy the value sets for the best deals! You can save up to 70% by buying the value sets. A good example is this Too Faced Le Grand Chateau Collection for $49 (a value of $215 sold separately)
Pay Attention to Price Per Oz – Sometimes bigger is better! Take the Philosophy Pure Grace Perfumed Body Lotion for example. You can get 16oz for $37 ($2.31/oz) or 32oz for $55 ($1.71/oz) that's a big savings for the bigger bottle! If you will use the product spring for the bigger size.
