You guys know I’m all about saving money and scoring a great deal, right?
That’s why I was so excited when I heard about Splender–a site that gives you all the 411 on all the latest sales, discount codes to get you major savings, AND (wait for it) gives you cash back when you shop online!
I stumbled upon it at the perfect time, actually, because it’s beauty insider week at Sephora, and with Splender, you get 10% cash back on whatever you buy on Sephora.com!
So..what’s that mean?
To give you the short version: with Sephora’s Beauty Insider program, you get amazing free products, a birthday present, early access to try the latest and greatest in beauty, the ability to shop sales early, and depending on your status level, free makeup applications! (I’m kind of obsessed with it, if you can’t already tell.)
This week, rewards members get 2x-4x the points when you shop at Sephora through August 9th! (Which means…more free stuff a lot faster!)
Because I was going to stock up on some of my favorite products anyway (more on that below!) Splender sweetens the deal by giving 10% cash back when you shop at Sephora.com through Splender!
How does it work?
All you have to do is sign up with Splender (it’s free) and then search the site you want to shop (they have over 800+ stores to choose from, including all the major ones–Nordstrom, Macy’s, J.Crew, Bloomies, the list goes on). Or you can browse by sales, deals, and cash back percentages offered–which usually range from 2%-40%, depending on the brand and retailer.
Then, just click through to the retailer’s website, and shop as you normally would. (It knows you’re buying through Splender because of your cookies–so make sure you don’t flush your cache in between those steps!)
When you log back into your dashboard, your cash back commissions will appear!
So, to bring this full circle, say you spend $250 on makeup (hey, you’re stocking up for a year!) that means you’ll get $25 cash back! (Enough to spend even more on makeup, or fund your latte addiction for a week.) Essentially, you get cash in your pocket for shopping you would’ve already done anyway!
Now…what to buy at Sephora?
This is a tough one. I’ve spent well over my weight at Sephora each year since I was about 14, but there are a few tried and true favorites I stand by below:
