Although the VIB & VIB Rouge sale is nearing its end, or as I like to call it “the most wonderful time of the year”, saving money at Sephora is a year long goal for many. I’ll be sharing my small haul from this sale and how I saved even more than just the standard 20% off.
First, let’s focus on what I bought:
Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray Duo – 2 x 4oz
Sephora Collection ‘Gnome for the Holidays’ Airbrush Sponge Set – 3 sponge blenders; large size, medium, and small
Fresh Sugar Lip Serum Advanced Therapy – 10mL
TOTAL = $116.00
Next we’ll just touch on the items I received for free, or purchased using my Beauty Insider points:
Versace Bright Crystal – sample size
Versace Eros Pour Femme Eau de Parfum – sample size
Urban Decay Naked Concealer – light/warm; medium light/neutral; dark/golden
Urban Decay Urban Addictions eyeshadow quad palette – 4 x 0.03oz
For everything listed, my original price (before taxes) would have been $116.00. With the 20% off sale, I received $23.20 off my purchase. With my Ebates account, I received an additional 4% cashback on my order, giving me $3.72 back. Finally, my intention with the free Urban Decay eyeshadow palette was to sell it for $15.00, essentially providing me with another cash discount.
Altogether, I saved $41.92 off my original total of $116.00, with a final payment amount of $74.08 (before taxes), giving me about a 36% savings!
Like I said, the sale is nearing its end, but I use Ebates all year round for my online purchases. It’s super easy to sign up and I’ve already received a couple cheques from them in the last year. The percentage amount that you receive back depends on the store you are buying from, some provide more savings than others, but there are tons of stores that participate in this incentive.
