Hi beauties!

Today I’m doing a video on how to save money while shopping, whether it be for makeup or clothing. These are my coupling tips and tricks that have helped me budget my money so I really hope it helps you out too!

1. Find out what brands/companies have recycling programs

Many brands have recycling programs where if you save a certain number of empty containers from their brand, you can redeem them for a free item. Here are some that I use/have found:

  • Back to MAC: 6 empty MAC products will get you a free lipstick. You can do this online here or in store
  • LUSH 5 Pot Program: 5 empty LUSH black pots will get you a free Fresh Face Mask
  • Kiehl’s Recycle and Be Rewarded: For every empty Kiehl’s product you recycle, you’ll receive 1 stamp. Accumulate 10 stamps and you’ll get a free travel collection product of your choice

2. Sign up for sale alerts via Shoptagr

Shoptagr is a money savers DREAM! I added the little Shoptagr button to my toolbar so that whenever I’m browsing online and I find something too expensive, I can click on the Shoptagr button, the item will automatically be added to my Shoptagr wishlist and then I’ll be notified ANY time there’s a price reduction on that item. I create lists for makeup items, beauty products, shoes, clothes- basically anything that I feel I can save some cash on. I even do this on some Forever 21 items because why not?!

-Sign up for Shoptagr here
(PS: tweet me your wish lists so I can see what you’ve been eyeing!)

3. Sign up for the CVS Beauty Club

Personally, I do the majority of my drugstore makeup shopping at CVS because I find their reward system to be the best. For ever $50 you spend on beauty products, you’ll get $5 extra bucks (CVS money) back. You can use this $5 on ANY item in the store, not just on beauty products.

Pay attention to their extra bucks weekly deals – this is how I save the most money. For example, a lot of times there will be a deal where if you buy $15 worth of Maybelline product, you’ll get $5 extra bucks back. So I’ll buy a few Maybelline products that add up to $15, get the receipt printed, and at the end of my receipt I’ll have my $5 extra bucks. I then use that $5 extra bucks on another transaction. I’ve seen this type of deal on makeup, toilet paper, paper towels, home stuff, pain relievers, so don’t be shy to rome around the aisles trying to find the best deal! Even if you don’t need it at that particular moment, buy in bulk for the future.

-Sign up for CVS Beauty Club here
-Sign up for regular CVS ExtraCare Card here

4. Use a cash back/rebate website

Currently I’m using Ibotta, which is a website that gives you cash back for shopping online. I never online shop without first checking Ibotta to see what rebates/cash back offers they have going on. I’ve seen $5 off $50 at Sephora.com, great deals at Ulta, and more. You basically create an account, click on “Browse Rebates,” type in your store, and see what deals they have. You’ll get cash back within 45 days

If you’re more of an in-store shopper, you can download the app on your phone (it’s free), unlock rebates the store you want, scan your receipt, and you’ll get the rebate within 48 hours.

-Sign up for Ibotta here

5. Research CCO’s around you

Many people don’t know this, but you can buy discounted makeup at CCO’s (CCO stands for Cosmetic Company Outlet). CCO’s sell Estee Lauder brands: MAC, Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown, Origins, and much more. They sell a lot of past limited edition MAC collections as well as permanent products at a discounted rate.

Normally CCO’s are inside big shopping malls or outlet malls. You can easily find out if there’s one near you by Googling “CCO (and your zip code).”

6. Follow your favorite brands on social media

I feel like every time I open up Instagram I see a brand doing a giveaway for their followers. Make a list of your favorite brands/companies and follow them on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat. Many brands are starting to do Snapchat giveaways and freebies for their followers so take advantage!

Also, follow popular beauty magazines for freebies

Many magazines do freebies for their readers – I see it all the time as I’m flipping through the magazine. You can also find a bunch of giveaways on their websites. Here are some that I’ve seen:

-Allure Freebies
-Seventeen Magazine Freebies
-GLAMOUR Magazine Freebies

7. Sign up for Sephora and Ulta loyalty programs

If you’re a frequent makeup shopper, definitely sign up for the Sephora and Ulta loyalty programs. Here’s a breakdown of each:

Sephora has 3 tiers of membership, all free to join (it’s not a credit card):

Learn more about Sephora’s reward program here

Ulta’s Ultimate Rewards Program offers 1 point for every $1 spent. If you spend $400+ in 1 year, your dollar will count as 1.25 points. The more points you rack up, the more savings you’ll get. Here’s a breakdown of savings points can get you:

Learn more about Ulta’s Ultimate Rewards Program here

8. ALWAYS Google coupons before online shopping

My favorite coupon sites are:

-Retail Me Not
-Deals Plus
-Coupon Cabin

It’s easier to just Google the name of the store you’re shopping at and then the word “coupons” (example: Forever 21 coupons) rather than searching through each of these sites individually. Whatever available coupons there are at the time, they’ll show up in your Google search.

9. Sign up for newsletters for benefits

Many companies offer 10%, 20%, 25%, or just free shipping if you sign up for their e-mail newsletters.

10. Sign up for Target REDcard

If you’re a frequent Target shopper, you may want to sign up for their REDcard, which gets you 5% off any and every purchase as well as an extended return policy.

Learn more about the Target REDcard here

I hope you guys found this video/blog post helpful! Let me know your favorite couponing tips+tricks, and if you score a great deal let me know what it was!
