Beauty Promotions Guide

We've never been able to understand why all the surrounding department stores offer beauty incentives at the same time. And what's the deal with those gifts with purchase. Are they ever actually usable?!

For anyone in the beauty market, we have put together a handy promotions guide. It appears as if the best deals are at Bergdorfs but let us know if you're able to find a better incentive.

Barneys
Spend over $175 and get a bag full of "goodies." Woopie! This deal runs until Saturday, September 25th.


Nordstrom
From now until September 26, you can select from a series of products online and get a gift. It's not such an attractive incentive but they do have the new YSL Opium, Belle D'Opium, which doesn't officially launch for a week. We had a sneak preview and promise the sent is intoxicating.

The code BEAUTY is required at checkout.




Bergdorf Goodman
From now until Sunday, Bergdorf Goodman is offering customers a $25 beauty gift card, which is good towards a purchase of $100 or more. In addition, customers can receive additional gift cards when spending above $500.



Saks Fifth Avenue
From September 30 to October 9, dozens of beauty counters at Saks will be offering gifts with purchase. In addition, Saks will be give customers a tote bag with the purchase of $100 or more.

Simotanously, S5A is running an electronic gift card event, which ends October 1. The gift card breakdown is below.

Spend->Get
$250-$499-> $25
$500-$999-> $50
$1000-$1999-> $100
$2000-$2999-> $300
$3000 & up-> 450

(Yes, there are dozens of restrictions -- Chanel, Prada, Louboutin, Miu Miu etc.)
