If you're a Beauty Insider at Sephora you've surely received your complimentary $15 gift card in the mail or via email by now. Thinking I had to spend $50 to use it (as the fine print states), I tossed mine aside figuring I should be selfless and finish my Christmas shopping before spending any money on myself.
Then I stumbled upon this post from Nouveau Cheap. Apparently, if you use your gift card online there is no minimum purchase (a.k.a. loophole jackpot!) This means, as long as you spend at least $15 total (including shipping & tax), you could pay $0!!!
Rather than getting one thing, factoring in tax and S&H, and paying nothing I opted to get 2 things, use a free shipping promo code I found online ("S4FM516"), and pay a little bit .
Here's what I got:
NARS "Silent Night" Single Eye Shadow $9
OPI for Sephora Nail Colour in "Metro Chic" $9
My 3 Free Samples:
Michael Kors "Very Hollywood" perfume
Gucci "Flora" perfume
YSL "Parisienne" perfume
My 100 Point Perk:
Renee Furterer Volumizing Shampoo
My Grand Total: $4.26
