Obligatory Sephora Sale Post

EDIT: I am now receiving information that the sale WILL BE VALID IN STORES. You just need to bring the email print-out from Sephora. I have not received mine yet, but I imagine you could get a friend to forward it if need be. :) I will if I get desperate, but I’m not even sure I will be buying anything.

Lol, I think every beauty blogger in the blogosphere will be posting about Sephora’s Friends & Family Sale, but even still I feel I would be remiss in letting it go unmentioned here. It’s Kind of A Big Deal in the beauty fanatic’s world. For many brands (ex: Dior, Guerlain, Clarisonic, T3, GHD) it’s an opportunity to get something on sale that rarely goes on sale anywhere else.

For those of you who are new to the Sephora F&F sale, it is simply a code for their site that will get you 20% off your purchase. This year’s code is FF2009. You can enter it at check out. It is good starting today and ending November 2nd, midnight PST.

Their free shipping offer with any purchase $50 or more still applies with no code necessary, and it’s applicable pre-discount (so if you buy an item that is $50, and the code takes the amt down to $40, you still get free shipping) and sales tax is applied after discount (so you’d pay tax on $40 unless you live in one of those states like Oregon that has no sales tax in which case poo on you, I’m really jealous, etc.).

Anyone can use this code online as many times as they like. As long as you live in the U.S. Or live outside the U.S. but have a U.S. address you can ship to. *cough* Did you hear that from me? I don’t know. =X Actually, I’m not sure if it’ll work with a non-U.S. credit card, so don’t quote me on that either.

You can return purchases made during F&F. However, if you exchange an item you will not receive 20% off the price of the item you are exchanging for. I think the exception to this is an even exchange, like if you bought something and it arrived smashed to hell and you just want a replacement. The only thing the discount won’t apply to is the purchase of gift cards. You can use gift cards to pay for your F&F purchases though.

Last but not least, for goodness’ sake remember to use one of those cashback online rebate sites. You can use Ebates, Mr. Rebates, or Bing Cash Back. I think Fat Wallet works too. Some people have had luck getting their Bing Cash Back rewards and their Ebates rewards– double cash back! :)

Happy Shopping!
