When you’re on a budget, you have to make every single dollar count. That’s why free rewards and discount programs are an amazing way to make every purchase count. As you spend you’ll typically earn points which will ultimately result in discounts or coupons, which every Fashionista should take advantage of. Here are few notable rewards programs:
American Eagle Outfitters:
American Eagle has one of the best rewards programs around. Every time you spend $1 at any American Eagle store of website or Aerie store or website you earn 1 point. 100 points = 15% off coupon, 200 points = 20% off, 350 points =30% off, 500 points = 40% off. The points are totaled every three months and then they’re sent out. They also will send out a 15% off coupon during your birthday month and for every five bras you buy at Aerie, your sixth one will be free! They also offer members-only sales and events so take advantage of this program and start earning those rewards.
CVS might seem like an odd addition to this list, but they have an extensive beauty department which is perfect for some cheap updates to your makeup routine. Once you sign up for a free ExtraCare Rewards card you will earn ExtraBucks Rewards, which is money that can be applied towards purchases, and coupons for every purchase you make. You can also join the Beauty Club for free once you receive your ExtraCare card. With the Beauty Club membership you will receive 10% off beauty pass after enrollment, $5 ExtraBucks Rewards for every $50 spent on beauty products plus $3 ExtraBucks Rewards on your birthday.
Sephora offers a free ‘Beauty Insider’ rewards program. With this program you earn points for every $1 you spend in stores or online. Once you reach a certain number of point you can apply them towards various product rewards. You will also receive a birthday gift (mine was an awesome Benefit Cosmetics mascara and highlighter sample set). If you spend $350+ in a calendar year you will be upgraded to a VIB (Very Important Beauty Insider) which offers all the benefits of a Beauty Insider plus first dibs on new products, seasonal VIB-only gifts and advance access to sales. If you’re a real beauty addict you can even be upgraded to VIB Rouge if you spend $1000+in a calendar year. VIB Rouge has all the benefits of the Beauty Insider and VIB plus free shipping on all orders, exclusive Rouge events and special surprise gifts. If that doesn’t sound good to you, I don’t know what will!
