Ladies, if you’re like me you spend way too much on makeup. Not by choice, but because makeup is not cheap. I’ve got sensitive skin so most of my skincare products come from Clinique and they add up fast. That’s why I’m always super excited about bonus time – I’ll never turn down a free gift with purchase.
Even if I’m not running low, I always stock up during bonus times. I figure I’m going to buy it at some point, so why not get something extra for doing so? I hardly ever have to purchase lip gloss, sticks, eyeshadow or face creams because of it, so I’m saving a bunch of cash throughout the year.
Clinique isn’t the only brand that does bonus times – most major brands (like Estee Lauder, Lancome, Clarins, and more) have a time of the year where they reward their customers. Check your favorite brand’s website for a listing of their “gift with purchase” events.
Nothing going on near you? Most brands also offer free samples with purchase at the beauty counters, as well as special offers and samples with online purchases. If I’m not sure or nothing is advertised, I always ask. I usually walk away with a fun new product to try for free.
