Don’t you love it when you fall into a good sale? Last week I bought a couple of groupons to spend at the Body Shop. The deal was spend $10 for a $20 voucher. I bought two, because I knew they were having a good sale and I could stock up on some cheap gifts. Here’s what the deal ended up looking like:
- Bought four mini gift cubes (shown above) on sale 2 for $12
- Minus “Love Your Body” Discount* = $2.40
- Minus Groupon $20.00 (remember I only paid $10)
Total price paid= $11.60 plus tax for $40.00 worth of product, or just $2.90 each yay!
Here’s the nitty gritty if you’re interested: Regular price of the gift cubes is $10 each, so I would have paid $40.00 retail price (well I wouldn’t have, but somebody pays full price for this stuff). Each cube contains a body butter, mini poufy and body wash in case you were dying to know.
*If you’re not familiar with the “Love Your Body” discount, you pay $10 for the card and get 10% off every purchase (including sale prices) for the whole year. Plus you get a $10 reward during your b-day month, so you basically break even, even if you don’t buy anything all year. No I don’t work for the Body Shop, I just really like their products.
I think I’m going to give them as gifts to my case managers at work. They work really hard and deserve a nice treat for the holidays. Now I just need to figure out what to get my social worker (he’s not really the body shop “demographic”, although his girlfriend might appreciate the gift).
What’s the best deal you’ve snagged recently? How’s your Holiday Shopping going?
