[Shopaholic] Smashbox Surprises

I just had to share this deal you readers...  you see, I'm always scouring the web making sure I'm getting the most bang for my buck when ordering items online.  And just I can't keep this one to myself!

After using a sample of Smashbox's Tinted Moisturizer that came with a previous Sephora purchase, I was pleasantly surprised.  Remember, I'm not a foundation girl... but getting some added coverage via a moisturizer -sign me up!

Tinted Moisturizer in Light - Smashbox $30

I had thought about buying the TM on Sephora, getting my 8% Cash Back thru Ebates, but since it's only $30, I would need to add more to my order to push it over the $50 threshold to get free shipping (a must!).  Thing is, I don't really need any other items right now.

I first hit up Ebates to see if Smashbox had a cash back link, and they do - 4%.  Not as great as Sephora, but still not too shabby... especially when J.Crew some companies only offer 1%, wtf?

I also learned if you sign up for the Pretty Points reward program you'll get similar freebies like Sephora's VIB program, such as a Free Birthday Gift and an additional Deluxe Sample with every order.  And if you shop on Tuesdays or Thursday from 9am-2pm PST, you get automatically rewarded through their "Let's Do Lunch" Promotion.

And on top of all of that, there is Free Shipping on any amount!  Boo-yah!

So to get this straight for you readers, I spent $30 on Tinted Moisturizer (retail price) and also snagged...
All of that for $30! Major Score!

You don't get to pick out the Let's Do Lunch or Pretty Points Bonus, but I really don't mind since they are full sized samples and not "inklings" of eye shadows stuck to paper...

So there you have it... how to get the most free shit on the web some bang for you buck!

Happy Weekend and don't forget to use Ebates first!


  1. Awesome! I've been wanting to try some Smashbox stuff but I ran into the same thing w/ Sephora - didn't want $50 worth of stuff. I'm cool with only getting 4% cash back if they're throwing in all that other loot!

  2. I love their tinted mosturizer, I always thought it would be too light and make my combo skin oily but it is seriously wonderful stuff with just a hint of coverage. Great purchase!

  3. nice job, girl! You and your deals... haha, you'd be proud of my deal today. Ill email you. :)
