I pounced on a recent Groupon deal for The Body Shop, one of my favorite places to buy moisturizer because of the chain’s no animal testing, eco-friendly policies. I paid $20 for a $40 Groupon credit at The Body Shop in November. Yesterday I redeemed my Groupon and saved more than 50% off!
I bought four items adding up to $72. (Yikes! Prices have been creeping up, which is why I trade off restocking my skincare items at Target.) I got a free $10 yearlong membership to the store’s Love Your Body program, which entitled me to 10% off, or $6.20. Because my birthday is in January, I also got a free $10 birthday credit off my tab. My original total with tax was $87.04, but I ended up paying just $39.71 (see above: $19.71 in the store plus the original $20 Groupon). That’s a cool 54% off!!!
Better yet, the sales clerk told me that their holiday sales were amazing owing partly to Groupon. She expected The Body Shop will offer another Groupon soon so stay tuned! If you can’t wait, The Body Shop is having a sale Feb. 15-March 13, 2011. During the sale, buy two skincare items and get a third free. Buy three items and get two free! Men’s skincare items are included.
What’s the best Groupon or daily deal you’ve gotten?
