Being Resourceful

A Savvy Shopper's Guide to Bargains, Deals, & Freebies

FREE shipping from Clinique January 2, 2010

Whew! Just in time…  My base was about to run out and Clinique saved the day by offering FREE shipping all weekend! I’m so glad I don’t have to waste a morning schlepping the kids to the mall this week.

Just use code WEEKEND to get FREE shipping on anything from their site — no minimum purchase needed! Allergy tested. 100% fragrance free.

Expires: 1/3/10 at midnight


TODAY: FREE Shipping from Clinique December 18, 2009

Allergy tested. 100% fragrance free. That’s my kind of cosmetic & skin care! A fabulous email just arrived in my inbox… TODAY ONLY, Clinique is offering FREE SHIPPING on any order – no minimum purchase! Just use code DELIGHT at checkout. Remember, they have skin care lines not only for women, but for men and teens too!

This time of year it is so easy to forget that your skin still needs sun protection — but it does. Winter sun still causes skin damage, so be sure to continue to use sunscreen. Their City Block Sheer Oil-Free Daily Face Protector (in SPF 25 or 40) goes on nicely under make-up, or on its own. You’ll thank me in 20 years. 🙂

Perfect for back-to-school, JC Penney is having a Friends & Family sale, offering an additional 20% off almost everything in their stores, on their website, and in their catalog.  And this isn’t just a back-to-school thing! Just think… Football season is about to start, and they sell TVs. Your foyer could use some pizazz, and they sell rugs. Mom’s birthday is coming up, and they sell jewelry. Soon it will be cool enough to enjoy your patio, and they sell furniture. Time to finally drop that last 5lb? They sell fitness equipment! The possibilities are endless!

Print this coupon to use in the store, or use code SAVE20 when shopping at or through their catalog (1-800-222-6161).

Good in the stores on August 9, and good online August 9-10.  I think the catalog is just August 9.

Time to refill my facial supplies through… These codes worked for me tonight! After you fill your shopping bag, go to the checkout and enter the codes toward the bottom of your personal info/billing page. You can only enter two codes and they must be separated with a comma.

  • EYES – free High Impact Mascara sample & free shipping with $35+ order
  • ENTERTAIN – free gift & free shipping with $35+ order (The free gift that showed up in my shopping basket at the final confirmation page was Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss sample in Currant. I didn’t receive a choice of free gifts for this one.)

Expires: Unknown

Oh, and be sure to register for their “Club Clinique.” After I entered my shipping information in the checkout process, I was given my choice of 3 complimentary samples since I signed up. (This is in addition to the free gift from the above code.) My choices were:

  • Men’s Face Scrub Deluxe Sample – .51oz
  • Superdefense SPF 25 Sample in Combination Oily to Oily
  • Aromatics Elixir Vial – 1.5ml
