Keep reading for all the details about how to snag this deal...
If you're new to this promo code, a few times a year HSN offers first-time customers $20 off any $40+ purchase. There are some exclusions, as I'll list below, but beauty is not one of them! And really, if you're reading this blog, that's all you need to know!
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT to read through this entire post--hopefully this will answer any questions you may have. Thanks!
So here's how it works:
If you are a new HSN customer, you can enter code 159811 at checkout (you'll have a chance to enter the code on the very last step before order confirmation) for $20 off any $40+ purchase on the HSN website. This code expires on 5/31/2015 at 11:59 PM ET. If you are not a new HSN customer, you may want to ask a friend or family member to order for you, if the code does not work for you (I mean, this is quite the deal!).
You can use this code on anything, but...
With a few exceptions (see fine print below), you can use this code for anything on the HSN site. But the deal that I know a LOT of you have been waiting for is the Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar + a deluxe sample of Better Than Sex Mascara. This set is currently $49 + free shipping on the HSN website HERE, so with that code you will pay $29 total (before sales tax).
After you submit your order...
If you use the code, and it works, your order summary will show the adjusted price ($29 + sales tax). You may receive an order confirmation via email after you have submitted your order, and that confirmation may show the price as $49. Just look at the bottom of the confirmation email and you should see the adjusted price.
Don't want the Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar? No problem...
You can use this code on other beauty products on the HSN site, but I highly recommend choosing beauty products or sets that already come with free shipping, to maximize your savings (CLICK HERE for the list).
If code 159811 does not work for you, even though you are a first-time customer...
First, clear your browser's cache. Second, make sure that the code box is completely empty before you enter code. Third, if you're on a mobile device, try purchasing from a desktop. If you're on a desktop and it's not working, try accessing from a mobile device. These tips have all been suggested, and used, by readers in the past, so hopefully they'll work for you too!
What if this set is sold out by the time I read this blog post?
If this set is sold out by the time you read this blog post (these tend to go quickly when I post about them), not to worry! You can still get just the palette (no mascara sample) HERE for $29 + free shipping with the same code. Now if THAT sells out too, then you're out of luck (until HSN restocks).
What is HSN, and how do I know this is legit?
If you've never heard of HSN before, it is a home shopping channel and website here in the US that has been around for decades. They are completely legitimate and trusted (I've posted about many, many beauty deals here over the years and I have personally ordered from HSN countless times without incident). HSN works directly with brands (Too Faced, Benefit, Smashbox, OPI, etc.) and brand employees appear on-air quite often to demonstrate their products. I would venture to guess that hundreds of Nouveau Cheap readers have taken advantage of HSN beauty deals that I've posted about over the years.
