HOT e.l.f. Deal (Seriously, You Don't Want to Miss This One)

I don't know how long this code is going to last, so don't wait on this one! Thanks so much to @thecouponqueeeen on Instagram for this tip:


Right now on the e.l.f. website, you can enter code BDAYFIVE for $5 off your $6+ order, and receive free shipping on top of it! This code does NOT exclude new items (I tested it on a new item for the scenario above and it worked just fine!). 

TIP: If you are experiencing delays on the mobile site, select full site mode on the bottom of the page. For me, that made the pages load a LOT quicker. 

Thanks again, @thecouponqueeeen, for the awesome tip!

UPDATE: I'm hearing from several of you that you're getting an error message at the final checkout stage. It sounds like the site is overloaded. Try back in a little bit and hopefully this code will still work at that time (I just checked retailmenot.com and apparently the code was posted there about three hours ago, which means it's spreading like wildfire at this point). Hopefully we'll all get to place orders before it's invalid. Fingers crossed!

UPDATE #2: Based on your helpful comments below, it appears that e.l.f. has now disabled this code. I'm so sorry if you weren't able to place an order while it was still active!

  2. Yep. I'm hearing that from others, as well. Sounds like the site is overloaded. Try back in a little bit and hopefully this code will still work at that time (I just checked retailmenot.com and apparently the code was posted there about three hours ago, which means it's spreading like wildfire at this point! lol!). Hopefully we'll all get to place orders before it's invalid. Fingers crossed!

  6. It worked!! Don't forget to add the credit card security code because the message that they're overloaded comes up if you do.

  11. Hey G,

  15. Coupon code is now invalid. Darn, I really wanted the acne foundation :(

  16. They fixed that quick. :/ I wanted to get their newer blending blushes. I hate how their new products are never on sale...

  17. Well, they killed that coupon code fast.

    ReplyDelete
  18. That code *had* to be an error. Because what would stop someone from placing dozens of orders and getting tons of free product?

    1. I don't think so. Because overnight, they apparently released TWO additional codes that did the same thing as this one, and they required no minimum order. In other words, you could order $5 and pay NOTHING. But apparently those codes are now inactive, so I'm not sure what's going on (I'm trying to catch up on all the readers who tagged me overnight on Instagram). So yeah, it APPEARS they are creating the codes, but only allowing a certain amount of orders before they deactivate them, it seems. :(

    2. The 'bdayfive' code is not an error. I remember getting the same code in February for my birthday. I think the deal is great because of the free shipping code seem to work with the bdayfive code (which usually don't happen)

  19. There is a new code that takes $5 off, no minimum. But it seems they have made it so it can only be used once per person.

    1. Thank you, Katie!! I'm so bummed that I only woke up a few minutes ago to approve your message, because apparently this new code is invalid already (or so my Instagram feed tells me). I hope you were able to use is before it went away! I'm seeing that ANOTHER code popped up overnight, but that one's not working now either. Why, elf, why? Lol!

  20. I hate that ELF has these amazing deals and then discontinue it so fast! Either put up or shut up ELF!!!!!

    1. Exactly!!! I HATE posting about codes, only to find that an hour or so later the code is invalid. Drives me NUTS! Lol.

  21. I wish I'd read the comments. I just spent over an hour picking out things (checking online swatches). The I got the "code expired" message. The new codes require you to buy a certain dollar amount to get a free gift. I really only wanted a few brushes.

    1. In sorry you missed it, but I stated that this code was inactive in the update in my actual post as well. Actually it's "Update #2" at the bottom. Again, sorry you missed that! There was a lot going on with this this code the day it went live, with rumors that it was working again at one point, so I kept both updates in my post so everyone could see the evolution of what happened.

  22. ELF sent me an email today cancelling my order because I used this code. I'm really annoyed. If they put the code out, why should I be penalized for taking advantage of it?! Is this happening to anyone else?

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm not sure if you guys just got the email saying your order was cancelled because the coupon was invalid ><

    ReplyDelete
  24. I actually got in on this one and it accepted the discount code. Paid for it and everything. Got an email this morning fromE.L.F saying it was a invalid discount code and they credit ed my debit card back the amount :(

    3. Instead they offered a 5 dollar off coupon I must use within 3 days noway. My initial order was free shipping they said they could still give me free shipping with 35 dollar purchase

  25. I made an order with this code and it went through successfully. Unfortunately elf never processed my order and emailed me today that they cancelled my order because of the code. Sad day.
