Get 10% off cosmetics and fragrance at Lord & Taylor
now through 10/27 with code FRIENDS
In case you haven't heard, Lord & Taylor is having their Friends & Family Event now through 10/27, which includes 10% off cosmetics and fragrance (Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown, and more) with code FRIENDS. Lord & Taylor offers free shipping on beauty purchases of $49+, and they have some nice gift-with-purchase offers for beauty. Plus, they offer 5 free samples with every beauty order.
But you should also know that Nordstrom is price-matching this sale now through 10/16 for all items that both retailers carry (must be exact size and shade). And Nordstrom offers free shipping on all orders (no minimum required), and they too have some nice gift-with-purchase offers for beauty. Plus, they offer 3 free samples with every beauty order.
So which site should you order from? Well here are some things to consider...
- Nordstrom is price-matching all items that are part of the Lord & Taylor sale. These items should already be marked down on the Nordstrom site, but if you encounter something that you think should be part of the price-matching offer and it isn't, just call Nordstrom or do a Live Chat and they will adjust (or they will explain to you why the product isn't part of the sale; more than likely it will be because that particular item isn't part of the Lord & Taylor sale).
- The Lord & Taylor sale does have some exclusions. Most notably, NARS is excluded from this sale, so that means Nordstrom is not offering 10% off NARS either. You can view the full list of exclusions HERE. If you would like to see all of the beauty brands that Lord & Taylor offers on their website, click HERE.
- Obviously, it's probably going to come down to how much you order. If you're ordering under $49 worth or products, you'll probably want to go with Nordstrom for the free shipping. But you should also consider which brands you're purchasing, since each retailer has some different gift-with-purchase offers right now. Before you place your order, compare/contrast the gift-with-purchase offers for the brands you're ordering. Here is the list of Lord & Taylor gifts-with-purchase, and here is the list of Nordstrom gifts-with-purchase.
- And don't forget to select your 5 free samples if you order from Lord & Taylor, or your 3 free samples if you order from Nordstrom.
The Double Wear compact obviously isn't the only Estee Lauder item discounted on the Nordstrom right right now--I just included it to remind you that Estee Lauder is part of the sale.
