Huge thanks to my pal @lippiesandlotion on Instagram for this hot tip!
If you're planning to go an outlet mall that has a Cosmetics Company Store (otherwise known to beauty junkies as a "CCO") between now and 2/15, you need to know about this one! There is a RARE "20% off any one item" coupon that is valid between now and 2/15.
HOW TO GET AND USE THIS COUPON:
You must go to the website for your local outlet mall and look for a link on the homepage to see if your outlet is participating. For example, when I went to my local outlet's website HERE (Las Americas, here in San Diego), I clicked on the link in main menu bar that says DEALS. From there, I scrolled through all the various store deals until I found THIS ONE. Bingo! Per the fine print, which you can read below, you must present the offer at time of purchase. I'm taking that to mean that you need to show it on your phone (or print it out if you don't have a smartphone). There's no code or barcode on the coupon, so you probably just have to show it to them to verify that your particular outlet mall is participating.
VALID FROM: 2/12/2016 - 2/15/2016
The Cosmetics Company Store
Presidents' Day Sale
Shop with us and save 20% on one item!
Valid in store only. Discount applies to full price items only. Offer must be presented at time of purchase. Limit one offer per customer. Not valid on previously purchased items. Does not include tax. Offer discount value cannot exceed $200. Offer subject to change without notice. Void where prohibited.
If you're new to Cosmetics Company Outlet and why this coupon is such a big deal, Cosmetics Company is the outlet store for Estee Lauder brands, meaning the products sold at CCO are coming directly from the manufacturer. You can find great deals on MAC, Estee Lauder, Smashbox, Clinique, Bobbi Brown, Aveda, Origins, and other brands owned by Estee Lauder, and there are often previous limited edition products as well as discontinued and current products available at a discount.
UPDATE: The coupon says "discount applies to full price items only" but I don't recall seeing things for full-price at my CCO before. There's always at least a 10% discount, right? Please someone correct me if I'm wrong about that! You may want to call your local CCO to make sure that you can use it before you drive to your outlet mall, just to be safe!
Thanks so much for this hot tip, @lippiesandlotion!
