HOT ONLINE DEAL: Get $10 off Every $50 You Spend on Beauty at Macy's + Free Shipping (Ideas and Tips to Maximize Your Savings)

I should have warned you. Every time Ulta and Sephora do their annual events, you can always expect to see great deals from other retailers at the same time. It's like the beauty universe conspires at this time of year to drain our wallets! So yes, you're seeing a lot of crazy deal posts from me this week, and I would expect more before the week is over. Speaking of...

Thanks to readers Svahgal and @haphv.le on Instagram for the tips about this one!

Now and through 9/18 online only on the Macy's website, receive $10 off EVERY $50 you spend on beauty or fragrance with code VIP at checkout. Free shipping on all beauty orders at Macy's and don't forget to sign into your Plenti account at checkout to rack up points (or use points you already have!).


There are tons of beauty brands at Macy's that you can use this code on (ABH, Too Faced, Tarte, Laura Mercier, Stila, Smashbox, Bobbi Brown, Estee Lauder, Clinique, Lancome, etc. etc.). But I also want to remind you that Macy's sells Inglot and MAC, which are two brands that you can't find at some other retailers (and also two brands that don't often run sales). Click here for the full list of beauty brands at Macy's.

And here's another tip:

Since this code does NOT exclude sale and clearance items, all of the items on THIS PAGE are included. The UD Electric Palette is still in stock for $24 (reg $49). I added two to my cart, which brought me up to $48, so I found a $3 Laura Mercier sharpener to get me to $50. As you can see, after the discount code my total was $41 for TWO Electric Palettes, plus free shipping (and the sharpener, of course). That's BETTER than a BOGOFREE considering that the retail on this palette is $49.

Another tip:

This Clarisonic Mia 2 in Blue Zebra Floral Print (Macy's Exclusive) is on sale for $119 (reg $149). Since you get $10 off for EVERY $50 you spend on beauty right now, that means you get $20 off this item, which brings your price down to $99 (plus free shipping).

But it gets better...

When you spend $75+ on beauty tools right now, you get this FREE gift (this will automatically be added to your cart when you purchase the Clarisonic deal or any other beauty tools that add up to $75+).

Samples include:
  • StriVectin Color Care Shampoo & Conditioner Packette 
  • Elizabeth Arden SuperStart Packette 
  • Lancôme Advanced Genifique, Deluxe Sample 
  • philosophy purity, Deluxe Sample, 1 oz 
  • Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Eye Gel Mask 
  • Bare Escentuals BareMinerals Skinorials Sample for Normal-Day Skin 
  • Bare Escentuals BareMinerals Skinorials Sample for Combination Skin
  • M61 by Bluemercury Powerglow Sample 
  • Cane + Austin 20% Miracle Pad Sample 
  • Bliss Makeup Melt Packette 
  • Estée Lauder Advance Night Repair, 7ml 
  • Cinique Smart Custom Repair Serum Packette 
  • Origins Plantscription Power Lifting Cream Packette, 1.5 ml 
  • Shiseido White Lucent Multi Bright Night Cream Packette
  • Orange Oraganza Bag 
  • Your gift will be added automatically at checkout. Minimum purchase amount does not include gift card(s), tax, shipping or gift wrap charges. One gift per customer. Available while supplies last. Online only. 

I hope that helps, and thanks again to Svahgal and @haphv.le for the hot tips!


  1. You can even pick up your stuff at Macy's if they have them available! I bought the Electric palette last week and pick it up at the store :)

  2. also DIllards if anyone has one in their area started the same exact deal today (actually it keeps going up so $10 off $50, $20 off $100 and so on). And you can mix and match between the different counters/brands (they have edge beauty that sells nyx and other brands) so i bought a bunch of nyx stuff (1 lingerie lip, 1 matte lip cream, one ombre blush) and an estee lauder lip potion all for $43! Here i go doing more damage at macy's now ha!

  3. Ohh, this is great! I've been eyeing the Smashbox 5-Pc. Photo Pop Set and now there's just no reason not to get it! :) I knew there was a reason why I was waiting to order this (other than my bank account has been begging & pleading me not to - whoops!)...

  4. The sale is in store tomorrow through 9/16.

  5. I recently bought some Inglot shadows( 7) and the Freedom palette and they are really amazing. So pigmented and creamy. I love that they are made in Poland too. I'd highly recommend them. I ended up watching numerous YT vids to look at the colors so I could make my own neutral palette.
