New Target and Amazon Beauty Deals

A few quick Target and Amazon tidbits to go over with you today!

  • Thanks to reader @chelseamarie014 for the tip that the February Target Beauty Box is still in stock and now $7 (originally $10) plus free shipping for all customers. I received mine (paid $10 for it) and I am very happy with it (I would do an unboxing but my brother already snaked the cleanser and my mom took the mascara and haircare--we always seem to divvy up the goodies in these boxes!)
  • Several of the e.l.f. holiday sets are now on on the beauty clearance page HERE, as well as some holiday sets from Essence, Sonia Kashuk, and more (I can't seem to find who submitted the tip about those e.l.f. sets on clearance; if it was you, please comment below so I can thank you!).
  • Also, if you are signed up to receive emails from Groupon, check your email this week because you may get an offer to buy a $10 Target gift card for $5 (limit 1 per customer). I'll link to the deal here here so you can see it, but please note that you will not be able to purchase through this link unless you received the invite from Target. So again, check your emails! For what it's worth, I received my email invite today, but others received it yesterday. So they may continue to send email invites throughout the week.

  • If you're a Prime member, you may be interested to know that the sample offer is back (exclusively for Prime members). For a limited time, you can click HERE to order various beauty samples and non-beauty samples (prices vary between $2 and $4 each) with free Prime shipping. Once your order ships, you'll receive the full purchase price of each sample back in Amazon credit, to be used on a future purchase of the same brand (note: Amazon will send you an email when your credit is in your account, and at the time you'll get a link to the qualifying purchases--there MAY be more qualifying purchases available than just the brands you sampled but I can't guarantee that). Amazon is very up front with the sizes of these samples, so there should be no surprises if you order. Don't wait too long if you're interested though, because the last time they ran this, some of the sample choices sold out before the event was over.
  • Also, the Amazon Prime-Members-Only Beauty Boxes (regular, Luxury, and Men's Grooming) are all in stock HERE as of the time of this post, if you haven't ordered them yet. You can see my unboxings here (and remember, you get the full purchase price of each box back in credit to be used on a future purchase of qualifying items).


  1. Thanks G! I was able to grab two Vichy samples from Amazon. Very excited!!

  2. This is the second month in a row they marked these Target boxes down. This makes me mad since most of us paid full price. This is not right. I guess I won't be buying them anymore when they come out and take my chances that they will have enough left over to get marked down.

  3. You are like Santaclaus! I get so excited everytime I get a message about a new post :)

  4. Took advantage of the Groupon deal. I too bought the beauty box for $10. It was a great box. I'm starting to wonder if I should wait next month for the reduced price.

  5. Thanks so much for the heads up on the groupon. I checked my deleted messages and there is was. I almost threw away $5 from Target. You are the greatest!!!

  6. Thanks so much for the info about the $10 Target gift card for $5 thru Groupon, I just made a purchase. Love your site, I visit at least 3 times a day, so much friendly money saving information!

  7. I didn't jump on this when it was first released. I'm debating now. What's the full-size item? Is it the face wash or the mascara?

  8. I am a bit disappointed in this blog lately. This used to be my go to blog for information on beauty deals, but she does not post like she used. Has anyone else noticed this too? Did she mention she wouldn't be as active on this blog and I missed it?

    1. Hi Amanda,

      I'm sorry that you feel that way. Today I posted a quick update as to why I have been way from the blog for three days:

      I hope that helps you to understand what was going on. I am not in any way trying to not be as active here as I was before--it's just that life sometimes get in the way of my blogging and I can't always control that. Thanks so much for your patience!

    2. The blog seems the same to me but as G said, sometimes life has other plans (for both G and some readers as well). The good thing about it is that we look out for each other and when G can't post for whatever reason, readers of the blog still post deals. Thanks to G and all who contribute to this blog!

  9. Thanks, G! I ordered this box once before and there was a $3 or $5 coupon (can't remember) included. Was there one in your Feb box?

  10. Smashbox has a buy one legendary lipstick get one free *valid 5 days*
    Macy's has a one day sale Anastasia lip gloss $8, philosophy one day gift set $10, urban decay lip gloss $11

  11. Is it new for Amazon to sell sample sized products for $2-4 like this? I guess it's nice that now you can select which samples you want. Although, is it a good deal compared to like in the past when they had the boxes already set? I think I will be skipping out this time since nothing really stood out to me.
