HSN Deal is Back: $20 off $40 + Free Shipping on LORAC, Benefit, Too Faced and More

Thanks so much to reader L's Channel for the comment yesterday about this one (she left her comment on my Mid-Week Beauty Deal Round-Up which you should definitely check out after this, since some Friends & Family sales have been extended!).

The Visa Checkout deal is back at HSN! And I believe that if you have used this offer before, you can use it again (I have yet to hear from anyone who has not been able to use it every time it's been offered). And you do NOT have to have a Visa to take advantage of this discount.

Here's the scoop, and I'll give you some ideas at the end of this post:


The Visa Checkout offer gives you $20 off $40 on any purchase on the HSN website (expires 6/21) with very few exceptions (see fine print below). This offer applies to beauty, and you can apply the discount to one item or a combination of items within a single transaction. All you need to do is select Visa Checkout during the checkout process and follow the instructions. Either click through this page to start shopping, or enter code 170835 at checkout. In the past, some of you have said that you didn't need to enter the code to get the discount after using Visa Checkout to pay, but I'm giving you the code just in case! You do NOT need to use a Visa card to get this discount. For more details about how Visa Checkout works, please click here.


Be sure that the $20 off $40 discount has been applied to your order before you submit your order. Once you see that the discount has been applied to your total, you're good to go. HOWEVER, for up to 24 hours after you have placed your order, you may see that HSN has reserved the full amount (minus the discount) on your bank statement. This is a known glitch within the HSN system and the discount will be reflected once your item ships (you're charged when your item ships, not before).

Coupon 170835 is a multi-item offer and is valid for $20 off your order of $40 or more (not including sales tax or shipping & handling). Coupon is only valid online at HSN.COM or HSN Mobile when you pay with Visa Checkout. Coupon can only be used once by its recipient. Coupon is automatically applied when you select Visa Checkout and order is placed. Coupon can only be applied to the first shipment of Auto-Ship items. The use of this coupon may disqualify the order from inclusion in other promotional offers or discounts. Coupons cannot be applied to or combined with other coupons. Coupon is not valid for charitable contributions, Minnetonka (18620), Birkenstock (14735), Taos footwear (19280), Toms(19120), Insolia/Vivian Lou (20203), the iRobot Roomba 880, Dyson products, Janome, Samsung large appliances, HSN gift cards, wines and alcohol, or clearance items. We reserve the right to cancel orders when unexpected coupon system errors occur or in the case of abuse, misuse or fraud in connection with the coupon number. Offer is valid 5/15/2017 - 6/21/2017. Coupon Expires on 6/21/2017 at 11:59 AM ET or when promotional redemption limit has been reached.

  • There are 39 pages worth of beauty items here that all come with free shipping. I highly recommend you select item(s) that come with free shipping, to maximize your savings! Also, many of these items come with Flex-Pay, which means you can break your payments up into 2 or 4 installments (one payment per month). Take some time to look through those pages for lots of products by Too Faced, Benefit, LORAC, Lancome, Artis, Smashbox, Cargo, Lord & Berry, Smith & Cult, Trish McAvoy, Korres, Dr. Brandt and more.

Thanks again, L's Channel, for the hot tip!



  1. Thank you, just order my Lorac unzipped at an unbeatable price of $22. You are awesome!!!!

    1. Aaaw, I'm so happy to help and I'm so glad you were able to get that palette at such a great price!! Enjoy! ❤

  2. I tried the deal on 2 beautyblenders but it didn't work. Went through visa checkout etc but got an error message saying the code wasn't valid on those products. Anyone else experience this issue?

    1. I believe that some people have received this error message in the past, even after putting qualifying items in their cart. I seem to recall that they were able to get the discount after calling customer service and explaining what happened, so please do give that a try!

    2. I'm having the same issue.

    3. I reached out to their customer service and they indicated at least one of the items need to be over $40. I was attempting to order 2 items adding up to more than $40 and that is why it was not working for me.

    4. Oh gosh, thank you for this! I wasn't aware that they changed the terms of that deal since previously you could order multiple items that added up to $40 to get the discount. What a bummer!!

  3. Thank you! I've been lusting after the Natural Love pallete.

  4. Hey G.,
    Do you know that how many discount order that I can make from 1 visa card? I want to buy a few things and I don't know would it be eligible to have multiple orders ~

  5. I got the same error when I used PayPal but it worked when I used Visa Checkout.

  6. I've found it will only work for me if one item is $40+ rather than a combo of items to reach over $40.

  7. Thanks G! I ordered the Too Faced Natural Love palette! 😀🙌🏻

  8. Yay!! Thank you so much G!! Glad you are back to help me save a great deal on the Pirates palette!! I am thinking of buying the pirate lip duos as well, but maybe next week on my pay day. Thank you so much. God Bless!! (:

  9. They just told me the same thing. I have to have one item over $40 in my cart in order for it to work.

  10. I finally got customer service to help me place an order on Saturday and now my order history states "no orders in past 30 days"! What a FOI off! 😡

  11. After customer service helped get my order to work on Saturday, now it's missing from my order history! Not happy! 😡
