Are you a victim of beauty savings? I can’t specifically say that I am. I do look for the best deals on makeup and clothes and occasionally I indulge on something I desperately want, but I don’t ever go out and specifically buy products just to get a free gift.
So what’s the deal, literally? Often times, big name brands will have a Bonus Gift time when, if you spend a certain amount, you can get a little swag bag full of pint sized products for you to try. Awesome, right? Maybe once or twice. But the people that get these every time they are available? I just don’t understand.
Take my mother for instance. Now my mother will go and look at counters specifically to see what their deal is. If it’s something good for her, she’ll buy something in order to get the gift…which we hardly ever use. So what is the point of getting the deal other than the 18 (sort of cute) cosmetic bags they come in.
Then there are those who only shop the sales rack, or will buy new clothes just because there’s a sale going on. As long as you’re saving money, it doesn’t matter if you don’t need what you buy? Or if you only buy what’s on sale, never finding what you really want.
So what is the point? To save money on what you don’t want? Maybe I’m crazy, but to me it makes much more sense to find great pieces (for a decent price) than spend not that much less on clothes that are on sale for a reason. That being said, I do love saving money, and 2-for-1 specials always catch my eye.
Lovelies, are you sales and savings crazy? Would you rather wait and get a great piece or only shop the sales rack?
