How to use coupons on your favourite beauty products
Is there such a thing as too much makeup? We certainly don’t think so! However, your bank balance may disagree with that sentiment when you’re hunting for just the right shade of lippy for a party… three days before payday. According to recent research, we’re spending an average of £482.51p per year on beauty items, including makeup, skincare products and accessories. While that may not seem like a lot those costs add up. So, how can we save more money on the products we love to buy? Why, with a coupon, of course!
Exercise your brand loyalty
Social media, loyalty cards and clubs, product packaging and e-newsletters are great places to start your search for savings since brands are often keen to reward loyal consumers with further discounts. You may also wish to try writing to a manufacturer with a complaint, compliment or opinion, or checking out multibuy offers when you get to the checkout. Beauty products can have hefty price tags, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any deals available once you do a little research.
Join the online revolution
Perhaps the best way to use coupons on your favourite beauty products is to sign up for an account with wedosavings.co.uk, a website dedicated to vouchers, discounts and price comparison. Keeping a track of countless coupons can be difficult. Wedosavings does all of the hard work, identifying bargains so that you can reap the rewards in the form of mass savings – up to 50%, in fact. The site, which also boasts an app, is absolutely free to join, although a monthly wedosavings direct debit of £9.99 will entitle you to enhanced membership and even further discounts on your favourite beauty buys.
Make a wish list
When it comes to couponing it’s always wise to make a wish list, ensuring you make the biggest savings on the items you actually want and need. Well, it can’t really be classed as a bargain if you’re buying something for the sake of it being on sale. Wedosavings uses a dedicated algorithm to scout the World Wide Web for the products you buy most often, and sends alerts and coupons based upon the preferences you listed when you signed up. If you’re a beauty worshipper you’ll be granted access to an Aladdin’s cave of lippies, skincare products and accessories. You’ll even receive an alert if a favourite item is on offer at a shop you’re about to pass. Wave ‘goodbye’ to hundreds of unwanted and unnecessary offers, and say, ‘hello’ to wish list items you’ll want to snap up.
Take heed of reviews
If an offer appears too good to be true, that may just be the case. Website and product reviews will enable you to make informed choices about your spending habits before you part with your money – and that includes couponing. Wedosavings has a dedicated reviews page, where members can rate the products and services that they’ve received so far. Wedosavings is a UK-based company dedicated to enriching the UK consumer’s experience, but that doesn’t mean you should take our word for it.
Whether you’ve clipped your coupons or received a voucher via email it’s always worth checking the small print to ensure your deals are valid alongside one another. What does the small print say, and how can your voucher be used? While some discounts are actively encouraged in conjunction with similar deals, others may specify differently.
For many of us beauty items are a necessity, but that doesn’t mean we should spend any more than we have to on those latest must-have products. Whatever it is you’re after you can bet there’s a coupon out there. Clipping coupons has become something of a pastime for many bargain hunters, but Wedosavings is making it increasingly easier for a gal to stay firmly attached to her cash. After all, what could be simpler than direct deals, moneysaving vouchers and brand comparison? Take a leaf out of many a shopper’s book and invest in a membership with your new favourite savings site and app; your makeup bag will thank you.
