I receive coupons from Victoria’s Secret maybe once every month. These coupons are so valuable that I don’t want to miss using them, luckily for me I am just ten minutes away from the mall so I can just go there anytime I want or when I’m free.
However, the last visit I had in their store with coupons on hand, I kind of messed up. They did not allow promo priced bras to be included for receiving the hobo bag. I bought two bras worth $50 and two free panties but did not get the bag. I was so disappointed and chose to keep the bras, did not return anything instead.
Wished I had known that online deal was way better than my local VS store. Some VS shoppers got more and paid less of what I paid for mine just because buying discounted bras online was allowed.
The day after I purchased my bras, there was a glitch online and took advantage of that just to get the boho bag. I bought 2 $25 gift cards online with free shipping and used a code for the bag. Viola! Came with the bag and the gift cards is another $20 coupon which I am going to use in my next VS purchase. I have two of this coupon so I am ready of what comes next!
I got a couple of sport bras from Victoria’s Secret already but when I see a sale on it, I would still buy one or two. It would be ridiculous to continue buying them while I already have some, right? Well, I am thinking, I have a 9 years old girl that is growing fast, soon enough she will be needing bras so when I saw on a couponing blog a really good promo code combos, I went ahead and buy two sports bras, one XS and the other is small size for my daughter and younger sister.
At that time I purchased the items pictured below, PINK had a promo of 20% single full priced item and a free shipping $25 or over PLUS a free kimono with two full-priced bras with the use of a code. Sport bras cost $15 each and a kimono that surely overly-priced if I had to buy it in full.
Anyway, three items totaling only $28+ including tax and free shipping with the use of three different codes for the free kimono, 20% off less bra and free shipping. Tell me if it is not a sweet deal right there?
As you may have known, I am or have been reviewing products since 2008. Either paid or receiving free items, I am willing to do it. I have countless reviews over the years and I must say, I have become better at what I am doing.
Doing the thing I love most somehow gives me skills and knowledge to properly examine the products that the seller or advertisers entrusted me to do. Some weren’t happy of the feedback or review I gave them but then, honesty is all I can give when it comes to reviewing their products for the sake of their prospect buyers/customers. Because, I myself, would rely on other/previous customers’ feedback if I were to buy something that cost a tremendous amount of money.
One of the perks of being a reviewer is that the free items you actually get that you love to use or wear. Example is this boy shorts swim with matching strappy bra top and a cover up. It is a stylish set that has a beautiful pattern that I chose for myself.
I was not disappointed for it fits right, hugs my body and yes, I am comfortable with it. You see, I got to pick the style I want, color or design and all it takes is my honest review after testing the product. I hope I made the seller happy with it.
I am a mom of two and I love feeling good inside out. Being a mother and a full-time housewife does not mean you let yourself go or look “lusyang” since what you do is run a household and take care of your family. That’s a big no no for me.
One of the things I do in order to look good for myself is wearing current, trendy yet affordable clothes. I also love showing my patriotism to this great country, and with that being said, fashion and patriotism combined in one clothing, yes please! I am into that.
I so love anything patriotic, whether it be undies, cover-ups, tops or dresses. I am attracted to this kind of fashion. One of which is the cover-up I recently bought from Amazon. I find it appealing and so I knew I am gonna love this clothing once I get it, I am right. It is soft, comfy to the skin, the size fits perfect in me and most of all, it’s the American flag!
I got a few US flag tops in my closet and I am waiting for the right time to wear them, show them that I am a proud United States law abiding citizen!
I am 32 at the moment yet I don’t let this number keep me from buying and wearing trendy tops. I don’t have a thin body nor a sexy bony-showing back but I love wearing open-back tops. It is because, in my mind and in my heart, I don’t feel 32.
I don’t get attracted to tops that look vintage or too oldie. No, if I wear those, it’s like I am declaring to the world that I am getting old, haha. Just my own opinion. No offense please.
Anyway, I am glad I now have this real cute open-back long sleeves from Amazon and it truly is comfortable. I could wear this every time I go to the mall or a dinner with my family if not for its neon pink color. I have dark skin tone and I get even darker if I wear this often.
It is a current trend and it’s even cuter when paired with the right bra. I saw other reviewers on Amazon posting photos of themselves fitting on this top wearing a cami, like ladies, seriously??
I tell you what, I can go to the mall and not spending any dime for items I wear and use everyday, instead, bringing them home for free. Loyalty to one’s store pays off, once you become their loyal customer, rest assured, you will get many freebies ahead of you!
I don’t buy my panties anymore. Most of them are free from PINK by Victoria’s Secret. My bras are all PINK too, although I did not get them for free but at least, I got them at discounted items plus a whole lot more free stuff from them. Same goes with lotions from Bath and Body Works store. I have a couple of travel size BBW lotions free from them as well.
Here’s I do it.
1. Become a member by applying for a Victoria’s Secret or Pink credit card. You can apply in person at their store or online.
2. When you shop in-store, do not hesitate to provide your email and physical address so they can track your purchases and so they can send you brochures, coupons and other promos to your home address in the future.
3. The more you shop, the more you get coupons from them. Once you have your VS credit card, always swipe it for points. Certain points earned will be equivalent to certain reward card in the future when you reach the threshold they set for you.
4. Also, if you choose to shop online. Sign up on EBATES and search for your favorite store through their site to earn cashback when you check out successfully. First time members, receive $ too!
As for Bath and Body Works, it pretty much work the same way as Victoria’s Secret since they are sister companies only I don’t hold a BBW credit card but I do provide my email to them when they ask in store plus I have been a long time customer to this store so coupons arrive in our mailbox once in a while.
….. PINK panties and BBW lotion I got for free the other day with the use of coupons they sent me to our home address. That is $20 plus savings there for both items.
I’ve been back to Old Navy store twice already. It is not my habit to go back to the store and shop a lot of clothing but when I find real deep discounts on clothing and shoes for the kids, I wouldn’t mind driving there twice or more.
Last Friday last week, Old Navy had a promotion buy 2 clearance items get 1 free. That promo only lasedt for three days. I was able to avail that on Friday, bought quite a lot of slippers, boy shorts and some adult tops starting from 47 cents up to a little over $5. I spent only $27 plus that day plus I got a $10 Old Navy super cash certificate.
Yesterday I went back again and I was not disappointed. I found more awesome merchandise that are less than a dollar each. More shorts for the boys, slippers and slip on shoes for both girls and boys, some shorts for the girls at 47-97 cents. Imagine how amazing that is? Although the buy 2 get 1 free item promo has ended, I still think I got a good deal on my second haul. Some of which will be shipped to my relative in Oregon for she requested me to buy some for her siblings too.
…. photo below are just 97 cents per pair. Ever wonder why I bought a lot of this? Well, they will go into my balik-bayan box to be sent to my brother and nephews in the Philippines.
… shorts and t-shirts for my little brother, 47 cents each, a dollar for the t-shirts.
…. stylish little girls’ shoes for 97 cents, shorts 97 cents for the girls. I should say, boys shorts are 50 cents cheaper than girls and they are thick and comfy materials.
Look what I found on DSW website? This is probably one of the cutest crossbody bags I own now. I love it’s hot pink color ( photo don’t show and don’t do justice) and the first pink color bag I bought.
Sometimes it pays to be patient and wait until you hit the deal. Before I could purchase this thing, I eyed on it for a few days and so wanted to buy it right away but had a hard time using my coupon certificate on their website so, that somehow, delayed me from checking this out. Well, the odd was in favor of me because two days after I itched buying it, DSW offered 25% off promo for their entire site including clearance or sale items and take note free shipping too. BOOM! How I liked that?
If I didn’t wait, I could have paid more for this item than the price I got it for. Imagine this crossbody bag retails from $39.99 and only paid $10 plus tax final price after site promo and a coupon certificate worth $20! Ain’t that sweet? I am happy because the thing I really want finally in my closet for a fraction of a price than what most people normally pay. It’s sooo cute and beautiful!
Now is the perfect time to shop for clothes for you and your entire family especially for your kids. One of my favorite destinations to shop for clearance is Old Navy. When we say, clearance, their merchandise is truly marked down to like they almost give it away.
You just have to take your time and have patience when shopping for clearance. There are plenty to choose from and some of the mark down items are buried deep under the not so deal items. As temperatures get dropping down, stores are also getting rid of their previous merchandise so you really need to head on to your fave store and start shopping for next summer’s outfit.
As for my haul yesterday, I found quite a lot on women’s section to be cheap. Two of my favorite finds are the blue hound’s tooth dress for under $8 and a beautiful beige/faux snakeskin body bag which I love a lot. It was marked down half price off and so I grabbed it. If the bag was sold at less than $15 and it isn’t as beautiful as the one I’m wearing below, I would even bother spending my money on it. But man, when I laid eyes on it, thought this bag was gorgeous for half off price.
Other stuff I found was 47 cents women’s sleeveless shirts, 2 summer dresses for my 7 year old kid, one long sleeves and two other top for my mother which are under $2 each. I paid a little over $32 for everything plus a $10 Old Navy supercash good for next shopping trip.
I am happy with my haul and yes, would love to go back there again sometime soon.
