Here’s my latest haul from Victoria’s Secret. Seven bottles of VS mists and two clearance bras, all for $11.14 including shipping and tax of course. How did I come with the amount? Read on.
I was lucky to receive (1) $50 secret reward card last December so I bought a $40 gift card in order to avail the semi-annual clearance sale since the secret reward card had expired December 19, the semi-annual sale did not start until Jan. 1. Also, I had (2) $10 Pink reward card for any Pink purchase which I used towards the two bras. Total amount for 9 items is $66 that is not including tax and shipping. The two Pink cards by the way were sent from them for me because they have upgraded my status from regular member to being a VIP.
You see, there are many ways to save on things here, all you got to do is find them on the internet. As for me, I join FB group that is composed of mostly Filipinas that love to share links of deals either online or in-store. I check the group from time to time because we never know deals could pop out any moment.
It pays to be on the internet most of the day because of the deals on clothing, fragrances, housewares and many more. I can’t count how many I have taken advantage of in the past, thanks to this awesome group I belong for it tells me when deals are happening.
I love my Victoria’s Secret haul yesterday. I went to their store with 7 secret reward cards on hand and an electronic code they sent to me in my email. I lost one card, I don’t know where it is so I only bought 7 gift sets total. It cost $10 each normal price and used $10 secret reward card each transaction which only cost me 83 cents each.
I guess I went there on time before everyone else buy the gift sets. It is really cheap for the price of 83 cents, that’s literally just tax I paid for. As you can see in the photo below, each gift set containing three 60 ml bottles of fragrance mists and three 60 ml moisturizing hand and body cream. I so love love what I bought.
You might wonder what am I gonna all this? No problem. They don’t spoil, they last forever. I can very well use the moisturizing hand and body cream since it gets very cold and dry due to winter. One gift set will be given to my Jadyn’s teacher and I’ll keep the rest or send some to the Philippines. I feel like I won a little Christmas prize hehe. Thank God I was able to buy this stuff. Last year was a waste of time and money, I only bought that pink glitter mist which is $8. A lot of $2 gone wasted or I spent more on bras rather than saving some $$.
The best destination when it comes to holidays like Labor Day is the mall! I am talking as if I have unlimited budget, lol. Well, if you are a thrift shopper, you will go wander around the mall and take your time to dig for really deep discounts on whatever it is you are thinking of buying.
Here’s my deals today. First stop was CVS pharmacy and did not expect to find these white Gildan men’s shirt in their clearance rack, 90% off the original price which was 3/$12. Final price, it costs me 40 cents each. Only 5 pieces left so I bought them all for my balik-bayan box to send to the Philippines. If my brothers don’t want them, plenty of my cousins and uncles who will want them.
Another purchase that I think I got me a discount are these two PINK bralettes. I am in need of them to make me feel comfortable for my walking exercise. They would make a great cover up of my flesh under a roomy tank for walking or working out at the gym in the future. Full-priced $19.95 each and I made it down to $10.77 each including tax due to store coupons that I received when Victoria’s Secret sent me catalogs in the mail. Not only that, I also snagged me two FREE undies by using free underwear coupons! How sweet is that?
While a lot of customers are partying on 7/$26.50 panties, I don’t. Why buy if I could have free panties?
What about you folks? What did you do on Labor Day? Did you find great deals too? Don’t be shy to share them in my comment section.
I scored a deal on these two items photographed below at Victoria’s Secret using two coupons, a $10 off a bra over $25 and a free lace hiphugger panty and a $10 secret reward card. Paid $11.11 including tax for these, not bad. It could have been over $30 if I didn’t use coupons and card. I love the bra especially, it’s Pink and it’s the only line of VS bras that I could wear. It is comfortable, stylish, fits me well plus it’s lacey which every woman wants rather than plain boring bras.
I lost track as to how many undies I received from them for free. You know when you are loyal to their store, you can expect freebies coming now and then. I love freebies, make me want to come back to their store and shop again and again for I know I will receive something cool and awesome from Victoria’s Secret.
I honestly don’t buy other brands of underwears from other retailers. Yes, I am a loyal and diehard shopper of VS so, let those freebies comin’ baby!
A lot of avid Victoria’s Secret shoppers out there probably possess several secret reward cards and are wondering how are they gonna redeem them all before they expire. Are you one of them? Here is a deal idea for you that won’t let you spend big amount “out of pocket” since VS don’t allow using two or more secret reward cards in one transaction.
For first transaction, I’d suggest you go to their physical store and buy a PINK mist for $8 and a pair of PINK flip flops for only $5 (originally $14.50) with any PINK purchase for a limited time. Use $10 secret reward card, pay out of pocket $4+ tax. Each cost you $2, final price.
For second transaction, if you have that $10 off a bra and free cotton panty coupons, now is the best time to redeem them. Buy a pair of flip flops, PINK bra $29.99 or 2/$42 and pair it with a $10 secret reward card. Pay $15 or $27 plus tax.
However, if you don’t have a bra coupon, you should be fine doing with just transaction #1. Hurry though for the pink flip flops have only limited quantities, once they are gone… they’re gone in-store. You will be lucky if you shop online and you get your size but the only con though is that you have to pay for shipping fee.
This is what I like about living in here in America for I get to receive freebies from my favorite shopping stores! I felt the luckiest on Valentine’s Day for I got to redeem two freebies from Victoria’s Secret and Bath and Body Works. I snagged me this sexy lacy hearts V-day thong ( I am not a thong girl so I might just give it to a friend in the Philippines who wears it) and a full size diamond shimmering mist Mad About You that costs $14 each.
I looooveeeeeeeee freebies, who doesn’t? Bath and Body Works promo was free diamond shimmering mist of any purchase. I brought with me my second born to the mall and she liked the bath ducky with blinking light inside so I bought it for her, $4 and I received my freebie. As for the thong, it didn’t cost me a dime… yupzie!!
I bought these 15 bottles of Victoria’s Secret lotions and mists two weeks ago at the mall for only $1.99 each regularly priced for $12. The store sells them for 5/$30 in normal days. These new fragrances marked down below $2 during their last or final days of semi-annual sale. I am glad I got to purchase 15 bottles for my balik-bayan box. I paid a total of over $32 for all these.
I did not care much as to what scent I should get because I am not using them, anyway, all the scents are good so I just grabbed the bottles from the shelf and checked out. I hope whoever can receive one from me will appreciate the lotion or mist as it is expensive in the Philippines, costs at least 700 pesos a bottle and to think they’ll get it free from me… hmmm nothing is better than that. Of course, I only pick the people whom I give it to. As I had enough of ungrateful people in the past. I gave some chocolates and a small bottle of lotion to a friend and instead of thanking me, she said “MAO RANI?” Heck, she is lucky I included her in the budget.
I am a bit disappointed to know that the flannel PJ set I have been wanting to buy at Victoria’s Secret is still expensive for me to think that they are having a semi-annual sale right now yet the cost of the set is the same price before Christmas.
I have waited for the sale to come but guess, I did not buy it. Instead, I opted to these cute little things photographed below for so little money I paid to buy them. Thanks to a generous friend who e-gifted me with $25 in VS. They are worth a total of $41.41 including tax and shipping but only paid $6.41 final price.
The body scrub alone, the price is $10, Jet set portable make up kit on sale for $17.99 originally $35 and the glossy tint lip sheen for $3.99. I used the $25 egift and a $10 coupon that the store sent me weeks ago, that is how I came up with the $6.41 for all three items.
It was my first time to purchase a make up kit for I am not into make ups, this beautiful kit will go to my balik-bayan box so my sister can use it whenever she has activities in school that requires her to apply make up on the face. The tint lip sheen I am going to use for sure, it is recommended by a friend and I rely on her testimony that it can somehow enhance my lip appearance once applied, we’ll see.
I love it when I score great deals on beautiful things. You see, there are ways to shop and not pay a whole price for it. You just have to find out how or be smart to take advantage of the sale and coupons. That’s one of the many things I learned living here in the States. Why pay full price if you can get them for such little money, right?
Woooooooohoooooooo another freebie online I got, a fragrance gift set by Victoria’s Secret, a $50 value! Head on to their site now. Purchase a pair of slipper sock for $10 then add item number VG-307-373. Use the promo code FA1339037 (for free fragrance gift set, save $50). Pay shipping $5.99 and tax, final amount will be $16.99 or depending what state you are residing but you will receive a secret reward card for it so it will be like getting two items for free in the future.
Grab this deal now people, deals like this don’t come too often so better do it now. Worry the payment later, lol. Don’t forget to shop thru EBATES for 2% cash back shopping at Victoria’s Secret!
I went to shop at the V.S store yesterday in the mall and did not plan spending more than $15 but I ended up buying two Pink bras. The temptation was hard to resist. I had a $10 bra coupon with me plus they offer a promo when you buy two any bras, you’ll get a free tote… that is without a minimum purchase.
I paid a bit over $50 for two bras, after using my coupon and got my silver bottom Victoria’s Secret tote and a SECRET REWARD card. I am okay if I just have $10 in my reward card and hopefully reduced that amount spent to $40. Promos like that doesn’t always come because they usually require customers to shop at least $65 or higher in order to qualify for a free tote.
I am happy with the tote because it looks prettier from the outside and is spacious inside. Although there is no velcro or magnetic closure, it is good enough to carry all essentials when traveling. This lovely tote will go to my mother and hope she likes it as I do.
Whenever I go shop for under garments or lingerie, I often thought of my sister, so the pink lacey bra will go to her. It is cute and is perfect for her age. I love her to death that is why I don’t hesitate buying her stuff for I know that makes her happy, besides, she is a person that knows how to appreciate the things that are given to her.
