My favorite shopping event of the year is finally here. This weekend, which kicks before Thanksgiving with some retailers, provides some of the best deals we will see. Traditionally, this is the weekend where most retailers cross over from red to black, and they will do whatever it takes to earn your shopping dollars. Offers are competitive, because almost every retailer will have one. I will update this every time I see an incredible offer through Cyber Monday, so this list will grow over the week. My tastes might vary from yours, so make sure you sign up for emails from all of your favorite retailers. It is also a good idea to check multiple blogs and sites to see what each of them feel is worth mentioning this season. Most of these offers go out to all customers. Of course, there might be some affiliate exclusives or offers targeted to select customers. I am not listing any small offers, because this is the time of year when we can stretch our budget further by scoring just the right deal. Some big offers will not make the cut either, because I cannot list them all.
Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894 when Grover Cleveland (some dispute giving him credit) declared we needed an annual celebration of workers and their achievements. This was during the height of the Industrial Revolution, so employees were really making an impact on the economy. It was not uncommon for workers to endure 12 hour shifts, seven days a week. No one was immune, not even children. Since weekends did not exist for these workers, Labor Day was a welcome and extremely brief reprieve for our ancestors who brought us into a new millennium. Though must of us do not have the work ethic of our forefathers, and thank goodness for that because there is more to life than earning money, Labor Day is still an important part of our society.
I got an email on 07/05/16 stating there is a 25% sale. A lot of cute items are on sale. The box below is still out of stock, but a smaller version of the box, which has the sunglasses, the lip pencil, and the nail polish are still in stock. It is considered the “Best of” the original box. My favorite part of the original box and the best value is the sunglasses. This one is $16.99. Code PS10 gives another 10% off. There may be a better discount code available. I do not have any affiliation, so I do not have access to a better code. The 20NOW code I used in January is expired.
I had never even heard of PEOPLEshop before even though I know a lot of magazines sell items. A BTer (member of Sephora’s Beauty Forum) told me about this Limited Edition The Voice Gift Box for $19.99. It has a $150 value. At first, I almost passed, because I do not drink coffee, rarely wear jewelry, already own Myriam, purchased replacement konjac sponges the day before she shared this deal, and already have a few LAQA pencils meaning the unspecified color that arrives in the box could be one I already own. As I looked over the contents of the box, it hit me that it would make a great gift for the Mother-in-Law. Her birthday is just around the corner, too. The glasses alone are worth the cost of the box as long as they work with your face shape, so I decided to get one for myself as well. Who cannot use another pair of glasses?
