If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
-If you are looking to join the Julep Maven Subscription Box Program, view the latest sign-up offers. This page only lists information for shopping the website outside of the subscription. Mavens get 20% off (which applies automatically when you’re signed in) all full-price Julep products (not just polish). That means the starting price for a full-price polish is $14 for an average shopper, but $11.20 for a Maven. This discount combines with any of the promo codes listed below, so Mavens pay less for polish that has not been discounted. The Maven discount does not apply to items already discounted, so we all pay the same price for many of the deals discussed below.

–Julep polishes are thicker (and typically more opaque depending on the finish) than your average polish, so only apply one coat (when possible). If you apply one coat on top of a base coat and seal it with a top coat, you can go 7+ days chip free depending on how much you use/wash your hands. Each coat you apply reduces wear time, because it makes the application a lot thicker. When polish gets too thick, it peels away faster.
–Tips For Getting the Best Deal lays out every way I can think of to save money at Julep.
-Place sale items you want to buy later in your wish list. They sometimes stay on sale after they’re no longer easy to find. If they’re in your wish list, they’re easy to find. Reads articles regarding Sale Items: Cyber Monday.
-Julep releases a Sweet Steal each day. The offer changes daily and usually has an incredible value. Most promo codes will not work with the Sweet Steal, but they will work on most items purchased with the Sweet Steal. Read articles regarding Sweet Steals: Brown Eyed Girl.
-My favorite polishes are the Birthstone Collection. I’ve collected every shade from January 2014-December 2015. Read articles regarding the Birthstone Collection: January 2015, February 2015, March 2015, April 2015, May 2015, June 2015, July 2015, August 2015, September 2015, October 2015, November 2015, and December 2015.
-Instead of Birthstones, 2016 brings the Zodiac Collection. I am planning on purchasing every shade from this line. Read articles regarding the Zodiac Collection: Aquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Capricorn. For 2017, I only collected Pisces.
-The Secret Store is open the last three days of the month for Mavens who accepted an upcoming box. It is open the first three days of the month for all Mavens. Deals are at times better during the first first days, so arrive early if you accepted a box. If you purchase over $50 of Secret Store items in one shopping trip, you will get rewarded with 2000 Jules.

-The Savvy Deals or Specials sections are not always available, but items can be up to 75% off when they’re listed. Read articles regarding Savvy Deals/Specials: Katie, Fa La La, and Stargazer Plus Cuticle Stick.
–Mystery Boxes are limited time offerings that usually offer one or two items you know and extra items you will not know about. They cost $24.99 to $29.99 and almost always have a value over $100. If you are newer to Julep or do not mind getting possible duplicates, they are a great way to add to your collection. I will list them on the front page and below when I know of boxes available.
-When placing an order, you will get the opportunity to select deeply discounted items as add-ons. These prices are usually lower than adding a promo code to the full or Maven price, but that is not always the case. Price it both ways before adding them on.

-All Julep offer codes can be used twice per account. The codes stop working after the second use.
-New customers use code NEW10 for $10 off a $30 purchase.
