My StrawberryNET Buys | 5% + 8% OFF + FREE Shipping + Gift = Happy Camper

By Blessmybag @blessmybag

Like a cool cobra in the shadows I was waiting for just the right moment to strike and restock on my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer.  That moment came around when a StrawberryNET  “We Miss You” Discount email alert came in (it comes when you’ve taken awhile to purchase again with them), promising an additional 8% on top of an exising 5% loyalty discount I already have plus a 1% discount if I chose 2 products.  So given that 14% discount plus the lowered Php value of the US$ in the past weeks (41 to 1) I knew today was the day!  I also remembered that this is the last day (you’ve got time) to avail of a special Korres gift with purchase.  In my life I’ve consumed 2 full tubes of LM Tinted Moisturizer, it’s been the go-to item I throw in my bag for outings where I don’t want people visually nitpicking at what I have on.  It evens out my complexion, knocks out the need to “prep”, I can put it on with hands, and it makes me look fresh without shouting “makeup”.  I ran out of it at the beginning of this year and this time I chose the oil-free formula because reportedly, Kate, aka the Duchess of Cambridge, was spotted buying a tube of it shortly before the Royal Wedding Day (in which she did her own makeup).

I also had been planning to put money down for a very long time on my first ever NARS blush via StrawberryNET HK.  I actually wanted NARS Madly, but it was gone when I checked this time and I thought MAC’s Trace Gold which I own is already quite like that so it was fine that I couldn’t have that.   So I decided on NARS Zen which is the MAC Harmony of the NARS world or quite like NARS Laguna without the golden shimmer.  Don’t get me wrong I don’t have anything against pink or peach I’m just on a neutral kick right now.  So all in all this was a strategic maneuver to avoid the overhead markup of local cosmetic counters.  Because the items I chose were not ON-sale items on StrawberryNET they still had on-hand markup, like LM Tinted Moisturizer is US$42 (Php1720) on the LM website but without discounts on Strawberry NET it’s $54 and the NARS blush on the NARS site is US$28 but here it was listed for $32.  Directly from the brand sites both items in total would cost $70 but that’s not inclusive of the steep shipping fees.  Wait, I know what you’re thinking “then WTH did you save if StrawberryNET had markup?”, I’m almost there…LOL, before you think I’m a twit let me finish.  So basically what my 14% discount did was knock out the StrawberryNET on-hand markup and bring the $86 StrawberryNET total of both items down to a grand total of $74.  It’s as if I was able to buy both items directly from BOTH brand websites without any shipping fees or overhead mark-up PLUS I got a KORRES compact powder of $44 value for free.  For the Korres compact I deliberately picked a darker shade because I was running out of pressed powder for dark skin in my professional kit.  So to wrap up, I paid under Php3100 for both an LM Tinted Moisturizer and a NARS blush plus I got a Korres gift with purchase!  What I absolutely love about StrawberryNET is discounts can be compounded, so these discounts apply even on top of already discounted Christmas specials available right now on the site.  It just turns out what I wanted weren’t on sale in the end.  Today’s the last day for the gift with purchase offer and if you’re a StrawberryNET shopper you may have overlooked the “We Miss You” discount if you haven’t shopped for awhile, so better check your inboxes!
