Everyone needs makeup for back to school, right? RIGHT?
Unfortunately, some of us need it all the time, and don’t care whether it’s back to school or Hanukah, we’ll take whatever discount code we can get. But that’s neither here nor there…
Right now, you can get a whopping 10% cashback at Sephora, and 8% cashback at Philosophy thanks to the 2010 Back to School Promotion at Mr. Rebates. You can get an additional 10% off all orders at Philosophy (on top of the 8% cashback!), if you use the code upromise10 (good through 8/31). You get free shipping with orders over $50 at both places.
And in case you’re more interested in the “traditional” back-to-school items, there’s a whole slew of other stores with increased cashback rates in the current Mr. Rebates promo. A few examples include: Barnes and Noble (up from 4 to 6% — get your textbooks here), Buy.com from 1% to 4% (great for picking up a new laptop or graphing calculator), Shoebuy from 12% to 15% (shoes and backpacks, and all orders ship free), and Old Navy from 3% to 10% (stylish clothes for all ages).
In addition, by simply clicking through the Mr. Rebates links to any store, you may be one of their daily winners of an absolutely free Apple iPad! This promotion runs through August 31st.
And don’t forget — Mr. Rebates cashback rates are ON TOP OF any coupon or promo code you might use. I have never had cashback denied at Mr. Rebates, and I always combine cashback with coupons.
If you haven’t signed up for Mr. Rebates yet, I highly recommend it — Mr. Rebates is my FAVORITE cashback shopping site by far, with the highest rates on most stores, and an easy to use interface. All new users get a $5 sign up bonus, and the minimum you need to cashout is $10. Plus, they have a great referral program — instead of the usual fixed amount per person you refer, you get 20% of any cashback your referrals earn, forever!
