How I made use of Coupon Codes for Online shopping!

Hello Beauties,

Wanted to share a brief post on my online  shopping experience using the coupon codes available. Hope this helps everyone!
Lots of online shopping sites had these tempting offers for the Festival Diwali, one of them Medplus beauty had offer on cosmetics & I couldn't stop myself from getting a few things!

When I saw these offers & discounts, I spent an entire day zeroing on the stuff that I needed( I'm not a hoarder these days &I get stuff that I need because of the storage issue),calculating the amount I would save considering the budget that I had in mind & reading reviews online.

Medplus beauty had 25%  festive discount on Colorbar products & a discount of 40% on Maxfactor during their clearance sale in addition to discounts on other brands too! I chose Colorbar because I liked the Colorbar velvett Matte lipstick that Nisha sent me & I wanted to try a few more shades from the range,also I needed a Kohl so got one from Colorbar, I use a MaxFactor foundation & since it was running out I needed a back up so got the foundation.

Here's a picture of my order which also shows the actual price & the discounted price.

So for the lipstick worth Rs.250 I paid Rs.187.50 INR & for the Kohl priced Rs. 150 I paid Rs.112.50 & the foundation priced Rs.850 I paid Rs.510 INR.

The actual amount of the 3 products is Rs.1250 & I paid Rs.810 so I saved Rs.440 INR. Isn't that nice?

So I suggest, whenever you do online shopping do make sure you google search for coupon codes to save some bucks! There are lots of websites dedicated just for coupon codes, so don't forget to search for them.

For my International friends, there is a website Coupon Chief that caters to all your needs, browse through the site to get the best of the deals & grab them.
