I want to share with you what you can get from shopping at some of my favorite stores! I know you probably know better than me but for those who are not aware and or you’re interested to find out, here you go:

Open a Sephora membership card. For every 100 points you earn which equals to $100 you’ve spent, you’ll earn free gifts. The gifts varies as well, usually worth 100 points, 250 points, 500 points, 1000 points. You can save your points by claiming a nicer gift. They usually have it in mini sizes. Just like me, I got small size of the Dior show mascara. I think it’s the best mascara I have ever used!
Also, if you open a membership with Sephora you’ll receive birthday gift and can claim it anytime during your birthday month. On my last birthday, I got the tarte blush and I got to try it and compare it with another blushes instead of purchasing it.


If you’ve noticed, I wear so many clothing from this brand. And they have good rewards program as well. For every 200 points you’ve earned which equals to $200 spent, then you’ll get $15 gift card and you can use it towards Guess 4 brands: Guess, Guess factory, G by Guess and Guess Marciano. I use this bonus many times, I get many discounts and get free stuff, too. It’s the same as Sephora, I also receive $20 birthday giftcard that could be used at any of their 4 brands. On my birthday, I got huge discount on glasses I bought. I got them for only $16, it was originally priced at $82 then were put on sale for $32 at Guess Factory, because of my $20 birthday gift card, i didn’t have to spend that much money!

Macy’s is one of my favorite department store. Before I opened credit card with them, they were quite pricey. After I opened a credit card, I started savings big bucks. I usually get 20-25% on almost everything in addition to the coupons! If you spend significant amount per year you’ll be upgraded to Platinum and you’ll get 5% cash back. How awesome is that?
I remember, I bought Michael Kors bag 50% of the retail price! For birthday gifts it’s not as much you get as compare with the rest, I only got $10 off my purchase of $30 or more. Which I think was not a great of a deal.

I am not advertising nor affiliated nor paid to endorsed these stores. I am just sharing my thoughts and experiences and hoping you guys could benefit from.
