Regrett - to get free shipping on fragrances all you have to do is buy anything else - any skincare, make up, body care products - anything but fragrance and they'll send the whole lot free. If you don't want something, maybe someone in your life can have a gift (at no cost to you). Or, there's plenty of charities who would love your leftovers at the beginning of December.
I buy my Clinique deodorant through Strawberrynet - it's half the price than IF
I could find the stick in Adelaide; factor in the shipping and the loyalty bonus and I'm getting it for next to nothing.
Today, for less than $11 you can buy Anna Sui eye gloss; Elizabeth Arden lipstick; and Laura Mercier eye shadow. Add the discount and you're in front. I don't see any problem.
(Why $11? Because the maximum shipping charge is $10 - spend $10 on anything else, and you're not paying shipping).
