Discovering the best deals online can often feel like finding a needle in a haystack, which is especially disenchanting when it comes to your favorite website. At Dermstore, we know the online savings struggle is real, which is why we have created numerous options for you to save money on our site. From email subscriptions to reward programs, we offer something for each customer’s unique interest. Become the savvy Dermstore shopper that you were always meant to be with these money-saving tips!

1. Try New Products for Free

A Gift with Purchase (GWP) is a free gift based on what you bought and is the perfect way to sample and discover new beauty products. This becomes crucial when you hear of a beauty product that seems like a good match for you, but aren’t quite sure how your skin will react to it. From serums to shaving creams, there’s a GWP for every beauty enthusiast. Some shoppers like the excitement in not knowing what free gift they’ll get until they see it in the package, but if you’re the kind who likes to plan ahead, check out this page, which lists all the GWPs available for you.

Note: Some of these gifts have a minimum threshold. Once you meet the threshold, your free gift should automatically appear in the checkout page.

2. Get Email-Exclusive Deals

Not a Dermstore email subscriber yet? You’re missing out! By signing up for our email, not only will you get an instant 20% savings on your first purchase, you’ll also get first dibs on sales, free gifts and insider info on new product arrivals. And here’s another secret: Some beauty brands don’t like publicizing their discounted rates on the public site, so we sometimes send email-only access to certain brand sales. Shhhh! Sign up here to start receiving our email-exclusive deals!

3. Subscribe to Your Staples

So you have a skin, hair or makeup product that you just have to have no matter what. Guess what—you can save on them, too! Our Dermstore Subscriptions program lets you order your beauty staples once, and have those automatically shipped to you—for free of course—at your preferred schedule. That way, you don’t need to worry about running out of your favorite products and you get to save 15% on those products every time, too! Sounds like a win-win in our book.

To subscribe to any product, simply go to that product’s page on Dermstore.com and check the “subscribe” button. You’ll then be prompted to choose your refill cycle. After you’ve chosen the right cycle for you, click “add to cart” and check out as usual. You will not be charged until your order ships. You can also modify, skip or cancel subscriptions at any time.

4. Get Rewarded Just by Shopping

As if shopping for beauty products isn’t rewarding already. At Dermstore, we take rewards a little bit further by offering Dermstore Rewards. This cool incentive lets you earn 5 points for every dollar you spend on our site. And for every 100 points, you get $1 to spend on any beauty product of your choice! The best part? You can combine your Dermstore Rewards with all other offers and promotions. Plus, it’s free and simple to join. Sign up today and start getting more bang for your beauty buck!

5. Spread the Word

Read anything that you liked on the blog? Shared a video or photo from our Facebook or Instagram feed? You get points for that too! By liking and sharing our blog and social posts, not only do you spread valuable insider tips and info on beauty brands and products, you also earn Dermstore Rewards. A perfect excuse for dusting off your Insta account!

6. Create a Favorites List

At Dermstore, we’ve made it easy for you to keep tabs on your favorite beauty products. Each time you “heart” a product (by clicking the “Add to Favorites” button on the product page), that product will automatically get added to your My Favorites list, so you can always come back to it when you’re ready to make a purchase. The best part? When you place your order from your My Favorites page, you get an extra 10% off!*

7. Utilize the 30-Day Money Back Guarantee

We get it: shopping for beauty products online can be tricky. What if you get the wrong shade of foundation? Or realize that the cream you bought isn’t the best match for your sensitive skin? That’s why we offer a 30-day money back guarantee. If you’re unsure about a product, just buy it, try it, and if you don’t like it, just return it for something else. We’ll give you a full refund or exchange it for another product. You’ll only need to pay for the return shipping. Refer to our return page for additional return policy details.

8. Specials Tab

At Dermstore, we run sales and promos every day—no kidding! If you want to see all of our existing deals, check out the “specials” tab on our site’s top navigation bar. Most shoppers love starting here first, where they find 20 to 60% off on everything from makeup palettes to hairstyling tools to creams and serums to help you maintain your daily routine.

9. Chat With Our Customer Service Team

Need more information about all our product and promo offerings? Our customer service team offers a wealth of information, and they’re available Mondays through Saturdays through email, phone or live chat!
