From October 15-18, Saks Fifth Avenue is having its fall Friends & Family event. With a few "luxury" exceptions, you can receive a 10% discount on all beauty and fragrance products, 20% off jewelry, and 25% off most merchandise in store and online. If you order online, use the code FRIENDS3 at checkout.
As a rule, you cannot call a Saks store to order and receive the Friends & Family discount; you have to show up in store or order from Saks.com. However, Best Things in Beauty (BTiB) readers can receive the Friends & Family discount - on anything you order (beauty/any brand, handbags, whatever you need or want) - by calling the Armani counter at Saks Chevy Chase and giving them the code C00000700V6 (those are zeros). This code is only available by calling (240) 497-5206. The Armani Beauty Team will assist you with your purchase, make sure you get the discount, and mail your order (there may be a shipping charge or tax, depending on your state of residence). Pre-sale starts soon, so you can call a few days in advance. Friends & Family days will be hectic.
This is a fabulous deal, particularly for those who don't live near a Saks store. The Armani Beauty Team takes extraordinary care of BTiB readers. I'm so grateful to them for the special giveaways and now this! Amazing customer service!
Start thinking about what you need (new Armani lipstick, anyone?), particularly products that are never discounted. It's a great time to stock up. I'm making my list.
