Sephora’s Black Friday Crash, Pepper Spray Woman & Last Minute Holiday Deals

Are you among the blessed few who got into Sephora’s website before it crashed last night? Beauty junkies gone wild! Such epic fail. I think Sephora underestimated our hunger pangs for that 10 for 10$ each Black Friday deal. This morning, I finally got in only to see those that I want to buy gone. Of course! By mid-day, Sephora issued an apology to irate customers by offering FREE SHIPPING at $25 purchase (online code SHIPNOW), a sneak peek of its Cyber Monday deals, and a free YSL compact mirror as part of its Fan Friday promotion (in limited quantities though). Now if you have e-bates, use it to get 10% cash back today. I am hoping this can be extended ’til Cyber Monday to make up for the inconvenience, eh?

Pepper Spray Woman is trending today. Nope, it’s not the latest brand of perfume to hit the stores. It’s about a mom from Los Angeles, CA who pepper sprayed other customers so she can get the Xbox 360 all to herself. Twenty shoppers from that ill-fated Walmart branch got injured. Over here in Hawaii, a woman claims she had been punched in the face as people got crazy with discounted towels. Horror of horrors. This Black Friday should be renamed Black Eyed Friday. That’s the very reason I shop online- no mad crowd to deal with.

If you still have moolah left, here are some more Black Friday deals I got from  e-mail today. Most are running ’til Sunday or Monday….

Philosophy: Up to 50 % off Holiday Sale. Free shipping  with promo code blackfriday

The Body Shop: 3 Items for $30 (My tip: pick the most expensive item to get the most out of this promo). Excludes gift sets, gift cards and charitable items.

Macy’s: Free digital video camera with $65 any perfume purchase. Free shipping at $50 for beauty & fragrance.

Ulta: 2 Day Savings (Nov 25-26) Branded makeups as low as $10

All these deals will make anyone broke, seriously.

Shop wise everyone. 

P.S. I’m on my second day of eating nothing but turkey leftovers.  Time to get creative with cooking! I’m thinking shredded adobo turkey tomorrow….
