Nordstrom: Buy 3 Mascaras, Get 1 of Them Free

Nordstrom’s Mascara Event is here! Buy any three mascaras, get one free (lowest-priced will be automatically deducted from your total at checkout).  If that language is confusing, when you buy two, you get one (the third) free with the lowest-priced one being the free mascara.  The event includes mascaras from high-end brands, even ones like Chanel, Dior, and Tom Ford along with Hourglass, Lancome, Too Faced — seriously, there are 165 different ones to choose from.  This is when I pick up the pricier high-end mascaras myself (like Tom Ford). Your best bet is to pick three mascaras around the same price point, which will give you a maximum savings of 33% off. The deal ends today (5/25), and it is also available in-store.

P.S. — If you’re eyeing a mid-end or high-end mascara by brands carried at Ulta, they’re also having a mascara event–most of the mid-end to high-end mascaras are 25-35% off (along with drugstore brands like Maybelline) and you’ll get 5X points on all mascara purchases (make sure to activate the offer).

I am so tempted as I have been wanting to try the Tom Ford mascara and the price point is really ridiculous. I am a little worried about trying it for fear I will love it and then be buying a $46 dollar mascara all the time.

it’s actually buy 2 get 1 free. The website is “wrong” I saw that in store today/buy 2 get 1. I tried putting 3 in basket for online purchase, and one automatically became free (even though it still says buy 3 get 1). By the time you see this it’s probably too late. I wonder if Nordstrom is losing some online sales b/c of the wrong banner.

The phrasing Nordstrom uses is correct – it says pick three, get one of them free – as in get one of your picks (out of the three) free, e.g. you pay for two, one will be free, but it is the wording they’ve been using for the event for awhile (not just today). It’s confusing, but it is exactly as intended (they have asked me to correct using “buy one, get one free” language in the past).

you’re right; I read it again after sending… this is almost like reading no parking signs — sometimes I can’t figure out what and when to park without penalty lol

Buy 2, get 1 free is language I think most people are familiar, and I have no idea why Nordstrom doesn’t use it (there must be a reason…) and is definitely not as intuitive!!

LOL, that’s me – read any parking sign 20 times and still walk away not feeling 100% confidence about my choice.

It looks like it’s usually around Memorial Day and then sometime in November (11/5/2016, 11/4/2017, 11/10/2018).
