Beauty Bargains Galore from Amazon and Us Weekly

A shout out to Crystal at Money Saving Mom for passing along this great deal from and US Weekly.

For a limited time, if you buy $25 worth of merchandise from a beauty seller at, you will receive a free subscription to US Weekly magazine. Here are the terms for the Amazon beauty deal.

I do love the "celebrity news," but I like cash more and that's what makes this deal so appealing. If you don't want the free magazine subscription, you can request a refund. You'll get $19.80 back.

So that means, you can get $25 worth of beauty products for only $5.20, plus shipping and handling. If you're an Amazon Prime member, your shipping is free. To browse the products that are eligible for this promotion, visit Amazon Beauty .

Last night, I combined this deal with antoher Amazon promotion -- 4 for 3. That's four (paperback) books for the cost of three. You can access the 4-for-3 Books promotion here.

The 4-for-3 Deal also applies to magaines and home and garden items. How sweet is that?

What did I get?

I bought four mindless mysteries and a trio of Philosophy body washes.

Want to know how I sweetened these deals even more? I used $35 worth of Amazon gift certificates that I received from completing a customer-service survey and as earnings on my Visa card. So, I'll end up paying only $12.03 (including tax and shipping) for nearly $60 worth of books and beauty products from Amazon.

I'm VERY happy about that.

Now, if I could just find time for a relaxing read in a bubble bath...
