Do the E.L.F. Coupons Really Suck Lately?

I placed an order for some of the new E.L.F. goodies that recently launched like the Jumbo Eye and Lip Pencils but dude, what’s with the lack of coupons?

I used to get all sorts of cool 50% off your total order coupons but now all the coupons are 10 to 15% for new customers only.

What the hell?

I miss those killer deals E.L.F.!

Anyone notice the lack of coupons lately?

    Yes! I totally noticed. ECD2 is usually always active and gives you 50% off studio line.


    • 10/11/12 12:54 the Muse:

      damn I tried that and it kept saying for new customers only!


      • 10/11/12 16:03 Camille:

        hmmm it works for me. could always clear your history and cookies etc


        • 10/11/12 16:21 the Muse:

          well placed order already few days ago so no use now boo :(


  • 10/11/12 12:32 LINDARRAGNAR:

    I think the coupons always kinda sucked, if you wanted 50% off of studio you always had to hit a certain threshold, and only could get a certain amount off.
    I get emails from them, and I know they have a scavenger hunt on right now, and they had free shipping two days ago (im reading my emails from them) and they have 50% off all Halloween items.
    maybe for holiday season the big coupons will come out to play!!
    I am sure you are subscribed to their emails, but if not, maybe that could help? :)


    • 10/11/12 12:57 the Muse:

      that’s true linda you’re kinda forced to purchase a ton of products to get the 50 off plus shipping ended up evening up the cost…they charge $7 for shipping :-/ I am unfortunately as they send me dozens a day lol!


      • 10/11/12 23:58 LINDARRAGNAR:

        OMG I totally forgot about shipping :( that was the worst part, because i would always have to wait 2 weeks!! :(

        stinks, my emails are FULL of junk! :) I can only imagine yours!!


        • 10/12/12 9:17 the Muse:

          LOL you’ve no idea! My inboxes are hairy to say the least!


  • 10/11/12 12:58 Sweta:

    Hey Muse

    That’s strange, ECD2 completely works for me. but sadly so many products are out of stock as always.. you can still try again and see..:)


    • 10/11/12 13:02 the Muse:

      I tried it a few days ago and it kept telling good for new customers only BOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now I placed my order already damn them ;-D


  • 10/11/12 13:12 Sweta:

    oh shucks..sometimes these codes reallly suck..never work when you want them to..:(


    • 10/11/12 13:14 the Muse:

      boo! hold me, I cry! ;D


  • 10/11/12 13:56 caroline:

    Maybe you have to stock up for black friday/cyber monday?


    • 10/11/12 14:02 the Muse:

      good idea ;D!


  • 10/11/12 14:08 Kiss & Make-up:

    Myeah, I’m not too impressed with the coupons in Belgium either. “Here’s 50% off!” “Oh but wait, it’s only and those, those and those items, and you don’t really want or need those to begin with”. Boooo.

    Yesterday I bought only the jumbo lip gloss sticks (all 8 shades) and used the coupon elfshipzrt and got $1.98 shipping. Thought this was the best deal I could find anywhere.


    • 10/12/12 9:24 the Muse:

      $1.98 shipping is good! they typically charge $6.95 :(


  • 10/11/12 22:50 Hannah:

    Yes it sucks! U have to spend a certain amount in order to get the discount. Its annoying! I unsubscribed to their emails. I only buy at Target even though it is not a big selection.


  • 10/12/12 0:10 Tina:

    Yeah I’ve been thinking the same thing. I’m going to hold off buying anything till there’s a big sale again…


    • 10/12/12 9:16 the Muse:

      right? they used to have an endless supply of coupons what happened?!


  • 10/12/12 2:48 Marilyn @ Lipgloss and Spandex:

    Seriously! And I agree with Kiss & Make Up–there’s a whole lot more “look here’s a 50% off code good for anything!!!… just kidding, you only get ten bucks off.” Annoying.


  • 10/12/12 3:05 Saiba:

    I recently placed an order last week because of the same reason. I got a 50% off total order coupon code in an email but what annoys me is I put it in and it says “no more than $10” so what, that’s my limit for the amount I get off my order? Then how is that 50% off?! Don’t tease me!


    • 10/14/12 12:32 deyna:

      Agreed! i just placed my first ever order on elf a couple of days ago so i can’t comment on how their coupons used to be but the best coupon at the time was 50% off (up to $10)…i left kind of feeling robbed. seriously, how did they come up with this?

      …but its worse being canadian. shipping is ridiculous.
      regardless i’m excited for my first purchase !


  • 10/12/12 9:15 JenJ:

    I’ve noticed that as well. I’ve gone on a few times recently thinking that I could scoop a deal. Not so much -___-


  • 10/15/12 1:38 Marie:

    I stopped using ELF promo’s a long time ago. The only one I really look for is either the 50% off’s or free shipping. I’m happy with a free shipping code, good thing those happen often lol!
