While it’s true that beauty products go on sale at major retailers all the time, it’s rare to get a chance to earn free gift cards to use on anything you want. But Saks Fifth Avenue’s Gift Card Event for 2021 is just that. Seriously. From July 22-24, you can earn up to $700 (!!!) with code “JULY21SF.” All you have to do is shop your fave items during the event. The more you buy, the more you’ll earn.
At STYLECASTER, we’re all about Saks Fifth Avenue’s luxe beauty products, including hard-to-find skincare and makeup. We’re talking celeb-favorite brands including La Mer, Guerlain, Kiehl’s, Tom Ford, Clé de Peau Beauté, Estée Lauder, Dior, Sisley-Paris and so many more. So if you’re going to shop the three-day event, we suggest heading there first.
Here’s the deal: When you make a purchase on qualifying products — including our luxe picks below — and spend a certain amount, you’ll receive a Saks gift card in return. The more you spend, the more you earn, and the rewards get increasingly bigger as the tiers climb in value. To wit, spend $250-$499 and earn a $25 gift card; between $500-$999 for a $50 gift card; $1,000-$1,999 for a $100 gift card; $2,000-$2,999 and earn a $450 gift card; and $3,000 or more to earn a $700 gift card. There are hundreds of products to choose from but we got you started with some of our favorites, below.
Our mission at STYLECASTER is to bring style to the people, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Saks Fifth Avenue is a STYLECASTER sponsor, however, all products in this article were independently selected by our editors.
