Body Shop offers 20% off today only


UPDATE: This deal has been extended by one day - so it is good Thursday, Nov. 12, 2009.

PREVIOUSLY: Get 20% off everything in the store and online at the Body Shop today only when you become a member of their Love Your Body loyalty program.

It costs $10 to join but is worth it if you like their make up and skin care items. I'm a fan, can you tell?

The Body Shop is not as cheap as the drugstore, but I don't mind paying a few extra bucks for the higher quality, non-animal tested products. My latest favorite product is the seaweed mattifying moisturizer with SPF 15. It smells really good and does not make my skin breakout, unlike most sunscreens.

If you join today you can get a free spa treatment in store, a complimentary makeover, and a 30 ml bottle of their Love, Etc. perfume for $15 (normally $24). Plus there's the 20% off discount.

After today you get 10% off every purchase. The membership lasts for one year, though sometimes they will renew you for free.

Other perks to the program: free gift up to $10 when you come in during your birthday month (note, they do not remind you), special customer appreciation days, free product up to $15 when you earn four points and a free product up to $25 when you earn eight points. For ever $20 you spend, you get one point.

So, $15 off when you spend $80 (19% off), and $25 off when you spend $160 (16% off).
