If you subscribe to ipsy, then you have heard about their new Shopping app, which is available exclusively to ipsy members, where you can shop brands like MAC, Clinique, and Bobbi Brown and earn “ipsy cash,” a percentage back from your purchase.
I recently made two purchases, mainly to use the $5 bonus ipsy cash that was sent in August’s glam bag, and to see if it worked.
I ordered a concealer brush from Beau Gachis, and it was shipped fast and arrived in perfect condition. The brush was originally $9.99 and after the ipsy cash back which was $7.99 I ended up basically paying only $2. Note: I think that since I was using the bonus $5 that the crediting process was sped up, as it only took about 2 days to reflect in my account.
You do have to pay the original price while checking out, and the ipsy FAQ states that it may take up to 140 days from date of purchase to apply to your account. Once you reach $25 in ipsy cash then you can have that amount sent directly to your PayPal account or have a check mailed. Catch: you have to maintain your ipsy account in good standing to be able to cash out and if you cancel your membership before reaching $25 or cashing out, you will lose any earned ipsy cash!
I decided to order from MAC which offers 20% in ipsy cash back.
I ordered the travel size MAC Prep and Prime spray for $12 from MAC through ipsy shopper.
I placed my order on September 9, and as of today there hasn’t been any activity on my cash back, but it does show that 20% cash back was active. Really hoping that it won’t take the full 140 days.
If the cash back is credited to my account in a reasonable amount of time versus the maximum, then I will probably start utilizing this app alot!
