    Went to SDM tonight to get Estee Lauder eye cream and mascara -- running low on both, so had to take advantage of the 20X points. The cashier advised me that Estee Lauder has a points offer in addition to the 20X points! I spent $85, plus $11.05 in taxes. I received just over 30,000 points (I used my Optimum credit card too to get points). During the mega bonus redemption in December, those 30,000 points will be worth $80! I realized this on my drive home from SDM and have been kicking myself ever since. Why didn't I buy $400 of Estee Lauder tonight during these two promotions?! At mega redemption I'd be able to get $400 of products free. And as if it couldn't get better, the service was extremely slooow at the store -- only one person working in the Beauty Boutique. She gave me a 7 mL size of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, because I had to wait so long for service. I use this product, so definitely a valuable freebie for me.
    Edit: Just realized I could have done better -- should have bought a gc on my Optimum credit card first (to earn points), then paid for the products with the gc.

    Good job! Always nice when you score as much as you spend.
    Just joined, an organization that funds micro-loans to people in developing countries. I love the idea that the $25 I saved in groceries can be given to a fish woman with 5 children in the Philippines to help grow her business.
