If you’ve been using our sponsor Plenti, or if you’re considering joining their rewards program (hey, it’s free to join after all), we thought we’d take you on a little virtual shopping trip through Macy’s. Why? Because it’s fun to spend virtual money. But it’s even more fun to imagine all the things we could save on there, after using Plenti points.
There are so many terrific deals right now at Macy’s in time for fall shopping, so we’ve put together 10 fantastic items we’d love to get ourselves, all under $20. In other words, it probably wouldn’t even take you very long to earn the Plenti points you need to use for them. Then you can save that $20 bill that’s burning a hole in your wallet for…oh, say, ice cream.
(Or, come to think of that, you could get that for free too if you buy it at Plenti partner Rite Aid. ha.)
Please note all these prices are under $20 at the time of publishing but you may have to act quickly to get them. Yay for sales! Terms apply. – Eds
1 Style&co Demi Exotic Minaudiere Clutch ($16.99)
How amazing is this gorgeous little silver clutch handbag? Date night, here we come.
2 Mac Red Red Red Lipstick ($17)
Bold, fire engine red lips are so in again, and MAC nails it with this perfectly red (red red) lip shade with just enough staying power.
3 Hanky Panky Signature Lace Original Rise Thong ($20)
We swear by them. We live in them. We promise you they do not do the uncomfortable things you may think that thongs do, have you not yet tried them. You’ll see. #TeamHankyPanky
4. Bar III Tone Chain and Black Strap Bracelet ($14.75)
Speaking of super hot! Isn’t the contrast of textures amazing? Fun, affordable way to make any outfit a wee bit edgier. You could rock this with jeans or an LBD.
5 Makers Kit DIY Hand Dyed Scarf ($14)
The only thing cooler than a new accessory you love is one you love because you made it yourself. We dig this kit which comes with everything you need to whip up a navy and white batik style scarf. (Personally, we’d grab two and do it with a friend.)
6 Bliss Lid + Lash Wash Makeup Remover ($18)
Liz recently got this as a gift, and now, please allow us to introduce you to one of her favorite new beauty routine essentials. It does a great job on even heavy eye makeup (not that she wears it all that often, if you know her) and best of all there’s no stinging, no astringency, no oil, no irritation. Winner.
7 Thalia Sodi Faux Snake Chandelier Earrings ($13.25)
Texture is so hot this fall, and this faux snake pattern over gold tone is a cool way to add just the subtlest hint of it to your wardrobe without spending a fortune. We imagine real snake chandelier earrings might cost a wee bit more.
8 Metrokane Barware Rabbit Bottle Stoppers ($7.99)
We’re big fans of this brand which makes terrific wine accessories, but this is the first time we’ve seen their stoppers in any color but gray. They not only look fun, they really do prolong the life of an open bottle. What a fantastic, affordable hostess gift.
9 Primula 4-Cup French Press ($19.99)
If you’re serious about coffee, maybe your fall resolution can be to make the move from a drip maker to a French press? Especially one priced so nicely, which allows you to splurge more on the fancier beans.
10 Kate Spade NY “Cake for Breakfast” Mug ($20)
Life’s short, right?
