50% or 10% Off? Free Membership Card! Tips to Shop at The Body Shop India

Feb 5, 2013

I recently claimed an offer at The Body Shop – Free membership card with purchase of Rs 2500. I was super excited. So damn excited that I forgot to take a print out! The moment I entered the shop, the sweet lady informed me that the Four Step Smokey Eyes are finally here and one of them is on 50 off. To my sweetest luck, it was the one I wanted – Smokey Copper! Could I have asked for more? 

But then I was missing the printout of the offer and the guy at the store (I hate him and might start to plot his murder someday!) said that he cannot do anything if I don’t have the printout. Sadly, I went out but told the SA to keep few things for me separately. I promised to come back in a week with the god damn printout! 

This happened on this Sunday. Yesterday, I went to the other mall to pick something for Mr. Boy for V Day. But, went straight to The Body Shop. The SA there (whose brain I have also chewed for this exact same palette) excitedly showed me the palette – We the have the palette you wanted. And you know what? Its on 10% off!! Gr8 no? 

I lost all my calm in that exact moment. A palette which itself costs 1995 – the FULL price I was READY to PAY UNTIL I saw it on 50% off is NOW on 10% off? I walked out of the store blabbering something that I simply cannot recall. 

I lost my sleep last night. I could not work the whole day. Finally around 4 PM today, I ran out of my office – yes, RAN out of my office to got the previous Body Shop store with the printout this time. And I found the palette IS on 50% off – thank god for saving my money. I love you......

And, yes ONLY this one was on 50% off, the other was on 10%. I have no idea how two stores have completely different offers...

Anyways, I also got the few other things – Festive Manicure Set for my office drawers, White Musk EDT because I am in love with the body mist now and Cranberry hand cream because I have to make it 2500 INR for the FREE card. 

All in All – Body Shop giving free membership card on purchase of 2500INR. This is HUGE because

1. The card itself costs 500 INR

2. This offer is valid during sales which means I am already saving money

3. This offer was there earlier but for purchase of 3500 INR so, this time its less and that too during sale time.

Take care of the fact that –

1. Different shops might have different offers. Check properly if you can visit more than one store or buying anything that has a huge price tag on its own. A difference of 40% is huge when the product itself costs around or more than 2000 INR.

2. The sale will last till 28th Feb after which they will launch new products.

3. Price of many products has recently hiked so, stock up your essentials if you can find them in the older price. Today I found that there is a mix of old and new priced products on shelves.

4. Do take that printout from your email to save yourself from any hassles. The mail does say that you can even show them on phone etc but why take a chance?

You can also claim such exicting offers. Last month they gave a free tote bag with every purchase. Just like Body Shop India’ FB page and watch out for the offers

Shopped lately in Body Shop during Sales? Anything interesting? Share......please..


  1. nothing interesting in the body shop sale here. so drab!!!

  2. It seemed as if "sweet and bitter blog" was printed on the white musk's bottle.. hehe..
    Great buy hun :)

  3. The SAs in all the TBS outlets I've visited here in Bangalore have been extremely sweet and accommodating. I picked up the body polishes and shower gels in Cranberry Joy and Ginger each and the body butter in Love etc and Ginger since they were out of the cranberry body butter. They were all on 50% off. The SA was genuine enough to tell me that other products from permanent lines on 50% off are nearing expiry. Hence I picked up stuff only from the Christmas edition which they wanted to clear. Got the Love etc butter only to bring the bill to 2000 INR which lets me get another stamp. Do check the date on your palette.

    1. I checked the date when I purchased - best before jul 15.

      This palette is also a limited edition thing so, I was thinking both should have had the 50% of like other limited editions.

  4. may be the pallette u got is from the old priced ones and hence they were giving 50% off.. happened with me too once.. different stores having diff discounts as one had to clear old stock..

    1. the palette is also from limited edition and was launched recently. Both the store got them just days before the sale started. So, they were not old stock

  5. Great buys :) Glad you got the discounts! I can understand how stressing it is to not be able to buy something you really want on discount for some reason or the other.
