*Expired* elf Deal: Free Dinner & Movie w/ $20 Purchase

by Freebies4Mom on March 11, 2009 6:14 pm

A great shopping deal if you need makeup and want free dinner and a movie to go with it! Thanks goes to The Discount Heroes for telling me about it. Here’s what the deal is:

1. Get 4% Cash Back
Just shop thru Ebates at e.l.f. cosmetics (it’s in the Health & Beauty category)

2. Add 20 items to your basket to get to $20
Most makeup items are only $1 each at e.l.f. – that’s some affordable makeup!

3. Use coupon code DINE
To get your free Fandango movie ticket ($10 value) and Restaurant.com certificate ($25 value). I don’t think you can combine this coupon code with any others out there. Shipping is $6.95 for a $20 order. Be sure you are familiar with what movie theaters and restaurants you can use those freebies with before you do this deal!

UPDATE: Here’s how you’ll get that movie ticket and Restaurant.com certificate – e.l.f. just emailed me this:

“Thank you for your order with e.l.f. cosmetics. The restaurant gift card will be sent to you with your order. A fandango code will be emailed to you, which you will be able to redeem for your free movie ticket. We hope you enjoy your dinner and movie!”

Remember to start by shopping thru Ebates so you can get your 4% cash back. Every penny cash back you get adds up for your next big fat check. If you are new to using Ebates you also get a $5 bonus in your account after you make your first purchase thru Ebates. It’s the best online rebate program around!

I file all offers that require a purchase under rebates.

Great advice, Summer! This is my first purchase with e.l.f. so it’s an experiment to see what I think about their products and how easy it will be for me to use the freebies they are giving me.-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

I just want everyone to look into this deal before they commit! I received an email from a friend a couple of months ago about this great deal that E.L.F. was offering. So I googled it and there are a lot of negative reviews for them. I would probably do a little research first.

I just got this via email from elf:”Thank you for your order with e.l.f. cosmetics. The restaurant gift card will be sent to you with your order. A fandango code will be emailed to you, which you will be able to redeem for your free movie ticket. We hope you enjoy your dinner and movie!”-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

Does anyone know what restaurants you can choose from? Do you get to choose any one you want on the restaurant.com website? Thanks!www.outofsomething.etsy.com

Just a follow up – I received confirmation from someone on behalf of ELF that this deal is currently working again (but as with any deal, for how long, who knows?) So after receiving this email, we have officially mentioned it on our site as well. So hurry if you want in on it! :)$ Money Savin’ Momma $Engineer a Debt Free Life (freebies, bargains, and ways to earn money online)http://www.engineeradebtfreelife.com/

Just wanted to post this link to a girl’s blog who takes a lot of time to review make-up products. I thought some of you may want to check this out before buying the ELF products (even though I know you get a sweet gift card in return.)http://www.xanga.com/RiceBunny/666401830/elf-makeupyou-get-what-you-pay-for/(not advertising for her, I promise, just passing the word along)

Thanks, will be interested to hear the response you get from ELF, especially since DINE is an old restaurant.com code – that’s what made me question the deal and email someone earlier today.

I just placed my order and the Free $25 Restaurant.com gift card and Fandango movie ticket are listed on my order confirmation. I also said "No" to the free Women's Health Magazine Subscription (my order total was $21.00) and I will be requesting a $9.99 refund on that free subscription I passed on. I did email customer service to ask them how I will receive the free dinner & movie certificates. By email or with my order? I'll let you know! I would hope the e.l.f. would show this coupon code as "expired" if this deal is indeed over. But they are advertising it on their front page, and on many coupon sites – so maybe it's a new offer? I'll let everyone know what I find out!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

Has anyone actually done this deal and confirmed it works? I discovered it yesterday, but did not blog about this deal because when I asked someone who works with ELF about the deal (—it seemed to me the deal had already ended since DINE was an old restaurant.com code), I received an email from that person stating, “Yes the free movie ticket offer has officially ended.”$ Money Savin’ Momma $Engineer a Debt Free Lifehttp://www.engineeradebtfreelife.com/

I don’t know when the deal will end – but seems like it won’t last long!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom

This deal sounds amazing! But do you know when the offer ends?
