In the search for the perfect gift this holiday season, P&G is encouraging shoppers to consider what the people on their shopping lists need to pamper themselves as part of their daily health and wellness routines. I know that I personally don’t spend very much in that area on myself, and I would love it if someone would give me a gift basket filled with some quality personal care, health care, hair care, and other similar items.
P&G has teamed up with Sam’s Club to encourage you to “like them, love them, pamper them” during the upcoming gift giving holidays. Sam’s Club already has great prices on these items, and now when you purchase specific P&G items from Sam’s Club, you will actually get money back, increasing your savings.
Basically there are two ways to save!
Get a $10 Sam’s Club Gift Card
Spend $50 on eligible P&G items now through November 24th and you will automatically receive a $10 Sam’s Club Gift Card by mail to the address listed on your Sam’s Club membership.
Get a $20 Sam’s Club Gift Card
Spend $50 on eligible Olay items now through January 31st, fill out the rebate form and send it in and you will receive a $20 Sam’s Club Gift Card by mail.
Sam’s Club has put together a Holiday Guide with tips and advice for assembling the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Whether you are looking for stocking stuffers, that perfect gift for someone special, or a pampering treat for your closest friends and family, with P&G and Sam’s you can find that ideal gift and get extra savings!
The way I figure it, those gift cards will arrive after Christmas, so I can have an excuse to buy myself something that I really wanted but didn’t get.
Sam’s Club and P&G Holiday Guide
Here’s a great example of a way to maximize your savings:
Olay Pro-X will be offered at an amazing value at Sam’s Club during their promotions. The prices are valid 11/1 – 12/31. Olay Pro-X retails for $93.48 at Sam’s Club, but the new lower price from now until 12/31 will be $83.48. If a Member purchases Pro-X (or other Olay items valued up to $50 or more) as well as $50 in eligible items for the Beauty Rewards program during the timeframe that Beauty Rewards and Olay Gift Card Rewards are both live, they will qualify for both the offers, and they will get $30 back in Gift Cards! They’ll end up saving about $40, which is pretty significant.
To help give you an idea of some of the great health and beauty gift ideas, I went shopping at Sam’s Club and put together a gift basket for my mom. She’s actually got a Christmas season birthday in December and sometimes gets the shaft on gifts so I thought it would be a fun idea to build her a basket full of beauty care items.
I am going to add some cellophane wrapping and a ribbon to the basket, and it will make a wonderful gift for my mom. I did debate upon actually splitting up the items and creating two baskets, one for my mom and one for my mother-in-law for Christmas, but I kept thinking about how I would like to get this big basket filled with all these great products and opted for her birthday. But I could have easily split this into two or even three gifts.
Here’s the breakdown of my purchase:
- Olay Facials: $15.88
- Olay Regenerating Cleanser 3 pack: $15.88
- Crest Prohealth Rinse 2 pack: $7.44
- Pantene Shampoo: $7.88
- Pantene Conditioner: $7.88
- Olay Body Wash 3 pack: $10.88
Total: $65.84 plus tax
I will be getting a $10 Gift Card back! I’m definitely going to buy myself something with it.
Remember the P&G Health & Wellness rewards program ends on November 24, 2010 and the Olay Rewards program ends on January 31, 2011. You are able to take advantage of both programs so long as you purchase $50 in eligible products for each program. You can create great pampering gifts for everyone on your list and get up to $30 back in Sam’s Club gift cards by mail.
Also, stay tuned…YOU are going to have the opportunity to win your very own “Pamper Me” gift basket!
