Kiehl's sells cosmetics, skin care, and hair care products many swear by, but sales are rare. You can count on a few, though, so read on to find out how you can save on the Kiehl's brand of personal care products.

Get 20% Off Sitewide in May

Each May, Kiehl's offers a coupon code that cuts 20% off sitewide as part of its Friends & Family sale. A word to the wise, though: While there's no minimum for this coupon, you'll need to spend $50 or more to bag free shipping. Since shipping adds $7, this coupon is better for large purchases.

Score 15% Off Sitewide in August

Each August, Kiehl's offers a coupon code that cuts 15% off sitewide in support of LifeRide, an 11-day motorcycle ride that raises funds for HIV/AIDS research. (Participants in the ride also get freebies like drinks, food, and hand massages when they stop by Kiehl's stores!)

Take $20 Off $65 in November

Each November, Kiehl's offers a coupon that cuts $20 off orders of $65 or more. If you're ordering just over the minimum, that's more than 30% off and the best deal all year from Kiehl's. (Purchases over $100 will save more with the May coupon.) Still, don't jump the gun if you're making a holiday order. In 2015, Kiehl's offered an additional benefit of free gift wrapping during the last two days of the coupon. That might be worth waiting for!

Can't Wait for a Sale? Nab Your Freebies!

Although Kiehl's sales aren't common, as long as your order is over $50, you can always get free shipping and three complimentary samples. Offers for additional free samples are fairly common, too, but may require a higher minimum spend or the purchase of a specific product. Check out the Kiehl's Special Offers page to see what freebies are available when you make your purchase.
