I have posted about individual offers on 'Buyapowa' before, but wanted to do another post about the site, as they have got some great beauty co-buys lined up over the next few weeks. If you haven't heard of 'Buyapowa' before, it is a web-site that invites the public to suggest items that they wish to purchase. The buying team then do their best to source the items and negotiate a discounted price. Once the items go live on the site, the price drops as more people opt in to the co-buy. A simple but perfect idea. I have made some great purchases from the site, all with really good discounts: Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick (£8 off); Benefit 'They're Real' Beyond Mascara (£7.50 off); Shu Uemura eyelash curlers (£6 off).
I really like the fact that the site lists forthcoming co-buys, so you can be notified as soon as particular items go live, thus minimising your chances of missing out on a great beauty bargain. Future co-buys include 'Bobbi Brown's Pot Rouge and 'Liz Earle' Superskin Concentrate. Although saying that, the site isn't just limited to beauty buys. If you want it, you can suggest a co-buy for it. Recent items have included everything from HP printers to bike lights. So what are you waiting for? Get yourself over to 'Buyapowa'!
