Best Kept Beauty Secret - Shiseido in Hawaii

Shiseido's Camellia Club is a special rewards program limited to Shiseido counters in Hawai’i! Just collect stamps with every purchase and you're on your way to earning beauty gifts worth up to $230. To become a club member simply sign up at any participating Shiseido counter--there is no fee and no catches to enroll.

The way it works: For every $10 you spend, you are given one ink stamp on a rewards card. At the end of each year, a sales representative will calculate the number of stamps you collect. You will be rewarded a free full sized Shiseido product at the end of each cycle. Each stamp card begins on July 1st of each year and ends on June 30th of the following year.

Reward Gift. Depending on the number of stamps you collect, you will be given one of the following gifts:

20 stamps = White Lucent Brightening Cleansing Foam (worth $33)
40 stamps = White Lucent Brightening Massage Cream (worth $50)
60 stamps = Future Solution Eye and Lip Contour Cream (worth $125)
80 stamps = Future Solution Total Revitalizing Cream (worth $230)

Coupons. When you think things couldn’t get better, with each yearly enrollment you are given with a small booklet filled with coupons including opportunities for you to get free Shiseido Rewards stamps (e.g. 2 free stamps with a purchase of any facial product; 2 free stamps for participating in a complementary make up lesson), as well as discounts to local restaurants in Honolulu (e.g. buy one lunch entrée get one free at Ryan’s; 15% off your entrée at Kincaids.)

Double Stamps months. To entice you even more, there are special periods where every dollar that is spent is calculated as two dollars. This allows you to earn more stamps and fill your rewards card even fuller and faster!

Here’s the Inside Scoop: Upcoming Double Stamp days (at Macy's) will be held…

Mid-July 2008
3 days in September 2008
End of December 2008-Early January 2009

These are great periods to stock up Shiseido products to last you the whole year, and it is possible to fully complete the entire stamp rewards cards by taking advantage of the Double Days. Tourists too may find this a good motivation to stop by the Shiseido counter on their next visit to the islands.

I've been using Shiseido products for over 15 years and have found this to be one of the best kept beauty secrets about living in Hawaii.

Participating stores: Macy’s | Shirokiya | Nordstrom
