{The Body Shop: Free Body Butter!}

The Body Shop is now offering free shipping on any purchase and they are giving you a free full-sized orange body butter, typically valued at $20!!  There is no code needed, just place anything into your cart and the body butter will be added automatically.

Plus if you go through Shop At Home you can receive cash back for shopping. 

I purchased the Cranberry Joy Two-Tone Bath Lily body pouf for a total of $3.23 (this includes tax) and will receive the body butter for free AND free shipping!!

This is a great, quick gift if you aren't wanting to spend too much.  You can buy something small and receive a $20 gift for FREE!!  This is also great for those gift exchanges everyone does for Christmas!!
