Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

[ Edited ]

Welcome back to the deal sharing fun! Deals shared here may also be posted to my blog (same name as the thread) unless you write for BT only. If I share your deal, I will always thank you here. I will heart every deal I see (without an outside or cheat link) to acknowledge it.

 

Beautytalk (the forum) does not allow outside links. A heart with no comment means I already have the deal or am deciding not to list it. Please list the retailer (without the link or cheat link; dot com) if it is not mentioned in the picture. Mods come in more often when they see any type of link. Thanks for sharing (original deals and repeats are welcome)! Please also share any deal haul you want, especially mystery gifts.

 

Discussion is encouraged. A lot of questions come with certain deals or retailers. When I see questions I can answer, I will respond (unless the poster consistently ignores me or someone else already answered the complete question). I read all the main posts (so no need to tag me). If you're replying to a post that is not near the top of the thread and want me or a specific person to see it, please tag us.

 

If you're posting about something on sale at Sephora, please share it here:

I thought I edited this to leave a message here, but after reading some private messages, I realize it did not take. This time, I will make sure it does before I sign off. Instead of waiting until I can return to reading every message to return at all, I will just pop in on certain days. I hope everyone is doing well. For me, some days are better than others.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Mascara Mania this weekend, June 16-17, at Dillard's. According to their ad, buy two mascaras or lash primers and receive the third one of equal or lesser value free. Sounds similar to the Nordstrom promo from last month.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Please read this if you post photos on BT!

 

I just accidentally found out that if you have location services turned on for your phone's camera/photos (not sure which), the photos you upload to BT will PRESERVE that location. Meaning if I save your photo, I can see exactly where you took it. I'm often "paranoid" (lol..) so I tested a few photos before posting this. In a few cases, it's so detailed that I can see your full address, including house #, and not just the city/state. 

 

Warning #2 -- I tell most people I trade with this, but I thought I'd use this off-topic moment to blast this. When u share a photo in a PRIVATE message, it gets put in your public BT album by default. Pls be careful when sending photos of shipping labels and personal photos! You can manually choose "private album" too. 

 

Sorry this is off-topic Smiley Sad I didn't know what thread to use and this one is popular/open to all tiers.

@candacebt this is something that should be fixed. I remember raising either this exact issue or something similar about the private/public picture/album before in one of my millions of posts for old BT. The album/picture functionality really needs to be cleaned up and tightened.

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Thanks @whitepolkydots! Just went to check and my samsung has it listed under "location tags" and thankfully it was already in the "off" position for me.  

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

@whitepolkydots:. Thanks for the PSA! You're right, you really can't be too careful with technology these days. I double-checked my own settings, and saw that my GPS tagging function was turned off. Whew! Smiley Happy

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Wow, good to know!  Thanks @whitepolkydots for reminding me to turn off the Eye of Sauron!

Hahaha Sauron! Good one @ZombieMetroAnt

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

@ZombieMetroAnt  My son understood your spoiler and loved it. Smiley Happy

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

@whitepolkydots  Thank you so much for posting this warning!  So, do you mean that if you wanted to save one of my bt photos from a public or private album, you can see exactly who I am?

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

@Ispend2much6 nobody (i hope...) should be able to view your private album except yourself! I just used to assume that all photos i sent in PRIVATE messages would automatically be saved in my PRIVATE album (or be viewable between the two people chatting), but that's not the case Smiley Sad you do, howvever, have the option to not use the public album when sharing photos (and the person you're messaging will still be able to see it). you just have to consciously choose the "private" option

 

and if a photo does have a location tag on it, you can't necessarily tell exactly who the person is? but google is pretty powerful these days and sometimes location services will save addresses down to the house #

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Thank you for this info.  Nothing is private anymore.  @whitepolkydots

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Good point! I turned off my location services on my photos long ago so I don't have to worry about this Smiley Happy screenshots hold the same info, too Smiley Happy

Re: Deals Too Good to Pass Up (Volume Five)

Yes, this is true and how law enforcement find people on the internet.
