It’s safe to say that January is not my favourite month of the year. Not only is all the festive fun all but a distant memory but it’s arguably the longest month in the year when it comes to counting down the days until payday. That and the mother of all credit card bills to pay off. No wonder they call it the January Blues.

And so, this blog is for those of you who are desperate for some zentime for that little bit less. Here are our top 6 tips on how to save money on your beauty treatments and Spa for Less at Zen!

  1. Loyalty Points

Did you know that every single time you visit Zen you automatically accrue loyalty points for every £1 you spend, whether it’s on treatments, products or even vouchers. Rather than ask you to remember to bring along a card to stamp (let’s face it, we all lose those things), your total points are building up on our system and sit on your customer record card. It can certainly add up so make sure to ask reception what your balance is and use your points for a free or discounted treatment!

2. It’s nice to have friends- and you can both save 25%!

It’s great to have friends! Especially at Zen where it pays to ‘Recommend a Friend’ for a treatment. Introduce any new client to Zen and you’ll both receive 25% off. You will get 25% off your next treatment and they will get 25% off their first one.  And there is no limit to the number of friends you can introduce. Your friend or family member just needs to tell us when they book in that they were recommended by yourself and we will apply the discount for both of you. Easy!

3. Regular clients save on courses

If you regularly have a treatment then it pays to sign up for a series of sessions – pay for five treatments and receive your sixth absolutely free. Most of our regular clients do this as it also saves the bother of having to pay at the till each time you come in.

4. Follow us on social media

We regularly run exclusive offers, freebies and competitions on social media, so get liking and saving! Our main social media platforms are Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Just use the follow buttons in the purple footer at the bottom of this page.

You can also get our monthly offers delivered straight to your inbox with our monthly newsletter.  You can sign up quickly on our homepage.

5. We love students!

If you’re a student you’ll receive 15% off weekday mornings and 10% off at all other times. Just show a current student photo ID when you pay for your appointment. Sign up to the Student Beauty App for extra discount and exclusive offers. Just go to the App Store (Apple) or the Play Store (Android) and search for Zen Lifestyle.

6. We need models

And lastly if you really love a bargain we do offer opportunities for treatments for as little as £10 or sometimes even free. We are continuously training and developing our skills so we often need practice models for various treatments. If you would like to be on our register of models just let us know and we will let you know each time we need models. All practice treatments are performed by fully qualified and trained Beauty Therapist so you will be in safe hands.

* Discounts and promotions do not apply to medical treatments and only one discount can be applied per booking.  Discounts cannot be applied to courses or already discounted treatments.
