Free Cosmetics Starting Today

Due to a Classaction lawsuit against some big retailers, anyone who bought cosmetics from one of these companies anytime between 1994 and 2003 can get one free product while supplies last.  Here are the stores that are “participating” (makes it sound so willing):

  • Bergdorf Goodman
  • Bergner’s
  • Bloomingdale’s
  • Boston Store
  • Carson Pirie Scott
  • Dillard’s
  • Gottschalks
  • Herberger’s
  • Macy’s
  • Neiman Marcus
  • Nordstrom
  • Parisian
  • Saks Fifth Avenue
  • Younkers

They will give one product per person.  You do not have to have any proof that you purchased a product but you do have to sign a form stating that you are taking a product.  They will give products away as supplies last or for 7 days.  Go here for the official lingo and to see a list of the free products.

      How funny! I heard some teenagers talking about this at Starbucks last night and decided that they were just kids talking about nothing! How wrong I was!

      Went to my local Dillard’s today and this was so easy. Only took about 10 minutes-look for a table near the cosmetics counters.

    • Victoria

      Dillards here (Auburn AL) also had a table set up & the whole process took under 2min. They even gave me a cute little cosmetic bag for the perfume I chose. Fantastic!!

      Basically you just ask for the the free product from any of the above retailers?! What exactly comes in the kit?
