Macy’s, Bloomingdales, et al To Give Away $175 Million Worth of Cosmetics

Pinterest



We hope you’re sitting down before you read any further. Major retailers including Macy’s, Bloomingdales, Bergdorf Goodman and Nordstrom will be giving away $175 million worth of cosmetics and perfumes later this month.

This largesse is the settlement of a class action suit brought against a number of high-end retailers and cosmetics manufacturers for alleged price fixing. Their loss is definitely our gain. While we brace ourselves for what promises to be a free-for-all, we’ve got our eye on freebies such as Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair and Very Irresistible Givenchy Eau de Toilette.

So here’s the deal: From January 20th through the next seven days-or as long as supplies last-consumers who bought beauty and/or fragrance products between May 1994 and July 2003 from the stores listed in the suit can claim one select free product from every brand that they bought during the period in question. L’Oreal, Estee Lauder and Chanel are among the brands whose products will be handed out.

Since no proof of purchase is required, some people undoubtedly will game the system by going to every participating store and claiming products from every eligible brand. So be fast on your feet before it all goes away.

    I am a little upset about this. I am one of the people that signed the claim on this years ago and as it would seem many people who didn’t sign the claim will be getting products and not those that did :( Doesn’t seem fair.

    On the news last night this one lady who had no clue about it said she thought she deserved the free stuff for all the products she has purchased but admitted to not buying from any of the places on the stated in the lawsuit. :/

    I bought loads of mac, etc. from nordstrom during that time period. think it’d be unethical to drop by bergdorf’s or macy’s and pick me up a little something??! I’m so not trekking out of the city – lazy!

    But on the bright side, Vanessa, if you hurry you’d actually beat out the slowpokes (or just the plain old slow) and get some goodies? Free stuff is nice regardless, no?
