News Break - Retailers to Give Away Cosmetics to Settle Lawsuit

I wrote about this last week...did anyone receive any free items yet? Unfortunately, I haven't made it to the mall yet, but I was thinking about calling Nordstrom to see if they had any items left. Please leave a comment and share what you got!

News Break - Retailers to Give Away Cosmetics to Settle Lawsuit

Starting January 20, and until supplies last, retails such as Macy's, Dillards and Nordstrom (and others) will be distributing free cosmetics to shoppers who bough certain cosmetics between May 29, 1994 and July 16, 2003.

'The offer is part of an agreement to settle a lawsuit filed in 2003 in a California federal court. The suit alleges stores tried to limit sales and scale back on the amount of cosmetics in their inventory, thereby keeping both prices and competition high' (BusinessWeek.com). You can read more about this HERE.

Shoppers are only permitted to receive one product made by cosmetic companies that include: Chanel, Estee Lauder and L'Oreal USA, among others.

The following stores will be particapting: 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, and Younkers.
