Earlier this week, I popped by my neighborhood Clinique counter to get more “Even Better” foundation. The salesperson at the counter let me in on an upcoming special, and suggested that I put in a “pre-order” for my desired purchase. Apparently, a new promo kicks in the next day, and I can receive a goodie bag if I waited 24 hours.
Not one to pass up a deal, plus the fact that I didn’t NEED the foundation immediately, and I live in the neighborhood so coming back wasn’t an issue, I readily agreed.
The next day, I went back for my purchase + goodie bag, and I was SHOCKED at the amount of goodies that came with it!:
That’s what I came to buy
And here’s what I received:
From left to right:
– 1 x large make-up pouch
– 1 x small make-up ouch
– 1 x eye make-up palette
– 1 x mascara
– 1 x make-up remover
– 1 Dramatically Different moisturizing lotion
– 1 lipstick
That’s a LOT of freebies for a $24 purchase! Yaay!
So I walked into Sephora recently to replenish some makeup, and while at the cash register, I asked “Hey, don’t I get something for my birthday month?”
The salesperson politely informed me that my birthday wasn’t in their system, but if I had any proof then they could work with that. So I whipped out my driving license, and the salesperson popped a little box into my bag and told me to have a nice day. (just that, no birthday wishes, hmph).
Yay for freebies! (and shamelessly asking for them)
