  1. beth says:

    Love your site, i am also a addict for pwp. Do you ever post those ? ( purchase with purchase ) Lancome always has such good ones. Thanks for your site, its great.

  2. devil says:

    Oh, this is a WONDERFUL site! I’m looking for an Estee Lauder gwp right now because their last one (mid-Sept) got me hooked on their Idealist skin refiner. I won’t buy cosmetics at the dept store unless I get a gwp (or at least a pwp). I guess I’ll be waiting a while for another Lauder one, though.

    Thanks for all your hard work keeping us updated on all the latest GWP scoop. I just love your site :)

  3. beautybonus says:

    Hi devil, thanks for stopping by, I’m glad you like my site! I’ll be writing more about them tomorrow but there are these new Estee Lauder Essentials kits available at Nordstrom that have Idealist in them. Not a GWP but a great value!

  4. Tracy says:

    I wish I had known about your site sooner! Such wealth of information! There will be a Estee Lauder GWP starting October 8 on Nordstrom.

    “Your free gift with any estee lauder purchase of 39.50 or more. Worth 100.00. A gift designed by you, just for you. Exclusively Nordstrom.
    Choose your favorite lip and eye shades. Choose your cleanswer. Choose the moisturizer (for brightening, protection, or lifting) and the repair serum (for pore-minimizing, line correction or past UV damage) you need. All, plus the luminous fragrance every woman wears her way, New Estee Lauder Sensuous and a chic tri-color cosmetic bag that shines, shines shines.”

    Looks like a long e/s pallet with 7 colors and brush (in e/s case), l/g, and l/s in warm or cool. Picture looks like a deluxe size (0.5 oz) of moisturizer.

    I think I’m going to pick up the Prevention Essentials kit (wouldn’t have known if it weren’t for your site!) and get the GWP.

  5. sangfreud says:

    Wow! Thanks so much–got the wonderful GWP at, plus used the mineral3 code to get 3 samples on top of the 2 samples they give you with each order!
    I also wanted to let you know about another coupon code: TIMEZONE

    • beautybonus says:

      Thanks for the tarte coupon, I will add it to the coupon page. I got my bag too, I’m still playing with it, I love those things! I’m so glad you like yours!

  6. Anna says:


    I just wanted to drop a note and say how much I appreciate your website. It’s a lot of work, and you do it well and systematically. The joys of getting free lipsticks – can’t say why, but always makes my day.

  7. Grace says:

    Hi, it is a great website! Wish I had known it earlier~
    I just tried the Von Maur website but didn’t have the free gift in my shopping basket when I proceeded to checkout. Does it mean the gifts have run out?

    • beautybonus says:

      Hi, thanks, glad you like it! I just tested the gwp in the von maur shopping cart and it showed up – not sure why you were having trouble. It does appear not on the first page but on the 2nd page after you click “checkout”, can you try that? Good luck!

  8. barginlvr says:

    I’m not sure how I did it but I spent $29.50 at Macy’s Lancome counter and recieved the following:
    1 Roomy blue and white striped tote bag
    2 black and white patent leather make up bags
    1 white faux croc make up bag
    3 full size lipsticks
    2 trial size mascaras
    2 blushes
    1 eye shadow quad
    1 7-color eyeshadow
    1 hydrating mask
    2 eye makeup removers
    1 anti-age lotion
    1 trail size under eye concealer
    1 full size eye liner pencil
    1 set of makeup brushes
    and some single-use samples
    I’m still scratching my head over this!

    • beautybonus says:

      Hi, thanks for sharing! I think you mean the one at Nordstrom, right? They will also be offering a new Lancome bonus on that day. I’ll post when they are available.

  9. Blondelle says:

    No one seems to have the photo and contents of the current GWP at Macy’s starting on 10/6/09. Would you be able to post info and photo of that one? Thanks!

    • beautybonus says:

      I just tried to order it online and the shopping cart let me go all the way through checkout without telling me it was out of stock. Did you order it and then did they contact you and tell you it was no longer available?

    • beautybonus says:

      Diane, the only Clinique GWP currently available is the Bronze Escape GWP at Boscov’s and Dillard’s. I think the next one will be at Von Maur, but I won’t have any details until it is actually available online.

  10. MaryS says:

    Hey, quick FYI that has a clinique sale going on! i snatched up a great laura mercier palette from them, last summer. (they have had several makeup sales, since last summer- i don’t want to give them impression that they do not do makeup sales frequently-just not brands i’m keen on). is a really neat site: i have bought some other things from them(hot chocolate), and just thought, the current clinique sale might be of interest to your readers!

    Bytheway, i’m a first time commenter in NYC and hope to point you towards any GWP’s i may notice in stores! i have noticed macy’s herald square sometimes puts gifts out on display, before they go online, or send emails about them. will keep you posted on what i see!

    thanks for this great blog!

    • beautybonus says:

      Hi, thanks for the heads up on the Gilt site, I signed up but apparently I have to “wait” for a membership slot to open? Looks like I’ll miss out on the Clinique sale, bummer! Thank you for stopping by and reading, I hope you find the site helpful!

  11. EveVentura says:

    I received a wonderful Estee Lauder fragrance gift set purchased at Macy’s on Mother’sDay from my husband and kids but no bobus gifts and no PWP. Do you know if Macy’s has any ??? How about Nordstrum’s ?? Thank you

    • beautybonus says:

      As far as I know the only Estee Lauder extra available online right now is the PWP available at Boscov’s and Dillard’s. I believe the next Estee Lauder gift is coming soon to Lord and Taylor and then possibly Dillard’s but my crystal ball has been wrong before. If anything becomes available online I will post about it as soon as I see it!

  12. Aggie says:

    I think I’m now more addicted to you blog than to the free gifts themselves! Thank you so, so much for having this available for us. I surely was experiencing withdrwal symptoms during you mini-vacation, but that’s the least you deserve!

    • beautybonus says:

      Wow, thank you, I’m so glad you like the blog! I did need the break but it was harder than I thought it was going to be to be offline for five whole days. I have another, extended vacation coming up next month but during that one I’m bringing my netbook with me and I will be blogging. But July is historically a slow month for GWPs, I’m not sure why.

  13. Aggie says:

    Oh, come on, don’t do it just for us, take it easy on your next vacation, too! We’re so lucky to have you anyway, a little vacation here and there will only do everyone good …
    As for my addiction, the sad think is I’ve developed it for Free Gifts back in the early 90’s, when I was just about 20, and I thought it was gonna pass. But it didn’t. I used to take extended car trips to visit department stores just to do free-gift-hunting. When I saw my first ever Clinique GWP, I thought it was a one off kinda thing, so I bought things repetedly to get several of them. Well, I’m not that badly off now, I can resist the temptation to get them all, I only get the best ones, and, thanks to YOU!, now I can have all the info in one place to pick and choose! Have a wonderful weekend!

    • beautybonus says:

      But my next vacation is three weeks long. I can’t go three weeks without blogging, I’d go into withdrawals! I need to know when that next Clinique bonus will be, or what if I miss a great coupon/gwp?? I’m just glad so many of you out there share my interest and find this site helpful. Thank you for your kind words, I hope you have a great weekend too!

  14. Nikita says:

    Lancome is having a GWP at Macys starting August 17, I just reserved mine in store. You get to pick a bag, and then 6 out of 11 items, including that new lifting face cream. Took me too long to decide what I want lol! Love your site btw, keep all the goodies coming!

    • beautybonus says:

      I’ll be sure to keep an eye out and post when it goes online. Is it the similar Lancome tote that we’ve seen at all the stores this summer? On my vacation I saw women with them everywhere, at the airport, at Sea World, in Las Vegas, even at comic con!

  15. Aggie says:

    Good news about the most recent Macy’s Clinique GWP: on-line you can actually get it with ANY Clinique purchas. I got only a $12.50 deodorant, and they’ve added the GWP. I bought other cometics at the same time, but not from Clinique. Just to spread the good news … Or maybe it only worked like that on the 1st day … Greetings!

    • beautybonus says:

      Awesome you were able to get it with only a deodorant! I’m glad I waited, I was on the fence until today I saw that new value set (I’m a faithful All About Eyes user anyway, the extras are just gravy). I placed my order this morning, can’t wait to try the All About Eyes serum.

    • Preet says:

      yeah…that bag is tempting and making me feel to buy something even though I don’t really need anything…gwp are really addictive

    • beautybonus says:

      I don’t need anything either and I keep asking myself, do I really need yet another tote bag? I haven’t placed an order (yet) but I’m pretty tempted!

    • Preet says:

      Aww…i did end up buying this EL GWP.. and i totally love it.. EL’s GWP are cute compared to clinique but I like clinique skin care

    • beautybonus says:

      I ended up getting this one too! I held out until yesterday but I didn’t want to miss out so I placed my order yesterday. I hope the bag is as pretty in person as it is in the picture. I’m a Clinique gal too, but I just love this bag!

    • Preet says:

      Cool.. U bought it!…Do you know any website other than dealsea which posts gwp with men’s fragrances :-)

    • beautybonus says:

      Sorry, I don’t know of any other sites. I have had a few readers request those offers so I try to post good ones when I see them, but I don’t know of any other sites. I do know that now is the best time of year for stuff like that! Macy’s and Dillard’s both have great totes and other things on their sites right now, and Bloomingdale’s and Nordstrom still have nice men’s GWP right now online.

  16. Sara Krickow says:

    I just discovered this site and truly love it-it’s what I’ve needed for a long time now!!! Thanks so much :) !!

  17. Bernadette says:

    Lisa, you are a girl after my own heart!! I am so happy and excited to find your website!! Keep up the good work!!

    • beautybonus says:

      I got that mailer yesterday! It looks so pretty, I love that bag. I included the information in today’s post and will do a full post as soon as it is available online.

    • beautybonus says:

      From what I can find out online, the Bergdorf Goodman event starts on September 21 (but there is no guarantee it will be online, sometimes they only do it in store). I will post next week if it shows up online!

    • beautybonus says:

      Sometimes the in-store gifts are different from the online gifts; there are too many out there for me to share the in-store gifts so I try to focus mainly on the online gifts.

  18. Kimmie says:

    Oh geez, it seems I’ve discovered your site too late! Do you know when Nordstrom, Bergdorf, Bloomingdales, Saks, etc will have another “Clinique Bonus Time”? I wish I had thought to check up on the status of things earlier in the summer. I know the Dillard’s promotion is still available, but their bag choice is sort of unattractive, whereas Nordstrom’s “Trina Turk” options and the other stores have what seem to be nicer offerings. Will another year have to cycle before we see Clinique Bonus Times with “nicer GWPs”?

    Thanks for all of your hard work & expertise! Much appreciated!

    • beautybonus says:

      Thanks for your kind words, I’m glad you like the site! Not to worry, there is always a next bonus. Today there is a new bonus at Saks (with $50 min purchase) and starting around October 4 there will be a lovely bonus at Macy’s (with $21.50 min purchase). I’ll be posting the complete information later this morning.

    • beautybonus says:

      Just found this, but no pic:
      Starting October 26 receive your choice of a skincare or makeup gift with your Estee Lauder purchase of $35 or more. Add a 0.5 oz Eau de Parfum purse spray to your gift with a purchase of $65 or more.
      I’ll keep looking for a photo!

    • beautybonus says:

      I haven’t heard a thing yet and I’m already looking everywhere! Last year it was first available for sale online on November 10 (the Elizabeth Arden one is usually late October with Lancome in early November), so I will let you guys know as soon as I find out anything. I’m also quite curious to see if they can top last year’s Coach fragrance PWP, that one was so nice!

  19. Cynthia says:

    Not sure whether you’re already planning to post this today, but started their Bonus today with the VIP link, it should be open to everyone tomorrow. Thanks so much for all the great updates, I love your site!

  20. says:

    I just wanted to add a photo link for the clinique GWP at BG- it is not yet available online (also not sure if it ever will be). According to, GWP at Bergdorfs usually come with a $50 purchase, but you can get this one with a $40 purchase. Unfortunately, they do not yet have the Christmas 3-step kits available in store or online, but they have some others such as the six-tiny key-chain lip gloss/lipstick sets, perfume sets, etc. Here is a photo of the gift along with some more info:

  21. RockyGirl says:

    Recently discovered your site and it’s been most helpful for my holiday gift preparation! Many thanks for keeping us informed on all the good deals. Keep up the good work! Happy Holidays!!!

  22. Jinny says:

    On my mall’s website under special offers, it says that the Von Maur Clinique bonus will start on Feb. 28th. No other details yet!

  23. Paige says:

    Estée Lauder GWP will start on Tuesday the 28 of February at all Macy’s locations on the northeast. Will have the choice between make up gift or skin care gift (resilience lift or timezone) $70 or more will receive step up eye essentials with a full size make up remover and two mascara primers.

    • beautybonus says:

      Do you mean the Clinique bonus at Macy’s? The Clinique bonus at Macy’s will be in early-mid April and is always different from the Boscov’s/Dillard’s one; it is usually one of my favorites all year. I can’t yet find any info on it but I’ll keep looking! There are also Clinique bonuses coming later in March at Saks, Von Maur, and Bloomingdale’s before the Macy’s one begins.

  24. Jen says:

    My local Macy’s told me that their GWP is starting March 26, 2012, but they weren’t doing pre-sale just yet, so I couldn’t get any more info on it. Has anyone heard details yet? (I am trying to decide if I should get the Dillards one or wait for Macy’s??)

    • beautybonus says:

      I’m having a hard time finding information on that too. I did call a Macy’s and they told me the bonus includes Moisture Surge in a tube (old formula), DDML, High Impact Mascara, Lipstick/Gloss duo, eyeshadow trio/blush, and two cosmetic bags. I will keep looking for a photo!

  25. girlyphase says:

    Hi! Love the blog–so helpful! Have you ever considered posting a schedule of upcoming GWP events, so we have some idea what is coming up, in addition to what is currently going on? I would love to know when my favorite stores are coming up!

    • beautybonus says:

      I’m so glad you like the blog! I have a calendar I use for myself but it would be a lot of work maintaining one online and I just don’t have that kind of time, unfortunately. You can always look at the archives to see what was offered in any given month in previous years, most places especially department stores seem to follow a fairly consistent calendar of GWPs.

  26. Rene says:

    Wow, Van Maur was a complete DUD! They had that Clinique bonus for LESS than 24 hours!! I got the really nice one at Neiman Marcus, but they were sold out of my moisturizer, so I’ve been trying to find a lesser-cost GWP at another store to get with my moisturizer. The Van Maur one was only $23.50 purchase and would have been perfect. Sigh. Guess I’ll try to squeeze the most I can out of that tube until another one comes up! LOL! Thanks for offering such a great site!!

    • girlyphase says:

      Ooo, I’m excited for May! The and Nordstrom gifts are usually some of the best, IMO, especially with low purchase minimums. I need my sunblock, so I am ready when they are!

    • beautybonus says:

      They did sell out fast, I’m sorry you weren’t able to get one! They might come back in stock, that happened with the recent Estee Lauder bonus at Von Maur; if that happens I will update the site. The next bonus I have on my calendar is later this month at Neiman Marcus; and then in mid-May usually has a nice choose-your-own bonus; and then at Nordstrom towards the end of May.

  27. Kristina says:

    I just discovered your website and I want to let you know that I find it very useful!! Thanks for maintaining it! Also, what will be the Clinique bonus for Nordstrom in May?

    • beautybonus says:

      I personally like the one better, but mostly because of the Chubby Stick, I don’t use DDML (I wish they would put DDMG in some bonuses!) or lipstick so for me I prefer that one. But I usually like Tracy Reese bags so I keep looking for a photo but cannot find one!

    • beautybonus says:

      I can not find a photo anywhere, but it includes a Tracy Reese cosmetic bag, Liquid Facial Soap Mild, DDML, All About Eyes Serum, color compact, High Impact Mascara, full size Bamboo Pink lipstick, and a mini lip gloss in Mystic free with any $28 Clinique purchase. It starts around May 22.

  28. Jen says:

    Has anyone been able to find any new free shipping codes? I had “SKIN” in my cart, but by the time I checked out, it had expired. :(

  29. Caitlin says:

    Do you have any word on what will be in the upcoming Lord and Taylor Clinique bonus? I can barely find anything even mentioning it, and the ladies at my counter were extremely vague and unhelpful about the contents.

    • beautybonus says:

      When I called two different stores today the ladies were also not very helpful, and I can’t find a picture anywhere! We’ll have to be patient until next week :(

    • beautybonus says:

      A bonus started at Belk today, I’ll try to find out when the next one is. I think the one with the cute tin that was recently at Stage Stores is coming soon to Bon Ton, but I will keep looking.

  30. Rockygirl says:

    Just got the latest Clinique gift from Macy’s. The bag set is SUPER cute!!! Thank you so much for your prompt updates. Luv, luv, luv your site!!! Have a wonderful autumn!

  31. FrustratedRetailGal says:

    Wanted to let the ladies know that it’s probably better to go to the counters to get a GWP than online. I had the most disappointing experience recently with and a GWP. I “stepped up” my order to $85 dollars and they only sent half of my second step up due to “while supplies last”. When contacted they stated there was nothing they could do for me.

    • beautybonus says:

      That’s a bummer, I’m sorry that happened to you. Unfortunately for some of us online is the only way to go, we don’t live near the counters. The only department store in my town is a Dillard’s and I would have to drive quite a way to get to any bigger towns with more stores.

  32. Ivy says:

    Is the Newest Lancome deal a good one? Would there be a better deal until Thanksgiving? Anyone knows if they do any Blackfriday sale?

    • beautybonus says:

      This is a fairly standard Lancome GWP, I like that they have been including the new mini eye shadow palettes lately. This is a lean time of year for Lancome GWPs, due to the holiday blockbuster, but there is one scheduled at Lord and Taylor before Thanksgiving, plus there might be one or two at upcoming department store beauty events (but those usually have a higher buy-in, around $85). At the end of November there will probably be Lancome GWPs at Von Maur and Boscov’s. Traditionally Lancome does not do much for Black Friday but they usually have a 20% off Friends and Family discount at the end of November.

  33. Sherry says:

    Hello… thanks for bringing all us gwp & PWP addicts this site. I LOVE IT! I’ve been coming here for about a year now and thought it was time to tell you how very much all you hard work is appreciated :-) Also a warning to your readers I’ve made several purchases from the Elizabeth Arden site and have use coupon codes after the sent me email offering appealing gwp but then when I received the order the gwp was not the one that I was suppose to receive. It was totally different! This has happened twice already through them and when I emailed them to complain they never emailed me back or anything. No apology nothing. And actually I have to contact them again because my last order they charged my PayPal account & my MasterCard!

    • beautybonus says:

      I’m glad you like the site, and thanks for alerting us about the Elizabeth Arden GWPs. I’m surprised at their customer service! I have ordered from them sporadically in the past but not recently (until yesterday, to try the Visible Difference samples). I hope they step up their customer service so this doesn’t happen to you again.

  34. Sherry says:

    The first couple times I ordered from Elizabeth Arden I didn’t have any problems but I was just so taken back that they would just ignore an email with complaints about customer service. That was the last straw for me. My money will be better spent at Estee Lauder :-)

  35. Donna says:

    any idea when Estee bonus time is at any store? I am in Bucks Co. Pa, but travel. Are the bonus with purchase in store, or do they do it online also?

    • beautybonus says:

      If you visit this page you will see not only approximate dates but photos and inclusions for upcoming EL bonuses for the next few months (those LP bags are so gorgeous!). The department store bonuses are always online and in store, but the upcoming one direct from Estee Lauder is online only.

  36. Kate says:

    Estée Lauder GWP (35.00) step-up w/70.00 purchase at Macy’s Tuesday-Sunday, 3/5/13-3/24/13, choose your skincare and lipstick shade. Clinique GWP (25.00) at Boscov’s starts Wednesday, 3/6/13, choose Violets or Pinks.

  37. fran says:

    Dillards notified me of their GWP for Clinique March 10 thru March 28. All their free goodies for only $25 worth of lovely products. Enjoy

  38. Ashley says:

    Thx so much for updating us on all of the great deals out there! I check your page frequently to make sure I am getting the most for my money when I decide to do a little something for myself. Thx for sharing your hard work!!

  39. Jen says:

    Found out from Von Maur customer service that their Clinique GWP starts on April 17th–does anyone have any info about the contents of the GWP?

    • beautybonus says:

      Thank you, I’m so glad you like the site! And I am currently writing today’s post, new beauty events at Bloomies and Bergdorf Goodman, but I keep getting distracted by Little Black Bag (free nail polish with any new VIP purchase today!) I’ll have it up later today.

  40. kaitlinaudrey says:

    Oops. I just realized today is the 18th. I thought it was the 17th & the post for today had already been written. I should have known better than to doubt you! : ) Thanks again for keeping us updated!

  41. Kate says:

    Lancome has made a change to the requirement at Macy’s . Receive a FREE 6-Pc. Gift with any 2-product or $35 Lancôme purchase Web ID: 826143

  42. fran says:

    This morning Macys sent me a email offering quite a few Clinique products with a free gift plus free shipping at $50. There are other beauty offers, also.

  43. fran says:

    Clinique Bonus at Lord and Taylor
    by beautybonus
    It is now Clinique Bonus Time at Lord and Taylor. Online and in store while supplies last with any $30 Clinique purchase you will receive this free eight piece gift valued at $85: I RECEIVED THIS NOTICE ON JUNE 17, 2013

    • beautybonus says:

      Hi! Thank you, I know this page isn’t updated I can’t type a lot right now due to the tendonitis but I did post about this yesterday. It is a lovely bonus!!

  44. fran says:

    Bon ton has free shipping today. Spend $35 on foundation or skincare and get a lovely free gift bag of goodies. June 19, 2013

  45. fran says:

    You should update this page from 5/27/13. It doesn’t seem fair to all the people who read it, check it and rely on it.

    • beautybonus says:

      I know I’m far behind, but health issues have got me sidelined for now. Its the best I can do to update the main site 2-3 times a week right now. I hope to be back at full strength soon.

    • beautybonus says:

      I do not have dates for this year’s box yet but last year it was available online at several stores on November 5. I am already looking for information and will post as soon as I find any! This site has a preview of this year’s box but is a UK site so I don’t know yet if the US version will be the same or slightly different.

  46. Mandy says:

    Oh My Gosh! Thank you so much for this site. This saves me so much time searching. I live in Korea where all the good makeup is twice the cost and the GWP are actually for sale at their ‘value’ price! I get my makeup shipped to my family and they put it into my care packages.

    • beautybonus says:

      I’m so glad you like the site and that it helps you save on makeup. I can’t even imagine not having the good stuff readily available! You are so lucky to have such a nice family that they will send you care packages!!

  47. Sgreen says:

    Belk added a lovely bag with beautiful or pleasures a lipstick and more to my order of 50 dol or more in Estée Lauder. Bonton and belk currently have Clinique gwp. How do you know what offers belk has. I just lucked up on this one, they don’t have a gwp page.

    • beautybonus says:

      Yes, unfortunately Belk does not have a GWP page, like most other sites do. They normally advertise the main GWPs on the main beauty page, but I have, as you did, occasionally stumbled upon some “hidden” GWPs at Belk. I wish they advertised them better! But I’m glad you found the Estee Lauder one (I had missed it) so I can share it with everyone on the site!

  48. fran says:

    today I received a Macy’s alert for Clinique – providing a free ‘all about eyes’ and a gift bag with purchase. didn’t find much more after that.

  49. fran says:

    Online starting today, Bloomingdales has a free Estee Lauder bag with goodies with a $45 purchase. the promotion reaches the stores in a few days

    • beautybonus says:

      Are you asking about the Mother’s Day PWP? It has been out a while now, so it will end when the stores sell out, it has already sold out online at Dillard’s, and I don’t know if they are offering it in-store anymore. Does that answer your question? If not please let me know!

  50. fran says:

    Von Maur sent me email offering the same Estee Lauder GWP as Bon Ton, Belk, etc. They have free shipping and returns.

  51. Jennifer T says:

    Just found your – great info! I was looking for exactly what was included with the Clinique GWP. I, however, did not see the 8 piece GWP available online just now (10:30pm EST), so maybe they are sold out? I did, however get the 5 piece plus the 4 minis AND a free Smart serum 2-wk supply with the promo code “SMART” (I think you need a $35 total purchase for that to work, though.) Just thought I’d pass that along, too! But thanks for the info! Very helpful!

    • beautybonus says:

      Sorry for any confusion, yes the 8 piece gift is the free gift plus the samples chosen at checkout. I forgot about the coupon code though, thanks for mentioning it! And so glad you like the site!

  52. Lancome_Lover says:

    Just to let you know, Lancome at Belk IS IN PREORDER for their gift, which will launch in stores on August 31st. The bag is super cute and the products are really awesome. They even have a step up addition for spending $70 which includes day cream, cleanser, and a body treatment. Qualifier is $35.00.

  53. Le Nguyen says:

    I was waiting for Estee Lauder to have event for gift with purchase at Macy’s but haven’t seen lately since May, so I just googled to see if anyone knows. This website caught my attention and I just order one Item from Estee Lauder Gift with Purchase at Neiman Marcus. WOW…I got what i wanted. I love the gifts with purchase because they give out variety of items from lipstics to lipglosses, creams, lotion etc…so useful and helful and make customers feel good to try out different things and would end up buying more items…good marketing tool!

    thx so much!

    • beautybonus says:

      Thank you for stopping by, I’m so glad you find the site helpful! And so glad you were able to get that gorgeous bonus from Neiman Marcus, it sure is pretty!!

    • beautybonus says:

      Yes! Re: Lancome this is what is coming the rest of the year: GWP at Boscov’s late November (then the same bonus at Von Maur and then Belk in early December), GWP at Lord and Taylor in mid December, and then one at Macy’s just before Christmas. There may also be one (with a higher-priced buy in) at the Neiman Marcus Scent Event which starts November 23. I hope that helps! Oh and last year there was a great PWP direct from Lancome but I have no idea if they will be doing another one this year.

  54. MaryannSgambati says:

    Please send me e mails when GWP at either Norstrom’s,Macy’s Lord and Taylor worked for Clinique at Macy’s NYC since I’m no longer receiving gratis try to get as many bonuses as I can.Thanks!!!

    • beautybonus says:

      I just tested it and it looks like LANCOME5B has sold out, but the other code LANCOME5A is still working. Bummer! Thank you for letting me know, I will update the site! (If you have your heart set on the Precious Cells, you might try calling a Lancome counter and see if they can ship you one).

    • Tiff says:

      Ah ok. What’s the difference between 5A and 5B? Seems like Precious Cells is more popular. I’m not too familiar with that collection from Lancome.

    • beautybonus says:

      5A has Absolue Premium Bx and 5B has the Absolue Precious Cells; I don’t use either of them but from what I understand the Precious Cells is more expensive and maybe has more oomph for wrinkles (if that makes sense?). Although I read some reviews and many people prefer the scent of the original Absolue. I have no idea if that helps, sorry I don’t know more about these lines!

    • beautybonus says:

      Sorry for my late reply but there is a new one today at Saks, then there will probably be one direct from Lancome at the end of the month (but with a $60+ minimum purchase) and then at Macy’s in early February (with a $35+ minimum purchase).

  55. Emma says:

    Hi! Any idea where the next in-store Estee Lauder GWP is? I’m passing through the US next week & have one shopping day but can’t get stuff delivered. Thank you!

  56. Reggi says:

    Do you have any idea of when the next Lancome GWP at Nordstrom will be? They carry a particular lipstick shade that I can’t seem to find anywhere else!

  57. KathyPA says:

    Hi, I got a postcard from Macy’s advising that Clinique will have from 6/17 to 6/27 a deal (also on their web site) that if you purchase any full-size 3-Step formula (soap, clarifying lotion or moisturizer) they will give you free a 10 day supply of the other 2 Steps (one per client of course while supplies last). Since am in need of their soap, guess where I’m going Wednesday after work? (providentially a Macy’s is now sorta on my way home).

  58. Connie Raymo says:

    Thanks so much for creating this site!!!! It’s an easy way to get great value out of high priced products! I buy at least 4 times a year and share this site with all of my fb friends and family. Thanks again for all of you research:))

  59. Pamela Dunn says:

    Hi there, I live in Scotland however I’ll be on vacation in Las Vegas from 25th Sept to 4th Oct 2015 and I ‘m looking for any premium products that have a bonus time during these dates.Can you help me out please?

    • beautybonus says:

      Ok, here are the upcoming bonuses for late September/early October. The ones you should be able to find in Las Vegas are marked with a *, though you may want to call the stores directly to check specific dates. I hope you enjoy your trip to Las Vegas!

    • Pamela Dunn says:

      Thank you so much for the info. I’ve taken a screenshot and will have it on me during my vacation!! Best info I’ve had! Thanks again!!!

  60. Deb says:

    Hello, I see that with a $55+ Clinique purchase, you get two free chubby sticks in addition to the GWP. It’s on the main Von Maur page and you mentioned it in your post. When I add $55+ items to my cart, however, I’m not seeing how to add the chubby sticks for free. There’s no indication that it’s working. Any thoughts? Thanks!

    • beautybonus says:

      I’m on mobile and can’t test it right now but my first thought is that the step up gift is probably sold out (they often sell out before the main GWP sells out). If you’re not getting a pop up on the VM site asking to pick your colors, then they are sold out. I’m so sorry I know that’s a bummer when that happens! Did you look and see if you like the free gift at Saks right now? And there is one starting Monday at Macy’s.

  61. Deb says:

    Thank you! This is so helpful and makes perfect sense. I just love those chubby sticks and was hoping to score a couple extra ones. I’ll keep my eye out and try sooner next time I see a deal like this one come up.

    • beautybonus says:

      You’re welcome! And I just found out today that the step up at Macy’s is unfortunately not Chubby Sticks; it is a full size 7 Day Scrub Cream or Foaming Sonic Facial Soap when you spend $55 on Clinique.

  62. Rose says:

    I see Lord&Taylor has a 7-piece Clinique GWP for purchases over $32 on the website, just want you to know.
    I really like this site. It is so up-to-date, and I always check it up when I need to get cosmetics. I believe many other people are benefiting from these information. It will be even better if you can post upcoming GWPs if you know them coming up in advance. Thanks a lot!

    • beautybonus says:

      Hi! I saw the Clinique GWP too, but I’m so leery about posting L&T offers since I’ve heard from so many people that have had problems with ordering GWPs and inventory issues with them; especially like this one where it’s not an Official Bonus Time. I did mention it in the Clinique eyeshadow palette post but not sure if everyone saw it.

      I’m so glad you like the site!! I like the suggestion of a “coming soon” page; something I can maybe add after the first of the year when it slows down (the rest of the year is sooo busy and I just don’t have time for anything new!).

  63. Lily says:

    “Right now at Bloomingdale’s when you shop Lancome spend $35 and get a free mini Definicils Mascara, spend $50 and get a mini Renergie Lift Multi-Action Night, and spend $100 and get a free full size eyeliner” I think this is only online. Also, they are sold out of the $35 and $50 gifts
