Do you know that department stores across the country are giving away high-end cosmetics & perfumes until Jan. 26 or when their supplies run out? Judging from the long lines,the giveaways will be gone before that date! In fact, I’m on my way out the door right now to get my free item.I am one of those consumers who bought a cosmetic between 1994 & 2003. A lot of folks are getting freebies who didn’t purchase anything. Here’s more from cbs5:
“A beauty product giveaway totaling $175 million starts Tuesday. The giveaway is actually a lawsuit settlement involving cosmetics manufacturers and department stores. Macy’s, Nordstrom, and others will hand out Chanel, Estée Lauder, L’Oreal and other high-end brands.
The defendant manufacturers were sued for allegedly fixing prices and preventing competition to offer discounts. No company admitted fault, but they agreed to give free products to consumers who say they bought an item between 1994 and 2003.
Lotions and perfumes will be valued at about $20.
The cosmetic class-action settlement runs until January 26, 2008, while supplies last. “(End of Excerpt) Go here to view the rest of the article,which lists all of the participating stores:(http://cbs5.com/consumer/lawsuit.makeup.perfume.2.914251.html
