Tips on Tuesday: Free Makeup Today Only

Today, January 20, 2009, is the official beginning of the settlement for the class action lawsuit against cosmetic corporations. It is while supplies last (up to seven days, but my assumption is the allotment will be reached today). You can go to this website:
to get the information on the free cosmetics. I believe it will be a voucher to take to the store. There are specific retailers named who will honor the voucher.
FROM THE SETTLEMENT WEBSITE:
"As part of a class action settlement, $175 million worth of free cosmetics products will be distributed to members of the class (see below to determine whether you are a member of the class) for a maximum of seven days, while supplies last, on a first come, first served basis, beginning on January 20, 2009. No rainchecks will be issued. The products will be distributed at stores owned by the Retailer Defendants (see list immediately below).

The stores owned by the Retailer Defendants that will be participating in the settlement product distribution are the following:
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
Younkers

A class member will be eligible to receive, while supplies last, a maximum of ONE free cosmetics product from one of the Manufacturer Defendants from which he or she purchased Department Store Cosmetics1 during the class period, May 29, 1994 through July 16, 2003, from the list of products below. If a class member has only purchased products, during the class period, from one of the Manufacturer Defendants listed below, then that class member is only entitled to receive a free product from that Manufacturer Defendant. If a class member has purchased products, during the class period, from multiple Manufacturer Defendants, then that class member must choose the ONE free product he or she wishes to claim from one of those Manufacturer Defendants. Again, these products are only available while supplies last, and no rainchecks will be issued. If your store has run out of settlement products from the Manufacturer Defendant(s) from which you have previously purchased Department Store Cosmetics during the class period, then you may claim a product (again, while supplies last) from another Manufacturer Defendant."
It goes on to list the specific products you can obtain from the participating retailers. There is also a list of products sold that qualify you for the suit.

WOW, what happened with the makeup?

Hi Robyn! I'm so glad you said something to me about blogging at church yesterday.

I've added you to my iampooped.com as well as my nebraska section on angela-stevens.com - just wanted you to know!

Looking forward to reading your blog and participating the the discussions.

Wish I knew WHY there was a class action suit.

FYI--you have to go into the store (listed in the suit) and ask for free makeup. You have up to a week--but it's while supplies last.

I was too pooped yesterday to run into one more place. I decided I would miss this time.
