Not sure if I missed it, I don't see where you have a link on how to apply. I don't see one either on the website.

I qualify too!

No application necessary.

You just show up and pick your free product.

I would print a copy of the website, though, just in case you get a clerk that has no idea about the lawsuit.

But, that is why they stressed it is while supplies last!! First come, first serve.

Honesty policy I guess....if you didn't buy those products during those years, don't go get a freebie.

I wonder if they will last the full 7 days before they run out?

My aunt works for Estee Lauder and her counter got some Advance Night Repair for next Tuesday. She only got 15!

Carrie @ said...

OOhh...I guess I better be there when the mall opens.

I had a feeling this wouldn't last the full 7 days.

I mean, come on, free high end make up? How often does that happen!

Calee said...

This is crazy but I'll be there on Tuesday. Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks so very much for the detailed post. I had heard of the suit, but had no idea I qualified! Wow! Thanks so much!

Thanks for this post! I was able to snag a goodie from Macy's :)

Our Target store said they were not involved in this lawsuit though..just as a heads up.
