Cosmetics lawsuit means we can get stuff FREE....
Ah yes, fellow wonkettes, I did indeed say FREE. FREE! Totally and completely FREE. God, I just LOVE free.
Several high-end retailers will be giving away $175 million in free cosmetics as part of a class-action lawsuit settlement.
Stores including Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Filene's, Lord & Taylor, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue will give away up to $25 in free cosmetics to customers under settlement.
Under the lawsuit, the department stores and cosmetics companies "conspired to sell products at the manufacturers' suggested price only - never at a discount." The lawsuit also alleged that special promotions were coordinated so that other stores could not compete.
The giveaway will start Tuesday, January 20.
In order to get the free merchandise, customers must sign a form stating they purchased products at one of these stores between May 29, 1994 and July 16, 2003.
No receipt or proof of purchase is necessary and products will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
