Receiving a gift with purchase for Estee Lauder or Lancome requires either meeting a minimum purchase amount or buying a specific item. The gift with purchase promotions vary by store.
Throughout the year both Lancome and Estee Lauder run promotions during which time customers who purchase a specified dollar amount of their product receive a gift. The gift typically consists of a makeup bag, eye shadows, a lipstick and travel samples of the product. The minimum purchase amount ranges from $37.50 to $85, usually depending on the host store. Both the department store and Lancome or Estee Lauder advertise these promotional times.
Another way to receive a gift with purchase is by buying a specific product, often skin care. For instance, in January 2015, Macy's offered an Estee Lauder promotion. Customers who bought Estee Lauder skin care received samples of the line's most popular skin care products. Quite often both department stores and the makeup companies offer samples for customers who order online. Such customers often also receive free shipping if they spend over a certain amount.
Makeup stores such as Sephora offer promotions gifting customers for purchasing fragrance or makeup brands, including Estee Lauder and Lancome. Such gifts include free samples, free shipping and even tangible items such as robes or pyjama sets.
