Anyone that loves the Estee Lauder line of cosmetics has heard about their free gift with purchase promotions that run at different times through out the year. With a minimum qualifying purchase, you get what amounts to be a great selection of mini sizes of skin care products and different makeup items and sometimes a cool bag. These things are so popular that you can often find them for sale on Ebay shortly after it has ended.


As a makeup lover, you know that this line never goes on sale and rarely ever takes a coupon. This is the only way to get a deal when you are purchasing the beauty items that you need. So the question is how can you find out when this promotion is happening in your area?


Step One


Make a list of all of the department stores in your area. You want to make sure that you know when each of these separate places has their Estee Lauder Free Gift With Purchase running. Every department store will run at a different time so that the counters are never in direct competition with each other. It is one of the little known secrets to this event.


Step Two


Visit each store and start talking to a beauty advisor at the counter. You want to build a relationship with this person. They are not just a sales person but someone that is trained by the makeup line to be able to deliver accurate information about every single one of their products. You can discuss your concerns about your skin or what the newest makeup trends are. The key is just to build a relationship with them.


Step Three


Toward the end of the conversation, mention that you are truly interested in the Estee Lauder free gift with purchase promotion. Ask if there is any way that you can be notified before this counter were to go into this time period. Every beauty advisor keeps a book with clients names and numbers that they call before this event starts. She will be more then willing to put your name in her book.


Step Four


Once you have repeated this process with every store, all you have to do is to sit back and wait for the calls. You will always know in advance when this event will be going on at your favorite makeup counter. Just make sure to make extra room in your makeup case for all the great items that you soon will be receiving.
