Cosmetics Class Action Lawsuit

Attention, ladies!! Apparently there was a class action lawsuit against some major cosmetic manufacturers at the following department stores:

  • Berdorf Goodman
  • Bergner’s
  • Bloomingdale’s
  • Boston Store
  • Carson Pirie Scott
  • Dillard’s
  • Gottschalks
  • Herberger’s
  • Macy’s
  • Neiman Marcus
  • Norstrom
  • Parisian
  • Saks Fifth Avenue
  • Younkers

The lawsuit alleged that department stores and cosmetics companies conspired to sell products at the manufacturers' suggested price only - never at a discount. It also alleged that special promotions were coordinated in a way that ensured there would be no competition among stores.

This is a win-win for consumers. You may claim a free product at any of the stores listed above. I did this tonight at Macy’s. I waited in one of four lines for about 5-10 minutes and got my free item. They were already down to only two Clinique products that they had to offer. I received a Clinique Moisture Surge Gel Cream. It retails for $34.00. I was happy to get anything. If it’s free – it’s for me!

Go get it while you still can!
