I’ve bought a couple of times during these events both from Space NK and Barneys. I don’t go out of my way to reach the threshold, but if I know there are a few things I need, I’ll just buy them at once to get the gift. Sometimes, it really is fun to receive the samples for the high end products (like Augustine Bader) because I won’t normally take a risk and buy such a high priced item by itself without knowing how it feels or performs. If the gift was full of body products or repeat items, I would most definitely skip because it’s not worth it to me; the set has to be mostly new to me skin care with a good mix of other items thrown in.

When I was younger, I liked department store GWP events. I could buy a little here, a little there and spread my spending around. I wasn’t rich and a gift was nice. The budget wasn’t big. The only reward for buying anything at the cosmetics counter throughout the year. Some of the gifts were also a good value and had really nice, reusable bags. The purpose was to get you to buy stuff and then drop by the counter to buy more when it wasn’t gift time.

Things changed, The spend threshold increased, the bags got really cheap, some even smelled. The gifts became repetitive and I lost interest, How many bags did I really need or use? I think I asked the sales manager a couple of times of why always a bag? Why not a washcloth or something? I started to maybe only get one GWP per year instead of two. Stores stopped the gifts or limited them to private shopping nights, with a more significant spend.

Some people were loyal and some were not. Places like Sephora changed the game. I liked having a discount instead.

Do I still get GWPs? Sure, if I need something and I can use the stuff. Sometimes I don’t feel like a valued customer unless I spend enough for the SA to get a good commission, There is more staff turnover now, and I feel ignored. With bad service, I find another store.

The bonus is that I like the mini skincare samples for travel, along with mini mascaras and eye pencils. What I don’t like or don’t use goes to charity – the local women’s shelters ask for toiletries and such and I pack up a bunch of stuff knowing that someone else will use it.

When I was shopping mainly in department stores and using a lot of Clinique and Lancôme, I only purchased during GWP promotions. We had a number of department stores so there was always something going on. After Sephora opened, though, it was more fun to explore different brands, and drugstores also upped their skincare game, so I lost interest in those lines. More recently I switched to cruelty free brands so there is very little in these gifts that I want to try. Getting to the minimum spend also would entail buying more backup products and I am trying to avoid that these days.

I’d be tempted by fewer (quality) products in regular sizes as a gift – and to be able to chose, from a highly curated list of course, which ones I wanted. Not drawn to tons of fiddly containers w/ amounts too small to prove efficacy – plus nano-sizing = fear of using it up too fast, and so not using it regularly enough to get info I’d need beyond scent/texture. That experience is constricting instead of a treat. I don’t want to feel burdened by more stuff, more organization, more waste for a couple of applications. Make it worth my while, and I’d consider spending even the (for me) high dollar amount of Space NK’s offer above.
