I'm having a stupid moment...what do you mean keep the packaging? The "new york apple" sounds pretty.

They all keep the boxes and always have. I am not sure why but it is not just Nordies who does this.

I do all of my B2Ms at Macy's and they have never confiscated the packaging.

Re: another b2m policy...

Wow that's really stupid that they keep the box. I don't have any MAC products yet so I haven't had to deal with my local MAC store.

We don't keep the packaging... I don't know if Nordie's does something different or not, but at the store, we just mark the bottom of the lipstick and the UPC label on the package with a red mark to indicate that it is a B2M lipstick and isn't allowed to be returned or exchanged.

I think only Nordstroms does that because they always take the box.

I've only ever shopped at Belk for MAC stuff, and they've always taken the boxes.

It's not stupid actually, because we have to take the box for inventory purposes. Each lipstick is scanned out so we can track how many have been given out for the program.

And hey, at least you get a free lipstick. I'll take that, box or not!

Re: Another Back 2 MAC policy...

I don't really know about MAC that much here since we don't have the counter/store. But it's good to know, thanks for sharing though.

Re: another b2m policy...

It's no big deal to me. It's less garbage for me. Perhaps if you're giving it as a gift you can package it in a nice tin or something? At any rate, excess packaging is like getting those cheap plastic hangers with your clothes from the store.

ok stupid was a harsh word but if they have never kept the box since ive been taking them back dozens of times and then for them to take it now, i think anybody will at least be like "why?" and yes of course i know i do get a free lipstick out of it, but i still bought something from them to get it free, i didnt walk in there and say, "i want a free lipstick."

Re: Another Back 2 MAC policy...

If you are going to give it as a gift, maybe you could give it in a little lipstick case/holder that th person could carry it in there purse.

your right i wasnt trying to make this whole big deal about macs policy, i guess i was just venting at the time, its just that some people (including me) like to store their stuff in packages.

Soooo let me know if this is a stupid question lol I have never done the back to mac thing. Can you take the packages you get from exchanges in future exchanges? Again let me know if that's a dumb question I haven't done this before I'll be doing it for my first time on Monday lol.

^^^ If you mean Back 2 MAC a lipstick you got free from Back 2 MACing other items, then yes you can. Not a dumb question. :)
