Walgreen's Beauty Sample Box

Recommended Posts

I didn't see any thread or forum related to this, so I figured I would start one and someone can move it if there's a better place for it.   whistling.gif   Haha!

 

I went to Walgreen's today and cashed in on their BOGO 50% off of Revlon Colorstay because I have wanted to try their foundation.  I got a foundation, a primer, and an eye shadow plus a couple of other things, and when I checked out, I got a coupon with my receipt that said my purchase had made me eligible for a Walgreen's Beauty Sample Box.  It said that after Jan. 11, 2013, I could go to their website and put in my promo code and redeem my box.  I've never come across this when shopping at Walgreen's so I was really curious if anyone else has ever gotten this or if it's a new thing, and if so, I'd be curious to see if it's a standardized sample box.  Either way, I plan to get it (who doesn't love free stuff???) and I'll try my hardest to post a pic when I get it in case anyone else is interested.

I just wasn't sure, but I always get the little ones from Target when I catch them.  I was just all excited because I like free stuff...lol   And I'm super excited to try the Revlon Colorstay foundation.  I've heard so many good things about it and have yet to find one that I really like.  I'm hoping I love it because it's a good price!

Target had something like this?

 

The girl who used to live in my apartment got a box mailed to her from Target that was full of coupons, shampoo, some tampons/pads, and a mascara. That would make sense...

 

I kinda want a walgreens box although its hard for me to spend that much money when I'm trying to coupon my way through 2013. Whoops.

They did last year, one of their bags could only be obtained if you purchased certain products which triggered a code on the receipt however no one knew exactly what triggered the promo code. It was a pain in the rear and people complained about it because when people asked Target more about it no one would say what triggered the code. Eventually Target did aware with the free bags with samples.

Yep, a friend told me about this in the end of December. There wasn't anything I was particularly interested in, so I passed.

Looks like they're temporarily out of boxes though... bummer, it would've been nice to see at least what was in them. I think there were supposed to be coupons as well.

If anyone has a code for this, don't forget that today is the first day you can redeem it!  I did mine first thing this morning, as I'm impatient...lol  

From what I read on the site this morning, this time they are doing them from today (1/11/13) to 1/25.  The trigger for the code is buying $30 or more of beauty products when you have a Walgreen's savings card, just in case anyone wanted to know.  I couldn't find anything showing past samples though, which I was kind of hoping for just to get an idea.  I'm not expecting anything too exciting but I do love my samples...lol

Wow, they are already gone - it says they will have a new box in March.
are you sure they are already gone? when I went to enter my code the welcome page said they were gone but I clicked though to the links in the how to page and got to the spot where I could enter my code.

FYI everyone this promotion is going on again ( I hear it all day long at work LOL) I spent 30 dollars today and got my code and redeemed online. They had 5-6 options for boxes including a baby themed one and a man themed one. The one I'm getting is called "Glamour" It started March 1 and there were still boxes left so hopefully they have more this time?

    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
