A huge thanks to reader Candace for letting me know Target Style (via their Facebook page) confirmed additional details about the "three qualifying purchases" you will need to in order to get a code to print out on your receipt so that you can sign up for the free Target Beauty Bag.
Apparently there is no set list of qualifying beauty purchases that you can make in order to unlock the code, and qualifying purchases are just ONE way to get the code (with more ways to come). Target's response on their Facebook page:
"[the] code is based on a number of factors, including previous purchases. We do not have a specific few items to recommend in order to cause the code to print. Please do watch for other opportunities to get the Beauty Bag - coming soon."
Lots of companies like to reward frequent shoppers with free goodies, and it's of course entirely up to Target if they'd like to change the rules this time around and make this is more of a "loyalty reward" type of freebie. Admittedly, I'm more confused now about how to obtain this code than I was yesterday, so I just hope that Target releases the full details and rules as soon as possible so we all know exactly what it will take to get the code.
As always, as soon as I hear more details I'll let you know.
Thanks again, Candace, for the great info!
