HOT Clinique Deal: Spend $55 Get 14 Freebies + 10% off + Free Shipping

WARNING: I strongly suggest that you take a moment to read this through entire post before you try to take advantage of this deal. This offer is currently available on the Lord & Taylor website, which is not the most user-friendly website on the planet (especially if you're on mobile). If you follow my advice, it will save you a world of frustration--please trust me on that because I made mistakes the first time I ran through this scenario and I was practically pulling out my hair trying to make this work. So please learn from my mistakes and pay close attention to my post below!

If you can place your order via desktop, I STRONGLY advise you to do so. The Lord & Taylor website does not have a mobile version, and the entire process is much smoother from desktop.

Right now and while supplies last (AKA: don't wait on this one if you want it), when you spend $55 on Clinique on the Lord & Taylor website here, you will be able to get a boatload of freebies. Plus, they're having their Friends & Family sale right now, which includes 10% off beauty with code FRIENDS and free shipping on beauty orders $49+. And even if your order dips below $49 after the discount code, you will STILL get free shipping as long as your order was at least $49 BEFORE you entered the code!

The best way to guide you through this is with a scenario, so here we go:

For the purposes of this scenario, I chose the Clinique Perfectly Happy Gift Set, which is exactly $55. In my screenshot above, I had already added the code FRIENDS to my bag for 10% off, but DON'T DO THAT right off the bat. Just add at least $55 worth of Clinique products to your bag and STOP. Don't do a thing after that!

After you add at least $55 worth of Clinique products to your bag, a pop-up will appear on your screen, prompting you to select FIVE free samples (which you get with every beauty order at Lord & Taylor). There are more choices than what you see above; those are just the five I selected. So select your five free samples, click "add to bag" and STOP. Don't do a thing!

Another pop-up will appear on your screen, prompting you to select your free Clinique 7-piece set which you can preview HERE (two choices) and your free Clinque 2-piece set which you can preview HERE (two choices). Make your choices and click "add to bag". 

NOW you are ready to view your bag. If you view your bag BEFORE any of the steps above, that's when things may get wonky. I stupidly tried to view my bag before I selected the free samples above, and even though there are links you can click when you're in your bag to select your freebies, the links didn't work (at least not for me). I spent about 20 minutes trying to get my free samples and the links lead NOWHERE. So please don't make that mistake. Do exactly as I stated above and it should be smooth sailing (but if you do screw up like I did, just open an incognito window on your browser and start all over again). 

Once you're in your bag, enter code FRIENDS and your order total will go from $55 to $49.50, and you will receive free shipping (everyday free shipping on beauty orders $49+). Plus your 14 freebies, of course!

NOTE: If you want to save a few extra bucks and you don't care if you get that free Clinique 2-piece set, here's a tip. You can add $50 worth of Clinique products to your bag (I tested it out by placing two sunscreens in my bag for $25 each). You will still get the free Clinique 7-piece bag and your five free samples, and after the code your total will drop from $50 to $46.50. But because you order was over $49 to begin with, you will STILL qualify for free shipping, even after the discount code.

I hope that helps and again, if you follow my instructions above, you shouldn't have any problems with this deal. Fingers crossed!


  1. Thanks G for the detailed instructions..very, very helpful! Your awesome!

  2. G you are the bomb, thanks for being so meticulous!

  3. That was a very annoying process on the whole but thank you for sharing, G! I finally picked up the Beyond Perfecting Concealer/Foundation I was eyeballing, along with my first Cheek Pop and Bottom Lash mascara. Excited to see what free goodies come along with it, especially since, TBH, Clinique is not my favorite brand. So hopefully they'll prove me wrong. ;)

  4. Thank you so much for all the hard work you do to give us the best deals possible! I took advantage of the Clinique deal!

  5. I added $27 worth of items to my card and didn't get the prompt to add the gift. I've never ordered from this site before and, you are right, it is insanely frustrating. I might just wait for Macy's or Boston Store to offer the GWP.

  6. I only got the prompt for the five free samples after adding over $50 to my cart. I thought you got samples with any order, but the samples were automatically removed after my cart dipped below $50. What a mess!

  7. MAC cosmetics has 15% off for national best friend's day. Use code: MAC15
