Walgreens Beauty Sample Box Free With $30.00 Purchase


I received a coupon printout at the register from Walgreens recently, and wanted to share the information with you if you aren't already aware of it (which I wasn't!). All you need to do is spend $30.00 on beauty products, use your Balance Rewards Card, and you'll receive the printout which contains a coupon code for a free Beauty Sample Box.

Go to their web site, click the "Savings & Deals" link near the upper right corner of their home page located next to the Balance Rewards Card icon, then click the link that says "Learn More" under "Beauty Advisors + You". Follow the quick and easy instructions to enter your code and claim your prize. The current box, which I believe is the second box offered since they began this promotion last month, just became available today. I claimed mine, and it says that the offer is valid until January 25. The first box sold out quickly, so don't wait to redeem your code. You can also claim more than one box if you make multiple purchases and receive additional codes.

My understanding is that the promotion runs through February 14, and a third box will be introduced after this second box expires at the end of January.

  1. Do you have to spend $30 at one time or does it count all your beauty purchases together untill you reach $30? Thanks.

    1. The Balance Rewards card only keeps track of points, not really prior purchases cumulatively, so it would all have to be in one trip.

  2. Have you heard whats in the box? i've been searching online and can't find details for what was in the first box or what the second box will be like.

    1. I have not heard yet. The first set of boxes from December should be received soon I would think, so I'm also checking to see what might be in them. I think each series of boxes has different products...that is, December's had certain products, and January and February will each have different products.

  5. OK, maybe that's why I can't find it. I've tried following the directions both on the certificate and from 2 people at Walgreen's stores. The people at the stores had NO IDEA what I was talking about. When I follow the link I never even get the option to "Redeem".

    1. I just checked and it looks like they're already gone. Poster above said they were sold out on the first day :/

    2. If they are running out on the first day, then they do not have enough boxes. I have a worthless code after spending my money thinking I would get a box. I had no Idea this was a scam.

  6. Back in late December I entered the code online it went through and said it would ship to my house. So do you know when its gonna get here or if i'm gonna get it at all because I heard that the boxes are going by quick? please help thank you

  7. If you received a confirmation that it was going to be shipped, then you should receive it. I read somewhere that it takes 4-6 weeks, so soon, hopefully!

  8. I have contacted walgreens three times. The website never works to redeem the promo code. I have checked daily since before the new year. What a hook line and sinker waste of time. I have called and sent email messages. I will no longer be doing the Walgreens I would rather drive to Sephora or Ulta any day of the week as their customer service is poor at best. I have never not had to watch and wait for free beauty box sample types of things for any other place than this. I guess you get what you pay for there.

    1. I have had the same experience. They should only give out as many codes as they have boxes to give out. What a SCAM!!

  9. Mary and to all,
    I learned about this promo on Dec. 22. I did two transactions and received two codes. I followed directions and chose my boxes and received two confirmation numbers. Hopefully they will be mailed within the first two weeks of Feb. In regards to McDonado - Wallgreens should only give out as many codes as they have boxes. REALLY? And how many people actually look at these print outs let alone respond to them? I think it would be fair to say we have 500 boxes in three styles and everytime a code has been entered and a box has been selected it shows how many are still avail. This isn't rocket science and yes, the technology does exist. The real question is, why isn't it implemented? Now Wallgreen's and the like are subjecting themselves to bad criticism.
    Also they did list 3 boxes to choose from and included what they contained. There was no enter code by a certain date nor was there any mention of a new box in Jan, Feb or whatever. You simply eneterd your code picked out your sample box (1 of 3) and pressed "enter".
    Now it's just a matter of time to see how well this all worked out.

  10. I would just like to say that it is a scam! If you have that promo code, you should be able to receive a sample box. Not very fair to their customers. Shame on you Walgreen's!!!!

  11. Mary and to all,
    Yep it's me again (Jan. 27, 2013 @ 9:54pm posting)and I just wanted to report that I just received BOTH free beauty boxes from Wallgreens today (March 4, 2013). I got two "Radiant Skin" sample boxes, here's what they contained: 1oz tube Burt's Bees Milk & Honey Body Lotion, 1.7oz tube Simple Refreshing Facial Wash Gel and 1oz jar Curel Intensive Healing Lotion. It also contained one time use Foil packets: Loreal BB, Garnier Moisture Rescue Cream, Lumene Age-Defying Serum and "Over $15 in coupons" booklet. Be warned my coupon booklet has coupons expiring as soon as March 15, 2013!! Now that's crazy! All in all - very pleased!

    1. Thank you so much for sharing your experience! I've been looking online to see if anyone had received anything, and could never find where they had, so this is good to hear! Sounds like a nice assortment of samples though...yikes on the coupon expiration dates, and hopefully others will receive their before March 15! :)

  12. I had the same problem...nothing happened when clicking on "redeem" BUT, if you read below that. you click on 'Beauty Sample Box' highlighted in blue. Everything works fine from there :) Not a scam!! Lisa

  13. Mine arrived empty and smashed to bits. I got the code in December, claimed it immediately on the website and it just now arrived 12 March. SCAM.
