Dueling Beauty Promotions

Saks and Neiman Marcus are running beauty promotions at almost exactly the same time. The Saks event runs from Feb. 25 to March 6th and shoppers who spend more than $75 receive a tote bag with several samples.

The Neiman Marcus promotion also starts Feb. 25th and continues until Mar 7th. Shoppers who purchase $100 worth of cosmetics or fragrance products will get a Neiman Marcus tote filled with, you guess it, several samples.

So how does a shopper determine the best value? Don't worry we've done the hard work. Here's a tête à tête comparison of Saks -vs -Neiman Marcus. Who do you think is offering the better deal?

-- I just spent $200 at the YSL counter at Saks on Sunday (2/21). The SA didn't say anything about a free gift or tote. Do you think I have a chance to get one if I take my receipt on 2/25? I want a tote with goodies!
