Gift with Purchase (GWP) is a merchandising promotion that offers a free gift to customers if their shopping bag satisfies a specified conditions. For example:
Buy <something>, get <a product> at 100 percent off.
These promotions are especially very popular across the cosmetics brands like Clinique, Lancôme, Estée Lauder, Sephora, Philosophy, Clarins, Elizabeth Arden and many others.

If you would like to receive daily offer directly into your mail box, I recommend you subscribe on the left side of this page by entering your email address. Also, I highly recommend you follow me on Twitter or like me on Facebook page to get the latest offers and to avoid missing out on valuable and free gifts. I update the pages regularly.
The promotion times are very popular in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia. Things to keep in mind:
If you are living in those countries and especially if you are in a big cities, I would recommend you pre-ordering the bonus.
There are dates for each bonus period, BUT there is also a notice: “while supplies last” for each promo. That’s the reason why pre-ordering isn’t a wasting of time. As soon as I know about a new offer I will add it to my schedule list.
How to pre-order and secure the bonus gift?
You can reserve a gift like I do; you basically go in-store and say what you want. Ask about the bonus, they will inform you about the minimum amount so you know how much you need to spend in order to get the gift.
Are the GWP offers available online only?
It depends. Usually, the promotions are available online, as well as in-stores. When talking about Clinique bonus time promotion at a particular department store, I think the bonus is always available at the Clinique counter (in-store) and sometimes for online purchasing.
