Though your bag currently prequalifies for Gift(s) with Purchase, the free gift(s) will be added to your final shopping bag when you reach the minimum purchase threshold at final checkout. A minimum purchase does NOT include shipping charges, coupon discounts, or applicable sales tax.
Minimum Purchase Threshold
Minimum order total for special offers such as a gift with purchase or free shipping is calculated NET of discounts, tax and shipping. For example, if the total purchase needs to be $50 and your total is $50.00 before coupon discount is applied or shipping and taxes are added in you will NOT qualify for this Gift with Purchase or Free Shipping promotion. As with all promotions, Beauty Encounter reserves the right to cancel an order for any unauthorized, altered or ineligible use, and to modify or cancel any order or promotion due to system error or unforeseen problems. At it's sole discretion, Beauty Encounter may refuse the award of Gift with Purchase if it is believed a customer is abusing the program by returning merchandise used to secure the Gift with Purchase item.
