Recessionista Breaking NEWS TIP
: Website SNOPEs reports that some FREE Cosmetics will be given away as part of a Class Action Lawsuit Settlement. Click here to read the details. I just called my local Nordstrom’s and they confirmed this news. They said there is a line forming at the store for the cosmetics. All supplies are on a first come, first serve basis. Today, Jan 20, 2008 , is the beginning of this offer.

Here’s the news from the Cosmetic Settlement page:

Update: I headed over to Nordstrom’s tonight after work to check this out, and its for real. I had to wait about 15 min in line to sign in and get the cosmetic of choice. I got a free bottle of Estee Lauder Night Repair which retails at 1 oz for $46.50 USD. This was not a trial size it’s the real product.
