Clinique Bonus Time


The bonus time at Nordstrom happens two times per year, in November and in May. However, Nordstrom often creates mini gift with purchase online-only offers (usually a 6-piece gift with no step up gifts) anytime during the year, especially during their Anniversary Sale.



The next regular Clinique bonus time at Nordstrom is expected to start in July 2024 as part of their Anniversary Sale (based on the previous year’s schedule).

    What happened to the step up gift? (Nov. 4, 2019 bonus)

    • Alice

      I am asking the same

      • Mary Lou
        November 6, 2019 at 1:07 am (5 years ago)

        I’m wondering that also. According to the card I received in the mail there was supposed to be a step up gift at $55.

        • Alice
          November 6, 2019 at 8:14 am (5 years ago)

          maybe the step up gifts are available in stores only?

          November 7, 2019 at 4:46 am (5 years ago)

          I saw that in the mail too!
          I accidentally threw the ad away, thinking I won’t need it.

          Is there a code for the step up gift?

  22. Mary Beth Stearns
    June 28, 2019 at 5:55 pm (5 years ago)

    I would love if you offered a brush mirror combo in the gift with purchase. I got the last one years ago, and still have it. Totally ready for a new one. It’s convenient, works like a charm and travels well.
    Thank you.

    I purchased makeup at Nordstrom yesterday, and received the gwp. It didn’t have the quickliner pencil that was advertised above. Is there a way I can get it? It was the reason I visited Nordstrom and also didn’t buy a black quickliner.

  24. Linda
    May 17, 2019 at 6:40 pm (5 years ago)

    I ordered a bonus and even better makeup. I received the makeup and did not receive the bonus. WHY?? If I don’t get the bonus, then I want to return the makeup with no shipping.

    I ordered Clinique eye cream rich on 2/23/10 for $54.00 I did so on the Nordstrom website which advertised a gift with bonus for Clinique for the REPAIR kit. I was very disappointed when I picked up my order today at Nordstrom in Tyson’s Corner and it did not include the gift with purchase. Can I return this order and put in a new request in order to get the bonus that was shown on the website but was not included with my purchase? Please advise

    • Alice

    I just recieved my order (placed 1/20/2019) I am following up on the gift with purchase, for online orders . I am hoping that it is following in a separate shipment as no mention was made of it not coming. I saw that an update was posted on 1/25 that the gift is sold out and am hoping since I placed the order 5 days previously that I will be receiving this gift.
    Thank you

      On Jan 20 Nordstrom changed the gifts and during the change (for a few hours) there were no Clinique gifts available. If the gift didn’t appear in your shopping bag during checkout, most likely, you will not receive it. Please, always check your shopping bag before placing your purchase.

    Do you have foundation even better with spf 15 in beige 08

    November 18, 2018 at 1:01 am (6 years ago)

    Not a good value if the company can’t keep a regular product, clinique acne solutions in fresh ivory available for purchase. Was ready to purchase on bonus as would never pay $30.00 for an oz of foundation otherwise. Unfortunately, not available. Will have to look for another line.

    You are so lucky in the USA to get a bonus if you spend 28 dollars

    I could have sworn that a few days it said that the $55 bonus were two contouring chubby sticks… Was this a change or is it that that sold out? I was chose to wait for the Nordstrom bonus instead of doing the bonus because I was really looking forward to those chubby sticks. TIA.

  44. Leigh Speal

    bubblegum pop (lipstick) and the chubby sticks (baby tint and voluptuous violet) are popular, and I hope you will have them in a clinique gift again. Lately, the colors have been too bright and bamboo pink has been in gifts too many times.

    • Looby
      May 11, 2017 at 5:28 pm (7 years ago)

      Totally agree. I’ve got 3 or 4 ugly bamboo pink lipsticks already

    May 3, 2017 at 4:58 am (7 years ago)

    The lip colors were awful in every gift this Spring, but this gift has to be the worst! How old is Bamboo Pink and rinse-off solvent. I miss having the new colors.

    I ordered a moisture surge intense ( $37.00 today which should have qualified me for a free gift from Clinique ( bonus ). It would not allow me to put in a promo code to receive my free gift. I am not happy about this. The only reason I ordered from you is for my Clinique bonus. It was a $27.00 minimum for the bonus. Order # 832001151

    I also ordered a powder the other day ( Stay Neutral ) which was $24.00 and never received my free three samples. That order # 831594876

    Please take care of this issue.

    • Alice
      November 24, 2016 at 11:58 am (8 years ago)

      If you were unable to enter the promo code at checkout, you will not receive the gift. It means that the offer has ended.

    Hi, today I went to nordstorm Clinique counter and got my bonus but when I came home and checked my bonus there was no foundation on my bonus bag. My question is should I go to again Clinique counter and ask about foundation?

  54. Alison
    May 14, 2016 at 7:33 pm (8 years ago)

    I have been very disappointed in the last 2 bonuses offered. I have never used the mascara, but love any of the moisturizing products, lipsticks, and the bags. But these last collections have been very “orange” in the base color? And no option for a blue-type based lip color. I wish there was a way to swap products– I used to do it with my 2 sisters and my Mom–but they have all passed a way( seriously)
    Also, I have a DRAWER FULL of mascara if anyone wants them? I also donate all sorts of products from hotel stays, etc. to the local Women’s Shelter–which is good. Self-care is always important–but even more important during hard times.

    p.s. Thanks, Alice!!! Great site 🙂

      June 3, 2016 at 9:53 pm (8 years ago)

      Hi Alison, I saw your comment about the mascaras which are my absolute favorites in these gift bags, so if you really want to empty your drawer let me know 🙂 i think i might still have 2-3 unused bags in case you’d like them! Very sorry to hear about your mom and sisters!

    April 26, 2016 at 1:10 am (8 years ago)

    As we know, many of the Clinique items and almost any combination of lesser-priced items will cost more than $32 dollars, so I think most of us would rather have the qualifier be $32 for 8 gifts instead of $27 for 7 gifts.
    This might also encourage people to utilize the Nordstrom offer over the Macy’s and Dillards offers, if they’re choosing only one offer.

  58. Ximena
    February 13, 2016 at 5:05 pm (8 years ago)

    We shopped at Nordstrom in Austin, TX on Jan 8th and they told us they were unaware of any GWP… So we didn’t get any!

    • Alice

      the last regular bonus time at Nordstrom was in November 2015, then in January the gift was again in stock on Nordstrom website – online only.

    How do I get the Extra Bonus for spending $55 or more…….the makeup remover

    • Alice
      May 22, 2015 at 12:00 am (9 years ago)

      The Extra bonus should appear in the basket after entering one of the promotion codes (WARM or COOL). I’ve just tried it and it is not really being added anymore, I believe it has been sold out. However, the 2 basic gifts are still in stock.

  63. Beanwean
    May 15, 2015 at 6:27 pm (9 years ago)

    Different Grape and Raspberry Glace again! I’m so tired of both of those colors (plus I have several of each) that I’m skipping the bonus completely, just like I did for last at Macy’s. They really need to introduce some new lipstick colors.

  64. tyra
    May 14, 2015 at 6:36 am (9 years ago)

    It is not working. After applying code when I checked out the gift has been gone.

    Hello! The most recent Nordstrom Clinique bonus for Nov 2014 seems to be available online already. I was on there checking what I might get and it suddenly popped up in my shopping cart. link:

    May I also suggest to you this wonderful value set that sells for about $39 on their site called “color cravings”. The items in it are full size versions, not tester size like in GWPs (except the moisturizer is only 1 oz, but that’s still just .7oz short of the smallest size they sell) great deal esp. around bonus time! Good day 🙂

  66. Kristin
    February 27, 2013 at 10:34 pm (11 years ago)

    Hi everyone. I was just at the Nordstrom Clinique counter and I asked when the next bonus time was. She said not until May, but I signed up for an appointment on March 9th (they are also doing it March 8th) and she said they are doing a gift with $50 purchase those two days only. I was planning on getting the even better serum anyway so the $50 is no problem, but $50 seems like a lot for a GWP, hope its a good one. Does anyone know whats in it?

    • Ann
      December 28, 2013 at 1:54 am (10 years ago)

      Thank you for the info, Kristin!! Maybe the same conditions apply also for the next year of 2014? Does anybody know?
