Been dreaming of the La Mer cream, but unsure if it’s worth it? Tiny samples almost never provide enough product to know if a product definitely works for you, but the SaksFirst Beauty Rewards Program is about to change all of that. The new initiative will provide members with free deluxe-sized samples of high-end cosmetics so that you can test them without having to purchase the full size.

This amazing deal does come with some caveats, though. For starters, you must be a SaksFirst credit card holder and spend $250 on cosmetics or fragrances to qualify for free beauty samples. The store will then gift you the first-tier Beauty Box after spending the initial cash. The good news is that the more money you spend, the more luxe the contents of the Beauty Boxes get. For devoted Saks customers, there are boxes for three other spending amounts: $500, $700, and $1,000. Each one will earn you another Beauty Box filled with amazing goodies and some extra perks as well.

The first Beauty Box comes with Lancôme Définicils Mascara, Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil, Prada Olfactories Cardo De Nuit Eau De Parfum, and Yves Saint Laurent Mini Rouge Pur Couture—plus you get a welcome reward and emails with exclusive content and insider access. And it only gets better from there. Higher-tiered Beauty Boxes are filled with brands like Trish McCovoy, Givenchy, Estee Lauder, and yes, La Mer.

Even though the rewards are free, shoppers will need to spend a minimum of $250 of beauty products. But for the luxury beauty aficionado, this rewards program might be the perfect fit.
