Are You in It For the Free Gift With Purchase?

We've all been there: an innocent stop at the makeup counter for a quick look, and minutes later we're walking away $50 poorer, but with a goodie bag of "free" bonus gifts.

If I'm already planning to drop some cash, I'm not going to turn down a few extra goodies. But in general, I don't go for bonus gifts unless I can actually use the products. After all, the gift-with-purchase promotions are used to entice customers into spending more than they were planning to, just to qualify for the "exclusive" product. How do you handle these offers? Do you spend a little extra to get some fun beauty goodies, or do you refuse to be lured in by these offers?
