A little while ago, I ordered a gift for Luis from Nordstrom.
A few days later, two packages arrived for me, both from Nordstrom. The smaller box contained the gift I had ordered. And then there was this strange, rather large box.
When I opened it, it seemed empty, and I thought, "Why in the world did they send me an empty box??"
And with all this packaging inside as if it contained something fragile?
I was about to toss it all when I remembered that at the online checkout, they offered me three free samples with my purchase. I selected a perfume, an eye cream and something else, I don't remember. Maybe lip gloss or something.
I wondered why they weren't in the box with my purchase, but thought, surely they didn't send me a giant box, stuffed with paper for three measly little samples?
Oh yes, surely they did. I give you, my three itty-bitty free samples.
Notice how they are made of paper and plastic? And they're all under 2 inches in size? How that warranted so much packaging is beyond me.
I guess they really wanted to make sure I got my free samples, safe and undamaged. Once again, Nordstrom goes above and beyond--albeit, a little over the top in this case.
