Galleria Freebies

Run out of the house without your wallet? No problem!

Run out of the house without your wallet? No problem! As those in the know will tell you, the Galleria is full of freebies.

Go ahead—make that appointment with a personal stylist at Saks Fifth Avenue; no purchase is required. You’ll be interviewed about your size, tastes, and sartorial goals, so by the time you get to the private rooms of the “Fifth Avenue Club,” a stylist will have already picked out some finds. And if you’re deemed worthy, she’ll even set out champagne and refreshments (no guarantees, however).

Drop by the nearby Teavana (713-623-8665) for free samples of whatever is brewing there before heading around the corner to L’Occitane. (713-871-9920). Want a hand massage? All it costs is a certain level of mall-based intimacy (one-minute scrub included; ask for Derek).

Continue the pampering over at Origins (713-622-6363), which will give you a free facial—right down to a charcoal mask—and send you back out into the mall with a complimentary makeup job to boot. And should you for any reason find the treatment wanting, BareMinerals (713-292-2084) is always available for free touchups.

We suggest topping it all off with a truffle from Godiva (713-623-4707)—you’ll score one just for signing up for their free rewards club. In fact, you’re welcome to one a month, so there’s no reason not to make the free-stuff rounds a regular habit.
