They do accept special packaging. You just can't get a special packaging item in exchange for your goodies.

 

The safest way is to check the outer packaging. There is usually as B2M sign on the inside of the outer packaging. If in doubt or if you have a picky store, just bring the outer packaging with you.

Hi everyone!

I have a question about the Back 2 MAC program

I skimmed through a couple of the pages on here & I did not get an answer to my question

and I really don't want to go through over 50 pages.

So my question is, can I Back 2 MAC limited edition packaging?

(I currently have some empy e/s pots from the Venomous Villains collection & some other collection.)

Which have been depotted into my palette.

I just want to know before I go so just in case I can't I don't look like an idiot. Lol.

Also, when you recycle 6 things, what am I able to get for free?

Last question, the closest MAC to me is a counter cry.gif (Sadly.)

and it is several towns over from me.

Do the counters accept Back 2 MAC?

Thanks!

post #1504 of 1625
Returning my first 6 empties tomorrow! I have so much makeup that I've never run out of anything. I only have empties cause I depotted. Haha
post #1505 of 1625

Yes you can B2B though but sometime they won't take depotted items ....so find someone nice when you go...:)...

Hey RayannaBanana,

I am very doubtful they will B2B for eyeshadows. You can get e/s only from the free-standing pro stores, and I think the only one in BC is in Vancouver (Robson & Howe, I believe).

Yes, today, my 2 depotted shadows weren't eligible. I didn't even try to debate it. I think I'm pretty much done with back to Mac, too many stipulations for soon to be recycled containers. I don't buy as much MAC as before anyway.
Maybe I should save them for a pro store visit. I feel like they would understand why i am submitting a depotted empty more than the freestanding locations
Does MAC recycle the items to make new product containers, or do they sell the recycled item to a third party. Just wondering, it's such a hassle sometimes.

Yes, you can turn in special packaging for B2M.

I would like to B2M for the Viva Glam lip bag from Tartan Tale collection (lippie + gloss).

Do I also have to add the bag?

any secondary packaging usually doesn't count as a b2m item. If I were u I'd keep the bag and just return the lippies
post #1511 of 1625

Thank you, kittenish!

 

This is good to know because I would really like to keep the bag.I am a collector of these kind of bags,boxes etc. blush-anim-cl.gif

Can someone tell me if I can b2m for a quad I have depotted?

Is it the old style quad? I depotted one old style quad and took a few other old style empty quads B2M when the new ones came out. I had no problems. The new ones on the other hand, maybe not. I was told palettes are accessories and MAC doesn't take those back. One with the metal pan still in them would be ok. Of course it depends on the MAC store/ counter "rules" Personally I would keep an empty quad and use it for travel. HTH!
post #1514 of 1625
Yes, you can B2M any quad, whether you bought it with shadows already in it, or you bought it empty.

Has anyone ever B2M the duo lash adhesive? Or accepted it as a B2M

Nope. Cuz it's not a mac product. They just sell it.

Hi, apologies if this has already been posted. I am from the UK but will be holidaying in NYC this summer. I have been saving my empty mac containers as I thought that you could B2M in the USA for a eyeshadow, lipstick or lip gloss, rather than just a lipstick like here in the UK. I just had a live chat with a UK mac artist and she said that in the USA I would only be able to B2M for a lipstick?

Can any confirm this for me? and if I can B2M for an eyeshadow, which stores will I be able to do that at? Times Square? Thanks in advance!!!

Yes, you can definitely get an eyeshadow, lip gloss or lipstick with back2mac at a standalone store only. The Mac counters inside department stores will only allow it for a lipstick. Hope you get some goodies in NYC!

post #1522 of 1625

Thanks so much for your reply! Im staying just off times square and I know there is a store in times square, but if you would recommend any other stores that would be great!!!

post #1523 of 1625
@becky123. Well ive never had a problem with the staff at TS per se, very helpful and used to the tourist perusing in.,, however it is times square and it gets very. Very crowded.

I usually go to Mac pro on 22nd st bet 6th ave and 5th.
(7 22nd st)
Its a second floor, so it's not full of the passerby, the staff is nothing but awesome, helpful, you'll get a pick of pro products Which is also a perk... They have workstations so you can try your items at your leisure...

Would I be able to B2M a MSFN in Dark if the middle plastic piece from the lid is missing?? My apologies if this has already been posted.
post #1525 of 1625
I would think so. Those things come off all the time!

My Mac store told me that after two weeks of launch I can B2M for Indulge items. I don't have any more empties to do so but are your guys familiar with that policy? In most cases, LE items in regular packaging with be SO within a two week period

That's incorrect. You can B2M for them as soon as they're available.

I didn't even notice this thread. So, so sorry. It was way down on the page and I just came back in here.

 

Do they still take depotted pots. The ones with the pan o' shadow taken out? And, also. Do you know if they take paint tubes? Because, I have a Flammable paint that sadly went bad and I'm highly allergic to it now.

Depots-depends on the location. But if not, you can just buy pans online and pop em in. Problem solved.
Paints-yes.

As always-anything glass, metal or plastic.
