You could win a free ‘surprise box’ from Marshalls this Friday

Anyone who knows me knows I love a good deal. I rarely go shopping without coupons and I can’t remember the last time I bought something at full price.

That’s why Marshalls has always been one of my go-to stores for clothes, home decor and pretty much everything in between. But while they are always full of great prices, they are offering a seriously can’t-miss-deal on Aug. 16.

Marshalls will be placing a “surprise box” in all stores across the country for shoppers to find. What’s in the box? They are all different, but Marshalls says they’re filled with “an amazing array of items across fashion, accessories, home décor, tech, beauty and more.” From leather clutches to trending home accents, makeup palettes and wireless headphones, the possibilities are endless. The approximate retail value of each box is $50.


There is no purchase necessary, but you will need to be the first person to find the box at your local Marshalls. While the promotion runs from 2-9 p.m. Eastern on Aug. 16, odds are the box will be found pretty quickly, so your best bet is to be at the store by 2 p.m. Eastern.

When you get to your local Marshalls, just search for a “blue/pink box” that has a sign next to it saying “YOU FOUND ME!” If you find a box, bring it to a store associate at the register to claim your prize. You can read the full rules by visiting Marshalls’ website before Friday so you’re prepared before heading to the store.

While all boxes are different (just like Marshalls’ stores), I got to take an early peek at one and let’s just say, it was pretty awesome. (Also, my box was blue, but Marshalls says the boxes are “blue/pink,” so there could be pink ones out there on Friday.)

Included in the box was a Fossil brand clutch, Nanette Lepore sunglasses, C&C California earrings and a large throw by Celerie Kemble. The Marshalls price value of that box is around $65, so $50 is just an approximate value.

If you don’t get one of the in-store boxes, you still have a chance to win one of 166 more boxes by writing your name, address, telephone number, date of birth, email address and the words “Marshalls Surprise Box” on a plain piece of paper and mailing it in an envelope to Marshalls Surprise Box Sweepstakes Entry, 211 Greenwood Ave. 2-2, Promo 511, Bethel, CT 06801.

Sweepstakes entries must be postmarked by Aug. 17 and received by Aug. 23 to be considered.

Actress Kaley Cuoco kicked off the surprise boxes at the Marshalls location in Tribeca, New York, on Aug. 13, where she handed out the boxes to unsuspecting customers. She posted on Instagram about the promotion, writing, “Stay tuned for more surprises this Friday!”:
