Pandora March Free Bracelet Promo

pandora-braceletsI can’t believe we’re already in March, but it’s that time of year again! In a few weeks, Pandora will be offering a free bracelet with $100USD ($150CAD) purchase. The dates run from March 21st to the 24th and should be available throughout North America. I am so glad that the new Spring 2013 collection will be released right before this promotion on March 11th. There are a quite a few charms I have my eye on and I can never resist getting something for free.

This offer is for the silver barrel clasp bracelet, a retail value of $65USD. If you would like to substitute leather or oxidized bracelet, or upgrade to the two-tone, gold, or station clip bracelets, you will have to check with your store. Every store is a franchise and operated independently so their policies will also vary. This includes whether you will be able to get more than 1 bracelet if you purchase greater than the spend.  This promo will not be offered online, but you can order over the phone at any participating retailer.

This is my favorite promo of the year and I am so excited that it’s almost here!

    I can’t wait either! I have set money aside for this. I will have to take a look at the spring collection again. Is the Amor heart charm available yet for purchase?

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      The Amour charm isn’t coming out until April. :)

  • Jennifer Wr

    Oh boy, I can’t wait, but I am wondering if they will still have the new charms that I want by then…(the castle, the fairy tale book…).

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Yes, they should! The release will be next week and lots of stores already have the charms in :).

    My bf and I already went last month to put what we want, as well as the free bracelets, on layaway so I don’t have to worry about charms or bracelet sizes running out during that weekend. Plus, two of the charms I wanted were out of stock at the time so they’ve ordered it and will arrive well in time for the promo. :) In total, we’ll be getting five free bracelets. LOL

    I just can’t wait for the September promo because I’ll be waiting to get the new bangle until then!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000351707936 LaShona Johnson-Peterson

      Wow! Where do you reside that a pandora store has layaway? That’s awesome

      • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

        It depends on the store policy, but my Concept store (owned by Ben Bridge) has 30, 60, and 90 day layaway plans. :)

      • http://birdsftw.blogspot.com Maya

        LaShona – I try to avoid shopping at our local concept store at all costs. The associates are very snooty and often act like helping you is a bother to them. I get my Pandora from a Ben Bridge with wonderful associates that go the extra mile.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Wow, good planning! I know I won’t be able to wait that long to get the bangle ;).

      • http://birdsftw.blogspot.com Maya

        Oh, yes! I always plan ahead. LOL

        While I’d prefer not to wait for the bangle, I will have my hands full with everything from the March promo so I’m able to wait. Hehe.

    I am in SC and happened to stop at my concept store yesterday. They already have the spring collection available! There will be more coming in April, May and June!! Lots of summer themed charms coming!!

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Nice! None of the new stuff is at my store yet. The summer collection is very exciting! :)

      • Gisele

        What can we except in the summer collection?
        Any sneak peaks available?

      • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

        Soon! ;)

  • Orialis

    When I asked at my local pandora store about the promo, the sales associate mentioned that with the free bracelet I could just connect it to my current one and make one long bracelet which I can wrap twice, I guess like the leather ones. Have you done this before? or recommend it?

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      I do that with my 5-station clip and single clip multi-strand bracelets. Otherwise I find double wrapping a silver bracelet to be too cumbersome since they’re not as flexible as the leather.

      • Orialis

        That was my first thought , that you can connect 2 to make a necklace. I cant imagine two to make one bracelet. Thank you ladies!

    • Velma

      You can connect two bracelets together and make a necklace. That is what I’m planning on doing w/my free bracelets.

  • Frances

    What website would this promo be available? Can you show me the links? Too bad it’s not in Australia…

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Here is a list of authorized online retailers in North America.

      • Frances

        Thanks, do you know which one might ship to Australia?

      • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

        Authorized retailers are not allowed to ship outside the US :(.

  • Ailyn

    Hello, I just found your blog I think is great. Thank you for all the news about Pandora. Do you have any info on which charms are going to be discontinued? Is that even possible to find out? Thank you, have a great day :)

  • Ashley

    Leann, doesn’t The Jewel Hut ship Pandora here to the USA? Just checking….

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      It is Jewel First (who is technically not an authorized dealer), but I’ve bought from them before :).

    • http://www.thejewelhut.co.uk The Jewel Hut

  • Shuba

    Hello, is there any special promotions happening in the UK do you know?…

  • Jaycie

    Hi, is this event first come first serve or doesn’t matter as long as you spend over $100?

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Hi Jaycie, usually it’s until supplies run out, yes.

  • Joan

    Hi Leann Have you gotten any news about the sea collection for pandora? I heard about a oyster with a pearl that sounds soo cute!

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      More info soon! :)

      • Joan

        can’t wait :D

  • carolina

    how do you find out about promotions? I have not seen any listed anywhere and i am a member of the club and like them in facebook.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      I have my sources ;).

      • carolina

        ;) i get it. i just wanted to make sure i wasn’t missing something somewhere!

      • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

        Haha, nope. Pandora usually doesn’t give word of promotions until the week or a few days before.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000351707936 LaShona Johnson-Peterson

    I am so excited. I went a picked out my charms and was able to get two free bracelets for spending $200. I will be gifting a bracelet to my mom.

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Nice! I’m glad your store let you get two! :)

  • vana

    is there any online store that have the free bracelet promo or any stores that I can order from over the phone that you know of?

    • http://charmsaddict.com Leann

      Online stores are not allowed to offer the promo, but if you call the physical store they will usually accommodate you. :)

  • natdm25

    Hello! I know that I missed the March bracelet promo event, but is there another in the fall time? I thought I remember one in the fall a few years ago…

    Thanks!

  • Robin Lindsey Scarisbrick

    I am new to Pandora and would like to start my first bracelet. I’ve heard about the free bracelet promo but am not sure how to go about it. Is it offered anywhere Pandora is sold or does it have to be a Pandora store? Can you pre-order? If so how? Thanks for any help, Robin

    • Leann

      All Pandora stores are franchises, so it’s up to them to participate in the promo but most do. Some stores will allow you to preorder and get your charms reserved. You should call your local store to ask for details :). Have fun picking out your new Pandora!

  • Sarah Anne Collins

    no march promo in new Zealand disappointing :( I could how ever do with some ideas on what to put with my animal charms not sure what to use in-between them to make them stand out any Ideas? also does it really stop the bracelet from breaking by putting the clips on?

    • Leann

      Pandora recommends the clips so that the weight is evenly distributed among the segments, and so the charms don’t catch on the threading, which can also weaken the bracelet. I think it’s helpful, yes. I’ve got clips on all my bracelets :).

      You could add spacers in between your animal charms to make them pop.

      • Sarah Anne Collins

        Ok so thats me shopping for clips then I have the gold bracelet so I wouldn’t want it to break ive just never had anyone tell me they were nessary before. Yes I will look for spacer too my favorites were the lights spaces but are retired now they would of looked great in between. Wish there was a pandora trading website so you could swap to get the ones you want or need as part of a collection. Ebay and other sites seem to have alot of fakes at the moment .

      • Leann

        That’s not good! All the associates are suppose to recommend the clips. :/ I’d be careful shopping on eBay but there are still authorized retailers that have retired spacers including perlenodense.com. :)

      • Sarah Anne Collins

        thanks Leann I brought new clips now so all set I ended up putting red charms with the animals I got the black Friday present so red and pink for that one , I realize you may not all buy second hand , but would you have any advise on buying second hand? I have seen a lot of Pandora charms marked 925 ale for example the shell with the gold star fish but it doesn’t have the gold on the starfish, I was told weight was a good indication of Pandora been authentic? we have second hand gold and silver seller in our town and they have a handful of Pandora charms when I go in , some are retired which I love but on the other hand am I just wasting my money..

      • Leann

        I’m on a lot of groups on Facebook that sell second hand, and I’ve only had good experiences. The seashell comes in a silver version; weight is a good indication, you can also check to see if they’re magnetic (if so, it’s fake). Take a look at my guide on fakes: http://www.charmsaddict.com/how-to/how-to-spot-a-fake-pandora-charm/.

      • Sarah Anne Collins

        thanks for that Leann, I guess it can be a bit of a gamble when buying online and on groups but is the only way I get the rare charms I want .i have holy grail, mushroom, lion, sideways fish, princess and the pea, red present black Friday, royal carriage, royal wedding heart , spotty charms and few more, really want a whiplet not sure if that’s his name lol he’s soo cute its the staff charm , one day maybe lol were did you get yours?

      • Leann

        I think they call him Winniper, I got mine online. I love it!
