I track all Sephora offers, and this article covers all Sephora Sample Bags for 2018. Whenever Sephora releases a sample bag as a GWP, I will list it below. If I redeem any of these bags, I will write a separate article with a review and link the article next to the offer. Bags known to repeat each year get notated, and I will also note if the offer is a change from the previous year. This article tracks offers to note changes over time. These bags are available for all rewards members in the Beauty Insider program unless otherwise specified. Items are online only unless otherwise specified. Bags are in reverse chronological order.
The sample bags released on 11/24/18 have been released in past years, but they did not seem to take the place of the November bag released with 6-8 deluxe samples. It is possible that bag may not release at all this year, because of the 10 deluxe samples you can receive with a $90 purchase in that offer. That is much higher than the usual $25-$45 buy-in we’ve seen for these bags in the past. If we do not see it before December starts, I wonder if it will come at all. I expect the usual December promotions (discount codes, sale on sale, Merry Minis, etc) and cannot see this sample bag working into them.

What are your thoughts on the Sephora Sample Bags? Let me know below. Sephora does not inform any Beauty Insider of all promotions. It does list a great deal of them on its Beauty Offers page, but I list some it does not on my Sephora Deals Page. Between the ones it lists and the ones I list, you can catch most of them. Subscribe to emails to get targeted offers. If you’re spending over $25 online, there is always a promo code that you can apply. Most major events run on a set schedule, which is why I track them.
