Sephora announced a surprise discount for all rewards tier levels in the Beauty Insider Appreciation Event. It is tweaking the Beauty Insider Program to add new benefits. This event is said to launch those benefits (the reason why it could be a one-time thing). Sephora normally only has two official sales a year. One is the Spring Discount, where VIB and Rouge clients get 15% off and Beauty Insiders get 10% off. The other is the Fall Discount, where VIB and Rouge clients get 20% off and Beauty Insiders get 10% off.
This is the first time in the history of sales where we see a summer event. It is also the first time Rouge clients get a greater discount than VIB clients. For all those (myself included) who do not see much difference between the VIB Benefits and Rouge Benefits, Sephora has finally heard us. My guess is the other sales will remain the same for all levels, so there is no reduction in benefits for any level, but only time will tell.
This Beauty Insider Appreciation Event 2018 is only for members of Sephora’s Beauty Insider program. Make sure you sign up if you have not already to take part in this event and other offers only given to Beauty Insiders, VIB, and Rouge members.
VIB Rouge- 20% off Code YESROUGE from Friday, August 24th through Monday, September 3rd. That is a total of 11 days.
VIB- 15% off Code YESVIB from Thursday, August 30th through Monday, September 3rd. That is a total of 5 shopping days.
Beauty Insider Members- 10% off code YESINISDER from Thursday, August 30th through Monday, September 3rd. That is a total of 5 shopping days.
It is important to note that past sales with general codes have allowed unlimited online shopping. While members can shop in store during the event as much as they want, they can only shop online once.
There are some exclusions, which Sephora outlined here, “The offer cannot be applied to previous purchases, gift cards, Flash shipping or PLAY! by Sephora subscriptions, or combined with any other promotional offers. Not valid on purchases of Dyson, customizable sets online or through Sephora’s Customer Service. Clients are limited to three Drunk Elephant-branded items per transaction and three Tatcha-branded items per transaction. Merchandise quantities may be limited, see store for details.” I hope the Dyson exclusion is not a new exclusion to all sales, because I was already planning on purchasing a Dyson during a sale at some point.
What are your thoughts on the first ever Sephora Beauty Insider Appreciation Discount Event? 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.
