The Holiday Bonus for Beauty Insider members starts on Friday as I’ve already mentioned in its article. It also starts again for VIB and Rouge members. That’s right. Sephora decided to surprise us with the opportunity to shop with Beauty Insider members on their weekend. To quickly recap for anyone who has not seen that article, anyone can use the code BIBONUS online or in-store from Friday, November 16th through Monday, November 19th for 15% off. The credit for the purchase will only apply to those with a Beauty Insider account, but anyone without an account can make a purchase. Sephora will likely ask you to create an account to get the discount, but the fine print does not appear as if it will deny the discount to anyone who declines an account. While I always recommend joining for all the benefits the program offers, I understand there are some who prefer not to get tracked.
What was not known until today is that Sephora is giving Rouge and VIB members another chance to save 20% off by opening up the Beauty Insider weekend to all levels of the program. As Rouge members already received two weekends and VIB members received one. This means Rouge members ended up with three weekends to shop, VIB members ended up with two, and Beauty Insider members ended up with one. That definitely feels more like it should. If Sephora repeats this next year, I would like to see Rouge members getting to shop all weekends, VIB members getting to shop weekend two and weekend three, and Beauty Insider members getting to shop weekend three. Had Sephora used that format for this event, I would have gotten the sale price on the Holy Sheet, which is now sold out. With this format, only lucky VIB members got to purchase it with 20% off.
11/14/18 Surprise Announcement for VIB and Rouge members– Use code ENJOY for 20% off online or ask for the discount on a VIB or Rouge account in store. Valid 11/16/18 – 11/19/18. All of the same rules in the original article apply to this code, so refer to that article for a refresher.
Are you going to grab anything this weekend?
What are your thoughts on Sephora’s Surprise Extension on the Holiday Bonus for VIB and Rouge members? 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.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.
