If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
A lot of new sale items dropped on 12/12/18, including the Beauty Vault: 12 Days of Makeup, which I did a Grab or Pass on. Expect to see new items hit the sale section every Wednesday and Friday throughout December!
Every year, Sephora hosts an event where we get 20% extra off Sale items. To access the Sale on Sale, we shop from the normal Sale Section and use a promo code for the extra 20% off. That code will work through during the event as many times as the customer wishes to shop. The event usually starts around Christmas Day, and it always ends on New Year’s Day. Rouge members may get advance access to the event (we’ve received 1-3 days on this event at times in the past). As soon as the event is formally announced, I will update this with the dates and all pertinent information. For now, I am just reminding you that the event is coming as the sale section is getting ready to restock.
We all know that some sale items linger until the last one finally get purchased, and that can take years for some things. This is an event for Sephora to start the year fresh and get rid of as many of those things as possible. There is a point every season where the sale section gets replenished. That typically happens shortly before the seasons changeover. Winter officially starts on the 21st, so the new items should drop soon.
I saw a few new items yesterday (after getting an email that something I was looking at had a price drop). A lot of new items dropped on 12/12/18 as well. Sephora sent an affiliate email on the 14th stating new sale items will drop every Wednesday and Friday. There is no end date for that, but I assume that ends when December does. It also seems the email is a week late since we saw drops on Friday the 7th (prompting this article) and Wednesday the 12th. Those who see something they really want before the event starts should grab it, because it may sell out before the Sale on Sale commences. If there is an item you are unsure of at the sale price but would purchase if it dipped another 20%, wait for this event to start. Resist the urge to purchase it sooner.
Sephora does not inform a single Beauty Insider of all deals. Certain offers are targeted and others have different purchase minimums based on the code. Remember to check New Offers and/or Recycled Offers before placing an online order. If you’re spending at least $25, you can add a promo code to any order. See all Grab or Pass and Sephora articles.
