If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
Every time I see a sample bag for Sephora in 2019, I add it below. Most sample bags repeat around the same time each year, so looking at the previous year is the best way to track them. Whenever a sample bag corresponds with a specific event, I will also link the corresponding article below. There are times when the sample bag depends on your Beauty Insider Status. I track Beauty Insider, VIB, and Rouge promotions separately, but I will make a note of any that are exclusive to a rewards tier. Unless otherwise specified, all Beauty Insiders get the same offer.
I have one timeline where I list all major: Promotions, Sales, Deals, GWP, Promo Codes, and Events. Those who want to see an overall idea of what to expect this year should stop by. See where these Sephora Sample Bags line up with others on the calendar. You can also visit my Sephora retailer page to see active and upcoming offers of all types.
Sephora offers are available while supplies last, so no expiration dates get listed. Bags are in reverse chronological order, so there is no need to try any near the bottom. Items are online only unless otherwise specified. If I redeem any of these bags, I will write a separate article with a review and link the article next to the offer.
01/23/19 -Use code TRYPLAY for a free Sephora Play Box in Merry Must Haves or Bright Delights (without a subscription commitment) with a $50 purchase. The samples pictured look like the ones I received in my November 2018 Sephora Play box, but they could pull samples from the December 2018 Sephora Play box.
01/12/19 -Use code GOBIG for the Make an ENTRANCE sample bag of foils with a $45 purchase. *Sephora sent an email advertising the GO BIG sample bag again. This originally launched on 11/24/18. It never really went away though. I had been regularly checking, and it was available every time I checked.
01/10/19 -Use code DREAMSKIN for 12 skincare foils with a $35 purchase. Available in-store and online.
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.
