Everyone was wondering if Sephora Sale would repeat in August 2019. The first ever Beauty Insider Sale in August took place in 2018. That event was to launch the new Beauty Insider Benefits though. Sephora just announced that the August Beauty Insider Sale, also known as the 2019 Summer Bonus, will repeat this year with one major exclusion. It only includes VIB and Rouge members this year. This likely means it has been officially added to the lineup of events we can expect from Sephora. It also brings the sales we can count on from two to three, which makes it easier to shop more often. One is the Spring Discount, where Rouge members get 20% off, VIB members 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 15% off.
The Sephora 2019 Summer Bonus dates have been announced.
The 2019 Sephora Spring Bonus Sale is here. Beauty Insider members get 10% off, VIB members get 15% off, and Rouge members get 20% off. Scroll down for the dates and important details for the Sephora 2019 Spring VIB sale. It is open to every tier even though most people call it the VIB sale. Once again, Sephora is calling the discount event the 2019 Sephora Spring Bonus. This is the first time since 2013 that Sephora Spring Sale separated all discounts based on Beauty Insider reward level. Since the launch of the Rouge program, the Sephora Spring discount event always offered VIB and Rouge members the same 15% off discount. Rouge members get 20% off for the first time in the 2019 Sephora Spring Sale.
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.
Sephora changes the name of the Spring discount event almost every year. It has gone by the Beauty Insider Sale, the VIB Sale, Chic Week, A Love Note Sale, the Spring Bonus, Spring’s Hottest Ticket, and more. This year, it is once again going by the Spring Bonus. One thing remains constant. The event always takes place at the beginning of the Spring, usually April. It only started at the tail end of March once in 2014. Only members of Sephora’s Beauty Insider program can take part in this event (and a lot of other offers) so make sure you sign up if you have not already. Beauty Insider members get 10% off (since 2015). VIB and Rouge members always get 15% off. There is fluctuation in the number of shopping days from year to year (scroll down for more information on that). On weekend one, Rouge members shop alone. Weekend two opens to VIB members and Beauty Insider members. Rouge members get four extra 4 days to shop.
