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 track all Sephora offers, and this article covers all Sephora Sample Bags for 2018. Whenever Sephora releases a sample bag as a GWP, I will list it below. If I redeem any of these bags, I will write a separate article with a review and link the article next to the offer. Bags known to repeat each year get notated, and I will also note if the offer is a change from the previous year. This article tracks offers to note changes over time. These bags are available for all rewards members in the Beauty Insider program unless otherwise specified. Items are online only unless otherwise specified. Bags are in reverse chronological order.
I still miss my Dad every single day, and while I doubt I will ever get over the abandonment I feel from my ex, I am ready to resume blogging. Of course, I may need some time to really get back into the swing of things, so please bear with me if it takes a while. My goal is to resume regular blogging by January.
See 2018 VIB Promotions.
It’s that time of year when the promotions at Sephora start rolling in back-to-back. This Sample Filled Clutch promotion is this year’s take on the MIXITUP promotion from last year. The Sephora Eight Perfect Days Advent Promotion just wrapped yesterday. That is still so fresh that there are plenty of items still available under that promo. Employee Appreciation starts in less than a week. The Customer appreciation bags (with 7-8 deluxe samples) come out at the beginning of November. VIB Rouge shoppers get first access to the VIB sale, starting November 4th. Then, the VIB shoppers get access to the VIB sale, starting November 11th. All of these promotions are within a month, but even more promotions arrive if you add another month to the timeframe. We will see Black Friday deals and a Mystery Bag of samples for Cyber Weekend. Gift cards for all Beauty insiders roll in early December, and it will all wrap up beautifully with the Sale on Sale. I love the last 2.5 months of shopping with Sephora. It is my favorite time for deals!
I tried not to re-qualify for Sephora VIB Rouge until the end of the year, but I got really close. After getting there on July 12th last year, I’d say November 26th is a huge improvement. Fingers crossed for December 31st next year. During the VIB Rouge sale, I purposely stopped short of qualifying thinking I would make one last purchase when we get our $25 off $50 gift cards. The Black Friday deals were a lot better to me this year than last, so I was not able to pass them up. There were two that instantly caught my eye, which I mentioned in my Black Friday Deals article.
