Every time I see Sephora point multipliers in 2019, I add it to this article. Most point multipliers repeat around the same time each year, so looking at the previous year is the best way to track them. Whenever a multiplier corresponds with a specific event, I will also link the corresponding article below. There are times when your multiplier 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.
With UltaMate Rewards, Ulta Beauty already has the most rewarding loyalty program in the beauty community, but learning more about how to earn and redeem points can take your savings to the next level. By only spending points when they are worth the most and stacking as many bonus points and multipliers as possible, your return on investment could easily multiply from what you’ve received in the past. The most important step to maximizing your savings potential and making the most out of the program is to learn when to redeem. Once you’ve done that, learning how to maximize earnings will get you to redemption faster.
I track all Sephora offers. This article covers all Sephora Point Multipliers for 2017. Sephora usually uses point multipliers as a benefit for certain promotions, so most multipliers accompany minor events. When I write a separate article for an event, I will link the article next to the offer. Events known to repeat each year are 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. As I see point multipliers, I will post them below. You must be a Beauty Insider to take advantage of point multipliers (or to receive any points at all). There are times when your multiplier depends on your Beauty Insider Status. Unless otherwise specified, all Beauty Insiders get the same offer.
Point multipliers are usually automatic whether purchased online or in-store, so you do not need to do anything to activate the offer other than present your Beauty Insider information. It can take up to 24 hours for point multipliers to apply (more common when purchased in a SiJCP), but most points credit immediately after the purchase. My Sephora Deals Page keeps a list of all current offers, so make sure you stack these multipliers with current promo codes and offers.

Beauty Insider Appreciation Week, which is usually at the beginning of August, starts September 10th this year. It runs through September 17th. The event comes with a point multiplier and an 8 piece GWP bag for VIB and Rouge members. Rewards Bazaar officially launched 08/18/16, and I am guessing Sephora wanted to work out the kinks before the point event. Today is actually the second official day of Rewards Bazaar, because new point perks are only released during business hours on Tuesday and Thursday. Though the official launch did not see any major offerings, Sephora promises they are coming. Perks from 100 points to 50,000 points will get released. I expect the 50,000 point perks will be extremely rare and incredibly valuable. In typical Sephora fashion, we will not see the official email on this event until shortly before the event. For official details, “stay tuned.”
How do I offer tips for getting the best deal at Sephora when it only hosts two real sales a year? Sephora is DisneyWorld for makeup lovers. As someone who probably loves Disney more than makeup, I do not say that lightly. Although I love a lot of beauty and makeup stores, I experience pure joy when visiting Sephora. My son calls it my store. He’s not wrong, because I love shopping there. Deal stacking at Sephora is not always possible, but there are times when it is. There are always new things to learn, so I will edit this if I discover something new. I’ve seen guides to getting the best deal at Sephora before, but they’re not usually comprehensive and miss many important tips. Details scare some people. If you’re scared of detail, click that little X and back out now. Do not say I did not warn you!
How do I condense the article on tips for getting the best deal when shopping at Ulta when it has all the best offers? I won’t. Ulta encourages deal stacking, so there are a lot of things to cover. Some deals are a little harder to find, because it rewards our digging efforts with a larger bounty. I’m half-joking. Most people will place orders without putting too much effort into finding a deal, and Ulta knows this. For those willing to do the research and put in the time, Ulta gives us the deals we need to place an order. If you’ve mastered the art of deal (like Tony Schwartz), I’d love if you can think of anything else. There are always new things to learn, so I will edit this if I discover something new. I’ve seen guides to getting the best deal at Ulta before, but they’re not usually comprehensive and miss many important tips. Details scare some people.
