I'm kinda disappointed.  I am a Beauty Insider (hopefully this purchase would have put me at VIB) and I have been anxiously awaiting my email and still have not received it.  Thats the first bummer.  Then, as I've read through the posts, it sounds like this is an in-store-only thing and there is not store near me, in fact the nearest Sephora is over 400 miles away.  Thats bummer #2.  I did recieve a 20% off coupon from ULTA, and there is an ULTA the next town over.  But they don't carry all the brands I buy, nor give me points and free samples.  I was so excited about my big getting-ready-for-summer purchase, but I guess I will have to wait and save up more money.  Big bummer!!

I have been a VIB ever since the program was announced and I have already met the quota to maintain VIB status until 2013. I was excited to go to the preview event and brought my mother and grandmother with me. BUT, I was pretty disappointed. The music was so loud, I wasn't able to hear the sales associates when I needed help with anything. When I checked out, the cashier was not friendly at all. I spent $200 and bought a lot of things and she crammed everything into one small bag with no tissue paper. To some that may be insignificant but when I pay premium prices, I expect the products to be wrapped nicely and to receive excellent service. They were also out of the umbrellas and did not have any sample bags. The manager did kindly intervene when she could see I was disappointed and offered another free perk. That satisfied me until I got home and saw that 500 points had been deducted from my account. I specifically asked if it was a 500 point perk and she said no. I called the store and spoke with the manager who has assured me that she will get my points credited back to my account. We will see. I am also disappointed that you don't gain points from Sephora inside JC Penney. I shop there often as well and would have a couple thousand points if that were the case.

Is the Chic Week supposed to be in the stores as well?  In reading through the posts, it looks like there was supposed to be a kick-off at the local Sephora stores.  I live very near one, and I was very disappointed to not hear anything about an in-store promo.  Was this at all the stores or just a few?

@ Kungfucutie  All of our free-standing stores participated in the Preview Party.  Did you receive the VIB e-mail?

The Sephora nearest to me is 1hr drive away, and they do not have the sample bags.

 

So very sad. It would be great if you have all the promo items in all Sephora stores. =(

Wasn't happy with the staff at Sephora in Richmond Centre, BC today. Purchased something with my VIB discount and was told the umbrella were all given out. Walked past Sephora again later and saw a woman walking out with one. Then I go in to ask a staff and she said they were gone, and I was like no, I saw someone walking out with one. Then another girl said "there's three left I think," and then the lady brought me an umbrella. I don't think I'll go back to this location again.

Is the umbrella only available in store or can you get it online?

@Ffxgirl1 VIB emails will be sent out today, so keep an eye out!

@Mtiny It will be at all of our free standing stores.  I recommend contacting your store directly for more information on what they will have available for the preview party.

I still did not get my email yet & I have to borrow my friend's coupon to shop at Sephora today.  I need to go back this weekend to get a few more items.  How do I get the coupon?  Thanks.
