Does anyone else think this 1,000 point "reward" is a joke?

After waiting for ages for them to come out with a 1,000 point reward, the best they could come up with is a one-time 20% discount card???

 

Wow.

I wish I had read the responses here, prior to make a huge purchase to bring my points up to get a 2000 point bonus. I was on the site first thing on the 10th.  No 2000 point bonus showed up for me. Thinking that there had been an error, I called.  I spent an hour on hold to speak to someone, unable to "hold" any longer I hung up. Once I did get through I was told they went quickly. Let's see.  How many people have that bonus level? How many bonus products do we need on hand?   I am shamed and embarrassed for falling for the hype and have been completely taken advantage of.  I have been a beauty insider since inception and have not collected a bonus, ever.  

Not okay, Sephora.  Shame. Shame.  Shame on you.

I guess the onlly thing I think of is the fact that 1000 points generally represents a thousand dollars spent there, at that one store. Customer loyalty, big profits for the company...Anything is nice, but something more than a one-time use 20% discount would be nicer. There are a lot of companies that give shopping passes, dollars-off of purchases, BOGO, etc.  as rewards for spending one's hard-earned money at their establishment.  These days, companies should be grateful that there are so many people still shelling out money for high-end cosmetics and skin-care.

Or at least treat you with some respect at the store.

Sephora itself is becoming a joke. I am not buying much of anything here anymore and the rewards compared to other companies now is lacking. Sephora used to be a great value and experience for me. Now the satisfaction since Rouge launch has left me bitter.

i have a question i keep hearing a lot of ulta giving out better deals , but ulta is very limited with the brands that they carry as opposed to sephora . so would you rather go to ulta and switch to other brands? ps this not suppose to sound snippy at all im just curious lol 

Re: Does anyone else think this 1,000 point "reward" is a joke?

For me, it doesn't really change what I buy. My first stop is ulta, if they don't carry it, then I go to Nordstroms, and if they don't carry it, I go to Sephora. If sephora doesnt carry it, I get sad and drink wine. 

Re: Does anyone else think this 1,000 point "reward" is a joke?

It's not the best option but it's not the worst. It looks like they're trying to make an effort but from what I hear about Ulta (i'm Canadian) they may have to check out the competition a little better and listen to the people a little more. Also I can't find this reward so is it just for US or does Canada have this as well?

I'm canadian as well and shop at Ulta every now and then, I'm register for the reward program there but I think you have to be in the US to profite of that because they send the promo by mail but just to american. I never got anything from that reward program

What?! I was hoarding my points and JUST used them last week! Double u, tee, eff. GRR.

Re: Does anyone else think this 1,000 point "reward" is a joke?

Errrr .. Ulta gives those out for free a few times a year and for 1,000 points there you get $50 off a purchase to use with it if you want.  Do they even monitor the competition?

Re: Does anyone else think this 1,000 point "reward" is a joke?

Unpopular opinion here, but yay! I'd rather have 20% off then a bunch of crappy deluxe samples.

I think they should make it 500 points instead, but hey, as said, better then the deluxe samples!

Re: Does anyone else think this 1,000 point "reward" is a joke?

I agree. The point amount is off, but they actually listened. A lot of people did ask for this.

Re: Does anyone else think this 1,000 point "reward" is a joke?

You know, I actually agree. I wouldn't mind an option to cash in 1000 points for, say, a 25% off coupon. I mean, I could easily save $200 in one purchase if I bought all my skin care items at once!

50% OFF?! There's no way they would (or should) bring that back, people would abuse the crap out of that. I know I would Smiley Tongue

Re: Does anyone else think this 1,000 point "reward" is a joke?

I'm in Texas and I've never heard anything about the 50% off...when was that available? 

Re: Does anyone else think this 1,000 point "reward" is a joke?

For a while they had the 50% off of your purchase for using 1000 points and that was such an incentive to me.  I bought literally everything from Sephora because when I needed to make a big purchase of skin care creams, saving a few hundreds dollars was totally worth it.  Now?  I have all these points and I won't use them for a measly 20% off.  And I won't shop at Sephora now except for a very few items.  I've totally lose my incentive for shopping there.  I'm back at Ross picking up whatever I can find on clearance.  Boooo hiss Sephora!  Bring back the 50% discount and keep it!

I am such disappointed this reward. I though that was the same as a 20% discount coupon until I found out that 1000 points were deducted

That is so not worth it. For a 250/500 pointer MAYBE I would consider it, but for 1000, its a joke. And its a pity for sephora, because if it were for less, i bet many of us would get it and spend $ at sephora for things we x really need

Re: Does anyone else think this 1,000 point "reward" is a joke?

I can't believe the 1000 pts isn't offered in where I live! Such a SHAME Sephora! I am a LOYAL VIB since 2009.  I cannot believe my state is so limited to what Sephora has to offer me.  Yes, 1000 for 20% isn't worth it!  I really think that Sephora needs to do better with their Rewards Program besides exchanging points for perks.  We should be able to exchange points for products as well if we have over 1000 points in stock!

I to am quite disapointed, I guess it doesn't matter since I'm a Canuck and they're only doing this in certain state. I've been a BI since 2011 (when I was 15 and first getting into makeup) I finally became a VIB in January and recieved the 10%, not that it made much difference because where I live tax is 13%. Idk if anyone else has realized but really they're just giving you another 10% off for spending another $500 since you get 10% off for hitting VIB status so it equals 10% off for every $500 you spend. It's a shame b/c they have phenonimal customer service, employes, and overall stores compared to Ulta (which has cool stuff to but the ones I've been to are always terribly stocked).
