All merchandise purchases (excluding gift cards, egift certificates, taxes & shipping) on Sephora.com, in U.S. and Canadian Sephora stores and/or in Sephora inside jcpenney locations during one calendar year (January-December) count towards the $1,000 spend requirement. VIB Rouge is good for the calendar year in which you qualify and the following calendar year. Annual requalification is required.

7.) What benefits do I get as a VIB Rouge client?

• Free Shipping on all orders

• Unlimited access to the Beauty Studio

• Exclusive invitations to Rouge-Only Events

• And much, much more… Learn more at Sephora.com/rouge

 

8.) If I am VIB Rouge, do I still qualify for regular BI and VIB benefits? Yes. In addition to all the additional benefits you receive as a VIB Rouge member, you still receive all the benefits Beauty Insiders and VIBs receive.

 

9.) I have 1000 points, why don’t I qualify for VIB Rouge?

If you have accumulated points over the years and have 1,000 points in your Beauty Bank, you must still spend $1,000 on merchandise at Sephora.com, in a Sephora retail store or in a Sephora inside jcpenney store within a calendar year (January-December) to qualify for VIB Rouge. VIB Rouge is good for the calendar year in which you qualify and the following calendar year. Annual requalification is required.

 

10.) I haven’t received my VIB Rouge Welcome Kit.

Where can I get one? When making a purchase online at sephora.com you will be prompted to add a VIB Rouge Welcome Kit to your basket during the checkout process if you qualify for Rouge status. When making a purchase at a Sephora retail store or Sephora inside jcpenney store, your cashier will give you your VIB Rouge Welcome Kit if you qualify for Rouge status.

 

11.) Will I receive the same VIB Rouge Welcome Kit online as I would in store?

Because you do not need a Beauty Insider membership card to shop online at Sephora.com, the VIB Rouge Welcome Kit you receive online will not include a membership card, but it will include everything else the kit includes. The VIB Rouge Welcome Kit you receive in store will include a membership card.

 

12.) Will returning merchandise affect my VIB Rouge Status? If you have qualified for VIB Rouge, returning merchandise will NOT affect your current year’s VIB Rouge status. However, annual requalification is required.

 

13.) I have already signed up for 2-day Flash shipping, but as a VIB Rouge client I receive Free Standard Shipping. Will I be reimbursed?

As a VIB Rouge member, if you would like to be reimbursed for Flash shipping please call Customer Service at 855-RougeVIB.

 

14.) Are the “Special Surprise Gifts” VIB Rouge clients will receive going to be the same samples we receive today as VIB members?

The same great offers will be offered to our VIB members throughout the year; however, additional offers will be available to VIB Rouge members only.


15.) I see a "VIB Rouge" board in BeautyTalk, but I receive an error message when I try to access it. Why is that?

The VIB Rouge board is exclusively available for VIB Rouge members. When you reach the Rouge level you will be granted access to the board.

I became VIB Rouge a few days ago in a Sephora store. I received a new card, but not the "welcome kit" and free lip stick that it sounds like I would have received had I ordered online.  How can I get a welcome kit since my local store doesn't have them? Will I have to wait until I place an online order?

I'm trying to RSVP for an event at the Eaton Centre in Toronto but the phone number listed (1855rougevib) does not go through. Whenever I dial the number, I get a message saying the number is not listed. Can you help?

Just called Sephora to confirm. The number was actually 4384 not 4834. Thanks anyway!

When I called that number, I was directed to a heating and air conditioning company.

I don't if this is good or bad but after looking at my list of what I'm about to order I'll be a VIB Rouge by the end of october!

Re: VIB Rouge FAQs

guys, two words, Free SHIPPING on any order.  I wont have to wait until I have a 50 dollar order to get something.  I don't know what the other perks are but I spent most of that money before I knew there was a Rouge possibility. So not waiting to get my order shipped because I didn't need 50$ is nice.

Before my last purchase, I was $381 away from vib rouge. I placed an order of $136.50 (before tax) and still $381 away from vib rouge. When are you updating my account? tks!

Re: VIB Rouge FAQs

@ FFrazier Your account should update within a couple days of your order shipping. I see it has now updated :smileyhappy:

Re: VIB Rouge FAQs

tks!

Re: VIB Rouge FAQs

allow 2-5 days from date of purchase for the updating. :smileyhappy:

Re: VIB Rouge FAQs

So can anyone who's a Rouge member confirm whether or not it's worth it? I'm pretty close, and if it's worth it, I'll spend that last amount at Sephora instead of Macy's or Bloomingdale's. But if it's not, I might as well spend it at somewhere more convenient.

Re: VIB Rouge FAQs

if you are close to hitting Rouge, I'd say just spend the money here in Sephora. you'll get free shipping til December of next year.

How long does it take for my VIB Rouge status to update to my account?

Re: VIB Rouge FAQs

Hi Miguel, it can take about 5-7 business days for your account to upgrade to Rouge status. :smileyhappy: -Laura

Re: VIB Rouge FAQs

when will the rouge perks be reworded to reflect how they are in reality? as it was confirmed on the rouge board by an admin that all of the promised perks for rouge will not go to every rouge member and that it will be randomly selected for us which one of the offered perks we receive. the way it's being advertised right now is misleading.
