Has Anyone Tried Returning Then Exchanging Anything That They Don't Carry Anymore With A Receipt?
My friend said she received a gift during not long ago that she has no use for and was told that she can only exchange it with something else...but the problem is that...she already got everything that she wanted not long ago...as well as...she found something that costs about the same price that's been sitting around for some time and as well as with a receipt, and so, she wants return it and then make the exchange for it, since, she didn't get a chance to put it to use just yet, as she tends to stick with using up one thing of the same type before moving on to the next, but the thing is that, they don't carry it anymore...so...has anyone tried returning then exchanging anything that they don't carry anymore with a receipt?

Hi prettiegirl, I'm not sure I understand your question. You can return a product without a receipt for store credit or an exchange only. If you have a receipt, you ca... see post
Ontrac problems
Has anyone else had problems with Ontrac? Over the last six months I have had about ten packages go missing between Sephora and Amazon, all of which were supposedly delivered by this company. I would love to just use USPS but I'm a VIB Rouge and am eligible for free shipping, which only goes through Ontrac. I shouldn't have to pay an extra $7 just because Ontrac cannot do their job. This problem has me seriously considering not shopping at Sephora anymore.

BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER !!!!!!
Sephora cancelled my order almost 10 times since last week when I tried to shop online. After cancelled my order, they sent email said that to protect my payments etc… I called to verify my payment and nothing wrong with it. They said I violated their Term of uses by ordering too many of 1 product. I think Sephora should stated the amount of product that a customer can buy for 1 product. When I see a good deal, of course I want to purchase it to stock up and give it as a gift for my friends. What's so wrong with it. And I think 5 is not "too" many. And I also tried to order another products that I have never ordered before but still, they cancelled my order. I sent another email to ask but well, no reply!!! MOREOVER, when I called, their representative said that I have to go to the store to buy stuff, now they can't say anything yet and someone will called me back to resolve the problem but no one did. I don't have that many time to call and wait in line to talk with your representative and received an answer like that. After that, I sent an email and they did not answer my simple question that "WHEN can I order online again?" because they keep canceling my order which made me really mad. OH that's so funny, I spent a lot of money to just shop at SEPHORA and now what? I have to go to the store to buy stuffs whenever I need???? NO WAY. I would rather shop on the other sites. However, I got over 3000 points in my acc. Just let me shop and redeem all my points. I was so patience until now, when my problem hasn't been solved but I received an email said that "They checked my record and see that I called and the problem was solved, pls call customer service … " Oh no, I'm not gonna call again, I don't have that much time. SEPHORA, please solve the problem.

Supposed to be VIB Rouge
I was not credited the points from my in-store purchase from yesterday. I am finally *supposed* to be a VIB Rouge member, and was expecting to have the associate acknowledge that and give me a new card with the other benefits, just as they had done when I became a VIB member. However, the store was especially busy and the associate took me beside the counter and used a handheld device to ring my purchase. She seemed very rushed and a little flustered; the machine was giving her some problems. She scanned my VIB card and I knew that my purchase was more than what I needed to become a Rouge member, but she said nothing. She mentioned my previous amount of points so I assumed that my card was credited and I didn't want to question her because I knew she was feeling busy - I worked retail for years, I can empathize! Now I wish I had pressed the issue.   I called customer service today, got my points added but had to fill out a form to be sent to someone else to "approve" my Rouge status, which may take up to TWO WEEKS! And she said that they will ask me to send in my receipt! Who has time for that? Keep in mind that I have had to spend over $1,000 to become a Rouge member and I chose to buy 2 pricey Fereo products at Sephora because I wanted the additional points. I could have purchased them elsewhere.   I'm so disappointed that I have to wait just to have someone address my problem, and then have to send in proof when it could have been handled correctly at the time of purchase. This is a warning to future customers that don't want to inconvenience anyone else! You're the one that's inconvenienced in the end.

Horrible Store Experience
I had a horrible experience at the Chestnut Hill, MA location recently. Infact, I left the store in tears and went and cried in my car. I called to book an appointment for a complimentary makeover, because I renewed my VIB status for 2015. I arrived on time for my appointment. When I entered the store an employee asked me if I needed help, I told her I was here for my free makeover and she immediately became defensive. She said that they don’t take walk in appointments. I told her that she misunderstood me, and that I did have an appointment. She rolled her eyes and called for the manager. The manager was polite and told me that nobody scheduled my makeover, but she implied that she thought I was lying about making an appointment and pointed that the girl who was working on the day I booked was currently working and SHE SAID she received no calls for an appointment today. I was sat in a chair with another employee. The first thing she said is “you know, you really need to make an appointment”. I made an appointment. It’s frustrating because I know all the employees were talking about me and clearly telling one another I was lying about the appointment that I made.   I told the associate helping me that I wanted a natural full face of make-up and also wanted to be matched to a foundation. I told her I have dry skin and the first two foundations recommended to me I had tried and disliked. She told me she had no idea what to pick. Your employee has no idea? I explained to her that I previously had cystic acne (so I have some pigmentation on my skin from scarring) and that typically my skin was dry. She kept telling me that we can’t really do anything unless the skin underneath the foundation is clear, and that you have to treat the underlying cause. I did treat the problem (acne) now all I have is dry, flakey skin and your telling me that no foundation is going to work on it? She made me feel so hideous and felt like I’d never be beautiful, even with make-up. She kept messing around and just staring at me, asking me what I’d like to do, seeing as she couldn’t think of a good foundation. I said I heard Nars might be good. She applied it on my skin. It looked okay, she put two different powders on each cheek, both made the foundation cake up in my T zone. At this point, she wasted 35 minutes telling me that my quest for perfect foundation was useless because I have an incurable problem. She then told me I had only 10 minutes left, and didn’t offer to fix the foundation. She quickly applied some neutral shadows, eyeliner and a swipe of blush. I still had the nasty cakey foundation on with two different powders. She didn’t even bother to put mascara, fill in my eye brows or a swipe of a lip product. I looked like a clown. I mentioned the mascara, and she said oh I thought you had some on. I had no mascara on and my eyelashes were caked in white eye shadow from her application. I felt so ugly and she rushed me away. I left the store, and burst into tears when I saw myself in my car. As a VIB insider I do spend a lot of money, and I was willing to purchase foundation and other products going into the makeover. But according to your employees, I am a liar and I have horribly incurable dry skin that foundation won’t fix. I am deeply disappointed with my service and think it is inexcusable that three of your employees didn’t treat me with respect. This makeover is supposed to be a treat because I spend so much money, what is the point of offering it if your employees think it’s a chore?   ON TOP of this I wrote an e-mail to your customer service department and received a response that my complaint was received and it would be forwarded to the correct contact within Sephora and I would receive a response in 5-7 business days. On Monday (the 8th business day) I wrote a reply email and have yet to receive a response. Tomorrow marks 13 business days from my original email. Will I ever get a response? I am not asking for the world here. I do not want free store credit or anything else. I just want another make-over, properly done and the employees to understand that it is not okay to lie and make the customer feel this horrible. The employee that did the makeover needs a serious lesson in customer service and clearly should not be doing make-up and the whole store needs to not talk behind the customers back. How can you treat someone who spends so much money in your store that way?

HOW DOES SEPHORA GENERALLY MANAGE ITEMS WHICH ARE DISCONTINUED AND NO LONGER ON THE SITE
Approximately  a week ago I purchased an item to try out . I am pretty new to Sephora so I was not aware that the price was such a good deal . After trying the product and doing as little research I decided to go back and get a few more of the skin care sets .  They are limited edition sets and were ringing up at 18$ . When returning to the store they were ringing at $35 , so I decided to wait and check online . The item is no longer available online at all. It does not even show up . I can see it when I click on my online list of purchases but the link is dead . It seems to be discontinued , and I have called allover the various Sephora stores nearby to try and see if it is also ringing up at the higher price but no one has this item .  My question is >>  what is the usual procedure for Sephora when an item is discontinued  , and was previously listed as  being on a clearance type price then suddenly drops off the face of the earth but pops back to the original price . ??

Clarisonic warranty for Canadians
So I bought my Clarisonic Mia 2 in April 2014 and now its broken. The on/off button doesnt seem to be working properly...when I press it it doesnt turn on and sometimes it would turn on automatically when its laying around undisturbed...also it keeps vibrating when I charge it. I bought mines at Sephora and did register it on the Clarisonic website. I called the Canadian Clarisonic toll free number to open a claim and was told to try charging it continuously for 24 hrs to see if it would fix the problem...it didnt.    I'll be calling them again tomorrow but I'm just wondering if any Canadians have had any success in getting a replacement for their Clarisonic of if I will be getting the runaround.
