 Hi, I am needing to add my current Beauty Insider Card to my passbook. However, I am not sure of what email I've used with Sephora and I no longer have my hard copy. I usually just tell them my phone number and last name when I go to use it. I registered on Sephora's app with the email I thought it would be but it was not so I do not have my points that are on my existing Beauty Insider Card. What should I do?

I can't get my phone to scan my current BI card, and when I logged in on the app, it gave me a new card with a 0 points balance. How can I get my current balance on my phone and sync'd with my account?

@msjosi - We're so sorry to hear that!  I will definitely pass along your feedback and experience from the Hollywood Sephora to check on their policies.  Thanks for letting us know!

I went into the Hollywood CA Sephora yesterday, and they have a new handheld device system where they could not use my Passbook.

I had my VIB card and a gift card saved to the Passbook, and the associate told me she couldn't scan them with her device. So I couldn't use my gift card, and she seemed confused why I didn't have the physical card.

 

If Sephora is going to implement new systems, they should make sure that all of their fancy innovations are compatible. I really like using my passbook instead of carrying all my various cards in my wallet.

Instead of calling to have my giftcards merged (I have 5, each 50), can I go into the store and use those giftcards to buy a $250 gift card?
