Hi,

I am trying to pay using my gift card on the app. I was able to add the gift card to my app and it shows the balance, and also see my gift card in the passbook. However, when I go to check out, I don't see an option that says apply gift card or anything like that. Except typing in the gift card again - which then defeats the purpose of adding it to the app and passbook.

Please advise.

Re: Beauty Insider Card in Passbook for iPhone

I can't add my Beauty Insider Card to Passbook, either. I have iOS 7.1.2. Nothing has worked.

I've tried everything listed: Sign out/in, delete and re-install, restarting phone, resetting phone and turning on/off Passbook. When I hit "Add to Passbook" in app I see the little loading icon on the upper left spin and then stop. No card comes up. Tried to add the card via the mobile site and I get a message saying "Safari Cannot Download This File." Any help is appreciated!

Hi doppleganger200,

 

I am sorry that you are having trouble adding your Beauty Insider card to your Passbook. Do you have the most updated version of the Sephora app? Make sure you are running the most updated version of the app, If you are already running the most updated version of the app and you are still having trouble, I recommend completely deleting the app from your phone, downloading it again and then trying to add your Beauty Insider card to your passbook again.
