Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I have been getting emails from Sephora that have started to annoy me. The title of the one today was "Did you forget something?" There was also a photo of a finishing powder that I had clicked on earlier while browsing. No, I did not forget anything! I created a loves list for a reason. Don't tell me what to buy! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594 My boyfriend was/is sleeping but I can not stop laughing. I think I woke him up!

 

The "reminders" are not the best tactic. I get them from various merchants and they range from "we miss you" (oh, do you now?) to "did you forget something?" (I sure didn't!)

 

PS: I wouldn't mind these reminders so much if Sephora/Ulta did it for deluxe samples/promos (for example a gentle reminder along the lines of "hey this promo code is still in stock!" would be awesome! Smiley Wink

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I hate these kinds of reminder emails. I like to add things to my cart to see if a promo is still working, and I forget to clear it after I'm done.

 

I also despise the review emails. A place I ordered from decided they wanted me to review all 5 samples I ordered, but instead of sending one email about the 5 products, they sent me FIVE SEPARATE EMAILS, days apart about each individual product. SO ANNOYING!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594,  

Amen to that!  I don't like getting these type of reminder emails from any site telling me what I just looked at or what is still sitting in my bag.  

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I got one of those today too. Grrrr

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I admit I opened it thinking there might be a discount because many companies do it! Damn it.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Agreed. Those emails just strengthen my resolve to not purchase, waiting until there is a sale somewhere. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

But, but....did you forget something? lol 

 

I have been getting these emails too lately and it is annoying. I hate when other companies do this too! Spammy...

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

LOL!!

@jesscheems It is spammy, and I am so irritated by it that I have considered unsubscribing from the emails... but I do not want to miss out on the Rouge stuff. Ugghhh. Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I just got an email that says "Um, excuse me? Should this be yours?"

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I received the same one today, vegchililover. That was a new one! Smiley Wink

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

That is terrible. This kind of aggressive marketing makes me crotchety!

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

My biggest Sephora email pet peeve is the "Because you need it" subject line.

If I need it, I'll buy it. Probably somewhere else. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@etscore1 I am getting that subject line too. My moolahs are currently looking for a new retail space. 😆

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@angel7594 10% ebates at Neimans is the front runner for me at the moment.

 

When I actually do the math on the difference between 4% and 10% is when I truly realize how cheap I am. lol.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@etscore1 It's all about change in a coin jar...doesn't mean much in the moment but four months down the line it means you get to buy something else with that savings Smiley Wink

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Nice! Thanks for that info. I am so cheap sometimes that even a 1 or 2% savings has me rubber neckin'! Smiley Very Happy

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This is all me...annoying myself...I am the biggest advocate with speaking with your wallet to companies. I really value & love Ulta's reward program 1000x's over Sephora's. Yet I've already re-rouged for 2017 and haven't re-Platinum'ed!!! What gives?!?

 

Oh, and the worst part is, I've intended NOT to re-rouge since the program started... Smiley Sad

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I am in the exact same situation and I re-rouged months ago. I'm only close to re-platinuming thanks to the point multiplier on Monday, but I had the same thought when I checked my status.

 

The main reason is that Ulta doesn't carry my favorite brands (Bite, NARS, etc). Their mid-range is very limited when you compare it to Sephora.
