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.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Yes @kso1225 ulta is definatly missing the high end and designer makeup brands. Ulta seems to be more on the capitalistic marketing plan; supply the masses. They carry what is in demand by the largest part of the population. The average person isn't buying YSL, Dior, Marc Jacobs and she may not even know Bite and Nars exist.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm close to re-rouging but I re-platinumed months ago. I think it's because, for me, Ulta is more of a place where I can play around and try new things that aren't too expensive - drugstore mascaras, bath products, things like that. I also tend to buy things for my daughters there. Sephora is my place for buying the pricier items that I've researched and am pretty sure I'll love.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@JenniferOhJenny I completely agree

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

Everyone is making me feel super guilty!!!! I Rouged a few times over this year.  Still doing better than last year at least. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

This is my statement.

Spend $957 to maintain your VIB Rouge status through 2017

 

I need MAJOR shopping inspo to Rouge '17!  I hope all the SF, Holiday and Hair kits are fabulous! I have close to $500 in Sephora gift cards......so, C'mon!!!

 

After 10x, I am $89 away from making Platinum '17 and already have 3,000 reward points. This is due to Ulta carrying DB this year. I don't really buy much make-up.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I always want to buy from Ulta instead of Sephora, but the Sephora free flash shipping always gets me, and I prefer to only buy one or two small things at a time instead of huge hauls. If Ulta offered a program like the Flash shipping sephora would probably never see my money outside of the brands exclusive to them. 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I've noticed this as well. I've hit rouge again but still have about $250 to spend to re platinum. I love ulta's rewards system but I'm a little lazy to surf their website and only shop during sales. I missed the 10x the points and am kind of kicking myself for not shopping just to shop lol. I reasoned that I didn't need to spend money just to earn money to hoard for ulta, when I really should spend that money on my kids for new school gear. 

However....there's a new one about to open up where I frequently shop and there's no Sephora there so that's alllll about to change lol. I'll probably hit platinum just for that reason alone.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I'm opposite. I already hit Platinum before 10x points and spent over $100 more during the event. I am a little over half way to Rouge, so Ulta has more of my money so far this year.

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

I haven't re-rouged nor are-platinumed. I can say I am close to renewing my platinum status than I am rouging. 

 

Re: Beauty Pet Peeves 2

@StephaniLynn I think this is truly #goals for me. I don't need the stuff I have/get and hardly even use a tenth (maybe even 100x's less than that) what I have!
