New ideas for insider points!

Earning points is addictive, saving them for products is even more so! But what about saving them for products we specifically want or for cash coupons to use for products we want. Wouldn't that be even better?

Re: New ideas for insider points!

I like all of the ideas here. For my suggestion, I think there should be a point limit that once you reach it you will get free shipping on any order that you place online domestically, this would especially apply to those who have an abundance of points [you go girls].

Re: New ideas for insider points!

I definitly agree at a certain points number there should be free shipping, I'm from canada and shipping isnt free until120$ which i mean it truly isnt long or hard to spend that much but you dont always want to if you want few things or are on a budgjet. Alwell i only joined or became and beauty insider like not even a month ago and i currently already have close to 300 points, and i have only placed 2 orders so far. I wanted to redeem my 100 points prize but once again there definitly isnt enough of options, i mean when you think about it i had to spend 100 dollars to get a 100 points when points only get me a what 12$? product that is only once in a while is changed and may never be something i want, sephora obviously makes ALOT of money and therefore i do personally think with there income and amount of product it couldnt  be hard to come up with a better point system, there are so many great ideas heree and if some were incourpriated that would be wonderful and would make ordering off this alot easier. I love sephora am so glad to have started ordering it would be great to help this slight problem out and give a little more benefit to orderers. Personally there is NO sephore where i live, meaning not that i would have to drive hours away but that i would have to fly about (500$) to the nearest capital to actually get to a sephora, more benefits are muchly needed. xoxo Smiley Happy

Re: New ideas for insider points!

These are all excellent suggestions ladies! Loving each and every one of them. Keep them coming and I'll be sure to forward them to the appropriate contact. Smiley Wink

Re: New ideas for insider points!

I think that sephora should keep the current gift giving at the100 and 500 levels, but add cumulative gifts as well. For example a person hits 100 points and redeems them for a gift, but when she spends more money she should get extra little gifts, like extra samples or free shipping for all purchases once she hits a cumulative 350 points for example. I know I spend a lot of money here because I think sephora has the best selection and I love the comments. They really help me with my purchases. But I may spend even more with extra little incentives!

Re: New ideas for insider points!

I love Lovely's ideas!  There are definitely items I'd like to try and would do so if I had a reward coupon for a discount. Also love the idea regarding getting rewards for hearts!

Gotta love Sephora---my fave store!!

 

Re: New ideas for insider points!

I think for every review written or Q&A answered on a product page, a small amount of points should be awarded. I always read reviews and the Q&As before buying a specific product-- I think the people who write them should get some compensation. I mean, they are answering questions that sales people are hired to do, at the expense of their own time. Beauty points would be a great way to encourage review writing and provide a little incentive to answer questions on product pages. Smiley Happy

Re: New ideas for insider points!

I'm agreeing with @martka on this one right away!  I know sometimes doing reviews drives me nuts, because it takes a lot of time, especially if I was going to review EVERY item I purchased from Sephora, so if we got a point for each one that was something other that 'I like it', I'd be more inclined to make the effort.

I don't live anywhere near a Sephora - it's 350+ miles to the nearest one, but I did see a pilot in the Colorado store I visited recently where you can trade 1000 points for a special occasion makeover session and a $25 merch gift card.  Brilliant.  If I lived closer, that would be something to shoot for, at least a couple of times.

And I also give a vote for the free shipping for all orders after you've reached a certain cumulative point value for the year.  I know there are a few other sites that do that, including Stila.

Re: New ideas for insider points!

I agree with everyone's suggestions! I've been a vib for years... possibly since the program existed (yikes, that's scary to think about although I suppose that was only like 2007? hmmm now i wonder when the vib program started!) I do like the occasional vib gifts & discounts, & i love the holiday offers. it would be great to have added rewards for shopping & participating online...

 

sephora is definitely my favorite beauty retailer, but i definitely purchase from other places bc the rewards are better. for example, i used to spend a lot on skinstore.com because they did 15%-20% off promotions very frequently, had free shipping (now its w/ $49) and had tons of samples (i don't think they have as many anymore). Their rewards program was good too - i believe 300 points was a $30 shopping credit? for a while i bought ALL of my skincare items there even if i was literally looking at it at a sephora store. 

Re: New ideas for insider points!

I do love everyone's ideas. What I find VERY hard to swallow is a little known fact I just found yesterday. Sephora looks at VIBs and their contributions and gives away FREE new products for their review on the website. What kills me is I cannot find any details regarding the extra freebies. I also posted my disappointment on FB and they did not seem to find this unfair in anyway! Plus there is no way to known if you even "qualify" for these extras.

Hi iheartsephora09!  Sorry to hear you didn’t feel Sephora's gratis selection was fair.  We sometimes send gratis product to a random group of our most active online community members and VIBs before launch to gather feedback about the product. You may be considered for the program in the future if you are a VIB, especially if you are a top contributor for BeautyTalk or our Ratings & Reviews.  Hopefully that helps & Happy Reviewing!

 

xo, Mia
