Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs



Our Spring Savings Event is here, and every Beauty Insider member gets a discount! Don’t forget—the higher your Beauty Insider tier, the bigger the savings and the more time you have to shop, so keep reading for all the details.


What is your Spring Savings Event, and when is it?

Our Spring Savings Event is one of two seasonal savings events held each year where you (our Beauty Insider members) get a special discount just for being part of our loyalty program!


Rouge can shop early with their discount starting on Friday, April 9, while VIB can shop starting on Tuesday, April 13, and Insiders can shop starting on Thursday, April 15.


The higher the tier, the bigger the savings and the more time you have to shop:

Rouge members ($1,000 spent per year) get 20% off, VIB members ($350 spent per year) get 15% off, and Insiders (free to join!) get 10% off.


Rouge: We wanted to let you know that starting Friday, April 9, through Monday, April 12, you get first access to shop before everyone else with your 20% off (that means you’re getting our biggest discount of them all!). You can shop with your 20% off as many times as you like—just use code OMGSPRING online. Also, on Friday, April 9, and Saturday, April 10, only, you can bring your VIB or Insider friend in store to share your discount with them!


VIB: You get 15% off Tuesday, April 13, through Monday, April 19. You can shop as many times as you like. Just use code OMGSPRING online. 


Insiders: You get 10% off Thursday, April 15, through Monday, April 19. You can shop as many times as you like. Just use code OMGSPRING online. 


All Beauty Insider members: For the first time ever, you get 30% off all Sephora Collection merchandise starting Friday, April 9, through Monday, April 19! You can shop as many times as you like. No code needed online.


Have more questions? We’ve got answers!


Are there any exclusions to my Spring Savings Event discount?

Promotion is not valid on The Ordinary products, MAC Cosmetics VIVA GLAM products, NUDESTIX Anti-Bacterial Hand Sanitizer Gel products. Clients are limited to the purchase of one dyson item and five Morphe items per SKU per transaction. Not valid on in-store services, previous purchases, purchases of gift cards, gift wrapping, packaging, taxes, or shipping and handling charges. Sephora Collection is also excluded from the Spring Savings discount, but remember, you’ll get an even better discount, so you’re not missing out!


Can I combine the Spring Savings Event discount with other offers or promotions?

Your Spring Savings Event discount cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers or rewards. Although you won’t be able to get an extra discount on top of your 30% off Sephora Collection, you will be able to use your Spring Savings discount on all other eligible merchandise and get your 30% off Sephora Collection offer in the same transaction.


How do I get 30% off Sephora Collection?
Online, after logging in to your Beauty Insider account, add any Sephora Collection merchandise to your basket and the items will automatically be discounted. In store, mention your phone number or email associated with your Beauty Insider account alongside the offer to a Beauty Advisor when you’re checking out—they’ll make sure you’re getting your discount.


Will my Sephora shipment be delayed due to COVID-19?

All of our distribution centers are currently open and processing online orders. However, the safety of our employees and our clients is our priority, and we have implemented and exceeded the safety and hygiene measures recommended by the CDC. Due to these added safeguards, we have fewer people than usual processing orders at once, which has an impact on our delivery times. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding. You can visit your account on or our app to check the status of your order at any time and find your expected delivery date under “Track Orders” then “View Details.” Thank you for your loyalty, and know that our teams are working as quickly and safely as possible to get your order to you. Remember, if you need your order sooner, you can use Buy Online, Pick Up In Store.


When will my order ship? Why does the status remain “In Progress”?

We are processing a higher volume of online orders than normal, resulting in order processing delays. The safety of our distribution center employees and our clients is our top priority, and the workforce safety precautions we have implemented at all our facilities allow for fewer people than usual to process orders at one time. Please allow a few additional days from the posted delivery date to allow for processing and carrier delays. You will receive an email if the delivery date is updated, as well as email confirmation once your order ships. If your order has been split into multiple shipments, you will receive additional shipment confirmation emails as the items continue to ship.


An item that I ordered is now out of stock and my order has not shipped. Will I receive the item?

By placing your order, you’ve successfully reserved the item so that it will be added to your order when it is processed. Items go out of stock online once all inventory for that item is allocated to placed orders. 


The authorization on my method of payment has fallen off and I haven’t been charged yet, but my order also hasn’t shipped. Will my order still be shipped to me?

Yes, your order will still ship to you, and you will be charged when the order ships. Authorizations remain on your account for different time periods, but even if the authorization falls off, your order will still ship.


Why can’t I view the order I just placed in my Recent Orders?

Orders will not be found in your Order History if you did not log in to your Beauty Insider account or if you used Guest Checkout. If you received an order confirmation email, your order has been placed. Once the order ships, you will receive an additional shipping confirmation email.


I placed an order and I am seeing multiple authorizations on my method of payment—does this mean I have been charged multiple times?

You are likely seeing multiple authorizations and not charges. You will only be charged one time once the item ships.


How do I cancel my order?

After you place your order in the US, you have one to two hours to cancel if you have FLASH shipping; you have 12 hours to cancel if you do not have FLASH shipping. If you place your order in Canada with standard shipping, you will have six hours to cancel. If you’re still within the given timeframe, go to your order details and click “Cancel Your Order.” You can access this page by clicking “Order Details” on this link or—if you know your order number—simply add your order number to the end of this URL:[insert your order number].


Will I receive the exact samples I selected at checkout? 

Due to the high volume of orders being placed, our samples are going out of stock faster than usual. Our distribution centers are doing their best to fulfill the requested samples for each order. If the samples you selected go out of stock, you may receive different samples. We appreciate your understanding.


What if I want to speak to Customer Service about my order?

We are currently experiencing higher than expected call volumes. If these FAQs do not answer your question, please hit “Reply” below and leave a comment on this thread with your question. Sephora’s Customer Service team will be monitoring all questions on this thread.

There’s a thread for that! Please visit this post to get advice from unbiased Sephora shoppers who can help you decide what to pick up during the sale: Spring Savings Event 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: What’s in Your Basket?

Speaking of which, what’s my online code again?

Regardless of which tier you are, your Spring Savings Event code is OMGSPRING. No code is needed for the Sephora Collection 30% off discount—just make sure you’re logged in to your Beauty Insider account.


Can I combine my Rouge Reward, my Credit Card Reward, or my Credit Card first purchase discount with the Spring Savings Event or Sephora Collection discount?

You will not be able to combine the Spring Savings Event discount with Rouge Reward, Credit Card Rewards, or Credit Card first purchase discount. However, you will be able to combine your Rouge Reward, Credit Card Rewards, or Credit Card first purchase discount with your Sephora Collection 30% off discount.

I am a Credit Card holder and have a 15% first purchase discount. Can I save that for later and use the Spring Savings Event discount now?

Yes. You can choose to use your Spring Savings Event discount now and save your Credit Card 15% off first purchase discount for later, but don’t forget to use your Credit Card 15% off promotion within 30 days of being approved. And you will still earn 4% back on your Spring Savings Event purchase when you use either your Sephora Credit Card or Sephora Visa Card to make your Sephora purchase!

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

Yes, i placed an order early yesterday morning and it's still processing, they tend to get inundated when they have these sales. But they are pretty good with shipping in a reasonable amount of time. 

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

@silamozilla Our distribution center teams are working hard to ship the orders as soon as possible and we appreciate your patience. 

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

@SephoraBIC  so, the 30% off sephora apparently excludes sale items??? it does not state that anywhere... 😒

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

Hi @treestar86,


The 30% includes sale items too! If you have additional questions or would like me to take a look at your basket, please send me a private message. Thank you!



Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

@DaneeBT  ok, thank you!! yes the items are in basket and still show the same price as when I bought them before the sale...I will send you a message later.

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

If I makes an order with regular items and items from the Sephora collection, how does the discount work? Is it 20% on the regular and 30% on the Sephora collection automatically? I guess what I'm asking if there is a code for the Sephora Collection or is it an automatic discount at checkout.

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

The discount is applied automatically on Sephora collection items.

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

Y'all! A couple products are already sold out LOL.  Kosas Air Brow Clear + Clean Lifting Treatment Eyebrow Gel with Lamination Effect 0.13 oz/ 4 g  and the Sephora SPF kit. WAH.  @TeamBIC do we get a raincheck on apply the discount?  Just thought I'd ask:):)

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

They don't offer rainchecks, @loveyall. You just have to keep checking the items you're interested in and hope they come back in stock during the sale period. 

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

The email notification doesn't work for me! One of the items in my cart was back in stock and I didn't get the notification. I happened to check and saw that it was available, but it sold out before I could purchase it. If there are limited stocks, Sephora should just mention it. It's annoying. @SephoraBIC could you guys mention if a product is in limited stock?

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

Hi @sushiinto,


I'm so sorry to hear about this! I will send you a private message to further assist.




Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

This is why I buy things from the Sephora Favorites before the sale at full price if it's iffy that it will be around when the sale starts.

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

Yes, good idea, plus sephora's products are so affordable

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

Hi! I was hoping to purchase the Dyson Airwrap, but it is already Out of Stock. Any ETA from the vendor on when more is coming? dyson Airwrap™ Styler Limited Edition Gift Set 

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

Hi @cnovak,


I'm sorry we don't have this information available. But I recommend signing up for the email alert on the product page to be notified as soon as it is available again. It is possible it may be restocked during the promotion!



Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

Shoot I wish I could even afford that, it is expensive and you can buy it almost anywhere now these days, everywhere is almost the same price. I just can't see myself spending hundreds of dollars on something that fragile and fall and take a big beating in a salon or even at home. Well I hoped I helped a little by telling you can get this almost anywhere hun.

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

Ive been on a MEGA low buy for all things beauty and skincare (I am swimming in products that I barely touch), that being said, my serum will be finished in approx 2 weeks, and my eye cream sample is almost done, annnnnd there were a few more things I wanted/needed so I'm finally placing an order today! Woopwoop.

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

The sale is live.  I just placed an order.  

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

The time of the year when I’m happy my cat wakes me up at 3am.  Have so much to buy for my niece’s wedding.  

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs

Yes!!! I am so ready for this!!!! 

Re: Spring Savings Event 2021 FAQs
