500 point perks perks

How do you feel about the 500 point perks offered at sephora? I check from here and there to see what the perks are and never really find its anything I am interested in. There have been a couple within the last few years that I liked including a kit by Benefit that included a full size Coralista blush whick I still use, among other items I still purchase and currently use Smiley Happy I just wish they would have better offers more than once a year or every 2 years lol so I could actually use my MUCH (for lack of better words at this time of night lol) earned points that are just building up more and more in my beauty bank. I also think it would be more encouraging to spend even more $ if I knew the perks were a better pay off.....What are your thoughts? I mean to get 500 points you do afterall have to SPEND $500....Sooo a good "gift" in return would be a nice thank you! Smiley Happy

the birthday present and the points perk stuff makes me disappointed year by year

probably due to cost cutting

The Laura Mercier 500 point perk that is offered now is one of the better ones, but since I already own the products in the perk, it isn't fascinating me. In general, I don't think the 500 point perk is worth it. I think Sephora should offer a better perk, considering we spent $500 to get those points. Ulta has better perks and they change them more often, they have new ones every quarter and the perk is worth approximately 10% of what the spending level is at the mid-high level. Plus they have good coupons worth money off your purchase each time they offer an ad, Sephora rarely gives out a money back perk, it's only for free shipping, (which I'm already getting with a big order), or the VIB gift card, but that's also rare. I know I definitely would spend more if I got a money off coupon or there was better perks offered!

 

I think a gift card for our birthdays would be awesome!  That way, we could pick out something that we really liked. The birthday presents for the past couple of years have been kind of skimpy and I gave away the shower gel because I don't like food smelling beauty products.

Do you get points/products for posting on this site opinions and reviews?

@angelclarice-  Unfortunately, no. It's a great idea, but the general thought in the past is that people would abuse the system and post lame posts just to get the points. The moderators would have a huge job weeding out the extra posts, so the idea got passed on, but I don't think anything will come of it.

 

Though I'm definitely with you on this one!Smiley HappySmiley Happy

Thanks for replying. New to this site and am trying to figure out the ins and outs of it.

I certainly understand why they wouldn't give points for just posting anything to the site.  However, why couldn't they give points for reviewing a product you just bought at Sephora?  I would think they could easily set it up so you log in through your purchase history to do the review.  Of course, since they just set up the new site, I'm not holding my breath.  I just think this would be a way to control the 'posting for points' issue you mentioned.  I guess you could argue people would buy smaller items (cheaper items) to do more reviews, but that seems unlikely.  Money is still money and people are probably going to be unwilling to spend it just to get points, I think.  Plus, they could always exclude sale or clearance items from the point rewards system.  I myself just bought a great Tokidoki set on a whim (to get up to $50 free shipping actually) and it was one of my favorite things I got in that shipment.  I bought it and would offer a review if I wanted to regardless of points.

 

As for the original question, no, I am not thrilled with the 500 pt perks.  It is so funny that I wrote to Sephora asking for more Too Faced 500 pt perks and then they put out the set they have now with the 2 eyeshadows, blush, and lip glosses.  It only disappointed me even more.  I wanted something as great as the Eye Love palette from last year that had 6-8 eyeshadows in it.  I do *not* want those silly lip gloss samples.  And 500 pts just to get 2 shadows and a blush is not worth it to me.  So I'm still waiting.  I actually came on to check out the Ole Henriksen set as I got an email about it.  My mom loves the eye gel.  But I think I'm going to pass.  For one thing, if I order just $17 more, I'll be at VIB status and I don't want to trigger that just yet (got a lot of stuff for myself and family during the 15% off sale Smiley Very Happy ).  So, I'm just hoping they'll have good stuff later on.  As long as they don't lose my points, I can wait.

I completely agree-none of the 500 point perks have interested me that much in a while, so I have so many points right now...even the 100 point perks didn't seem very good the last time I placed an order (I was hoping if they were good I could get a couple of them).  The latest Laura Mercier perk was the best of the past couple ones, but I'm happy with my skin care regimen and didn't want to start changing things, and I already own a couple of the products.  They should do a perk for the Buxom brand, another Tarte one, or maybe Charlotte Ronson!

@maltipoo66, I know what you mean! There hasn't been any really good 500pt perks in a while... Though a while ago I got a Buxom 500pt perk that came with a full size of my favorite lip gloss! But, I wish Sephora would do another Tarte one... I kinda like tarte Smiley Happy... And a Charlotte Ronson perk wouldn't be bad, either Smiley Wink
