Active Promo Codes #19

I guess this goes here, via Instagram and trend mood. 2020 birthday gift

yay! 😍

yay! 😍

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

@Ashletta216 , thanks for sharing!  I always look forward to seeing which brands would be featured in the birthday gifts each year!  @SoldeJaneiro is an unexpected choice; while personally, I enjoy the original Bum Bum Cream, the feedback on the brand in general is polarized because of the heavy scent in their products.  I'm also curious to see what size the birthday minis will be -- the 0.84 fl.oz. / 25 ml size that has been offered as a 100 point reward or the 2.5 fl.oz / 75 ml size currently offered for purchase.  Finally, I do hope this is not going to be offered in lieu of the skincare gift option.    

Re: Active Promo Codes #19

I can pretty much guarantee it'll be the smaller jars! 

Active Promo Codes #19

these promos suck lol either they are sold out or have expired Smiley Sad I have 75$ in my cart and need a good promo! not interested in the foundations because none are my shade

RE: Active Promo Codes #19

Buyer beware! Sephora’s marketing team makes their new credit card look like a new or upgraded points based loyalty program, not a credit card. I cancelled the card immediately with the credit card company — then Sephora’s marketing team froze my Sephora Rouge status and cancelled my Sephora Play subscription. Not only is that bad marketing, false advertising and fraud — it risks yet another dangerous Sephora customer data breach. Sephora is overlapping credit card data with Beauty Insider data and vengeful if you cancel the credit card. Class action lawsuit waiting to happen.

Re: RE: Active Promo Codes #19

I don't know what you though it was, for me it was clearly advertised as a credit card. I didn't eve waste time reading the benefits or t&c's/etc, since I do not want a CC.

It seems like the format is similar to those of Bloomingdales and Nordstrom (linked to their rewards/points system), so there's nothing out of the ordinary there.

RE: Re: RE: Active Promo Codes #19

When the card was first introduced through the mobile app and email to Sephora Rouge members it was basically a quick flashy pop-up window touting extra perks snd 15 percent off your next purchase. Terms weren’t properly disclosed nor APR. One easy click to “ sign up”. So no, not advertised or promoted as a credit card especially goven small screen mobile devices.

Re: RE: Re: RE: Active Promo Codes #19

You’re not the only one. If I remember correctly I could only access the cc offer via app at the time which was clumsy to navigate. I’d been enjoying my Ulta cc and I rushed to sign up Sephora’s without properly researching like I normally do. I totally misread Sephora’s cc offer.  It was all so vague.  I canceled immediately after signing but they still sent me the card. I didn’t even totally understand what they were talking until months later when another BIC member clarified the terms and I am a very well educated person.  It’s horrifying what happened to your insider account. It’s clear everyone is afraid of getting on Sephora’s “vengeful” side for these very reasons of what can happen. So sad. 😞  I wish you all the luck given the track record of resolving challenging issues. I know what it’s like to feel like just a number and waiting what feels like forever or never for this nightmare to end.

Re: RE: Re: RE: Active Promo Codes #19

@SassinSanDiego  Do you have a mobile phone screenshot of the Sephora credit card ad you saw? Improper/incomplete offer disclosure is something I know a lot about, so I always notice it in random ads. I don’t recall thinking Sephora’s cc ad in their own site was problematic, but I saw it via a larger viewport (tablet). Now I’m genuinely curious to see how it looked via small viewport. 


Sephora’s email to me about their cc was very clearly advertising a cc, not just a rewards system. I’ll check to see if I still have the email, but I think it even displays an image of the card. Was your email different? 


I do think it’s sucky of Sephora to cancel your Play sub simply because you cancelled the card. The only logical reason I can think of is you might’ve linked your sub payments to the card as the primary payment source—but I assume you’d have to manually do that; if Sephora automatically switched it when you opened your cc account, that’s not cool unless the t&c say that would happen. I also assume you had your Play sub before you applied for the cc... is that correct? 


I don’t have Sephora’s cc. I do have Nordstrom’s (I’ve been a cardholder for a few years) and it’s linked to their reward program. If I ever cancel my Nordy cc, I won’t expect to also lose my Insiders/Nordy Club account since the card isn’t a membership requirement. But retailer cards linked to rewards programs aren’t unusual.  

Re: RE: Re: RE: Active Promo Codes #19

But you had to enter your SSN in order to sign up. I don't know of any other reward card/program out there that requires your SSN in order to be a part of their rewards system.

Re: RE: Active Promo Codes #19

Hey, I can understand your confusion, but it is advertised as a credit card.  I know it has been confusing since before it was just the loyalty program, but Nordstrom does have a similar system.  It is always good to check what you are signing up for (even if it is a loyalty program because they might share your information) before you give them your information.  

RE: Re: RE: Active Promo Codes #19

I gave them ZERO information. I just clicked yes. Well over 30 days since cancelling the card with Synchrony Bank for fraud and it still is linked to my Sephora Rouge account requiring me to use it on purchases. That’s crooked.

Re: RE: Active Promo Codes #19

An FYI for you young'uns Smiley Wink  (OK, I am not as old as all that but have learned some things).  Credit card offers can cost you  HUGE amounts of $ in ways you are not even remotely thinking of.  for example, I accepted a Macy's credit card off while shopping for nursury stuff for my daughter (note shopping while pregnant also dangerous).  I thought I would really do well with the 15% off since I was buying furniture, bedding, etc.  A few years later that credit card cost me 50k.  Yes, $50,000 because it knocked down my credit rating (that one extra card) and cost points on my mortgage.  I learned (through a lecture in school) as a kid that women have a difficult time establishing credit (less so now, but still...) and have been vigilant about my credit rating.  *That* move really messed me up.

Knock yourself out buying stuff you don't actually need to get that free lipstick, but do not put yourself in a position where you get turned down for a mortgage for the same reason.

There are web sites which will tell you your credit rating and what you need to do to improve it.  sometimes you DO need to get a credit card, but check before you jump.  Messing up your credit rating is serious business. (And I wish the people hawking the cards were required to tell you stuff like this.)

Re: RE: Active Promo Codes #19

Yup @DoctorLisa, totally agree. 

Re: RE: Active Promo Codes #19

It's shady of them to overlap BI with their credit card system but I didn't ready their ad as a points based system, just as a credit card. Were you under the impression it was NOT a credit card?

Re: RE: Active Promo Codes #19

Yes, I'm curious to know what you thought that it was. It was advertised as a credit card. You might earn some points with it but it is still a credit card.

Another round of targeted offers went out.  Feel free to try your luck.  Didn't work for me. 3V8UJUPNV


Re: Active Promo Codes #19

Isn't the 20% Rouge sale (15% for VIB) next week anyway? I don't get it Sephora lol.

RE: Re: Active Promo Codes #19

Yeah — I’m Rouge since program inception years ago and they didn’t even bother to send me notice of next week’s Rouge discount. Sephora sucks. I’m draining all my saved up points and getting out.
