Dior 500 Point Perk

So, what do you think of this perk from yesterday's email?  It's a Dior inspired charm bracelet and a mini Addict to Life perfume.  When I saw the subject line on the email, I got excited and was hoping it would deal with their eyeshadow or lipstick.  Since my nearby JCP Sephora doesn't carry their makeup, I figured this would be a good way to try it.  But, the email didn't make my dreams come true lol.  Besides, most clasp bracelets are too big on my wrists.  I'll keep my eye out for another 500 point perk.

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

I dont think Sephora is listening to us at all. This looks like the worst 500pt perk yet. A cheap bracelet that was probably made for a dollar or less and a MINI fragrance? Are y'all SERIOUS? $500 for that? Shameful. Tsk Tsk.

 

If it was up to me I would have made a Dior kit that contained a full size neutral eye shadow quad ( so that everyone could wear it), a 1 oz size of their Addict fragrance, and at least 5 deluxe samples of their lipsticks, lipglosses, lipbalm and nailcream. 

 

The way I was introduced to Dior ( and its now my favorite luxury brand, I love their Addict lipsticks, lipglosses and fragrances and own their lipbalm and nail creme as well) was I received a deluxe sample of their addict lipstick for a 100pt perk. The last few years the 100pt perks have been pretty useless as well.

 

It being this close to the holidays I was expecting the perks to improve, not get worse.

 

Beauty.com ALWAYS give you this bag with 16-20 deluxe samples with a $100 purchase and all we get is one little deluxe sample.

And you get this bag with all these deluxe samples. They ALWAYS give you a bag.

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

Have to agree, the Dior perk was pretty much a letdown and the bracelet is kind of a joke.

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

This is my first post here (hope I am doing it in the right place...). Maybe I'm just weird, but I ran to Sephora yesterday pretty much as soon as I received the 500pt perk email. I checked out the bracelet + loved it. It feels heavy + definitely doesn't seem cheap at all (we'll see if it turns my wrist green...). I really like it!

 

It's really difficult to pry the cap off the mini perfume. That's my only complaint!

 

 

Just my two cents....

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

gobelles95-- Thanks for joining in!!

 

I have plenty of heavy bracelets that are 5 bucks or less and dont turn me green. Sephora is not a jewerly store and I dont associate a bracelet with Dior and I dont see how that will get Dior more customers. I'm glad you love it but do you think its worth saving $500 for?

 

If I was introduced to Dior with a bracelet I wouldnt own any of their items right now. I know that much.

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

I'm conflicted about this Dior 500 Point Perk too.  I'm tempted to believe if Dior wants to maintain their high-end brand image, they would make a good quality bracelet.  However, I have seen other 500 pt perks recently and was not really impressed...for example, there was a mini Bumble & Bumble set at my Sephora store which just looked like 3 deluxe samples - it didn't feel worth my hard earned 500 points.

 

I keep saving my hard earned points and hoping that a better perk comes up, but they seem to be getting worse and worse Smiley Sad

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

The Bumble and Bumble set is absolutely not worth it. I have this beauty boutique in my area that has a basket at the exit door thats filled with deluxe samples or giant packet samples of luxe products. You can grab whatever you want, how ever much you want, and without having to make a purchase. They get this stuff for free anyway so they dont care. From that basket I have gotten many giant samples of bumble and bumble, bliss, caudalie, jurlique etc.

 

And I've said this in another thread but most Origins places are not stingy at all. I went in for a $20 cleanser and was given a handful of deluxe samples of everything from scrubs to eye creams to moisturizers that have lasted me months.

 

And ULTA always gives me a at least one deluxe sample with purchase everytime I go, no matter how much I have spend. 

 

So yeah...Beauty.com, ULTA, Origins and my boutique are 4 places that do a better job with free gifts/samples then Sephora.

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

I use the salon at my local Ulta for haircuts and coloring, so I  get perks like a full size bottle of cologne or a free haircut every quarter.  They don't have as much variety as Sephora, but I think they have the customer appreciation thing down pat.

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

I also was disappointed! I never wear those giveaway jewelry things, and a mini sample of fragrance is definitely not worth 500 points! I would love to try the Dior lipsticks and a sample of their makeup remover and nail cream would be great. 

 

@sephoramusthave- I would love to try out one of those Beauty.com bags, maybe I'll rustle up a small order to try them out! Thanks!

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

prettyinpa---You have to spend $100 to get the bag with deluxe samples. But $100 at Sephora just gives you one little deluxe sample. Beauty.com always has this available, and they change the bags/samples in it very frequently.

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

Beauty,com gives its customers cash back every quarter as well.  Maybe that would be a better way for Sephora to go instead of the perks.  It isn't just this one that was a disappointment to me, it was the last several.

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

Yes they give 5% cash back on every purchase and they have sister sites too ( drugstore.com and visiondirect) and it doesnt matter which of the three websites you purchase from you get your cash back. 

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

@sephoramusthave  Beauty.com sounds very interesting.  Can't go wrong with free stuff!  I'll have to check that out.  Thanks for sharing!

 

 

I hope the 500pt perks do improve.  I've been waiting for one to call out to me, but nothing so far.  I've only cashed in on a couple of 100 pt perks.  A mini Anastasia lipgloss and a mini Clinique gloss.  Still have plenty of the Clinique gloss, and that's what led to more interest in the brand.  I hope to find a 500 point perk that will do the same.

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

Does anyone know whether the rumor of Sephora making 1000 pt perks is true?

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

I can't say 100% that it's true, but about a month ago I had a Sephora employee tell me in the store that they are doing it. She didn't say when.

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

I was almost tempted to get it, but as I saw it looks like a cheapie bracelet. Honestly, Ulta gives you a ton choices when you reach a certain level - heck, we've passed their highest level 6 and I could get a free fragrance or hair tool plus full size products, and yet all I get offered are more samples even after all the price increases by brands and taxes? I already get enough samples with Birchbox.

 

I want to thank you to the poster above for letting me know about beauty.com. I have a perfume I want to buy so this would be quite easy purchase choice.

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

Yeah, i'm definitely not too impressed with this perk. I will keep saving. Not worth it to me.

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

I didn't know if I would get this or not.

 

Dior IS a reliable brand, but I'm not sure how good this would be. 

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

I saw it and thought it would be nice for someone else.  Myself, I am indifferent.  It is better than some of the other recent 500 point ones but nothing that says I must have or ooh that looks interesting to try. 

Re: Dior 500 Point Perk

I am very disappointed. I would never wear a bracelet like that. I am very finicky with my jewelery. I wish they would make what they made a while ago, it had like two eye shadows from all the sets from TooFaced? Two from Neutral Eye, Two from the others. That is a pretty cool perk. I would have loved that! The last perk I really enjoyed was the Benefit one with the Dandelion podwer and stuff. I think they should always offer a makeup 500 point perk and something else. This way the makeup junkies are happy (like me) and the skincare junkies are happy (me sometimes LOL). For 500$ we do deserve a choice. I don't like Ulta much, I only go in there for a few staples Sephora doesn't have, but their reward system is WAAAY superior. And that's a shame.
