General information:

Spoiler
  • The Rewards Bazaar is supposed to have new point perks released on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9 am and 5pm PST
  • There is no set time for the perks to be released - we have to wait and see when they become available between 9 and 5
  • However, so far the rewards have been released almost exactly around 9 am PST
    There seem to be only a few perks added at a time (each day)
  • Some perks will be listed as "coming soon" and may arrive on a later date
  • The newly added perks will range from 100 points to 50,000 points
    Sephora's T&C state that the larger perks (750 points +) are only available online
  • The smaller 100-500 point perks are available in store, while supplies last There are limited quantities of the perks available
  • We aren't sure why the rewards seem to appear on different devices/browsers at different times There may not be any "big" point perks added.
  • Some days we may only see smaller 100, 250, or 500 point perks added.
  • Updated Terms & Conditions (as of August 16, 2016):

  • Previews are above - note that these are just sneak peeks, as we do not have complete details as to which perks will be available, when, or what's included.
  • Additional perks usually pop up as a surprise!

 

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

@GG84  yeah I prefer shopping online too.  I get they want more store sales but some people might not have access to a store or can't make it in for some reason... so don't really think it's fair if that's the way they'll go.

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

Seriously... $100 was 2500... and now Sephora wants to have 500pts be $10? ... Ok. 

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

@tiri  my understanding is that the 100$ reward will still be available in the bazaar... the 10$ off is a new addition and will be available at any time... but still... why would I waste 500 pts on 10$ when I can get 100$ for 2500 pts.  Like really? 🙄🙄🙄

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

Yea, haha, that was my gripe. Why spend 500pts when there is a better money value for 2500pts. Yes, we get annoyed about the $100 gc's not being very available... having $10 off all the time for so many points is not even worth it... 

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

I still can't believe they went through with it after the beta testing

maybe its that the $100 rewards are only available to rouge and the cash for pts is available for every tier? i was telling my coworker who is only a VIB and she was interested. but i said if you compare it to Ulta (even w/o the rouge reward value) 2000pts for $125?

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

@tiri  exactly. I think they might have just added that in the hopes people would stop complaining about the loyalty program...

RE: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

Honestly I WONT be rouge next year. Sephora’s Reese’s system SUCKS and I was only buying all my products here to mai again my rouge status for the free makeovers. Now that they are no longer complimentary, I have no loyalty to shop at Sephora, when many stores sell the same products for cheaper/more frequent stores. PLUS if I’m going to pay $50 in products for a makeover. I mind as well go to MAC or go to NARS or whatever counter in Macys, Bloomingdale’s, etc where they will give you a BUNCH of free products with purchase. Sephora you seriously dropped the ball.

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

I used the Beauty Insider Cash today. Overall, the process was very simple. During checkout, there was an option to add the reward to my order. I was also able to add a promo to my order. I'm not sure if people were wondering about that. There was a note that the points used are non-refundable, so this might work like the Rouge $100 Rewards where you are not able to return any items you bought with the reward.

 

I still think the point conversion leaves much to be desired, but I prefer a reward system that provides cash back over one that just gives minis for products that don't interest me. I would love to hear from others who also took the bait.

RE: Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

It has been next to impossible to get the $100 lately. I don’t understand why they don’t just make more available. We’re all just sitting on points. I bought one about a year ago and spent it on fragrance. I’d do it again since the 100 pt and 250 pt rewards are so pathetic and the 500 - 750 pt rewards are generally not worth it, clutter, or sold out. I hardly ever shop Sephora anymore for this reason. I can get better deals and better GWPs elsewhere!

RE: Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

I prefer cash points also. I shop at Ulta for all crossover brands they carry.

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

Managed to snag a $100 reward today, almost 2 but I ended up cancelling the second last minute. In my experience, they show up 5 min after the hour. 

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

Good to know! It would be nice to snag a reward but I keep forgetting. 

RE: Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

I was able to place 2 orders for the $100, had my points taken out of my account & only one reward sent. Customer service said they’d be allowed to “give me” my points back but wouldn’t fulfill the order. This is one of the many reasons I’m do t with Sephora if I can ever get rid of my points.

Re: RE: Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

@fleurdeleigh that’s weird. Did you mean to buy 2? I got charged twice (in points) by accident and only got delivered 1 code. Customer Service over the phone returned the points for the other one. 

Re: RE: Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

Shop at Ulta!  I have almost $800 in rewards cash to spend there.  I will never look at sephoras rewards system again.  Never making rouge again either because it's plain foolish waste of my money.  It's BS.  

Re: RE: Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

Ulta doesn’t have the same products and their markup on drugstore products is higher than going to a Target or Walmart. I shop at both but they are different retailers. 

RE: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

Another Tuesday when rewards are supposed to come out, and no larger rewards are available. I feel as if the rewards program is officially dead. Maybe it’s different in the US but us Canadians are most definitely getting the shaft.

I know...I've been waiting to try and finish up my points...

I know...I've been waiting to try and finish up my points but they aren't even sending those preview emails anymore for us in Canada. I was wondering if they're going to axe the program.

Re: RE: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

No, US and Canada alike...it's one big shaft party. Smiley Sad
