A thread for updates on the Rewards Bazaar, including previews of upcoming rewards and discussion regarding the upcoming rewards and questions.

 

New rewards are posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays - usually right around 9 am PST / 12 pm EST

 

There is a separate thread for feedback on reward redemption and experiences which you can find here:

And an interim thread for discussions on perks after the old one was removed during The Great BT Migration of 2017:

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: Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

I agree. It’s horrible. Especially compared to what other reward programs are offering!

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

I'm so honored to be picked as a Beta tester. This is just the kind of "emotional" reward I'm looking for (LOL.)

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

I'm glad you are happy. That's what Sephora was looking for. But if you compare the $10 value with what you could get for 2500 points ($100), this is not any kind of actual reward "win." It seems like just a way to dupe people out of their points so they don't have outstanding rewards to potentially be responsible for. Sad state of the reward system.

This is SO ridiculous when for 2500 points you can get a...

This is SO ridiculous when for 2500 points you can get a $100 gift card. The math simply doesn't add up and Sephora thinks if they dress this up we will be excited about something new?! Also, why take away unlimited makeovers from Rouge members? Are those putting you out of business? Hardly! I recently read an article that Sephora wants to offer rewards that are more "emotional" than "transactional" because that's what the consumer wants. They obviously are not reading any of these boards if they think we want LESS rewards!!!!

@awwkellnaw I actually laughed when I received the email. The math definitely does not add up lol. Sephora, you have some serious competition out there. Is this really the best you can do?

Re: This is SO ridiculous when for 2500 points you can get a...

My take from that article was a little different. Sephora considers the "emotional reward" folks as their customer base...they bring money to the table with fierce loyalty and a desire for that black and white bag as a status symbol; they don't deal hunt or shop around because why bother? They've got the funds to buy it now, and don't really care about what's in the Bazaar, especially the small stuff.

 

Sephora doesn't care nearly as much about us "transactional" folks that want a substantive rewards program.  

 

I posted the full article here if anyone else is curious to check it out

I must be missing something. Where's the "prestige" again? All being a Rouge seems to signify these days is I spend way too much money!

Re: This is SO ridiculous when for 2500 points you can get a...

Well, I guess the 'emotion' they are going for is anger then!

Re: This is SO ridiculous when for 2500 points you can get a...

@CheerMomma Agreed. Not sure how they are measuring this "success" they think they are getting. Clearly they are not listening to their top tiered loyalty program members whatsoever. 

RE: Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

I got the email but I’m not able to sign in it’s too glitchy. I feel that I’m begging for $10 off I’m not trying this is a joke

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

The new so-called ‘reward’ is pathetic.  No point in Rouge status.  And particularly annoying that a significant reduction to rewards is gussied up as ‘something new’ and presumably desirable. Off to Ulta and other options.  Ciao, Sephora.

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

I got one of these! Signing up has been incredibly glitchy. 
I'm excited to see them testing something new. 

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

Then you'll be delighted by next week's special Rouge reward: only 1000 points for a $5 GC!

Why are you excited to use 500 of your points to only get...

Why are you excited to use 500 of your points to only get $10 off when 2500 points gets you $100? That is crazy!

Re: Why are you excited to use 500 of your points to only get...

....I said I was excited they were doing something different.

Re: Why are you excited to use 500 of your points to only get...

The problem isn’t with customers who appreciate this, it’s with the company providing an unsatisfying rewards program. No need to turn on each other. 

Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

has anyone seen a quality perk lately? I'm talking the 50 or 100 gift card perks. they used to be available a lot and now I haven't seen them in weeks. I just got an email for 500 points for $10 off when it used to be 1000 points for a $100 reward card. what the heck happened?! that is pathetic in comparison for those 2 offers

RE: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

I managed to snag one of the $100 rewards 3 weeks ago. They often go so quickly that you don’t see them pop up in the rewards bazaar

Check now, the $100 was up.

Check now, the $100 was up.

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

They no longer offer the 25$ or the 50$ options. I think the 100$ is still around though

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

<dramatic intro music> dun dun dun...

It's coming. Points for cash off...

at an abysmally low rate, but who expected anything different? 😛

I'm Rouge and haven't seen an email yet...am guessing maybe they posted the FAQ in advance of sending them out, so maybe tomorrow? Shrug, I'm not excited by it anyways
