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

@Kim888 @veronika23 Is that your take from reading it also? 
I have several stores near me but you can’t buy everything in store that you can online and I’m not running around like a circus monkey from store to store because store x carries this brand but not this brand. It’s not logical. 

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

@GG84  they can place an order for you in-store for whatever they don't have in stock, though I realize that really just adds extra hurdles (like actually going in) and defeats the purpose of going in the first place but...... 🤷‍♀️ sephora logic

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

@GG84 I think you are right - it's under "experiences" and it says "shopping events" which seems like it's an in person thing 

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

@GG84  @Kim888  yeah I think it is unclear because we usually associate shopping events with something in person... but doesn't mean it couldn't be online as well. So I'm not too sure what to make of it...

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

@GG84@veronika23 That won't be much use to me either since the nearest store is 2 hours away.I pass though Moncton quite a bit in the summer but this time of year not very often,the last time I was in a store was December 27th when I visited family in Fredericton.

Re: Sephora Rewards Bazaar Previews and Discussions

@Seymore3  Oh wow. I really wish they would think more about these things...

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.
