To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!

I don't think I've ever spent my points since I became a Beauty Insider. I have more points that I'd like to admit, but I can't bring myself to spend them because of the "what if something better comes out" idea...

 

Anyhow, do you guys save or spend your points? Anything you're saving up for or anything you've spent your points on that you'd like to share?

 

Thanks for your thoughts! Smiley Very Happy

 

 

 

Sidenote: This is my first question so forgive me if I posted in the wrong section/this question was already asked! 

Re: To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!

I am a point saver too! I have been known to save my points for 6 months to a year without redeeming them for anything. I wait until there is a perk that I know I will really love and use before I even think of redeeming my points. Smiley Happy I always like to have at least 500 points in my Beauty Bank at all times in case something comes out that I know I can't live without. Smiley Wink

I love that idea!!! I have so many samples of everything, thats exactly what I'm going to do with them! 

Re: To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!

I always seem to miss that 5 minute window in August where the fabulous 1000, 5000 and 10,000 point perks are offered, so I'm going to start spending my points.  Still, I try not to go crazy for every item offered particularly since we have so many opportunities to get freebies with orders.  The holiday season 500 point perks are usually pretty awesome and what I hold our for.  The manager at my Sephora has a trip to Vegas for a Sephora convention and I guess the upcoming 500 point and 1000 point promos will be revealed (along with a bunch of other fabulousness).  Sephora? Vegas? Drool. 

Re: To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!

Oooooo exciting!! I haven't spent mine yet because I'm still waiting for new perks (I already have a lot of Marc Jacobs lip glosses so I don't want to spend 1000 points on that) Can't wait to see what the new ones are!! 

Re: To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!

I'm a saver, though not necessarily by choice.  I usually skip over the point perks that I've seen as a GWP elsewhere, that show up frequently in value sets, or that I can easily get as a made-in-store sample.  I'm not sure that I have the patience to save for the multi-thousand point perks, but something like the 1000 Marc Jacobs perk is definitely worth holding out for!  Smiley Happy

Re: To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!

I used to spend my points like crazy back when I first started with Sephora but now I hoard them while waiting for a point reward that is actually worth it or use it on something I am curious about.  Recently I did cave and get the 1000 Marc Jacobs perk but before that one, I've been kinda underwhelmed by the other point perks.  I did get the Alterna perk that was recently offered because I've been curious about the whole "caviar" treatment for your hair.  I've yet to use it though.  But I remember a long long time ago they offered a Too Face eyeshdaow palette for 500 points, I forget what all came with it but I remember getting that.  It wasn't a full size palette but the eyeshadows were so pigmented I only needed a tiny bit each use.

 

I've spent quite a bit during the 4x promo so my goal is to hold off until they offer those bigger point rewards next year.  That's a long time but at this rate I think I can do it. Smiley Happy  Maybe I can get my hands on one of those designer bags or something.

Re: To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!

That's exactly what I'm going to do.  I have 3341 points so I have to save and stalk when it's around the time that those come out.  And STAY AWAY the rest of the year so that that point total doesn't quadruple. Smiley Wink

Re: To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!

Me too! I was never really interested in the sample for 100 pts because I either already had them or could ask for a free sample in store. That eyeshadow sounds awesome though, I'm an eyeshadow hoarder so anything related would so be what I spend my points on! 

Re: To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!

I was a sometimes-spender (100 here or there, 500 on the Nars kit), but after seeing the big-point perks earlier this month, I am definitely saving from now on in hopes that they do something similar next year.

Re: To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!

Did you happen to catch what they were? I'm mad I missed them! I only caught the Marc Jacobs one, which is still in stock. 

Re: To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!

I have close to 10000 pts.  Im planning to keep saving until they have something cool that I can redeem for. 

Re: To save or not to save? ...Your points that is!

Last year I saw a NYC trip/makeover for 5000 points. I now have this as my goal in the event something like that would be offered again.
