Pssst...Sephora is cheap.

Caesar's Palace has a partnered rewards program where you earn one point for ever dollar spent, and they occasionally offer multipliers.  Their rewards are not so very generous... For example, you can redeem 5,000 (five thousand) points for a $25 gift card from Macy's, Starbuck's, AMC, etc. which amounts to a half of a percent (0.5%) return.  Even so, it's apples to oranges.

 

I think they need to look at other retailers, especially as ULTA revamps and Nordstrom rolls out their respective programs.  Apples to apples.

Re: We love discounts too! But, let's get creative: What other new benefits would you like to see fr

My husband worked for Caesars for many years.  It is actually dollar passed through the machine, not dollar spent.  The machines do not hold 100% of coin that pass through.  For every dollar spent (on average), the strip casinos hold about 9%.  That means on average $0.09 of every dollar is kept.  It seems low, because even though there are a lot of losers, the losses are offset by the winnings.  This also means people are destined to lose over time as the machines pay out less than they take in (of course).

 

Local casinos hold way less than 9%, so you have a better chance of gambling there.  No matter where you gamble, the odds (especially on the machines) are always in favor of the house.  The odds get a little better on the floors.  Blackjack is one of the best bets, but I just say avoid gambling all together and keep ALL of your money.

 

To better explain this thought, when you put a dollar through the machine, it is very rare that you will lose the entire thing without winning anything back.  Even if you are very unlucky, you will get more than 100 points with $100.  You will win some back and reinvest it in the machine giving you more points.  Whereas, when you spend $100 at Sephora, the whole $100 is gone right away.  You will only get 100 points (unless there is a multiplier).

  • How about doing something like Nordstrom for Rouges? Choose your own triple points day? 
  • $25 VIB free shipping minimum, $0 for Rouge
  • Special parties just for Rogue... and VIBs. And in San Francisco/Bay Area. 
  • Link ups to Sephora International. If Sephora chooses to open up in Australia/New Zealand, I better be able to have purchases linked to my current US/Canada account, especially because I don't go to Sydney often and their prices are ****ing expensive. Same for when I go to Hong Kong. (Malaysia and Singapore have Sephoras as well, different programs. I'm not sure what Brazil has, but Brazil has MAC!)

Wow.  Y'all have some great ideas.  As this is an old thread, I wonder if anyone is even reading them anymore or if any changes will be made.  I have not read all of them.  Everyone knows I am not creative, so I am ripping off ideas and expounding upon them.

 

I love the catalog idea. Rather than printing it, I would like to see an online catalog of all perks (we all know there are many that are not advertised even though they work).  That way, we can pull it up at any moment for use.  I know there are many great users who update lists like this for us constantly (which we are all thankful for).  It just seems like it would be a lot easier and probably more efficient if Sephora employees did this.  There could be one list per level too, which you could only access by user login at levels: rouge, vib and bi.  The employees could ensure expired ones are removed ASAP and add them back ASAP when they come back in stock.  That would be much better than the trial and error methods we have now.

 

I would love to see more GWPs for brand specific items that can be combined with one code, a la Ulta.  If the line you are buying has a GWP, you should get it automatically whilst still being able to add one code for a general item.  To expound upon the codes, I would like to see more discount codes throughout the year.  Ulta has $3.50 off almost year round.  Although you cannot use it on prestige cosmetics there either, it can be used toward Ulta items (so maybe we can use it toward Sephora items here).

 

I do not feel there are enough Rouge (even though I buy from MANY places and may likely never get to that level, at least with the current rewards system as I get better incentives to purchase elsewhere) or VIB perks. Yes, we get early access to certain items and sales and a few GWPs not available to beauty insiders.  That just is not enough incentive for me to say pass up a chance to buy items at Ulta where I can get an Urban Decay GWP on the same order as a Benfit GWP and save $3.50 if I throw some Ulta items in the cart.  

 

More valuable GWPs. I NEVER buy Lancome (my favorite brand) here, because they are always valuable GWPs somewhere.  They never have them here.  I bought almost 20 last year from Neiman Marcus, Saks, Macy's Dillard's, Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, direct from Lancome, Bon Ton, Belk, Lord and Taylor (where I got the Holiday blockbuster at the same time as a GWP) and Herberger's.  I have already purchased an additional 7 this year.

I know this still falls under the discount category but I think it would be great if Sephora did what some other retailers do and that's match sales being offered by brands they sell to encourage us to say buy Urban Decay products from them rather than UD when they're offering a sale online.
