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

Hi Mizzy,

It *is* a point per dollar.  It doesn't take a year to reach VIB status, rather it is a dollar amount spent $350 a calendar year.  It's easy to keep track of your points.  Just look at your BI information at the top of this webpage.

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

You do become a VIB as soon as you spend the $350?  I don't think you're clear on how the VIB program/BI program works, talk to a mod if you need help - all of your concerns are pretty easily addressed.  Which is great, solutions for problems = a good thing!

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

How about SVIB or SSVIB (super sephora's VIB)?
- I.e. more levels or increments in the program.

1. you get extra free points or double points after spending 500, 1000, 2000. Earning faster when you spend more.

2. Different tissue paper colours instead of the standard red when you shop in-store. A bright pink for vib, or rainbow colour for upper levels.

3. A free ribbon, pin, candles, charm, or collectibles for each increments everytime you shop.

4. Complimentary Makeovers on your birthday.

5. Bachelorett or girls'night out party at sephora with mini how to-s, new product sampling.

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

I love the idea of extra points & makeover for birthdays, but it would be near impossible to have different color tissue paper behind the counter. There's barely any room behind the cash wrap as it is for everything.

 

How about special point perks for VIB's only?? Perhaps bigger sized perks Smiley Happy

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

I would love to see free products for VIBs. Such as for every $500 spent at sephora, we get a free product up to $25. and being able to use more than one code online would be amazing.

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

I hope I'm doing this correctly!

 

For VIB's, I wish we were able to get to the sales before regular users could.

Also, I wish there was a way, if there was a product we loved, and it got on sale, that we would be emailed or notified about it.

There was a product I had been waiting for for a long time. I would check the product page often. I didn't check for a few days and I noticed it had gone on sale, and was out of stock!!

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

A VIB Birthday Gift. Like a 500 pt perk.

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

I just became VIB for the first time after last christmas.  So far I am not sure I see anything different from normal beauty insider.  Same 100 pt and 500 pt gifts.

 

I did get the full makeover without purchase..but frankly its not hard to spend $50.

 

I used the 10% card...thats it.

 

What else is there?

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

What about days for new items, where you can try them or have your shades and consistencies matched by a well-versed makeup specialist or artsist from that line (no offense to the beauty experts), or have samples that match your beauty profile sent to you?

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

Make sure that we get the emails like we are supposed to for starters!

- money off for trading in points-

- 1000 pt perk that is a FULL SIZED ITEM OR KIT

- Way for VIBs to make an event like extended hours for VIB's only where you have to reserve a spot for those who work late(or early)

- Automatically send prelaunch samples to VIB's ( like 1 or 2 per year)

Have a sample program where you can pick 5-7 deluxe samples every month for a flat fee ( That would be awesome) like10-15.00

 

 

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

Love love love the idea 1000 point perk or money off(like Ulta) 

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

More product samples & less fragrance samples please Smiley Happy

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

These are mostly suggestions for the VIB program
Gifts with Purchase(on occasion)!
More discount events that don't require a code.
Perhaps the addition of a second code per purchase.
Ship-to-store option.
That's all off of the top of my head, I know most of it includes getting swag, but, who doesn't like swag?! Smiley Tongue

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

More VIB exclusive points rewards and deluxe product samples would be amazing! Smiley Happy

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

Ya I agree.

The differences between the VIB and Beauty Insider program are almost negligeable. But VIBs are VIBs because instead of shopping at Ulta, Amazon, drugstores, etcetera, they decide to shop at Sephora. So some brand loyalty incentives for spending hundreds of dollars a year at the same store would be lovely. Please don't take us for granted! Anyone can be a Beauty Insider, but not everyone spends min, $1 per day at Sephora (god, it sounds terrible when I put it like that...)

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

I would like to see a "Platinum VIB" program for those of us who spend over $1000/yr at Sephora, which would include perks like special discounts, always free shipping (say over $25) and even better sample perks--maybe even being able to get more than one perk at a time on internet orders.

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

The ability to put multiple codes in at checkout. For example, combine the discount code with a free VIB deluxe sample promo code.

More events without such a high cost to attend. Actually have all stores participate in the larger events like Bumble & Bumble. Larger point perks, and better 500 point perks. Free shipping. Offer the "online" deluxe samples for VIBs in local stores and not just online. (This is the main reason I look at colors in stores and then go home to buy online)

Companies like Nordstrom have now implemented a points system with 100 and 500 point rewards (and always have free shipping on any order). So if the same product is offered at multiple stores, we need a reason to purchase it at Sephora.

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

- a VIB birthday gift

- option to use 2 promo codes per online order

- Option to turn points into a giftcard. 1,000 points = $100 giftcard. 

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

I agree! I think this is perfectly resonable, since when I shop at other places I can spend half that amount for $100 in free product!

Highlighted

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

I think the points program is almost negligible as a "bonus". Other places have way better programs. For example I get actual in store credit. For example, If I spend $50 I'll get a $10 giftcard. Or if I build up points I can redeem them for product, it approximately equals $100 free product for $500 spent. 

 

That basically equals 20% back. You cannot tell me Sephora's 100 point perks are worth $20, or the $500 point perk are worth $100. Now with my local drug stores selling highend brands (some Sephora has), I tend to go there to take advantage of their programs.

 

Even at department stores, the bonus gifts from the beauty counters are way better that what I get at Sephora. For spending $50 (min. was $35) on Lancome I get a gift the a makeup bag, lipstick (full size) , mini eyeshadow quad, anti-aging cream and visionaire corrector. The exact same size of the vissionaire corrector was available as a 100 point perk at Sephora. 

 

While I do like Sephora, the beauty insider program is definitely NOT a motivator to shop there.

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

The VIB birthday gift used to be sooo much better. A couple years ago I recieved a 20% off card AND a full sized Philosophy Purity. 

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

- VIB in-store pick-up

- VIB different birthday gift

- Free shipping for VIBs, no minimum purchase

- Multiple promo codes

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

I also think a VIB Birthday Gift would nice as well as other perks that BI insiders don't get, not just the same discount but on a different day. I also think getting noticiations about what point perks are coming what be a great idea as well. Many of us wait to place our order so we can get certain 100 or 500 point perks. I also love the idea of better perks being given, higher value perks. Remember the exclusive Kat Von D 500 perk palette or the Too Faced palette. I also love the idea of two promo code slots for VIBS. Spending $350.00 a year is no small feet. We could shop anywhere. Allow us to use coupons like Ulta. Create a better reward system. Like others have suggested, make a punch card, etc. 

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

Online discounts & better promo codes for Canadians!

How about a printed tutorial card...say maybe every other month? I know you can find makeup how to's and tips in the tv section or youtube but how many of you can actually apply your makeup while watching your computer? (I tried and I kept on stopping, playing, pausing then rewinding back to a few seconds earlier...I looked really silly). Having printed how to cards is a nice BT freebie...(maybe a bronze smokey eye or cat eye with red lips,  bronzer application, nail arts or hairstyle! ).
