The time has come for the Sephora VIB sale!! 20% off anything and everything if you are a VIB member.
Sephora has three levels of reward memberships and you can find the breakdown of each here. I became a VIB member just last year (you have to spend $350 in a yr) so I participated in this years VIB sale. The VIB Rogue members got to shop the sale the weekend prior, but everything I had on my wish list was in stock.
In order to save the most money I did not purchase anything from Sephora throughout the year because it would not have been on sale. And therefore I spent all $350 (threshold to become and remain a VIB member) in this one weekend. I placed all my orders online and I used a discount giftcard that I had purchased ahead of time for additional savings.
I broke up my purchases into 5 different transactions, so I would receive free shipping but also 3 free samples for each shipment (15 samples). And also I used my points I earned from the previous transaction to add on deluxe size samples to my next transaction.
I would have paid over $430 for all the products on my wish list but I received 20% off and spent $350 to reach the threshold for next year’s VIB status. In addition I saved 9% with my discount giftcard, so I saved 27% or roughly $117.
This may sound like a lot but this is my time of the year to stock up for the entire next year on makeup/skincare/haircare products. I do not shop at Sephora at any other point during the year.
I did a similar deal here at Ulta. Again it may seem like a lot but I stock up this time of year and don’t buy unless there is a sale.
