Sephora just made some major changes to their Beauty Insider Program!
Several years ago, they introduced VIB, or Very Important Beauty Insider. To qualify to be a VIB, one has to spend $350 in a calendar year. When you hit VIB status, you then receive added benefits like early access to new products and exclusive sales and discounts.
I have been a VIB since the launch of the program. Spending well over the $350 a year requirement, I found it very easy to maintain my VIB status. In fact, I found it a little too easy!
I probably spend a little too much at Sephora on a annual basis, and lately haven't felt their rewards program all that rewarding. For a while, some of the 100 and 500 point perks had been lacking (although I have found them much better as of late and have actually been redeeming some points) and the 20% off discount that Sephora once offered their VIBs at select times, had dropped to just 10%.
I feel like Sephora has been eaves dropping on some of my conversations lately because I have been saying for months that Sephora should introduce levels in their program. Enter VIB Rouge; a brand new level for those of us that spend a bit (okay a lot) more in a calendar year. While the program is brand new it has definitely made me excited once again for the Beauty Insider program!
With Rouge comes invitations to special events, free 3-day shipping on all online orders, surprise gifts, unlimited on the house services at the beauty studio and more.
All the VIB Rouge benefits are in addition to the benefits Beauty Insiders and VIBs already receive.
As soon as I heard about the VIB Rouge level, I ran to Sephora to pick up my card. The card comes in a presentation box along with a VIB Rouge Exclusive mini BITE BEAUTY lipstick. I also received a card with current/upcoming promotions.
With so many other sources dedicated to beauty products competing with Sephora, I really feel that Sephora is upping the ante and I am very excited to see what is it store for this new level in membership.
