It’s Sephora’s turn for great beauty deals! The Spring Bonus Sale Event goes from April 13th-16th and again April 20th-23rd for VIB Rouge members who will receive 15% off. On Friday April 13th, VIB Rouge member can bring a friend in store and extend the Rouge discount to them as well. Plus, you can both receive a free gift bag with samples and a Sephora card case with any purchase. For VIB members and Beauty Insiders, the sale goes from April 20th-23rd. VIB members will receive 15% off as well while Beauty Insiders will receive 10% off their purchases. Here are the promo codes if you choose to shop online:
For Rouge members: YAYROUGE
For VIB members: YAYVIB
For Beauty Insiders: YAYINSIDER
Again, since this is a very modest (and pretty passable discount), I really try to strategize when selecting my purchases in order to maximize my bang for my buck! Here are some personal rules and tips that I try to follow to keep my cart from getting out of hand:
Tip #1 – Choose items that are exclusive to Sephora. Since this retailer doesn’t offer many deals year round, this is a good time to stock up items that you can only find here (e.g. Sephora Collection, Fenty Beauty, Exclusive Sephora Collaborations)
Tip #2 – Take advantage of value sets! These sets are typically priced lower than their actual values, so you’re making a good deal even better with the discount code. This is an excellent way to also try products from a variety of brands or try some favorites from one specific company.
Tip #3 – Check out the sale page! It may seem redundant but this just means double discounts.
Tip #4 – If you know that you will use an item regularly, it may not be a bad idea to stock up on back-ups while they’re on sale.
Tip #5 – Have fun but don’t get crazy, because that can be expensive! Trying new items is just half the fun, so I do let myself get a couple random items to try out.
*Bonus Pro-Tip: If you shop online, don’t forget to take advantage of Ebates. This is a cash back program that I have been using for years! This is in addition to any cash back that you may already receive from your credit card. What a great way to sweeten your deals! Check out Ebates or sign up by clicking here.
