Sephora VIB Rouge $100 Reward – What I bought plus tips on getting your own!

Sephora rewards bazaar has exclusive items for vib and vib rouge

If you shop at Sephora you are probably familiar with their Beauty Insider program and the online Rewards Bazaar but in case you aren’t – Sephora has a free rewards program. You can read more about it on their website but in a nutshell you earn points based on the amount of money that you spend. Anyone can enroll and begin earning points. If you spend $350 or more in a calendar year you get VIB status and if you spend $1,000 or more you become VIB Rouge.

Vib rouge beauty insiders can get a $100 reward coupon

Of all the special rewards only available for VIB and VIB Rouge, the best is probably the $100 reward which is not a gift card but a coupon. Every Tuesday and Thursday new items are available in the Rewards Bazaar at 9am pacific time and this is when you can snag one of the $100 rewards. In addition to being Rouge the rewards are 2500 points.

how to get a $100 reward from sephora

  • First, you have to be Rouge which does mean that you have to spend $1,000 at Sephora. There is no getting around that. One way to get to that $1,000 without spending that much money is to share your reward account with someone else. If you have a friend, family member, someone that you are close with that you can share the account with, this will help you both get that Rouge status – the catch is that you will have to share the points and perks so make sure that it is someone you know is going to be willing to share!
  • Next, you have to save up all your points to get to 2500. DO NOT SPEND POINTS ON SAMPLES!!!!!! Most people agree that Sephora’s rewards are kind of a bad value. Unless it’s something you really want to try I suggest never redeeming less than 500 points at a time and if you’re saving for the $100 coupon every point counts.
  • Subscribe to Play! by Sephora monthly subscription box and redeem the 50 bonus cards that come in each one.  You also earn points on the $10 subscription so this is 60 points per month = 720 points per year.

For all my tips and tricks be sure to watch my YouTube video above!

Important things to know about the $100 sephora reward

Because the reward is a $100 coupon NOT a gift card, there are some important things to keep in mind before you use it. Once you have the reward, it has to be used within 90 days. It can be used in store or online but you have to use the entire $100 at once because it is essentially $100 off a purchase. Because of this, you can’t return or exchange what you get. You should buy something you know that you aren’t going to want to return. It can be something you are stocking up on, a palette or item you know you will like, but probably not the best time to try a new foundation or concealer.

You will not earn points on your purchase. If you use Ebates, you will not earn points there either because since the reward is a coupon it’s like you are spending $0 if you only spend $100. (If you are not already using Ebates, consider signing up! You can earn a % back on Sephora and Ulta purchases, plus many other retailers!*) 

Some people on message boards complain that it’s really difficult to get one of these rewards but I got one on my first try. You need to be on a computer not your phone, be on the Rewards Bazaar a couple minutes before 9am pacific, and refresh until it shows up.
