Attention Sephora VIBs: It's Time (Again) for the Annual VIB Code


IMPORTANT: Please see my updated post about the expiration date for this code HERE.

Thanks to reader Sandy for this reminder!

This post is for Sephora VIB members only (not Beauty Insiders. UPDATE: Thanks to reader Halley below for confirming that this code does work if you're Rouge!).

It's time once again for the VIB-exclusive annual code! Once a YEAR, Sephora allows VIBs to use the following code on the Sephora website HERE. You can use this code ONCE per year (I believe this started in 2014, but don't quote me on that!).

  • V436CB - 10% off sitewide. Good on ONE ORDER per calendar year.

Again, you can use this code ONCE per year, so you have plenty of time to plot your order and choose wisely. This code is valid on your entire order (not just one item).

And just a reminder that if you're a VIB (or BI) and shop online at Sephora even just a few times a year, you should totally sign up for Sephora Flash if you don't already have that subscription. It pays for itself after just two online orders.

Thanks again, Sandy, for the great reminder!

    3. Agreed! I 100% owe my current VIB status to Sephora Flash. Lol!! I honestly have ordered more from them in the time I've had Sephora Flash than in all the years prior combined! It was genius of them to offer this. ;)

    1. You're so welcome! Yeah, it's sort of under the radar! I'm super excited that I finally get to use it since I turned VIB for the first time ever last year. :)

  3. So can this be used at any point during the year? Or only during a certain time frame?

  4. Oh wow I did not know about the flash! Thank you so much for posting about it, I order a lot of stuff off the website as my only Sephora close to me is inside a small jcpenny store so they don't carry a lot of stuff!! So excited!

    1. Yay! So happy to share that with those who have missed my previous posts. It's one of the best programs ever (well, not for my wallet, but you know what I mean! lol!). :)

    1. Well if it makes you feel any better, this code does work for Sephora Canada (just heard that from a few Instagram followers!). :)

  6. Do you know if Rouge get a higher percentage discount?

  7. This code glitched for me in 2014; I used it multiple times ordering online! :)

  8. So awesome. Thanks for sharing, G! Do you know if Sephora allows you to use more than one code at once? I'd like the 10% off but also want a product freebie.

    1. You're so welcome! And nope. Sephora doesn't allow you to stack codes. I wish!!

  9. Wow,thanks. Didn't know about this. I am a VIB and haven't heard of it before awesome. Especially since it is good to us once at any time during the year.

  11. Thanks G! I wonder if I could wait to use the code for the upcoming palette from Too Faced Sweet Peach.

  12. I could have used this on the order I placed last night. Oh well...I will definitely be ordering from Sephora again pretty soon.

  13. Is this different from the 10% VIB code that you get when your VIB is renewed? I just recently renewed and it says my code is only good for 30 days and a free shipping code for 60 days. If there are two then I'll be sure to use the one that expires first.

  14. Ohh thanks, G! I was about to place a $100+ order since skincare is 2x points through 1/18 for all beauty insiders (any level). Thought to check your site first and sure enough you had a Sephora code! ^_^ I absolutely love flash shipping. I got it last year when I was VIB and it was a great investment. I hit Rouge at the end of the year so now I have free flash shipping as a Rouge. I mentioned to a woman at a Sephora JCP that there are better VIB rewards online and she said she doesn't like paying for shipping and I mentioned Flash shipping to her. I was surprised the sales associate didn't seem to know about flash shipping, she said "oh really? that sounds great"! So worth it, especially since it's not just standard shipping but 2-day shipping on all orders! I'm not sure how it makes financial sense for them but on the other hand maybe it's the reason I spent more last year and I finally became a Rouge! hehe. It's also nice to order online because you always get 3 free samples and there are always so many codes you can use for deluxe samples.

  15. I can't believe I've never heard of this! I'm rouge and I do most of my shopping for sephora online! Thank you!

  16. G, to qualify for VIB, is it your purchases in a calendar year (so, my purchases in December probably don't count for 2016?)? I tried looking online and haven't been able to find anything that says one way or the other. I'm assuming it's calendar year, but didn't know for sure! I want to be VIB so bad, which I know is stupid because the perks aren't that great :) lol

    1. Lindsey, yes it is in a calendar year, however of you spent the entire 350 in December and qualified for VIB it does carry into the next year. Example, I got up to 350 in purchases in Sept 2015. I am now VIB for all of the rest of 2015 and all of 2016. I have from Jan1 - Dec 31, 2016 to requalify and extend my VIB until 2017. I hope that makes sense.

  17. I've been a VIB/VIB Rouge members for 3-4 years and I have never received anything from Sephora about this. It is ridiculous and unprofessional they would not notify their "valued" customers about a coupon code they have for their members.

  18. Trendmood1 on Instagram is saying we only have until Feb 11th to use this code. Do you know if we have the whole calendar year or until Feb 11th to use this code?

    1. On my VIB renewal card, it says only valid 30 days from VIB qualification date.

  20. It is still working for me, however it's only taking 10% off one item instead of the whole order..anyone else having the same issue?

    ReplyDelete
  21. The 10% off code still works however it is just off one item and not the whole order..anyone else having the same issue?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Still works, I used it yesterday in the store, I tried using it a few day ago in my regular store and they wouldn't let me so I left everything to order online, I got close to a huge Sephora yesterday and decided to purchase but when I asked about coupon upon paying they were nice enough to honor it! One time use, but it worked
