Sephora Spring 2016 VIB Event Info (and New Sephora Value Sets & Freebie Codes)

Reader and frequent deal contributor Isu Hapz rocked my world today with a series of comments that she left on the You Tell Me page. Thanks so much for all this great info, Isu! Here's the scoop:

SEPHORA SPRING 2016 VIB EVENT INFO:
  • VIB Rouge: 15% off all purchases in-store and online made between April 7th and April 13th. Sephora will mail/email you a code to use for your discount (the code is ROUGENOTE). On April 7th, you can bring a friend with you to your local Sephora store and you BOTH will receive the 15% off discount plus a free Sephora tote (view tote HERE; thanks to the Reddit community and user Cakedtothenines for that pic!).
  • VIB: 15% off all purchases in-store and online made between April 8th and April 13th. Sephora will mail/email you a code to use for your discount (the code is VIBNOTE).
  • Beauty Insider: 10% off all purchases in-store and online made between April 9th and April 12th. Sephora will mail/email you a code to use for your discount (the code is BINOTE). 

SEPHORA FLASH:
  • Now seems like a good time to once again remind you of Sephora Flash. If you don't already have this subscription (or your VIB status doesn't already give you free shipping), I HIGHLY suggest that you sign up for Sephora Flash HERE. For $10 a year, this gives you free 2-day shipping on all orders, no minimum required, for one full year. The subscription starts when you sign up, meaning that anything else you order when you sign up will ship free, no minimum required. This subscription literally pays for itself after two orders, so if you plan on ordering more than twice per year at Sephora, SIGN UP!

    1. My sephora always has some left over for the following days. They give them away until the run out of them.

  2. I just ordered the Tarte goodies set...that deal was impossible to resist!

  3. Wow, they already don't have promotions very often, but now they're doing 15% off, not even 20% anymore? Doesn't affect me since I'm not a VIB (I avoid buying from Sephora as much as I can), but that's not good news for the beauty community!

    1. Actually Sephora hysterically runs the 15% off in April, another friends and family sale later in the year, and the 20% off in November I believe, so it doesn't look like anything's changed. My wallet wishes I didn't like Sephora!!

    2. I feel you! My wallet can't take anymore of these VIB discounts. However, I will be shopping on April 8th LOL!

  4. Just a reminder to everyone, with the discount online you will not be able to get any of the free gifts with the codes since sephora only allows you to use one promo code at a time.

  5. The VIB code is VIBNOTE - just got my card in the mail!

  6. I think I'm switching to Ulta or even dept stores like macys or nordstrom's. Its upsetting that theres really no point of being a beauty insider other than the free birthday gift or samples through online orders.

  7. Dangit! I just renewed my Flash Shipping and placed an order this morning. Ah well, looks like there will be a round 2 on the 8th. A girls gotta do.....

    1. same thing happened with me lol placed an order and then came to know about the sale. will be going for round 2 also :/

  8. Are there any promo codes to use in-store to get deluxe samples and freebies? on retailmenot, i have only been seeing online promo codes

    ReplyDelete
  9. Are these sets available in store also or just online?

    1. Some stores may have them, I know they do around the holiday but they sell out quickly. I recommend calling your nearest store to find out.

  10. Im a vib rouge too, but they emailed me a code for 10% off only? Do u know abt this code at all?

    ReplyDelete

    1. That's your 10% off when you spend the first $350 (I think that's the #) within the new calendar year. It's 6 digits and a combo of letter and numbers, it's a one-time only use code.

      Delete
    2. If it's a 6 digit code, combination of letters and numbers, then that's your 10% for spending $350 (I think that is the amount) in the new calendar year. It's like an incentive to keep working your spending level up to renew/level up your VIB status.

  11. For anyone thinking about getting the Tarte set above, the eyeshadow palette alone is worth it. I own it and the colors are beautiful. Wish I had known that a set like this was being released because I would've waited in order to try the mascara and lip paint for an additional $4 as well.

  12. The PTR rose cleaning gel was horrible for my skin. It made me develop seborrheic dermatitis.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The Tarte set is a great deal, I own the palette and it's lovely, much better formula than previous Tarte shadows (same as the In Bloom).
    15% off.. really? Basically covers my tax... $7.50 off a $50 purchase.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm just a Beauty Insider and for the past several years, I've always received a coupon for either 10% or 15% off during a week in April. It just came in the mail today for 10% off all purchases April 9-12. In addition to Sephora in-store and online, it's also good at Sephora Inside JCP stores, which is nice. Check your mail! Also, I do think it stinks you can't use the discount and be able to use one more code for a sample.

  15. Whats actually disappointing is that a VIB Rouge doesnt get anythg more than a VIB.

    1. I'M rouge and never got an email or postcard notifying me of the sale! Not the first time they have forgotten to send me a notice. Thank goodness for blogs like this or I would have been S.O.L. You would think Sephora would figure out some better customer service. I agree with you, Rouge is a joke. The perks are practically nonexistant.

  16. I am VIB Rouge and I have yet to receive any email or regular mail about the discount...:(

    ReplyDelete
  17. Great to know! Thank you so much for posting and letting us know the details! <3

  18. I don't understand why I tend to hear about these promos from blogs/twitter/random googling instead of emails/mail from Sephora. It's irritating. One website posted almost two weeks ago about this upcoming event. Why can they get details and Rouges (as well as BI/VIB) are left in the dark... consistently? I'd be happy with advance notice via email and then receiving the snail mail later. I have YET to ever hear anything about the big point rewards (5k,10k, etc) from Sephora. It's only after the fact reading about how other VIB Rouges were so terribly irritated they couldn't get limited availability big rewards - yet, I never even knew they existed until I stumbled upon negative headlines! What gives??

    ReplyDelete
  19. Same here, am VIB Rouge for several years and have never received a word about their promotions. I checked my account settings, called the customer service, nothing helped. Now I just check at the beginning of April and November on temptalia what ar ethe exact sale dates and code. This is ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  20. so annoyed that both vib and vib rouge are getting the same percentage. i emailed sephora to tell them that it's ridiculous!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Does anyone know if we could use the code more than once online? Or do you have to do all of your shopping in one purchase? Thanks in advance ladies!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I made a few separate orders with the same code, so you can use it multiple times!

      Delete
  22. So when do we use the codes (BINOTE)? on the sets or on any products on the site?
    Also, when you use the code how much do you get off the original price?

    ReplyDelete

    1. You should read the complete post before asking questions, it helps. Depending whether you're VIB, VIBRouge, or Beauty Insider you get 10 or 15% off on any item at sephora store or online.

      Delete
  23. why doesnt the BINOTE code work for UK orders.
