Sephora: $15 or $20 Off $40 Purchase Beauty Insider Coupon

So I was so excited when I saw a $20 off $40 coupon from Sephora yesterday, I totally wasn't expecting it at all. Sephora and I are not the best of friends you see, living an hour+ away from Toronto before I could not get to a Sephora store and every coupon they had was in-store only, so it left me really annoyed. BUT! As you all know, I just moved to Toronto and Sephora welcomes me right in with this awesome, fantastic coupon.

Alright, VIB's you get $20 off $40, while everyone else with a Beauty Insider membership gets $15 off $40, which is still think is pretty damn sweet. This coupon is valid in-store only in US and Canada from December 2-13, 2010. I was worried cause I didn't get the $15 off one and I have multiple accounts (I've only shopped online with Sephora so I accidentally made several) but turned out it went into my Spam folder! So check your email carefully if you didn't get one, cause you may have. I think VIB's should get more, but whatever, I am using this and loving it. So I am making this post asking you what you guys are getting with your coupon, hmmm?

Going into Sephora is like entering a makeup candy store for me, I get way too excited and have to be very careful to not overspend. I got two coupons so I will be definitely planning this out. I am thinking Makeup Forever HD foundation and Sephora #55 Airbrush powder brush.

What are you girls getting with your coupon?

I just posted about it after reading NouveauCheap and I'm not sure if it applies to Canadian customers but there actually ISN'T a minimum purchase (as far as the online thing goes)

I got a 10 dollar hand cream for 1.83 after paying tax and shipping.

@Mai - it says minimum $40 purchase right on the coupon. I am planning on spending that much anyway so it doesn't matter. But thanks for letting me know, I'll check the $15 one too and see what it says.

Yeah it's really strange, it says that there is a $40 dollar minimum but when I made my purchase I only had a $10 dollar item in my cart. Of course I don't know if this would apply for Canadian users

Justine @ Productrater said... Best Blogger Tips

Oh I should of mentioned, I am in Canada so we don't get the option of shopping with this online (I did read Nouveau Cheap's blog about this too).

I'm so sad. I'm a VIB and cannot go to a Sephora anytime soon. I'm going to be in Toronto Dec 18 for a meetup, but it'll be expired then.

Shop for me? ;)

Alina said... Best Blogger Tips

I got it too :) I was so happy hehehe. I am thinking of getting the new Urban Decay The Black palette eyeshadow palette, and the Urban Decay 24/7 jackpot glide-on eye pencil set.

Michelle said... Best Blogger Tips

LOL, you scared me for a sec. I read through this post of yours and you wrote this promo was going from Dec 2 - 3 and so I thought I missed out on it. *phew*

Sounds like you've got some great choices. The Sephora brush sounds really good by the reviews.
I'm considering on getting either the Laura Mercier Oil-free Tinted Moisturizer or one of the Dior foundations.

Justine @ Productrater said... Best Blogger Tips

@michelle - ack! thanks for correcting me.. nah it's until the 13th. ;)

i used this today on a $41 shiseido sunscreen! great deal :D

Junerose said... Best Blogger Tips

You got TWO $20 VIB coupons??!! Girl, you are one champion beauty product buyer ;)
I am a VIB, too and didn't get a coupon...wonder what's up with that. Might be a blessing in disguise as I really am trying hard not to buy anything until I force myself to use up most of the stuff that I have.
I highly recommend that you check out the Diorskin Nude Fresh Glow Hydrating foundation. Happy shopping!

Justine @ Productrater said... Best Blogger Tips

@Junerose - Oh no, I got one $15 off and one $20. I have never shopped in-store before so I have a couple of beauty insider accounts. Thanks for the recommendation, I am going to be a crazy girl in a makeup candy store when I go, don't know how I will contain myself. It will be my first time actually buying anything in-store at sephora, normally I just browse instore and shop online cause there wasn't one near me until now. ;)

That's really strange! On the back of my coupon (this was mailed and emailed), it says that you can use it online. It says to enter the card number and pin at checkout like you would a normal gift card.

I wonder if the offer for Canadians is different? You should be able to use it in-store and online!

But I wonder if I could use it twice? In-store and online LOL!

Justine @ Productrater said... Best Blogger Tips

@kali - ya for Canadians generally speaking all the coupons offers are in-store only unfortunately.

Lisa said... Best Blogger Tips

I received the coupon also and I would get the UD naked palette but it won't be in stock at my Sephora until the new year. Any reccomendations? That brush sounds really amazing, I just bought the Sonia Kashuk flat top brush from my trip to the states, did you like that brush?

Rakhshanda said... Best Blogger Tips

Just saw your blog and it's lovely!!! I'm following you..try checking out mine.

Nancy said... Best Blogger Tips

Kali, I even called the 1-800 number and they told me I couldn't do it online, or phone. Which will apparently change in the "future" lol :/

Justine, I meant - go for me, I'll give you the money and you send it to me. But I was half-joking lol. I don't even really need anything from there as I just went wild last weekend.

What did you end up buying? I'm excited to see!

My cousin didn't use her's so I did and I got a UDPP in the professional size and a nars blush!

♥Mishi à la mode♥ said... Best Blogger Tips

i got this coupon too! I was so shocked.. i havn't used it yet though. I also got another one in my email.. maybe I can use it twice ?!?!

Justine @ Productrater said... Best Blogger Tips

@Lisa - Ya the sonia kashuk flat top is a nice brush, it's smaller than most of my foundation flat top brushes though, good for cream blush.

@Nancy - I haven't gone yet, planning to go Monday.

Wendy said... Best Blogger Tips

Definitely using mine this weekend! I'm probably getting two MUFE eyeshadows, because I'm still working on filling up my palette. They are $22 each, so that puts me just a little over $40. It'll feel like a BOGO deal! So excited for it. :)
