The calendar has turned and May is here. It's all about May flowers, Mother's Day, and the unofficial kickoff to summer known as Memorial Day Weekend. Sephora's May 2019 deals and rewards are also here. The fresh batch of benefits and exclusive perks for members of Sephora's Beauty Insider loyalty program are plentiful and sought-after.
Here's how the program works. The Beauty Insider program is free to join and you earn redeemable points for every dollar you spend at Sephora. Once you spend $350 in a calendar year, you earn VIB status. When you spend $1,000 or more in a year, you are upgraded to the top tier VIB Rouge status. The more you spend, the higher your membership level. The higher your membership level, the better your rewards and benefits.
If you've only recently joined the Beauty Insider program at the base level and have yet to attain VIB or VIB Rouge status, there are lots of discounts and free gifts available for you, as well.
Sephora's Beauty Offers features premium freebies, like branded bags or samples of new products that are available with a minimum purchase and a promo code.
The Sephora Rewards Bazaar boasts items and experiences that you can't purchase.
Rather, Beauty Insiders obtain these rewards by cashing out the aforementioned points that are accrued with each dollar spent at Sephora. These offerings start as low as 100 points and can go as high as 50,000 points. While the Living Proof product and belt bag combos are now sold out, there's lot of other minis to try out. You never know. You may just find your new Holy Grail among them.
Here are the nine best deals and rewards for May.
