The Best Beauty Rewards Programs for 2020

It’s a New Year and there are lots of new products to try and earn rewards from your favorite stores.  So you ask, what’s in it for me?

If you’re on the hunt for new products to make you happier and more beautiful, below are the best beauty reward programs for 2020.

Your get tremendous saving on beauty brands you love, and the ones that have yet to get discovered.

Let’s start with Sephora.

Sephora has become a hotspot for new brands coming to market. Much of the skin care offerings new on Sephora shelves are skin care products with organic ingredients. It seems as if every time you walk into Sephora, there’s a new skincare and makeup line waiting just for you.

 After all, a new year also brings a fresh new face.

Of course, with any reward program, the more you spend, the more you get. If you’re a free “Beauty Insider” you get one point for every dollar spent and three choices for your birthday gift. All tiers get the Rewards Bazaar where on limited quantity specials.

 For the VIB program you earn 1.25 for every dollar spent. You get three birthday gift choices instead of just one in the Insider tier.

 The Rouge program offers 1.5 points for every dollar you spend. Plus, With the Rouge program you get full size products. The seasonal savings that come with the top-level Rouge program offers year round discounts. Rouge members can exchange 2500 points for $100 to spend at Sephora. The Rouge program and the VIP program offer four choices for your birthday gift every year. The Insider program allows three choices for your birthday gift.

Points don’t expire at Sephora- they just keep accumulating.

New to Sephora, is the Sephora credit card by Visa. You earn 15% off your first purchase when you open the card. What’s great about this card is that you get 4% cash back in rewards each time you make a purchase at Sephora.

 Shopping outside of Sephora?  You’ll earn 1% cash back on all your purchases. Once you spend $500 outside of the Sephora store you’ll earn a $20 Sephora credit card reward. You’ll have to wait 90 days from approval, but that gives you plenty of time to rack up points.

 We did notice something on the Sephora website about their credit cards offerings. There are two cards, a Sephora card, and a Sephora Visa card. Yes, there is the difference. With the Sephora Visa card you’ll get all the benefits like zero reliability, tap-to-pay, auto rental coverage, and roadside dispatch (wow that’s a nice perk.) With both cards you’ll still get 15% off the first purchase, no annual fee, and 1% back in rewards on purchases outside of Sephora.
