    the promo code wont work for sephora, what time is it supposed to kick in? im eastern time, and yes i most definitely am a vib

  2. Ingher Feng

    any idea what time the sephora sale is gonna start? 12:33AM EST and the code is not working

  3. Kafka

    As an FYI, I think — *think* but am not 100% sure — that the time of Sephora sale starts on Pacific/West Coast time. The card I got in the mail says that the sale ends 11/12/2012 “at 11:59 p.m. PST.” I’m reading that to mean that the start date and time is also on PST. So 3 a.m. East Coast Time, 2 a.m. Central.

  4. Quick question: If I put products that are on sale (like Tarina Tarantino makeup) on my cart at Sephora, will the 20% off apply to them as well?

  5. Jessica

    It’s really a pain how they NEVER have the sale on Canada online orders… I guess time to head to the store then!

  6. Laura

    Still not working at 7 am PST. Keeps saying the promotion has bot yet started. Tote was added to bag though. Any idea what time it’s valid or what the deal is why the code won’t work?

  7. Kathleen

    I’m pretty sure it started at 12 AM Pacific time. I stayed awake until 10:30 PST waiting, but fell asleep and ended up ordering at 4:30 AM PST. 3 of the items I wanted sold out in that time, boo!!

  8. Pamela

    so there’s not going to be a 20% off for the BI’s??

  9. Sam

    Hi, does anyone have an extra Sephora VIB friend offer that they won’t use? If so can you forward that to me? I would really appreciate it! Thank you!!!=] (bluestardust24@hotmail)

  10. Thanks for sharing the 20% off Christine! I am $15 away from VIB status at Sephora so no 20% off for me this year. This helps so much! Thanks!!!

  11. Greta

    I have a friend code to share is someone replies with their email!

  12. Heidi

    I have an extra code. If someone reply to this post with your email. I will give it to.

  13. Kafka

    Purple Horsie, if you still want the code, let me know. Neither my sister nor my best friend wanted it. Since you were the first to ask me, I’ll email it to you if you post your email. I’ve posted the same message to you in the original Sephora thread too, in case you check that one instead or get notifications from it. It’s just the promo code itself, since I never got a VIB email from Sephora to forward on.

  14. Danielle

    A little peeved at Sephora- just received the 20% off today, the day of the sale! But better late than never! Anyways, I have an extra code- if anyone wants it, I’ll send it to the first person who replies to this!

  15. Tamika

    If anyone wants a friend code, reply to this with your email.

  16. Minlay

    If anyone has an extra code please email me, wanted to buy some Christmas gifts!!

  17. Katie

    If anyone has an extra invite I would appreciate it so much! I’m just under the VIB mark :(

  18. Janet

    I would love to share a code with a fellow MU junkie. Just contact me :)

  19. Kayla

    I have an extra code for anyone who needs it. Just let me know your email address :)

  20. Brenda

    If anyone still needs a code let me know! First one to reply gets it.

  21. Sarah

    I know I’m late, but if anyone has an extra VIB code that they would be willing to share, I would greatly appreciate it!!! THanks so much! :)

  22. Angela

    Hi. It’s probably too late but does anyone here have another VIB code that they’d be willing to share?


  23. Bkirk

    I just purchased with the VIB discount online and am wary of the color choices. What’s the policy for exchanging items? Will I have to pay the difference since I bought them at 20% off?
