    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

    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. Ellie

    I’m only a BI so if anyone would mind giving me the extra discount code it would be greatly appreciated! my email is

  5. 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?

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

  7. 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?

  8. 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!!

  9. Pamela

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

  10. Bethany

    If anyone would be willing to share the VIB friends link/code with me I would truly appreciate. I think there is a link on the email sent out where you can share with a friend. My email is

    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.

    • Vicky

      Dear Kafka,
      In case you still have the code, I would greatly appreciate it! My email is Thank you!

      • Avatar of Kafka Kafka

        Vicky, I want to be fair and give her a chance to get the notification and respond, but if I don’t hear back by midnight CST, I’ll send it to you. I’ll first come back here to post a reply to you to confirm, one way or the other. (That way, you’ll also have a heads up to look for it in your Spam folder file. lol) Hope that seems fair for everyone. :)

      • Avatar of Kafka Kafka

        Vicky, I’m sorry. Purple Horsie replied back to me in the other, original Sephora thread. I emailed her the code as promised. I feel badly and hope you can understand. Perhaps someone else will have a code they will share. :\

  25. 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!

  49. 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?
