When Sephora opened its first Victoria outlet in the Mayfair Shopping Centre in August 2010, fans of the beauty emporium Twittered up a storm of yippies and yahoos. The store carries dozens of premium fragrances and skincare product lines for men and women, from Amazing Cosmetics to Chanel to l’Occitane to Zirh.
Register online for Sephora’s “Beauty Insiders” club and you will receive a FREE birthday gift—not just once, but once a year!
For 2011, Sephora is giving its female members a 6-ounce bottle of Philosophy Shampoo/Shower Gel/Bubble Bath in the Vanilla Cupcake scent (value approx. $$). Men will receive a dual gift of Jack Black products: the Beard Lube shaving lotion and Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser (combined value approx. $$)
There are two ways to claim your annual Sephora gift, one that gets you the goody at no cost whatsoever, and one that requires a purchase.
GET IT FREE
In the month of your birthday—14 days before or after the date—go to any Sephora retail location. To claim your free gift, you’ll need to present your Sephora membership card (which you can obtain at any outlet after registering online) or simply show the cashier the email address you used to register on the Sephora website. Voila, free stuff.
GET IT FREE WITH PURCHASE
As above, in the month of your birthday—including 14 days before and after—go online to Sephora.com. When you place an order for any product, you’ll have the option at checkout to click a box that will prompt Sephore to send your birthday freebie out with that order. Note that you can NOT request only the birthday item online.
