Sephora VIB "Madness" Sale

Sephora started a VIB Madness makeup sale today! I'm not really sure whether you need to be a VIB to use the code online (I think the code will work for "regular" Beauty Insiders, but the fine print below is confusing on first read). The VIB code is VIBMADNESS, and I used it this morning. The VIB sale kicks off today, and there is an in-store event from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at Sephora stores. The "regular" Beauty Insider Makeup Madness Sale starts April 12. The event ends on April 19.

Sephora sent VIB Beauty Insiders coupons for use in the store - one for the member and one for a friend. They are bar coded, so I don't know whether the coupon I gave to a friend will help you - or prevent her from using it. It appears from what came in e-mail that you will have to be a Beauty Insider to use the code or store coupon (get one today from a big-spending friend!). It's free to sign up for Beauty Insider status, so why not? I prefer shopping online anyhow!

Here are the rules around this promotion - straight from Sephora's e-mail.

Select stores will have different event hours, check your local store for exact times. Each VIB may only bring one friend during the VIB event on April 8, 2010 from 6-9pm. VIB friends must sign up for Beauty Insider to redeem the 15% off promotion. Online use promo code VIBMADNESS.

I have to say their mailed coupon is the most confusing! The actual coupon says VIB - 15% off April 8-19, but the ad part of the mailer says VIB's Aprl 9-11. I guess I'm confused!

Glad I'm not the only one! The coupon worked yesterday, and I'm a VIB. That's about all I can say for sure!
