Sephora is kicking off the holiday season early this year with its 2023 Holiday Savings Event. Even before Halloween hits, the beauty retailer will slash prices on everything in the store for members of their free loyalty program. For each dollar a member spends, a point is added to their rewards account.

From Oct. 27 through Nov. 6, Sephora will offer a range of discounts — from 10% to 30% — to all of their Beauty Insider members. Each Beauty Insider tier will have ways to save based on their membership status.

Purchases can be made either online or in-store, including Sephora at Kohl’s locations and

How does Sephora’s holiday sale work?

There are three tiers of Sephora’s Beauty Insider rewards membership, which is based on dollars spent per calendar year:

  • Insider: all members start at this level
  • VIB (Very Important Beauty): members who spend $350
  • Rouge: members who spend $1,000

Beginning Oct. 27, all Beauty Insider members can take 30% off all Sephora Collection items.  To get this deal online use the code SCSAVE or mention the code to the customer service representative at the register.

In addition to the 30% discount on Sephora Items for all Beauty Inside members, Sephora has extra savings for each membership tier.

Who has access to Sephora’s sale right now?

Everyone has access to 30% off Sephora Collection items now through Nov. 6, but only Rouge members get access right now to sitewide savings. Through Nov. 6, Rouge members get 20% off now as many times as they’d like during that sale window, on most products sold in store or online (see sale event terms for exceptions.) Use the code TIMETOSAVE for online purchases or mention the code at the register to get the discount. Rouge members can also share their 20% discount with one non-member friend or family member.

Insider and VIB members will get access to sitewide savings starting Oct. 31. Insider members get 10% off, while VIB members receive 15% off all qualifying products until Nov. 6. They also use the TIMETOSAVE code to get eligible sale prices online or at the register.

Members cannot stack their discounts with other promotions. However, Sephora will allow members to use their 30% Sephora Collection discount at the same time as using the 10% to 20% discount for other items.
