Sephora has been working hard to try to make getting makeup easier. First, they let us avoid the mall by putting Sephora in Kohl’s stores. Then they partnered with Instacart for same-day delivery and launched their own delivery option right from their app and website.
It must be catching on because Sephora is offering an annual subscription that’ll get you unlimited same-day delivery.
Just in time for the holiday shopping season (and Sephora Black Friday), the same-day delivery subscription gives us one more reason to never have to leave home.
How much is the Sephora same-day delivery subscription? How does it work? Can you use Sephora coupons? Is there a free trial? Here’s what we know about Sephora’s brand-new same-day delivery subscription:
What is Sephora same-day delivery?
Sephora is among the growing number of stores offering same-day delivery. Basically, you place an order via the Sephora app or website and you can choose to have your items delivered to your home within two hours.
They partner with delivery service Instacart to carry this out, but unlike when you order directly through Instacart, there’s no minimum order required for delivery.
You can pay for each Sephora same-day delivery order individually or — as of fall 2022 — get unlimited deliveries for a yearly subscription fee.
How much does Sephora same-day delivery cost?
The Sephora same-day delivery subscription is an annual payment of $49/year. If you’re a die-hard Sephora shopper and don’t have much use for grocery delivery services, it’ll be a cost savings over getting same-day delivery with Instacart.
Instacart Plus is $9.99/month or $99/year, so it could be a really good deal if you’re looking to use more same-day delivery options than just Sephora.
Does Sephora same-day delivery have an order minimum?
You don’t have to hit a minimum delivery order with Sephora same-day delivery. So even if you only need a $5 lipstick, they’ll deliver it to you within two hours at no extra charge.
If you decide to order Sephora through Instacart instead of Sephora online, though, there’s always a $10 minimum order requirement.
Is there a free trial?
You won’t have to pay right away to try the Sephora same-day delivery subscription.
The makeup retailer lets you test unlimited same-day delivery with a free 30-day trial. When the 30 days are up, Sephora automatically charges the card you have on file for the $49 fee.
If you cancel the trial before the 30 days, you won’t get charged, but you’d immediately lose access to the subscription.
How do I schedule same-day delivery?
Here’s how the new same-day delivery subscription works:
- Sign up for the same-day delivery subscription.
- On Sephora.com or the Sephora app, choose the product(s) you want.
- Place the order before your local cutoff time to ensure same-day delivery.
- Choose the same-day delivery option.
- Put in your zip code.
- You’ll get an email or notification when your order is packed and on the way.
- You’ll get notified again once the package is delivered.
Note: Sephora same-day delivery isn’t available everywhere, so put your zip code on the Sephora subscription page to see if your area has it available.
Can I use Sephora coupons on delivery orders?
Yes, you can use any Sephora coupons valid on online orders on any of your same-day deliveries. Bookmark our Sephora deals page to stay on top of sales and coupons to use on your next order.
Is Sephora delivery worth it?
The unlimited Sephora same-day delivery subscription will cost you $49/year. Without it, same-day delivery is $6.95 per order.
The subscription pays for itself after your seventh same-day delivery — well, close enough. Paying for seven same-day deliveries individually costs $48.65 … just $0.35 less than the $49/year subscription.
Technically, you can order as many times a day that you like — as long as it’s before the local cutoff time. That already makes the subscription very worth it.
And if you’re a Sephora Beauty Insider, you’ll get 49 points just for subscribing. That’s the equivalent of $49 spent on Sephora purchases. And Sephora regularly has items in their points store for as little as 50 points. We’ll teach you how to cash out Beauty Insider points to reduce your Sephora spend among many other money-saving Sephora hacks.
