3 ways to earn a free Sephora gift card before your next night out

There’s nothing like a great night out with the ladies. I know, if you know me, you’re thinking I say the same thing about brunch with the ladies, spin class with the ladies, and hitting the shops with the ladies. Hey, what can I say? I just absolutely LOVE my friends. Still, I think there’s something special about getting all dolled up for a night out on the town, especially if you can swap skincare and makeup tips while you’re getting ready together!

When it comes to hair and makeup, my absolute favorite store is Sephora. I swear, I could spend hundreds of dollars there and still not get all of the beauty products I wanted! There are just far too many great choices! Luckily, I recently found a way to earn a free Sephora gift card. Actually, scratch that, I found three great ways to earn a free Sephora gift card. Because I’d hate to think you wouldn’t have them to get ready for your next night out, I’ll share them with all of you!

So, stick with me and we’ll go over all three of these great ways to earn a free Sephora gift card before your next night out. If you’re anything like me, you’ll also want to take notes on all this so you can share it with your girlfriends the next time you see them!

How to Earn a Free Sephora Gift Card No. 1: Sephora’s Loyalty Program

The first way I recommend to earn a free Sephora gift card is to participate in Sephora’s own loyalty program. This is one of those great internal shopper loyalty programs that gives you perks for being a repeat visitor to stores. While this program technically might not give you a free Sephora gift card, it gives you plenty of things that are just as good as a free Sephora gift card!

For example, if you sign up, you’re automatically eligible for free beauty classes. If you go a step further and spend $350 or more in a calendar year, then you can earn yourself free monthly gift sets that are filled with samples from top brands, a free 45-minute custom makeover once a year, and the ability to sign up for free two-day shipping for an entire year for just $10. If you spend $1,000 a year at Sephora (which I’m honestly close to spending that amount), you can earn invitations to exclusive sales events as well as use of a private hotline with a Sephora beauty advisor who’s available to answer all of your questions.

How to Earn a Free Sephora Gift Card No. 2: Survey Junkie

Another slightly, less glamorous way to earn a free Sephora gift card is by taking surveys through Survey Junkie. It’s pretty simple. Basically, you put in all of your demographic information: age, gender, family status, where you live, etc. Then the app sends you relevant surveys. The more surveys you fill out, the more points you get.

You can then eventually trade those points in for—that’s right, you guessed it—a free Sephora gift card. I like this one because, to be totally honest, taking these surveys is really easy and doesn’t require a whole lot of thought. Sure it gets a little boring, but I can generally do some surveys in the morning when I wake up, on my breaks at work, or at night while I’m making dinner. When I take enough surveys, I can earn myself yet another free Sephora gift card!  

How to Earn a Free Sephora Gift Card No. 3: Shopkick

My absolute favorite way to earn a free Sephora gift card is with this shopping rewards app called Shopkick. How it works is that Shopkick gives you points for the things you do when you go out grocery shopping, to the mall, or even to stores like Best Buy and Walmart. This includes things like walking into stores, going down aisles browsing products, and making purchases. You can then trade in the points you earned for a free Sephora gift card.

Physically going to a store isn’t the only way to earn a free Sephora gift card. There are tons of ways that Shopkickers can earn rewards right from the app—no need to go anywhere. These include kicks for watching videos and instant surprise kicks from going on Easter egg hunts in the app. Users can also get amazing deals where you can earn big points and rewards by shopping on your phone at stores like Amazon and Walmart.

Physically going to a store isn’t the only way to earn a free Sephora gift card.

Like I said, there are a few different ways to earn a free Sephora gift card for your next big night out. I personally like to combine all three of these ways; I take surveys when I’m bored, participate in the loyalty program when I shop at Sephora, and score points via Shopkick when I shop at most of my other favorite stores. It really adds up!

However, Shopkick is easily my favorite. I just love how it turns all of my trips out to the store into a little scavenger hunt for points. I also really like jumping in on the jokes and other discussions on the Shopkick social media channel. It’s a great place to share tips about the app, or anything really. I highly recommend it!
