Urban Decay Beauty Junkies Rewards
I usually don’t talk much about rewards programs because I feel like most of them are pretty ‘meh’. Sephora’s is pretty lackluster (particularly the Rouge level, which IMO is pretty useless). Ulta’s has a nice setup – dollar off rewards instead of miniature things I might not be interested in anyway – but they don’t sell most of my favorite brands, so I don’t actually shop there much. Nordstrom piloted a beauty rewards program, but it looks like it’s been cancelled as of last month. Sadface.
But this morning I got an email about a new reward program from Urban Decay called Beauty Junkies. Side note: I think the name totally fits their brand image. Even though I buy most of my Urban Decay stuff from other retailers, this one might actually be enough to get me to buy straight from their website – the benefits are actually really good! Like Sephora it has different levels, and each one has its own benefits.

The base perks on their own are nothing to sneeze at, but what I’m really excited about is the points system. They have the standard one point per dollar scheme, but there are also other ways to earn points too- connecting your social accounts, adding stuff to your favorites, referring friends and writing reviews (among other things). In fact, I signed up less than an hour ago and without even buying anything, I already have 85 points – almost enough to redeem my first reward. The rewards are a monetary discount, so score for that! Your first 100 points gets you $10 off, and then you get a $20 ‘kickback’ for every 200 points after that.
So yeah – compared to other reward systems, this one seems pretty damn generous. The shipping issue especially was the main reason that I never bought much from the UD site, so that’ll definitely make me want to shop more from them directly.
What do you think of the program? Are there other ones out there that you like better?
If you want, feel free to use my referral link (here) or use the referral code 6n83xwqg. You’ll get an extra 10 points and so will I!
