Rumors have been circulating that Sephora Flash Shipping would have a price raise from $10 to $15 every since I posted the Sephora Rewards Benefit Updates for 2018 but I haven’t seen anything to validate the price raise. At the moment, Sephora Flash is available for $10 at Sephora.com and there’s no mention on the Sephora site that a price raise was in the works.
Thankfully enough I now have an e-mail in my possession that my reader tweeted me which indeed shows that they’ll be a price change as of September 26th, 2018.
Well that sucks!
The problem with the price raise would be that most people have a serious issue with Sephora’s new shipping method, Lasership.
I already get flash shipping free because I’m a Rouge Member however, if I wasn’t I would pay the $15 for Flash Ship since my orders arrive within one day. I mean if I order something right now from Sephora it’ll be on my doorstep tomorrow. Totally worth $15 for sure. It actually wasn’t always like this for me though! My orders would arrive within 3 to 4 today prior to Lasership. If I ordered today with the old shipping method (which was UPS I believe) I’d get it either Thursday or the latest would be Friday.
I wouldn’t pay more for that kind of service as that’s just regular old shipping. However, with Lasership I would pay the increase without an issue to get my packages as quickly as they have been coming lately.
On that note, I will say no one loves a price increase and I see this being an issue for a lot of people that experience horrible service with Lasership!
Sucks but nothing good lasts forever.
Are you willing to pay the price increase for Sephora Flash?
Have you had a good experience with Lasership?
