Sephora Beauty Insider Sweeps gets you a chance to win one millionaire dollars. Sounds pretty good right? I mean, it’s like the lotto you gotta be in it to win it and if it’s as easy as submitting my name and e-mail address sure, why not I’ll enter.
You actually have to buy your way into this giveaway! Sort of….! There’s fine print and all that good stuff.
Here’s how it works.
You head over to www.beautyinsidersweeps.com and pop your e-mail address, country, and phone number into a little form you’ll be able to buy your way into the giveaway using your points.
300 points gets you one entry, 500 points gets you two entries, 700 points gets you three entries, 850 gets you four entries, and 1000 points gets you five entries.
This is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Why would anyone want to waste points like this? Oh wait, I know why because there really aren’t any good rewards anyway might as well splurge on a giveaway. Sephora, girl, you’re reaching here with this bullsh1T!
Now, what Sephora doesn’t mention is this a good time to read the fine print because you can actually get an entry free with an alternative method they mention in the rules of the giveaway which you can see here.
Via snail mail you can send them your name, address, phone number, and beauty insider number on an index card and mail to Sephora to get your free entry without spending 300 points to get it.
I do appreciate a good giveaway but this is one of the lamer ones I seen. It reminds me of those raffle giveaways people do on Instagram where you have to buy your a spot! It just feels oddly underhanded.
What do you think of spending points to enter a giveaway?
I’d love to hear your thoughts!
