One of the topics I've been considering blogging about are various rewards programs offered by beauty retailers and the various brands. I'm a member of just about all of them (sadly, Nordstrom's new beauty rewards program isn't available in my area yet).
First up: Dior Diva Rewards
For those who weren't aware, Dior runs a rewards program called Dior Diva. It's free to join, and requires just a bit of organization to reap the benefits. Once a year, submit all of your receipts from authorized retailers for special rewards. Authorized retailers include Dior, Sephora, and all counters. The key is that only original receipts (e-receipts are allowable) can be submitted, so hold onto all of them! The other major limitation on this program is that there is a 12-month window for each redemption.
Rewards change every year, and I just received my 2014 rewards. I had $750 worth of spending, so I was able to redeem for both the 500 and 250 rewards. Other levels are 100, 1000, 2500, and 5000. This isn't meant to be a comprehensive review of the program, but rather a peek into this year's rewards.
Glamorous Diva (250 points)
I was pleasantly surprised by this reward. The official description states that there is a mirror plus three deluxe minis. I should've known that Dior would hit this out of the park.
I received minis of Miss Dior EDT, Capture Total One Serum, and Dior Addict #578 Diorkiss. I was thrilled because I adore perfume minis and had been looking at that particular Addict lipstick.
The mirror has the beautiful Dior bow that's often featured on blushes (like this year's spring collection), and is very weighty on its own. It comes with its own leather pouch.
Perfectly Polished (500 points)
I was really excited for this reward, for obvious reasons. I received minis of: Rose Dauphine (#253), Terre de Sienne (#428), Rouge Massai (#853), and the standard top coat. This set also comes with a full-sized Creme Abricot, one of my favorites.
While many GWPs throughout the year may have greater value, it was lovely to just be able to redeem my receipts for an extra gift just for purchasing a brand's products. I keep an envelope for my receipts and have just made it part of my regular way of processing new purchases.
