2. Returns and Exchanges
If you are not completely satisfied with a Sephora purchase or gift for any reason, Sephora welcomes you to return new or gently used products for a full refund to your original method of payment if returned within 30 days of purchase, in most cases. Returns that are made from 31-60 days after purchase are eligible for online credit (if returned to us by mail) or store credit (if returned in-store). In order to complete the return, you must have a proof of purchase.
Please review our return, refund, and exchange policies below for purchases made on Sephora.com, purchases of Sephora items on third-party marketplaces (including, but not limited to, Instagram, Google, YouTube and Facebook), purchases made in Sephora stores and Instacart, Doordash or Shipt orders. Products must be returned in new or gently used condition. Sephora monitors return activity for abuse and reserves the right to limit returns or exchanges at Sephora in all instances. Beauty Insider points and spend associated with all refunds will be removed when the transaction is processed. All returns are subject to validation and approval at Sephora’s discretion. If a return is not approved by Sephora for any reason, the item may not be returned to you. We may ask you for a driver’s license or government ID to verify your identity.
3. Happy cards
Happy Cards are a type of prepaid card with multiple categories. These prepaid cards give customers more choice and flexibility with no fee.
We have partnered with Happy Cards, and is featured on the Happy Teen, Happy Lady, and Happy Her prepaid cards. These prepaid cards are redeemable at all Sephora locations in the US and online.
How to Use Online and Check the Balance:
To make an online purchase:
Select CREDIT as the payment method.
Enter the 16-Digit Card number located on the back of the Happy Card in the credit card field. Do not enter the 16-Digit Card number into the gift card field.
If prompted for a billing address, enter your shipping address.
If the purchase is larger than the balance, you will need to use a Gift Card or eGift Card to pay the remaining balance. You can then use the Happy Card in the Credit Card section of payment method and a Gift Card in the Gift Card section of payment method
The Card is redeemable only at the merchants whose logos appear on the front of the Card.
There are no fees.
To check the balance call 855-606-3494.
The funds on these gift cards do not expire, but if the valid thru date on the gift card has passed, call 855-606-3494 for a replacement card mailed at no cost.
These cards cannot be replaced if lost or stolen. Treat them as you would cash.
