Sephora is offering free shipping for $10/year....

Well,  I guess it's not really free then, is it?!
Anyway, it's a $10 charge & you get free shipping on all your orders - no minimum purchase.  U.S. Only (sorry!).
I'm trying to decide if it would be worth it for me.  There are a few staples that I usually get at Sephora, &  it would save me a trip to the mall where I am usually tempted to buy other things.

There was a time when I would have jumped on this but now I find that I'm less likely to order makeup and related beauty products online. I want to see and touch products before I buy if at all possible. That is probably the result of living for 12 years in a village so remote that ordering cosmetics online was the only way to get new things more than once a year.

Besides being a good deal for regular customers it's a shrewd move on Sephora's part. Once people have "invested" their $10 they will want to maximize it and will be more likely to place orders. I don't know what their shipping was like before (it's been a long time since I ordered from Sephora) but I presume people will react as I have done to Amazon's Prime program. Knowing that I don't have to pay additional shipping charges makes it very easy to place an order for just one or two items at a time. Several orders of just one or two items add up in a hurry.

I had thought about this but too much temptations and don't really need anything.  :)
