It's a pretty good time to be an insider. The Sephora Canada Beauty Insider program is getting a makeover and there are a bunch of new perks to take advantage of. You can trade in your points for cash, get free shipping and so much more.

Sephora Canada's upgraded loyalty program is now officially in effect across the country so you can start to enjoy all the new perks.

With the updates, there are more ways to save in-store and online.

There is now Beauty Insider Cash which lets you use the points you've earned to get money off your purchases.

To get an idea of how it works, 500 points instantly gives you $10 off when you checkout. You get one point for every $1 spent at makeup retailer.

There's also free shipping. Insiders have to spend $50 to get it, V.I.B. will have to dish out $35 and Rouge members are eligible with all purchases. 

With this loyalty program, there are three different tiers — Insider, V.I.B and Rouge.

Insider is free to join but for the other two levels, you'll have to spend money to get the rewards.

You get V.I.B. when you spend $350 annually and Rouge when you spend $1,000.

Regardless of your status, you can get all of those new perks.

You can also earn points faster and trade them in for savings during new discount and point multiplier events.

During those events, Insiders double their points, V.I.B. triple them, and Rouge members quadruple them.

That'll help you reach the 500 point threshold to get $10 off even faster.

For birthday gifts, you can choose from a bunch of new categories like hair care and body care.

Once physical distancing restrictions are lifted, you'll have access to trips, as well as meet and greets.

Starting in the fall, Rouge members will also get first access to the biggest product launches.

Sephora stores have started to reopen in Ontario, B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, New Brunswick and Quebec.

However, shoppers should expect a different shopping experience with health and safety measures in place.
