What Stores Sell Sephora Gift Cards

By David Krug 2 minute read

Cosmetics, skin care, hair care, and other cosmetics lovers will appreciate Sephora gift cards.

Since Walgreens has more than 9,000 locations across the country, you may be wondering if Walgreens sells Sephora gift cards: does Walgreens? Here are the results of my investigation!

There are no Sephora gift cards for sale at Walgreen’s in 2022.

As of 2022, Walgreens will no longer offer Sephora gift cards for purchase in-store or online. Sephora gift cards can be purchased at any of the company’s locations, as well as at JCPenny Sephora stores and other third-party retailers such as Walmart, Kroger, and Amazon. Between $10 and $500, these can be purchased.

If you’d like to find out why Walgreens doesn’t sell Sephora gift cards and where you can get them in its place, read on!

What Other Gift Cards Are Available at Walgreens?

For any amount between $5 and $500, Walgreens sells its own gift cards, which can be purchased in-store or online.

These gift cards can be used to purchase any beauty product from Walgreens’ dedicated beauty section.

Gift cards from American Express, Visa and MasterCard are also available at Walgreens.

Most retail stores, including Sephora and JCPenney-Sephora, accept these prepaid gift cards, which can be used to purchase goods and services.

Walgreens does not sell Sephora gift cards, so why not?

Sephora gift cards would compete with Walgreens’ own beauty product sales channel, so they aren’t sold there.

A move to sell gift cards to other (competitor) beauty supply stores would drive customers away from Walgreens’ wide selection of beauty products, both in-store and online.

Can You Buy Gift Cards for Sephora Online?

Freestanding Sephora stores and JCPenny-Sephora department stores both sell Sephora gift cards, which range in price from $10 to $500.

The prices at standalone Sephora and JCPenny-Sephora stores differ slightly.

All Sephora and JCPenney-Sephora locations, and sephora.com, accept Sephora gift cards, which come with a free gift (such as a compact mirror or pouch).

Those purchased from JCPenny-Sephora stores, on the other hand, can only be used at JCPenny-Sephora stores.

Sephora gift cards can also be purchased from any of the following third-party retailers besides Sephora:

  • Rx Rite Aid
  • Amazon
  • Kroger
  • Toys R Us
  • Toys R Us
  • Walmart
  • Lowe’s

Bottom Line

At any Walgreens location or online, Sephora gift cards are not available. For amounts ranging from $10 to $500, these can be purchased directly from independent Sephora and JCPenny-Sephora stores. Sephora gift cards can also be purchased from third-party retailers like Amazon, Kroger, and Walmart.
