There is a new change to the Vera Bradley birthday coupon. For those of you have received them in the past you are used to getting your birthday card with a coupon printed inside for $20 off a $20 purchase. Everyone with June birthdays has received the new offer: Choose to receive either 25% off your entire purchase at any Vera Bradley Store or verabradley.com OR 20% off your entire purchase at any Vera Bradley Outlet Store. That card is in the photo below.
There is a different version of the card that says: Choose to receive 40% off any one item at any Vera Bradley Store or verabradley.com OR 20% off your entire purchase at any Vera Bradley Outlet Store.
Before everyone got the same offer, so I don't know how they decide which one they are mailing out to you. Either way, it can be a great deal if you are planning on buying a few items or even one larger item. You definitely can save more than the $20 offered in the old card.
If you currently don't get a birthday card from Vera Bradley you can contact Vera Bradley customer service.
Happy Birthday everyone!
That kind of stinks, though; now you have to spend at least $100 to get the same $20 former coupon value at 20% off, or $50 with the 40% off one item one. I used to use it to get a small item essentially free or for $10. I always said VB had the best birthday offer in the business.ReplyDelete
I have a question regarding these coupons or gift cards. Can they be used at a department store that sells VB? If not, then many of us are limited to online shopping only and is not really fair for our local retailers.ReplyDelete
I'm not sure about department stores but two of my Vera boutiques(they aren't just Vera stores) accept them. They are gold Vera Bradley stores. I don't know if that makes a difference. They don't allow them on sale items. If there is something I want that's on sale I just use it online or at my Vera outlet. I would ask your stores if they will take them.Delete
My local Vera stores do not accept any of these types of coupons.Delete
I'm disappointed in the change, personally. With how much I spend on VB, I appreciated getting a little something as a gift. Now I'd have to spend more to save. Not as worth it to me. Not that it matters, for some reason I never got my coupon for my June birthday this year :-(ReplyDelete
I'm so disappointed about this offer. I just used my $20 off card last friday and did a you tube video on how to save money by using that thing. It was the best Vera deal. Between my Vera bags falling apart and now this new birthday offer,I am about to stop buying things from there. So bummed!ReplyDelete
Yes, quality is declining very rapidly. I have never gotten a birthday $20 off and recently learned about them. Having a birthday this summer and was really looking forward to using it for an eyeglass case. Now I would only get $5 off (25%) or $4 off (20%) not sure which one it is as post above is not written as the Vera coupon....instead of $20 off my $22 case. So I know I will not use the coupon now. Excitement turned to disappointment.Delete
simply put, to me, this sucks.ReplyDelete
I'm also disappointed by this. I buy a lot of smaller Vera items (wallets, coin purses, cosmetics, wristlets), so the $20 is a good way for me to get some items for real cheap or free. I'm glad I just had a birthday, though; otherwise I'd be real disappointed if this was the coupon I got instead of the $20 coupon I was expecting.ReplyDelete
Hey, at least we'll still get something! It's really disappointing to see how upset some people are getting about this. Vera doesn't have to give us anything! I love my Vera! I'm grateful for her generosity!ReplyDelete
As a VB employee I can tell you that, at least at our store, we have a love hate relationship with the knew changes. Generally it stink for us because we can't make people's days with such a generous gift but there is Definently a reason for it. The amount of fraud we see on these is unbelievable. I hope most people will see that they are doing best to give like a girls best friend but not be taken advantage of by a frenemyReplyDelete
I'm stoked I get a discount for my birthday! I feel blessed that my favorite brand is offering me 40% off a single item for July, or 20% off at the outlet. Other brands I purchase haven't offered anything for my birthday so I'm pleased Vera Bradley did something "special" for me. I do not EXPECT anything - it's a bonus!!ReplyDelete
I have lost my January birthday code. Does anyone have one they can email me? ThanksReplyDelete
Are microfiber items exempt from the birthday coupon? and/or all coupons?-any coupon I have tried to use never works when a Vera Vera item is in my cart, even if the coupon does not say the item is exempt. Has anyone else had this issue? Thanks!ReplyDelete
