- Prices for some brands (Mario Badescu comes to mind) were cheaper on Luxola than it was at the local Sephora store. Now we would have to pay local Sephora store prices online. *face palm*
- Local economy - The local online Sephora store has rendered some people's "Sephora personal shopper" side business that you sometimes come across online moot...?
Under the previous system, you would only have to spend RM416.67 (give or take) to reach that goal, or move up to Black Card if you're a White Card holder. Which is not difficult, even for someone like me, who got the Black Card within a couple of years.
NOW - to reach the same 250 points, one would have to spend RM750 because it's RM3 = 1 point. What. the. FUCK. Luckily there's no deadline on how often you need to reach said 250 points, but still.
One might admit that it's great for people who live nowhere near a Sephora store, but at what cost?
