Ulta Beauty Breaks September through October 2016

Let me start this article by stating I do not get advance notice on Beauty Breaks, so I do not want the title to look like click bait. Beauty Breaks are pop-up GWP offers. Most Beauty Breaks get released at 8am PST on Wednesdays. They usually run for 4-6 hours. I’ve decided to track Ulta Beauty Breaks and am linking a couple of months together to limit how many articles I dedicate to one specific type of deal. Every time I see a Beauty Break (I am on the West Coast, so please do not use my article as your source of notification), I will update this article until the end of October. If you have not already, subscribe to Ulta emails. There are times when better Beauty Breaks disappear before I even wake up. Surprise Beauty Breaks (those typically offered outside the normal Wednesday schedule) do not get emailed. They are only open to those lucky enough to stumble upon them. All surprise offers I’ve seen are below. My hope is this article (and future versions for later months) can help me predict: trends, upcoming offers, and more. At the very least, it can show me with certainty when a Beauty Break repeats.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.

  1. I like this Kimberly. I’m in the same boat as you being on the West Coast so I miss them fairly often. Great idea to track deals and try to predict upcoming promos!

  2. That’s the plan. I am able to predict other things I’ve tracked, so I am hoping I can predict when Beauty Breaks will pop up outside of the usual normal Wednesday schedule. Anything else would just be icing on the cake. I have ideas for similar Ulta series, but will roll them out at different times.

Deal or No Deal? What Do You Think?
