If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
Ulta Bonus Points is a promotion that assigns a flat number of points with a specified purchase. These are targeted offers, so some accounts will not receive them at all. If you do not receive an email on this promotion, remember to check My Bonus Offers inside My Rewards. It is a good idea to check there anytime you see someone receive an offer you did not. There is always a chance your email had trouble coming through. For those who receive these bonus offer promotions, the amounts will always vary.
Some people get less bonus points, but they have a smaller buy-in. Others may get more bonus points, but they have a higher buy-in. Occasionally, there are people who get less bonus points for the same buy-in, but this is less common. The general rule is people get different offers based on account history. I’m guessing people who spend more throughout the year get the higher buy-ins with better bonus offers, but these offers are not an exact science. Free shipping is also reduced to $35, so those with a buy-in under $50 can still get free shipping with their bonus points. I did see a buy-in for $30, so they should add an extra $5 for free shipping (considering shipping costs $5.95).
These bonus point offers are available from 10/30/16 through 11/05/16. It says it takes 5 minutes for offers to activate. Points get awarded when the order ships and will generally look at available multipliers then. In other words, you could even activate this offer shortly after placing an order (as long as it is the same business day), and you should get it once the points officially post to your account.
There is also a Beauty Bag coming with a $25 purchase on 11/03/16. This bag is available while supplies last or through 11/05/16.
The bag includes:
-0.35oz StriVectin Advanced Intensive Concentrate
-0.1oz BareSkin Sheer Sun Serum Bronzer
-0.1oz Benefit Fakeup in Shade 02 Medium
-0.25oz Vitabath Green Tea & Sage Body Wash
-0.25oz Not Your Mother’s Déjà Vu ‘Do Style Extending Hair Primer
-1.69oz NKD SKN Pre-Shower Tan
-0.05oz Buxom Lip Polish in Katie
-0.9oz Clarins Moisture Body Lotion
-0.5oz Michael Kors Wonderlust Eau de Parfum
-0.06oz L’Oréal Lumi Cushion Foundation in Nude Beige
-0.5oz Clinique Face Scrub for Men
-1 count ULTA Bronze Glow Sunless Tan Body Towelette
The next Beauty Break should release on the second, so I would consider the items in that and compare them to this before deciding which is a better GWP for you.
-There is a general GWP available (stock can run out anytime), which is a 1.7oz Joico K-Pak Color Therapy Luster Lock with any purchase. Expires 11/05/16.
If you have questions about any Ulta Coupon, I go over all types. Targeted Offers are exclusive to UltaMate Members, so I do recommend joining. New members get $10 of their first purchase with a referral. Remember to check all Ulta offers before placing an online order, because there are always general or brand specific offers that are not targeted. Deal stacking is not only allowed, it’s encouraged. Product reviews do not always make it into the haul article, but you can always type the product into the search bar to see if I’ve mentioned it or reviewed it elsewhere. See all Ulta articles.
