I track all Ulta offers, and this article will cover all Platinum Perk offers for 2017. As soon as I see them, I will update this article with new offers. It could be a large post by the end of the year depending on how generous Ulta is with Platinum Perk offers. These are special offers that are only available for Platinum members to purchase. It is one of the many perks of being a Platinum member with Ulta. My goal with tracking offers is to better predict trends, as many retailers including Ulta repeat offers around the same time each year. This means I can look at the 2017 offers to get an idea of when 2018 offers may arrive.
By having them all listed in one place, it is also easier to see a pattern (if there is one) and helps predict when the next 2017 offer is coming. Platinum Perks are available to all Platinum members whether you received the email or not. This is not a targeted offer and will work for any Platinum signed into his/her account. If you are a Platinum member who do not receive an email on this promotion, you are probably having issues receiving emails. Contact Ulta to reset your emails. I had to do that once, and my emails returned within a few days. Hopefully, you have the same quick turnaround I received.
Platinum perks are usually around 50% off, so these are similar to daily steals offered during major promotions. They can pop up any time during the year and like daily steals, they are usually only available for one day. If you purchase a Platinum Perk during a major promotion, like Love Your Skin, 21 Days of Beauty, or the Gorgeous Hair Event, they are usually available with free shipping. Any Platinum Perk purchased outside of a major promotion is subject to the free shipping minimum (which is usually $50 but does lower to $35 at times). The good news is you can typically load your cart with multiples of the perk and save even more.
The Platinum Perk (available 01/01/17 only) is 50% off tarte Amazonian Clay Blushes. If the shipping minimum was less than $50, I would have picked up a couple. This is my second favorite blush (after Laura Geller Baked), because they (tied with Laura Geller) last longer on my dry cheeks than any other formula I’ve tried. As I already love these, I could not find 4 colors I love enough to get over the free shipping minimum. I never suggest paying for shipping (unless the retailer has no free shipping options and it is the only place that carries the item you want).
The Platinum perk (available 01/13/17) is Philosophy Foundation options for $24 (regularly $39-$40). This is a steal (for Platinum members) in the Love Your Skin Event. As with all steals in that event for Platinum members, it is available with free shipping.
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.
