I track all Ulta offers, and this article will cover all 5x Points offers for specific brands, products, and services for 2017. There will be a separate article for 5x points on anything offers (and I will link it here after I see the first universal offer of 2017). As soon as I see specific 5x points offers, I will update this article. It could be a large post by the end of the year depending on how generous Ulta is. Most 5x points offers are targeted and must be activated. You can activate the offer directly from the email Ulta sends.
If you are having issues with email, check the Rewards section in your Account. There are times when offers you did not receive emails on are sitting in your account waiting for activation. Contact Ulta if you are an active shopper who got skipped for more than five offers in a row. This could signify a problem on your account. I’ve never been excluded from more than 3-4 in a row. Offers that are available for everyone still need activation (through email, the main Ulta page, or your account section). Unless otherwise specified, all offers below are targeted. You will not get the point multiplier unless you received the offer.
No one gets all the point multipliers, but to have a complete listing, I will note when I see offers I did not receive as well as offers I received. If I receive the offer, I will also include a picture from the email. My goal with tracking offers is to better predict trends, as many retailers including Ulta repeat offers around the same time each year. It can also help shoppers see what they’re getting and what they’re being excluded from. By having them all listed in one place, it is also easier to see a pattern (if there is one). The bigger point multipliers are easy to predict, and I can tell you with certainty that Ulta will host the 10x Points Event for Platinum members at the end of August.
As I’ve covered in my article detailing the Love Your Skin Event, there is an offer for 5x points on all services (hair, skin, and brows) throughout the event. It is available for everyone and valid from 01/08/17 through 01/28/17.
An offer for 5x points for Urban Decay went out 01/01/17. It is valid through 01/14/17. I did not receive this offer (and I have purchased a lot of Urban Decay from Ulta, many products in 2016).
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.
