See the Ulta Birthday Gifts 2020 article
Ulta Beauty Birthday Gifts change each month in 2019. Every UltaMate Rewards member with purchase history gets 2-3 Ulta birthday presents based on level. Prior to 2015, there was one Ulta birthday gift all year. From 2015 through 2018, Ulta birthday gifts were batched by Quarter. A lot of retailers other than Ulta offer birthday gifts, so check my list before your big day. The official announcement for the first eight Ulta Birthday gifts are out. With Ulta birthday gifts getting announced by birth month, it is highly unlikely many will get spoiled at once. I will spoil them as quickly as I can. If you have not joined the UltaMate Rewards Program, join before your birthday. See my 2019 Ulta birthday gift review for the Ulta Beauty Collection shadows, the Ulta birthday gift review for the NYX Liquid Lipstick, and the Ulta birthday gift review for It Cosmetics.
All 2019 Ulta Beauty Major Promotions
I have one timeline where I list all major: deals, coupons, GWP, Sales, and Events. Those who want to see an overall idea of what to expect this year should stop by. See where these Ulta Beauty birthday gifts line up with other offers. You can also visit my Ulta retailer page to see active and upcoming offers of all types.
Ulta Birthday Bonus Points
One of the 2019 Ulta birthday presents all UltaMate Rewards members get is 2x points on every purchase during their entire birth. Members must activate this offer from the email or the My Rewards section of the online account. Yes, this offer combines with other multipliers. I have an advanced breakdown of Earning and Redeeming points for those who want more details on how the 2019 Ulta Beauty Birthday points multiply with other offers. It is not as simple as adding them together, because base points, the 0.25x Platinum bonus, and the 0.50x Diamond bonus never multiply. The easiest way to look at this is you get a bonus birthday point per dollar spent for your birthday because the first point is something you’d get anyway.
Platinum and Diamond Bonus
Platinum and Diamond UltaMate Rewards members receive a unique $10 coupon on the first day of their birth month and it is valid through the end of the month. It includes everything but gift cards, services in the salon, the Benefit Brow Bar, Chanel, Dyson, and Kiehls. This is on par with the 20% off prestige coupon, although this usually has had less exclusions in the past. There is no purchase minimum for the coupon. This coupon is valid only once in-store or online. If you have questions about any Ulta Coupon, I go over all types. You will not pay anything in-store if your purchase is $10 or less. A free shipping minimum (usually $50 but it does lower at times to $35 or even $25) applies to online purchases. Diamond members have a $25 free shipping minimum. Shopping in store is the only way to redeem the standard and Platinum gifts at the same time.
The 2019 Ulta Birthday Gift Coupon
How do you get a birthday gift at Ulta? As long as you have purchase history on your account, you should trigger a birthday offer. My son’s last purchase was almost a year ago (we purchase most products on my account), but he still received his offer. There is no purchase required to redeem the birthday gift, but it must be picked up in store. It cannot be added online, so the product links (I will add each link once I know the products) are to view what you will receive if you pick it up in person. Adding the item from the link will not deduct the cost.
Ulta emails a coupon (required for redemption) on the first day of your birth month and it is valid through the end of the month. The coupon will list the gift you are eligible for. If your birthday falls on the cusp of another gift, it is up to staff members at the store whether they will allow a substitute. Many will require you to accept what your coupon offers if the item is in stock.
If you do not receive a coupon on the first day of your birth month, check your spam and junk folders, then contact Ulta. The most common reason for missing the coupon is an email issue, but it is also possible you did not trigger the offer. Ulta reps can send you an email (as long as your birthday was recent) if you contact them. They may ask you to make a purchase before they will send the offer (if you have never made one or it has been too long since your last purchase).
This is a unique coupon that will only work once. It lists your member number and a code to redeem the product. Employees scan both to complete the transaction. Once it is redeemed (by you or someone else if you give yours away), you will see the redemption for the gift in your account history.

Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift 2020
I am hoping Ulta 2020 Birthday Gifts have a new format, because I see inequity in the different gifts by month. Once I get wind of the gift/format, I will start the article for next year.
2019 Ulta Birthday Gift
These are coming by month in 2019, so we should have 12 by the time the year is over.
Ulta Birthday Gift January 2019
Your January 2019 Ulta Beauty birthday gift has a total value of $13.95. Compare this to the $12 birthday gift from 2018, which I reviewed. It is an Ulta Beauty Collection Perfect Pair Eyeshadow Set. These are nearly full-size. Petite is 0.057oz ($7.23) and Beauty Junkie is 0.053oz ($6.72).
Ulta Birthday Gift February 2019
Your February 2019 Ulta Beauty birthday gift has a total value of $7. Compare this to the $12 birthday gift from 2018, which I reviewed. It is a full-size 0.13oz NYX Lip Lingerie Liquid Lipstick Lipli20 in French Maid.
Ulta Birthday Gift March 2019
Your March 2019 Ulta Beauty birthday gift has a total value of $16. Compare this to the $12 birthday gift from 2018, which I reviewed. You get a 0.5oz IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream Transforming Moisturizing Super Cream.
Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift April 2019
Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift May 2019
Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift June 2019
Your June 2019 Ulta Beauty birthday gift has a total value of $15. I’ve wanted one of these forever but could not bring myself to spend $15 on a single sheet mask. June recipients are so lucky, and this is my new pick for best gift (so far). For those born outside of June, it is a Hot Buy in the upcoming Spring 2019 21 Days of Beauty. This Ulta birthday gift is full-sized. It is a Lancome Advanced Génifique Hydrogel Melting Sheet Mask.
Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift July 2019

Your July 2019 Ulta Beauty birthday gift is worth $12. The gift is a deluxe sample. This gift made an appearance in 2017 and again in 2018, so it is a frequent repeat. It is a 0.13oz Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara.
Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift August 2019
Your August 2019 Ulta Beauty birthday gift is worth $16. The gift is the mini size. This is a new birthday gift for Ulta, but it is a cult classic. It is a 0.14oz Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Matte Bronzing Powder.
Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift September 2019
Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift October 2019
Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift December 2019
2018 Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift
These came by quarter, so we only had 4 gifts in 2018.
Ulta Birthday Gift Quarter One (January, February, and March)
People who picked up their gift early in the First Quarter could select the Fourth Quarter Gift from 2017 if it was still available at their store. That was a 0.17oz It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara. Ulta sells it in this size for $12.
Ulta Birthday Gift Quarter Two (April, May, and June)
Your Second Quarter Ulta birthday gift is worth $22.50. It is a 0.12oz NARS Orgasm Blush. Ulta does not sell the mini size, but it is 75% of the full-size. In a year where all the other quarters get $12 gifts, I’d say this quarter is the clear winner (assuming you are one of the few beauty lovers left who does not already own this shade).
Ulta Birthday Gift Quarter Three (July, August, and September)
Your Third Quarter Ulta birthday gift is worth $12. It is a 0.17oz It Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara. This was the Fourth Quarter gift from 2017 and some who were born at the beginning of the First Quarter were able to claim this in 2018.
Ulta Birthday Gift Quarter Four (October, November, and December)

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.
