If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
I track all Ulta offers, and this article will cover all Platinum Perk offers for 2018. 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 and Diamond members to purchase. It is one of the many perks of being a Platinum or Diamond 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 2018 offers to get an idea of when 2019 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 2018 offer is coming. Platinum Perks are available to all Platinum and Diamond members whether you received the email or not. This is not a targeted offer and will work for any Platinum or Diamond member signed into his/her account. If you are a Platinum or Diamond 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.
Sign into your Platinum or Diamond Account before you add a Platinum Perk to your cart.
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 for Platinum members and $25 for Diamond members). The good news is you can typically load your cart with multiples of the perk and save even more.
Platinum Perks also include first access to select full-priced items. While that is a definite perk, it is not really a deal. I am not mentioning those items here, but I will occasionally mention them on my Ulta retailer page. Large GWP bags are available 3-4 times a year with a $125-$150 purchase.
02/05/18- There are a lot of offers today. The bag is while supplies last. All others are only valid today.
-Receive a free 1.7oz Matrix Biolage Raw Color Care Shampoo and Conditioner with any purchase.
-Receive a free Mini Flat Iron with a $79.95 Babyliss Pro purchase.
-Receive a full-size Maybelline Total Temptation Mascara in Blackest Black with any $20 makeup purchase.
-Receive an It Cosmetics Discover IT Kit with a $15 It Cosmetics purchase.

-Receive a 2-piece Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy gift with any $20 fragrance purchase.
02/03/18- Platinum members received a second 20% off prestige brands coupon code via email. It is only valid 02/03/18 and includes fragrance. This overlaps the first offer, but as you can see, it is a different code. It is a Platinum Perk, and I can confirm that regular UltaMate accounts did not receive a second code via email. That makes this the third unique code Platinum members could have received this round (for those who got 1 by mail and 2 by email). Considering regular members only received one code (emailed) and Platinum members received up to 3, this is a Platinum Perk. I am not using the code so I am posting it below for the first person to claim it.
01/23/18- Platinum members received a 20% off prestige brands coupon code via email and mail. This code is valid through 02/03/18. Both were labeled as a Platinum Perk. While UltaMate remembers received the emails as well (not attaching the email because it was not a real Platinum Perk), they did not receive a separate unique code in the mail.
01/19/18- Receive a free NYX Professional Makeup Worth The Hype Mascara with a $10 NYX purchase. Valid while supplies last.
There are multiple Platinum Perks available today, 01/01/18. The first is free shipping with a $35 minimum purchase. It was working earlier, but is not presently working. Hopefully, Ulta fixes this soon.
There is a Platinum GWP Perk. Receive a free Julep Cushion Complexion 5-in-1 Skin Perfector with any purchase. Expires 01/01/18. Add the gift and any product to your cart to remove the charge. I actually received one of these in my August Julep Maven Box, but I have not tried it yet. This freebie gave me a chance to pick up a different color to ensure a proper match.
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Lines Serum is $29 (usually $58). Expires 01/01/18.
A brand specific GWP is available. Receive a 4-piece gift with a $20 tarte purchase. Expires 01/01/18. Add the gift and $20 in tarte products to your cart to remove the charge.

Another brand specific GWP is available. Receive full-size bareMinerals Gen Nude Matte Liquid Lip Colors in Cosmic and Fancy with a $25 bareMinerals purchase. Expires 01/01/18. Add both lipsticks individually and $25 in bareMinerals products to reduce the charge.
Yet another brand specific GWP is available. Receive an Eye Must Have Treat (3 piece gift) with a $25 Clinique purchase. Expires 01/01/18. Add the GWP and $25 in Clinique products to remove the charge.

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. 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.
