If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
Ulta has sent targeted dollar off coupons to select customers for as long as I can remember. Targeted codes are almost always unique, so they can only be used one time. The general codes, which are available almost all year, are multi-use. In 2017, I noticed the efforts really stepped up because I received a lot more than I had in the past. Every time I receive an offer in 2018, I will update this article. These are targeted offers, so others may receive offers I do not. My goal with this article is to track possible future offers and alert others to deals. Sometimes these coupons hide in emails, so you may have one of these and not even know it. If you did not receive the offer I received, just keep an eye out. You may get one in the future that I don’t get.

I will be listing all dollar off coupons received in 2018 in reverse chronological order here. For the types of coupon available, scroll down. These are all unique codes unless otherwise specified. I will only list my unique code below if I decide I will not use it. In that case, it will only work for the first person who uses it. Targeted Percentage Off coupons and 20% off Prestige coupons get tracked in different articles.
-$20 off a $75 bareMinerals purchase. Sent 01/27/18. Expires 02/03/18. I have purchased bareMinerals from Ulta before (most recently this month, but I did not write an article).
-$5 off a $10 purchase. Works on everything except items excluded from prestige coupons. Sent 01/02/18. Expires 01/06/18.
The most common dollar off coupon Ulta sends is for specific brands. This is usually $5 off with a $20 brand purchase, $10 or $15 off with a $50 brand purchase, or $15 off with a $75 purchase. They are usually unique coupon codes, but there are times when they are general. When they are general, you can give the code to multiple friends. Targeted offers can only be used once, by you or someone you gift the code to.
I received $5 off a $20 NYX purchase on 07/23/17. It was valid through 07/29/17.
This $15 off a $75 Philosophy purchase came on 06/16/17. There was no expiration date listed in the email. It is a general code, so anyone could have used that.
This $15 off a $50 bareMinerals purchase came 11/12/17. It expired 11/25/17.
A new code that popped up last year was for $5 off a $10 purchase. The fine print on this one excludes some prestige brands but not all, so this works toward more brands than the general ones. It should work with any brand the 20% off prestige coupons. I received the one above on 02/09/17. It was valid through 02/14/17. This year, I received it today. I am not attaching the unique code because I may redeem it myself.
If it has been a while since you’ve shopped Ulta, you can expect to receive coupons for $15 off a $50 purchase. These coupons work toward anything a prestige coupon works on.
There was a time when I never received these, because I shop at Ulta too often. Then, I changed the email address on my account. Now, I receive these often at my old email address. My old email address no longer has an account tied to it, so while it makes no sense, I welcome the coupons. They work on any account so I am able to use them even though the email address they send them to is not tied to an account. My email address was not updated until January 2017, so it is possible there were more waves in 2017. I received these offers at my old account email address on 05/14/17, 06/04/17, 08/27/17, 10/12/17, and 12/08/17. They were valid through 05/20/17, 06/10/17, 09/02/17, 10/14/17, and 12/24/17 respectively.
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.
