I officially crossed over to Diamond status on June 4th, 2018, so all Diamond rewards after that date are listed below. Prior to that, I only listed the ones received in Platinum emails telling me what I could have received if I was Diamond. Any offer from January 16th through June 4th where only Diamond members got notified is not below. Had Ulta counted my 2017 spend toward the new status, I would have started as Diamond instead of waiting an extra five months. For complete details on the Diamond tier, refer to my Diamond Benefits article. Diamond Beauty Bag offers are tracked separately.
This article will list all Diamond Perks I am aware of for 2018. These are perks that are only available to Diamond members. If you are a Diamond member, these offers are available for you whether you received the email or not. Platinum Perks get tracked separately and even though they are available to all Diamond members, I only list the perk in the article for the lowest level that qualifies for the offer. All other articles, and I have a lot of articles tracking Ulta offers, are available for all UltaMate members. My goal is to track offers and trends. Many offers repeat around the same time each year, and this is the first year to see what this level brings. Diamond Perks are still new so I cannot state with any level of certainty what to expect. As I learn more, I will edit this article.
Ulta only advertises three bonuses over the Platinum tier, which is an extra 0.25 per dollar spent, free shipping with a $25 purchase instead of $50, and a free $25 rewards card. All of the bonuses in this article show that Ulta is doing more to differentiate between its tiers. They are underpromising and overdelivering, which is the best way to run a business.

This is the first time Ulta has ever offered 4x points so it is nice to see it was reserved for the top tier. For those keeping track, I am still a ways off from reaching the top tier.

Ulta should have included our totals from last year though. It will take a while before I reach $1200 this year. Valid online only on 02/05/18.
