Ulta releases so many beauty bags during the year that I split up the articles into General offers (those available to anyone), Platinum offers (those available to Platinum and Diamond members), Beauty Breaks, and Affiliate offers (those available to anyone who happens upon an affiliate post). There is also an article for individual products available with any purchase. Affiliate offers are usually only advertised by affiliates so they are not searchable on the Ulta website. When offers get announced to affiliates in advance, it is difficult to know if it is an affiliate exclusive or a general offer Ulta is letting us know about early. Unless Ulta forbids me from listing an affiliate offer in advance (that happens sometimes), I will list them here as soon as I see them. Once they release, I will move them to the general article if they are searchable on the site. This means you may happen upon an offer that is not live. Check the valid dates before adding it to your cart. Those who add it before the period starts or after the period ends will not get the cost of their bag deducted.
These beauty bags are gifts with a minimum purchase. Although the shipping minimum goes off the final pre-tax total, the GWP minimum goes off the subtotal. That means if you find a coupon or discounted item that lowers the final total, it will also lower your GWP buy-in. Every bag has a charge for the purchase minimum so a bag with a $60 purchase minimum will post with a $60 charge. The total for the bag will drop to zero once you have a qualifying purchase loaded into the cart. If your cart should qualify but the total does not drop to zero, the offer expired or is not active yet. Ulta will give you the bag, but it will charge you the purchase minimum for the bag. This means a bag with a $60 purchase minimum will charge you $60 when the free offer is not active no matter what other items are in your cart. Any bag I redeem will include a link to the review next to the post.
There are a number of brand specific gifts, but this only covers beauty bag offers that are available with any Ulta.com purchase. All bags are available (for free) with the minimum purchase while supplies last or until the scheduled expiration date. If the bag runs out-of-stock before the scheduled expiration date, it is very uncommon for a re-stock or for Ulta to introduce a replacement offer, but it does happen. This article is for tracking. I will not remove expired offers, but I do post all active offers to my Ulta Deals Page.
This came through the affiliate account, but is not listed in the general GWP section.

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.
