Every time Ulta Beauty has a 5x points on anything offer in 2018, I will update this article. Scroll down to see when we received these offers in 2017 (to predict when the next one will arrive in 2018). This is the first time in 2018 we saw a blanket offer for all products, but there have been plenty of 5x points targeted offers on specific products. I track those as well. We have already had a 10x points offer (on select products this year), will see another one next month, and will likely see another one in November. We have also seen multiple 2x, 3x, and 4x points offers this year and will see more of those as well.
If you are having issues with email, check the Rewards section in your Account. There are times when offers you did not receive emails on are sitting in your account waiting for activation. While some offers are targeted, this one is usually available to all members who meet the lowest level stated on the offer. The 5x points on anything offer is almost always exclusive to Platinum and Diamond Members, but I will always list the levels below. There are times when Platinum and Diamond members have reported not receiving the offer that states it is a perk of the level. Customer service has declined the offer for many who call in and ask for it. It cannot be a true Platinum or Diamond Perk if it is not granted to all members of that level, so I am sorry if you meet the requirement but do not have the offer. You will not get the point multiplier unless you received the offer. Offers that are available for everyone still need activation (through email, the main Ulta page, or your account section).
My goal with tracking offers is to better predict trends, as many retailers including Ulta repeat offers around the same time each year. It can also help shoppers see what they’re getting and what they’re being excluded from.
The first offer for 5x points on anything in 2018 is for Platinum and Diamond members went out on 07/22/18. It is valid through 07/29/18.
I took a blogging break in 2017, but I noticed 5x points offers (both were Platinum Perks) from 07/23/17 through 07/29/17 and 09/07/17 through 09/10/17. Of course, all items excluded from the 10x Points event on 08/21/18 got 5x points as well. That means this 5x points offer is right on schedule based on last year. It also means we can expect this offer to repeat on the 21st of July next year, assuming there are no schedule changes.
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 offersbefore placing an online order because there are always general or brand specific offersthat 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.
