If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
The Winter 2018/2019 Jumbo Love Event (the Liter Sale) starts on Christmas Day, December 25th. It has started on Christmas Day for years. What I did not expect was the link did not get updated until the clock struck midnight in the Central time zone. I refreshed from 11:59pm to 12am and everything was finally live. This event always ends on a Saturday and runs for at least four weeks (Ulta advertises this as 5 weeks, but the fifth week is never full). It runs from Tuesday, December 25th, 2018 through Saturday, January 26th, 2019. Expect it to repeat in July, because this is a semi-annual event.
With this twice a year event, you get the lowest prices of the season on jumbo sizes of shampoo and conditioner. Unlike the Gorgeous Hair Event, which starts in May and then again in October, this event does not have a daily steal format. Most deals are available from day one of the sale and stay available until inventory runs out or the event ends, whichever comes first. Because of this, the online link for the sale is not as advanced as it is for other events. It is usually easier to view the deals from a catalog.
I have one timeline where I list all major: deals, coupons, GWP, Sales, promotions, and Events. Those who want to see an overall idea of what to expect this year should stop by. See where the Ulta Beauty Jumbo Love Event (Liter Sale) lines up with others on the calendar. You can also visit my Ulta retailer page to see active and upcoming offers of all types.
You can purchase a pump for $1 ($3 value) with any jumbo purchase while supplies last. A pop up in the checkout screen will remind you to add it online. If the agent does not offer this deal in person, remember to ask for it.
Many professional haircare liters are on sale. Most liters have a set price for the event.
