If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
A lot of people are looking for details on the upcoming Jumbo Love Event (the Liter Sale), so I’ve decided to start the article a little earlier than I usually would. Let me start by saying no official information is available yet. I can tell you what to expect and when to expect it. Expect to see the lowest prices of the season on liters. Most of these liters will not see prices this low outside of this event, which starts every year in July and then again in December. This event has started on Christmas Day for years. It runs for at least four weeks and always has a Saturday end date. Ulta has not canceled or rescheduled any major events in a long time, so I am pretty confident the event will take place. The most likely schedule is from 12/25/18 through 01/25/19. As soon as I know more, I will update this.
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.
Like many Ulta events, a lot of the deals from past Jumbo Love events will repeat, so looking at the last event is a great place to start when trying to plan your purchases. Deals are even more likely to repeat from a corresponding season meaning the Winter 2017/2018 event might event be a better place to start.
What deals can you expect? Some professional haircare liters retail for as low as $12.99 and some expensive products will fall in the $29.99 a liter category with many in-between the two. Expensive brands that almost never go on sale (outside of using a 20% off prestige coupon, which is valid through the 24th) should get 15% to 20% off. A lot of brands will get GWP options to sweeten the deal. You might even see a GWP bag of haircare items (although this is more likely during a Gorgeous Hair Event than a Jumbo Love Event).
No worries for those trying to decide if they should use their 20% off prestige coupon or wait for the event to grab haircare. By the 24th, all the deals for this event should get announced. The only thing you will not know in advance is the GWP options. If the deal is the same now and after the event starts (that would be the case for something getting 20% off), you may want to wait for this event to see what GWP options you could score unless a GWP option you really like pops up sooner. You should know which option gives you the best deal before decision time. While you will see some styling products and tools on sale, you will not see as many as you would in a Gorgeous Hair Event. The buy 2, get 1 free on styling products should pop up.
I will continue to post offers I am aware of, so no worries if you happen upon this post after the offers above expire. 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.
