If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
A new promotion for 3x points for UltaMate Rewards members, 4x points for Platinum members, and 5x points for Diamond members popped up today. Since this promotion has landed so late in 2018, I am going to place 2019 offers of the same type in this article and wait until 2020 to start the new one. Whenever a new promotion gets released, it is hard to say if it will repeat. We need a year of tracking at a minimum to start predicting patterns. Ulta also has 3x points UltaMate and 5x points Platinum and Diamond, which is similar. That offer existed before 2018 only it lumped Diamond and Platinum together for the first time this year. The most common offer is 2x Points UltaMate, 3x Points Platinum, and 4x Points Diamond, so this offer gives each tier an extra point per dollar.
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 3x, 4x, 5x points offers line up with others on the calendar. You can also visit my Ulta retailer page to see active and upcoming offers of all types.
The only offer so far has been an in-store, general offer. I will note whenever there is a change.
This is an in-store only offer, but that does not mean it will always stay that way if it pops up again in the future. You should have received this offer in your email today. For those of you who have trouble receiving emails, and I have been there with Ulta, I have linked the in-store coupon you need. Of course, I chopped it up to remove my private account information, but everything you need is below.
This is a single-use offer. You can use it anytime between now (12/06/18) and December 24th. It should combine with any coupon, so I would suggest shopping in-store (if you have not yet redeemed your 20% off prestige coupon, which is another a one-time offer valid through the 24th) to get one massive deal. Present the associate with the first part of this picture that shows which multiplier you get based on your member level.
Once the associate scans your membership card (or pulls up your account), have the associate scan this bar code to activate your point multiplier. Both steps are necessary to get the bonus points, so do not forget. This is a general code. Historically general codes will work multiple times until they expire. As I have no beauty budget left to shop any time soon, I will not test trying to redeem it more than once. If anyone else tests it, please report back on how it goes.
*This offer appeared again in the 12/12/18 Ulta Beauty email.
