Free Ulta Beauty Birthday Gift 2019 By Month: September NARS, and October Living proof.

The September 2019 Ulta Beauty birthday gift is in. We also know the Ulta Beauty 2019 birthday gift for October. Each UltaMate Rewards member gets two or three 2019 Ulta Birthday Gifts based on rewards tier. This is the first year where gifts get released by birth month. Before this, Ulta birthday gifts were released by quarter or a year at a time. A lot of retailers other than Ulta offer birthday gifts, so check my list before your big day. With 2019 Ulta birthday gifts getting announced by birth month, it is highly unlikely many spoilers will come out. I will spoil them as quickly as I can. If you have not joined the UltaMate Rewards Program, sign up before your birthday. A birthday gift is still a present, so I suggest grabbing them as long as a trip to the store is convenient. As someone with a Quarter One birthday, I am pretty familiar with less than stellar Ulta Beauty Birthday Gifts.

2019 Ulta Beauty Event Calendar

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 these Ulta Beauty Birthday Gifts line up with others on the calendar. You can also visit my Ulta retailer page to see active and upcoming offers of all types.

Birthday Bonus Points (Ulta Birthday Gift 1)

ulta 2019 birthday gift 2x points

One of the 2019 Ulta birthday gifts all UltaMate Rewards members get is 2x points on every purchase during their entire birth. Members must activate this offer from the email or the My Rewards section of the online account. Yes, this offer combines with other multipliers. I have an advanced breakdown of Earning and Redeeming points for those who want more details on how the 2019 Ulta Beauty Birthday points multiply with other offers. It is not as simple as adding them together, because base points, the 0.25x Platinum bonus, and the 0.50x Diamond bonus never multiply. The easiest way to look at this is you get a bonus birthday point per dollar spent for your birthday because the first point is something you’d get anyway.

Platinum and Diamond Bonus (Ulta Birthday Gift 2)

Platinum and Diamond UltaMate Rewards members receive a unique $10 coupon on the first day of their birth month and it is valid through the end of the month. It includes everything but gift cards, services in the salon, the Benefit Brow Bar, Chanel, Dyson, and Kiehls. This is on par with the 20% off prestige coupon, although this usually has had less exclusions in the past. There is no purchase minimum for the coupon. This coupon is valid only once in-store or online. If you have questions about any Ulta Coupon, I go over all types. You will not pay anything in-store if your purchase is $10 or less. A free shipping minimum (usually $50 but it does lower at times to $35 or even $25) applies to online purchases. Diamond members have a $25 free shipping minimum. Shopping in store is the only way to redeem the standard and Platinum gifts at the same time.

The 2019 Ulta Birthday Gift Coupon

How do you get a birthday gift at Ulta? The best birthday surprises arrive on time! Sign up for an UltaMate Rewards account before your birthday (if possible). Make your first purchase on your account to activate it before the first day of your birth month. Any purchase history on an account should trigger a birthday offer. My son’s last purchase was almost a year ago (we purchase most products on my account), but he still received his offer. There is no purchase required to redeem the birthday gift, but it must be picked up in store. It cannot be added online, so the product links (I will add each link once I know the products) are to view what you will receive if you pick it up in person. Adding the item from the link will not deduct the cost.

Ulta emails a coupon (required for redemption) on the first day of your birth month and it is valid through the end of the month. The coupon will list the gift you are eligible for. If your birthday falls on the cusp of another gift, it is up to staff members at the store whether they will allow a substitute. Many will require you to accept what your coupon offers if the item is in stock.

If you do not receive a coupon on the first day of your birth month, check your spam and junk folders, then contact Ulta. The most common reason for missing the coupon is an email issue, but it is also possible you did not trigger the offer. Ulta reps can send you an email (as long as your birthday was recent) if you contact them. They may ask you to make a purchase before they will send the offer (if you have never made one or it has been too long since your last purchase).

This is a unique coupon that will only work once. It lists your member number and a code to redeem the product. Employees scan both to complete the transaction. Once it is redeemed (by you or someone else if you give yours away), you will see the redemption for the gift in your account history.

    Wow, so very underwhelmed by the first quarter gifts the past few years. Ulta keeps making my preference for Sephora stronger. It is free, so I do appreciate that, and if I won’t use it I gift it, which is what I did last year and will this year because those colors will look horrible on my warm/yellow skin tone. I would not be so blah about a free gift if everyone got the same birthday gift or at least ones that were comparable in price and quality. But other quarters are getting vastly superior birthday gifts and that is not cool. Ulta brand is often cheap.

    I wonder if it is even worth trying to complain to Ulta’s customer service? I am sure people have before and yet we get another Ulta brand free birthday gift while other quarters will probably get something of better quality. I guess I will continue to chose Sephora over Ulta most of the time, that is probably the best way to show my displeasure.


  2. notcreative Post author

    We really deserve a quarter one win since we are the only quarter without one. The gifts changing each quarter had not fared well for us. This was a huge letdown for me as well. I have give and take with Ulta versus Sephora, because I learned yesterday that there is no tangible Rouge Welcome gift anymore. Not happy about that.

    The customer service reps cannot do anything about the gift, so I doubt they can help. Whoever is in charge of selecting the gifts clearly does not have a quarter 1 birthday. It is the worst gift almost every year.


  3. Stephanie

    This is bullshit! Every year 1st quarter gets the cheap Ulta brand gift, while other quarters get Nars, Urban Decay, and Lancôme! So unfair! I don’t use store brand makeup! Every year I call to complain, but they don’t care!! So pissed right now.


  4. notcreative Post author

    This is the third year out of the 5 with gifts separated by quarter that we got the Ulta branded gift. I just gave away the one from 2015 (after not touching it since 2015), and the one from 2018 gave me a whitehead by my lip. My expectations for this one are very low.


  5. Jennie

    They shouldn’t do it by quarter. They should let you pick like Sephora does. This year , the Sephora bday freebie options are pretty good. But what do you mean about no more rouge welcome gift?


  6. notcreative Post author

    Yes, if they have to separate the gifts, picking the one we want would be nice. I linked the Sephora article in the other response. The Rouge welcome gifts were announced. None of them are tangible. They are all services.


  7. Jean

    I don’t think it’s fair, that some months get nicer gifts then others. February Birthday gift is worth a lot less this year, I know it’s nice to get anything free, but as a Diamond member who spends a lot, Doesn’t seem right. It would be nice to get to choose between a few different items.


  8. notcreative Post author

    I agree. Separating the gifts by month was a huge gamble. The only conciliation I can offer is the February gift is still a spoiler. Ulta has yet to make the official announcement. Until the official announcement comes out, Ulta can still change it. There is also a chance the spoiler is wrong. We will know for sure in a little over a week (or sooner if the Ulta announcement comes out earlier).


  9. Shannon Kennedy

    February b-day here and every year our gift is lame. If the spoiler is true it is even worse than the past 2 years. $6.99 value when both Jan & March are better than last year? Why do you hate February b-days Ulta? Why not mix it up or give a few choices like Sephora does?


  10. notcreative Post author

    I think offering choices is a good idea for multiple reasons, including the stark difference in value based on birth month. My son even asked me what I wanted him to do with eyeshadow. He would have used a skincare item though.


  11. Consuela

    My Birthday is Jan. 29th but with the terrible cold weather where I live I waited two days, the 31rst, to redeem my Ulta Birthday gift. Though not excited I was expecting to receive the eyeshadow duo. I was shocked when handed a 0.06 oz. ‘deluxe sample’ size Lancome Monsieur Big mascara. Just thought I’d share.


  12. notcreative Post author

    That was the Quarter 4 gift from 2018. Your Ulta either ran out of the January gift and offered some leftover stock from last year or has some in for another reason, but I am glad you are happy about your substitution. That is my least favorite Lancome mascara. Although, my least favorite mascara in a brand with amazing mascaras is still better than some.


  13. lcm747

    I cannot believe they stopped giving out a Rouge gift. Not even that red brush?! I really do wonder what the thought process is behind that. One would think they would want to try to make the Rouge members happy since there is so much competition with Ulta


  14. Naomi

    For anyone born in April, the Tarte tarteist lip paint is full sized and available in 3 shades: Pillow Talk, Get It and Homeslice.


  15. Elisse

    I have a July birthday so I’m wondering what my choice will be. I’m not overly optimistic because I’ve been underwhelmed in the past. Although I think last year July was a NYX palette and that one was really nice compared to what I was expecting. It’s really bad business IMO to have such differing gift values month to month. One month gets low quality Ulta eyeshadow (I’ve tried to be objective about the Ulta brand but literally every brand product I’ve tried has been awful) while another month gets a super high quality Lancome face mask! Unreal! I simply don’t understand what’s the thinking behind offering such different choices. Ideally, they should offer the same 2, 3 or 4 options to everyone and let them choose the way Sephora does. Speaking of Sephora, I’m kind of underwhelmed this year’s choices. Disappointing since the previous year’s gifts have been incredible. The Bite Beauty birthday gift option they offered last year (or year before) got them my money going forward because I LOVED both Bite Beauty lippies in the birthday gift. I prefer makeup birthday gifts. I feel like it’s hard to decide if you love a skincare item from a small sample size but with makeup you know immediately if you like it or not. Therefore, I’m still undecided if I’ll choose Kat Von D or Drunk Elephant from Sephora this year (I’ve received the KVD liner a gazillion times during my last few years getting the Play! box so I’m not sure I want ANOTHER one). As for what the July Ulta gift might be….we shall see. I wish my birthday was 3 days earlier so I could choose the June Lancome mask haha!


  16. notcreative Post author

    I agree with pretty much everything you said. I love Genifique, so I’ve wanted to try that sheet mask for some time. It would have been nice to get that instead. It will probably be a few more weeks before we know the July gift. They tend to release two to three months at a time, but the new cycle does not come out until just before the new month starts.


  17. Emerald

    Whoa, ladies! Did you see July is a deluxe Lancome mascara? Big news is August is the Benefit Hoola Bronzer! August babies are luckies!

    The details are in their next sales catalogue. I can send you a pic if you like, just don’t know how to do it. Do you have an email?


  19. Jodi

    July’s gift is a deluxe mascara. Who doesn’t have a million of them? With only 2 points per dollar and a mini mascara, it’s not worth my time.


  20. notcreative Post author

    I am not the biggest fan of that particular mascara, but I know a lot of people love it. If you have not tried it yet and a trip to the store is not inconvenient, you could pick it up. Otherwise, I get what you mean. Mascara is something I am always fully stocked on.


  21. Glenda

    I have a January birthday and twice I have been lucky enough to be allowed to select the free gift from the previous month. I didn’t want the Ulta eye shadow and managed to get the Lancome mascara instead. The staff seemed well aware that the eye shadow was a disappointing “gift.” In 2017 I didn’t want the Benefit POREfessional face primer (at the time I was getting free samples of that with nearly every Ulta order) and got the Urban Decay Midnight Cowboy Eyeshadow–I was thrilled!
