If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
Ulta releases so many free beauty bags during the year that I split up the 2019 beauty bag articles into General Beauty Bags (listed in the GWP section), Diamond Beauty Bags (available to Diamond members), Platinum Beauty Bags (available to Platinum and Diamond members), Beauty Breaks (4-6 hour offers), and Affiliate Beauty Bags (available to anyone who happens upon an affiliate post). There are also targeted GWP Coupons (I receive on my account and share). This article will cover the general offers. These beauty bags are gifts with a minimum purchase. Bags initially carry a charge for the GWP minimum. Add the bag and a qualifying purchase to your account while the offer is active, and the cost for the bag should reduce to zero. The gift with purchase minimum is based on the subtotal, so you should still qualify for the gift if your total dips below the minimum after a coupon gets applied.
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 bags line up with others on the calendar. You can also visit my Ulta retailer page to see active and upcoming offers of all types.
This is a tracking article, so we can look at past offers to predict future offers. I do not remove expired offers. If you add a bag before it is active (I sometimes post in advance) or after it expires, it will not work. Popular bags may run out of stock before the expiration date. Check the offer dates before attempting any. Those who add a future or expired offer that is in stock will see that nothing will get the charge for the bag to remove. Everything gets posted in reverse chronological order, so only those near the top are ever active. Bags are online only unless otherwise specified.

On 12/28/18, Ulta emailed an offer for a new bag scheduled to start January 3rd. I initially listed it here (as I do with most beauty bag offers before they release). After the 3rd rolled around and the bag was not searchable on the Ulta website, I moved it to the affiliate exclusive article.
There was a bag released at the end of 2018 scheduled to carry into 2019. It ran out of stock on 12/28/18, so it is only listed in the 2018 article.
