Is it time for an Ulta Beauty Break? Every time Ulta releases a Beauty Break in 2019, I will update this article. Ulta released 61 Beauty Breaks in 2018. View that article to see when they released or what they were if you are trying to predict the next release for a similar period in 2019. That brought us to an average of 1.17 a week. I do not know what the Beauty Breaks are in advance, so this article is only for tracking. Subscribe to Ulta emails to make sure you get notified directly. Beauty Breaks get posted in reverse chronological order. Look at the date and time before trying it, because it will not work if the offer expired. Add the Beauty Break to your cart along with a qualifying purchase, and the cost should drop to zero. Popular Beauty Breaks are known to run out of inventory before the window expires.
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 Breaks line up with others on the calendar. You can also visit my Ulta retailer page to see active and upcoming offers of all types.
What is a Beauty Break? It is a GWP with a short return window. Most Beauty Breaks are only available for 4-6 hours. Each Beauty Break offers a gift with a specified minimum purchase. While most Beauty Break offers get emailed, I have caught a few that were not. This means I can miss some (and so can you). The usual schedule is Wednesday morning from 8am-12pm. In 2018, there were only 10 Wednesday mornings without a beauty break. We got 19 on other days with Monday taking the spot for the most common shift.
I will update this number every time I see a Beauty Break on any day other than Wednesday.
