If you have to buy it, get the best deal!
Ulta releases so many 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 covers affiliate offers, which are only advertised by affiliates. Whenever Ulta emails me an offer in advance, it is difficult to know if it is an affiliate exclusive or a general offer. I typically list advance offers in the general offers article and move them over to this affiliate exclusive article once I confirm they are not searchable on the website.
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 this Ulta Beauty Affiliate 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.
I received this offer in an email from Ulta on 12/28/18. When the offer went live on 01/03/19, it was not listed on the site. That makes it an affiliate exclusive.
