See the 2020 Ulta Diamond Perks article.
Every time I see a new Diamond Perk in 2019, I will update this article. These are special offers that are only available for Diamond members. A Diamond member spends at least $1200 a year to maintain status. Any offer open to Platinum and Diamond members is only mentioned in the Platinum Perks article. That is the best way to see the differences between the tiers. This is a tracking article, so we can look at past offers to predict future ones. I do not remove old offers, so look at the offer dates before trying any. They get posted in reverse chronological order, so only the ones on top are ever recent. If you are a Platinum or Diamond member who did not receive emails on these promotions, you might have email issues. Contact Ulta if this problem persists. Diamond Beauty Bag offers get tracked separately, but I do briefly mention them below.
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 Diamond Perks line up with others on the calendar. You can also visit my Ulta retailer page to see active and upcoming offers of all types.
Ulta only advertises three bonuses over the Platinum tier.
- An extra 0.25 per dollar spent
- free shipping with a $25 purchase instead of $50
- free $25 rewards card.
With this article, I want to show all the benefits of the Ulta Diamond program, not just the advertised ones.

UltaMate Rewards January Newsletter
There were no offers in the 01/07/19 email. It was only a recap of my 2018 rewards activity. I spent less in 2018 than I did in 2017, so I earned and redeemed less points.
I will update the link with my 2019 gift after I claim it. For now, I linked the welcome gift I received when I qualified in 2018. It changes throughout the year, so those who receive it now will receive something different from what I received (thank goodness). The $25 rewards card promised with this level comes inside the welcome gift box.

I'm Kimberly. Shopping is always more fun when I've found the best deal available, so I am always on the hunt. My father instilled that in me, and I love that I carry a piece of him. Sometimes, my husband and sons (12 and 7) let me shop for them, too. They do not use as many beauty products as I do. We can all benefit from nice products, even though their routine ends with moisturizer. That is when I can convince my 12-year-old to apply it.
