Ulta Beauty sometimes offers 15% off prestige coupons or even 10% off prestige coupons to UltaMate members in place of the 20% off prestige coupons sent to Platinum and Diamond members. Every time Ulta sends a 15% off prestige coupon, I will update this article. This had not happened since July of 2016, so it surprised me when I saw the 15% off prestige coupon for UltaMate members today. While the loss of the benefit is disappointing, it looks like Ulta is pushing to differentiate more between the tiers for these coupons as it once had. The good news (if it follows the pattern of past years) is there was only one or two rounds of the five 20% off prestige coupons Ulta sent in the past where the lower tier got a smaller percentage off. That means the 20% off coupons should return on a future round.
UltaMate members disappointed with the offer who were hoping to shop have three options. Use these 15% off coupons and try to cross over to Platinum for better offers in the future, ask a Platinum or Diamond member for their 20% off code (I already posted mine in the 20% off article days ago), or wait for the next offer (if you do not need your items soon).
These are unique, one-time use coupon codes that work on most prestige items. Coupon codes are always emailed, but there are times Ulta mails 15% off prestige coupons as well. If you receive one coupon in the mail and one in your email, they will always have different codes. There are times when Ulta emails a second unique code during a round of offers, but more often than not, Ulta keeps emailing you the same code until the event ends. Whenever an online code accompanies a store bar code, you can redeem in-store or online. Platinum and Diamond members usually get extra discount codes each year. Because 15% off prestige coupons are targeted, there are times when only select UltaMate members receive them.
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 2019 15% off prestige coupons line up with others on the calendar. You can also visit my Ulta retailer page to see active and upcoming offers of all types.
Each 15% off prestige coupon at Ulta will only work once, in-store or online. The bar code for the in-store discount is different from the online code, but using it one way will negate the coupon the other way. You fill the coupon code into the promo code field online. Only one coupon code works online, so this does not combine with any other offer that requires a promo code. This will work with select product coupons in-store, but it cannot be combined with another Ulta percentage or dollar off coupon. It works with manufacturers coupons from the direct brands, which can only get redeemed in-store. For more information about Ulta Coupons, refer to Everything You Need to know about Ulta Coupons.
Refer to your 15% off prestige coupon for exclusions. Select coupons have more exclusions than others. Regular exclusions for this coupon are: Chanel Fragrance, Beauty Steals®, Beauty Deals™, 5 for $5, 5 for $10, Hot Buys, Dyson, and clearance. Starting in 2018, some coupons included Salon Services (for new guests only), Dermalogica Skincare Services (with individual experience exclusions), Benefit Brow Bar Services. Fragrance used to get excluded from select coupons, but it has not been excluded from any offer since before 2017. Lancôme, Clinique, and Dermalogica were past exclusions, but have not been excluded from any recent offers. Hot new releases get excluded at times. Of all the coupons regularly offered, only the Platinum $10 Ulta Birthday Gift Coupon has less exclusions.
Anytime I see a 15% off prestige coupon offer in 2019, I will list them below in reverse chronological order. If I am not using my sons’, I will post their codes with the offer details. It will work for the first person to claim it. Whenever I see 20% off one item coupons or 20% off drugstore coupons, I usually don’t list them below. They get listed here or on my Ulta Page when they are available.
While the 10%, 15%, or 20% off prestige coupons only come as few as 5 times a year. There is always a coupon available. You can check to see if the general coupon applies to your order.

15% Off Prestige Coupon Offer 1 (April 2019)
*There was a February 2nd Prestige coupon, but it was for 20% off. As such, details are in the 20% off prestige article.
The first 15% off prestige offer for 2019 released on April 12th. It is only for UltaMate members as Platinum and Diamond members received a 20% off prestige coupon on April 10th. It is valid through April 19th at 2am CT. There is an in-store coupon with this one. Not valid on Dyson, Kiehl’s Since 1851, CHANEL, Beauty Steals®, Beauty Deals, or Spring Haul Event Offers. This is my son’s coupon. It will work once for the first person to claim it.
My other son did not get an offer at all, but it has been a while since his last purchase. If you did not trigger an offer, look at your purchase history. That is the most likely cause other than an email issue.
When do 20% off prestige coupons come out? Many offers repeat around the same time each year. See the 2018 offers for more details, but I did quickly recap everything below. Most members of all levels received 8 emailed codes across five rounds of offers. Only Platinum and Diamond members reported receiving 20% off prestige coupons via mail. Some only got them in January. Others only got them in December. Really lucky members got some both rounds. That means UltaMate members received up to 8 unique codes while Platinum and Diamond members received up to 10.
