Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Fall 2019 September 1st through 21st

The Ulta Beauty Fall 2019 21 Days of Beauty will run from September 1st through September 21st. Ulta surprised us with a bonus day on the 22nd, so it was a 22-day event this time. Twice a year, usually starting in March and September, Ulta has a 21 day sale where select brands or items get discounted up to 50% off for one day only. Every day during the semi-annual event there are at least two beauty steals. There are also Hot Buys that run throughout the entire event. Most events also release Beauty Samplers, Try Me Kits. Spring tends to get the better steals. These deals come from the upcoming catalog, and the online link from the special event page. Deals listed in the printed catalog are in-store and online. All online exclusive deals are only listed online. All Steals ship free for Platinum and Diamond members. They ship free with a $50 purchase for UltaMate members.

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty It Brushes for Ulta Love Beauty Fully Buffing Mineral Powder Brush #206 and a Beauty Chat With Julep Founder Jane Park

Twenty-one days is a long time, because the 21 Days of Beauty at Ulta are still running through this Saturday. Read tips for the sale. There are two events happening today that I am partaking in. The first is a steal in today’s event. I’ve tried two of the three It Cosmetics For Ulta Brushes I purchased during the recent 10x points event. I loved both, so I really want to try the $15 brush that usually retails for $30. Jane Park, the Julep Founder, will have a Live Chat from 10am-11am PST this morning. Julep polishes represent well over half of my 400 polishes, and I have a healthy stash of other beauty products from the brand. They’re my favorite, and I find Jane charming and endearing. She was incredibly kind and wonderful at her recent Maven Meet-Up, and I really appreciate that she took the time to “take me to the airport.”

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Urban Decay Afterglow 8 Hour Powder Blush, Free 24 Piece Beauty Bag Platinum Perk, Another Best of Becca Set, and More With a 2000 Point Redemption

See Platinum GWP Bag Offers for 2018.

View detailed instructions on Earning and Redeeming Points at Ulta.

The Fall 21 Days of Beauty is in full swing. Read my overview for tips on the sale. Ulta offered a 24 piece Beauty Bag as a Platinum Perk with a $125 purchase. This is not a common offer during a major promotion, like the Days of Beauty. These monster bags are more common when Ulta actually needs to push us into an order. There is no expiration date listed on this offer, so it is available while supplies last. I had a few (dreaded full price) items I’ve been waiting to purchase. Since I wanted to get this bag, I decided to get them with some steals I was going to get anyway. It also helps that I redeemed 2000 points for a $125 credit, so I did not pay full price on anything.

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Platinum Steal Becca Mineral Blush

See Platinum Perks for 2018.

The Fall 21 Days of Beauty officially kicked off yesterday. Read my overview for tips on the sale. There are at least three Platinum exclusive steals throughout the event. Ulta could surprise us with more, but only three are known. Today’s offer is also the most appealing to me. Better offers tend to sell out early, so I always recommend arriving as soon as the sale starts. Since Ulta is on central time, steals go live at 10pm PST and come down the following day at 9:59pm PST. It is always possible new GWP offers or Beauty Breaks will release in the morning, but waiting for them is always a risk. I’ve successfully waited and have missed out from waiting.

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Fall 2016 September 4th through 24th

I love the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty. Twice a year, usually starting in March and September, Ulta has a 21 day sale where select brands or items are deeply discounted for one day only. The fall event will run from 09/04/16 through 09/24/16. These deals come from the upcoming catalog, and the online link from the special event page. Deals listed in the catalog are in-store or online. Any deal added after the catalog was printed was online. All online exclusive deals are only listed online. All Steals ship free for Platinum members and with a $50 purchase for UltaMate members. I am a huge fan of redeeming 2000 points during this event when items are at least 50% off, so I hope Platinum members got a chance to stock up on points during the recent 10x points eventContinue reading

My Ulta 2016 Birthday Gift (Part Two) is My Beauty Steal Score

The 2017 gifts have been announced. I started a new article for the new gift.

The 2016 free Ulta Birthday Gift is changing every quarter. Join UltaMate rewards before your birthday to get your free gift. Starting with a referral link will also give you $10 off your fist purchase. I have a general article that covers the gift for each quarter, and the quarter two gift has updated. When I went in for my free brow appointment, I picked up my free Ulta Birthday Gift. Platinum members also get a $10 coupon good toward any product. I saved my coupon until today, because there was something I wanted to pick up from the 21 Days of Beauty.

Benefit Brow Bar Service (My free Redemption)

The Benefit Brow Bar specializes in brow mapping to customize your brows to your eye shape. I’ve visited a Benefit Brow Bar at Macy’s and many times at Ulta and have almost always had a great experience. There was one time my brow specialist took my brows too thin. As someone who kept a more natural brow (even through the 90s when thin brows were in), it was disappointing. However, the same specialist always did a good job before that and after that. It was the one time I forgot to remind her I liked them as full as possible. Even thin, they always look perfectly placed because of the brow mapping technique they use.

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Steal Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush Peach Beach (At Last)!

The Fall 2016 Event

Today was the day I was most looking forward to in the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty. There are four steals happening today, and I wanted all of them. This is the first and last time I will probably purchase all four steals in one day. Of course, I was ready to go right at 10pm Pacific time (Ulta crosses each day over at midnight and runs on Central time). If you have not already laid out your purchase plans, I have all the steals for this event (gathered from multiple sources) laid out with some basic tips. I also go over a more detailed shopping plan from a previous event that applies to the different steals here.

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Spring 2016 03/13/16 through 04/02/16

The Fall 2016 Event

All calendars (online, in-store, and Ulta brand) are available below. All steals are shipping free for Platinum members. The minimum for everyone else is back to the $50 minimum. I love the Ulta 21 Days of Beauty. Twice a year, usually starting in March and September, Ulta has a 21 day sale where select brands or items are deeply discounted for one day only. The spring event (which is usually more impressive that the fall event) will run from 03/13/16 through 04/02/16. The second 20% prestige coupon should arrive shortly after this sale wraps, which would be on 04/03/16 if it followed the same pattern as last year. The January 2016 20% off prestige offer did not follow the 2014 and 2015 pattern though. These deals come from the upcoming catalog, and the special event page online that is updated now.

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty, Redeeming 2000 Points, and My Nearly Free Order

See The Fall 2016 Event

View detailed instructions on Earning and Redeeming Points at Ulta.

Ulta runs some great promotions during the year, but my favorite is 21 Days of Beauty. They do it twice a year (usually March and September). This year, the fall event ran from the 6th through the 26th of September. That means the event is officially over. The spring event is always better, so fret not if you missed the fall event. If you need any tips on how to make the most of the next event, I give them in this plan. Check all offers on the special event page.

Beauty Birthday Offer Ulta

The 20162017, 2018, and 2019 birthday gift articles are up.

There are so many retailers with fabulous birthday offers. Do not forget to check the birthday offers before your big day arrives. When I learn of a new offer or a change in offers, I update it. Even though I was not really shopping around my birthday, because life in general got in the way, there were a few Birthday gifts I had to pick up. The second one, from Ulta, was another completely free one. It can only be picked up in store.

I give my birthdate upon retailer request. On 03/01/15, offers started coming in. They continued to roll in throughout March with most of them arriving on my actual birthday, March 15th. Remember to save some of your birthday shopping budget for your actual birthday, because so many offers will not come in until then. For the retailers who send the offers after your birthday, they seriously need to step up their game. As I mention on the birthday offer page, some offers are general. Others are unique. If you try to redeem before you get your own unique code, it will not work. Also, check the main retailer page before placing your orders, because the birthday offers are not always the best available offers.

Ulta 21 Days of Beauty Shopping Plan

The Fall 2016 Event

I love the Ulta Days of Beauty.  Twice a year, usually starting in March and September, Ulta has a 21 day sale where select brands or items are deeply discounted for one day only.  During the Spring 2014 sale, I went a little overboard buying things.  Spring 2015 went better.  It helped that the sale this year was not as impressive as last, but there were still some great deals.  There are also 21 day Love Your Hair Events twice a year, which I will cover later.  Check all offers on the special event page.

I highly recommend studying the brochure, which is posted online before the sale.  UltaMate members should also get a physical copy in the mail.  It is a good idea to plan your purchases ahead of time, so you are ready to strike the moment the deal releases.  Ulta runs on Central time, so daily steals are available right at 10pm PST.  That usually means steals from the previous day disappear at 10pm, so do not plan to place an order right before bed time if you’re on the West Coast.  While the deals have run a little over, Ulta has also cut them off right on time.  Some deals sell out quickly, so waiting may not work anyway.  The best deals are usually gone when you wake up in the morning from people who started shopping right as the day switched over.
