Ulta Beauty Break Schedule and 2019 Offers

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.

Ulta Beauty Breaks 2018

See the 2019 Beauty Breaks and all 2019 Ulta Beauty Promotions, Deals, Coupons, GWP, Sales, and Events for 2019.


I track all Ulta offers, and this article will cover all Beauty Breaks for 2018. To see how many Beauty Breaks there are, I will number each one. Beauty Breaks are pop-up GWP offers. Most Beauty Breaks get released at 8am PST on Wednesdays. They usually run for 4-6 hours. Every time I see a Beauty Break, I will update this article. The better beauty breaks can disappear before I even wake up (West Coast) so please do not use this article as your only source of Beauty Break notification. If you have not already, subscribe to Ulta emails. Details on most Beauty Breaks get emailed.

Surprise Beauty Breaks (those typically offered outside the normal Wednesday schedule) are not always emailed. Most surprise Beauty Breaks happen on Monday mornings. Monday night is also a popular time for surprise breaks, but they can happen any day or time. The ones that are not emailed are only open to those lucky enough to stumble upon them. All surprise offers I’ve seen are below. My goal with tracking offers is to better predict trends, as many retailers including Ulta repeat offers around the same time each year. This means I can look at the 2018 offers to get an idea of when 2019 offers may arrive. At the very least, it can show me with certainty when a Beauty Break repeats.

I track all Ulta offers, and this article will cover all Beauty Breaks for January, February, and March 2017. There are around 50 Beauty Breaks a year, so I want to split these articles into quarters. Beauty Breaks are pop-up GWP offers. Most Beauty Breaks get released at 8am PST on Wednesdays. They usually run for 4-6 hours. Every time I see a Beauty Break (I am on the West Coast, so please do not use my article as your source of notification), I will update this article until the end of March. If you have not already, subscribe to Ulta emails. There are times when better Beauty Breaks disappear before I even wake up.

Ulta Beauty Breaks November Through December 2016

Let me start this article by stating I do not get advance notice on Beauty Breaks, so I do not want the title to look like click bait. Beauty Breaks are pop-up GWP offers. Most Beauty Breaks get released at 8am PST on Wednesdays. They usually run for 4-6 hours. I’ve decided to track Ulta Beauty Breaks and am linking a couple of months together to limit how many articles I dedicate to one specific type of deal. Every time I see a Beauty Break (I am on the West Coast, so please do not use my article as your source of notification), I will update this article until the end of December. If you have not already, subscribe to Ulta emails. There are times when better Beauty Breaks disappear before I even wake up. Surprise Beauty Breaks (those typically offered outside the normal Wednesday schedule) do not usually get emailed. They are only open to those lucky enough to stumble upon them.

At the very least, it can show me with certainty when a Beauty Break repeats.

I will continue to post offers I am aware of, so no worries if you happen upon this post after the offers above expire. If you have questions about any Ulta Coupon, I go over all types. Targeted Offers are exclusive to UltaMate Members, so I do recommend joining. New members get $10 of their first purchase with a referral. Remember to check all Ulta offers before placing an online order, because there are always general or brand specific offers that are not targeted. Deal stacking is not only allowed, it’s encouraged.

Ulta 20% Off Prestige, a Beauty Break, and Lipstick Queen Let Them Eat Cake At Last!

See the 2019 20% off Prestige Coupon Offers.


Ulta releases 20% off prestige coupons to UltaMate members five times a year: late January, early April, Platinum members in late June 2016, early July for UltaMate, late July for Platinum members (this is the normal time but members who received them in June did not receive the July offer), late October, and Mid December. The July offer was reduced to 10% for non Platinum members in 2015 and 2016. In 2016, the early April offer was also reduced to 10% for non Platinum members. During this promotion, select UltaMate members receive a coupon for $15 off a $50 purchase if they have not shopped in a long time. Each unique coupon is eligible for one online purchase AND one in-store purchase. Coupons emailed have a different code than coupons mailed. If you receive a coupon from both methods, you will have two different online codes and two different in-store bar codes.

Ulta NYX Beauty Break and Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette

A list of all recent Ulta Beauty Breaks.

Ulta typically releases a Beauty Break every Wednesday morning from 10am-2pm PST. A Beauty Break is a GWP that is only available for a very short period. There will be select Wednesdays where they do not release one and other times when they pop up at a different day or time, like Monday evening, Saturday morning, Sunday morning, and more. While Ulta does email (those who receive emails), these offers and others usually appear in the Gift With Purchase Section before emails go out. Emails stagger, so better Beauty Breaks may run out of inventory before some people receive their emails. People on the east cost have a better chance of scoring a Beauty Break thanks to the time difference. If you wake up and notice an incredible Beauty Break, do not sit on it. These Beauty Breaks never make it to the end of the timeline and weaker ones at times get extended past the deadline. This order was 3x points.

Ulta 20% Off Prestige

See the 2019 20% off Prestige Coupon Offers.


Ulta releases 20% off prestige coupons to UltaMate members five times a year: late January, early April, Platinum members in late June 2016, early July for UltaMate, late July for Platinum members (this is the normal time but members who received them in June did not receive the July offer), late October, and Mid December. The July offer was reduced to 10% for non Platinum members in 2015 and 2016. In 2016, the early April offer was also reduced to 10% for non Platinum members. During this promotion, select UltaMate members receive a coupon for $15 off a $50 purchase if they have not shopped in a long time. Each unique coupon is eligible for one online purchase AND one in-store purchase. Coupons emailed have a different code than coupons mailed. If you receive a coupon from both methods, you will have two different online codes and two different in-store bar codes.

Prestige offers have a few exclusions, so these coupons are not 20% off everything as the ad that comes with coupon states. They exclude: CliniqueLancome, Dermalogica, Dyson, Beauty Steals, and Benefit Brow Bar. Additional exclusions including fragrance and select new releases will be added at times. There are other times throughout the year to get offers for 20% off non-prestige or 20% off a single item, but those are general, multi-use codes. If you have more questions about this or any Ulta Coupon, I go over all types.

Best of Becca Collection

This article covers the original Best of Becca set. I also have a review for Radiant Glow and Blushed Radiance. All of these are 4-piece sets that arrived with a broken piece. The Becca minis in Sephora Favorites sets, like: Bronze Bares All and Paint It Pink arrive in tact, so the problem is how Becca wraps these sets. They are wonderful products, but they are not wrapped well enough for rough shipping and handling. Sephora wraps its favorites sets and does a much better job.

Becca entered the highlighter world with some strong game. The pictures always looked amazing. I got my hands on a sample and found out that the effects were legit and not clever photo editing. While researching which products I wanted to start exploring the brand with, I came across the Best of Becca kit at Ulta. Sadly, it was out of stock, so I decided to wait before purchasing anything. On 05/09/15, I got a Beauty Break offer that looked interesting.

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.
